Plus how do you get such detailed answers from them? I really want to know everything about my wedding, like what flowers I'll have to choose from, and what the cake will look like... getting antsy about the details! Thanks.
    I went through a period a few months back where I was getting no responses at all so I asked my TA if she could help me out. I ended up getting a response back from Landy so from then on, I sent any questions I had to both Sandra & Landy.

    Up until I got my response from Sandra yesterday, I was only getting responses from Landy with maybe one or two lines from Sandra in a separate email. I'm told though that Sandra is extremely overworked and it has been the busier wedding months that I've been trying to communicate with them. It seems to have slowed down now as I'm getting better and more detailed responses.

    I find that asking very specific questions in a numbered format gets the best & most concise response from both Sandra & Landy.

    I suspect that they've had lots of experience with brides changing their minds so they're hesitant to plan the fine details with you until closer to the date. They will send you pics of ceremony sites, reception sites/setup, flowers, cakes and menus for the reception & cocktail hour if you ask.

    I didn't really like the cake & flower options though so I sent pics of what I had in mind to see if they could do that for me. As mentioned in my previous post - I'm still working on the flowers ($350USD on top of the pkg is a little out of my budget).

      I would definitely wait until you get there to pick the wedding area. Sandra or Landy will walk you around the property and show you the best places. Seriously I stressed about the whole "wait until you get here to pick everything", but it's really the way to go.

      We had 30 guest, and we all went to the Disco after the wedding. It was a BLAST!! Also, if I'm thinking correctly the Friday beach party was over by the time our reception was over at 10:30....but I may be wrong.
      I am helping my cousin research Dreams Tulum for a spring wedding. You indicated you went to the disco. Is that on site, or did you have to leave the resort and go elsewhere. One of the reasons she's considering ruling out Dreams is she wants to have a "party" and had read somewhere that the DJ has to be done by 10:30 and the resort in general is quiet after that time (meaning there are no other bars are places on site to continue to party if we have to shut the DJ down at 10:30. She is planning a large group - @ 150 people.

        Yes, the DJ has to be done by 10:30 p.m. They will not stay later even if you pay extra. I'm sure it's because they do not want to be loud and disturb other guest if they're trying to sleep.

        The disco is on site at the bottom level of the lobby. If I remember correctly, they closed down around 2:00 the night of our wedding - which was Friday night. They close around midnight during the week. I must add, the disco is what you make of it. It was very boring when we went in there during the week, but when we took all our guests there the night of our wedding, we picked out all the music and took over the dance floor. We all had alot of fun that night!

            We did not, but we met another couple while we were there that got married in the chapel. It was really nice. It will only hold around 30 though, so if you have a large group, it will not work.

                I saw some pictures of a reception on the beach but there was some sort of bar/restaraunt that was completely open except for a roof I believe. I would love to have my reception in this exact place..anybody know where it was??

                Anyone that had the beach ceremony....did you pick out the set up?? I haven't heard back from Sandra in awhile...I sent in all my info to reserve the date.....I'm usually a patient person..but I'm just worried b/c I'm ready to get my STDs out!

                  I think you're talking about Sea Side Grill. I had mine at El Patio. Here's some pics if this is the one you're talking about...I don't have a pic of Sea Side...sorry.

                  We did have a beach wedding and were able to pick out the set up and location of the ceremony. Sandra took us around the property at our meeting and showed us the popular areas. I would recommend you wait until you get there to pick the location of the ceremony. You might change your mind once you get there...

                    Can I ask those of you in the planning stages a question? I've just wandered through the Dreams Tulum site and not found any reference to a wedding coordinator or person to contact. I'm interested in a site visit, but don't know who to talk with! Can someone PM me to send contact info? And if any of you have done a site visit, could you tell me if they gave you any kind of discounted rates during your stay?

                    Thanks!!!
