I took my family (5 adults) on this trip in May after researching TA reviews. I have been to all inclusive resorts the last 3 years in this area and this is the most disappointing. The buffet food was bland with minimal diversity. Bell and House keeping service was excellent but front desk service was poor. We had 3 rooms...

I'm sure Grand Bahia Principe Coba is similar to the other all inclusive resorts in the Riviera Maya area. So the distinguishing feature comes down to service, and that's where they fell down - big time! Our family of 4 arrived, and we were given a Jr. Suite with one king bed. Wouldn't you think based on the number of...

We have visited many other all inclusive resorts in various parts of the world, we have also previously been to GBP Jamaica too. This was by far our best experience overall and in terms of value for money, destination and quality. As a package holiday from the UK with Virgin Holidays, you could not really beat it @ around £100...

My husband and I spent a week at this resort. It was our first time in Mexico and first time at an all inclusive resort. This place exceeded our expectations!
