    We had the mint breeze package so I think the food choices are a little different, but we chose caesar salad, minestrone soup, beef tenderloin (came with potatoes and veggies), and carmel spring roll for dessert.


    Everything was very good and presented well. Here is a picture of the caesar salad (sorry bad pic). Everyone raved of the salad and the desort. The beef was cooked perfectly. I really don't think you can go wrong with anything you chose but I would recommend picking more generic items that most would like.

      Good advice, mrsnova - thx for sharing :) food choices are such a personal preference, the generic option is a good one for the best overall enjoyment :)

          We considered the dance floor but after considering cost and asking around on here about people's opinion on it we went with dancing on the sand as everyone had said such great things about it! Some people kicked off their shoes, some didn't, but all had an amazing time. They completely rake and made sure the sand is soft with no rocks or anything.

          Here are our playlists:

          thanks for sharing!

            Hello everyone!! I'm so excited I think I finally figured out that I for sure want my wedding to be at Barcelo Maya. I have been trying to get a hold of the wedding coordinator at the resort to see if the date I'm wanting is available and the extra pricing options but I can't find a direct email address and have emailed the resort and basic Barcelo wedding email several times with no response form the wedding coordinator. I want to get everything going to help out my guests so they'll have extra time to save up and plan. If anyone can provide me with an email address of the wedding coordinator at Barcelo maya that would be great! I can't wait to get everything figured out, this seems like it would be the perfect resort. Thank you!

                Hello Everyone-


                Well our wedding has come and gone as of March 22, 2013. :( We had an amazing time! Our wedding at Barceló Maya Palace Deluxe was awesome! Victoria was our wedding coordinator and she really did a get job! I have a tone of pictures. If anyone has any question about their upcoming wedding I will be more than happy to answer them. We had our ceremony at the Gazebo (5:00) and the reception was at the Palamas Grill (7:00). I did get my hair & make up done at the spa.

                  Hey, thanks for your response!! How long ago was that!? And who is your wedding coordinator?? I have Xhail, and she's told me nothing about the palapa being down or up, so I'm starting to get a little worried!!
