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

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what kind of rates you gals got for your groups. We are getting them and they seem to keep changing and are a bit higher then I would have expected (even after we reserved 25 airline seats). Also my TA just told me that the standard rooms sold out for the week of our wedding so that means all of our guest will have to book the junior suites, sounds kind of strange right. One of the reasons we booked this resort was due to the number of rooms. If it is sold out already and our wedding is not until Feb now I am starting to panic.smile43.gif

I don't honestly remember our rates... however if your group is booking at the Akumal section the regular rooms selling out is quite common. There are VERY few of them at the Akumal section. Coba has none. So I wouldn't panic too much :)

hmmmm. That's weird. I would go to funjet.com and check their rates and availability. My TA charged the same exact rate that was on funjet.

I'm not sure I can be much help. We booked the Tulum section for Jan and our rates were $1900 per person taxes in for one week. We also got the 16 person free. For two weeks I think it was $2400 per person taxes in. We went with Signature Vacations.

ETA: We flew out of Winnipeg, Manitoba

ETA: Have you tried contacting other TA's (if you're using a TA)?

Oh and your guests can also stay on the Tulum and Coba side and you don't have to pay a fee for them to go to your wedding or anything.

Obviously it depends on where you fly out of and the time of year - we're going Sat Oct 25 to Sat Nov 1st from Vancouver (Canada) and we're paying $1277.25 (including taxes) for anyone that booked before the end of May. On June 1st the fuel surcharge went up $100 so anyone that put a deposit down June 1st or after, the cost is $1377.25. Our TA told us it doesn't matter how many people book, as long as you have 10 you get the group rate. The only incentative for more people booking is that every 21st person (for our specific tour op) is free - they just pay the taxes of $277.25.

Our tour op (Air Canada) doesn't offer jr. suites in the Tulum section so the rates are based on standard rooms. If guests want jr. suites then they get moved to Coba but all our guests decided that being closer to the water was more important than having a bit bigger room.

With regards to the set menu, Jazmin sent me a menu for the Tequila restaurant - JustMartha I can send it along to you if you want - I'm not sure if it is the same as on BahiaGourmet.

Also, does anyone know how flexible they are with the set menu? We have a couple of vegetarians coming and some people who will only eat fish (no other meat) and then some who love their meat. I really really don't want to have to decide for all of them!!
We had three vegetarians in our group and we just told her in our meeting and she took their names and brought them a separate meal. No charge, no worries! :o)
