    Hi everyone! I am hoping everything goes well and Cabo Azul will be my wedding location in August! I have been in contact with Sergio and he is wonderful! My fiance' and I are in love with the resort. I have been working with a destination wedding coordinator (Elite Travel)and she is actually meeting with him in Cabo next week to work out the details Not sure how many people will be at my wedding. I think under 30. Any new pics or info anyone gets please email me! Jessieve680@yahoo.com. I will do the same for anyone!

      No pics uploaded yet..but I have many.

      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.

        Definately am very interested in viewing your pics if you can post them?....your review was extremely useful.....I was a bit concerned thatCabo Azul may be a quieter low-key location.....and we want music and late night fun for our guests....not a quiet wedding night, especially if they are making the treck out to Cabo! =( ....so, we too may need to re-consider other locations....Did you visit any other resorts, or could you recommend anywhere else you think would allow for music and late night fun, with day time beach activities, BUT is also a nice and elegant romantic resort? BUT that won't wipe out the wallet like the One and Only?

          I definitely think that your guests looking for a little bit of fun will not really find that at this resort. They wouldn't even pick the music up a little bit when we asked them because they workers said that it was a relaxing pool and quiet hotel. So that was my biggest concern considering people are coming from soooo far on the east coast to get to Cabo! I really liked the Fiesta Americana grounds. I am definitely a little bit of a hotel snot and am extremely picky. I just think that with them making you cut your wedding off at 1030pm (pretty standard) and then going to the inside bar which is not exciting at all, you may be bored even with a bunch of guests. It was beautiful and had a great venue for the wedding reception but just the fear of boredom was more important to me than that lush amazing swanky place at this point. I am reconsidering Cabo now and looking into the islands in the Caribbean due to the fact that it is far.

          I'll post pics later tonight...sorry for the delay.

          feel free to write me any more questions.

            Do contact me about other resorts. I've been to virtually all of them. Some do weddings really well... others just think they do. There are a couple major resorts I would run away from...

              I think that we have decided not to go with Cabo due to the flight annoyances flying from NY. I just cant imagine 40-50 guests flying out there and having to connect both ways. It will just ruin all of their trips.

                To anyone reading this... My fiance' and I really are hoping to have our wedding at Azul but there seems to be a communication problem between my travel agent and the person Grace that books the rooms for weddings. My wedding is going to be small about 20 ppl. If I do not get answers to my questions soon I guess I will have to start looking at other resorts. ANY SUGGESTIONS?? What about Marquis? Anyone know about this resort?

                    Grace is located in California and wasn't too hard to get a hold of when I was calling her. Marquis is very expensive however a better location. I think the grounds are beautiful but I think that all of your meal functions and whole experience may be a little pricier going to that resort. To me that resort feels more of a honeymoon spot but is gorgeous!
