About Ottawa1968

  1. Hi! I'm another 2011 Bride. We got engaged this past New Year's Eve and we'll be getting married March 5th, 2011. After months of working with the travel agent we just confirmed and booked our date. We've visited the Mayan Riviera twice before. The 1st time we stayed at the Bahia Principe Akumal and fell in love with the Mexico. So, when we got engaged we knew we wanted to go back there to get married. So this past March we booked another vacation to check out the resort. I'd done some research on the internet to find the resort that suited us best and decided on the Barcelo Maya Tropical. The resort was beautiful and we were really happy with our choice. I couldn't imagine booking a wedding there unless I visited it and I was so happy we did. The wedding co-ordinator met us and spent about 2 1/2 hrs with us. She took us all around the resort on a golf cart and showed us all the different areas we could choose for the ceremony and the reception. We decided on the Barcelo Palace Gazebo (if you're not staying at the Palace there is a charge to have the ceremony there) and for the reception we chose the Palmeras Grill. An open air restaurant just off the beach. Anyway, if you decide to do a pre-trip it's well worth it. Really sets your mind at ease. Couldn't be happier with our selection.

    Barcelo Maya Tropical Bride

    Hi Everyone! My fiance Steve and I just confirmed and booked our wedding at the Barcelo Maya Tropical for March 5th, 2011. We'll have lots to research over the next few months but I'm very excited to be getting married in Mexico. We stayed at the Barcelo this past March and loved it. Can't wait to get started with plans and read up on tips from other brides. Leanne
