Yup, Tulum side only. Not on the Akumal side.
I had guests say at the Coba section and it wasn't a problem.
And finally, yes, you can visit all three resorts if you so choose.

      We stayed on the Tulum side and had guests stayed in the Coba and it wasn't a problem either.

        I think it's easier to think of the Gran Bahia as one resort that has three different sections or hotels (Tulum, Coba, Akumal).

          Question if you don't mind...I've been reading some earlier posts about the packages and pricing. Are the white chairs and covers not included in the package? I had assumed they were but maybe I shouldn't have :o( I'm doing the religious ceremony, the deluxe one. Also, are the basic flowers that are included not very nice? Just wondering if I'll need to upgrade or not...

            FYI in case anyone's interested, my mother in law emailed Jazmin to find out prices for a cocktail party the night before...she sent us these pictures and the prices. We're going to just all end up meeting at a bar instead because it seemed a bit pricy, but just in case anyone else is wondering...

            Our wedding coordinator set up a cocktail reception in the Akumal Lobby for us for free. she made it seem private and they served us personally... so, I would talk to her about that when you get there!

              Hi there, yes the white chairs and covers are included. The basic flowers are quite nice actually. I chose pink roses and there were well over 2 dozen in my bouquet. I have from the WC the choice of flowers with pictures I can e-mail you. I tried to attached it here but it failed.

                Oh really!? She did a private reception area for you? Was that for your actual reception after the wedding or for a cocktail party the night before? Either way that is great!
