I'm making a return visit to Cabo with our 7 yr. old and looking at new AI options to stay at. Have enjoyed the Hyatt Ziva but will have just been there a few months earlier. Loved my overall stay at Secrets (in Cabo) so would be interested/willing to give Dreams a try since we have the child. (As of this posting I have not yet tried any Dreams but will be staying at the one in Puerto Vallarta later this month). Paradisus by Melia seems to get high marks and is comparable as far as price. Things we look for is overall high quality of food, good service, cleanliness, perhaps some daily/nightly activities, pool space and a kids club for the option of popping in for an activity or two during the day; we don't use it as a drop off day-care center. Beach access is a bonus but not mandatory.
Would love to hear any comments re. the pros and cons between the two, similarities and differences. Thanks.
