Con:...

March break 2017. Beautiful properties, very large with three complexes. We stayed at the Coba, which is the only one not on the beach. The food was good at the mainstay Buffett, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We only tried two of the specialty restaurants. The Italian was good, the seafood restaurant was exceptional. A very nice touch was...

The Coba is a perfectly fine resort but depending on your style of vacation may not be what you are looking for, and there are better choices along the Mayan Riviera. First off it is a long haul from Cancun airport, well over an hour. Not a huge deal, but if you've had long flight with kids, get delayed at...
