Recommended Posts

Hi sorry i know its been awhile since you posted but im getting married at the barcelo maya beach resort in november 2013 and we picked the strawberry passion package. it includes the reception on the beach for 3 hours and we did hire Mannia cancun. Im just wondering what you and your guests did after the reception since its only 3 hours?! our starts at 5:30 and will end at 8:30 but some of my guests will be under 18 so they cant go to the disco.

Hi Stephshaw26, have you been on the big Barcelo topic forum, its got tons of recent information in case you haven't been there you should definitely check it out, I think it may be called the Barcelo Palace but it is all in regards to the Barcelo and the packages there! 

 

We had our reception on the beach start at 5:30 as well and this is what we did: Extended the reception by 3 hours (two initially and then when it was just 15 minutes left we extended it another hour because it was so much fun). The cost to extend the reception is $12 per person (drinking alcohol) per hour.

 

Our reception went in this order - first dance, then speeches and then dinner - The speeches and dinner could take up a good portion of your 3 hours, so perhaps consider extending your reception if even by just a little bit if you think your guests are going to be giving long speeches. We had two people under 18 (one 4 and one 15) so they obviously couldn't come to the disco but anyone who wanted to continue to party carried on to the disco as it was finally open when our beach reception was done. I would say only about half the guests went to the disco, anyway, the rest of them were pooped/had drank too much already and went home to bed.

I am too getting married in November of 2013!! I am looking into this resort and I have not heard from anyone yet but i know that the Grand Palladium has their WC run ragged and i will not be going there. We have kids from 1-17 age and i want to know if this will be functional for all ages? We also have a budget of $10 for us and $1500. per guest. Is this feasible?  We want a Mayan Ceremony non legal.

This resort is friendly for all ages with lots of things for kids to do, kids club and kids show at night with several very large kiddie play areas as well.

 

Not sure where you are coming from or for how long you would stay or what you want the price to include so if you provide more details it would be easier to say if this resort falls in your price range. We had our wedding Nov 28 2012 and were coming from Canada and our prices all inclusive for one week at the Colonial from Calgary was $1483, from Toronto $1385, and for the Palace from Calgary it was $1719 and from Toronto was  something in the $1600's. Then you also must add in the wedding package price, which there are some options to choose from.

Thanks for the post. I'm coming from Edmonton, most are. I found the Palladium WC not on the same page and one is rude the other is confused. I'm not picky I just wanted an answer. I don't want to go somewhere they feel they have to email me separately and they both say different things and dates! 

It comes down to Barcelo and Iberostar. We have lots of kids coming so i want it to be fun for them as well.

Who is interested in sharing a photographer and saving money?? 

 

Our wedding date is June 28th, 2014 at the Barcelo Maya Palace.  We are thinking of flying out a photographer from Los Angeles, Ca. 

 

Let me know if you're interested. My photographers team does an amazing job with great prices. 

 

Message me. 

 

Thanks.
