Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

Just wondering if anyone out there has the wedding package info for this resort. I've sent 5 emails requesting it and my travel agent has sent 2.

 

I'm about to lose my mind. I need the wedding info before I can book my trip...and the rate I was quoted is only good until Tuesday. I know they are probably busy with weddings right now, but it would only take them a minute to email the info. Should I take this as a bad sign??!! So frustrating.

 

We are doing the Renewal of Vows ceremony - so if anyone has the info on this...I'd be forever greatful if you sent it to me!!

 

Thanks!

Hi there!

I am getting married at this resort November 2009. I have been dealing with the wedding coordinator Gildania and her assistant Leslie.

 

Here is their contact information:

 

Gildania Pilarte

weddings coordinator Hotel Gran Bahía Príncipe-Punta Cana

Email:weddingscoordinatorbppuj@bahia-principe.com

 

Tel: 809 552 1444 ·Ext:13013 Fax: 809 468 4780

Bavaro Higuey · Provincia La Altagracias Rep. Dom.

 

I know they do the renewal of vows option and I think it's around $600US. The standard wedding apckage that covers 10 people is $1500US.

I think their package prices are pretty standard.

Thanks for the information!!! I've officially booked the trip. We have 16 confirmed guests! So excited! However I still can't seem to get a response from the wedding coordinator about booking the wedding. She emailed me some information and seems to be ignoring me....maybe she's just really busy?? Anyone else having these problems?

Hey NatashaKC thanks for passing on the review to me! It was very informative!

 

You'll have to send me your review when you get back from your wedding - I'd love to hear your thoughts as well!

No problem:)

I also have a hard time getting a reply from the co-ordinator at GBP. I heard Gildania is no longer there but I was in contact with her replacement. I recently submitted my completed wedding questionnaire but haven't heard anything back yet. t drives me a little crazy when I don't get ANY response to my questions:)

That sucks that everyone is having such a hard time with them. I've been talking to Cynthia and usually get a reply the next day. Sometimes even within a few mins.

Okay - I am no longer having problems (knock on wood). Cinthya started replying to all of my emails and answering all of my questions. I love her. She's so patient, and REALLY helpful!! I'm starting to get very excited!

I am also having amazing luck with Cinthya now. Every e-mail I send, she gets right back to me! This is hard to get used to:)

 

Plus, I am so excited that the wedding packages have changed from last year. They are way better! My Sunshine package that used to be $1500 USD for 10 people and $85 USD for each additional is now $1350 USD for 24 people and $35 USD for additional.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
