Our hotel just sent us this press release.
LOS CABOS RESORTS OPEN FOR BUSINESS AS HURRICANE
JIMENA BYPASSES DESTINATION
Los Cabos, Mexico (September 2, 2009) - The Los Cabos Convention &
Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce today that the destination was spared
significant impact from Hurricane Jimena. Hotels and resorts are fully
operational and all tourism services throughout Los Cabos have resumed today.
According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Jimena was
officially downgraded to Category 2 status overnight as it traveled in a
northwest direction away from Los Cabos. Additionally, the Mexican
government has discontinued the hurricane warning for the entire southern part
of the Baja California peninsula, the location of the resort destination. Forecasters
predict that Jimena will continue to weaken as it moves inland.
From the beginning, the Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau was
well prepared for the approach of Hurricane Jimena. The municipality of Los
Cabos did not lose electricity throughout the duration of the storm and there
have been no reports of injuries. Additionally, the San Jose del Cabo
International Airport (SJD) has re-opened after flight operations were
temporarily suspended yesterday as a precautionary measure. The Port of Los
Cabos is scheduled to re-open today after 12:00PM MST.
“While we were well prepared for the storm, we are obviously very
relieved that Hurricane Jimena passed us by,” says Gonzalo Franyutti, President
of the Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau, “Now our guests can resume
their vacations and our fine resorts services without further concern.”
Known for it’s world-class fishing, championship golf courses, luxurious
spas, exciting eco-adventure, endless array of water sports and much more, Los
Cabos has been experiencing a rise in demand in recent weeks as the economy
begins to show signs of recovery and is expecting to be the destination of choice
for the upcoming fall and winter travel season. For more information on Los
Cabos, please visit the official website at Los Cabos - Leave It All Behind.

Hotel Casa Dorada on Medano Beach-A-We love this hotel. We purchased a 5 year timeshare last year and knew this is where we wanted the ceremony and reception. We had the Ceremony on the Deck which was wonderful because it gave us the benefit & luxury views of LandsEnd and overlooking the beach, but still had that privacy, because we were up away from all the people down on the beach. This is absolutely our style and what we felt comfortable with. The newest hotel on Medano beach next to ME cabo and right above Mango Deck. We loved the ambiance of all the activity going on. If exclusive is more your style then I would suggest somewhere else. Casa Dorada is a Short 5 minute walk to the Marina and town. Every single room in this hotel faces the ocean and the rooms have that contemporary modern d©cor. I loved it because it had everything a huge resort offers in a decent size package. There are two huge georgous pools, and 2 restaurants on location, 12 tribes & Maydan. They have a wonderful gym and a full service spa and salon. The service and accommodations were outstanding. The only thing that bothered me was the first 3 or 4 days was my room key kept deactivating and wouldn’t work. The front desk made a call to clean the card reader on our room and I did not have any problems after that.
Oh, and one of the elevators was out of service and the other one closest to our room would act a little funky every now and then, but other than that..…Bravo!!!!!!!
Fire Dancers – Luna de FuegoA+
What can I say, they were fantastic! There were 2 female dancers and 3 live musicians. They performed for approximately 15 minutes and my guests were all entertained. Wonderful!
Reverend Marcos ArechigaA+++
I booked Marcos upon reviews I read here on the Forum. What can I say, HE IS WONDERFUL!! Marcos was truly a pleasure. Marco met at our hotel 2 days before our wedding to go over our ceremony and vows and to get a personal feel for him. He really made out ceremony special and so many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. He incorporated both English and Spanish which was fantastic. Great job Reverened Marco.
Cake- Sweet DreamsA+
I had absolutely no problems with Sweet Dreams. They delivered a cake exactly how I wanted and it was sooooo delicious and moist. Seriously just thinking about it is making my mouth water. I had a cupcake cake with 1 tier and the flavor was red velvet. Sweet Dreams did a fantastic job!!
DJ Ricardo did a good job. He was attentive to our needs. He did not have any problem incorporating our playlist into his mix. He was well prepared in advance. The entire party loved the music.
Photographer Alberto Misarachi-Helix audioC-
Alberto did a great job with our engagement photos a year ago. The wedding photos were OK, although we still have not seen the originals yet. We are making that judgment based on the photos he published online. His professionalism was perfect until after the wedding. Shortly after, he disappeared. We are not sure what happened to him, since he has not replied to emails for over 3 weeks. We hope he is ok and hope to update his review once we hear from him and receive our disk of photos and our book of photos we have already paid for.
Makeup artist Neysa BermanNO CREDIT
I had booked and paid Neysa about 2 months before my wedding based on all the positive reviews on the forum here. My decision was between her and Suzanne Morel. I went with Neysa. Well she wasn’t the fastest responder to my emails and found that I had to follow up with her more than a few times. Nonetheless, I was super excited to have her do my makeup and eyelashes on my wedding day. Well unfortunately a week before my wedding she emailed me to say that she would not be available on my wedding day. She had a medical emergency out of town, but not to worry because her top assistant Enrique would be handling my makeup. I wasn’t very comfortable with this at all as you can imagine. I asked Neysa to send me Enrique’s full name, credentials, work history and photos of his work. She never supplied me with the request. I asked her at least refund me $25.00 which she agreed to. Well the day of the wedding Enrique was a no show!!! Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed.
My WC sent emails to Neysa the next few days to request a refund, but again, no response. I just felt this was so unprofessional of her, therefore the day before I was to leave I sent her a direct email telling her I expected a full refund before I left Cabo the following day. I do give her credit for showing up an hour before I took off and drop off a check to me personally. I was really looking forward to giving her an outstanding review..But unfortunately she gets no credit.

It sounds like our wedding will be very similar although we're doing the actual ceremony down on the beach, the cocktail hour at the poolside Firepits and the reception and dancing at 12 Tribes. Less than 3 months!! It's actually starting to kick in that it's really happening!
