Just returned from a week at Grand Bahia Principe Coba. We always use TripAdvisor when deciding where to go so I decided to add my review. It's a really nice resort and is deserving of all the positive reviews given thus far. It's a really large resort (Coba, Tulum and Akumal) but is immaculate; superbly maintained and clean.

Wonderful hotel, very clean. Staff is super friendly, rooms are big. This resort is huge, but transportation between the parts of the resorts is very convenient. The only minus for us was that beach was to shallow, but there is plenty of beach umbrellas.
