Coba vs Akumal vs Tulum?

For those of you who are familiar with Gran Bahia resorts tell me the major differences between the three? I realize they are all attached and have been to several AIs. Thanks in advance for any thing you can share. Christy

Tulum and Akumal are basically the same with some small differences and are both on the beach. Coba is all suites and is not on the beach. Each resort was built a different time with Coba being the newest and Akumal being in the middle (time wise).

How far away are they from the Tulum ruins and can you eat and drink at all three?

How do these resorts compare to Palladium?

Thanks a bunch

You are about 20 mins away from the Tulum ruins and you stay at one and play at three.

I personally think it is the best resort on the Mayan Riviera. IMHO

Christyv,

There is more bacon at the Coba buffet than the other two.

Dimitroff,

Get to the buffet early. A lot of the riff-raff from the Akumal and Tulum sides try to sneak in and eat OUR bacon!
