So I need to vent real quick..... I was at the mall tonight buying jewelry and another bride to be was next to me. We started talking about our weddings and it just so happens she's getting married at the Riu in Mexico. When I told her we were getting married at the Barcelo she went off on how she did a site visit and listed 100 things she hated about it. Mind you I have never been and our wedding is in 3 weeks. My first thought was how ignorant can a person be and now I'm nervous since I have never been there. She said the beach, food ,reception areas and so on were terrible! She also said the palmares grill is way too big for a wedding of 46 people after I said that's where we decided. Someone give me some reassurance!
I cannot believe that! I was just there last week and it was gorgeous!! The whole resort was lovely. Victoria, the wedding planer, was amazing as well. You have absolutely nothing to worry about. My fiancé has stayed there before and loved it. The rooms are also really nice. The beaches are outstanding! The whole feel of the resort was amazing. It is a stunning plCe for a wedding.
I have tons of oictures of the grill if you would like some. It is large but Victoria told me they don't use the entire thing for the receptions. It has very high ceilings and is wonderful. I'm getting married at the playa sol and the reception on the palmeras beach and the grill is our back up. And I'm very happy with it. Please please please do not worry! I'm so angry for you! This woman knows nothing and should be ashamed of herself for being so rude to you.
You should be nothing but excited! Please do not worry! Send me your email address and I will send you the pictures. They will out your mind at ease.
