Wonderful! La Playa looks like my front runner too :) I'll be sure to let you know what we think when we get back. I'll try to take a bunch of pics also.

Meagan good luck on your visit. We're getting married at the Westin in February 2010. We chose to get married on the terrace near the arricefes restaurant. My 89 year old grandma and her 92 year old friend will be there so we decided maybe directly on the beach wouldn't be a good idea but I think La Playa is so pretty. I'd love to hear more about your visit and see pictures.

Did everyone else have written into their contracts at the Westin that the full cost of the room would be charged at the time the reservation is made? I'm trying to figure out how to let my guests know that if they stay at the Westin under our block that they will have to pay for their room upfront. It's easy to tell family that but how do I let friends know this? Did anyone have friends that had an issue with that? How did you let everyone know?

PKBride and Meg&Shay - We are scheduled to leave tomorrow for our site visit to Cabo but I am freaking out b/c of the Hurricane which is supposed to hit the area late this evening. I'm not sure if we will even go, if flights will be cancelled, or if the weather passes, how bad the damage will be in the area. I will most definitely report back if we can make the trip, but at this moment it isn't looking good.

We had a great time in Cabo during our site visit! The weather was great, although really warm, and the Westin treated us very well. We were upgraded to a really nice suite and they threw in the Royal Beach club breakfast and cocktails/appetizers every day at no additional cost. We were able to meet with some vendors in person and have a tasting of the food (which was very good - I was impressed).

 

We decided on definitely having the reception at La Playa. Arrecifes is beautiful but I just didn't want to be stressed out about the $10,000 food and beverage minimum. Plus, I also want to be closer to the water.

 

I don't have a WC yet since we haven't signed our contract (hopefully this week) so I have been working with Maira, the sales/conference manager. I did get a chance to meet Juan briefly since there was a wedding there during our visit and he seems very nice. We spoke to a couple of the guests that were there for the wedding and they said he was extremely accomodating.

 

Let me know if there are other details you want. I am still trying to figure out a rehearsal dinner location...

Hey Westin girls, I just wanted to pop my head in and say hello! It's been awhile since I've been on this thread since I got married at the Westin in August of 2008, but I'm still around to answer questions or provide any photos of the grounds/info about the hotel, restaurants etc etc. Just as a reminder, my ceremony was on the beach outside of La Playa, my cocktail hour was on the La Playa terrace, and my reception (dinner) was at La Playa with our DJ and dancing on the La Playa terrace. We also had a separate small ceremony at the Catholic church in San Jose del Cabo if you have any questions about that, too.

Maura - we are having our ceremony on the beach right outside of La Playa, cocktail hour on the terrace, and dinner at La Playa too! Did you have a groom's/rehearsal dinner? If so, did you do that onsite or offsite? Did you host any other events at the Westin like a welcome reception?

Hi Maegan, sounds like your wedding will be just like mine :) I had white table linens with navy blue napkins.

I did not have a groom's or rehearsal dinner, but we did have a welcome dinner offsite for family & very close friends who were in town 2 days before our wedding. I didn't do any of the planning for it as it was a surprise gesture from my husband's aunts & uncles, but it was held at La Tropicana in downtown San Jose del Cabo right off the zocalo. I'd be happy to get you more info if you'd like. We had such a blast and the food was really fabulous–our family did a prearranged fixed price menu with 3 courses (soup or salad to start, arrachera or some kind of white fish for the entree, and two choices for dessert). They had a live band and our party rented out the 2nd floor of the restaurant.

I've heard good things about Tropicana - my fiance and I walked by it when we were in town but did not eat there.

 

How did you transport everyone there?

we didn't -- some of our guests had rented cars and so they just loaded up all the rental cars on their own and everyone else took the van taxis.

    • i was 100% happy with my cake! it was the most amazing cake and when i travel down again i will be requesting a smaller size cake than the one she made me for my 25th anniversary renewal.  I did everything by FB messanger and Paypal! she is on point with her cakes and running her business! I give her 5 Stars and then some! Thank you for making my day amazing!
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
