Birthday celebration

Everything went well. I was sooo nervous that something was not going to go right. I read the reviews on trip advisor and they were all great which made me decide to go with this company. Daniel communicated very well since day one and was very patient with me, as I had a lot of questions and a couple changes to the reservation. All the staff was nice, the boat was clean, the food was good, and the DJ was on point. Everyone had a great time.

The perfect welcome party for our guests!

We were going back and forth whether to do a dinner or a boat party for our welcome party and when we saw La Barcaza and all the positive reviews we knew we had to book this. Booking was extremely easy and the communication was seamless. The team was able to accommodate everything from the food/alcohol, to hours we will be on the boat, to the music we wanted, everything! There was never any issues from the booking, selecting the menus, all the way to picking us up from our hotel. We had about 100 people on the boat and the staff were super helpful and took care of everything we wanted. The DJ played great music and had all of the guests dancing the entire time. The food was amazing and came out at the perfect time, and the drinks were flowing. I know it says its recommended to book the extra hour and I could not agree more. You will regret not doing the extra hour like we did! This event was all the wedding guests were talking about the rest of the week. Thank you again to the amazing staff, you took amazing care of us. You should be booking La Barcaza yesterday, do not wait up!

One word! AMAZING!!!

First word that comes in my mind when I think of La Barcaza is : AMAZING!!!

We got married with La Barcaza in August . First of all, it took us 8 months to plan this wedding. We sent tones of emails to Daniel during all those months and he was so patient with us, explaining everything and answering our questions. The communication with him was so easy.

We decided to bring our own decoration and once we land in Punta Cana, someone from la Barcaza came to our hotel and picked up the decoration to bring on the boat. That was so easy and appreciated. The day of the wedding, a problem with the bus occured and Daniel took steps rapidly to make this up.

I was so stressed to give that amount of money to someone I didn't even know. But I'm telling you, don't hesitate to trust Daniel and his team. The wedding was perfect on the beach. Even with the rain. It was magical.

The photographer was so nice and the pictures are amazing with the sunset. Food on the boat was very good. We chose the VIP Premium package and we did not regret our choice. My wedding cake was gorgeous and tasted so good! Service was very good and a special thanks to Anamaria for the kindness and the mamajuana shooters!!

Don't hesitate to take extra hours. It's worth it! Th DJ was on fire and everybody danced all night! The party was insane and it continued on the bus when we returned to the hotel.

My guests told me that it's the best wedding they've ever attend to and that they will never forget it.

A little think I would recommend to La Barcaza : repair the clothes that protect us from the rain on the first floor because it was leeking a lot. Other than that everything was perfect :)

Thanks again to all the team!!!
