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

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies! I am so glad I found this forum! EVen though I'm still overwhelmed by the whole wedding planning thing. My fiance and I are thinking of the Gran Bahia Principe (either Coba or Tulum) as we love their gazebo structure. Anybody here know where they hold the weddings in case it rains? Any indoor pictures would be great! I tried to email the wedding coordinator but they said they will not send out pictures or further information until they get a final confirmation from me. I just don't feel comfortable putting down a deposit without knowing these details. Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry Maddy! I've never seen indoor pictures of weddings. I've heard they have them in the lobbies though, and I've seen multiple pictures of them and they are beautiful! What month are you thinking of getting married in?

We're thinking October 2008. Apparently that's a rainy month so I just want to take pre-cautions. Sunsierra, keep me updated when you find out! I have a co-worker that has a friend that got married at the Bahia last year. The wedding coordinator did not organize an indoor location. Well, it rained on their wedding day and they ended up having the ceremony in the restaurant. I really don't want that to happen to me! I encourage all the ladies here to talk to your WC about indoor locations to prevent this situation.

Hey, sorry for the late reply - Jazmin emailed me and apparently the Tequila restaurant is their rained out location. Here are the pictures she sent me:

Thank you Sunsierra! I'm not thrilled about having it in a restaurant but I guess that's part of the risk. I read somewhere that when it rains in the cancun / mayan riviera area, it's usually only for short periods or usually at night. I hope that's true. Anybody been to the Mayan in October? How rainy is it?

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
