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

Recommended Posts

The ceremony took approximately 30 minutes. It wasn't very long, and this is also after we had an extra 5 minutes or so of my sister in law doing a quick reading for us. The new website is difficult to upload photos, but I was able to find this one of us during the ceremony at the gazebo in Tulum.

Hi could you tell me how much it was to hire the red carpet for the gazebo?

The red carpet was a free option, if you wanted it. I would just confirm with the WC before you request for it though, just because each WC seems to be telling their brides different things sometimes.

Thanks for the info and pic. :)

 

I tried to post this the other night but I'm having a lot of trouble navigating this new website! Did anyone get any prescription medication for before the trip, ie - dukoral (sp?) or twinrex? Normally I wouldn't even worry about it but since it's my wedding I want to take all precautions! lol

Does anyone know if the resort uses filtered water to wash produce and to make ice for the drinks?

I believe on their website it says they have purified water, but I wouldn't know for sure.  I do know that although I DO NOT use the faucet water for anything that goes in my mouth, all I drink at the resort is water and fruit drinks (no alcohol) and I've never gotten sick.  I trust it.

It is definitely safe to drink the water/use ice cubes in all restaurants/bars at the Bahia. They provide bottled water for use in your rooms. As Trish mentions, do not use the faucet water in either your room or in the public washrooms for anything but showering/washing your hands. I have never gotten sick in the 14 times I've been there over the last 8 years...like Trisha, I trust their water implicitly.

I'm not married yet but we've been to the Coba twice, going for a 3rd time next month and we love Don Pablo's, not sure if that's an option for you if you are staying at Coba for a wedding meal but I would look into it. The food is superb there, we try to eat there twice every trip and are never disappointed, plus the location is right by the ocean at the Tulum resort.

 

 

I have to say ladies, you guys are offering alot of solid advice and help. I've been a lurker on here for a few years and now am starting to "plan" - I know an engagement is coming this year and we both want to get married at Bahia, just waiting on the proposal. I'm not one to count chickens before they hatch however we have been dating 8 years and 3 months, I'm allowed to start planning a bit in my opinion LOL!!

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
