My daughter decided to plan a wedding without much notice. There were 9 people attending the wedding (including the bride and groom). The wedding planner did a great job!! She catered to my daughter's every need and then some. The perks for the bride and groom were more than we thought we would get (champagne). The bride and grooms room at the end of the night was decorated beautifully.
The sit down supper for the wedding was a fun time. The waiter at the Mexican Restaurant attended to our needs in a very efficient manner (I am so sorry I cannot remember his name). He was very respectful of the bride and groom and he was also quite funny -- interacting with everyone at our table. He is a huge asset to the resort. The waitress that brought our drinks was also very good. Of all the dinners during our stay this was one of the best and was very memorable due to the waiter and waitress.
Overall the food at the resort was not great. Everything seemed to be overcooked.
Breakfast were okay. We were in Riu in Los Cabos and food was much better there.
Waiters at the bars were not very personable even when we tipped.
We did have one waiter one day that served us drinks at the pool-- he was friendly and making some great tips.
The hotel is Very Clean.
The weather was great. Normally I would not rate this hotel as a 4-- but due to the pampering and the attention that was given to my daughter by the wedding planner I have. The wedding planner does derserve a 10!! Thank you for a memorable day and stay.
