Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe May 2014

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow destination brides! I have recently chosen the Barcelo Maya Palace as our destination wedding location, leaving April 30th next year!!! ! I am in the early stages of panning and am waiting for my destination travel specialist to get back to me with the next steps. I have a few questions for anyone willing to take the time to answer.... Has anyone upgraded the mint breeze package to move the reception to the beach? I really want to have both the ceremony and reception on the beach. I was looking at the sunset package, but since we are expecting 40+ people to attend, the extra charge p/p after the first 15 people is a little high. Are there any prefered beach locations that are recommended for the ceremony? What kind of flowers come with the mint package? My vision for the wedding is mostly white and/or creams with s few pops of colour for the bridesmaids dresses. It they are tropical flowers, can I have them changed to all white, or does that require an extra charge? What kind of music is included in the package? Do they play for the ceremony and reception? Can I sub the cake or photographer and save the money (we have a photographer friend hopefukly coming down) or do we get charged even if we dont want them? How are the photographers at the resort if we do end up using them? Thank you all so much! My information is greatly appreciated. I really don't know what to do next :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
