    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!

              Oh that sucks that the whole room situation was a nightmare - but I'm so glad that the wedding went well!

              Can't wait to hear more about it!

                  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!
