We visited the GBP Coba during the third week of March 2012. We were very impressed with the resort. It is by far the cleanest All Inclusive I have been too. There are countless workers around the resort cleaning, sweeping, painting, etc. I thought I may be a little disappointed going to the Coba. I had been to Atlantis in...

We arrived home last night after 7 days at Gran Bahia Coba. We enjoyed every moment of our stay, from the delicious food (both buffet and a la carte) to the shows and awesome beach.

We stayed at the GBP Coba from Feb 22-March 1st 2013. It seemed to be a very busy time in the hotel, as well as the other sections of the resort. You could not really tell they were at full capacity as the resort is so well spaced out, and the staff is very effecient. This was my second stay...

Although we got off to a bit of a rocky start, we really enjoyed this resort as the first tropical family holiday we have taken. First, we were to have an early check in due to the fact that we had been flying overnight and had two kids in tow (ages 5 and 7). The room was not ready but...
