Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica

Recommended Posts

I am getting married there 09/02/11 and we booked through Easy Escapes Travel.  Our agent has been extremely helpful and her suppliers offer comp rooms as well as a best price guarantee.  This means if the price ever goes down on another supplierâ€s website they will lower your price.  We have put down a deposit to hold rooms for our wedding party until the first of the year which is the deadline for deposits.  And the deposits are $125 per room.

I'm getting married there in August 2011 but am having trouble findind a TA that will actually give us a good price and not screw us over!! it's happened 2 times now... they don't call us back for weeks so we backed out and went to another one who we gave a deposit to and said go ahead, everything was go to go and now that we have our invites out with info on them she comes back to tell us that the "tour operator" doesn't have any more rooms to give out in AUGUST!?!?!

I was hoping to get some information from other gran bahia brides. I went too book my trip and wedding and my travel agent said for me to buy the sunhine package I have to have 10 people in my group book with me. Most of my family is booking later or last minute since they don't have a lot of money. Can me and my fiance book us two and still buy the sunshine package with out having any one book with us? I left the office last night almost in tears because I don't want to make my family pay more then they have too PLEASE HELP ME

 

I honestly thought DTW were easier and my agent seems to be not listening to me

FleetMac - I don't think it's a big deal which wedding package you go with or how many people are going with you...  I think the bigger issue that the TA is talking about is that most tour providers require a min of 10 people to provide group rates for the trip.  We booked through a TA and our tour provider is Air Canada Vacations.  They gave us a price, but it was dependant on at least 10 others booking...  But, I would think that you should be able to just book for you and FI, and forgo the group rates if you don't think others will book by the cut-off date.  Then they can all just book later at the same resort provided there is room there?  I would talk to your travel agent again to clarify, cause I really don't think it matters with the resort how many people are attending your wedding and which wedding package you choose.

So I booked my wedding date directly with Chandlyn, I didn't need a deposit or anything I got a confirmation email too. I haven't even booked my rooms yet I asked her if I needed a credit card deposit and she said no I don't have to pay tillthree months before.

hi everyone, I am brand new to the site and it seems already that there is a lot of good information. I am also planning a wedding at gran bahia principe in Jamaica in Nov 2011.  I want to have the ceremony at the gazebo, but I also wanted to see if I could have the reception outdoor. My problem is that I have not been able to get any pictures from the resort as to what that setup would look like. Does anyone have any wedding pictures that they can share for this resort ? even pictures of the reception indoor would help as well.  The resort also told me that it would cost $2000 to block off the entire restaurant to have a private reception. Please help ? thanks !
