DREAMS LOS CABOS RESORT - ALL INCLUSIVE LUXURY IN CABO'S TOURIST CORRIDORDreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa is easy to get to, hard to leave. Located mid-way between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, this ocean-front resort is just as gorgeous as the land that surrounds it. From the time you arrive and spot your name posted on a welcome board near the bellman’s kiosk, you just know this is going to be something special. Once greeted by a porter who quickly checks your bags, you’re led to the front desk where both warm smiles and cold champagne flow freely. Minutes later you’re escorted through arched corridors to your room, champagne glass in hand. If you’re like me, the first thing you do is walk to the balcony to see what you can see. I liked what I saw... nothing but beach and clean, blue water that goes on for miles and miles.
The architecture melds open-air hacienda and colonial Mexican design into a golden seaside gem. Stout columns frame marble floored corridors accented with waterscapes and lush landscaping, rich woods and unique artworks. Everywhere you look there are arches. From the impressive entrance to the front desk, they engage the eyes and call attention to fountains, palm trees... and at night, gas braziers that paint the surroundings with dancing flames. Multi-colored lighting bathes the grounds in warm and exotic hues. It all comes together to create an elegant and relaxing atmosphere.
Dreams Los Cabos has a total of 308 suites, all of which afford guests ocean views. The décor is bright and understated with first-class furnishings and upscale amenities such as robes and slippers, a welcome fruit basket and more champagne on ice – an impressive feat as we were several hours late yet the ice had just begun to melt. Management is focused on pampering their guests and have assembled a well-trained and courteous staff to accomplish the task.
Suites range from Juniors that offer one king or two double beds, a sitting area with sofa and coffee table and a writing table with high-speed data ports for those that need to keep in touch or check on business issues. The next level up is the resort’s Luxury Suites with all of the amenities of the Junior Suite but with a separate living room with dining area. Continue up the scale and you’ll find Honeymoon Suites, Governor Suites, Corner Suites, two bedroom Master Suites and the crème de la crème - Presidential Suites with two or three bedrooms, courtyard entrances and as many as three terraces.
Dreams Los Cabos is an all-inclusive resort, an ever-growing segment of the Cabo resort scene, and does all-inclusive in a grand manner. Unlike most other all-inclusive resorts, the all-inclusive concept here even carries over to the in-room bar. No airline mini-bottles or cheap, off-brand libations ever make it into the rooms. If you’re looking for an afternoon pick-me-up or a before dinner drink, you need not venture from your room as both liquor and mixers are full-sized, top shelf and part of the package. Staff members replenish both the bar and the in-room refrigerator daily. The usual accoutrements can also be found in-room including coffee maker, iron and ironing board, plus a plethora of luxury toiletries in the marble and tile bathroom.

Dinner means even more options as both Himitsu – serving Pan Asian cuisine – and Portofino – serving Italian specialties – serve dinner nightly until 10:00 or 11:00 PM. Looking for a little romance? The staff will arrange dinner on the sand with Tiki torches and candles. Still not enough options for you? Twenty-four hour room service is just a phone call away.
In addition to the wide variety of fare conjured up by the staff at Dreams, theme parties, nightly live music and an outdoor movie screen add to the mix. If you’re old enough to remember the good old days when drive-in movies were part of American culture, you’re in for a real treat. Lay back in a padded chaise lounge, order a cocktail and enjoy a good movie while under the stars. Just know that it’s not always easy to keep your eyes on the screen when what surrounds you is as beautiful as the night sky in Los Cabos.
ACTIVITIES FOR ADULTS AND KIDS
On-site, the resort has a variety of things to do to pass the time including a bungee jumper, aerobics classes, full gym and fitness center and a host of game courts that dot the premises from tennis to volleyball and croquet. Off-site activities can be arranged by the helpful concierge staff and include hiking and mountain biking, golf, ATV tours and sightseeing.
Children are not forgotten at Dreams with the Explorer’s Club for Kids. The fully supervised program is designed to entertain and enlighten the younger crowd. Activities change daily and are not only fun but educational as well. Children explore the worlds of science and nature and are encouraged to take part in such events as weekly campouts in tents at the club. Parents can rest easy knowing that their children are safe and secure - the resort even supplies a pager so that getting in touch with a parent is fast and easy should the need arise.
For many, all the recreation wanted is the simple pleasure of sunbathing poolside and that group will not be disappointed. Dreams Los Cabos has three picture-perfect pools – two with swim up bars – are a sun worshippers paradise. Pool service is very attentive and the lush gardens that surround them are just spectacular. If it gets a little too hot, grab a pool float.
After a long day of tanning, golf or fishing, nothing rejuvenates like a little time in the spa. From facials to massage to Salt Glow skin therapy, the Spa at Dreams is ready, willing and able to pamper even the most discriminating traveler. If the tanning wore you out and you can’t leave your room, that’s okay, they’ll come to you.
As a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Dreams Los Cabos sets a high standard and does not fail to meet it, in fact, it exceeded my expectations and that is no small undertaking. Beautiful architecture, outstanding staff, well appointed rooms and a great deal of attention to detail make this place a dream, just not one that I wish to wake from anytime soon.
