Do you happen to know if we would have to pay the $500 resort fee for a photographer if the photographer was part of our wedding party and also staying at the resort??! I can't seem to find the answer to this question. We are going to barcelo maya palace deluxe in riviera maya:)

I asked this very question myself and was told by my WC that no, there would be no charge incurred. It might vary by resort though. Did you ask your WC directly?

My WC also told me that if they come with us and stay as a guest (we are required to stay at the resort) then we did NOT have to pay the fee. Just email them and they should give you a straight answer.

Generally you will find that as long as they are a paying guest (a lot of times for a minimum of 2 nights or more depending on the resort) they won't charge you the outside vendor fee. Having said that, I've heard over my time here that Barcelo resorts can sometimes be a bit difficult to work with so I would still get in touch with your WC just to be absolutely certain.


Good luck!

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

I would still ask your resort, logically they shouldn't charge you, but my resort said they still would  charge the vendor fee just not the one day pass fee. I think the vendor fee is ridiculous and I fought it just explain to them you are bringing a lot of business to their resort by having your wedding there both from all the guests that will be attending and the actual wedding costs them self. Most of the times they will work with you and potentially reduce it but YMMV.

My resort didn't charge if they stayed the week with us. I'd check to be sure so you have no surprises. Can't recall if my contract said 3 or 7 consecutive nights.

    @MacyLyn Yes you have too, recently Barcelo change the option to pay 2 night stays for a Photographer to avoid the outside vendor fee, even as a guest... :(
