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.
Let me know if you have more questions

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!

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!
