    I am planning my wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace and would like to get anyones review/opinion on where to hold my wedding dinner at.  There are going to be about 50 people and I want something outside or an open air restaurant.  I don't want to be in a ballroom with no windows.  Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

      Hi There,


      I can't give you a review of where to hold your wedding, only because mine is not until March and I have'nt been there. I can, however offer you some feedback from what I've read from other brides who have had their wedding there. If you're looking for on the beach: you have a few options, the best being Playa Azul, which is a beautiful private location (as private as you can get on the beach) at the far end of the Barcelo complex (beside the Barcelo Maya Beach Hotel). Another Beautiful location is Coral Beach, which is outside the Palace Hotel and located a little above the ocean among beautifully lit Palm trees at night (which is where I'm holding mine). There is also Palmeras (sp?) beach which is outside the Tropical hotel (I think) and is nice, from the pictures I've seen.l But you're also in between the loungers, which I'm sure you can ask them to move. From what I've read, there's also the open air restaurants (don't know their names) that brides have been quite happy with as well. It really all depends on what you're looking for.

      Hope this helps,

      I know if you look through the thread, there will be some other reviews that will help,

      Happy Planning :)

        Hi Jenn,

        Thanks for your input.  Can I ask what package you are going with for your wedding?  I am torn between the Mint Breeze and the Strawberry Passion.  I was told with the Mint Breeze we only have the option of doing dinner in the banquet room.  There is a very large price difference between the two packages and was just trying to decide it it was worth the extra money to go with the Strawberry Passion...

          Hi JSC,


          No problem, anytime!


          We've decided to go with the Strawberry Passion Package. I know there is a huge price difference between the two and even more so for us because we have 30 people coming and we have to pay an additional $66 p.p. beyond the 15 people that are included. That being said, for us, having it in a banquet room was not an option. I didn't feel right having a destination wedding only to have my reception in a banquet room, which both of us, along with my family figured we could do at home. The idea of getting married on the beach and dancing the night away with our toes in the sand really swayed us. However I know that there are other brides who prefer the open air restaurants and even the banquet rooms and have chosen to hold their receptions there. Do what you guys feel is right and of course within your budget. Just remember, it's your wedding and one of the most special occasions you'll ever experience :)
