    Hey everyone, I appreciate all the warm regards, and assistance you have all provided.

    I should say that my fiancee and myself have booked our date and have paper work from the wedding coordinator in terms of picking packages and such. As an FYI, and I'm sure they are all like this, the add-ons are extremely expensive, a mariachie (did i spell that right?) is 750 bucks for 45 minutes, cake seemed a little high too if you had more than a standard package included.

    We are going to forgo paying some extra cash and take advantage of the fact we are at an AI resort and do tequila shots instead

    I have seen some photos from the resort, surprisingly my fiancee's cousin came back a couple days before we booked, unfortunately I don't have the photos personally, but i should say the resort looked beautiful.

    Please feel free to respond and ask anything, I can try my best to find an answer for you. Oh, one other thing, the price we were quoted, which was around 1400 per person after taxes was for a junior suite, if you wanted to upgrade to one of those suites with the sliding doors that go into the water, that was approx another 600 /couple based on double occupancy. All of the above, as my name mentions, are in Canadian prices :) So we are passing on the upgrade to that particular room lol... we'll take a second trip last minute for that price.

      Welcome to the forum, it's great to have you here, Ron! I am headed to the Grand Sunset Princess at the beginning of December for a week to shoot a wedding and am very excited. I think it looks like a fabulous destination and I have been to a sister resort the Punta Cana Princess which I loved I dont go until December but I will be happy to share pictures with you when I get back!

      And it's great to have more Canadians here

        Hello,
        Was married at the GSP on June 24th. Had a group of 55 people. The wedding was perfect. Damarys (wedding coord.) did a wonderful job. It was difficult to communicate by email but when I arrived, everything was just like I wanted.
        I suggest you get the Caribbean Trio instead of the Mariachis ($350). I hired them for after the ceremony. We danced on the beach. It was perfect and so romantic. They played mexican music.
        We brought our own champagne with plastic wine glasses. Had a table set up on the beach and to my surprise, Damarys served the champagne.
        Any questions, please ask.

          We were also looking at this resort, but have seen some mixed reviews about the food. The price is right for my family though. Can anyone tell me what they thought of the food, particularly as compared with other all inclusives?

                MGP: I'm a travel agent and have travelled all around the world. All I can say is that people have different opinions about the food at GSP. Do not expect 5 star food. We were a group of 55, not one complaint. My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks and we never got tired of the food. If you go to the buffet early enough, food is plenty and warm and good. Some a-la-cartes were very good and some so-so (I did not like the Fondu). I say for the price, go for it, it's worth it.
