Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Thanks so much Mekanbr - those were pretty much the same questions I've been waiting for Beverly to respond to!   And it's great to have pics of the restaurants from different perspectives - gives us a better idea of what they look like

thanks again for posting all that info as I am sure we all have the same questions!

 

I emailed her last week and she already emailed me back! wahoo!

 

I asked if we are having the free wedding package if we need to put down a 25% deposit for the rest of the stuff (gazebo, additional 20 for dinner, additional flowers, etc) and she said it would be due when we meet with her when we get there...so good to know for the rest of you also going with the free package :)

 

I am still wanting to know dinner options for the Grill and Italian as I was going to make menu's from Vistaprint before we leave. I guess I will worry about it closer to the time...thats the problem with being anal retentive! haha

Thanks for all the info!

I've been waiting for answers for a WHILE from her as well... the last batch I sent, she actually emailed me back a day after saying "thanks for your mail, I will respond tomorrow" ... that was over a week ago...

That really sucks about the menus! I really wanted to get started on all my stationary...

Wow...you ladies are so very thorough!

 

One question that we have been trying to find out - don't know if you ladies know about it or are experiencing the same issue...but through our travel agent & funjet vacations, children 12 and under stay free with 2 paid adults at the GBP...it seems that the special is only posted through the end of December of this year and it is not being applied to our booking in May of next year!  This is a problem!  That's a huge discount and I want to know if it will be an option come next year!!!

 

Have any of you heard of this??

Hey ladies! love the question posts!! It is so helpful! Thanks for sharing!

 

For clarification on the packages, here are the attachments that I was sent (Note that the FREE Package DOES exist) smile29.gif

 

 

 

Good evening Jenny:

Thank you for your below mail.  Please find that the free wedding package is a promotional package which caters to two to 16 persons.  It is not inclusive of legal & minister's  fees of USD400.00 + 16.5% taxes.  Please find that I have attached a copy of the package for your review.  

Kindly advise if you wish to move further with the promotional package or the sunshine package.  

Kind regards

 
Beverly Antoine

I didnt hear about this but it is very interesting... but we are flying with AirTransat - dont know if this makes a difference or not?! We have 1 kid going but it would be interesting to find out. I would say when I booked it was in effect so I plan for this promotion to be offered to me or Ill be looking for alternative flights...I guess it helps sometimes to be rude.

 

I had something similar with AirTransat...they were not going to offer us anything as a group which made me VERY angry as we have 42 people. I emailed them and said what can you do for us as SunWing does this and they emailed me stuff they will do....interesting eh! haha

Hmm...good idea!  My TA finally got back to us today and said that she is not getting any response from the resort as to if it is being extended into next year...so she has NOW (we have been waiting for an answer for 2 weeks...so nice she finally decided to pursue another option) emailed funjet vacations to see if they are offering it in 2011.  I think you would have run into the same problem that we did because our dates of travel are not until next year; the promotion only covered travel dates through December of this year.  But I will be sure to keep you updated on what I find out...It may be an offer that other companies will extend as well.

When i asked Beverly abuot the free wedding package she said that it was too late, and I've had my wedding booked since the spring, I think April we had it booked and our deposit down.  And now she's telling you that its okay? Ridiculous. 

 

Ugh, I've decided to give up planning anything else.  I'm just going to go with the flow and not think about details.  I'm not going to stress out, I want to have a good time.  Hopefully I won't have to make another decision until I'm there.  Though there is a part of me thats super worried she's messed up the booking and I'm going to get down there and there is not going to be a wedding!  That would BLOW!!!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
