Private Villas

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone who has gotten married at a private villa in Cabo could share their experience. I was looking into it as a way to save on cost of food and drinks, as that is what is killing my budget at the resorts.

 

I would love to hear what villas have been used and for how many guests, and your overall experience/satisfaction with the villa. Also any info on what property management company you used and if there was an event fee or minimum nights of rental.

 

Thanks!!

From the research I've done, there isn't a single villa in Cabo that allows you to rent for only one night. So if that is your plan, you might not have a lot of luck. If you're OK with the night minimum then you have lots of options. I didn't want to stay more than 1 night so we ended up booking the Imperial Suite at the Fiesta Americana which feels like a private villa but it's part of a resort so they do the catering. The food and bev costs are not great though, I agree with you there!

I also did research on villas before deciding on the Hilton and what killed that idea for me was that all the villas I checked into had hefty event fees for weddings, so it defeated any cost savings I pictured. I couldn't agree more that food and drink is astronomical. I believe some people on the forum have done receptions at restaurants in the towns as a way to save money, if that's an option for you. Check out the reviews section of the forum.

mich is right...when i first started looking we were going to do a villa wedding as well but it was alot more expensive. villa's usually charge a huge fee for private events...and even bigger fee for weddings.

Hi jill,

You have to be aware that a lot of hotels will force you to end the party pretty early (some 10 pm, other 11pm).One of the advatages of celebrating your wedding in a villa is of course the privacy and the opportunity to party all night!

but this has obviously a cost...

good luck with your planning and congrats!
