Wonderful family oriented resort; wifi needs improvement
dhkim, Oakland, California

We stayed seven nights in August and had a great time. Here are the pros and cons: The PROs: •FOOD: The main buffet at Kukulcan was excellent with varied offerings of meats, poultry, fish, salads, and fruits. Mexican was the only weak spot. Mixing it up with a la carte restaurants also made it less monotonous; Mikado was the best among the a la carte restaurants we tried. Many thanks to Alfredo, Luis, Noemi, and Omar at Kukulcan for their service! We also liked the service better at Coba than Tulum. •FACILITIES: The room was nice and spacious. The room service was excellent; a small tip was all it took to keep the minibar well stocked. The hotel grounds are immaculate. We did not see a single piece of trash the whole week. •SERVICE: Everybody was courteous and hard working despite the heat. Check-in and check-out went smoothly. The CONS: •WIFI: This could be much better. They give you one hour at the lobby but you can't start and stop so you really have one shot; thus, all the people looking at phones at 9 am in the lobby. One week of wifi for one phone in the room is $59; $10 more for three more phones. I could not get this to work on mine and nobody seemed to have answers. •BEACH: The 10-minute trolley to Tulum hotel for the beach didn't bother me. But the beach itself is rocky and so so. I wouldn't pay more for Tulum hotel for the beach. Nothing beats the white sands of real Tulum 25 minutes away by taxi or colectivo. More TIPS: •Xel Ha (If you have kids, this water park is a must) •Cenotes (Great snorkeling at dos Ojos 3 miles away) •Colectivos (Only 40 pesos one way to Tulum or Playa del Carmen with these local informal minivan shuttles; catch it just outside the main gate by Hacienda shops). It was our first all-inclusive experience. It will not be our last. More>

Fantastic holiday with sad ending

As many people have said this is a great resort but its large- over 1000 rooms in blocks of 18 set around 2 large pool areas.Do not be put off as we had 2 rooms in block 6( bottom area) and it only takes 5 minutes to walk to the main reception- see attached map.Trains are frequent and we never had any issues getting a seat to any destination on our site or the other hotels in our group.We booked 10 nights in the Coba with a room upgrade to superior.This gave us a larger room with huge bed but also 5 al'carte meals in the 7 restaurants over the 3 hotels.. The main buffet with typical with all sorts of foods,fruits, cooked meats, breads etc with no restrictions on how much you ate or drank- just tip your waiter and all will be well.The grounds are immaculate and trimmed to perfection- no litter or leaves just the wildlife to see, iguanas, caotes and birds all around the park.The main areas are the pools- both with swim up bars and toilets near by,They are only 1.1m deep so no diving and where beautifully warm- almost too warm during our august stay.At 9pm every night there is a stage act in the main hall.The Michael Jackson was superb, the magic act- where did the 2nd girl come from ?????, street dance, grease show- all great and about 40 mins each. The only grip is the wifi- 1hr per devise on the main lobby- but remember to turn your wifi off afterwards.If to set to auto connect if you walk through in the morning -it connects and you will lose your hour.Room safes are $5/day and remember your 1000 pesos to escape mexico in cash.Overall the hotel, food and grounds are great and the service was impeccable during our stay If you have small children please please watch them at all times near the pools.Yes there is a life guard but they cant be everywhere and whilst we where there a tragedy occurred to a small girl.Please make sure they have arm bands or better still a inflatable life vest as the mothers cry's are not to be heard again.The staff battles for 40 minutes with the ambulance to save her but with no joy. Please make sure this doesn't happen again. More>

Beautiful resort, lots to do, lots to eat, gorgeous pools & friendly staff for the most part. Ran into a few glitches however... When we got there it was our first time ever visiting, it was very unclear on how to get our luggage to our room, the trolley transportation had no organization... And was like this for our entire stay...the mini bar in our room was rarely restocked with water (essential since you cannot drink/use tap water) same with the coffee area in the room, rarely restocked. It was impossible to get a hold of the front desk for service using the phone in the room, no one would ever pick up, which was frustrating since we were about a 10-15 walk from the lobby, we had to walk up there many of times to get service.

Bad start

When we first arrived at the coba, the main drive and grounds looked very nice, the reception was lovely, then we were taken to our room, the room smelt of damp, i should have said there and then i wasnt excepting this room, but it was the start of my holiday and i didnt want to spoil it, we unpacked then noticed the patio door didnt lock, the coffie maker didnt have a socket to be pluged into, the front of the socket had been removed. By the second day we noticed the fridge didnt work, so we pulled it forward to find that it wasnt pluged in as the socket didnt have a front either, i then went to reception to complain, that day everything was then fixed, then the next day it was raining, i woke up to find a big puddle at the side of my bed, and a big bit of plaster had bubbled on the ceiling and it was leaking onto the floor, back down to reception, to complain again..... We then were told to wait about untill 3pm for a new room, the receptionist wasn't very nice, none of this was our fault, you just dont expect this from a bahia, we have been to mexico a few times and never had this bad of a room, it was terrible and our clothes were still smelling of damp after we came home and washed them...... The complex was nice enough, iv been to much better for the same price..... The second room we had was much better, nothing great but compared to the first room it was a palace . More>

Great resort!

Very clean place, friendly and helpful staff with integrity. I didn't know what to expect since I read some negative reviews here. The food was great, nothing was stolen from us, not a single cockroach spotted, no one came in to our room unannounced other than housekeeping. Overall this is a wonderful resort. Do not read the bad reviews and let it change your mind! One piece of advice, if you're coming here for the beach try to stay in Príncipe Tulum as it is on the beach. If you stay in Coba it's a long walk in the scorching heat, or you have to get on their trolley that circles the resort every 5-10 mins. It kind of got a little irritating having to wait for transportation for the beach and entertainment at night. No other complaints. More>
