Gran Bahia Principe Tulum - Riviera Maya, Mexico

Recommended Posts

Hola !


Getting married at  Gran Bahia Principe Tulum resort in April 2012! SO excited!

We are debating on getting married on the beach (on the sand) or at the Gazebo.

Reception is at 4pm and we have 46 guests.


What are your opinions on both locations? One better than the other?

How is the view from the Gazebo and could it seat 46 guests at the Gazebo (I saw pictures and the area looks small).


Thanks !!!

The gazebo at Tulum is really pretty, however it is secluded and not directly in view of the beach/ocean. Personally if I'm going all the way to Mexico for my wedding, I would much rather get married on the beach location! Sent from my iPhone 4 using Tapatalk

By secluded I should clarify, it's RIGHT on the walking path by the Mexican restaurant, and rooms. It is NOT private to your party at all. I meant it is blocked from view of the beach by trees and such. Sent from my iPhone 4 using Tapatalk

I just got back, and I took pictures for you!


This is the view from the path that leads to the Tequila restaurant.  It leads to the weddings sites first.  On the left, the gazebo.  On the right, you can see the beach site.  yes, they are THAT close to each other.

This is the view that your guests will have in their chairs of the gazebo, I literally pretended to sit in approx the fourth row and took a picture.  Notice, you can't see the sea:



This is your guests view from the beach location:

Hey  Trisha .thanks for the pics! I think the beach is definitely the spot ! so beautiful and natural !!


Emily, Congratulations...my date is April 5th...April is coming soon! 

In terms of  any tips I guess at this point the best thing is to make sure you have mostly everything settled with  your coordinator (mine is Jazmin and she is great-we work really well together through email).


I suggest you get your guest list and seating arrangements to her more than a month in advance at least.

Also make sure to book your hair appointments at the salon. You coordinator can give you the details.


Since you are  a busy mom just try not to stress too much.The coordinators are great and just keep in touch with them. They'll let you know what your missing.


Congrats !

Hi I get married 24th April 2013 at the gazebo! I'm needing some help with what documents are required for the wedding as I'm getting mixed info at the moment. Me and my fiancée and both from the uk and not adopted, my wedding co ordinate has said the birth certificate translating a Spanish and apostilled is only required for the bride yet thomas cook and the translation company have said its required for both bride and groom. Can anybody confirm please? thanks:confused:j

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
