Very nice hotel but beware of changes.Posted Dec 17, 2014
Pros: The staff work hard for the customers.
Cons: No saving beach and pool chairs, and especially for hours, reliable and consistant trolley transport with clearly indicated routes.
Location: With tour operators, close proximity to cabs and public transport, one can be doing anything the Mayan Riveria can offer within an hour or so.
Our first week was without transport to the beach (15 min. walk) We were glad to have the trolleys running again, after many complaints from guests and staff. Unfortunately they have reduced access to sister hotel Bahia Principe Akumal, which has the best beach area with a convenient snack bar. (time share sales of Akumal are HIGH PRIORITY) Beautiful hotel, great price, good food, great staff, replenishing of room items etc, hit and miss. The long distance to the beach can be a pain. Both beach and pool chairs are "saved" by 7:00 AM so unless you get up early........you'll need alternate plans. 10-15% of the chairs are never visited or used till mid day, which is an annoyance. Would we go back for the aggravation? Undecided..............

EXCELLENT SEJOURPosted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: Personnel charmant. à tous les niveaux. Très bonne nourriture, avec de bons restaurants à thème. Chambre très spacieuse.
Location: Bien situé à 100 km de CANCUN. Visite de TULUM et PLAYA DEL CARMEN assez proches (collectivo) Excursion à EK BALAM et le cenote
Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour de 2 semaines au BAHIA PRINCIPE COBA. L'hôtel n'est pas directement près de la plage, mais l'accès y est très facile avec les navettes du complexe. Excellent aménagement de l'ensemble. Très belles plages. Bonnes possibilités d'excursions. Ne pas hésiter à utiliser le "Collectivo" à la sortie de l'hôtel pour se rendre à TULUM et PLAYA DEL CARMEN.

Loved It!!!!!Posted Dec 2, 2014
Pros: The cleanliness, restaurants and EMPLOYEES!!!
Cons: The beach (however it is not the hotels fault). They do everything they can to make it nice.
We travel to Riviera Maya a couple times a year and have stayed at a variety of hotels. This trip was wonderful! The property is very well kept. Liked it more than the Tulum side which costs more. Rooms were very large and had wonderful air conditioning. The a la carte restaurants had wonderful service and great food. The only fault I could find was the quality of their beach. They work very hard to remove the seaweed but there are large sections full off it where you just cannot swim. It is also rocky in some sections. Their employees more than make up for the beach!!!!! Some of the nicest and hardest working people I have ever met. Overall, it is a great resort and would love to return!!!

we have previously been to gran baha principa 3 xsPosted Nov 22, 2014
Pros: Specialty restaurants were very enjoyable.
Cons: Food and beach were the greatest disappointments. Compared to my last visit in 2010 the experience was declined severely. This disappointed as honeymo
Location: purchased excursions and was very disappointed that the guide did not speak English.
this was so extremely disappointing - our honeymoon and the food was less than satisfactory. generally the buffets tables were picked over and same everyday. Beach that was great in the past is now reserved for exclusive guests. We paid a premium price for this vacation and were treated like second class citizens. Went on a tour and the tour guide only spoke Spanish. Room cleanliness was disappointing as you never knew when the cleaning staff would arrive.

Cold (broken air conditioning) and humid ground floor room. It took 2 days of complaining and sleeping in the sweater to had it changed. Buffet is mediocre, especially low quality of meats (dry, chewy). Very nice service and grounds staff.
