Sandos Finisterra Brides
Posted 09 November 2014 - 10:45 AM
I am in the middle of my pre-wedding visit to the Sandos Finisterra and I have to say the resort is in GOOD shape and they are working very fast to patch up damage from Odile. I will post pictures when I get home on Tuesday. The pools are in great condition and the beach looks good too. The resort is fixing up the big waterfall in the front of the resort as it looks like the faux stone was damaged by Odile. I have to say that I think at this point there are more workers than guests and they are working hard. If I were to come to the resort not knowing a hurricane hit 2 months ago I would just thing the hotel was doing some minor renovations. All of the restaurants are functioning as are all of the bars and the resort seems to be back to their normal entertainment schedule. On Friday we attended a white party on the beach where they had a nice buffet and fire dancers and yesterday they had a fun Michael Jackson show. On Friday we also met with Lupita, the DJ Abel and our outside WC. We went over all of our wedding plans and we had our tasting which was fantastic. Yesterday we met with Elsa and my WC, Maria Jose, at Linens, Things and More to go over the table designs and other wedding decor. I was also able to meet with Suzanne Morel at her salon. I thoughr all of the folks I have met with have been incredible. This morning we had our engagement photoshoot with Gilda Badillo (I LOVE HER), at Lovers Beach and Medano Bay. It is interesting to see some of the changes in the landscape of Cabo after Odile as Lovers Beach was a lot smaller since Odile as I think the hurricane change the water level on the beach. We did tour Cabo and there is still damage which is being addressed, but it would not stop me from getting married here. Coming back to Cabo after Odile has been an amazing trip.

That's good news, and especially for the brides with weddings coming up! I'm just happy to hear that things are improving because we love Cabo. That's a shame about Lovers Beach though. I don't know if it would be the water level as much as probably the storm surge swept sand away. It's unfortunately what the hurricanes usually do - erode the beaches. The other side of Mexico has had it happen a number of times too. We always fail to recognize the power of Mother Nature. I really hope there has been help for the people of Cabo in their rebuilding process as well. How did you find the airport? I heard it was an absolute disaster.
I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

Hi Michelle, I'm in the process of booking my wedding with Sandos and I have some questions, for the use of vendors were there additional fees? Even the Dj and Photographers that were provided through the hotel? If you could please let me know that would be great. I would love to pick your brain on all your wedding details.
