We lived our stay here, food and fruit were incredible. Love the fact that we can use the other resorts, we never got bored. Staff was very friendly, and the grounds were exceptionally clean. We will definitely be back in the future.

There are a lot of good reviews about this hotel and those are true. The hotel is very nice in a good location but a little far from airport. This was our 2nd time. We were treated nicely, request for the room was fulfilled. The distance from your room to the beach is a little far but it all depends...

Here we go. 1st of all, let me start out by saying we are seasoned all inclusive vacation travellers and have visited Bahia resorts in the past and have loved them. This resort, although very nice, didn't meet the 5 star bar that was promised. The rooms were quite nice and quite spacious, but the service was not what we've...

We stayed in Coba. Beautiful pools and beautiful beach. Resort grounds are immaculate. Food was good. Preferred Tulum buffet and Tulum pool. Tequila and La Gran Toruga were our favorite ala cartes. Check in was awful. Waited in a humid hot lobby (no air or ceiling fans were on). We arrived at 2pm and didnt get a room until 4:30....

Beautiful resort. Terrible service at Premiere Lobby Bar, only 1 bartender in the evening. The bartender during the day is fabulous. Front desk attendants at Premiere Lobby were very rude and impatient. Nadia was very nice, but overly inquisitive every day asking if everything was ok.

We're staying here at the Gran Bahia Principe Coba right now - it's fantastic.
