Is Melia Cabo Real "boring and old"???


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I am in the beginning stages of looking into/planning my destination wedding. I am totally in love with the info and images I recevied from Cecila at Melia Cabo Real, but when I called my travel agent to discuss, she said that it was "boring and old." Kind of like apartment buildings. Bummer....

 

Does anyone know if this is true? Has anyone had a wedding there recently--did you love or hate it? Did it get renovated recently? I would love to hear pros/cons.

 

My fiance and I are in our late 20's and our guests range from 20 yr old party animals to 65 yr old Grandma's!!! We need a place that is fun, afforable, nice, clean, for everyone.

 

I would love your opinon's if you've heard much about Melia Cabo Real.

 

Thanks, Stephanie

Hi,

 

I am having my wedding at the Melia Cabo Real this November. depending on what you mean my old and boring - i had to accomodate a 'family friendly' 'budget friendly' resort to cater to my guests. sure it might not be 5 star but i like it. it's all about personal taste and i have been to the Melia PV before and know what to expect. A travel agent that i spoke with actually told me the opposite what yours said - she said it was great and has been there.

Thanks so much! I spoke to another travel agent and she said it was a wonderful resort..."older, but renovated" I feel much better about it now. I am also going on a site visit to ease my mind. I will post pics when I return! Thanks!

I absolutely disagree!!

 

My fiance and I stayed there this March while we were looking for wedding venues. We LOVED the Malia. Cecilia (wedding coordinator) is wonderful, and the food was GREAT. We were upgraded to an Ocean Front room, and loved every morning waking up to whales jumping right out of our window. It's practically a private beach, and beautiful remodeled lobby. We saw 6 other hotels... the Barcelo would have been our #1 choice, because of how gorgeous the grounds are, but it was out of our budget. I wanted to have a venue that our grandmothers would feel relaxed and comfortable, but also our late 20's friends. There's something for everyone there, and it was all about relaxing and enjoying our family and friends for the weekend.

 

Definitely not old and boring.

Ohhh! So wonderful to hear! My new Travel Agent--without the attitude told me that Melia was wonderful and also suggested Barcelo--but seems a little more spendy, like you mentioned.

 

We are going to visit over Memorial Day--do you think we arrange a few other hotel site visits or do you think Melia Cabo Real is the ticket? I just want to make a decision and not spend days of our trip going to a bunch or resorts!

 

Thanks!

We had our Welcome Drinks party at Melia Cabo Real. It was definitely not old and boring. Some of our guests stayed there, and there were a ton of activities, a different theme party every night, and lots of energy. They have a really nice lounge in the lobby, that had a DJ spinning techno music. The grounds are really nice too. I worked with Cecilia for my Welcome Drinks party and she was great! They brought out lounge furniture and lighting to the beach for us. And had a DJ set up techno/lounge music. The bartenders working our party were so much fun too....they were walking around with shots and literally pouring them into guests mouths.

I am having my wedding at the Melia Cabo Real in March 2012!

 

I visited Melia recently and I didn't get the old and boring vibe! I didn't get to see the rooms while i was there (which may have told me a lot more. .. ) but the grounds were beautiful and not out of date! 

 

Melia is actually one of the first resorts in the cabo area so of course It is definitely older compared to the new, extravagant resorts in the area but it wasn't noticeable. Personally, I strongly believe that it is what you make of it! I know there are fancier places in the area but my fiance and i chose to do business with melia because of all the good reviews, our wonderful site visit, and the gorgeous grounds. The beach is huge too! I have no doubt that our friends and family will be happy staying here.

 

Oh and here is a quick fun fact: the travel channel actually named Melia Cabo real as one of the top 10 resorts in all of Mexico! I think this information itself is a little dated. But hey, it's still good news right?!

Hey there!  We did decide on MCR and loved every minute!  The wedding planners are wonderful and our wedding reception was amazing--perfect--magical!  I agree with you 100%!  Good luck in 2012!  And...just some advice...book the 10 piece mariachi (worth every penny!) band and have sparklers during your first dance!

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣
