Dreams Cancun or Dreams Cabo? Help
Posted 13 September 2007 - 10:34 AM
Someone make up my mind for me!!!
Here's what I'm looking for...
I have about 50 guests coming, so I'm looking for a place that is not too much of a challenge to get to(distance from the airport, etc)...the room rate is also a big factor for most of my guests...I really wanted a place that was fun, with lots of activities going on during the day, not too uptight with dress code, etc, and pretty good nightlife...most of my guests are mid 20's and broke so we'd like to be able to stay at the resort and take advantage of the "all-inclusive" option...as far as the wedding, I love the gazebo at both locations and really want a reception outside possibly around the pool.
So any thoughts?

Maybe the RIU Cabo is a better option for the nightlife part?
Luckily there are a ton of Dreams Cabo brides here who can help you!

Both properties also have beautiful gazebos.
I know we were interested first in cabo but made part of our decision based on location for us coming from the east coast. It was going to be less expensive for us to fly to cancun rather than cabo.
Pricewise, I'm not sure how the resorts compare, but that was also a factor for us, we didn't want our guests to pay a ridiculous amount of money because we knew they wouldn't come.
I think your best bet would be to contact a TA and find out about pricing for both resorts and also for flights because I know you mentinoned making it affordable for your guests. That would probably be your best starting point.
Both resorts are beautiful and have great staff, so I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

I don't know about Cancun, but I think that Dreams properties are just a little more relaxing and laid back in general- Riu and Melia have more nightlife, like Glenda stated. In Cancun, it's pretty easy to get around using public transportation. The bus is a little scary (across a really busy blind highway drive) in Cabo.

There is a lot of nightlife in Cancun, and the resort is super close to the airport.

I'm a Dreams Cancun bride, and stayed there last October. The resort itself was very quiet at night (granted we were there during the off-season), but you can literally walk 5 minutes out the front door and be in the middle of all the action (bar and clubs). No taxi required. During the day, there are quite a few activities right at the resort...water volleyball, beach volleyball, swimming with the dolphins, kayaks, etc. And the gazebo location is to die for!

See, the problem is that I've never been there. I went to Secrets in the RM this summer and it was really nice, but really boring!!! The whole resort went to be at 10:00. But, it was a big honeymoon/couples resort so maybe that had something to do with it. I just don't want my friends to fly all the way down there and then have nothing to do in the evenings.
The only reason I'm stuck on Dreams is because my parents went there this past summer and came back saying "This is where the wedding has to be!" I'm a little reluctant to take advice about how fun a place is by two middle aged parents :-)
Sorry I'm rambling...so I guess I need to do a little more research into RIU and ME
Just one more question...Sarah (or anyone) you said you went to Dreams last October. How was the weather? I was shooting for the end of October for my wedding and everyone keeps telling me it's still the rainy season, so now I'm scared.
Thanks again everybody
