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

Recommended Posts

I am having the poolside dinner, so the prices that I was quoted wont help you, but I am pretty sure that further back in this thread there are the reception only prices.

I have a question for all of you about the wedding package prices. We are just doing the symbolic ceremony so were going to go with the Deluxe Package at $1160US. However, I am starting to think we are getting a bit ripped off with this as we are not using the "included dinner" we are paying an additional $1015 US for the poolside dinner anyway. So really we are paying $1160 for the non legal minister, flower arrangement, cake, transportation for the bride, and a few amenities. Seems a bit much. Is there anyone else out there that is paying for the poolside dinner getting a different ceremony package?

Thanks for your help

I'm not sure the price is that far off.  Your paying $1015 for a poolside reception with dinner included right?  That's not much more than I'm paying for just the poolside reception ($845) which covers everything including DJ.  I don't think your being ripped off.  Just my opinion though.

I am having the pooside reception after the dinner and was quoted 3 different prices depending on the drink selection that I wanted.  I went with the cheaper one (guests can go to one of the other bars if they want special drinks that we won't have) that was $5/person for the first hour with $3/person for subsequent hours.  We booked for 3 hours so basically $11/person.  I opted to use DJ Bijan so the only cost for me to the hotel is only the $11 per person.  We also didn't get the canapes since we are having a full dinner just before that.

Hi there,

I just returned from having our wedding on the Tulum side October 27th. We too used DJ Bijan and we booked our privatr reception for 2 hours which worked out to $8/person. BJ Bijan was just awesome. Our guests were dancing the whole entire time and it was really great and easy to work with. We also didn't get the canapes (actually under advisement from our wedding coodrinator) We had our wedding dinner at The GRan Tortuga Restaurant and it was amazing. And just as Jazmin our wedding coodrinator said you don't need the canapes....the wedding meal is quite filling and good food. And if by chance your guests are still hungry where they set up the private poolside recption is right by the 24 hour snack bar. I have the price lists if you would like...just PM your email address.

Hi - I'm just wondering the prices you are noting here (11/hr/person) is that above and beyond a flat rate for the poolside reception?? I am getting married at the Tulum in the Spring and that is not what I was quoted at all :( Maybe I misunderstood what you wrote!

I am doing almost the exact same thing at Patourn.  Dinner at Gran Tortuga, with the poolside cocktail reception for 3 hours, so it works out to $11 per person for the special drinks (beer, wine, margaritas), and we hired DJ Bijan, who is $150 per hour...

 

We leave in 18 days, I am SO excited!!!

Hi There,

 

Regardless of what side of the resort you stay on you have access to the a la cartes at all 3. My suggestion book as soon as you get there becuase they fill up fast.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
