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 Would you consider them outdated?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 I really don't want any musty, mildewy, outdated facility for my wedding.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?

Definitely ask me any questions that you want cheesy.gif I wouldn't have been able to create the day that I did without the help of everyone on this forum. You can PM me or if you can email me at adinu83@hotmail.com

I'm not sure if you had a chance to read my review, but I think I covered most of them in it (at the bottom of my siggy)...minust the cold food part, which the answer is "no the food was warm" Everything was amazing, I am really thrilled about the service, food, etc... You will absolutely LOVE having your wedding at Dreams and having Juan as your photographer. He's amazing. Also if you go to Desires with a bunch of people it will be fun for sure. That was the first time I went in there and to be honest I didn't even recall whether there were other people there or not...I was so in the zone with my own group of friends..lol

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! bunny_4.gif

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?

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
