    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 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.. 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.

              Awesome! Do you know if you were near the Excellence Riviera?

                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.

                  Hmm, my bad. Do you have any photos of the bigger 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.
