One tip, if you have not been in touch with them, CALL THEM to book your wedding day 011 52 984 875 15 00 (try to get to the front desk, then ask for the wedding coordinators, we got bumped around about 4 times til we got there) ... I was told you had to request your wedding date and time by email, but when I tried I never heard back, so I had to call. I heard that they are not great when you try to email them, but when you get there everything goes like clockwork and the flowers, spa, tables, chairs etc are very nice. (you will need to know what wedding package you want when you call/email to book your date and time - I got the document with the options from Erika at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Let us know if you book there. If anyone has other suggestions/recommendations, please let me know )

I have shot a lot of Weddings there (And once more next week). What best to give you an idea than have a look at a photo-gallery: Barcelo Maya Weddings
An Advice? The best moment for the ceremony is 1h before the sunset. (around 4:30pm on November). Earlier is to warm and you will have the best light for the portrait session just after the ceremony.

I'm a Barcelo Palace Bride myself. I know quite a bit about the resort and weddings there and I've also gone down for a site visit last April so let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like to know. There's a ton of information on the forum about the Barcelo Resorts so I would suggest you do some searches to help you with your decision. Here's one thread that I find extremely helpful. Just a warning that it is pretty LONG, but read through it and I'm pretty sure it'll have the answer to about 95% of your questions:
Here is another website that you should also check out:
UNOFFICIAL BARCELO MAYA | Unofficial guide to Beach | Caribe | Tropical | Colonial | Palace
They have information, photos as well as a discussion board/forum that's really helpful (the forum has a section dedicated to weddings at the Barcelo).
Hope this helps!

I am getting married at Barcelo colonial July 8th!
Do you know what live music they offer? I know mariachi, but what else is there? Do you know the prices? Have you heard much about bringing an ipod to play your own music at the ceremony? Is the sound good? and does it limit your ceremony site if you want to play your own music? I really envisioned the white sand and blue water in the backroung... Which might be tricky if we need electrical, that's why i'm thinking live...
Thanks for any help you can give!

I am a newbie here, and am looking into the Barcelo Palace for April 2011 - I love the idea of the gazebo! We might have a large-ish wedding (50-60 guests). I am concerned that they wouldn't all fit in the gazebo - anyone know what the max capacity is for this ceremony venue?
