I was just married at Dreams in Feb and the beaches were beautiful.
Actually, they have two very nice private beaches where you don't get vendors or people from other resorts hanging out there.
One is perfect for swimming.
The one on the tower side is a little rougher so you can only go out so far.
This is where the gazebo is and the water hitting the rocks is very cool.

My honeymoon hotel in Playa del Carmen didn't have a beach anymore, but we didn't have the need for a beach then and you walked down a bit and there was a public beach.

This is the best I got from the beaches -

This first pic is from Riu Cancun, you can see Dreams on the end..it had the best beach. I'm guessing the north beaches of Cancun weren't affected as bad as the other beaches along the western coast:

Here's the beach from Riu Palace Las Americas:

Here's the beach from Oasis Cancun..most beaches look like this. Seems they lost more than 20ft. of sand:

I said that because from what I've seen, their beach or beaches look really small.

Wow, they look quite a bit different from when I was last there in August 2003.

I was also there in April 2003 and there was a lot of beach.. sad.gif I was shocked when I went back this year and saw what was left of the beaches. Fortunately for Dreams brides, where its located, theres not much damage. My WC emailed me pics of the beach at my resort.. I think I'm safe enough for a beach ceremony but I'm going to check at my next site visit in May.

I was in Puerto Morelos in February (at the Paradisus) and the beaches were in good shape.

I guess it depends which beach you're talking about, one of the beaches is rather large, the ones on the tower side are smaller, but you really wouldn't want to swim over there anyway. Most people hang out at the pool, so the beach is never crowded.

I think the beaches there were beautiful and dreams is a smaller resort, so there really isn't a need for miles of beach.

last time I was there was 2000. The beaches are significantly smaller but looks like from the reviews of Dreams I should be OK.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
