  • Wedding: January 2010

We had our wedding at the Melia Caribe Tropical and it was a stunning location. Planning our wedding there was very easy and affordable (mind you, it was 5 years ago).

I’d recommend it anytime. We chose it for the perfect balance between luxury and price for the guests. Also, for the 14 restaurants they had and the fact that our package included golf and other activities.

It’s a resort open to children, but it was still quiet and the wedding area was private so we couldn’t see/hear uninvited people (we chose the gazebo instead of the beach because of the privacy it offered, and it’s also less noisy than the beach with the waves and wind. We were also protected from the heat and sun in our wedding attire.. I’d suggest it.)

  • Wedding: May 2015

I went to a wedding at the baha grand principe may 2013. It was awesome! Sorry this is all in a big chunk but I’m just on my phone.. Anyways.. They gave us the standard room options, or upgraded rooms with some special features. Pools were gorgeous with a swim up bar. Wedding was beautiful. took pictures of getting ready all morning. Had an afternoonish wedding. Took some group (I think almost 90 guests) pictures in the lobby which is also absolutely gorgeous with a lovely grand staircase. The photographer they used had some really creative techniques for their pictures. After that they did some bridal party shots around the resort while the guests relaxed. Then dinner in a big hall. Was pretty good. I think they had a decent amount of input into what was served. Then we moved to the beach for cake, speeches and partied ALLLLL night with a wicked cool dance floor set up. Was unreal! The next day we booked a catamaran for the whole group. Which was super cool too. As for the rest of the trip as a guest. I liked the resort a lot. I think I got good value for what I Paid for. There’s a disco which was usually a lot of fun. the staff were awesome and going with such a big group was funny to see them interact with us, always had stuff for us to do and play on the beach and at the pool. Like one day they did a sexiest man competition (our group of friends is really into fitness) and it was absolutely hilarious. The food was good, a couple different options of a la carte like French was really really nice. Italian, steak house and a beach one too. Buffet was nice. The layout was pretty good. Like I said a disco, have late night snack shack of fries, hamburger, hot dogs. There’s a sports bar, a casino, and nightly entertainment like singing competitions and stuff. I had a really great time. Would recomend it for sure! 🙂
