The service was EXCELLENT! I swear at our reception, our plates weren't empty for 4 seconds and they had them cleared away. Our drinks were always full. Everyone was smiling and so friendly!

I just got back this morning, and everything was PERFECT!!! (well, not everything, but everything wedding related was!).

 

I will write a full review of the Barcelo Maya, but my initial takeaway is: big, beautiful resort, huge huge huge, the wedding and wedding coordinators were fantastic,the wedding was perfect in every way. The only negative is that everything to do with the front desk and room reservations was a bit of a nightmare... People waiting an hour or two to check in, our guests all being in the same hotel, but suddenly being told to move to other hotels, half the guests being changed to another hotel half way through... But in general, other than the room problems, and once people were all checked in, everyone had a great time, and the whole thing was fantastic!!!!! Ugh, so miserable to be home!

 

I don't have any pics yet, but will send when I do!

Hi,

 

Does anyone know the current situation with photography at this resort?

 

Is there a fee... or a certain amount of days they must stay?

 

Honesty I fell in love with Matt Adcock's photography and it has basically inspired my whole idea for a destination wedding. I would love more than anything for him, his wife, or his associate to capture my day. I just don't know if it will be possible at the Barcelo?

I had no problems at all. They say absolutely NO outside photographers, but I asked my wedding coordinator if one of my guests could be my photographer (wasn't a guest at all, I hired Elizabeth Medina, who was fantastic), and they said so long as she stayed at the resort for 1 night, it was acceptable. I printed out that email just incase for confirmation, but never needed it. Nobody ever asked any questions, and honestly, nobody cared or saw/said anything. It was totally fine. And well well worth it!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
