Air transat wedding package

Recommended Posts

Hey!

 

I have a big question for you everybody! wacko.gif I want to book my wedding package with air transat but I'm not able to choose the hotel. Here is the choice of hotel :

  • Barceló Maya Colonial Beach Prestige Class
  • Barceló Maya Palace Prestige Class
  • Grand Sirenis Mayan Beach
  • Occidental Grand Xcaret Preference Club½
  • Ocean Turquesa½

Which hotel is the best quality, the best price, the best food, etc.? I need your opinion!

 

Thanks,

Christina.

Even if I dont work inside all inclusive hotels, I dont like to have a such private event in front of naking people...I can say that Barcelo is a good quality hotel for food and service, nice also Occidental , but I am not sure if it has a great beach

Hi there,

 

I am a travel agent so I know these hotels really well. My personal opinion would be one of the Barcelo's or the Ocean Turquesa. It is all a matter of if you are looking for a hotel with a beach as well.

 

-The occidental literally has NO beach. It has a tiny man made "pond" in front of the hotel. The hotel itself is really nice and is pretty much located on a national park called Xcaret.

 

- And same goes for the Grand Sirenis...No beach...well it does have a beach but it is quite murky and has a lot of seaweed since it is in a peninsula.

 

I'm kind of biased since i'm a beach girl :) but the Barcelos (Palace just being a bit newer and a real 5 star) would be my first choice

 

 

Hope that helps a bit Christina

Good luck!!

Thanks for your answer bride to be!

Finally, I totally change our plan! Be careful, because they change alllllllll the air transat package. Contact air transat because i'm not sure if they still have the package with Xcaret for 2011.

 

My wedding is April 2011.

I heard through the travel agent grapevine that MANY of these resorts are not going to be packaging with Air Transat in 2011. The reason is Air Transat wasn't happy with the wedding services from some of these resorts. I'm going with the Grand Sirenis in March 2011 -- only because they are one of the resorts that are still packaging and my travel agent MIL has sent a number of couples here -- all have come back with rave reviews.

 

Yes, there is a rocky part of the beach, but there is also the beautiful white sand...

Sorry if this seems like a really dumb question but what does the tour operator (Transat etc...) have to do with your wedding package? I'm going to Barcelo Maya Tropical (or Colonial if I end up booking with Transat) and have already chosen my wedding package and placed my wedding day "on hold" with the resort. Wedding week: Feb 20, 2011 and wedding package: Strawberry Passion.

Am I missing out on something? smile43.gif

 

Thanks for any info!!!!!!!
