We toured the Barcelo Maya Palace and the Gran Porto Real. The only thing we really liked about the Porto Real was it's location. Being able to walk out the door and be on 5th Ave is really cool. The lobby and rooms were unimpressive at the Real and the pool/ beach area seemed run down. The Royal across the street was very nice but that is a whole different price point. The Barcelo grounds are stunning. good luck!
  6. can someone please e mail me the menu for the Strawberry Package? I would really appreciate it. Thank you jboncosky@tmsupply.com
  7. Sandra, I would love to see the menu. I sent you an e mail. thanks

  9. when I toured the Palace there were two very nice deck areas overlooking the ocean that the cocktail hour would probably be held at. There are nice outdoor couches and tables with fires going. These areas are directly off the main lobby of the palace right above the restaurants. You can look down on the beach. They looked like a really cool place for a cocktail hour.

They should offer the price they told us when we put our date on hold. I toured the banquet rooms at the Palace and they are nice, just not my idea of a cool Mexican wedding. There was a wedding going on while we visited the resort and they had their reception in the large banquet room. They looked like they had a blast. The banquet rooms have no windows just like most rooms of the sort

I emailed Claudia awhile ago and she said that they are making an exception and will give us until the 2010 wedding packages come out, but she also said something about how it's usually five months from when you reserve the date. So does that mean that the itinerary is due when they come out with 2010 packages or will it be due 5 months AFTER the 2010 packages come out? I have sent her an email but it's been almost two weeks and there's no word from her, any help would be much appreciated!!! I too am dealing with Claudia. We have May 7th 2010 reserved. From what I understand you can hold the date without your resort and plane reservation up until 5 months prior to the wedding date. Obviously the sooner the better.

If I were you I would not mention anything and play dumb. Say the photographer is a guest of yours?

I can scan tomorrow and post it if you haven't found it by then. The WC's take forever to get back via e mail but they will eventually. We just returned from a site visit and the resort was awsome. We watched a wedding ceremony and we spoke to a family that had a wedding at the Palace the day before. They all used the word "perfect" in their desciption of their special night.

We would like to book our wedding for Jan. 21st 2010 at the Palace but have been told by our TA that we can't even get prices for 2010 yet, let alone set a date. Are you using a travel agent? Did you book directly with Barcelo? Thanks for your help! we called the WC and had them pencil in our date. They will not "guaruntee" that date until you book rooms at the resort. They are taking reservations for 2010 and I was able to get rates through my TA as well as directly through the Barcelo. Hope this helps
