Our guests stayed at Dreams. In November, no one paid close to $2000 for a 4/5 day stay. We stayed 10 days and paid less than 2,000 per person

All activities rehearsal dinner and welcome reception, my FI and I are paying for that way our guests don't have to pay anything out of their pocket except for transportation to/from airport once they get there.
This made me feel better about asking them to come to PV in this economy.
Happy Planning.... Once you get this decision made you will feel so much better

Dont get me wrong, and I dont want to insult and LeKliff brides. Le Kliff is very pretty and I have heard they do a lovely wedding, but those factors were difficult for me personally to get over. The comments my LC wedding got were that it was the most beautiful, memorable wedding my guests had ever been to, so I am biased.

So far, I have been exceptionally pleased with Carlos' and my wedding planner - Vallarta Weddings' communication time frames for me. I have never had a question go unanswered for more than just a day or so. Keep in mind that they are a restaurant - and they are NOT open in the mornings - so when they get your email it will be early evening time frame - so expect that there will be a 24 hour delay in emails being responded to. I know that anytime I have had a question my wedding planner was able to get in touch with Carlos within an hour and have an answer for me right away. Also, Carlos is just so nice I can't even say enough about him so far. A week before Christmas (naturally it would happen right when my checking account takes a giant hit from Christmas presents) another bride wanted to book on my day. Carlos called and let me know that I needed to make a deposit or he would let her have my day. He gave me the option first- many places wouldn't do that. He even offered to let me pay just a $250 deposit right then to hold my date and then pay the rest after Christmas. I thought that was above what he was required to do.
I have never been to either place so I can't say from a view aspect which place is better - but everyone I have ever talked to says the best thing about Le Kliff is the view. I figured what better background to my photo's could I have other than the ocean?
Good luck with picking your location! It's going to really come together after you get this done!

I would say, by far, we LOVED Dreams!! The beach was private, there was activities galore and the food was sooooooo good! Not to mention the service!

We are getting married at Dreams. Our guests are paying $128 pp but that includes transportation to and from the hotel. There are less expensive places to stay and they were difficult to work with in terms of getting a lower price for reserving a block of rooms. They also don't offer you much in terms of your wedding for bringing a bunch of people there. But is IS costing us less than $5000 (we are doing an open bar cocktail hour and 4 hour reception including sit down dinner in a private location but not much decoration). We wanted to stay in that part of town and there aren't many options down there and it really does get great reviews, so we'll see!
If some of your guests stay at an AI and others don't, those who aren't staying won't be able to visit without paying a fee (at Dreams I think it's $60 or $70 dollars a day). If your wedding is there and they arrive within 30 minutes of the ceremony, they don't have to pay.

But I'm still looking around before I book that location.
