My friend and I stayed the week of Valentine's day and it was amazing! The actual resort is about an hour away from the airport in Cancun. The resort is beautiful, and the grounds are huge! Shuttle buses ran frequently which made it easy to get around. There was lots to do during the day, so there was never a...

I read reviews almost daily prior to our stay Feb 17 - 24. If the management would actually take to heart the recommendations this place could easily be a 5 star. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and kept up meticulously. The trams are frequent and you never wait more than 5 min to travel anywhere on the resort. The pools...

I would rate this with 3 stars 1/2 Cons: resort too big, huge.While I am an active person and exercise 6 times a week in a gym, I actually got bored walking every morning to the beach.It is a 10 mins walk ( don't bother remeber the turistcar route as it stops to all hotels which mean you have a...

We stayed at Grand Bahia Coba from 4th feb to 11 feb 2017. We enjoyed our stay and had great time. Just to point it out, dull room pictures on internet does not do the justice. Pros: 1. Huge section of food in buffet and very nice a la carte restaurants 2. Very clean place 3. People works very hard,...

My husband, 9 year old son and I have just spent two weeks at the Coba hotel. Firstly I recommend a private transfer from the airport as this allowed us to get there quicker! Check in was quick and we were taken to our room and luggage delivered by the porter. You are allowed to book 3 speciality restaurants per...

So I'm currently staying here room 31528 and everything was great. It's my second time in Mexico. I've since stayed at the hotel sensatori player del carmen which was out this world. After a few days here I thought this hotel super exceeded sensatori but..... In 9 days our mini bar has been restocked 3 times. I had to leave...

Brief summary: - It is a large property, we don't mind walking but by the end we even started to take the tram. We never did walk to the beach but I would guess it would be a good 10 minutes at a decent pace. - It is family based - Service and activity staff are great, lobby staff not...

This place is great... 3 days into 15 day stay... not sure what the haters are talking about... foods good, beach great, staff rock... its Mexico at its best. Haters need to lighten up or stay home. Just slow down and love the sun.

This was the third time I was at this resort in 2016. I went down with my 23 year old daughter for Xmas. We arrived Xmas eve, the check-in took only 15 minutes and our bags were taken directly to our room. The weather was awesome, we spent Xmas day on the beach and at the pool bar. Spending the...

This was our first trip to Mexico. We had low expectations but still had some disappointments: 1. fridge in room not working. Took them 2 days to fix, and when fixed, the fridge door would fall off. Had to carefully place door back. Fridge didn't keep contents cold, only cool. 2. Phone didn't ring. We went with another couple, and...
