In general, this was a good experience. Lets start from the begining, we stayed there from 22th june to 29th june. From the airport to the hotel, it's about an hour or 2 depending how you do it. Since we knew it could take up to 2 hours, we rent our own shuttle (140$ round trip). Then, when we arrive...

My boyfriend and I went to the Grand Baha Principe Resort in Mexico. It's about an hour away from the Cancun airport (they pick you up from the airport at no additional charge). Baha Principe has different site locations that you can choose when booking your trip. We stayed at Coba which is about a 10 minute walk from the...

Resort is 1 hr 20 min drive from airport. We took a private shuttle to resort RT was $140. As we arrived, we were told to check in at a different lobby which was kind of weird.

It was my first time at an all-inclusive resort. I did not leave disappointed. The Grand Bahia Principe Coba was SUPER family oriented. The resort included a large water park full of slides (big and small, fast and slow), a nightly 8pm show for kids (Mini-Disco) and a Kid Buffet table. The staff was ever polite and pleasant and warm....

The best part about this place was the friendly staff. The buffet food and service was lacking and the room location inconvenient for walking to the beach. Waterpark was great for the kids - you need to get there early in the morning to get a lounge chair though. A la cartes were pretty good, but they are stingy with...
