    Hi-

    We need help making a list of all inclusive resorts in Cabo to visit during our scouting trip. So far we have Dreams and Rui, any others to add? TIA :)

      Dreams & Riu are the nicest. Another one to check out though, is the Presidente Intercontinental. It is located in San Jose Del Cabo and is the farthest north resort of the Los Cabos tourist area. We stayed there for 3 of our 7 day scouting trip in September. It is smaller & quieter, than Dreams & Riu. The grounds are very pretty and the service is excellent. The food was not so fantastic, but it would be worth checking out. Almost right next door is the Royal Solaris, and the Crowne Plaza is right down the road.
      Another thing to consider when deciding between these 5 is the location. Presidente, Royal Solaris and Crowne Plaza are in San Jose del Cabo, Dreams is along the corridor of Los Cabos and Riu Palace is in Cabo San Lucas.
      We stayed at Riu for 4 days and loved it- there are many Riu brides on here that can probably help you if you have questions about that property.
      We chose Dreams for our wedding for a variety of reasons, but mostly because it had the wedding gazebo that we wanted, the quieter location and the ambience of the resort.
      Let us know how else we can help! If you want to see some pictures of Riu, Dreams, or Presidente there are some spread around on the forum, or let me know and I'd be glad to email you some.

        Hey Sarah,
        would you mind sending me the pics of the hotels. We think we are picking Riu because of its location but are still not positive. Thanks

          There's also Sol Melia Cabo Real (on the corridor next to the Hilton and Casa del Mar) which you should definitely check out as well. It shares the same swimmable beach as the Hilton and while we didn't end up doing the tour with the coordinator I do have contact info if you're interested (send me a Private message if you want the name/number and I'll dig it out for you). These websites have some comprehensive lists:

          http://www.loscabosg...s/inclusive.htm
          http://www.allinclusivescabo.com

          This is what the second website lists and my opinions:
          San Jose del Cabo:
          El President Intercontinental - Very nice
          Royal Solaris Los Cabos - terrible
          Crowne Plaza (formerly Faro del Cabo) - ??
          Grand Baja Resort & Spa - A friend stayed here and loved it
          Fiesta Inn - no idea

          Corridor Resorts:
          Dreams Los Cabos
          Sol Melia Cabo Real - very nice - great for golfers
          Calinda Beach Resort - never heard of it but only a "3 star" and this is Mexico.

          Cabo San Lucas Resorts:
          RIU Palace
          Costa Real Resort (downtown) - never heard of it

              Jackie- I just posted some pics of Riu under the Cabo Accomodation and Site category. The ones I posted are some of my "better" pictures, let me know there is something in particular you wanted to see. We took over 400 pictures of our various locations and activities, so you never know, I might have it!

                Thanks Sarah,
                youre the best. I'm sure I'll come up with a few ideas of things I want to see. That never seems to be a problem with me. ha ha. I'm so glad you took so many pics. Actually do you have any of the poolbar, and the gazebo area. I've seen pics of them before but I often wonder what they might look like on a normal (not picture perfect) day for a vacationer.

                  Those are actually two things I don't have pics of from Riu, but they are both really pretty areas!

                    Thats allright. Ive seen them both anyway. I just like to reasure myself that the vendors/magazine/online hotel photos are truly what they are you know. But taking your word for it is just fine.
