Pros: On-site wedding planner, beautiful photography
Cons: Wish we could extend time longer than 10PM on beach
We got married at Dreams Tulum on March 18,2017 and I cannot say anything bad about our experience. Yesenia García was our wedding planner and did such a beautiful job in executing what we visioned for our wedding. She was so easy to work with, always replied to our emails in a timely manner, and went the extra mile to make our wedding perfect. My husband and I felt special from the moment we arrived to the day we left. If you are planning a destination wedding here you will not be disappointe

Pros: beautiful resort, cozy intimate wedding chapel, great food and drinks
Cons: anything 'additional' is extremely overpriced (ex: $350 for a couples massage at the spa)
We had our ceremony at Dreams Tulum on October 16, 2016. We had the ceremony in the chapel and reception on the beach. Overall it was a great experience. Here are my reviews.     Resort: B+ The resort is beautiful and well maintained. Even the most basic grade rooms (garden view) are very nice. The layout of the buildings is a bit confusing; the way the buildings are labeled and identified doesn't correspond with room numbers so some of our guests had a hard time finding their rooms. Check i

Pros: Wedding Coordinator
Cons: nothing
We got married on April 15, 2016.  We had 30 people and did the Ultimate Wedding Package.   From day 1, Yesenia was prompt and easy to communicate with via email.  At the end of the day, you get a "look book" about 2 months prior to the day and you go through and pick your options.  She responded quickly when i had upgrade questions.   Check in was a breeze and everyone was pretty close to each other based on category of room (ocean view or garden view Jr Suites).  All rooms were beautiful a
Hola! Following is an extensive review of my all-inclusive vacation at Dreams Tulum. I'll start off by admitting that this has been my one and only all-inclusive vacation and both my husband and my first trip to Mexico. We were married on August 9th, 2014 and we flew from Calgary, AB to Cancun on August 4th; returning one week later on August 11th. We had approximately 26 guests total and most everyone flew from Calgary (the exceptions were my Mom and her husband who flew from Toronto and one
Pros: Food, Hair, Chapel,
Cons: Pricey extras, pay for privacy,
We married October 19, 2013 at Dreams Tulum. Overall I was very happy with the wedding . I have tried to cover most everything, but let me know if there is something I forgot.   Planning before arrival at the resort (B-) I was a little concerned because email was touch and go. Sometimes I would get a response in a week...sometimes it was two or three. It seemed like a lot of extras were a little ridiculously priced. $6 for a tea light is insane...I also had to argue a little to get some of w

Pros: Access to chapel and ballroom, no wristbands, no limit on alacarte restaurants
Cons: Long drive from airport, VIP concierge, World Buffet randomly closes, some food poisoning
Wedding:  7/26/13   **I'm having trouble adding photos right now.  When I figure it out, I'll add them in my comments section!**   Travel Agent: In the industry I used to work in, I had met Judy and Maria of Coatesville, PA (http://judyandmariastravel.com/).  I worked with Maria throughout the wedding planning process.  If it wasn’t for her, I likely would have chosen a different resort.  I gave her my top 3 and she steered me toward DT, saying “I know Alex there, he’ll take care

Pros: Beach, DJ, reception
We got married at Dreams Tulum on June 15, 2013 at 5 pm.  We had 43 people who all stayed at the resort.  The wedding was truly the best part of the whole trip.  We purchased the Ultimate Dream package.  I did pay around $2,000 in extras, but it was in my budget.  My friend married us so I have no review on their officiant.  We rented to the sound system for the wedding, which if you are getting married on the beach I recommend. We put our songs on an iPhone and he didn't miss a beat with them. 
Pros: Staff, location
Cons: Food
This is my review for our destination wedding at Dreams Tulum in Mexico. We arrived Sunday the 5th and our wedding was held the following Saturday. All in all everything went pretty well, there were a few bumps along the way that I decided to live with. Our wedding was beautiful, but all in all I’m not sure I would have my wedding here again if I knew then what I know now. If you’re having your wedding here, don’t stress, the staff is very nice and everything will be gorgeous! Customs: I was

Arrival There were 20 people in our group and coming from all across Canada.  The shuttle from the airport felt long as Dreams Tulum was the last stop. Upon arrival we were greeted with champagne and my mother excitedly screaming for us. Check in went smoothly. We got upgraded to an ocean view.    Rooms Most of my guests were staying in the Garden View rooms which are back of the resort.  All the rooms were fairly big. Some of my guests could smell a musty smell in their rooms from t

