About US>>> Dual Income No Kids.... We do a one week all inclusive, 4-5 star winter vacation every year. We don't believe in HAVING to tip in order to get good service (i.e Dominican) but we will tip when we do. We are both easy going, low expectation vacationer's.... Others should think about this too.. :) This resort was over...

This was our second trip to this resort. Both times we've stayed at the smaller, more quiet Premier. When we arrived, we were promptly checked in but when we got to our room, it smelled a little musty and the pillowcases smelled slightly musty as well. A word to housekeeping and the next day the room was aired and scrubbed,...

This resort is a beautiful 3 hotel resort with interchangeable amenities. The food at the buffets and ala cart restaurants is great and fantastic service in hotel services and restaurants. Plenty of pools, beach areas, and entertainment. The management (FELIX) was more than accommadating and a real asset to this resort, he could be found from sun up to sundown....

Not sure why there are negative reviews about the Coba. We have travelled as a group for the past 7 years and our group has numbered from 8 to 14. We have always considered ourselves fairly easy going but at the same time we have expectations to receive what we pay for. We usually book at 5 star resorts and...

Well what can I say, 9 of us ( including small children) went on a family holiday for 2 weeks and stayed at the Coba. Amazing from walking into the reception at the start, to the gormet restaurants, to the beach, the more we saw the better it got. I would not hesitate to go back and it is worth...

Just returned on 3/5/11. While we had some minor disappointments, Coba continues to be our favorite Mayan destination. Beaches, buffets, a la cartes and rooms were top notch, as usual. Here's a few areas that have room for improvement: 1) Roaches. We had one on our 3rd floor landing. Our friends had one in their room, which they smashed with...
