Riu Palace vs. Gran Bahia Principe?? Suggestions Please! :)

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!


My fiance and I recently got engaged and are planning a wedding for November 2011.  We've done a bit of research and have narrowed down our top resort picks to either:

a) Riu Palace Mexico

B) Riu Palace Riviera Maya

c) Gran Bahia Principe Tulum, or

d) Gran Bahia Principe Akumal


Sooo, basically Riu Palace vs. Gran Bahia Principle.


Are there any brides out there with experience at any of the above locations, and if so, are there any suggestions you can provide??  Your help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Welcome, and congratulations.... Im a Riu Palace Riviera Maya bride-to-be, May 2011...

So with my biased opinion i say go with RPRM :-)


Why dont you do a list of pro/cons with each resort, etc and try to narrow it down that way.... That was the hardest part for us, choosing the resort, after about 15 months of short listing, we finally found a resort we BOTH loved..... :-) Where as before FI liked bits and i liked bits but never loved the same bits, if that makes sense, we even changed country a few times, Staring with Mexico, then Aruba, then Jamaica then back to good old Mexico... I think we both new in our hearts we wanted Mexico but were so frustrated at looking for the perfect place we decided to change country!!!! Then one day we had Jamaica and were nearly ready to book and we both were like "i dont think i wana marry in Jamaica... lets go to Mexico..." Haha :-) So back to the drawing board in Mexico, and along came the RPRM and WHAM!!!! we just knew it was the place x

Sorry im not much help at all..... but yes maybe a list from each resort to see what stands out, whats important etc


Good Luck, once again, sorry i havent been much help xox

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
