great resort , clean room good food and entertainment but .I keep a reef aquarium and we try to propagate or only buy propagated corals so not to harvest the reefs. I was dismayed when they used the coral reef as walls. Then we went back to Grand Bahia in Punta Cana the beautiful reef we snorkeled in at the...

This was my second trip to Grand Bahia Principe Coba. We went 5 years ago with some friends, and although it's still good, there were some changes I did not overly appreciate. BEACHES- I was severely disappointed that they have changed the policy in regards to staying at one resort and using the amenities of the others. I LOVE the...

Let me start with the only issue -- this resort is 1 1/2 hours from the airport. I was unaware when booking but after our stay it was well worth that distance. We were in a Junior suite in Villa 29 on the first floor. There was no problem with noise. The beds were a tad hard but was still...

First off they charge $85 USD for wifi up to 4 person for 7 days and $5 USD per day for a manual lock for safety deposit box. All bar is close at 11pm and they shut all the lounge lights at 11pm and take away your lounge chair seats cushion from you. Also I rate the beach area 0...

An excellent hotel, with a very good service, very clean, very nice and helpful staff. It is not directly on the beach but there is a regular transport to the beach, virtually every 5 minutes and it takes 5 minutes. The maximum we have waited was 10 minutes. The beach that corresponds to the Coba is that of GB Tulum...

I cannot even wait for my vacation to end before I write this review. We were eagerly looking forward to this vacation as a quick family getaway. We are lovers of the Grand Bahia hotel brand, I mean I have nothing but amazing things to say about Dominican Republic and Jamaica, and have come to expect a standard of service...

My husband and I recently spent an incredible 2 weeks at the Grand Bahia Principe Coba. The buffet food every day was delicious. You get 3 al a carte restaurants each week. The Brazilian BBQ was fantastic and the Japanese was our favourite - your meal is cooked in front of you complete with knife tricks! The staff were friendly...

This is a late review since I went here between 2nd March - 16th March 2017... Decided to write this (as I barely ever make reviews) because I actually had an awesome time! I went with my daughter and mother. Rooms were cleaned daily and everything was in working condition...even the hot tub that comes as standard! Days were spent...

We just returned from the Grand Bahia Principe Coba on Saturday for a one week stay. This was our 4th time and it's still as great as the first time.
