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

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

Just wondering if anyone has used the resort spa for their make-up? Tlseege i think maybe you did? I read a couple reviews on here but it doesn't seem like too many people use them for make-up... Has anyone used them, or know what type of make-up they use? It seems like a lot less of a hassle then bringing someone in..but i don't want my make-up to suck either!!!

Yup, I used them, as did a few of my bridesmaids.  We were very happy.  However, we're also not huge makeup wearers so not necessarily sure we could tell the difference!

Hi ladies who have already been... I have a couple of questions about restaurants at GBP. I haven't received any response from the resort itself, so hoping you can help me out.

 

We are staying at Tulum...does this mean we also have access to the buffets at Akumal and Coba?

 

Are the a la carte restaurants open (and free) for breakfast and lunch?

 

Is it possible to book your a la carte restaurant reservations before you arrive, or do you have to do this on site?

 

Is the Hacienda Dona Isabella accessible to all guests?

 

Gracias!

Is it possible to book your a la carte restaurant reservations before you arrive, or do you have to do this on site? Some people have luck booking before they arrive... some (such as myself) do not.  It's a gamble.

 

Is the Hacienda Dona Isabella accessible to all guests? Yes, except on Thursday evenings when you'd have to purchase a pass to the Mexican Fiesta.

 

Gracias!

So I'm looking into wedding colors.  My invites were silver and black which I find really chic, but I was looking into brighter colors for my bouquet and as accents.  I'm really drawn to plum but thats another dark color.  So I was wondering if anyone had plum in their bouquet from the resort.  I can't download the brochures yet, still working on my 150 posts!

 

Thanks!

I think plum with pops of green would be REALLY beautiful.

 

And i forgot the picture.  Ugh!  Sorry!  Basically the beach was being very well restored.  They already had dump trucks of sand brought it.  However the piers are completly gone, the beach bars are completely gone, the palayas were in ruins, and the wedding structure is down to three sticks. 

 

However, they were working really hard at fixing everything.  It's probably even fixed by now (with exception to the piers and bars)

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
