We just returned from a trip at the Coba and overall it was good. Positives are the food selection, cleanliness of grounds, and size of the resort. Sometimes going to a big place is a good thing. It really is big though, it takes a long time to get around depending where your room is. I think it's better to...

Great place to go as they have three resorts combined. So much to see and easy to get around on the little busses. Beautiful beach a short walk but well worth it. They have a small boardwalk and dock where fish swim all around while you cool off.
