Went down to the Gran Bahia Principe Coba for a wedding, guests ranged from age 6 up to age 60. Check in itself was pretty easy, but we were quite annoyed that our room was not ready on time and when our room was finally reading, our bags were not to be seen for another hour. But the room itself...

This place is great for couples and family. The service was great. Just don't forget to bring lots of one dollar bills for tips. The staff do not make a lot of money and I could not have asked for better service. Taking the little carts around from one place to another was easy. The carts come every 10 to...

First time at this resort and we had a good time. We had to attend a wedding therefore we didn't have enough time to explore other attraction. The wedding went as planned and we will be back some other time but we will stay close to the beach.

I've been to a lot of All Inclusives but this was the biggest. If you like the Beach more than the pool and don't want to waste time waiting for the golf cart trolley system then book Taluum or Akumal as these sister resorts are smaller and closer to the beach; yet you still have access to the Coba. Although...
