The Bahia Principe Coba resort was recommended to me by a dear friend and I would recommend to everybody. Best place I have ever stayed at clean, clean, clean. The only problem we had and it really wasn’t a problem was the AC not working properly in one of the rooms but the staff quickly fixed that problem. The rooms...

Very Nice, very large resort. Very beautiful grounds once you get the lay of the land as this resort allows you to move freely between three resorts ( Tulum, Akumel, and Coba ) with numerous above average dining options and bars from quiet to quite busy. Buffet food at all buffets we found to be above average with great selections....

As this was our 5th time back to the Coba resort, we were treated like royalty. Would very much recommend the Grand Bahia Principe Coba. We started our days at the Tulum pool, under the palapas, and after enough sun, would find ourselves at the Iquana Jacuzzi pool, where Paulino would take very good care of us. We love Paulino!!!...
