          Hi everyone,

          We are pretty sure we want to get married here in November 2010. We've already stayed at the resort and loved it! I'm just wondering what's the best way to find out wedding date availability/book the date? We were hoping for the Akumal section. I've searched all through their web materials and I couldn't find it. I've thought about just calling, but not sure how effective that would be? Please point me in the right direction :-)

          I look forward to joining in and planning!

          - Terra

            Thanks for the great review! How did your guests get from the ceremony to the dinner and to the pool side reception? Also-which pool was the reception at and if they did not have the drinks you wanted at the pool side reception was it a problem to go to one of the bars? was there one close? thanks!

            Terrra, I would definitely recommend calling (actually, having your travel agent call). You can also email Paloma... but sadly I don't have her email any more. I'm sure one of the ladies on here can help you.

                Hi Terra,

                Here is Paloma's email to get you date booked - groupsmx@bahia-principe.com

                Paloma is the one in charge of the wedding coordinators at the 3 resort locations. Like Trish mentioned, the best way to reach the resort however is to call. I emailed to book my date and when I got no reply in 48 hours, I called and booked over the phone, then got an email confirmation from Paloma right after. Just call the main hotel number, and ask for Paloma tell them you'd like to book a wedding. The front desk people speak decent English.

                I also got married in the Akumal section and loved it!!! I would recommend the beach location. Yuritzia used to be the wedding coordinator there, but I think there is someone new now. Good luck with your planning!!

                    Our wedding was at 2pm and the dinner wasnt until 6pm. So our guest had a few hours to kill. There was a trolly that went by every 10min. So the guests took that trolly back to their rooms. Our guests rooms were right next to the Turtuga where we had our dinner. There was also a trolly that would have brought us to the dance...but we walked. Our pool side dance was near the main pool at Tulum. I dont think any of our guests went to another bar to get drinks because we all drank beer. But the lobby bar was on the other side of the huge pool, so that wouldnt have been a problem. Everything went wonderful. I had a lot of worriesbefore hand, but the wedding coordinator really knew what she was doing.
