I know it's farther away which can be good or bad. I like that it is secluded but how secluded is it? Also, I was reading SunBrides's review on DT and mentioned that the beach was terrible. I love the beach...is it really that bad?
I see that you can get married in the chapel or on the beach...is there a charge to have the ceremony on the beach since they don't have a gazebo? Maybe I missed this conversation but is it true that you can use an outside photographer? I remember hearing earlier this year that Dreams wasn't allowing outside photographers. Two more questions I promise. Are the in-house photographers any good? and is it true that DT offers more thand DPA? Thanks for your help
You can take a taxi to PDC (I forget the charge, look it up in my review, something like 40$) or the public transit bus for 2$
The resort is quite secluded, but the town and ruins are and other resorts are a few minutes drive away.
The beach isn't terrible, but it's not great. It's pretty much the same all around the mayan riviera. Dreams Tulum is better than many other resorts, but still not great in my opinion (I'm comparing to other locations outside the mayan riviera that I've been to where the beach has been awesome).
No charge to get married on the beach.
They do allow outside photographers for no fee, you just pay a day pass only if you photographer needs to eat.
Past brides have mixed opinions about the phographers. Most agree they aren't awesome, some think they are still pretty good, others were overall disappointed.
