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

Recommended Posts

Ladies - I'm seeking your input on something...we are ordering the bubba keg mugs for our adult guests but we also have 5 kids coming whose ages are 5, two 9 yr olds, 11 and 13. Suggestions on a favour for these kids? We could get them smaller cups (the plastic ones with the screw on top and straw) but I'm not sure how much use they would get out of those?
I plan on making up little bags for the kids with a few beach toys, pool floaties, beach balls, snacks, but I'll probably include a cup/ drink container of some sort. Just a few activities from the dollor store really! Hope this helps!

This was in the Tulum lobby. They have pillars in the Coba lobby as well, and I believe the Coba lobby has 3 pillars. The Akumal lobby is some kind of statue, so it doesn't look the same.

I just came back from my wedding as well. Hammock location at Akumal... and I hate to say it but if I actually cared about weddings at all I would be FURIOUS. However i don't really so it all went well,  I ended up married and thats all that matters right? If anyone wants it I will write a full detailed review. Here is a link to the youtube video of the ceremony. It isn't great quality but shows kind of how it goes down, and things you might need to contend with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPKXJiAWlE0

 

If you have any questions and want an honest answer, let me know I am an open book.

 

Dinner: Dolce Vita

Reception: Poolside

Ceremony: Hammocks Akumal

Oh my!

 

Thank you for your honest post. Was your ceremony legal? I assume that was not a judge since it was in english.

 

What about the poolside reception and dinner?

 

A review of the vacation and wedding would be great.

Vacation was awesome, I had good service the whole time and my air conditioner kicked ass. Which is really my #1. The a la cartes were amazing and definitly worth going to. The buffet was average to below average. It was too hit or miss.

 

I can tell you all the things that went wrong in the wedding.

Eugenia was pretty much useless, and I can honestly say the day of the wedding I actually found her rude. Which to me seems ridiculous because I am not pushing or anything like that when it comed to weddings.

 

She told my aunt to put up some decor early in the morning that we wanted, and my aunt spent about two hours putting it up in the sweltering heat with some help from one of the other guys that does set up for the weddings. about ten minutes after she is finished and comes up to my room to start to get ready, we look out and there is another bride walking down the aisle for a 1pm ceremony looking all confused and pissed off that she has all this blue decorations.... and then Don't we look out around 215 pm (ceremony is at 3pm) AND SOME OTHER WEDDING PLANNER IS RIPING IT ALL DOWN! My MOH had to run down the beach screaming in her underwear to leave it up and put it back and they sat there and argued with her about it in spanish... until one of my spanish guests came out and let them have it... And where is Eugenia? ummm no where to be found.

 

So that being said, if the bride that was married on the 19th at 1pm was upset about the decorations, my sincerest apologies as we had no idea you would even be there and were told to put them up.

 

My flowers were wrong... which to me is ridiculous... I barely even had any flowers, and they screwed up the corsages that I asked to have as wrist and they came as pin on. I didn't even see the flowers until ten minutes before my ceremony. And again,... Eugenia is no where to be found.

 

Eugenia shows up finally at the top of the hill for the ceremony and starts telling the bridesmaids to walk the aisle at the same time as the mothers were being escorted. Wrong music, Wrong timing, Wrong everything. I wasn't even down there yet.

 

I also paid $2000 for a great photographer to come do our wedding and I did NOT WANT THE ARRECIFE there which I told Eugenia multiple times. Guess who shows up and refuses to leave? Arreciffe. Not to mention I didn't even have a meeting with them prior. I was told they wouldn't be there... and they were. and now I have shitting pictures from them, and the photographer is in alot of my professional photos from my photographer. She was pissed. So was I.

 

To be continued before I get so angry my head bursts.

Aww :( Sorry you had that experience. I watched your video and you were a gorgeous bride. Did wearing your hair down cause you any grief. Did you use the hair salon at Coba? Did you do your own makeup?
 
My biggest stressor right now is the fact that my dress is NOT corsette back, buttons covering a zipper and If I change weight at all (story of my life) it could be a big problemo.
 
Our wedding is on December 19th and I really hope its a different situation. But good to know about Arrecife, I will ensure to track them down and sign their release form so they do not show up.

    • 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.
