We just returned from another great week at this amazing resort. The grounds are spotless. The staff is excellent. The food is wonderful. I would highly recommend this resort. Our room was kept very clean and the refrigerator was well stocked. Our maid however even though we tipped daily did not leave any of the special towel animals we have...

We just got back from an awesome week at the Grand Bahia Coba. We stayed April 16th to 23rd 2017. We flew Air Transat Club Class and it was a great experience. We also chose the Royal Golden Package for the resort and very happy with that. We had 1.5 days of heavy rain but it was still warm and...

Stayed for one week at Coba with my boyfriend. I have stayed at akumel when I was a kid with my family and it was beautiful, that is why I wanted to go back ten plus years later. I was very disappointed. The food was very good the buffets were all amazing and the a la carte restaurants were good,...

We had a wonderful vacation at the Grand Bahia Principe Coba. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in building 18 which was close to the pool with the swim up bar. Since the ocean is a good walk/shuttle away it was nice to have the pool right by us. Almost every room at Coba is close to...

Excellent resort!! Stayed at GBP Tulum before and Coba is even better as the shuttle drops you at a much better beach. Tulum beach is rocky..you have to walk a bit south to get to the real nice part.

Always a great stay at the Coba Premier and Golden lobbys. The food is wonderful. The service is wonderful. The rooms are great. My only complaint is out of the hotels control and that is guests with children taking their children to the swim up bars. Leaving the children to splash and scream at the bar area when child friendly...
