#1, the food was incredible. From choice, to quality, taste 2nd to none! Our last ala-cart was the Brazilian. They brought us 7 different cuts of beef! Come hungry! The hibiscus bartender, Jose Severiano was excellent! Super fun, friendly and kept the refreshments coming with a smile and a laugh. Cant say enough about the staff. Jose was by far the best bar tender we experienced!

Another AMAZING holiday

This was mine and my sisters 4th visit to the Grand Bahia Principe Coba and it didn't disappoint. Arriving at the hotel we were greeted by the beautiful structure of the reception and foyer of the hotel. At check in there was a very small wait but we were seen to as quickly as possible and then we headed off to our room. The concierge brought our bags to our room whilst we got settled in. The room was large with 2 small double beds pushed together, a sofa and table and chairs. You could not fault the cleanliness of the room and the en suite. The aim of this holiday was to just chill out and relax but to have some fun as well. So to do this we headed to the Coba entertainment pool. We found 2 sun loungers next to the pool and that's where we set up camp. We got involved from day 1 and joined in with the entertainment that was on offer each day. We did the fun aqua aerobics, played the crazy games in the morning and in the afternoon, took part in the poolside dance classes, played water volleyball and did as many of the other activities that were on offer on a daily basis. The Coba entertainment team were brilliant, they made sure each day was fun filled and they were really friendly to all the guests. A special thanks to Alejandro, Mauricio, Josimar, Tony, Jhair, Esmerelda, Pamela, Eduardo (tarzan), Luis Angel, Monkey boy and Taiz for their hard work and effort every day keeping the fun going from the morning right through until the night. Not only do they spend the day getting as many people involved in the activities, but at night they put shows on. We watched the Lion King and Frozen which start at 8pm in the theatre and they were fab. We went both weeks to watch the shows and loved them. There are are also shows every night at 9pm apart form Thursday which is the Mexican Fiesta night. We went over tot he hacienda for this and it is an extra cost for you, but it's worth going along to. Our breakfast was made super special each morning by Angel, Ana and the team in the middle section. Really friendly and efficient team. What else can I put in this review? You will never go hungry, the buffet is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are 2 snack bars in the Coba resort. The 1 by the entertainment pool is open from 12noon daily and the other by the quiet pool is open 24 hours. There are also a wide range of A la carte restaurants that all serve great food. The beach is lovely, you will need to take the onsite long bus to the beach. But these run very frequently and get you all around the resort. We spent the money we took on tipping the staff, the Mexican Fiesta tickets and we also had a little flutter in the onsite casino. Once you are here, you don't need to spend anything. But we always ensure we tip the staff. In a nutshell we love this resort, we love the staff that work here, we love the entertainment and we love the weather.

Cold food in buffets

Coba and tulum seem to be haveing trouble keeping food hot, all the staff are really nice hard workers,the 24 hour snack bar at tulum , have a board up saying you must wear footwear, no wet feet, dressed properly, none of these are adhered to ,people getting food with sweary armpits, tee shirts req, the price of a safe is daylight robbery, much too dear, will not be back unless you can feed me hot food, cold food will make you ill , like the letter you gave us , illnesses in resort

don't listen to advise of thomson at home for currency exchange.

i am currently on holiday in mexico. everything with the holiday is great apart from the advise we received about our currency exchange back home st the thomson office. i asked what the best currency was to bring and was told the mexican peso was a little better with the rate than dollars so changed most our money to this. at resort today i went to book a trip to xel-ha. its $89 each but because we are paying in peso it's 1780 which works out about £20 each dearer. so £60 for the 3 of us, in my eyes is quite a difference. if we had known this before then obviously would of changed all our money to the dollar. so my advise would be don't take advise on money exchange. ps the hotel/resort reps works out alot cheaper than booking with your holiday reps ie thomson.... my excellent rating is on the hotel and staff, Not thomson....

perfect paradise
