    Hi,

        I think that I actually was there at Dreams the same time as you well we left on the Monday but I think that I saw you and your FI talking to Juan Carlos! Michael and I were leaving that day.

        I agree about the children part, there were alot that week (we stayed for 2). When we first arrived, on March 30th, there were less kids, and people in general. The resort was practically empty for the first week. We found that if we went over to the quiet pool by the Oceana terrace, it was much better and much more relaxing.
        That is so funny because I told Justin I recognized you from the forum too!! Ahha!! So how did everything go? Were you happy with Juan? He told me about your dress but I'm glad they fixed it and everything was fine. How was the reception? Was the food warm? My parents are worried about the food being cold since it's outside and they don't have covers (correct?). Who was your WC? Did you go to Desires after 10:30? We checked it out while staying at Dreams and it was pretty lame. I understand when you have your whole wedding party/guest it will be a world of a difference. I just know our friends are going to want to party after 10:30.

        I'm sure I'll be asking you many more questions if you don't mind. That is too funny we saw each other. We had an amazing time, so sad we're back. Take care!

          Hi Krebsler and Ana-

          Your pics were AWESOME!!! Thanks so much for posting them! They were probably the most helpful that I've seen on the site. I am interested in your trips to Dreams bc I am still quite torn bt Dreams and Riu. After some of the terrible stories I've read about Riu services, I'm leaning more toward Dreams. But I know that Dreams is older and I want to the best for my day (April 17, 2010). A couple of questions, if you don't mind :)

          1) How clean and updated were the rooms? Did they offer toiletries for the guest? Would you consider them outdated? Do you have pics of the rooms? I really don't want any musty, mildewy, outdated facility for my wedding.

          2) Did you visit Riu while you were in Cabo? If so, how does it measure up in terms of quality and service?

            Hi Krebsler and Ana-

            2) Did you visit Riu while you were in Cabo? If so, how does it measure up in terms of quality and service?
            1) I thought the rooms were creat and kept in amazing condition. They offered shampoo, sunscreen, shower gel, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, and much more. Basically everything you'd want or need. I've been to many 4 and 5 star resorts in Mexico before (mostly in the mayan riviera) and to be honest these were the best rooms I've seen in a while. Dreams had their rooms re-furnished and updated about 2 years ago, so everything is in good condition.

            2) I didn't visit the Riu, but we had guests who stayed there and only came to Dreams for the wedding and they seemed to like it. I think one of the only downsides to the Riu is their outside vendor policy, and the bride not having as much control over what vendors she hires. If you read through the reviews, and use the search function at the top of this page, you should be able to find alot of information on both resorts.

              the rooms were recently updated so they are not dated at all and they do include toiletries...even sunscreen.

              that sunscreen is amazing!!! Michael and I hardly used the sunscreen we brought because the Dreams one was so good! It smells great and it doesn't leave that white residue on your skin. I recommend it!

                OOHH that sounds wonderful, If you dont mind me asking, is it in like a huge bottle, or little packets that you can take to the pool?

                What about the other toiletries are they little bottles in the room , like standard hotel size?
