One of 24 five-star beach resorts operated by Grupo Pinero's Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts, the Grand Bahia Principe Riviera Maya affords adventurers easy access to a number of ancient Mayan pyramids and coastal, walled fortresses. This complex contains three individual resorts named after regional settlements, each of which is geared toward different kinds of travelers. As a result, it's relatively easy to book a business, adults-only, or family vacation in a villa surrounded by lush tropical palms. Simply wandering around this resort in the Mexican heat is a great way to stumble across inviting pools, cool bars and fascinating shops.
Key facts
  • Rooms by complex: Tulum - 858; Coba - 1,080; Akumal - 630
  • 11 international restaurants
  • 18 bars
  • 7 pools, including lazy river and lakes
  • Concierge service available
  • Wi-Fi (fees may apply)
Neighborhood
In the surrounding area, guests will discover hidden cenotes, water-filled caves that invite serious scuba divers and casual snorkelers alike, and parks like Xcaret, that give you a chance to enjoy the clear currents of a calm lagoon in a more naturalistic setting than found at any waterpark. Nearby Chichen Itza is a World Heritage Site, which includes The Castle, the Pyramid of Kukulcan and Juego de Pelota. The Sacred Cenote is a spot where the Mayans apparently made human sacrifices, and should not be missed by lovers of history, macabre and otherwise.
Hints and tips
Enjoy a quieter stay in this large complex by staying in a room further away from the central areas, or on the side of a villa opposite the nearest pool.

If you find yourself tired or lost from walking around after a long day, locate one of the many shuttle stops scattered throughout the resort, and wait for about five minutes to get a free ride.

Just OK

The hotel is overall good, however when something out of the ordinary occures they follow very long processes and that takes hours and do not inform properly. More variety at the buffet will be great.

father and daughter weekend

The stay was great. We were just there in April so we knew what to expect. We had an issue getting paid in the casino but we got it taken care of in the end.

girls getaway

We chose grand bahia principe coba because the price was great for all inclusive and it was far from the party atmosphere in cancun- all confirmed upon arrival. The resort was giant and well maintained but it took a while to get around and seemed like leaving the resort was such process. Other than that and the fact that our ac didnt work and the bed was extremely firm, this was a great resort. The food was great and available at all times. There was plenty to do at the resort and great information for tours if you wanted to explore the area. I would recommend staying here for more than a week as it does that a long time to get around. I also recommend visitng Tulum and the nearby beaches especially playa paradiso- this place was unbelievably beautiful. Also visit the nearby beach and cenote- playa x'cacel and x'cacelito- gorgeous!

a little taste of heaven

Had a fantastic time at bahia principe, even better than last time. Awesome staff all round, everyone works extremely hard to make your stay perfect. Only disappointment the privileged guest staff who refused me a tour because my husband was not traveling with me. .it was quite a rude altercation but couldn't taint the overall great experience I had and the perfect wedding I attended.

Beach now full of algae

Food still very good at this hotel and this is why we keep on coming here. With that said the amount of algae that proliferate on the beach is absolutely crazy. If you're going there for the beach you may want to consider another destination.

Economical Vacation

A great first stay at Coba as a couple. The majority of the staff were friendly and attentive and the complex is set up for rest and relaxation. The hotel itself is a great value, but you need to know that you paying for a 3 star rather than a 5 star experience. A couple of things to keep in mind... Non-Buffet Meals: While we were told we would be eligible for three non-buffet dinners as part of our reservation. We were told to make the reservations for these meals at check-in. When we checked in the receptionist noted we were only eligible for one and we would be lucky to get two but that reservations could only be made at the concierge (who had limited hours). While we ended up with two reservations, both were very late (9:00 and 10:00 pm), and required a separate trip to the lobby. Check-In: When we requested a third floor room we were told the hotel was extremely full and that we were being given a premier room on the ground floor. We we arrived at the room it was extremely dark, smelled awful and musty, and faced a gully. Given that we were in Mexico for sun, we called the front desk and asked to be moved. After being placed on hold for a long time we were told the best they could do was another room with two double beds on the second floor. We decided to go back to the lobby to discuss our options and only when we physically walked to the front desk did a room with our desired qualifications materialize (top floor, king size bed). It was frustrating to have to go through so much trouble just to get a nice room (we had paid the extra money for the golden amenities) that could have been provided to us at the outset. It just felt like we were hustled/not being dealt with honestly which was not a great way to start the stay. Overall: After our less than stellar check in experience and negative interactions with the reception staff in the premier lobby, the hotel was enjoyable, and lived up to the positive reviews. It is a good value, but it is all inclusive, which we quickly learned means that the food is hit or miss, the drinks watered down, and the rooms a bit spartan. That being said for what we paid it was a great deal, the staff (with the exception of the premier reception who were less than friendly or forthcoming) were amazing, and the setting is absolutely beautiful.
