Barceló Maya Colonial Beach

Recommended Posts

Barbo,

You have to do one of the packages that will let you eat outside EVEN if you want to eat at one of the grills. We did the ocean scents and we were happy with this choice. I also did not want to be in an inside room. We did not do anything when we got home so we were ok with spend more money on are guest down in Mexico. I did post some pictures somewhere on this link.

Happy planning.

Let me know if you have more questions smile29.gif

I agree with IndianBride for the best beach. However, the beaches are all beside each other so people staying at all of the Barcelos' are all over the different beaches. Check out my reviews in wedding reviews for the Colonial, plus my thread on the hints and tips.

I was just wondering if anyone knows about confirming your wedding date for 2010. Right now my fiance and I have May 3, 2010 on hold but need to send in our flight/accommodation itinerary in order to CONFIRM the date. I emailed Claudia awhile ago and she said that they are making an exception and will give us until the 2010 wedding packages come out, but she also said something about how it's usually five months from when you reserve the date. So does that mean that the itinerary is due when they come out with 2010 packages or will it be due 5 months AFTER the 2010 packages come out?

 

I have sent her an email but it's been almost two weeks and there's no word from her, any help would be much appreciated!!!

Go to Xe-hal. We went there for a day and we could have gone for more. It has amazing snorkelling, it is stunning, and we absolutely loved the view of everything. The park is huge so you can do almost anything there. We suggest going early in the day, we arrived at 8:30 a.m. right when it opened and there was hardly anyone else there for like 2 hours. It was great.

im curious, how easy is it to negotiate the packages and prices? we were hoping to be able to change a few things and possibly negotiate the rate per person if we do one of the beach ceremonies and a few other things.

thanks :)

Hello Barcelo Colonial brides!!

I am wondering if you would be able to help me out... my FI and I originally fell in love with the Barcelo Maya Palace, but the prices came back pretty high... so I started to look around but really nothing else struck my attention like the Barcelo did.. so I looked into the other Barcelo's. I think the Colonial is very nice, but I need some help making my mind up. (And some reasons to give my FI for why we should choose this instead of the Palace lol)

Can you tell me what made you choose the Barcelo Colonial over the Palace? Was it the price? Or something else?

Does anyone know if there's any other options for the ceremony other than the beach? (My dad is in a wheelchair so the gazebo at the Palace was what grabbed our attention).

Also, I can't seem to find many good photos of the Colonial, do any of you have any good photos you wouldn't mind sharing?

Thanks so much!

Cara

Hey Cara

My FI fell in the love with the Palace also, but after doing a lot of research, we ended booking at the Colonial (price-wise, it was more in our price range). I've read that MANY people were more than happy with the Colonial/Tropical and that it was more fun. Apparently the Palace can be a tad on the stuffy side. I definitely recommend checking out UNOFFICIAL BARCELO MAYA | Your unofficial guide to Beach | Caribe | Tropical | Colonial | Palace this site has all the information you need about the Barcelo and their forum has tonnes of questions regarding which one to stay at. Also keep in mind that the beach in front of the Beach/Caribe is supposed to be the best - may be important to you, I know it is to me!
As for wedding locations, I'm not 100% sure what else they have, but I'm sure you can find it on the unofficial site.
Anyway, I hope that helps..if I made any sense as to why we chose Colonial!
Also check out tripadvisor for traveler's photos - I find those to be the best ones!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
