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

Recommended Posts

Have any past Bahia brides had their wedding dinner at the Don Pablo?  :)  How many guests were seated at each table?  My fiance and I are trying to figure out how many centerpieces we will need.

Hi Ladies!! Were back from our wedding, and everything was just gorgeous! The staff and wedding coordinators are amazing and will do everything to make your day special. If any of you guys have any questions, just ask or pm me :)

Here's a few tips:

1) private poolside reception definitely a MUST! Jumping in the pool at night was definitely memorable. We hired the resort Dj and he was great!! I was a bit scared at first after reading all the reviewsY&N-10.jpg, but he was honestly amazing. He had most of the songs we requested, but if he didn't he would quickly download it.

2) At the end of the night make sure you pack up all your center pieces and chair sashes or else its your loss.  

3) I wanted flower lillies for my hair and for the bridesmaid, but when I got them they were HUGH... so we didn't end up using them. My advice is to get fake ones or orchids.

4) We got married at the beach in Akumal (Hammock location), it was so beautiful but breezy as well.... so make sure your hair is tied up ;). Luckily we had an engagement shoot the night before the wedding, so I quickly changed my hairstyle so it wouldn't get it the way.

5) TTD- Initially wanted to do it at the cenote, but ran out of time. HOWEVER, the paradise beach is goooorgeous ... white sand, palm trees, turquoise water, and fishing boats. Definitely the postcard look. Oh, and get the resort to call the cab for you so you don't get ripped off. We asked for prices before hand too. We also paid our cab to $10 USD an hour to wait for us while we did our photo shoot so that we didn't have to grab another cab.

I was offered don pablo but I am staying in the Tulum section. Maybe brides staying in Tulum get first choice. Not sure.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
