        Thanks for the review BethBride1, I'm excited to see all the pictures, and I think we will definitely be splurging for the outdoor reception because that was my dream in the beginning anyway!

          Hmm so strange. That's the exact email response Claudia gave me. I am making a trip down in January, so maybe when I meet my WC in person they'll give me the option of the mariachi?

          It sounds like the resort is beautiful and you had a great trip. I can't wait to see all of your photos!

                Thanks Bethbride1!
                I can't wait to see pictures! If you can't post them on here for some reason do you think you can email them to a couple of us? I would love to see pictures of the reception on the beach. We want to get married by the beach/pool side and decided to make the $1000 splurg. Is the reception right on the beach or the pool area? I want it outside with view of ocean but not right on the sand.

                The boys are wearing dress shorts so I don't even think they would be a allowed in the banquet hall......does anyone know if long pants are a must in the hall?

                    Thanks BethBride for your review! It was great!
                    As a side note...does anyone that is working with a travel agent get some perks for having guests book through them? I feel like my TA is not doing anything for me...except getting a commission! Am I wrong to feel like I should at least be getting some of my stay subsidized if I am guaranteeing 10-15 rooms?

                      Out of curiosity, was anyone offered any incentives or freebies through Barcelo and/or your TA? I just spoke with one TA (I am thinking about jumping ship to another TA) and he said that the freebies (tours or free stays/upgrades for the bride) are contingent on what is being offered by Barcelo.

                      Any one hear the same or different?
