Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Ladies you're making me worry for you, I feel so bad this gazebo renovation has made you question your choice in resorts!! Dreams Cancun isn't the fanciest but the setup and location is ideal. The size is perfect as you'll always run into someone from your party so they always feel included. The resort itself isn't a party spot but if you have a fun group you can make your own party. Plus if there are couples there they might just want a relaxing vacation environment, not every night needs to be a party. It's so close to all the action for those that do want to go clubbing they have many options, I highly recommend Bulldog, we had a blast. If you can work out a deal to get your group in there for a decent rate then that's perfect. Everyone at Dreams really tries to insure you have a great time and they provide excellent service, they'll take care of you. Don't worry about your group having fun, if they can't have fun in that beautiful location then something's wrong with them, not with your planning!!

Seriously...this forum is so great!! Although I am still worried about my choice, you girls sure do know how to make a person feel better. I definitley wouldn't talk to any of my friends that are coming about this because I don't want to make them have any doubts...but to be able to chat to other brides who have been down this road before makes it easier!!

 

Thanks so much for your input:) I'm going to stick with what i've chosen & if my guests don't have a good time there then maybe they are just being hard to please. Its all about my FI & I and celebrating with the ones we love...+ the weather in cancun HAS to be better then the weather in Canada in October...lol

 

You girls are the best!!!!

this is ridiculous! Why are you constructing a new gazebo?? I wish I can get money back. I'm getting married in May. I really hope it would be done. Although it is not as nice as the old one.

i'll say it again girls, the appeal of the gazebo was always its location, not the gazebo itself. your weddings will be amazing and beautiful, rest assured! you will no longer have to worry about chipping/peeling paint and dangling wires showing in your pictures! of course these are things i didn't notice AT ALL on wedding day (and only noticed in pics after being nit-picky) ... on wedding day i didn't notice ... they were the furthest thing from my mind, as i'm sure any gazebo imperfections will be on your day. love.gif

 

and i guarantee your guests will all think it's beautiful, no matter what the gazebo looks like. most people haven't been to a DW before, and the experience/location just blows them away. cheesy.gif

check out the dangling wires behind us ... we don't seem to mind, lol (could we look any happier?)! later, those wires drove me insane bc they are dangling behind our heads in every single gazebo pic!

and for those of you who are bummed the palapas are coming off the terrace, look at the gross, chipping paint job on the tops of them as seen in this pic of my father/daughter dance! i guarantee you won't miss them. wink.gif

We were just thinking that we'd like to have one of those rooms so there is enough room for our friends/family to come hang out if it rains etc...

Does anyone have a picture of the two level room or honeymoon suite...so i can compare?

Thanks!!
I went on a site visit and saw both the honeymoon suite and the jr suite, I recommend the jr suite its all the same except for the jacuzzi in the jr suite. Make sure its in the towers

meldal, i never saw the two level honeymoon suite while i was there (that's in the pyramid building), but we had the junior jacuzzi suite in the tower and it was plenty big enough to have people come back to the room to hang out. and honestly, i think it would better serve a party atmosphere because everyone would be on one level, kwim? in the videos link that chipotle posted, the junior suite is in the first video.

Thanks!! I looked through the videos as well & was thinking about upgrading to that one. Its a Junior Jacuzzi Suite?? Thats all the room we'll need. I just wanted some seating other then the bed.

yeah, junior jacuzzi suite in the tower. the balcony is pretty large too (that's where the jacuzzi is) and has a small table and a couple chairs out there too. also, if you get a room in the tower, there is breakfast every morning right downstairs in the lobby area ... not as extensive as the buffet at world cafe, but definitely great to be able to just roll downstairs, eat something on the terrace, and hit the small infinity pool. oh, and there's a bar down there too. wink.gif

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
