This was incredibly helpful!  Thank you for putting this together for us :)  

 

We are looking at a spring (likely late April) 2019 wedding and are narrowing down the location.  I'm thinking Bareclo since we have such a range in guest age and interest (sounds like you did also!).  

 

Seriously - this document was SUPER helpful.  Random internet stranger says THANK YOU!

@@smfahey Thank you very much for your detailed review! This will be very helpful when I start planning my wedding at the Barcelo Maya! 

 

I am getting married in April 2019 and am looking into photographers at the moment. The resort photographer at the Barcelo Maya is Novia Mia. Their photos on their website are very nice however I'm having a hard time finding any info about their company (other than their website). I've seen a few reviews online but cant find anything on this site (which I find strange). I think the Barcelo recently switched photographer companies to Novia Mia so maybe this is why I cant find much info. 

 

They charge a $700 vendor fee to bring in an outside photographer so we were hoping to avoid this. If anyone has any info or reviews about Novia Mia photography this would be appreciated! 

 

Thanks  :)

 

PS - I would love to share info I get along the way if other brides getting married at the Barcelo Maya are looking to do the same!

Fantastic review!

 

I have been to Barceló Maya Beach for the last 6 years in a row(I was likely there in 2017 during your wedding )

 

I am very familiar with the grounds there-where exactly was the location of your ceremony and reception?

Does the resort give you options for both?

 

Thank you!

Marnie

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B

    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
