Hello ladies, what a helpful thread! My FI and I are interested in this resort for our July 2014 wedding. If I may ask... How is the beach at the Barcelo Maya Palace? I'm a bit confused because some pictures I see nice clear water and some I see brownish water and very rocky beach. Any ideas?

Hello Lori!

Beach at Barcelo Maya is just beautiful, here's a few photos that we have taken from our latest works at this resort:

As you can see, the ocean view is the most beautiful and perfect background!

Hi Lori, Have you been to Mexico before? I have been many places and the Barcelo is awesome! The beach is huge and has something for everyone! I've never been to a resort I could snorkel at and even see sea turtles!! There are rocky areas but also sandy areas. As for the color of the water, that changes from day to day no matter where you are in Mexico. It was clear and blue and amazing for everyday of our 14 days there except for the last day some sea weed washed in and it was really choppy and so it looks brown in areas as the sand is churning up. The color of the water depends on weather and sea weed etc, and it's been that way at all resorts and condos I've stayed at in the Mayan, including Tulum ruins which appear to have the most amazing beaches but when I visited there it was murky and dark brown.

Good explaination, FireyNurse.....the ability of Mother Nature to change the ocean + beaches is very powerful, for sure. Each situation has its' beauty, tho, so you know it will always be a wonderful experience........Enjoy!

No I have never been to Mexico, just vicariously through pictures. Thank you for that information it makes total sense!

First of all I am so glad I found this site!! omg!

 

You guys are so helpful!!

 

I am just starting this process because my fiance and i just decided on the fact we may be doing a destination wedding.

 

So we will be looking over the packages and picking one that matches our head count. Which we are not sure of that yet because we are getting married in October 2014 most likely that may be subject to change we are not sure yet. Any suggestions on a certain time of year? We have been down there a variety of times May, June, and close to July started raining a bit closer to July (tropical season) Didn't know if anybody had any other suggestions on the time of year though.

 

Any suggestions on starting this process??

I am wondering about the photographer situation it says in the packages photographers are not allowed outside of the hotel? is that true? Same with the DJ and Flowers?  Sorry for acting so new I am little overwhelmed! ahh!

 

Thanks!!confused.gif

Hi ladies!! Well I chose Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe as well (i fell in love with the Gazebo) and I'm going towards the strawberry package... But it can change depending on the guest. So I have a question how long did it take you all to receive a reply from a wedding coordinator at the resort. I emailed them a week ago with a list of questions and have yet to receive a reply... :(

Hi!  Congrats to all!!  I am also getting married in September 21st of 2013 at the Barceló Maya Palace Deluxe.  I was wondering if anyone had any advice on the best photographer to use?  I am not sure if I want to go with Smile Market as the resort recommends.  Any advice from anyone who got married at Barceló???

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
