Have been to to Riviera Maya 7 or 8 times, all at different hotels. This last time however, I heard good reviews about the Coba, and have stayed on the Tulum side, so thought we would try it. Booked it 4 1/2 mo. earlier, and we know what to expect with the food and hit or miss things. At the...

Jan 2004 we visited Grand Bahia and returned on December 5th for a week and we stayed at the Coba section of the resort. We traveled with Apple Vacation, they are wonderful as always! Van ride to the resort took about an hour and check in was a little rocky. We traveled as 3 couples and 2 of the reservations...

Amazing week at an excellent resort. Food is good, weather is good and the people couldn't be more welcoming. This was our 2nd visit to this resort. Rooms are more than adequate for our needs.

We stayed at the Bahia Principe Tulum years ago and thought this would be similar. The rooms are nice, but the service has been terrible, with the exception of Antiono in the Royal Golden Club, but you can't run a resort on one staff member.

First didn't do sufficient research. This hotel is 1.5 hours from airport. The airport experience was daunting as no one warned us of the vulchers lurking under signs offering maps and information.
