Barcelo Los Cabos

It seems like a lot of the reviews so far mainly complain about service issues, but I would think by summer 2011 they should have a lot of the kinks worked out. I really love the resort grounds...FI really wants me to look into this resort as well.

if you don't mind me asking, are you already booked for your wedding at Barcelo? If so, are you planning on having a full reception? I looked at the packages that Violeta sent me and it seems like most do not offer a reception so I am just curious to see how much extra all the costs would be to have the full on reception/open bar, dinner etc.
Thanks in advanced.

The resort is absolutely beautiful and looks just like the pictures I've seen on the internet. Our room was fabulous with an ocean view (we were in the Premium club section but didn't pay any extra for that - I guess we just got lucky). The food was great. We ate at the Italian, Japanese, French and the steakhouse ala carte restaurants as well as the buffets and all were good.
This resort is within walking distance to San Jose del Cabo (25 mins by foot, $5 cab ride) and about 30 minutes by road to Cabo San Lucas.
I will say that if you are looking for a party atmosphere then there wasn't much of that happening there last week. There is not much night life on the the resort except for the piano bar has a lady singing a couple of nights a week. There is a nightclub across the street (Reds) but we didn't go there.
The firepits around the resort were terrific! There are some down on the beach and others closer to the lobby bars. They definately helped with getting to meet different people and keeping warm.
I did a fair amount of research before we left but I found the most helpful to be the facebook group set up with the name of the resort.
Hope that helps!

I just booked my wedding at the Barcelo Los Cabos for June 2011!!
The WC is absolutely amazing and the hotel will do anything your heart desires! They not only have wedding packages but also accommodate almost anything you want!
The hotel also has a very active Facebook group (BarcelÃ³ Los Cabos Palace Deluxe | Facebook) that people write on everyday and the hotel is constantly posting and responding questions. We have also started a discussion board (Welcome to Facebook) there for any brides booking or thinking of booking since the hotel is so new and not many wedding have been there so far.
From what we have heard everything to date has been stunning. I will post one account that I found below for an evening wedding. Enjoy:
"I saw an evening wedding there during my stay and it looked AMAZING...so romantic on the beach. They had put strings of lights all around the palm trees, little candles in bags of sand lighting the perimeter of the section of the beach. Beautiful flowers on the tables. Nice music, they put a plank of wood down with a white covering for a dance floor. My problem with other weddings I have seen at other resorts is that they have been in the day and not really cut off from the rest of the resort so you could potentially have a lot of pictures with a lot of people in bathing suits. But as this was in the evening on the beach it was pretty much deserted. Oh..it was sooo beautiful...I might even consider it!"
