Grand Bahia Pricipe Coba is our preferred Mexican destination, this was our fourth visit. Well maintained, resort facilities are wonderful, pools are beautiful and most of all, employees at all levels provide excellent service.

This was our second time to the Grand Bahia/Coba & hopefully not the last. Everything was perfect. Check-in was unbelieveably fast, perhaps because of our Royal Golden status. The rooms are great, the food fabulous, the people super...I cannot say enough about this place. Beaches, pools, shows, buffets, ala carte restaurants. Ready to go again...in a heart beat!

It's hard to find reviews for travelling with small kids (a toddler and a baby), even though there are many young families using this resort. We have a 2.5 year old toddler and 14 month old baby.

It was my first trip to this resort. Myself and other members of my party were well treated with courtesy and a willingness to please. We enjoyed excellent meals at several different restaurants and the choice at the bars was great. My room was clean and well maintained and the bed couldn't be better. I will return!
