To get an idea of how the resort is laid out, google "Grand Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Maps" and then select Images.  Tons of maps come up that show the layout of each individual resort, or of all 3 resorts in one.  Although the resort is very spread out, you can walk everywhere in a fairly short time.  There are also trolleys coming and going every 10-15 minutes that stop at specific locations.  The drivers are very helpful to find your way around!   You will definitely need a ride to the hacienda, it's pretty far away from all 3 locations.

 

Future MrsWarner:  I haven't selected a specific date yet, unfortunately.  My fiance and I have decided on the week of November 16th, but we haven't even finalized a resort yet.  We're deciding between two resorts, but the Bahia isn't one of them.  I am on this thread because I stayed at the GBP Coba in September when I was on vacation, and posted asking if I could keep an eye out to answer any questions for any brides while I was down there.  Since I enjoy being helpful, I post on this thread from time to time with any bits of information I have.

 

Hope you ladies are having a wonderful Saturday morning!

    That is nice of you!  Do you remember if the resort give guests a map in their room?  If not, I might make some for my guests!

    Thanks for the help!

    Andrea,

     

    Yes, you get a resort map (one map that includes all 3 resorts).  They gave us one at check in, and then there was also one (or maybe two) in the room.  It was super helpful.  I got a bit lost one day trying to find the beach from Coba! haha.

      Hi

       

       

      I havent made enough posts that I can upload maps of the hotel but I will send a private message to you with them - if anyone else wants them give me a shout.

       

      FYI Every Thursday is Mexican Fiesta night hence the reason we chose this day as the hacienda is even more Mexican and fun :) x

        Hope you got the pm I sent with the 2 attachements

         

        Im not sure if you have been on the Bahia Principe Website - there are pretty good photos on there . . . . . . These are the links with the 3 different locations, if you click on each of them then click on the photos in turn you are given a 360 degree view of each photo point - pretty good

         

        http://www.bahia-pri...esort-tulum/map - Tulum Gazebo wedding location is on the furthest right of this picture

         

        http://www.bahia-pri...sort-akumal/map - Akumal wedding location is roughly on the large beach area in front of the swimming pool that is on the left side of this picture. Coba is the area in the background - it is central and doesnt have it's own beach area.
