I went to Gran Bahia Principe Coba with five relatives at the end of March 2013 (ten-day stay) and I would go back without hesitation. All in all, I was very impressed by the Coba and the other two resorts I visited (Tulum and Akumal). Everything was clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly, attentive, patient, resourceful... we could...

In one word - fantastic resort. ROOM: My sister and I stayed in Villa 28. It was very clean and comfortable. Only complaint - no kettle, only a cafetiere which is not really suitable for making tea with water at actual boiling (not just hot) temperature which gives the best flavour. English Breakfast Tea sachets were not replaced after we...

This was not my first resort experience, but it was my first time at the Grand Bahia Principe and I cannot say enough good things about it. To be clear: this is a 5-star resort, but like most 5-star beach resorts, you need to adjust your expectations slightly -- it's not going to be like staying at the Waldorf. But...
