    6th stay - Fantastic as always!

    I`m a little late in writing this review as we were there April 21 to May 3. A wonderful 12 days for our 6th visit at this resort. We are never disappointed when we go but I have to say, the service was even better this time (hard to be better than excellent) :) From the moment we checked in to the moment we left, we were so happy to have chosen the Coba once again. Pros: As mentioned previously, the service, is top notch. The room is spacious and very clean. There is not a bad building at this resort. The buildings surround the entire property. For breakfast, Alba was our waitress and she made every morning special (starting with my two mimosas). Ana at the Casita snackbar served us for lunch and has been for the past six years (she is such a sweatheart). For dinner Alfredo at the buffet is so energetic, has a great memory and doesn`t make you wait for anything. The entertainment team at the activity pool was exceptional this year (much better than last year). Luna, Aldo, Carlos, Gabriel and Luisa are the ones that stood out for us. They take the time to talk with you and invite you to tall the activities. They make being out in the hot sun so much fun EVERY DAY. Our favourite bartender is Pedro (he moves around a lot) but we found him on most days. For the A la cartes, we went to the Mediterranean, Tequilla (Mexican), Gran Tortuga (Brazilian) and Portofino (Italian). The only one that we didn`t enjoy was the Mediterranean, the other three were exactly how we remember them.....DELICIOUS. CONS: none for us :) We will definitely be going back again next year and most likely be joining some friends there. Keep up the great work, you are amazing! What a FANTASTIC trip!

    Wonderful Hotel and complex

    Just had the great pleasure of visiting Mexico for 2 weeks. The Grand Bahia Principe is the place to stay, great suites, food, drink but what makes it so special are all of the staff who run like clockwork, and nothing is too much trouble for them even in this heat of 30 degrees and more. They are so cheerful. You can visit all of the areas, Ackumal, Tulum and Coba, and you will be transported to all of these hotels and complexes, with regular golf carts to get you too and fro and lovely music and drivers wherever you go. I would love to come again, there is so much to do and explore, you need a month here. Gracias Don Pablo for your vision of the perfect get away.

    First time EVER traveling outside Canada. Everything about this trip was awesome! We booked through itravel2000 and flew air transat. Flights were on time and easy to navigate and the transportation from the airport to the hotel and vice versa were timely and very courteous. Upon arriving at the resort and making our way to a semi crowded front desk we were immediately taken to a trolley which transported us to a private lobby where our check-in was flawless. The room was very spacious and comfortable, well stocked and clean. The staff was the main selling point for our return trip there. They were the most amazing people! So friendly, always smiling despite the heat and their long days. The pools were fantastic as were the entertainment and activities. The buffet varied each day and the a la cartes were simple to book and again the food was delicious and the service was so far above the board. Even if you have children I would recommend this resort hands down! We are planning to make a second trip possibly as early as October this year.

    No beach

    The hotel is good overall. At first we got a room smelling really bad (mold) but the front desk managed to get us a new room the second day. I would recommend going to the Akumal resort instead. The Coba resort has no actual access to the beach, you have to go to the beach at the Tulum resort which is very bad!!!!! The view is horrible and so much seaweed, no one goes in the ocean because of how bad it is. I have been to a lot of all inclusive and this one is the worst if you want to enjoy the beach.
