riu or marquis??

going to cabo for the first time and have booked the marquis,but now i'm second guessing myself as that we'd like to be closer to a swimming area and to town for walking distance. totally confused,

but hear not so great and not so bad reviews on the riu and have no TA reviews on the marquis. can anyone help? I will be on my honeymoon in June.

IMO of the two Marquis is the superior property. It is on the corridor some distance from Cabo. Check out the Baja California forum (above) for reviews. Renting a car would give you the best of both worlds. Rui would be a long walk from town as well.

From Amontoya's previous posts, she/he is pretty familiar with the luxury resorts in Cabo. I've seen both and stayed at RIU. Would definitely honeymoon at the Marquis.

You should definately stay at the Marquis. They don't even compare. You are of course going to spend more money on food, drink, and rental car. You won't care about a swimming area once you see the pools at the marquis; it is like you are in the ocean.

It is a great honeymoon hotel.

Just got back from the RIU, I haven't seen the Marquis but I would definitely go anywhere but the RIU for a honeymoon.

That's not to say we didn't have a good time, we did, there were just a lot of children not being supervised by there parents. ICK

I'll do a report on the RIU shortly.
