      Does anyone know how much the guest pass cost for Gran Bahia Principe resort?  I have been given one quote of $80 but another bride told me she was quoted $150 so I wanted to be sure because I have 2 guest that are not staying at the resort.

       

      Also, did anyone have to pay guest pass for DJ, photograpphers,etc?  I asked Chandlyn and all she said was let her know who for security but never answered my question about the cost of it or even if there was one.

      thanks. I really like both of them. the wedding band is a US jewellers called Gordon's. their stuff is really nice and very reasonably priced. my FI's ring is either Tungsten or Titanium - he hasn't finalized his decision yet, but Gordon's has a pretty good selection of both.

      my understanding is the guest pass is $75 per and yes, if your photographer is not the resort one, then you need to pay. I guess if you're using a DJ that isn't from the resort either then you would need a pass for them. Chandlyn told me that if they aren't using any hotel facilities like restaurants, you don't pay, but if you want your guests to eat with you, then I guess you need to pay for them.

            Thank you much ACW271011...As soon as I checked this, I finally got a response from Chandlyn.  Basically saying the same as you.  if they are there for a quick min (like the florists) then I don't need a pass...but I do need one for the photographer, etc because they are there long term.

             

            Thanks!

              I'm really surprised to hear this, because when I asked Chandlyn in March she advised that there are no vendor fees or guest passes required!  This must have been a more recent change!  I hate that you have to stay so on top of them!!!

                  That's awesome! I am looking into photographers now just trying to find someone who is within our budget! Are you going with his classic package? Aand are you going to do TTD session?
