We just spent a week at the Coba with our daughter and son in law and our two grandkids. Ages 4 & 7 months. The Grand Bahia Coba was the best place to be with kids. The Bahia scout program was great and the water park was perfect for the little ones. Good evening entertainment and kid friendly. Meals at...

We stayed a week at Coba after getting a cheap deal with first choice. We had a incredibly long wait through customs when we arrived in Mexico around 2hours. It was then an 1 and half hours trip to the hotel. We had a fantastic week couldn't fault the resort at all. Clean spacious rooms with a mini bar which...

Big resort, with lots of services and plenty of room at the pools, which were designed to keep the little ones at the water playground away from the big ones at the swim-up pool bars. Room was large and clean, and fridge was stocked daily. Buffet had something for everyone, and the food was standard fare. We took advantage of...

Privilege Club Issues: - Only a moderately higher level of service; - The check-in was done by a person who barely knew the resort; - Slow response and long waits for privilege club golf carts. In some cases, the cart doesn't even show up. - Privileged beach is very busy and difficult to get a good spot. - Slow drink...

We stayed at the COBA from Nov 27 – Dec 04. This was my 10th visit to the Grand Bahia Principe. It appears the upper management personnel has changed and implemented a few new policies. Previously, management acknowledge and showed their appreciation for repeat guest by giving them a bottle of champagne and a fruit basket in the room upon...

Coba is a huge resort which is well maintained. I was extremely blown away by the buffet the options were amazing and everything tastes delicious. My bf and I have many food allergies but we were able to find many things to eat at every meal. Our room was very clean and bug free no complaints. We had a blast...

My husband an I were married here in November, and had the most incredible stay. Luciana and the whole wedding team were amazing and went above and beyond to make our day a magical experience for us! The resort itself is immaculately clean and beautiful, and the atmosphere is wonderful. The resort staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We were...

Absolutely loved it here. Room large with great air con. Spotlessly clean everywhere. All the drinks were amazing (rare for other AI places I've been). Loved drinking in the bar by the premier lounge, was always a little quieter. My only bad point is the buffet food was always cold and we went at all different times. Just make sure...
