    I am booked to have my wedding there in November. Violetta the WC sometimes takes a little longer to respond to emails but she is really great and keeps to her word. I feel like their prices are comparable to Dreams resort and can do the same services if not more. Unfortunately, they do have more than one wedding a day on certain days (like my wedding day) but usually at different venues like the gazebo, or beach. I am now looking for a different place (restaurant) to have my Rehearsal Dinner at. Any ideas in close proximity? Walking distance from Barcelo?

    Happy Planning :)

      Hi guys,
      I am looking for any of the packages/wedding brochure information that Violeta may have provided to you in terms of planning your wedding. I also am waiting to book my wedding at this resort. I am emailed both the resort and violeta and have no response. I was hoping to get some information ahead of time to see if this is exactly what I am looking for.
      My email is shyerone@hotmail.com any documents/forwards would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance and congrats to you all!

        Hi-

        I am considering the Barcelo as well.  However, am also having a difficult time finding any info./pictures of weddings at the resort.  Have you been able to find out more?  If so, please share :) I would love some insight.

        Thank you!

          We worked with Violeta at first but decided that having our reception in a banquet hall was just not an option for us.  She is very cordial; however, the responsiveness was lacking for us.  (We are both in client service so our expectations are high).  The lack of pictures of everything was really a problem for us as well.  Considering that we are also not using the facilities for our wedding ceremony (San Jose Church), it just didn't make sense for us.

           

          Violeta is a new WC so I think in time she will have a better idea of what brides and grooms want.  

           

          Something to keep in mind for you guys.  You get a "free" wedding with a required number of guests so our reception is actually going to be our rehearsal dinner.  They are limited to about 25 persons but it works out perfect for us!

           

          Good luck to the Barcelo brides.

            Thanks for the insight.  I have emailed Violeta and am anxiously awaiting her response.  It has been a few days, but I do understand that I may have to be patient.

              I'm getting married at Barcelo Palace in Cabo San Jose del Cabo on November 15 of this year.  I hear good things about violeta but she does take waay too long to return calls/emails.  we're likely going to get married on the beach and will also have our dance down there (they will bring a dance floor to the beach and decorate the area w/ lights, etc.).  

              i'll report back my experiences!!

              Good luck to you all!

                hi there,

                My name is Tammy and I am also getting married at Barcelo Los Cabos in November - on November 10th. When are you getting married?

                I am writing because I was told by Violeta that they promised to do only 1 wedding a day... but then read your reviews that they don't sometimes! Wondering if you know more about this and what days they double-book?

                 

                Thank you so much for your help. Congratulations by the way :)

                  I am also getting married at Barcelo on November 10th - we are hoping to do a beach reception and dance as well! Just waiting to hear back from Violeta to finalize everything! How has your experience been so far? I am trying to lock down all the "extra" prices from Violeta right now - it seems that the cost can go way up and we are just trying to figure that all out!

                    Hi guys,

                    Just thought I would add my info and experience so far. I am getting married Feb 2, 2011 at the Barcelo los cabos.  So far violeta has been very helpful. Slow the respond to emails, but I called her about our contract and she was right on top of things.  I am interested in seeing pics/hearing about your expereince when you get back.  We have chosen the mint breeze package and have 40 guests booked so far. We have been told we can move the reception to the beach for $20 extra a person.  We are undecided as the costs are adding up. So I would love to hear how it turns out for you guys and what it looks like!   I have hired Suzane Morel to come in and do hair and makeup.  I have been told the day pass per person is $60 USD right now, so I thought I would add that in for you guys too!  Best of luck planning and CONGRATS!!!

                    :)

                    -Amanda

                      Hi Everyone


                      Im getting married at the Bacelo in just a month- Oct 13/2010!  Violeta started off being really great and responsive and now she is taking weeks to get back to me with so many big things still undecided.  We have 120 guests coming and Im getting a little stressed at her time to get back to me.  Our weding is at the Gazebo and the reception is in the banquet hall due to our larger numbers.  She is giving me ideas for centerpeices that are coming to $105/each!!!  Ouch!!

                       

                      msamanada- how much does  Suzane Morel charge for hair?  I have 6 bridesmaids that need their hair done and Violeta has still not got back to me on if the in house salon can accomodadte everyone?

                       

                      Thank you and good luck planning ladies :)
