Need Help Choosing Cabo Resort For 2015 Wedding

Recommended Posts



We'd like to get married July 2015 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. We have narrowed the resorts down to Fiesta Americana and Pueblo Bonito Sunset. Initially we thought Dreams Los cabos was our place, but I do not like the gazebo for the ceremony site. The reviews on both hotels are very confusing and making it too hard to choose.


We want a place with:

-great management/wedding coordinator that we can rely on

-yummy food for our guests to enjoy (all-inclusive for no worries)

-beautiful backdrops for our pictures


We signed up with destinationweddings.com, but patience is not my strong point and I am getting anxious to send out our save the dates.

Any input/recommendations would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks in advance =)

Congrats and welcome to the site! I would definitely recommend that if you don't already have a travel agent, that you get one and talk to them. They generally have visited properties and can advise what their impressions are, as well as feedback from brides that they've dealt with in the past.


I don't know if you're in the US or Canada, but the owners of this site - Wright Travel are destination wedding specialists, and the administrator of this site Tammy is a Cabo bride. I'm sure you could get some insight from them as to which resort would best serve your needs.


The other thing you could do is check out the resort reviews here and see what past brides have said about their experience at each resort, both good and bad. Plus there are also the individual forums for each resort that I'm sure you could get feedback with questions that will help you make a decision.


Good luck and happy planning!!

I am planning on getting married in Cabo in June-July of 2015 as well. We go down there once or twice a year and my only recommendation is that you consider a resort that is on a private beach such as the Playa Grande, Finisterra, Solmar or Grand Solmar. I believe the Pueblo Bonito Sunset is private as well. The resorts on the main beach are beautiful but I would hate to be having my ceremony with everyone on the public beach walking over to watch! Good luck planning!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
