cdunn514 - What I'm planning to do is choose the cheapest drink option.  The wedding coordinator said if we want additional variety of drinks, we could bring our own bottles of alcohol and the bartenders will serve it to our guests.  So we are planning on renting a car, going to some store and buying some bottles of alcohol.

I know from the website on http://www.bahia-principe.com/BP/Resorts/Resort/VivirLaNoche/Tulum , the disco closes at 2:30 pm. According to our wedding coordinator, the disco opens at midnight.  But I read from people on this forum that there is live music at the Hacienda, which you can enjoy until the disco opens.

Thanks, I guess we will just have to figure it out once we are there, I was trying to figure out how long to have the poolside reception. We are getting married on a friday the 13th also, everyone keeps giving me a weird look, like why would you choose that date, I think it is fun!

Anyone going to be there between May 8th and May 22? My wedding day is Friday the 13th of May. Scary! Good thing is, if something goes wrong, there is copious amounts of tequila close by!!

Wesjor: You were quoted $1000 for your private cocktail reception at what level of alcohol/open bar??? 

I am getting married at Akumal in November and was quoted like the other women were quoted ($24/per person for first hour) for best level...

Also, is anyone having their dinner at the private location (outdoors) as well (vs in one of the restaurants)???

 

Thanks, 
Dara

Hi - I am at the Akumal in November as well also inquiring about a pool side reception - just received a quote today but getting information is like pulling teeth so far.  I am not entirely sure of how this works yet so if you have any information to date please do share!  I was told a minimum of 50 ppl.

 

I am not entirely pleased with the venue options for the ceremony that I was offered - I would love the Gazebo but it wasn't offered and have to only the beach; the other venue was not big enough for my guests.  If anyone has any suggestions as to other venue's I should be pushing for I would love to hear them.  Thanks!

gabby1182-

 

We were in Riviera Maya in Jan and we went deep sea fishing, we booked it through lomas travel, they had a desk in our lobby and were booking a bunch of different tours, I dont know if you are booking your trip through a package like apple vacations or fun jet but if you are they will have someone in the lobby that you can book your trips through. Anyways we had a lot of fun, and in jan. everything is out of season and we still caught 6 fish. There boats were nice and big enough for up to 6 people plus crew, we had 4 on ours. i do not know the name of the actual fishing company that we used but i do know that is who we booked it through

I believe the $1000 for a max of 50 people was for the "beach party" reception which included a private dinner, bar and dance on the beach.

    • 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.
