We have always booked with either Expedia or Orbiz as they usually give a great discount for booking hotel and airfare together. If you are in the US, you may be able to negotiate a room rate with Barcelo and hold a block of rooms. It may be easier to get a travel agent to negotiate with them for that. We are going to be booking our next trip for April 2011 and have been watching rates on both Expedia and Orbiz. Orbiz has had the better discount. FYI, if you have an Entertainment book, Expedia has a coupon in there. :)

I need to book asap to confirm my wedding date but don't know if I should go straight to the hotel and book a flight separate or if I should book a package deal

Any help you can give would be great! Thanks girls :-)

I am extremely frustrated because I need to order invitations for my January 7, 2011 wedding ASAP and Barcelo is making it very hard for me to get the necessary information together to get this done.



There are 3 beach locations for receptions. One is called Coral Beach and it is in front of the Palace. There are palm trees there that they wrap in white lights. The 2nd is Palmeras Beach which is in front of the Colonial/Tropical. It is fairly open and it's in between lounge chairs, but good for large groups. The 3rd is Playa Azul which is at the far end of the resort in front of the Barcelo Maya Beach. There is an area covered with a thatched roof right on the beach and they set up your reception under that. I think I might have a few pictures, if you want me to email them to you just pm me your email address.

We chose Playa Azul for our beach reception....can't wait!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
