My family and I just returned from a week vacation to Mexico, Aug 28, 2008. We had planned staying the full week at the Grand Coco Bay on the Mayan Riviera, Playa del Carmen, but decided to make the best of a bad situation and took 2 days away as we visited surrounding Mayan archeological sites. I agree with several...

We stayed at the GCB from July 11 - 18 and really had a great time. There were 5 of us ranging in age from 8 - 68 years. The location / proximity to the town of Playa del Carmen is a huge plus. Although we stayed on the AI plan, we did venture to the town on several nights...

Let me start by saying that I've traveled to 13 countries, lived abroad for more than 5 years in Germany, Cozumel, and Cabo San Lucas and currently reside in California. I've seen all types of hotels, and this was exactly what I was expecting. A great value for the money. My husband and I have two kids, one 12 and...

The hotel service in general was a disappointment. The food was horrible. To top it all I made 2 phone calls to Florida for a 1 minute duration and 2 minute duration only to come back to the States to find out that I was charged $41.91 for a 1 minute call and $41.94 for a 3 minute call.

We stayed at the Grand Coco Bay for a grand total of one night the last week in July. I was traveling with my Husband and two small children 7yrs & 8yrs old.

My wife and I just returned from a 7 night stay at the Grand Coco Bay Resort in Playa Del Carmen. This was our first time visiting Mexico, will returned but not to a 3 star hotel.

We stayed at the Grand Coco Bay (GCB) from June 29 to July 6, 2008. It was not the place that I thought it would be. If I had been in Florida and had a rental car I would have cancelled my reservation and drove down the road and found a nicer place, and there are nicer places. If I...

We stayed here July 19th- 26th with our 6 yr old daughter. It was our 19th trip to the Playa del Carmen area. Our second stay at Grand Coco Bay.

Oh gosh where to start!! First thing we went in July as we always do for vacation, and I did some research on different resorts in Playa because we had never been there.
