Staying at Dreams Los Cabos on the Corridor and venture out into the city
Dreams is a FANTASTIC resort. I have travelled all over the world before and seen many beautiful places. I think that Dreams probably had the best service I have ever dealt with in a hotel setting.
I did a lot of research to find the perfect place for my wedding and honeymoon and I am ecstatic with the way things turned out. Our wedding was in their gazebo right near the beach. They have a wedding coordinator at the hotel that helped me organize things, I also brought some things from home to help keep cost down.
The cost of this wedding vs. a traditional one at home was much cheaper to do, and much more beautiful.
We had about 30 guests with us for our wedding as well... and every single one of them are still raving about their trip and our wedding, most are very well travelled. We had 70 year old people, people in their 30's and parents with small children. It really did accomodate EVERYBODY.
The hotel is all -inclulsive and/or time share properties. There are 2 pools, many restaurants, 24 hour room service, etc...
Our wedding was BEAUTIFUL and very well handled with everyone. We had our reception right out between the beach and the main pool. It was very private and absolutely beautiful. I wouldn't have changed a thing.
Food at this place is pretty good for an all - inclusive too. No wristbands to wear and not waiting in line to make reservations. You just go to the restaurant when you are ready to eat and you may have to wait about 5 minutes at most. No problem.
Staff was VERY accomodating and a lot of fun to work with. The grounds are beautiful. Hammocks on the beach and around the pools. Great pool chairs, swim up bars that keep the drinks coming.
I HIGHLY recommend this place and have done lots of research on other places, I think we found a winner!
Be sure to take advantage of all of the honeymooners perks that you get at Dreams. Here is a glimpse of some of the things we had. (We also had another 2 couples of our friends take their honeymoon with us at Dreams, so they got consistent service as well)
1. Rose Petals and Candle set up in the room one night during your stay.
2. 10% discount at the spa
3. Private Candlelit dinner at one of the restaurants- we did ours at Oceana restaurant and had a table next to a fire pit all by ourselves on the sand of the beach, private server, champagne and wonderful food and service.... Fantastic!
One of the other couples that had just got married last month, had their 1st honeymoon (must be nice :) at a Sandals resort in the Bahamas just a couple weeks before attending our wedding and had said that the Dreams Resort was MUCH nicer than Sandals was. More beautiful property, better service, and not as cheezy. Although they said the Sandals resort had better activities right there on the beach that was available to them: jet skis, parasailing, etc...
You have to leave the Dreams Hotel and go into Cabo to experience these things...fyi. There is no swimming on the beach at Dreams, water is too turbulent to swim in but absolutely breath taking to watch the waves come crashing in!
We stayed here for our last night so that we could be a little closer to downtown Cabo and experience more of the city life, restaurants, etc..
The rate was very affordable. Hotel was nice, but not nearly as nice as our room at Dreams. They had several pools but they were a little bit dirty and pool water was cold in all of them except for the heated one... go figure.
Location was very cool, up on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. That was a plus. We also could walk into town, took about 10-15 minutes total probably after walking through the arena.
The only thing that is a little crazy is dealing with the GIANT hill/cliff the hotel is planted on top of. Climbing down the hill was just fine, I just couldn't imagine walking up it. Good thing because the hotel provides a shuttle from the bottom of the hill to the hotels at the top.
After our night in town we took a bicycle taxi and they dropped us off at the bottom of the hill, we hopped in a shuttle van and was dropped off a the door to the hotel... perfect.
We went here for lunch during the day... great to experience and lots of very cool memorabillia available to look at . My husband is a drummer so he had a ball here.
Food was very good and pretty affordable.
We took a shuttle from Dreams to get here, it took about 30 minutes one way. Shuttle cost about $6.00 one way. They pick up and drop off at the Paraiso Mall in the Marina and run on the hour.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. GREAT FOOD... GREAT ATMOSPHERE!
My husband had some sort of special meal combo thing, I just had some nice authentic mexican food. My husband couldn't eat enough of this great food, lobster burritos, coconut shrimp, quesadillas, etc...
They had a mariachi band playing for dinner as well, customer service was excellent...overall a great experience.
If you are staying down the Corridor (The strip of hotels between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo) you MUST make it into Cabo!! It is well worth the shuttle trip.
We had a GREAT time just walking around and shopping (be sure to haggle with the vendors), checking out the bars and restaurants, and walking along the water and marina area. It is worth the time and effort to get out into town and experience life out of the resort.
I didn't know this at all before going to Mexico, I think I am one of the few that do not... but silver in Mexico is very affordable. You will see vendors upon vendors trying to sell you bracelets, jewelry, etc...
Be on the look out for the Taxco 925 stamp that says that it is authentic silver. Although there are certainly forgeries out there.
We both went parasailing for about $65.00 total. Great experience! They take you out by the beautiful arch and "lands end" , being up in the air for that long in such a beautiful atmosphere was breath taking! I highly recommend this activity.
This place is crazy!! It is like an outtake from a Spring Break special or "girls gone wild" video. Lots of fun, lots of energy, lots of people.
You can also swim on this beach which is one of the few areas in Cabo San Lucas that you can do that.
Vendors galore, loud music, water taxis, jet skis, boats, etc...
One of the cool restaurants on the Medano Beach is called THE OFFICE. There are tables (with umbrellas for shade) right there on the sand of the beach. Great atmosphere, great food, affordable prices.
WATER TAXIS/Glass Bottom Boat:
For about $10 we took one out to the arch to check everything out and sailed through giant schools of baraccuda as well as saw the sea lion colonies and a dolphin jumping up out of the water.
The whole trip was about 30 minutes and well worth the money!
