Excellent services, very friendly staff, beautiful resort that I would recommend to anyone.

Terrific all inclusive by Bahia Principe Sian Kaan

With four properties at the resort we were never bored. The staff is awesome and we never were tired of the food because of the many specialty restaurants. Did I mention the buffets were the best ive had in 30+years of travel? There is a courtesy shuttle system to go wherever on the property and security was never an issue, I am critical but fair with my reviews and I give Bahia Principe 10 of 10

Bahia Principe Coba
Mar 30 2018
Mt wife and I stayed at a Bahia Principe in the Dominican Republic and were quite pleased with our stay. This time, we at the Coba resort in Mexico, we were disappointed. The bar service was not adequate, not enough bar tenders. We would go to the bar near the pool or in the lobby, the usual wait was approximately 20 minutes to get a drink. The drinks were extremely sweet and not very good. Also, the wait staff in the restaurants seemed like weren't well staffed. Long wait for wine or water with our meals. The smaller restaurants where you make a reservation were much better. The staff were all very friendly but seemed in adequate to the task of providing timely service. The beaches were also somewhat disappointing. The shuttle to the beach was long, I wasn't able to swim, the wwater was too shallow at the cut off points in the water. Also, the beach bars were fairly far off from the beach and the lines to get a drink were very long. The room was nice, the place was clean and everyone was friendly. The food was just ok. We have stayed at several resorts through appe vacations, this was the first time we were disappointed. If this had been our first experience, we would not have continued using apple as the rating didn't seem to match the quality of the food/bar service or the service.

The room was disappointing compared tot he rest of the resort. Our room smelled moldy and we asked for a new vent filter and only received an air freshener. I had to go to the clinic for shots due to an allergic reaction to the mold

Coba stay
Mar 06 2018
the air conditioning did not work in the rooms. we have stayed there before and had similar problems, so will not stay there again! Room was very humid, had ants, and the shower leaked all over the bathroom floor, so was very hazardous. The beach was full of seaweed and smelled awful, but that was nothing they could control. pools were great, food was wonderful, and staff was very gracious, but COBA rooms need to be updated!

This was a great vacation, this is the fifth time I have stayed at this hotel. No surprises, staff, food, cleanliness all exactly what I expected.

Basically this was a wonderful destination. They definnately could find the hot level for food in the BUFFETS. The Apple rep. the day before check out was short with us. Perhaps the lack of additional bookings was his problem. The resort was beautiful, we had a great time. The eco/water system smelled like sewage when they watered the lawns. We would consider coming back.
Customer Rating: 

Very nice, especially for the price
Feb 22 2018
My only negative comments (and they hardly affected my happiness at the hotel) would be that the lighting in the bathroom is awful and the room needs more outlets. We had leaks in the bathroom and hall from the HVAC system which really didn't affect us, but we did call attention to it during our stay and at checkout. Everyone of the employees were incredibly pleasant and super hard working! The little carts that ran all around the property were great, and very accomodating. We did one day trip snorkeling in Cozumel and our guides Migueal and Havier were SUPER! My only other "complaint" would be the lack of chairs on the beach, and people putting towels on them but they would stay empty for hours. I chose this hotel because I had stayed at their Punta Cana location 2 years ago, and would defintately consider revisiting in the future.

Excellent resort except for the beach

We were there April 1st-8th. Resort is big, clean and very well maintained. Staff is very polite. Rooms are kept very clean, but there are no queen beds; the choice is either one king or two double beds and an additional sofa bed. Food is excellent with plenty of choices. Don't miss the nightly shows (9:00 PM) which are very nice. The beach is rather ugly and a little far; at Tulum resort or Akumal (no using of facilities or drinks at Akumal), not Coba. The breakwaters have ruined the view and also a lot of seaweed. The pools are very nice though, but if you want seats in the shade, you need to reserve them early in the morning. Overall a very agreeable experience. Kids loved it.

Just wonderful

We decided to take our 4 children (ages 18, 13, 4 year old twins) to this resort during the school holidays. We booked through TUI and heard lots of good things via friends. On arrival the staff couldn’t do enough for us. This was our first all inclusive experience so it felt strange not having to do anything. We were taken to our rooms and our bags were there waiting for us. The rooms were exceptionally clean, bedding and towels changed every day, and very comfortable beds. Lots of delicious restaurants to choose from, all exceptional! Felt odd eating such a grand meal and not paying for it! Breakfast was a buffet, the choice was varied and constantly topped up. The waiting staff were fantastic, so friendly and happy to help in anyway they could. The pools were cleaned every morning, life guards patrolling them. The bars and cafes surrounding them were easily accessible. The events staff kept everyone enteyall day long. Lots of activities such as stretching classes, aqua aerobics, water polo, Zumba etc. They were all fun guys, full of life and great at their jobs. The evenings there was plenty to do also, including live bands, kids club and shows. We had one day of rain but the entertainment staff continued the activities in the lobby and the kids club was open for activities. I honestly cannot fault this beautiful resort and it’s staff. Will definitely be returning in the future.

Would recommend this resort to everyone

If you are in SanKan or Akumel also Tulum resort, stop by the Golden lobby bar and see bartender IVAN, HE IS ONE OF THE BEST BARTENDERS there, great service as well as all the other amenities in this wonderful resort.Food choices a plenty, could never go hungry. Would recommend the new restauraunt Masua as one of the best a la cartes.

