In Punta Cana, there is only one Gran Bahia. You can kind of think of it as being one resort divided into two...the left side and the right side. They are mirror images of each other. You have the gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana (offered from some travel companies such as Air Transat, Westjet vacations ect) and Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro (offered from Sunquest for example)
We went for 2 weeks from Nov 13-27. We travelled with our friends and family for the first week and then we stayed a 2nd week. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! You will be busy for the first few days, with finalizing details. It goes by so fast, so it was so nice staying a second week for some alone time with your new hubby, and enjoying your honeymoon
We as well wanted to have the feeling of a "real" wedding, with a reception and all. We certainly had that! The coordinators are so helpful and can help you stick within your budget. They gave us options for centerpieces which were gorgeous and not expensive, open bar or not. We had an open bar or we would have had a riot on our hands LOL, full menus, and the service at the reception was simply incredible! We had a few kids and babies, and the staff at our resto and the wedding coordinators entertained and played with the kids, and rocked the baby to sleep so our friends could enjoy themselves... above and beyond!
We as well had the DJ and he was great. We didn't want to have to worry about playing music ourselves, so for us it was well worth it, we even had the staff joining the party and dancing with us, because the music was so good )
I could go on and on, just wanted to give you an idea of what they offer. Again, if you have any questions at all, just ask away!!
Take good care
