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

Recommended Posts

Can anyone that has just returned from the resort verify if there was a new casino just added to Coba? One of my guests read on trip advisor that there is a new casino called WIN WIN with 40 slots and black jack???

Has anyone used the onsite DJ? I'm really picky about my music but like the idea of having a DJ.  Did you send him a list of songs? Bring an iPod? How did that all work?  We are getting married in March, any info on weather? wind? storms? 

 

This is such a great find of a website/forum! 

 

For those of you having a hard time getting ahold of someone at the resort, be patient, it's the way it works and they wait until about 3 months before your wedding to get to you (they seem to have a list) and then they are great and helpful!

I have read from a number of people that they took music on an iPod for the hired dj to play. I too would like to have my own set lists of songs, but if you are paying for a dj can't you just give him a list and have him download them? Does the resort specifically request that you bring an iPod of songs if you want specific music played? Also, is a cd suffice? Just asking as I'm not iTunes savvy.

 

For people who had the guitar trio play after the ceremony on the beach I.e during the toast, how long did they stick around for? I was told if I wanted music of my own after the ceremony that I would have to pay 90 per speaker lol. Doesn't make sense they would charge me for speakers if they are already set up for the ceremony. In one place I read that the included trio plays for 20 min and in another 45. Has anyone used them for after the ceremony with feedback?

 

I have seen a few pics of cake online and I have not been offered any options other than flavours. Someone was kind enough to send me the pics of cakes from jazmin and they were regular I.e 1 tier cakes. For anyone who had a bigger wedding party and a cake for 30+ were they given other options of a 2 tiered cake and if so did it cost more?

 

For those awaiting for a response, I got my first response yesterday with my wedding in 8 weeks, after trying to get a response for over a month. It took a rather motivating email from my travel agent to get any sort of response

I have an interior picture posted on my photo tour: http://faberphotography.com/gran-bahia-principe-akumal-photo-tour/

 

But for a wedding I'd assume they'd push the tables together to create a large rectangle.

Great pic thanks. I saw there are round tables too....I sure wish they would respond to an email

I just returned from GBP Coba and YES there is a new casino there.

I didn't go in personally but a few of our guests did and said they had a great time.

Did anyone have their dinner at Dolce Vita? Jazmin is suggesting we make a seating plan since we have quite a few guests. I asked her if we can put us and our wedding party together but she said we can't because they can only do up to 10 at a table. Wondering how they set the tables up so we can make a searing plan.

I read online that you could bring your own fabric for the wedding ceremony so I inquired about bringing purple. Does it seem right that they want $150 for me to use my own fabric? I finally heard from the hotel today but seems like they are trying to gouge me a bit. For other people who used fabric did you set it up yourself or pay?
