We finally decided on our resort after doing a site visit at the Barcelo Maya Colonial. All the negative reviews about this resort went right out the window! This resort is absolutely breathtaking and the food is delicious. I had an opportunity to talk to about 5 different couples who had their wedding while we were there. The only advice we seemed to get was to BE PATIENT with the wedding planners. After witnessing how many weddings they take care of a day, I can see how busy they really are.
It was quite windy while we were there and I can see how a beach reception would be very frustrating with everything flying around. That is something i wouldn't recommend. We took a look at the Grills and i fell in love with the Captain Morgan grill because of the outside terrace. We walked by just as they were setting up for a wedding and everything looked amazing!