My room safe was broken into by hotel staff
Manu J, New York City, New York

My room safe was broken into by hotel staff and sub director "Edorado Sousa" at front desk at that time handled the situation very poorly, did not offer any support or acknowledged that it was wrong or offered any compensation of any kind, refused to even call the cops. My friends with their family was visiting for spring break/ 3rd week of march so i decided to join them for 4 days. i was staying alone in my room, on 2nd last day of my stay when i returned from the beach , my room key was not working, i went to the front desk and i was informed by a supervisor "Angela" that my room safe was broken into by hotel staff and she would take me to my room to show me what has taken place. reason i got from hotel staff was very bizarre, they told me that some guest called the front desk and told them that there room safe was still locked with a lock, may be by last occupant and they need some one to come into the room and open the safe so they can use it. so hotel staff went into my room, broke into my safe !!! this made no sense to me, if the other guest is not in the room, hotel staff just go into any ones room and break into the safe ? my belongings were all over the room, clearly some one was staying in that room and if the guest is not present in the room, you go ahead and break the safe ? this was a very bizarre explanation, to top it all, sub director spoke very rudely to me and his explanation was that it was just a mistake as if tis happens all the time and it is very normal and happens all the time. i was shocked and felt very unsafe in this hotel after my meeting with this sub director. he Offered no words of support, showed no kindness or understanding to what i was feeling or going thru. he was extremely rude, offered no compensation to what i have lost or to make things right and show some degree of customer care. i asked to call the cops and file a official complaint, for that too he told me do it urself , we dont call cops. it was 9 pm on wed night, he took full advantage of my situation there as i was alone and knew that i will not to go police station at 9pm by myself. this is really shameful that how this hotel management treats their customer. next day when i was checking out i informed them that i am missing $200 from my safe, they asked me if i had taken the money out from ATM which is located in their lobby otherwise there is no proof. you break into my room safe and i have to prove that i have lost money and my sleep. i would not go back to this hotel or any sister hotels in any country. i will also warn every friend, family member, any acquaintance not to ever take vacation in any hotel owned by this chain. this kind of incident leaves you feeling very nervous, unsafe or ever trusting that your belongings are safe in the room or the safe and you dont feel safe staying there . i couldn't sleep all night and couldn't wait to check out next day. i have been to many other resorts in cancun/ riviera maya area and this is the 1st time when hotel management was so incapable of taking care of issues such as this and treated their customer so rudely.

Could not have asked for better!

My family and I visited this beautiful resort April 5th-12th. 1st trip to Mexico 2nd to a Bahia property When booking we asked to be on high floor, king bed and close to the other family we were traveling with. Check in was pleasantly fast and easy, although our room was not ready we grabbed a quick bite to eat checked back in and were off to our room. All requests made were granted with the added bonus of being centralized to the lobby, buffet and a path way away to a pool. Our room was large and clean with a comfortable bed, fully stocked fridge and bathroom amenities. My son said the bed (seating couch) was very comfy and had no trouble getting a good nights rest. Throughout the week our maid kept our room clean and well stocked. The complex is as many have said large but well cared for and beautiful, you will always see people working. There is a trolly system always going around (never waited more than 3-5 min) The pools are busy and we found it hard to find a seat with shade which meant we had to join in on the towel game. Getting up at 6am just to ensure relief from the hot sun sucked as there are signs posted (no reservations aloud) but not once did we see this enforced. We only made it over to the family pool once during our visit as we found it to be way over crowded but we did find it more lively and offered way more entertainment than the pool we chose to stay at. Hibiscus? Pool bar was ran with only one waiter which made for some very long wait times but given the amount of people at any given time he did a great job. The Beach is definitely in my opinion nothing to write home about and we only visited once during our stay which lasted less than an hour. Getting a sun bed mid afternoon was easy but the amount of seaweed washing up was a big factor for leaving. No fault at all of the resorts or the workers who worked tirelessly to clean it up. Food was plentiful no matter where you ate the food was fantastic full of flavour and choices. You will never go hungry :) All workers we had encountered were welcoming, pleasant and carried positive attitudes. We set aside a fair amount every trip just for tips and this was the first resort we have been to where tipping was truly optional. Not once did we feel pressure to tip which we still did but was a nice change to receive the same level of service if we didn’t. We went into town 5th ave, via public transit for 40 pesos per person each way. Had a great time and felt safe would do it again without a second thought. Nightly entertainment only watched Michael Jackson. The effects are great show was good but again nothing to write home about and I would say I’ve seen better in Cuba. They have singers by the lobby/buffet before the nightly shows and after which is nice to enjoy while sipping on a drink. Not once were we approached to attend the “time share” breakfast although we did receive a note in our room about a “gift” Did not redeem threw it away and that was it for the week. Wonderful if you ask me as we have traveled to some that non stop harass you about attending the pitch I am horrible at names but I would like to mention the 2 I remember *Luis in the buffet, this man was pleasant,kind and never stopped moving. Luis always made sure your glass was full and you were enjoying your meal. *Victor the bellboy very kind and talked to us about Mexico and it’s history we enjoyed our interaction with him. We checked out Tulum but didn’t use any restaurants or swam in the pools as we felt Coba suited us just fine and had everything we were looking for All in all this would have to be the best trip we have had and worth every penny which we feel we got a very good price. We will return maybe for longer or try another resort in the complex
