flown in way too early and lied to
JEFFREY B.
May 09 2018
1st flew in on a 6am flight to arrive at 9am after a hour and 45 min. bus ride (not 45 mins like stated) arrived at resort at 1130 front desk tells you no check in till 3pm and buffets are closed till 1230 you can go walk down beach to a snack shop in long pants and tennis shoes. Amstar rep VERY rude and made comments about in in spanish not thinking my wife could understand it. room had small black bugs coming out of the sink drain you have to put the rubber stop in the drain to stop them dont leave personal stuff on bathroom sink bugs will get on the items. Someone threw up shrimp in the pool and the vomit was floating for approx 15 min before it was just strained out with a pool net. they didnt even throw in chlorine. the beach was HORRIBLE seaweed up to your waist and stcked on the beach which gets hauled off with a small bulldozer machine. OHH and there was no private party at arrival with champagne flowing 100% lie. I had to find out about the private apple party on Friday after we walked past one in the other resort. I was told ours was on Wednesday night when we arrived. I was never told about it. But everyone call you "My Friend" so i guess you get that deep down love feeling. sorry not this guy I will not be traveling with Apple going forward. I'll just stick to cruises.....

First Time in Mexico
JOHN M.
May 08 2018
OUr hotel was really attractive, however, the lobby was inconstruction making it inconvenient to have to travel around and through the lobby bar to get places. Our room had a very difficult time cooling down, the staff did attempt to make our stay comfortable, it remained warm. Along with the temperature issue our room had a very distinctive off aroma. We actually brough the smell home with us in all of our clothing. The staff were out of this world wonderful, they work hard and are proud of what they do. I had an accident on our last day of vacation, I slipped on the pool deck and ended up breaking my orbital socket. The staff responded quickly and stayed with my husband and myself during my trip to the clinic. They were willing todrive me to the hospital and stay with me while they took xrays. I declined as I was going home the next day anyway. I enjoyed my first visit to Mexico and certainly would come back to this resort.

Hotel rooms need fans in the bathrooms and better cleaning is a must. Floors weren't swept and bathrooms weren't cleaned very good. More than 1 bartender in pool bar as the hotel was full. Entertainment team was awesome. Shows in the evening needed more variety and better options. Probably the worst I have seen in my 10 plus years going to mexico.

Fantastic, but not perfect.

This resort was even nicer than the 5 apple rating would lead you to believe. We were totally wowed by the resort grounds, pool, and overall amenities. And the staff was ALWAYS happy, friendly, and wanting to pamper us. We would definitely recommend it and stay here again! There were only 3 things we wished were better: (1) wifi was only free in the lobby area and wasn't always functioning. (2) The beach was just ok - it was quite rocky in some places and not really a spot to snorkel. (3) The pizza almost always sucked. But overall this was by far the nicest resort we've ever stayed at - and we'd definitely stay here again!

Food in the buffet was very good and in all the other restaurants better than in any of the other resorts we have been to in Mexico or the Dominican Republic. We called for a minor repair, and someone was thereto fix it within 5 minutes.

We stayed at the Coba 3 years in a row and this was the first time in Tulum. We had issues with the transfer bus waiting approximately one hour for people to arrive which delayed the time we got to our hotel. Overall we had a wonderful stay however, the service in the bars with the wait staff was horrible. We basically were ignored. We had an issue with our air conditioning in our room and my husband had to complain 3 times that we finally gave up and towards the end of our stay we received a call from the front desk to see if it was working which is unacceptable when you are paying for a vacation and expect the service to be what it should be.

Overall a very good second experience at the hotel. The buffet was disappointing and my least favourite part of the holiday. Repetitive food and lack of tables to sit at. Walking round trying to find some where to sit and eat. Al a carts are fantastic especially Don pabalo. We had an amazing anniversary meal there. Two members of staff that really stood out to are Ursula from the lobby bar and Jacqueline from the Bahia kids club. Thank you for a great stay

Amazing second stay

I have recently come back from my 2nd stay at the GBP Tulum and what can I say. The place is awesome. Staff are so pleasant and helpful. We did have a couple days if rain which we couldn’t have prepared for but that didn’t mean we couldn’t do anything. The World Cup was on at the time so we spent a lot of the time at the Hacienda Bar watching that under cover :) and they showed the England Games on a big screen at the Coba hotel. The beaches are amazing and the food is awesome. Will definitely be returning in the near future for my 3rd stay.

Superb hotel glorious surroundings

On holiday at this lovely hotel , it has fantastic setting beautiful gardens, spotlessly clean and very friendly staff. Spoilt for choice in the buffet restaurant , not the best beach but the weather makes up for it would come back again .

Everything was a bit off

Not sure if it is a management issue, but for an all inclusive the food was a bit too repetitive (last night's fish is todays lunch), and ALL mixed cocktails had a "sweetener" added to them. Seriously we watched the waiters to figure it out. You will see them pour the same "something" in a mojito, margarita, sea breeze, daquiri, pina colada, etc. And you can taste the extra sweet in your drink. The only time we got a drink that tasted "normal" and they did not add what we called the "drink extender" was a gin and tonic or vodka and tonic. Our first room (superior room) had plumbing issues so they moved us to another room. Our new room's shower glass wall did not structurally stop water so the floor would get soaked every time you used the shower. Getting reservations at some of the restaurants was ridiculous. We would of needed to make the reservations BEFORE we even arrived to get into the best ones at decent times. And EVERYONE saves a lounge chair by breakfast time so good luck with that too. Pricing is very competitive here but not worth it if you are just a couple. Families yes, couples no. Pay a bit more and find a different hotel.

Solid Family Resort in Riviera Maya

Use of two very large resorts with golf buggies at regular intervals to collect and ferry between both Tulum and Coba resorts. Several swimming pools all of a good standard with serveral bars (all inclusive) with very friendly staff to serve you. Solid food with large volume and different themed nights to ensure never bored of same thing every night. In my opinion A La Carte only advantage is that your food is brought to you and quality not that much different from buffet. Beach is enclosed and better towards the adult only section. Grounds are immaculate but do suffer in places for stagnant water ‘rotten egg’ smell. My room was overlooking Dolphinarium so was not affected by this. Staff super friendly and Riviera Maya had plenty for family to do. Would definitely come back to this area again.
