Janet,

I am definitely not ruling out Cabo Surf! It is on my visit list next week. However, Maye was leaning more toward Marbella because she said the beach was more private.

You booked a block of 10 rooms for two nights correct?

Amber,

In my experience Cabo Surf has been very flexible regarding the room block situation in regards to any site fee. I blocked of 10 rooms in the begining & release them 60 days prior to my wedding date. I believe only 5 of the rooms were actually booked. There is supposed to be a $10 pp locations fee if a miniumum # of rooms aren't booked...I don't think they are going to make me pay that, they waived it sometime ago.

 

So, point being, worse comes to worse you would pay a max of $350-400 location fee.

Have you thought about the Sheraton? I was quoted $330.00 for a location fee for a beach ceremony in front of De Cortez. They can do a wedding menu. I would at least talk to Irma at the Sheraton and see what she has to say..

Amber, Ask Maye to come up with 3 choices for you and visit them with her so she can give you an idea what you want. Maybe when you said "private" that is all she is thinking about and you may find that you would be happy with a simi-private beach..

I sent Irma an email a few days back and have yet to hear from her. I am definitely interested in The Sheraton and it is also on my site visit list. Did you have to book a block of rooms? Also, do they have a private area to have the reception? I am under the impression that you have to use one of the restaurants.

The $1,500 is for the use of the beach and reception area only (in addition to the thousands of dollars that I will have to spend on everything else!).

I am looking into FA. I was told that it is a $750 location fee. The food and bev is higher that the other resorts (around like $175-$250 pp) so it may not work out. Did you reserve rooms at your FA to make it cheaper?
They charged me $450 for setup at the beach for the ceremony and $80 per person (3 course dinner and unlimited mixers included)

I did do a contract for rooms but it was not required,,

Nope, were just staying there on our wedding night (we wanted to, they didn't say we had to) They have a coupld of places to have a reception, where Jess is getting married at on of resturants cooks for that spot. They also have rooms they could use. I know De Cortez doesn't allow outside music so you couldn't have your reception there, but I'm sure they have other spots that could work.

What I noticed when I first emailed Irma was put in the subject like "wedding site visit" she opened it and I got a response almost right away. I'm sure she gets overloaded with questions so if she know's your coming she would help you over some standard questions.

Ana,

That's a deal. Unlimited mixers? Did you get to supply your own alcohol?

I didn't have to book a room block at the Cabo Surf, but I think Christa's experience is more likely the case for 2007 weddings. I hope you like it there! I was able to do dinner for $40pp and 4 hours open bar for $42 (plus like $7 each for wine) so definitely ask them about working within your budget for food/beverage. (Again, I had 2006 prices, but the point is...ask)
