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

Carretera Arena Gorda Macao

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.

    • 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!!
