CrystalZ - I was thinking of renting a car.  Parking at the resort is free. 

 

Below is the information I'm giving my guests on transport from the airport to the hotel.

 

http://www.cancun-airport.com/transportation.htm

To arrange ground transportation from the airport to the hotel, click on the link above that says "view website". On that website, type in the name of the hotel "Gran Bahia Principe" Tulum or Coba and the date you arriving and it will show you the prices.

So, new to the site and really happy I found this because I HAVE BEEN STRESSING! Getting married May 13th at GBP Akumal and having touble finding out any information from the WC~~! Specifially, what the heck do we do for music, dancing, and speeches?! Is the only option the poolside cocktail hour that costs extra? Honestly, we thought something would be included with the wedding package so we didn't budget for the poolside cocktail hour as we didn't think it would be necessary, but now I wonder... I want to have a first dance with my new husband! Do they let you rent equipment to play music?

Hi Jemma! I'm from Canada (British Columbia)- you? I can tell you the price Eugenia quoted me:

A private cocktail after the dinner beside the pool or at the Coba room (with air conditioning) from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm, as it is private it will have the following cost:

DJ 190USD + tax per hour and he may play only your music (bring it on IPOD or CD) or mix it with the one that he has or only play his music.

For drinks you have the following options:

National Bar:        

Beer, Rum, Vodka, Tequila, Cocktails, Gin, Whisky                       17US$/pers/hour

                                 extra hour: 12 US$/pers

International Bar:        

Beer, Tequila, Rum, Vodka Absolute, Whisky JW,

Chivas Regal, Cutty Sark, Cocktails, Gin Beefeater,

wine of the house, sparkling wine                                                     24 USD/pers/hour

               extra hour: 18 US$/pers

Special Cocktails:

Beer, Piña Colada Cocktail, Margarita Cocktail & Sparkling Wine         5 USD/per/hour

               extra hour: 3 US$/pers

CANAPES

Mixed Canapes 5 pieces                   8 USD/ person

Mixed Deluxe Canapes 10 pieces        10 USD/person

 

 

1) we are going all inclusive, so why should we pay extra for booze?

2) If the DJ is going to play off my iPod, why the heck is it $190 USD per hour!

 

This seems insane! I am trying to find out from her what the options are. I don't mind hanging out with everybody at the resort~~ I'm very social anyway, and think it would be hilarious to dance with random guests. I just want to have a first dance, the cheezy father/daughter, mother/son dances, etc... and I would like to have speeches where we can thank our guests for coming etc. I wonder if we do this at dinner? I wouldn't paying a bit extra, but this would be like $2500 extra, since we have 32 guests.

 

Can anyone share thoughts on what they have done? I am trying to look through the backlog of posts on here.... which are super helpful btw!

We had our dinner at the Dolce Vita. They are actually both in the same building beside eachother so they have the same view pretty much. They are both looking out towards the pool, which is where the poolside reception would be if you are having that. Hope this helps!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
