For those of yo interested in the Barcelo property I woul dbe happy to do some 1st hand research for you. My fiance and I are going to be staying at the Barcelo Colonial Beach April 19th-26th. We are not getting married there (we are getting married in Los Cabos at Dreams 10/20/0cool.gif but rather just vacationing. If you want answers to what certain areas look like for wedding plans or info on restaurants please post your questions and I will try to search out answers as I am there relaxing:)

It seems that all of the receptions I've heard about have been in a banquet room, which I prefer not to have.

Any tidbit of information would be appreciated!

Thanks!!!
I was thinking about having a reception in Capitan Grill i think it's called. It's an open air buffet restaurant that is open for lunch but closed for dinner.
It's easier to dance on the floor then on the sand. (we're big on dancing) Then i changed my mind and now i'm putting a dance floor right on the beach (it costs extra). But i know a lot of girls that had their reception in it.. I'm totally with you on not having a reception in one of their banquet rooms. I think one of the girls on here- Margaret, had her reception in one of the open air restaurants.

Yes, I had my reception in one of the open air restaurants. There are lots of them, they are all Something Grill, and they are all open for lunch but not dinner. As a result, you can have your reception in the grill starting at 6.30 (but not earlier because they have to clean up from the daytime).

 

It was beautiful, they decorated it very nicely, with candles in bags all around the edge, and the centerpieces. I was planning on having it on the beach also, but then we decided that it would be nice to get away from the sand and potentially wind or elements. It was perfect, it was really windy but it was fine in the open air restaurant. I loved it. :) Just tell Ana that's what you want. I had never been to the Barcelo before my wedding, but I just knew that I didnt want it in a banquet hall, and it worked out brilliantly. :)

I picked the sea breeze package, but i told Lia ( my wedding coordinator there) that i wanted the reception in a grill, and she told me that i would have to switch to the under the stars package, which is a bit more $$$ , so now I am unsure what i will do. I really want it in the grill but I am just not sure if we can spend more with our budget! sad.gif

I am currently awaiting my travel agent to write me back with my group package price for these hotels. I'm so excited.

 

One question though: I heard that they don't allow outside photographers on site. What about if I brought my photographer from Canada down with me? She is giving me a great deal, I pay for her stay, she gives me free pictures.

if you book her as a guest, that should be no problem.
