Reviewed 10 April 2014

We were central to a lot of main attractions. Got to visit Playa Del Carmen, swam with the turtles in Akumal, visited the Mayan Ruins in Tulum, and went to Xel Ha. All in one week! The resort was huge, too much to see in just a short stay though. That's probably why many return there again and again.

Second year in a row at Grand Bahia Principe Coba with two other families, ages 7-17. Had a great time hanging out each day at the beach, snorkeling, playing in the pool, and visiting Akumal and the Lagoon nearby. Stayed closer to the Premier lobby this time which made it easier to spend each day at the beach and then...

We have always stayed at the Bahia Principe's all over the Dominican Republic. This was our first stay in Mexico and the Bahia Principe Coba did not disappoint. With excellent service, excellent food, immaculate grounds and beautiful beach, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay from March 15th to the 29th.

I stayed at the Coba from March 30th to April 6th with family and friends for a wedding. The buffet was very good, lots to choose from (comparing to past all-inclusive experiences). The rooms are large, clean and the AC worked just fine. Beds are hard but I slept just fine. The staff was friendly and gave good service all...
