Hi ladies! I'm back! I definitely don't have time to get my entire review done today, but it was lovely at the RPRM and I never saw a cockroach! ;) I see that a few of you have had some questions, but don't worry. For the most part everything was perfect.

 

I'm super jealous that you will all be able to meet! I wish I was going to be there!

 

The weather was beyond perfect. Just enough of a breeze that it wasn't too hot. The pool was refreshing and the ocean was beautiful. Nic- the towel stand is located right next to the pool. You get a towel card when you check in and you exchange it daily for a towel, and at the end of the day you can return your towel where they give you back the card. If you loose the card it's $20 USD. But surprisingly no one lost theirs and we ended up with extra towels by the end of the week somehow?

 

The food is very good. We didn't have a problem getting reservations to any of the specialty restaurants. Nancy and Dania (someone similar to Nancy at the RPRM) were able to help with reservations and nights we didn't have reservations we just showed up and asked if they had room to squeeze us in, which they always did. We only ate dinner at the buffet once (our welcome dinner). It was really good too, but we ate breakfast and lunch there every day, so it was nice to have a change in scenery. Not to mention lunch and dinner were very similar.  The brazilian steakhouse was great and the fusion and japanese restaurants were even better! The first night we ate at Chilis (the steakhouse) was awful and I got really nervous about having our reception there, but we decided to keep it there becuase I liked the "ambiance" of the restaurant better. I was really happy with that choice. It was way better the second time!

 

Let me know if you have any specific questions.

Thanks ladies! It feels great to be married. It didn't feel so great to get out of bed for work today though...I hit the snooze button on my alarm a few too many times - wishing I was still on our Mexico schedule!

 

I brought my ipod with music but we ended up getting the harp player. Long story short, they let us do the earlier dinner seating (we had 34 guests) so I didn't have to pay for the appetizer/cocktail reception like I had been planning!  We had a 5pm ceremony that lasted no more than 15 minutes. Then 20-30 minutes of pictures. We then went up and had a cocktail reception (included) with light appetizers and drinks. We had the mariachi band that played from ~6 to 6:40ish and then we went over to Chili's for dinner. Dinner got over about 9ish at which time we all went up to the show and had drinks and hung out until bedtime. It was really perfect. People who were tired were able to crash early, and those who felt like partying definitely did!

 

So, bottom line, if you bring your ipod they will give you (free) a sound system and someone to run teh music. Just put all the songs in a separate play list and then bring a piece of paper that says when to play each song (before ceremony as guests are gathering, as bridesmaids are walking in, bride entrance, signing of marriage license, exit, etc...). They will, no doubt, be able to handle it all perfectly!

The room we originally got (which according to the front desk was an upgaded room from the junior suite) was in no way an upgrade - it was the same room that all our guests had! So we decided, for $200/night, to upgrade to the Jaczzi suite. The room was amazing - two floors with a jacuzzi overlooking the pool/ocean, but I am not sure it was really worth the money. We didn't spend a lot of time in our room at all...

 

Basically, the resort is laid out in a "U" shape.

 

I     I - pool, beach

I     I

I     I - hotel rooms

I     I

I___I - lobby, restaurants, night entertainment

 

At the bottom of the U would be the lobby and the majority of the restaurants/shows. The two parallel "arms" of the U would be the hotel rooms. At the top of the U is the pool and beach, so as you can see, the only rooms that look out ot the beach are the few that are at the very top of the resort - not many at all. The majority look into the plaza (middle of the U) or outside the resort to gardens or in some cases, the cleaning facilities...

 

Does this make sense?

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
