I am thinking of getting married at the Grand Bahia Principe Tulum and wanted to get any tips or ideas from anyone who may know anything. Of course my partner Dayna will decide with me but I will do the leg work.
We need a place where kids are allowed, not a party place but still fun and Grand Bahia Principe Tulum seems to have it all. The place looks great and the feedback is good, not a fan of the distance from the airport but not a big deal. We are getting married in May 2014 so I am looking at booking now. We will have a bilingual wedding as my family (and I) is French-Canadian and Dayna's is English-Canadian so I have to keep that in mind.
I would appreciate any help, keep in mind I am a guy, lol, so what might seem normal to most is not natural to 'us'.
Thanks and looking forward to it.
Do not fret my friend, you are not the only to-be-husband planning a destination wedding! The Gran Bahia Principe is a great hotel! Either the Tulum or the Akumal section, no matter which section you stay at you basically have access to all the facilities at the others. The Coba section is nice too however its just at the back of the resort and a further walk to the beach.
If you are traveling from a Canadian gateway, Transat Holidays offers the Royal Golden section at the Akumal, which is a section that has been exclusively blocked off for guests that book with that particular wholesaler. If you are looking for May 2014 rates, they may not be available quite yet, not until May 2013.
The only thing, like you have mentioned, it is a bit further from the airport, about 1.5 hours. But the hotel seems like what you are looking for, 4.5* rating, clean, good food, good service, family friendly, fun and an all around good hotel.
The Grand Palladium hotels are good too if you want to check them out.
You can always direct PM me if you would like more details on hotels and pricing.
Good luck to you Pierre!
