We stayed in Coba. Beautiful pools and beautiful beach. Resort grounds are immaculate. Food was good. Preferred Tulum buffet and Tulum pool. Tequila and La Gran Toruga were our favorite ala cartes. Check in was awful. Waited in a humid hot lobby (no air or ceiling fans were on). We arrived at 2pm and didnt get a room until 4:30....

One week is just not enough. We just returned from our weekly family vacation at GBP Coba. It was the most perfect week.

Beautiful resort. Terrible service at Premiere Lobby Bar, only 1 bartender in the evening. The bartender during the day is fabulous. Front desk attendants at Premiere Lobby were very rude and impatient. Nadia was very nice, but overly inquisitive every day asking if everything was ok. I had a fabulous time, but can see the service slipping from our last...

We're staying here at the Gran Bahia Principe Coba right now - it's fantastic. Our villa 27 is located overlooking a pretty quiet pool and is on the ground floor so easy to throw the kids bits and pieces onto the balcony from the pool. Even though the maps lead you to take some pretty crazy routes to get from...
