Went for a week and really loved the whole complex,it’s big but lots of restaurants to try. You have to book but that’s fine. Loved the beach,no seaweed when we were there. Staff were lovely. Down side was transfer,about 2hours.a long time but worth it,can’t wait to return when things are a bit more normal.
If you are not an American middle class don't go there. Everything is ok but that's all. It's a big complex with a lot of room for different size of wallet. I don't understand why people go there, it's useless. Nothing is interesting. The only good point is the alcohol and the food which are free and in quantity (not quality). Even the tennis court or the football pitch are ok but not nice. Everything is average, really nothing more.
If you have a choice, don't go there.
Last point, you American guys who eat and drink as it's your last day on earth please calm down, life is not a food competition.
We have been to Bahia Principe resorts a number of times now and have stayed at Coba more than once. The room was clean and sparkly on arrival and it was cleaned daily. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The food in the restaurants and buffet was delicious. They have the cutest little animals called coatis. We are already planning trip 15! Thank you LBP Akumal for another wonderful week!!
