    Hi everyone! We are really hoping to get married in Cabo on March 29th. I know this is spring break but I'm finding that the prices for rooms/flights are way higher than what we paid to go in July. Have you guys found this as well? We are going from Thurs. to Sunday July 26th-29th and we paid $650 a piece for our flight and two nights at the Sheraton. I think this is totally reasonable and that's what I was planning on our guests paying when they come to our wedding. However, I got the Sheraton's price quotes for March 2008 and the cheapest room was like $350 a night. I can't ask all my guests to pay this. Any advice would be helpful. We're going to have to consider other hotels so any suggestions would be great. I really had my heart set on the Sheraton. If anyone has gotten married there and can tell me what they had to pay and has some tips for me, I'd love to hear them. Thanks!

        Not only will prices be high, everything will be so much busier. The airport, restaurants, clubs, beaches, etc. Unfortunately that's the way it is during that time.

          We got married at the Sheraton, but for the week we stayed at Villa Del Palmar. We also had our wedding on a week day, which I heard is much cheaper then on a weekend.

            Have you looked into Marbella Suites en la Playa? Not a fancy hotel at all, but it has an old Spanish charm to it and the all the rooms are actually suites (with kitchens and living rooms) and they're big and clean. The rate for a standard room next year is about $120 a night.

            But just so you know, there is no elevator - so unless you can get a staff member to carry your bags, you'll have to lug them up and down the stairs yourselves. There also aren't any TV's or phone's in the rooms (except for the Presidental Suite.) So if you have any issues with the hotel (need more towels, blankets, etc) you'll have to walk to the front desk rather than calling them. BUT - there is a phone room that allows you to make free calls to the US and Canada since the calls are routed through the internet somehow. And there is a TV room with recliners and a ping pong table. Plus, this hotel is directly on the beach, also has a pool and two hot tubs and a restaurant.

            I'm probably going to recommed this hotel for my guests that don't want to pay $300 a night at the Hilton. And we'll let them know that we're providing transportation for them to the welcome dinner and the day of the wedding. This way they don't have to stress out about getting around.

            Good luck!
