Gran Bahia Principe

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I am planning on getting married April 2010 at the Gran Bahia Principe Resort I am finding everyone's info a great help so far. I just started planning 2 days ago and things are moving fast at least as far as the flights go and am waiting response from the coordinator regarding a lot of questions I have. My travel agent is the middle person and it is awesome as she has done this a lot so I go through her and so far I recommend going that way if possible.

Hi there,

 

I'm planning on getting married there in April 2010 as well. I'm waiting to hear back from my TA about group rates and if the date I want can be reserved. I'm super inpatient so waiting to get replies from everyone is frustrating, haha.

Hi we are thinking of going to that resort in May 2010....I don't know if it's just me, but prices seem really high right now....do you think it would be better to wait for things to settle down with the swine flu, or do you think it's smarter to hurry up and book now before it's too late?? Ahhhh so confused lol

My TA told me that prices have not come out for that time next year and won't come out until mid summer most likely. The further in advance you book, the more expensive it is. Which is unfortunate because of course we're going to want to book asap. I want to book my wedding photographer but I can't do that until the hotel and date are confirmed. I'm trying to get group rates which can apparently be locked in at this time. I'd need 10 people but i'm having a small wedding and will only have 10-15 people who don't have a clue what they're going to do in regards to where they are staying. So as of right now, no one will commit to being part of the group rate so as of right now, I can't book anything. It's very frustrating. So what i'm trying to do, is reserve the wedding day I want before booking the package as I may have to wait until prices do come out. I'm waiting to hear back on if I can have the date.

I am interested in having my wedding there sometime in Nov 2010. Do you have a direct e-mail to the wedding coordinator at the hotel. Thanks. Has anyone done a site visit?

Hi,

I am also getting married at the Gran Bahia Prinicipe in April 2010. I am waiting for confirmation on my wedding date. My travel agent and I have been corresponding with the wedding coordinators for a couple of months trying to get the date confirmed and it should hopefully be done very soon. I am also from Nova Scotia...what date are you hoping to get married, maybe we will be there at the same time :)

Hi,

 

My dates are April 18th to 25th. We have 10 people booked with deposits and the price we are quoted is 1695.00 each (from Halifax) for a junior suite in the Diamond section. Some people thought that was high but 2 other couples I know are also getting married there the week before and are paying 1719.00 so that must be the going rate. I know the weddings are great there and if you don't book now you might not get the time and location you want for the wedding (so I was told by 2 other couples who got married there 2 and 3 years ago).

 

For those of you in Vancouver, my TA is still waiting for prices for my friends and relatives who are traveling from Edmonton, hopefully by Monday or Tuesday.

 

Helen

The wedding coordinator is no longer Gildania, she left! The contact person is Claribel, you can use the same email address

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • 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
