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

Recommended Posts

Nic,

 

I am sorry to hear that.... I just got married in March and we did the pool side reception but it was based on the type of bar we got and then per person/per hour (I was also dealing with Eugenia as I got married in Akumal). We got the Special Bar and paid $11 per person ($5 the first hour, $3 for the remaining 2 hours). We also were able to order anything and everything - not just the cocktails listed for the type of bar. I would just write back and try to clarify that you want the reception?

 

Anyway, I hope you get it figured out...

In one of the first emails she sent me she gave me a quote for the poolside party which was $1,070 for 40 people including special bar and DJ.....I presumed (stupidly) that she had quoted me for 40 people as I had said that we may have between 30-40 people attending....Anyway I have gone ahead and booked DJ Bijan after reading reviews and had emailed her again asking for a quote without the resort DJ and for 25 Adults & 6 Children as we haven't got as many people coming now as first thought. She has replied back stating that the poolside reception is a package price of $1,070 and is not per person??? ( We get married 24th October 2012 if that makes a difference? - not sure if its recently changed??)

 

Did anyone else have this before stating which price bar they wanted and getting the price pp per hour for that?

 

Thanks

 

Nic.x

Jazmin's english isn't the best - and it says 'per groups' so I'm not sure...huh.gif

I believe it was $110 per person for the gold member! They get better seats and view of the stage :). And yes, unfortunately if some guests go with gold then your group will be separated. When we went they had a certain section for all the GBP gold members, and GBP standard tickets.

A few questions for past brides :)

 

Did the restaurant staff cut your wedding cake for the guests after you and your husband cut the first piece?

 

My fiance and I would like to add an hour to our pool side reception.  Is this an option? If so, how much would it cost?

Hi Maria! Yes, the staff does cut the wedding cake for you after the first cut by you and your husband. We had the poolside reception until 11, but could have definitely stayed longer. You might need to make that special request to your WC :)

We asked our WC if we could have the poolside reception later and were told no, the latest they could do was 11. We did our cake cutting at the reception and had to do it ourselves.

Hi Ladies - i've seen a lot of debate on BDW regarding starfish and people being allowed to bring them into Mexico for their decor. I'm wanting to use them for my chairs during the ceremony but I dont want to run into trouble with customs etc.
Have any of you past brides brought these in? Is there a way to bring them without getting them taken away? OR is there somewhere i can buy them in Playa Del Carmen?

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
