Barceló Maya Colonial Beach

Recommended Posts

TrishB12,

YES you need to book the dinner on the beach in order to have your dinner in one of the outside grills. This is what we did and it was SO worth it. It was nice because we will still kind-of outside up not sitting on the sand! I am not sure about the pool thing it was not given to us as an option... I am not sure you would want this it pool stays busy for a while even after the sun goes down and many people in the pool have had a few drinks!

 

We also did not purchased travel insurance. We thought about it BUT we decided we would go even if something came up. We did have a guest that was 7+ month pregnant and I know they got it...

Smartinez, perfect thank you so much for the information!

Also I was wondering if anyone booked the DJ for the few hours, if so, was it worth it? Has anyone just hooked up an ipod to their sound system? My fiance and I are wondering what to do about the music because with an ipod you have less options for music but the dj is quite expensive. Is the sound system that you can hook up your ipod to good quality? Or should we just pay the extra to get the dj?

We were in the outside grill and we did an ipod and even a CD. The sound system was good quality. I thought that worked best because by the time we had are 5 course meal there really was not much time to dance or enjoy a DJ. I had also heard from a bride before my wedding in Oct that they did do the DJ and it was not really what they wanted.... he did not do much. We did have the mariachi band come through and our guest really like this and we got some great pictures!

Is anyone or have any past brides done a welcome dinner at the Barcelo? Do you know if you have to book that in advance and the locations that are available to have a welcome dinner at?

Smartinez, alright that is good news! I'm glad the ipod worked out because that will save some money for sure. It's really too bad that those quotes are so expensive, that is a bummer.

 

My fiance and I met with a wedding coordinator/travel agent and she seems really helpful. She said that she would deal with the WCs from the resort, she knows a lot of people down there and has tons of connecttions, she would handle all the guests questions and concerns. But she costs $1500. I was wondering if anyone has experienced working with an outside coordinator to handle all the small details or if I could just do it myself? While I'm in the planning process I don't want it to take three weeks to get replies from the Barcelo WC's, so I'm wondering if it's worth it to pay the extra $1500 for a WC from Vancouver? Anyone's thoughts?

Hey there, I'm also planning a wedding at maya for early 2010, can i ask if $1790CAN is a decent rate per person? I'm just starting to do my research...seems high but the hotel looks amazing.

asara...that sounds reasonable to me as our guests are paying approx. $1766.00 and that's for this February. It will also be Canadian Reading week so it's expected to be a bit high as well.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
