    I stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Coba in September 2019. From start to finish it was truly Devine. Our room was so clean and had just the right facilities. A fridge which you got free drinks ( Coca Cola, Fanta and Beer) that were restocked every day. The room also had tea and coffee and a flask and bottled water. The all inclusive Buffett was lovely. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. A few bits that were not the best, but can’t fault it. The restaurants on the resort were amazing aswell (le gourmet) was our favourite. The hotel pools were fantastic! A pool bar was on our resort, as many drinks as you want! Water park for children. The pool area was nice and lively but not too loud. We booked amazing excursions through the hotel at a very good price, far better the tui prices which are in the hotel. Over all just a truly amazing time spent here the beaches are beautiful and it’s an amazing atmosphere. Finally, saving the best until last. The staff. It was my first visit to Mexico and I didn’t know what to expect. I’ve never met nicer people. Every single person who worked there went above and beyond to help. They checked up on you, the drivers who drove the golf buggies around the resort were so friendly. Honestly, the staff & people of Mexico made our holiday. Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. The staff truly deserve the best. Thankyou for having us. We will deffinetly be back.

    It was the first time I went to the Caribe and my expectations were really high. Once I got to the hotel all my expectations were exceeded. The staff is amazingly friendly, always with a smile and able to help, the food was awesome, the communal areas are big and spacious, the animal life brings another amazing natural environment, the food and drinks service is very good as well!! The room was huge, beds are comfortable, everything was clean and tidy, the safe works perfectly and the air con and the fan were true friends.. in the last days we had a bit of sargassum on the water but it was amazing the work performed by the staff, with nets, shovels and trucks to clean the beach!! I feel that every single person of the staff gave their best to satisfy ourselves and their sympathy made all the difference in our holidays. The next time I’ll be in Riviera Maya this hotel is definitely going to be my choice! 5* thank you

    It’s a beautiful resort clean, wonderful staff, good food. My concern is safety on marble wet stairs I would suggest a anti skid tape so many are falling down the stairs when they are wet. Another suggestion is shade in the court yard not enough and with our Canadian fair skin we kind of burn easy. The rest is great place to stay.

    Disappointed! Snakes everywhere...so gross!!

    SNAKES EVERYWHERE!! Hotel was ok but what ruined it were the snakes all around the resort. Saw them during the day by the family pool and at night walking to the restaurants. They weren't gardener snakes either, more like python size ones. My kids enjoyed the water park which was the only entertaining thing for the kids to do. Nightly entertainment was not geared to kids unlike other Gran Bahia resorts we've been to. Don't waste your time going to the timeshare meeting...not worth the time. Food and service were ok but nothing to rave about. Beaches were far so you had to take a trolley and the Coba beach was full of seaweed so we ended up going to the beach at Akumal resort but you weren't allowed to get drinks or food from there. I definitely would not recommend this hotel for families and people that have a phobia to snakes.

    We booked our stay at this hotel for 10 nights at last minute with 1 day before departure due to our dream holiday that we had looked forward to all year had been cancelled to Orlando because of hurricane Dorian. I am SO glad we came here. The hotel was brilliant I don’t know where to start. The rooms are big and spacious, the comfiest huge bed! A small living area, balcony and lovely spacious bathroom. The mini fridge was stocked daily. The room was cleaned daily always before we came back at 3pm ish and fresh towels. Our toilet broke the first day and we luckily caught the maintenance man straight outside who fixed it straight away for us. The pool is big and always enough sun beds. Great activities happening in the pool and around the hotel all day. My partner loved the group volleyball matches. The sun beds are comfy. Drinks available all day from 10:30 and the lovely snack bar or restaurants for some lunch. The food was the best out of any all inclusive resort I have been to - I have stayed in many places and if you think this is bad then you need to get elsewhere! If you are expecting a fine dining restaurant quality for each meal then DO NOT come to an all inclusive resort, spend more money and eat out every night. The hotel does a great job at catering for all different nationalities and quantities of people. I never had the same thing twice and the food was always good. The waiting staff are great and bringing drinks and checking on you. Every single member of staff we dealt with were friendly and happy to help, so welcoming!! The bell boys are so funny and nice and always help you with your luggage or dropping you off in the buggies at various locations. This is a eco hotel and there are many wild animals roaming the place which I loved! Would recommend this hotel to anyone, we would love to come back in a heart beat. Thanks for a great holiday!! Would recommend excursions xel ha, coba Maya traditions when you stay here.
