Melia Cabo real questions????

Recommended Posts

I am really excited about the information about Melia Cabo Real...it looks so nice! I wanted to take a site visit, but with all this info, I think I will just go with my gut!

 

Now, I just need to get in contact with the Priest at Mission de San Jose del Cabo to arrange the wedding. Does any one have a direct contact email? I emailed the church about a week ago, but am dying to hear back! I should be patient, it was just Easter!

 

Anyway, I'd love any more information available about Melia Cabo Real and the Mission de San Jose del Cabo!

 

Thanks, Stephanie

Grr...can't open attachments yet!  I am trying to decide between dreams and melia.  Any thoughts on the two?  I'm concerned about the prices of the seated dinner at melia for around 60 guests. Thanks for any info you can provide!

We had our reception at the Melia and I would not change a thing!  It was amazing!  Check out my Melia review:  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/melia-cabo-real-all-inclusive-beach-golf-resort/reviews/4256

 

I believe the price was $45 for each additional guest beyond 25 ppl...right?  Not shabby if you think that covers alcohol, appetizers, salad, main course and dessert + a cake!  Not to mention--you get the ceremony items included in the price.  Have you emailed Vanessa for the details or reached out to her on Facebook?

 

One thing that was a decision-maker was that the Melia had really afforable rates for our guests.  I think Dreams was a little more pricey.  But--after we did our site visit, I didn't really consider any other locations.  I loved how large the grounds were and the Garden Terrace--it was so romantic and secluded!

 

Good luck!  Happy planning!

Thanks for your reply LeeLee!  I have not reached out to Vanessa as of yet but will do so ASAP since I'm working on such a tight timeframe.  My FI is really concerned about costs for other guests and just reached out to Tammy and she said Dreams may have limited night/rooms available so may be looking more towards Melia.  Did you feel that Melia was more of a nightclub/party scene?  I think it would be fine for my friends but not my family!

I thought the Melia was pretty chill.  I think its all about who you end up there with.  The other guests....There were some crazy party animals by the pool a few days, but the pool is so large and has almost a 'divider' for a more chill atmposhere on the other side, across from the swim up bar.  The grounds are HUGE so you have space to getway and relax or hit the pool bar and get tipsy.

 

The hotel bar had entertainment every night.  A live band, karaoke, dance night, fire thrower/dancer night, etc.  So people are busy with the fun and not visiably wasted...ya know?  Our guests ranged from 2 to 65 and almost everyone was pleased with the atmopshere (even the "non-drinkers").  There is a bonfire, so if your non-party guests wanted to chill they could go by the fire.  I feel like the non-wedding evenings were consumed by dinner.  If you dien at the reservation resturants, that turns into an evening affair and by the time you're done with dinner--you almost are too full and tired to 'party'. 

 

I vote Melia!  :-)  One thing another DW bride said was that another resort they toured, people were doing kegs stands and it smelled like throw-up, but that was not the case at Melia Cabo Real.  I think you'll be safe for whatever type of personality your guests may have.  The only downfall is that it is in the Cooridor, so a little too far from San Jose and San Lucas...a bus or cab ride, but for anyone that may be cabin fever...it might be too far. 

 

I think you'll be 100% pleased with MCR!  I was there for a site visit and our 9 day wedding trip and would go back! 

 

Thanks!  Stephanie

That sounds great!  The experience vastly differs between the people going there so perhaps the week of keg stands was just an exceptionally partying crowd!  Ambar just emailed me back with quotes from Melia and it seemed as the open bar was a separate expense.  Was that case?  It seems odd to have an all-inclusive and pay extra for an open bar.  Teresa from Vacations 4 Less is getting back to me room block quotes.  She told me that Melia is closer to San Lucas than Dreams (by just a bit).  My FI and I went to Cabo last year and stayed at the Villa del Palmar and felt that it was a perfect distance to San Lucas.  Is Melia closer to the San Lucas or further?  I am getting so excited and so glad people are responding so quickly!

The Melia is closer by a bit to San Jose Del Cabo and Dreams is closer to Cabo San Lucas by a little bit. The resorts are pretty close to each other.

Hello!  I cannot speak to to distances between the Dreams and MCR--b/c I don't really remember, but this was the breakdown of our wedding package/food/bev. 

 

When we were at MCR in February, the Tropical Fairy Tale Wedding for $1890 includes cost for....(things may have changed?)

  • Wedding Cermony (legal might add to the costs?  we got married in a church, so this did not apply to us)
  • 24 guest's appetizer, 3 course meal, cake and open bar (you don't really pay 'extra' for an open bar, I feel this costs covers the extra staff involved to set up for your private event, private bartender, etc.).  Being that it is an all-inclusive resort, its like...why are teh Bride and Groom paying more, b/c the guests have paid already and if they weren't dinning at the wedding reception, they'd be dining at on the MCR's buffets...but you kind of just have to throw that idea away--since its a private party with an elevated menu, servers that are really attentive, etc....ya know?
  • Brides Bouquet
  • Groom's Boutonniere
  • + $45 per guest over the 24 (our guest total was 32, including us)

 

I hope that helps!  Let me know if you need more details!

Hi, I'm planning on getting married in cabo June of 2013.  I just started nursing school so it's been hard to try and plan a wedding and study.  After a lot of research I'm really like Melia because of all the great feedback and because of the swimmable ocean.  I emailed Gabriela yesterday and haven't heard anything back yet.  Hopefully someone here can answer some questions.

 

I was looking at the Tides wedding and when it states "Dinner Reservation in a selected 'A la Carte' Restaurant on the Ceremony night "  does that include the actual dinner, or is that an extra cost depending on what is ordered? Do you know what they charge for guests not staying at the resort?  What options are there for after dinner dancing, etc?
