Booking and FAQ

Booking and FAQ

To be considered part of Kenya & Alexander's Wedding Group, you must book through the group rates and not through any other method (even directly with the hotel). We have negotiated competitive group rates and secured a room block to make this as easy as possible. To participate in all of the wedding-related activities, you must stay at Barcelo Maya Palace as part of the wedding group.

  • A refundable deposit in the amount of $100/room is required to reserve your room and book your stay. You do not need to know all the parties in the room, the travel dates, or the room category; book your room based on what you think you will need and any changes can be made until the balance due date.

  • The deadline for the balance to be paid is August 11, 2019. Cancellations must be received in writing 7 days prior to this date to be refundable.

Any changes made to your booking after August 11, 2019, will be subject to a $75 change fee. Any changes requested after the balance due date must be paid for in full upfront even before they are confirmed. Name changes are deemed cancellations of the original booking and new bookings per the hotel; therefore, bookings are nontransferable after the due date of August 11, 2019, and will be charged accordingly. All late payments will be assessed a $25 penalty per every 5 business days the payment is late.

  • You can make a deposit and then let the balance charge automatically on the balance due date.
  • You can make a deposit and ask us to calculate an even amount to charge every month with the last charge to be made on the balance due date.
  • You can make a deposit and click the "Make a Payment" button whenever you want to make an additional payment in any amount and if there's any balance left, it will be charged on the balance due date.

+ What is the Cancellation Policy?

Any deposit or payments made towards bookings as part of wedding groups are fully refundable if requested in writing to stephanie@barefootbridal.com at least 7 days in advance of August 11, 2019. If a cancellation request is not made in time, all moneys paid towards travel will be nonrefundable.

Travel Insurance is available and highly recommended. Rates are per person, depending on the length of the land-only portion of your trip. For adults: staying up to 4 nights, travel insurance is $69; staying 5 or more nights is $99. Children 2-17 are half price; infants are covered under their parent's policy when all adults in the reservation buy the coverage.

+ What is the Weather Like?

The weather in Mexico is hot and humid with averages in the 80s year around. Humidity is lowest during Dec-Feb and increases the closer you get to August. Hurricane season starts in June and continues through November. There is a gentle breeze that comes off the ocean on most days, so make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen because the breeze makes it easy to forget just how hot and strong the sun really is!

You do not need an adapter for your electronics; the outlets in the Mexico will accept U.S. plugs.

+ What if I want to Book Excursions?