Pros: everything
Cons: communication
Hello! Here is my review for Dreams Tulum. Our wedding was October.23 2012, we flew from Edmonton AB on Oct.20 and flew back Oct.27. We had about 30 guests for our wedding most from Alberta and BC. I will try my best to give honest feedback and reviews about everything we experienced with the resort.   First I just want to say thank you so much for the wonderful creators and contributors to this website, it really was a life saver. All of the time and dedication everyone has made for t

Pros: The resort is gorgeous, the staff are wonderful, the wedding coordinators know their stuff.
As I'm copying this over, I'm realizing how bloody long it is. Sorry for the length, but for fellow Type A-ers, here you go!   Travel Agency After our first attempt with a typical storefront travel agency was slightly disastrous, we found the online travel agency iTravel 2000 and were assigned Sandra Momesso to handle our group bookings. She was super quick to get back to everyone and was really well organized, not to mention her prices came in a few hundred cheaper than our first trave

Pros: Scenery, staff, food, everything...
Cons: Few small things...
Dreams Tulum review   Firstly let me just say after all the hotels I have been in to in the world Dreams Tulum far exceeded all my expectations and more. Choosing a hotel to marry in, comes with a lot of pressures, especially when you are taking over twenty people with you to stay in said resort. Well I needn’t have worried it was an amazing hotel, and an almost perfect wedding.   Check in C   The airport passport control is a nightmare took us almost an hour and a half to get
Pros: everything wedding, food, entertainment related
Cons: internet and spa
My then fiancé and I travelled to Dreams Tulum from Nov 5-12th for our wedding with 20 family & friends. We had a wonderful time – being our 1st stay at an all-inclusive and our 1st time in Mexico, it far surpassed all expectations that we ever had. Here are some of the areas where the resort was amazing, and a couple of helpful recommendations for future travelers (and brides!).   Wedding – 10 out of 10. The resort planners that I worked with (primarily Aurora via email, and then

Pros: Beach Front Wedding, Family Friendly, Tulum Ruins
Cons: An hour from airport, front desk check in unorganized
I got married at the Dreams Tulum on July 5th, 2011.  We did the Ultimate Wedding Package.  We had 32 guests.  Beach Front ceremony and reception. I'll start from the beginning.  We used a travel agent who went through Apple Vacations to book the wedding.  The transportation from the airport to the resort was through Apple.  They were waiting there with a charter bus to take us to the resort, there were no other passengers other than the ones from the wedding, it was great.  It took about

Here you go ladies! I just want everyone to know that i could have gone down there and didn't plan/stress about a single thing! ( too bad as a woman i did) lol. But just know that it was amazing having all our friends and family together to celebrate! Don't worry about anything because the resort literally has everything taken care of, they probably did at least 15-20 wedding within the 9 days of us being down there, with that said, they are totally great at their job of making it a smooth day f

We just got married at Dreams Tulum on June 11, 2011.  We had 47 guests, seven of which stayed off site and were required to buy half day passes.  Dreams Tulum was a lovely resort.  The grounds are very well manicured and we only had a few hiccups.  The air conditioning broke in the main restaurants one night, making dinner a very hot uncomfortable affair.  A few people changed rooms due to weird smells--the newer part of the resort is definitely way better than old.  The mosquitos were brutal t

Pros: activity staff, pools, food
Cons: rocky beach, slow email responses
I can’t believe I’m now writing a review! I want to go back and do it all over again! We just got back from spending 2 weeks in Mexico the first week at Dreams which was fabulous from the moment we got there. Here it goes...   Travel – C             We used a local travel agent and he was awful! The worst experience ever the only thing that made it worth it was that we got $50 off our cost for each guest that booked 7 nights.  Other than that he was horrible at responding, he was not or

Finally time for my review....I haven't even done my planning thread yet! Thank you to all you former brides, future brides, moderators etc for the posts on this site. I got so many ideas, inspirations and encouragement from you all. It really was a site where I spent large parts of my day. Here goes! We just arrived back from our 2 week vacation, which began with our wedding at the DT resort. I have to say, I had a growing amount of anxiety in the weeks leading up to our departure. I

Pros: honeymoon suite, resort photographer, DJ Doremixx, resort food
Cons: resort's employees, weather, flowers
OVERVIEW: We were married at Dreams Tulum Monday, June 28th, 2010 with a total of 51 guests. Anabel was our wedding coordinator though we corresponded with Aurora leading up to our arrival at Dreams Tulum. It rained for 3 out of the 5 days our guests were there due to Tropical Storm Alex but the rain held off for the wedding day (though we had TERRIBLE winds) and we had great weather for the 4 days we remained at the resort post wedding. SUMMARY OF OUR EXPERIENCE: C The best lesson we learned

Antonio, our bell boy was kind and explained the layout of our room. DH p
