Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe 2015

Recommended Posts

I don't know where those specific pictures were taken, but as far as privacy goes, we are getting married at Playa Azul, and having our reception there. It is looked a little past Maya Beach, and from what I have read that is the most private spot you can get married. I have also read that Coral Beach is pretty private.

Question for anyone that has checked out the Barcelo in Riviera Maya website lately…I have been checking for two weeks and for some reason the trips and excursion page is in German! I have checked it on my phone, and on two different computers, and even though "english" is selected as the language on top, the trips and excursions page ONLY is in German. Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just showing up on my internet connection?? Thanks!

Dear cfinkenbine,

 

I see that too. Its wierd because parts oft he page is in english but the information about each tour is in German. 

If you have a wedding planner at the Barcelo they might be able to help you out.

 

Regards

Alexis

Well I am glad I am not the only one it is showing up in German for! I was just waiting to see when it would change back to normal…but it has been at least two weeks so I guess I might have to e-mail somebody!

Having been to the Barcelo now, the beach that you can get the MOST privacy at is Playa Azul and it actually has the nicest beach and water (in my opinion). The beach in front of the Tropical and Palace has lots of rock etc, so if you like that then its good, but I like the look of all sand into teal blue water which is Playa Azul. It is slightly removed from the resort too so you dont have all the same passerby's like you would at the other locations. The only thing is there is not a lot of tree coverage, so it can get hot!

I am getting Married November 2015 at Barcelo. We are just in the beginning stages of planning, and from what I noticed from all the other brides I probably should have started a year ago! Makes me nervous to say the least!

I had originally booked the blueberry dream package, but in hind site I decided to upgrade to the mint breeze. (I am still waiting for a response from the WC of this is allowed). I have a few things I'm hoping you guys could help me out with...

Has anyone ever brought thier own officiant?

Have most people brought their own decorations?

Has anyone used a cigar roller at thier reception? Was it worth it?

Reviews on outside photographers... Del Sol or Ivan Luckie?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Brides!

 

I am in the process of planning my wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace on 5/12/16 and I wanted to reach out to all who are also in the planning process.

 

One of the biggest things that can cause the most stress is finding a photographer, and I was lucky enough to have another bride share her tips with me, so I figured I would pay it forward and do the same. Although the wedding is still a few months away, I would recommend Octavio Montes to anyone who is looking for themselves. http://www.octaviomontes.com/

 

I was originally just doing google searches, and was only coming up with really expensive photographers, so when I saw this recommendation I was really excited to check it out. Not only is this one of the most affordable options, it is actually cheaper than using the Barcelo photographer even with having to pay the $500 resort fee.

 

I keep hearing that my wedding day will fly by, so I feel extremely relieved to know that we have all of our special moments ready to be captured!

 

Happy Planning to all!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
