SunBride's insanely long DREAMS TULUM wedding review and pictures

Recommended Posts

Wow!! This is the best review!! Dreams Tulum is now my number one choice.. (This changes on a weekly basis) I just have a few questions. I'm sorry if you have already answered any of them. If you don't know the answers, no worries.


Does Dreams cater to bigger weddings?? We are expecting around 40+ not huge, but big for a beach wedding.


Do you have to pay extra if you have a big group?


How long in advance did you book the resort??


Was it pricey for your family to fly there?


I think that's it for now. Thank you for helping me make my choice!!

if you haven't done so yet, check out the Dreams Tulum thread (which coincidentally I created!), it will answer so many of your questions. It's a sticky in this forum (Mayan riviera forum) so it's at the top.


Yes they cater to bigger weddings. If you go to the Bride List on page one of the Dreams Tulum thread, you can see how many guests the other brides are having. Many are having more than 40.


You pay a fee dinner if you have more than 20 (the first 20 are free). Depending on the dinner option it would be 20$ (to eat off regular menu), 55$ (special silver menu) or 65$ (special gold menu).


I personally only booked my date 3 months ahead of time and had no problem, as things were pretty open for end of March and first week of April. It all depends on the season. There appears to be tons of weddings in November and May. People are having trouble booking May 2009, the whole entire month is almost full!


As stated in my review it cost my family members 1500$ from Ottawa or 1600$ from Halifax with Air Canada Vacations. This was booked semi-last minute (approx 3 months before). I likely would have paid maybe 200$ more to book a year or so in advance. Also since you are in Vancouver the price for you would likely be higher. But it also depends on what time of year you go - November is a popular month for weddings but it's also a pretty cheap time for package prices from Canada.

They were from the Sears catalogue. They were never available in store, only in the catalogue. They sold out very quickly though, we had trouble getting the right sizes.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
