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

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the tip about emailing Poloma, Yuritzia was back to me quickly after that, lol.

Does anyone have any tips on what villas to request? I tried looking at the map but until you've been there it doesn't really have any relevance.

Just an FYI, I requested villas last week... AND IT WAS SENT TO YURITIZIA! I am SO mad! She doesn't respond to ANYTHING so now I HIGHLY doubt we'll get any of the room or dinner reservations we requested. What a joke!

So whatever you do DO NOT say you are there for a wedding or they will send it to her!

How exciting!! Your weddings are coming up sooo quickly. Can't wait to see all your pics and hear details! I'm so jealous that I'm not going to Mexico for another 7 months or so.

Guys, please don't worry about the room requests too much. We tried and we were told by numerous people (our TA, the resort, other people that have stayed) that you can request, but it really doesn't mean anything until you get there. My TA gave me this tip:

 

When you get off the bus (if you're travelling through a tour operator), try to be the first ones to check in (leave FH to collect the bags) and make your request there - that way you'll have the option of different rooms before the rest of the bus does.

 

But really, I don't think there's any really bad rooms (unless you're staying at the Coba - there are some that are very very close to the highway).

 

Your wedding is soooo close - I can't wait! Haha

Okay..questions:

 

Where did you keep your valuables while you were there? I don't think I have read anything on tripadvisor about people stealing from the rooms, but I am still scared.

 

Also, because I am pregnant, I will be limited on what I can drink...was there ample supply of bottled water? And, even though it's bottled, is it still safe? The times I have been there I think I stayed drunk...ha!

 

One more thing: I thought GBP only scheduled one wedding a day?

oohh you are pregnant! Congratulations, that is very exciting :)

 

I think they initially tell you that there is only one wedding per day. Since you are the first wedding, you'll get first pick of what time you want to get married at and what restaurant you want to eat at. (I know this b/c we are the second wedding on our day).

 

I have never been to this particular resort before, but at the one I went to last spring the bottled water was fine, and so was the water they serve you in the restaurants (they have purifiers). My travel agents said that all of the resorts have purifiers.

We kept our valuables in the safe. There is one in each room. You have to ask for a key at check in and it costs $5/day. (But I do know that with some tour operators the safe is included - it wasn't with signature vacations). We never had any problems at all - and we even forgot a few things out some days (money, camera, etc.)

 

All of the water is filtered at the resort (except in the bathrooms - facets, showers, etc). You can get water from the bars (it's not bottled, but it's filtered) and restaurants. You also get 2 huge and 4 small bottles of water in your room. They replenish these everyday or every 2nd day (don't forget to tip the fridge guy!).

Hi there, just about to burn a CD but I'm not sure how many songs I need. Is one enough for people to sit? We have a small group. How many songs am I going to need? I was thinking 3 - 1 for guests and groom, 1 for me to walk, and 1 for us together... am I forgetting anything?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
