Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts


FleetMac bride,

I had issues with the "upgrade" situation promised in the free package also.  What Chandlyn said is that it upgrades you to a higher up room on the floor and the amentities in the room (the slippers and robes), but not an "upgraded" level.  There is an upgraded level that allows you access to the Internet Room, free safe, and liquor in the internet room.  This comes with the "Club" level. 

 

There is a newer side to Gran Bahia that was built only a couple years ago...I had to request that we were on that side.  That's probably the different building your agent is referring to.

Also thanks for posting another pic. I just talked to Marcia yesterday and told her I have some cute shoes for her shoe fetish LOL.

 

Thanks

We were also all upgraded for free to the Club Golden from our travel agent as a gift to everyone that has booked.

Your gown is similar to mine you don't look like your dying of heat in it, was the heat tolerable in your dress. I have been worried about roasting my butt off in mine.  shitfan.gif

That's what we had - all the internet access in the club room along with the robe and slippers, etc. and we were in the "new" tower on the 7th floor, plus yes - our safe was free.  I didn't do like Vicky and get the internet access only because we had the free 30 mins per day from the club room. it let us check in with elderly parents, etc. and watch email, which we only did every second day or so. we paid for this with our Transat package. we also bypassed the front desk when we arrived and got taken straight to our room.

I found it was so windy on our wedding day that it kept me cool. it was only when we got away from the beach/gazebo area that I started to get hot even with strapless. the park we went to got really warm and that was at 4PM. that's when I was desperate for something cool to drink. but if you stay down near the beach you should be fine, and the restaurants are cool inside.

So, I'm in need of a new photographer for my TTD session.  We had hoped to use Merrick, but I left him hanging for too long and he booked another wedding.  Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on a good photographer?

 

Thanks!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
