Dreams Cabo Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi KrazyK,

 

I'd love to see your site visit pics!!! We are STILL trying to decide between the Riu and Dreams for our wedding July 2010. We have been to the Riu and loved it but based on wedding reviews, Dreams sounds better. However, the pictures I've seen of the grounds of Dreams don't look as nice as the Riu. So many decisions, but pictures are worth a thousand words!!!

 

Looking forward to seeing the pics!

Ange, my fiance Matt and I just got back from our site visit to Dreams and stayed the rest of the week at the Riu. Personally, we liked Dreams better because it is smaller and more intimate. It is also a more upscale crowd at Dreams...for example: There were a few weddings at Riu while we were there and one of them took place at a gazebo at the Riu palace...Well, the gazebo happens to be right next to the swim up bar at the Riu Santa Fe (right next to the Palace) and the bride and groom received many screams and whistles from everyone who was trashed at the bar. Another couple got married down on the beach and walked through the pool area (also filled with drunken people) to take some pictures on the bridge. Not to say these are bad things...But for us, we have some older family members coming to the wedding and didn't think Riu was the best place for them to be.

 

We did stay at the Santa Fe which is not as nice as the Palace...but since they are connected you really get the younger, more crazy crowd from the Santa Fe as well.

 

We LOVED the Riu too...it was a ton of fun and we will definitely stay there again at some point...but overall, Dreams felt more romantic and intimate for the actual wedding.

 

It mostly depends on what you want for your own wedding. I have lots of pictures from the Riu Santa Fe if you want to see them. We had an amazing room with the best view! Dreams also has good views too, though.

 

Good luck!!!

 

I will do a longer review of our visits to Riu and Dreams this week :)

Dreams was great, the people, atmosphere, and the service was exceptional! We were there during superbowl so they set up a projector on the beach for everyone to watch, plus food and drinks what more could you ask for!! So here are some pics of the room, grounds, superbowl party, and activities they offered!

We were only there two nights so we didn't get a chance to eat at all the restaurants. We ate at the Seaside Grill which was yummy, and El Patio for breakfast. I'm not a breakfast person so the yogurt, fruit, and toast or bagels worked for me. They had alot to choose from eggs, mexican eggs, sausage, refried beans, oatmeal, cereal, pastries, potatoes, waffles, pancakes a little bit of everything!

 

I liked the drinks we were buzzed the whole time we were there!! We asked for extra shots of Tequila and they gave it to us with no problem, and tipping always helps! They were very appreciative!

 

Only entertainment we saw was on the beach when the guys were throwing the football thru the board (don't know what it's called). And they had cheerleaders out there, everyone seem to be having a great time!! I really enjoyed being able to watch the superbowl on the beach, that was a big plus with me!!! I'm sure there was more entertainment but we weren't there long enough!!

 

Hope this helps!

I would love to know the dress codes as well, I saw on the website that they do not allow flip flops in the dinner restaurants, is that true?

 

 

Also past and present dreams brides: for thos of you who used there resort for hair. mani/pedi did you book your appointments in advance thru the WC or did you do it when you got there?

 

Any info would be a big help.

 

thanks!

Yes, the Japanese / Pan-Asian restaurant, Himitsu, does not allow flip flops. I actually saw them refusing entry to some guests who were not appropriately dressed. The other dressy restaurant is the Italian one, Portofino. It's a definitely no-flip flop / cut-offs kind of place. The other restaurants are casual and flip flops are fine, but no swimsuits. Hope this helps and good luck!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
