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

Recommended Posts

obviously I'm more towards AKumal. I LOVED Akumal. It's slightly newer than Tulum and I LOVED my wedding site. It was perfect!!

Yuritzia is terrible with e-mail communications, but once you get there she delivers 110%

Thanks for all the info. I am leaning more towards Akumal mostly for the beach site. I read some reviews about the beach being rocky and not so great. Did anyone else have this experience? How far is Akumal from the disco?

It is true. The beach is pretty rocky. It didn't stop our guests from playing it in though.

One really nice thing about the beach being rocky is that the wedding location on the Akumal side is NOT swimmable. Which means you don't end up with bikinis and speedos in your wedding photos!!

 

The disco is pretty much the same distance from all of the resorts. They all require a tram ride and it's about 10-15 minutes total.

One last question before I leave. I know the poolside reception is $17 for the first hour per person for the bar, right? What about the second hour? Is it still $17 or a smaller amount?

 

I am going to bed in a little bit because I have to be up at 3am, I hope someone can help me! :)

Who did you use for photography? I've email Claudia Rodriguez a couple times b/c I hear she's the best but she hasn't responded. Any other suggestions?

1kpaine - We used Citlalli of Claudia Rodriguez. It took a few days to get an intial response from them. Were you using the email function from their website? If not, here is the email address I have for Claudia: claudia@claudiaphoto.com

 

eeyor_78 - I think the blood test is required because you cannot get married in Mexico if you have AIDS (this is what I've heard). We went with the legal ceremony at home and just had a 'vow renewal' there so we didn't have to take the blood test. There are lots of girls on here that did have the blood test and they have said it is no big deal at all.

 

The wedding locations for Tulum are on Page 2 of this thread. This is what the Tulum beach location looked like for our wedding:

I'm pretty sure the packages and prices have changed since we went but here they are anyway:

Okay, I finally found some pictures of inside the disco. They are from this website.

 

The dance floor (they had white lights on the pillars when we used it)

The pictures don't do it any justice (our pictures of our first dance look A LOT nicer than these do - I'm sorry I can't post them, they are on a friends camera).

 

ETA: I think these pictures are from 2006 (I don't remember the blue on the ceiling).

I had the blood tests done and it's not a big deal at all. They actually used to require blood tests in the US too... but have since stopped. Basically, I was told you can't have STD's, AIDS, or be brother & sister! :)

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
