Did you perform a site visit prior to deciding on this resort?
What made you choose this resort over Dreams Riviera Cancun?
Are you planning on providing transportation to your guests from the Airport to the resort?
Hi Vanessa. Welcome to the forum. My wedding was originally planned for 9/26/10 at dreams riviera cancun. We were fortunate to get a great rate on hotel and flight and visited DRC in December. I am so glad that we did, because the resort (while beautiful) is soooo small. The wedding areas are right on top of the other guests. On our third day I saw an afternoon wedding take place on the beach and right behind the wedding guests was a older very tan guy in a mankini sunbathing with one leg haning off his chair while talking on his phone...then, as if on que, four 50-something women in bikini's and cowboy hats walked passed and started woo hoo-ing. <----- and that pretty much did it for me. I turned on my phone, called up Aurora at dreams tulum and scheduled a site tour for the next morning.
Dreams Tulum is so much more spread out and offers you a bit more privacy and options for where you can have your wedding/reception.
Dreams Riviera Cancun was a great resort, but just not for my wedding. The staff was amazing and we had a nice time. Note...the wedding gazebo is right above the beach bar and kids playground area.
