We stayed at Barcelo Maya Palace from June 6th to the 13th, and our wedding was on June 11/2011. We had been in communication with our wedding coordinator for a year before we arrived and took care of all the details via email before we even arrived. Immediately upon arriving at Barcelo, we were taken to the Club Premium lounge which gave us special access to people who are able to help us, answer any questions, and check us in. We used that lounge quite a bit to access the internet and have our questions answered and taken care of immediately.
Our room was amazing- we couldn't ask for anything better.
As soon as we got there, the wedding coordinator scheduled all of our appointments with her, including the time to meet to finalize all the wedding details, our blood tests for the wedding, our spa appointments, and the bride's hair and makeup on the wedding day.
The meeting was quick and easy and she took all of the stuff we brought to use at the location for the wedding and incoporated it perfeclty with our vision.
We had 26 people staying at our wedding and they were spread out throughout the entire resort. This was sometimes difficult to organize things such as meals becuase of how spread out they were, but not everyon wanted to pay that much to stay at the Palace. The only complaint I have about that is that there were a few times that the Palace staff were rude to my wedding guests when they tried to come over and pay extra to eat in the buffet (aftter we had already sorted it out with the front desk).
We felt like the wedding was very organized and we had total faith that everyhting would be taken care of.
The blood test was totally worth the legal ceremony at this resort. We had an appointment, showed up in a nice clean medical centre and had the doctor expertly take our blood with no problems. It was quick and easy and definitely worth it for us.
The wedding day was amazing. Our wedding coordinator had everything planned out very well and organized. We weren't bothered by any details, until we found out that there was an issue with the musician- apprently he had an accident on the highway and wasn't coming. We hope he is ok--but they quickly found another musician to do the ceremony and began only about 30 minutes late.
The food at the reception was absolutley amazing. We had been used to amazing food staying at the Palace, but this food was amazing. We had surf and turf and evn though Lobster wasn't in season, they made sure to include it in our wedding because that was what was promised.
We got all the locations we wanted and hired a mariachi band to play at the reception which was wonderful.
The wedding couldn't have been more perfect.
The stay at Barcelo Maya Palace was also incredible in general. Again it was quite difficult getting together with guests from all over the resort because of its size, but it really has a lot to offer.
