OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread

Recommended Posts

@Dreamteam17  My travel agent was as shocked as I was about the prices, she told me to sit tight and sent an email over to the resort! It may not change anything but fingers crossed...my wedding package price jumped $850...I can see a small increase from year to year but this is crazy

Ok let me know what happens. I have forwarded the email I got from Linda in Aug asking why the change in prices. It's not just 100 dollar increase it's almost 600 bucks.....

Looking back to the beginning of this thread the 2014 prices are close to the ones she recently gave me. Maybe the $1090 was a complete error on their part. I guess we will find out.

@@CBraun is spam do not click link (its about male enhancement) lol

@@Dreamteam17, Those aren't the prices I got about a month ago. It listed the unforgettable at $1090 or $1240 for Don Pablo. When did you receive these prices? Can they change it after we have already been offered the original prices?

  

Also seems the wedding package prices have increased. Anyone have this problem ? Unforgettable package coba and tulum is

Legal $1840 symbolic $1665

Akumal

Legal 1990 symbolic 1815

We are thinking of switching to the sunshine now. Seems only Difference are minor things not wedding related except flowers on bridal table

Does everyone else have these same prices ?

The package I got for Akumal is $1815 for a symbolic wedding for November 2015. I know I thought it seemed a little high too. If I didn't want the mariachi's I would downgrade to sunshine. Does anyone know why the prices for Akumal and Sian Kaan are so much more? I'm planning on having the majority of my wedding over at Tulum anyways so I don't see why we have to pay more. We are already paying more for our stay. Do we get any extras like special decorations?? Lastly can you guys confirm that the package and any other costs are paid at the end of your stay? Also that there aren't any hidden taxes and fees?

Hey everyone,

 

Just wondering what you guys think the appropriate amount to tip is at the salon for bridal hair and makeup?

Let's say if all goes well like it will :), how much should I tip and should I do it individually or as one chunk to split amongst the salon ladies for:

 

1 Bride - Hair and Makeup

2 Bridesmaids - Hair and Makeup

2 Mothers - Hair and Makeup

 

The bill will be close to $800 ish I believe..

If it was me I would prob do 20-25 per hairstyle/makeup application. If your paying for the entire bill you could let them split it. Or of everyone is paying for their own they can tip individually after their service.

But really it's whatever you can afford. They over price for their services so I am sure $10/per style would be fine also especially if you are paying for it all

Ok so I heard back from the resort and I guess that price doesn't included the minister fee. That is an additional 800 in something making it that price.

Can someone please ask the resort for pictures of the new tulum beach location? I don't want to weaken my position by expressing an interest in a different location.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
