Just got back late Monday night from Cabo Azul. What a beautiful property! Although I am not a huge fan of the chapel due to the fact that in the ceiling there is a star of david and cross next to eachother and since we are jewish, we felt that it was more of a church feel in there. Also, I think they made a big mistake putting one of the baptism baths in the middle of the aisle so basically when you will walk down the aisle, you will need to walk around the fountain which maybe I don't understand because I don't use that in my religion (or lack there of -- i am not very religious at all!!)
The pool was gorgeous but very quiet. The hotel was apparently at a 70% occupancy. There are no activities going on at the hotel and the pool bar, restaurants, hot tub areas were all very quiet!! i think that we may have a little issue with the hotel being quiet because a group of our expected 40-50 for the wedding might be too loud and abnoxious just trying to have fun. We asked them to put the music up a bit near the pool, and they didn't allow that.
The hotel is located about 30 minutes from Cabo San Lucas so if you are looking for anything to do outside this hotel locally, you won't find that. There is still lots of construction going on and the lobby area may not even be complete until December. I was anticipating a November wedding however they stated the construction will be done by October which may not be the case here.
The beach was ok...you can't find jet ski rentals or any activities other than horseback riding in that area on the beach unless you walk further down the beach. I just felt that for such a beautiful property, unless you are looking for peace and quiet, this is not a hotel for you.
The restaurants were pretty good, but definitely pricey. We were concerned with these prices given that our guests are flying all the way from NY and are used to high prices; however 2 glasses of wine at $30 and shrimp cocktail to total $70 with tip seems a little extreme!!
Sergio the wedding coordinator was awesome...such a sweet guy and I have the upmost confidence in him. I am still undecided if we will move forward with this hotel because I am worried about the location, the activities, and the prices. We are still figuring everything out....
The 2 areas where they can do functions -- the palapa, very nice and can rent out the area for minimum of 40 guests which is right next to the pool for a welcome dinner. The outdoor area where you can host your cocktails and reception was very nice as well. We loved that area! There are all tiki torches lit up with firepits until I believe 1am...if you do an outdoor function, music and everything outside shuts down at 1030pm and then you have to bring it inside to Javiers to the inside bar....again -- very quiet music playing...
Feel free to ask me questions and I will post pictures later today.
