        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.

                you can find pictures of the ballrooms (in the convention center) on page 2 of the Dreams Tulum thread (it's a sticky in the Mayan Riviera area)

                      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.
