This is 3 resorts in one with very frequent shuttles (small trains for ~20 persons) offering unlimited possibilities and access to 4 buffet restaurants, 14 restaurant "à la carte", 24 hours snacks bar, many live music...

Well, overall it's not too bad. The best part of this resort (in my opinion) is nightly shows. They are breathtaking! I'm a dancer too, I've been dancing since 4 years of age. So I always see imperfections on the stage. But I didn't see many of those here! Every single dancer worked real hard, so the performances were flawless....

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The resort is huge! We have never stayed at one so large.

It's obvious that the people rating the Coba on a 4-5 level, are NOT experienced travellers. This hotel is by NO means a 5 star property. Wild raccoons take over the beach grill at night, and don't dare walk with food in your hands, they will attack you. The same old food is repeated everyday, its never hot, the containers...
