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!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
