Basically it comes down to luck and trusting reviews, and with that, my fiance and I had decided to have our wedding at Bahia Principe Coba.

Absolutely brilliant we will go again. The local animal life was fascinating. As there are three hotels make sure you try for akumal or tulum as coba is a long way from the beach and we prefer the sea and the beach. Food and drink were excellent and service was above expectations.

Lovelly hotel, great food, beautiful swiming pools. We stayed by the Coba and went to the beach by the Akumal area. We found that Coba, even though a little bit farther from the beach, was a tiny bit nicer that the Akumal or the Tullum.We would definitelly come back. It was a pleasure to return to Bahia Principe.
