When: February 6th, 2016
Where: El Cid La Ceiba Beach
Wedding Coordinator: Roberto Barrientos

A heartfelt thank you to Mr. Roberto Barrientos and his gracious staff at EL Cid La Ceiba in Cozumel. Not only is Mr. Barrientos a stellar Catering Director, but he is also an excellent wedding coordinator. I reached out to Mr. Barrientos one year ago, inquiring about a possible wedding at his resort. He responded in a most kind and patient manner, sending me photos of the property, offering excellent suggestions and working to ensure all the fine details were met. Mr. Barrientos consistently went above and beyond by locating local vendors for us, such as a florist, hair dresser and make up artist, musician and baker. He collaborated well with our photographer, who was secured apart from the resort-welcoming her warmly. This is significant as many of the other resorts charge a fee and make it difficult to use an outside vendor, such as a photographer. As the months and weeks drew closer, we had no doubt that Mr. Barrientos would provide a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception. We hopped aboard our cruise ship, happily headed to Cozumel!

On the day of the wedding, our cruise ship arrived an hour late. Mr Barrientos had checked on the arrival time of our ship, knew of the late arrival and had already compensated. The room he provided for the bridal preparations was beautiful. He managed the vendors and coordinated our wedding guests and party. Although Mr. Barrientos is not a wedding planner, he certainly outdid any wedding planner I have ever seen. The ceremony and reception were beyond anything we could have wished for. The property was just magnificent. The Photos we are sharing will illustrate just how special our day was at El Cid. We highly recommend this resort, along with the care and expert skill of Mr. Barrientos. Any event you plan with him will be spectacular. El Cid and Mr. Barrientos are probably one of the best kept wedding secrets in Cozumel. Many, many thanks!
