DREAMS Cabo, Questions - PLEASE help :)

Recommended Posts

Hello future/past Brides!

 

I am (almost) 5 months away from our destination wedding in Cabo.

My fiance and i did our site visit at the end of last year but still have a few questions;

 

-@ Dreams, how is the nightclub? We are a little concerned wit our reception ending at 10:30pm. Our friends will want to continue the party.

 

-We are not sure about a "Welcome Party", has anyone had their group meet for drinks at one of the bars then join in on the night shows at Dreams?

 

-Has anyone sampled the "Caribbean theme dinner" buffet? Or any of the other food at Dreams?

 

-How many will the hotel restaurants accommodate?

 

-Any info on the activity selection at Dreams?

 

Thank you so much!!!

Kristy

Do you know if you can host your welcome dinner at one of the restaurants if all your guests are staying/paying for AI? Additional charge? I would love to use one of the restaurants and just reserve an area. My fiance and I will check out the night shows one of the evenings we are there in April. I'll let you know how they are.

I finally heard back and was told that there is a $29 set up fee for groups over 10. Hope this helps...

We had a private welcome dinner at Portofino for our 40 guests. The additional charge is to cover costs for the wait staff and setup. Our mexican buffet setup was really beautiful and we asked them to set up tequila shots for us.

 

You won't be able to just "show up" at one of the restaurants and expect to sit together. If there's just a few of you, it shouldn't be a problem (under 10).

I was actually quoted at 15.00 per person because the only place left for a semi-private place was El Patio so it's not too bad for me. I have read that if there are large groups for dinner at the sit down restaurants, wait time for food is long so I want to tell my guests that aside from the reherasal dinner, they should just eat wherever they want on other days .

Hello Soon to be Mrs L.!

You can always go in downtown Cabo to finish the party, 10:30 is indeed early to end your once in a life time event !

A nice night club just opened on the main strip next to Squid roe, it's called the Mandala, the Passion club is also a nice option, and of course squid roe....

Good luck with the rest of your planning!

Desires is more like a lounge but it's nice enough, I actually saw a couple of after parties when we were there...even though it won't be private I'm sure they can let you decorate a bit, at least the tables if you want. They have good music and stays open until 1:30. Someone else mentioned Mandala, it's the newest nightclub in Cabo, great ambiance. Maybe you could reserve tables for some of your guests.

I tried making reservations at any of the Dreams restaurants for our rehearsal dinner but they are very strict with their no reservations policy. It would be around 20 of us so I cannot just show up hoping they will sit us together..they can't guarantee it. I still don't know what Im doing for my rehearsal or my welcome dinner. Im thinking of a tequila tasting, El patio, I have to speak to Yesica to see how that goes...

Oh! I like the lounge effect. That's probably where we will end up after the reception!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
