    I am a cabo bride and my FI and I have looked at so many venues. Does anyone have any suggestions about Zoetry? Or casa dorada?

    zoetry is AMAZING.  if i could do my destination wedding all over again, it would be here.

     

    the wedding department is stellar and i think some of the best in cabo.  the resort REALLY tries to accomodate all your needs for your wedding.

     

    it is an ultra luxury resort and only has like 34 suites.

     

    i did a review in our resorts section (see tabs on top of page) and visited last June.

         Thank you so much for the advice.  I am working with Yarai right now, and she has been great.  I'm waiting for her to give me room rates and such.  Do you think Zoetry can be done on a $20-25K budget with about 100 people?  Hmmm....

          Truthfully, I looked into Zoetry and it was just going to be too expensive for us and our guests.  I worked and worked on Yarai and got to her agree to the following:

           

          $220/person/night for those guests wanting to stay at Zoetry (all inclusive)

          $160/person/night for those guests wanting to stay at Dreams (all inclusive)

           

          The problem is that to have the reception at Zoetry, they were going to charge us $75/guest for those guests staying at Zoetry but $130/guest for those staying at Dreams.  $160 for those guests staying elsewhere. 

           

          Also, they have a list of required vendors for flowers and such that you have to use.  In the end, we decided it was going to be too expensive.  The other factor was that they required at least 10 rooms be booked at Zoetry. We didn't know if we could guarantee 10 rooms at Zoetry (due to the cost of $440/couple/night) plus we didn't want some of our guests staying at 1 resort with the majority of others at the other resort.  I was also disappointed as they would not provide free shuttle service on the night of the wedding.  Therefore, that would have been an additional cost.  Let me know if you have any other questions..I tried really really hard to make it work but in the end decided to go with Hacienda Encantada.  It has a ton of charm and they have really been reasonable on their pricing.  Good luck!

            Zoetry looks amazing and i would also have loved to have my wedding there but like you i felt it was too much to ask our guests to pay!

              Thanks everyone! I got some additional information from Yarai and found the same thing you all experienced. I just couldn't ask my guest to pay that much.
