        I am starting to panic about the resort itself. We have 46 people coming with us (way more than we expected) and we have never been to the resort. I've been having nightmares about the resort being disappointing, guests hating it and everyone getting sick.

        I went onto tripadvisor to try and make myself feel better... bad idea. I know there are always negative reviews about every resort, but it seems like the negative ones about GBP Tulum are increasing... maybe it just seems that way because I am paranoid.

        Can anyone who has stayed at the resort help to set my mind at ease?
        Hi Lou,

        The resort is absolutely amazing, I stayed at the COBA side but did spend some time at Tulum. They have toe best beach and buffet!! Please try not to worry too much, I've done quite a few all-inclusive kind of vacation down south and the GBP is definitely one of the best resort I've ever been!!

              Hi Ladies, did any of you have a welcome dinner or a wedding rehearsal dinner? If so how did you go about this? & what day did you have the wedding rehearsal dinner on?

              Thanks Lisa :)

                  Set your mind at ease! We had 40 guests with us and every single person was absolutely thrilled and amazed with the resort! We have people planning another trip there next year! It exceeded all of our expectations!!

                  Waybuloo, we did a welcome dinner (meet & greet) on the 2nd night we were there and it was a breeze. I contacted my WC well in advance to ask about it and she set the whole thing up at one of the quieter buffets. They even made this cute swan heart thing on our table with place markers and everything! Didn't cost us a thing either. Ours was at the Cozumel buffet in the Premier Lobby. :)

                    Hi Waybuloo,

                    How would you like to do your welcome/rehearsal dinner? You can always ask your WC to reserve a section at one of the buffet so everyone can sit close together. It's a bit more work to do an a la cart, I think you can still try and coordinate with your WC, but it's definitely easier to do it at the buffet :)
