For any of you looking for videos/photos of the resort, I found this great YouTube channel that shows you the ceremony and reception areas. It is 3 years old and there have been some remodels at the resort since these were filmed, but they at least give you an idea of the locations.

This is a video of a wedding- I believe at the Captain Morgan beach location

 

This is a video from Barcelo regarding the wedding- although it does not show all of the locations the greatest

Does anyone have a list of the restaurants and bars at each hotel? Searching the website, they just provide the # of bars and the type of cuisine for each restaurant, not the name- from what I am seeing. If anyone could provide me a list, or a link to the information, that would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance :)

@@MissMeg If you Google Barcleo Maya Beach Resort Property Map, it will give you images of the resort and a listing of where things are.

Restaurants: the newly remodeled lobby/shopping between the Beach & Caribe hotel buildings: Strikers (sports bar with hot apps/snacks), Mexican Lindo (Spanish- great),  an Italian and Japanese - both good; and a buffet as well.  

 

For the restaurants between the Colonial & Tropical buildings: Capri (Italian - great), Santa Fe (Steakhouse - ok), Kyoto (Japanese - ok) and Marenostrum (Seafood - ok); of course there is a buffet for bkft, lunch & dinner. Don't miss the breakfast buffet, it is wonderful.

 

The 'grill' restaurants are near the pools/ocean and all serve buffet style for lunch.

 

I did not eat at the Palace, though I was told the French themed one was very good.

@@shadow26 - thank you, it was the new restaurants that were added with the renovation that I really needed.

 

@@cometgirl - thank you, I had a property map, but I couldn't find an updated map that reflected the new restaurants near Beach/Caribe.

For those with a spare 35 minutes... here is a link to the YouTube video I put together of my wedding day and full ceremony on 2/2/15

 

 

The pictures were taken around the Barceló Maya Tropical resort (front lobby and beach), the symbolic ceremony was at the Capital Morgan beach, and dinner was on the Capitan Morgan grill terrace.   Everything was fantastic!!!

 

@@MissMeg the map they give you onsite is still the old one too.

We were going to go with our resorts photography as we didn't want to pay the 500$ extra. however we found Octavios webpage though a link on this site, his SIX hour package plus the 500$ deposit and 10% off comes under what we were going to pay from ocean studio.  Looking over his photos we decided that he was the right choice for a photographer.  Octavio was very quick to respond with any questions/answers we had regarding his services.  We are getting married in TWO WEEKS! and can't wait to meet him and get the photos done.  We will let you all know how it goes when we return!

 

 

This is his website if you want more information

He has a promotion on right now for 10%!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
