I recently visited this resort with my wife and 2 small boys (6 and 7) and thought I would provide an honest review that could benefit others.

We love this resort. There are three resorts on the property. We've stayed three times in Coba and three times in Tulum. They both have their good and bad points. Overall they are both great. The sand on the beach at Tulum and Akumal is 'pink sand' made from coral that's been crushed over the millions of years. It isn't...

Food was terrible! The service was bad! The location is far from good and be very careful they will switch your rooms on you from what your itinerary says by saying everything is full and if you want to eat at a so called nice restaurant you better do it online. The pools were slimmy from not being cleaned properly....

We just returned two days ago from Gran Bahia Principe Coba and I think I understand why many people love it and some don't like it at all. So here's my take on it as a foodie, someone who loves walking and doesn't care so much about a room they spend no time in on holiday. The things to love...
