Hello!

 

I'm thinking about having my DW at the Barcelo Maya Palace? Has anyone had their DW there? What advice can you give? And what are the pros and cons of having my wedding there?

 

Also, do you think Grand Riveria Princess or Moon Palace are better resorts for DW?

 

Thanks

Hi Kamerrence,

I was at the Barcelo Maya Palace in June 2008. I did not get married there but it was a beautiful resort! We had an amazing time! My FI and I actually got engaged there! If your looking for a small resort it definatly is not. The beach is spectacular! I am sure a wedding there would be beautiful. Good luck!

Thanks for responding, JodJ! I think I will move forward with a wedding there. I have a question for you: There is a gazebo near the grill, if I decided to get married at the gazebo do you think it would be private? Based on its location.

 

Let me know,

Hello Kamerrence,

We are also planning our wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace. I have seen a few weddings there and they look absolutely beautiful. I have heard that the gazebo location isn't the most private spot to have a wedding, however I have seen some photos of weddings there, and they still look wonderful. We are planning our wedding for the gazebo location. If we decide against it, we can always change our minds when we're there and meet with the wedding coordinator. There is a thread in this forum also strictly for Barcelo Maya Palace brides. You should check it out. :) Hope that helps a bit.

The gazebo is right in the middle of the resort (not really private). I am not sure what 'the grill' is.... one of the restaurants? I am not sure if it is near there. It is close to a few of the restaurants and the buffets. I think I have a picture of it somewhere if you would like to see it. Let me Know!

Hi!

 

DH and I actually recently got married at the Barcelo Maya Palace. In Nov. We too got married in the Gazebo. Which is NOT private!!! In the beginning I wasn't too keen on it. But it worked out so beautifully. I look at our pro pics and I think the location and its stunning. Most ppl give you privacy though... They stare for like two min. and then keep walking. Besides... I know from my experience... I wasn't even paying ANY attention to the ppl walking around or looking. All that mattered was DH! <3 It was like it was just the two of us up there. It was so beautiful!!!

 

Best of luck and Happy planning!!!! :)

Thanks Dreamstbride and CaraW!!! Your advice HELPS! My Fi and I have decided on a beach wedding at Barcelo. This should be more private. Also Dreamstbride, your pics are breathtaking! Who was your photographer? I notice in the Barcelo's wedding packages a photographer isnt provided. So will the hotel suggest photographers for you? Also did you do any tours outside the hotel? My Fi wants to see the Mayan temples. Let me know, and CaraW keep me posted on your plans!! This is SO exciting!

Does anyone know if the beach weddings at the Barcelo Tropical are nice? Are there people everywhere or are they semi private?

Can anyone tell me about the Sea Breeze package?

thanks,

Tamasin

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
