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

Recommended Posts

I just spoke to a Bride who was married in the Mayan Riviera in November, she said that she purchased her maracas in Playa del Carmen for $1-2, so if the Hacienda is expensive you can head down to Playa!

Is this true?  Has anyone bought them there before?  I swear that I saw a post where someone thought they were cheaper, but, can't find it now.  I'm also wondering if anyone knows if the Hacienda sells starfish?  I'd need about 20 of them.

Thanks,

Sarah

Also, we rented extra lights from the resort (you can also pick different colors)- Eugenia coordinated it with the resort!

 

 



 

Cynlee - I find it  surprising that this infomration isn't available. I went on Air Transats website the other day and tried searching for flights in and around our departure date and was told that info wasn't even available yet. Hopefully we get an update soon!

Air transat didnt release their flight times until 30 days before my group was to depart. And 2 months before departure the flights got bumped by 2 days so instead of them leaving on the friday, they ended up leaving on the sunday, which sucked for hubby and i cuz we didn't get our 3 day honeymoon like planned, we got a 1 day one :P So, just a warning, air transat can change their flights at any time

Yes, we found a photographer. We really liked Chrisâ€s work but he a little out of our price point. We ended up securing a local photographer that has done some work for a couple friends. 

 

Iâ€m also interested in renting the sound & light equipment for the reception. Based on the last review and what Iâ€ve read from other posts, Iâ€m not quite sold on their DJ.

Hey, I was just wondering if we are limited to the two options for the wedding dinner at the a la cartes? We are staying at the Akumal so I think our choices are the Dolce Vita and Frutos del Mar, but wanted to know if anyone else was able to eat at another restaurant.

Thanks!

Crystalz - I hope they don't change anything, it's been enough of a fight to get our flights straightened out as it is!

Really?  Did they just hang them from the palapas or were they actually strung up over the  area? 
 

Also does anyone know the prices for getting your hair done and a mani/pedi at the spa?  I think the price lists are on here or the official thread, but I don't have enough posts to download anything yet.

    • 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
