Barcelo Maya Palace Brides
Posted 05 December 2008 - 09:06 PM
I know this is super late! But alas... I am back from our wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace!
I didnt have the best experience, but it was mostly due to Dreams Tulum.
The Barcelo Maya Palace, is a beautiful resort! Huge! The beach is amazing, kind of rocky, but once your out in the water! its gorgeous!
If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask...
One thing I want to share! the resort photographer and videographer! They did a GREAT job! better than I thought! We flew our photographer down with us,but we still used the in house photographer! They did a great job!

If we were just dealing with Barcelo. And originaly booked our wedding there, I know it would have been a different story! Dreams dropped the ball BIG TIME!!! They sent us to a resort that couldnt and didnt want to deal with us. It was terrible.
You Barcelo brides are going to be treated great though! If you've booked there! You'll be happy! Its a great resort! And as mentioned before... I really liked the in house photographer and videographer!
We ended up having our reception on the rooftop terrace. Not a usual spot for receptions... They might make an exception though... As for the food. We chose the surf'n turf.
Here are pics of our reception...
Our table set up. Everything you see on the table )besides the center pieces were brought by DH and I
food... Smoked salmon
the surf'n turf, the lobster tail is HUGE!
Our wedding cake

To all the other girls, I HATED when people on here would say "once you get there the WC will kick in to gear so dont worry about it now". So I dont want to say that, but I will say that when I met Gabriella she is very competant, but also very busy. She had it more together than my WC from Dreams and she arranged for small things that I never had even thought of. I hope that is a little reassuring.

Hmmm... Our photographer or there's I think I probably still would have brought Kevin! He did a great job too! He photo-shopped all pics and played with the colors. The in house photographer kept things limited. Also... We got to do our Trash the Dress with our photographer. Which was sooooo worth it! B/c we got some really amazing shots!
I dont think I would have changed anything. At one point we had three photographers on us, plus the videographer. Plus, they all got different angles. Which we liked.
(the pics I posted above, are just me photographing... not pro's...)
