Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

One thing that I would find out about is the "Mexican" night that they have at the Hacienda. I see that you're getting married on a Thursday...and if that is the same night that they do the Mexican fiesta night...then I don't think you can rent out the disco. Sorry...but I don't know the price for the disco...but I think it may be somewhere in this thread.

 

I am doing a poolside reception (weather permitting) so you may want to check into something like that?

 

Is it Christian (Karla's assistant) that has gotten back to you from the resort? I just received an email from him yesterday...so now we can start planning :)

Yes I did get an e-mail from Karla's assistant who told me that she will be away until July 27th. So I only have one month with Karla before the Wedding date. Scary! The assistant is not great at english because she actually said June 27 first??

I hope thats enough time.

We have booked the Mediterranean Restaurant for our Dinner and wondering if anyone has any comments on it. We are also considering the Disco for the reception but have no idea of the price or if it will just be for the wedding guests. Please help!
The Mediterranean restaurant is one of my favourites on the property...we have stayed at Bahia Coba five times and have dined there each time. Great pick!!

Hey everyone, we are back... and a review is going to come shortly. We were married at GBP Tulum and it was like a dream, more than we could have expected. Jazmin came throught for EVERYTHING even at the last minute when it looked like it was going to rain. we were so thoroughly satisfied and beyond with the wedding and reception!!

So for half of these pictures at least one of us thought we were flying out the next day!

I thought I'd post them because inspite of all the things that can go wrong a wedding at GBP is amazingly stress free and so worth it! Claudia, the photographer did a great job and Liam, the groom, did a great job of pretending!

Thank you so much for sharing your pictures. They are beautiful!!! I am using Erick from Claudia's team & we booked him for the smallest package which is 3 hrs. Do you think thats enough timehuh.gif How long did you have yours for? We have already paid the deposit but might change the amount of time we have him for. Any advice would help.
Thanks
Tara

Claudia was awesome... she was so friendly we felt like we knew her personally. Erik is her brother, he did our friends engagment photos and was at our reception as well. we did 5 hours... three would probably get you getting ready, ceremony, and some after, but probably not reception pics. They were so awesome to work with.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
