or maybe when doing research they didnt run across melia or the villa or their TA didnt suggest these places to them.
there could be numerous reasons why people dont choose those 2 and go with dreams or RIU resorts instead.

the hotel where I was married was not as popular for weddings. Even if you were looking for their site & wedding info directly, it was hard to find. at first I only could find people who got married at my hotel because they had happened to vacation there before.
I found that by getting married at a hotel that didn't do a ton of wedding business, I avoided a lot of the nickle & dimeing that it sounds like other brides get.
I just googled "destination wedding cabo" an rui has a paid ad on the right side.

Dreams and riu have facilites set up to do weddings 9gazebos, seperate catering dept.). like they have gazebos, a dedicated wedding department. They are also all-inclusive and that is what alot of DW brides and grooms are looking for. Also, along with resorts like palace resorts they offer "free" weddings and will handle arranging the legal or symbolic ceremony.
also, villa del arco is mostly eropean plan. they do have an all-inclusive plan but it is more than what you would pay at dreams.
I think another thing to keep in mind is that people that have their wedding at dreams or riu tend to have a great review upon their return and write about it. a good review says alot more than any paid advertisement.
