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

I didn't bring anything like that for the maids...quite honestly, Mexico is still a poor country but man has it changed in the past years....most of the staff work 8 hour days and they don't seem to be begging for tips....I'm not naive to think that they have a lot but truthfully, they like the same things you and I are interested in....I think they would rather have a blackberry, Gucci sunglasses or my MAC makeup than crayons...they know just as much about what is the good life as we do...Playa Del Carmen shocked me as it has developed so much in the past 7 years....it's so expensive and they live more of a life than we do here...some people anyways...
PHOTOGRAPHER AT BAHIA PRINCIPE
Ladies, I just talked to Jose who was my photographer at Bahia Principe Akumal...He was amazing...Im still trying to figure out how to post my pictures on here but anyways, he is available and he said the best way to reach him is
I absolutely loved him. We flew down our photographer from Canada and I was very disappointed in their work....Jose took some random shots for free as part of our wedding package and I absolutely LOVED his work...very funky, sexy, vintage, cool....if that's what you're looking for....I'm not a posey pose kind of bride so he captured everything perfectly....fave pic is me laughing and clapping and my new husband bawling....awwwwww....I wish I could post the pics so you could see!!!
Email me at email@example.com if you want me to show you pics.

It helps to send an email ahead of time and also to the coordinator and they will always say they cannot promise to accomodate your requests since everyone requests Ocean View...that being said...Villa 65, 66 and 67 are the best ones in Golden...you pay a little more for Golden section but you have your own private check in and check out, your own private lobby so you don't have to wait with everyone, free internet and your own area for buffet if you don't feel like going to the main buffet, plus it's the closest to the beach. All our guests (12 rooms) were in the Golden section of some sort and they gave every one of them an ocean view....they were fantastic...This was our 2nd time at the resort and in my opinion...Villa 66 on the 2nd floor is the best. If you have any more questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as I don't check this often.
I've made friends with the photographer and the coordinator Eugenia so I would be happy to answer any questions if they don't get back to you quickly.
Congratulations...you're going to LOVE your destination wedding!

Each hotel has their own coordinator so you plan your dinner with them for their hotel restaurants. With some exceptions... the fish restaurant is in each hotel property and so is a variation of the italian one. The Gran Tortuga, Tequila... those places are unique to the Tulum property.
