Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

I seem to be having a hard time getting a respsone from the coordinators.  I used the email you guys provided to me and still haven't heard back. :)  I know they are super busy so maybe I will give it a little more time, I don't want to be too pushy however it is very discouraging when I have received responses from some other places I have requested information from.  I really hope to hear back about the prices for the private cocktail hour and possibly private dinner.  I know they are super busy, and thank goodness I have lots of time to figure it out.

 

We are planning on booking a vacation in March at one of the spots we are the most interested in having our wedding.  It would be nice to know if this will be our #1 contender based on the private arrangements and prices.   The other one is the Palladium resorts. 

 

Thanks for all your help so far ladies!

 

And congrats about winning that contest, that must of been very excitting!

Try emailing groupsmx@bahia-principe.com, and type "URGENT" in the subject line.  I got a response a few hours later when I was first planning our wedding.  Hope that helps!

Hi Wendy, The email address Angie mentioned above is the one that I used.  But I didn't really get specific prices about reception, etc until I booked my hotel there and they officially booked my wedding date.

 

Does anyone know about those websites that sell dresses for cheaper?  For example, I'm looking at http://www.bestdressprice.com at the prices are really cheap.  It makes me a little skeptical.  However at the same time, if the dresses are really available for that low price...I want to pay the lowest price!

 

I went to a consignment bridal boutique today and liked the Allure 8627 ivory dress that is selling it for $575 (they told me it was a sample dress from another store that was no longer selling that style).  On that bestdressprice website, I found the same dress for $258!

I ordered one of my bridesmaids dresses from Houseofbrides.com. It was a dessy dress, and it was about $100 cheaper than the store as well. It took a lot longer than they quoted me, and it was not the same quality...definitely a nock off. Don't get me wrong the quality was still alright, I am happy with it, but you can tell fromn the seems and suck that it is not actually Dessy.

Because it was taking so long, I looked into another online store for the rest of my bridesmaid dresses and heard good things about dressforlessbridal.com.  The customer service is definitely a lot better, and the price was about the same as houseofbrides. I am still waiting for the dresses to arrive though so I can't speak for the quality. Although, the guy I spoke with on the phone assured me they were real Dessy dresses.

I'll keep you posted.

Hello All!  I am so thankful that I found this site, it's been so helpful in the beginning of  planning our March 2012 destination wedding.  We have decided to book at the Gran Bahi Principe, but are still a bit undecided at which exact resort but are leaning towards the Coba location; It seems to be newer and we like the idea of the three story Villa's.   According to our travel agent it's to early to get prices for the all inclusive vacation( we are expecting 25-35 people)  and while it's to early to book I would like to give people an idea of how much it's going to cost so they can have the down payment ready.  I "faked" booked a trip for this March and it was around $1600.00. for anyone who has recently booked  does that seem about right?  Also I was wondering if anyone had any pictures they wouldn't mind sharing with me.  We are thinking the Tulum gazebo and diner at one of the restaurants with a pool side reception.  I would appreciate any feedback or recommendations and will continue reading the all post on here  ( I started with the most recent and am working my way back )  Thanks again to everyone who posts on here, I was so nervous when I agreed to a destination wedding ( it's what my fiancee has always wanted ) because I have never been in any of the locations before, but after reading all your post my mind is at ease, and I am getting excited.

Hi Pammy,

What city are you flying from and how many nights would they be staying?  The prices seem to change daily.  Occasionally expedia or applevacations will have a sale.

 

I recently talked to two different coworkers who attended destination weddings in Cancun and they had a blast. So I think it's fun for the people going to the wedding and a good way to have a group vacation.

Hi Christi

Congratulations Pammy!

Coba is a beautiful resort, they all are.  You've made a great choice.

 

I see we have a lot of new brides, so for those who haven't made it back to the beginning of this thread yet, HI!  I'm Trisha.  I got married at GBP Akumal at the Hammock location in April of 2008.  I had a private poolside reception.  I absolutely loved my wedding and wouldn't have changed a thing (okay, that's a lie... but about the actual wedding itself, nope!).  As I am approaching my three year anniversary (where did the time go?) I realize that my information might be outdated now, but I still like to help when I can!  So if you have any questions, just let me know!

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
