It’s rare to be smiling when you exclaim, “What a Jerk”.

It happens all the time at Grand Bahia Principe Coba and I’ll get to that but first I want to brag about the resort.

Let’s start with spacious rooms, elegant canopy beds, pull out sofas, lavish in-suite coffee bar, jetted tubs and separate showers.

Can you picture morning coffee and after dark nightcaps on your balcony?

There are endless distractions for kids and adults. Think kids water park, kid shows, kids games and even face painting.

For the young adults and young at heart there is plenty of action and fun.

Picture pool parties, drinking contests, tequila volleyball and lots of nightlife.

The shows are the theater are impressive. There are acrobats, circus stunts and other live entertainment that will make you quickly forget every Elvis impersonator you’ve ever seen.

They know what travelers like at the disco. The music was a great mix of old favorites and new tunes. Everyone was dancing like crazy at Grand Bahia Principe Coba.

The karaoke is some of the best fun ever.   Several of the singers were fantastic. Some put a spin on the songs that earned applause and laughter.

Here’s a light-hearted warning.
The Coco-Banana drink has so much fresh banana in it, you don’t really feel like you’re drinking. Seriously, you can barely detect the rum. (you will later)
There are plenty of dining choices. Choose international cuisine at the Kukulcan buffet or make reservations for Mediterranean, Italian or even Japanese entrees at the other restaurants.

Always make time for the Jerk Shack.

It’s the most popular place at lunchtime and is located inside the Piscis Snack Bar. There are long lines because it’s only open 3 hours a day. The chicken is tasty and moist while the pork is tender and cooked with some fat.

We went shopping the same day we did the Cenote Maya Tour, tried the exciting zip lines and explored Mayan caves. We went back the next day to shop more.

There is tons and tons of shopping in the area where the merchants will always make a deal. If you enjoy haggling then you will have the time of your life.

Plus you’ll take home some terrific gifts.

At the end of a busy day its fun to relax on the balcony while the kids check out one of the blockbuster movies available in-suite.

Guests love returning to their room to find it cleaned, a new stock of fresh towels and chocolates on the pillows at Grand Bahia Principe Coba.

I’ll be waiting to share a smile at the Jerk Shack.
