Q: What are the challenges brides face when planning their destination wedding at your resort?
A: As we do only 1 wedding per day we haven’t had inconveniences with venues or availability, we can confirm venues and availability before planning. However one of our challenges is the weather, this is something that we cannot control. fortunately we have ballrooms and are always prepared with a plan B. It is our responsibility to keep the couple informed and calm.
Q: What compliments do brides typically give about the resort?
A: The typical compliment is that we exceed their expectations and that we make them feel stress-free.
Q: What is your favorite part of a destination wedding?
A: To be honest I love all of the process. To me it is very exciting when I start the communication, when a contract is signed, when I meet them in person, when I see them happy and their entire group. There are a lot of feelings for example: people that travel out of the country for the first time, the presence of grandparents, family and friends that come from a long way to share that moment with the wedding couple. There is a lot of love, and emotions in the middle.
The end of the wedding is a very satisfactory moment and also the moment of the check-out when you say bye to your new friends. It is very exciting when the couple comes back for their anniversary and consider you as a family member.
Q: Can you tell us an anecdote about one of your brides when you saved the day?
A: We have this repeat couple that come every year to the resort, two or three times in a year.
They chose Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos as their wedding venue. We love them at the resort.
They had 4 days of their event, with private check in, welcome Mexican party, country night, the wedding day and a brunch the day after the wedding. The first two nights were perfect, fantastic events with lot of décor, music, special details and happy guests. Until then the weather was perfect.
But on the wedding day it was cloudy when we checked the weather forecast, that day was a rainy day.
The wedding couple had a beautiful event designed and they wanted to wait until the last minute to decide between moving to a ballroom or keeping the event on the beach. It was a hard time because of all the production, we couldn’t wait until the last minute.
We had to cover one of the terraces close to the ballroom and adapt all the design to the terrace. There were more details with some boxes with décor that she shipped to the hotel one month prior and didn’t get there until the wedding day. At the end everything went nice and smoothly. When she was walking to the aisle the sun came out. At the end they were very grateful for all we did and they still come every 4 months.

“It was a beautiful location with multiple pools and a variety of food. We were served lunch at the pool from 3 different menus. We were able to watch the whales as they migrated to Alaska. You could see them from the workout room while running on the treadmill, as well as the pool and beach. The infinity pool is beautiful. The rooms are a little dated, but that’s not what I go for anyways. The staff was always very accommodating! The food and drinks were good. We loved it for the all inclusive price we paid.” – Amy B. 4/19

“Highly recommend!! This resort is fantastic with beautiful views, top of the line pools, and the ocean really close by. They had an event every night and they also had a campfire which also had entertainment. At the pool, they played music and they also had fun activities. I would recommend getting all inclusive because it was easier and it adds to the vacations relaxing vibes. The drinks were excellent, and the food was mostly good. The service is what made this resort! This resort had very good service and they were very friendly.” – Hailey Y. 7/17
“The view as you drive up of the Sea of Cortez is stunning. The service from the time you step on property is professional and very accommodating. The food at ALL locations is awesome. Three beautiful pools and the bar service supporting them is second to none. There are activities and entertainment at night that is great and they begin to shut down nightly at 2300, so everyone has a relaxing experience for bed time. Good, fishing, golfing, spa and other activities close. WE will be going back to this very beautiful,warm and relaxing location. Highly recommend!” – Lance E. 7/17
