The new Dreams Tulum thread! (Post all DT Qs&As here)

Recommended Posts

from what I've seen on the Dreams website, the baby sea turtle release is done from the pacific side, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta.

As for cupcakes, I just wrote on here a couple days ago.....they don't do them. I've read about a cafe called Turtle Bay Cafe which will deliver and does do cupcakes. I'm currently trying to find out how much that would be!

Hey girls, I was wondering if anyone had the new 2011 wedding guide.  I just wanted to check it out and see what the differences are from what I'm using when I booked and thought I'd check here before emailing Aurora, knowing my luck she'll try to raise the price on me.

thanks so much! you've done great research! sorry i missed your msg about the cupcake, let me know when you find out their prices. would that be another "outside" vendor fee?! ive already hired a photographer.

If you manage to get your hands on it, do you mind passing it to me as well?  In every email, Landy has been sure to mention that the rates are for 2010 and may go up in 2011 which leaves me thinking that they WILL go up.  Small differences I can live with, but it would be nice to not have to wonder!  I'll let you know if I come across the info as well :)

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one wanting cupcakes....I was so disappointed when they said they couldn't do them, b/c I'm pretty sure I read on one of the other dreams resorts threads that someone had cupcakes, and it was done by the resort! I'll keep you posted when I hear back from turtle bay....if it's too much we may just stick with the cake, since its part of the package. I couldn't tell you for sure, but since it would be just a delivery of the cupcakes, I wouldn't think it would be another outside vendor fee....but then they really nickel and dime you, so i could be completely off base!


we've potentially just hired a photographer.....our photographer here in Halifax who is doing our engagement photos, just happens to be heading down to cancun for the month of Feb. So we're keeping our fingers crossed that it all works out! Who did you hire?

I know this has surely been covered but I'm not ambitious enough to start searching through the thread.....before I get to ahead of myself I want to make sure that you are allowed to bring an outside photographer to Dreams.....and what is the outside vendor fee??? Please and thank you :)

What is everyone doing for flowers?  Using the flowers from the resort or ordering elsewhere?  Trying to decide if we should use the flowers from the resort since they are offered in the packages or order somewhere else or do real touch flowers???? Decisions decisions!!

I ordered real touch flowers from Angels Accents.  I got all my bouquets, bouts, and extra flowers for decor from her.  I will still use the flower arrangements that come with my package and will use the bouquet the resort provides as my toss bouquet.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
