Newbie - Grand Riviera/Sunset Princess vs. GBP

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, this is my first official post as a "Mrs-to-be"!! We had started talking about (and kinda planning, lol!) a DW a few months ago, but Jay actually proposed on Sunday night at my mom and step-dad's place!woot.gif

 

Now that we are officially engaged, we can really start to get into the planning. We have talked about a few resorts and were leaning towards the Gran Bahia Principe, but after doing a little more research we are now thinking one of the Princess hotels. I'm wondering if anyone has been married at the Princess and/or if anyone has been to both of these resorts that they could provide some input to help us decide. We are meeting with a travel agent either this Sat or next, but I thought I would ask here first since this site and you ladies have been a wealth of info for us so far!

Congratulations "Mrs-to-be" Igerry!! Planning a wedding is a very exciting time! I have been to both resorts and they are both great choices. The Gran Bahia Principe is a very large resort so lots of restaurants and bars for your to choose from (there are 3 different sections!). The Grand Sunset/Riviera Princess is also a large hotel, and it is newer so the rooms and amenities are more updated vs the Gran Bahia. If you end up booking the Grand Sunset/Riviera Princess, see if you are able to book/get an upgrade to the Laguana Villas (sooooo nice) which offers a private pool section, or even the Platinum suites, which is closer to the beach and there's a buffet restaurant right down stairs so not too far of a walk!

 

Good luck and we wish you all the best!

I stayed at the Princess hotel before.  The resort is really nice and big.  Lots of food options and there's nightly entertainment.  You don't have to get out of the resort.  I love the pools.  There's always a quiet spot of you want the privacy in the pool and there's a pool entertainment spot.  You wouldn't feel cramped on the pool at the all.  Beach is nice too.  I don't really have any complaints there.
