Smaller than the other two, only open for breakfast and lunch. But everything there seemed a bit better from the stronger coffee to a more...

I had a fantastic time!! If you go to the royal Golden you have Ivan as your bartender and he is absolutely fantastic! Friendly, funny and makes the best mango mojito! Everything was great about this trip.

We came here a decade ago and when our kids were little, and it was factory AI but done quite nicely. Service is terrible now. Couple of examples.

I love this resort. When they say you are family, that is truly how you are treated. I became seriously ill at the resort. The Manager, RODRIGO ESCÁRCEGA, himself came to help transport me to the Doctor. He then had us moved from our room on the third floor to the main floor. The resort Doctor, Paramedics and Hospital staff...

The best thing is you can take the free trolley to visit all 3 Grand Bahia Principe resorts. You will be able to eat and swim at GBP Coba and GBP Tulum but not Akumal. Tulum is close to beach. If you stay at Coba, you can take the trolley to beach. It only takes 5 minutes. We sometimes walk...
