          CrystalZ - I was thinking of renting a car.  Parking at the resort is free. 

           

          Below is the information I'm giving my guests on transport from the airport to the hotel.

           

          http://www.cancun-ai...nsportation.htm

          To arrange ground transportation from the airport to the hotel, click on the link above that says "view website". On that website, type in the name of the hotel "Gran Bahia Principe" Tulum or Coba and the date you arriving and it will show you the prices.

            So, new to the site and really happy I found this because I HAVE BEEN STRESSING! Getting married May 13th at GBP Akumal and having touble finding out any information from the WC~~! Specifially, what the heck do we do for music, dancing, and speeches?! Is the only option the poolside cocktail hour that costs extra? Honestly, we thought something would be included with the wedding package so we didn't budget for the poolside cocktail hour as we didn't think it would be necessary, but now I wonder... I want to have a first dance with my new husband! Do they let you rent equipment to play music?

              Hi saucy friend, yes im the same, I assumed all things like that were included in the package which is why we went for the top one. This site is awesome though for finding out ideas etc. I cant get any response from WC yet. Our wedding isnt til Jan but I just want to know details, prices etc coz we hadnt budgeted for poolside reception either! Where u from ?

                Hi Jemma! I'm from Canada (British Columbia)- you? I can tell you the price Eugenia quoted me:

                A private cocktail after the dinner beside the pool or at the Coba room (with air conditioning) from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm, as it is private it will have the following cost:
                DJ 190USD + tax per hour and he may play only your music (bring it on IPOD or CD) or mix it with the one that he has or only play his music.
                For drinks you have the following options:
                National Bar:        
                Beer, Rum, Vodka, Tequila, Cocktails, Gin, Whisky                       17US$/pers/hour
                                                 extra hour: 12 US$/pers
                International Bar:        
                Beer, Tequila, Rum, Vodka Absolute, Whisky JW,
                Chivas Regal, Cutty Sark, Cocktails, Gin Beefeater,
                wine of the house, sparkling wine                                                     24 USD/pers/hour
                               extra hour: 18 US$/pers

                Special Cocktails:
                Beer, Pi±a Colada Cocktail, Margarita Cocktail & Sparkling Wine         5 USD/per/hour
                               extra hour: 3 US$/pers
                CANAPES
                Mixed Canapes 5 pieces                   8 USD/ person
                Mixed Deluxe Canapes 10 pieces        10 USD/person


                 

                1) we are going all inclusive, so why should we pay extra for booze?

                2) If the DJ is going to play off my iPod, why the heck is it $190 USD per hour!

                 

                This seems insane! I am trying to find out from her what the options are. I don't mind hanging out with everybody at the resort~~ I'm very social anyway, and think it would be hilarious to dance with random guests. I just want to have a first dance, the cheezy father/daughter, mother/son dances, etc... and I would like to have speeches where we can thank our guests for coming etc. I wonder if we do this at dinner? I wouldn't paying a bit extra, but this would be like $2500 extra, since we have 32 guests.

                 

                Can anyone share thoughts on what they have done? I am trying to look through the backlog of posts on here.... which are super helpful btw!

                      We had our dinner at the Dolce Vita. They are actually both in the same building beside eachother so they have the same view pretty much. They are both looking out towards the pool, which is where the poolside reception would be if you are having that. Hope this helps!
