Site visit to Hilton and Dreams
Posted 05 June 2007 - 12:06 AM
I've always enjoyed the all inclusive thing on the cruises I've been on, but I went to a Sunscape resort in the Riviera Maya last year, which was an AI and is also a sister property for Dreams, and the food and service were bad, so that makes me a little hesitant. I should note that Sunscape is a notch below Dreams, so I would expect more from Dreams. Unfortunately, I have not tried the food at Dreams. I wish I had while I was there.
Also, although the AI is more convenient, I think it would be kind of restrictive, and since there seemed to be many great restaurants in Cabo, I would hate to stop people from trying them.
I think you made a great choice in the Hilton because the service seems to get stellar reviews. My head tells me I should probably choose it because it's the safest choice. I don't have any doubts about how the food and service would be. But when I saw Dreams, I just loved the character of the resort and the way it photographed.

have you considered any of the other hotels? Casa del Mar, where Natasha got married, is a gorgeous property with what looked like amazing food. I think she may have had some issues with them though so I would see what she has to say. Anyway it's right near the Hilton - it's not an AI but it has a true Mexican feel to it and it's smaller.

We are also using Maye, and if we werent, I would be feeling really scared during this process!!
I can't wait to go and get married and come back and give you guys the scoop!

I decided to go with Dreams. It was just a better "fit" for us. Plus, Hilton's group rate that was given to us did not include tax. Once I added that in and compared it to Dreams' group rate with tax, they wound up being almost the same. So, it made sense to go with the AI. I'm sure it could be different depending on the date, but that's how it worked out for us.

But I will warn you that a a wedding at the Hilton can end up costing a whole lot more than a wedding at an AI! Even with the set-up fees and costs for daypasses the food/drink bill at the Hilton will be higher. I never did make it down for a tasting but everything I've heard about the food there is great so I am excited!
