    I am new to this website and this is my first post. I am planning on getting married April 2009 in /near Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We have narrowed down our resort choices to the Riu Palace Mexico and Barcelo Maya Colonial. Any suggestions or comments that would help us make our final decision would be greatly appreciated??

                I had a friend who got married at Riu Palace and the pics were beautiful She said it was easy, the wedding planner was great and it all went smoothly. There are girls on here who went to Barcelo and loved it as well- they have great beaches but it is further south. It probably depends on how much you want to spend and where you want to be. Good luck! Either way, it will be great!

                    Don't know much about Barcelo Maya Colonial but the Riu Palace Riviera Maya is/was AMAZING. I was there just last month...Great staff, great food.

                      Hi, I'm getting married at the Barcelo Colonial in February. So far, there have been a few glitches, but that is because of our carrier, not the resort itself. I would totally recommend the Barcelo, just because it is a bit more quiet and if you decide to go Prestige, you get more things. If you have any questions at all, just pm me.
