    Occidental vs riu all inclusive

    I need help figuring out which resort to stay in. I'd love your opinions and feedback about both places. I plan on going in the middle of October for my honeymoon. We love being by the pool and the beach and catching the sun and getting a tan. Also love to do lots of water activities.

    click link for a couple of tagged threads. occidental vs riu

    and this
    occidental questions
    the riu is gorgeous, the pool area has little or no shade.
    the resort is magnificent looking albeit out of place with its style in the area.

    the occidental is gorgeous as well and gets rave reviews.

    i would also check in to the radisson and their partial all inclusive package.

    mcm tours does a great job of planning, give them a call here is their web site

    The exact reason my dh refuses to stay at either and we have stayed at the Tamarijn four times instead.

    I know the Riu in Cabo was faily laid back with the policy. They had stated dress pants - but they had no problem with me wearing a decent pair of jeans. Long pants at a nicer restaurant is what I always do anyway. If we go out for pizza or something, I stick with the shorts.
