      Hi ladies,

      We have a couple of friends who are staying outside the resort but are attending the wedding - do they need a full day pass, or is there possible a 'cheaper' option for them just to arrive for the wedding and dinner? We've told them to come in the morning and eat and drink all day, but they're wanderers and would like to do their own thing. 

      Thanks :)

        We are having a poolside reception at Tulum from 8-11pm, but want to have a "post-reception" option to continue the party. Does anyone have suggestions? Thx!!

        Many people will make their way to the Hacienda.  The disco doesn't open until midnight, but there is usually live music in the lobby up until that point.  So just make your way to the lobby and then to the hacienda :)

          I'm also wondering about PIANO BARS - at either Coba or Akumal...has anyone been? Good, bad? We would like to use one as a meeting place for some of our older guests...

          The Daiquri bar in Coba is a great meeting place.  It's the wine bar.  They usually have nice entertainment, there is a little shopping area right outside, and it's a more "luxurious" feel than most of the other bars.

            I have been on and off of here, and once read about bringing fabric for the beach location. How much should I bring with me? I just can't hunt down that thread again

            Hi! I am new to this forum, and this is my first post!  Wow... what an awesome place for info!! 

             

            My fiance and I are looking at booking this resort for our wedding Feb 2014 and I have been reading all the posts to get an idea of costs and which of the 3 resorts we should book. I was wondering if anyone has an updated list of the extra costs for flowers, etc that they could email me?

             

            Also, i saw the official post re: package prices for 2011/2012, but just wondering if there is a maximum number of people for each, or just a minimum? On the Bahia website, the package prices say, for example "Remember pkg: From $600 minimum 20 guests". Does that mean that I have to pay extra for each guest over the 20? 

             

            My email address is lizgerry@sasktel.net if anyone has the price list/brochure.

             

            Thank you so much for the help!  

            Liz

              Hey,

               

              Just wondering if anyone knows about the golf at the resort. I read on the actual website that golf is free for hotel guests, however on the golf course website it says it is 65$ per person per round for hotel guests (including cart and snacks). Has anyone been that can confirm the price?

               

              Thanks!

              Christy

              Yes Christy it's a bit confusing, you must take a buggy and that's what the cost is for, the charge is per person for buggy hire refreshment including beers and snacks on the course. Hope this helps Kirstin 😄
