- Location. It is close to a marina and there is stuff to do around the area. It is also slightly closer to Cancun.
- Availability. They are not as booked up as DT. I was able to get Saturday in Memorial Day weekend at 5pm with no trouble. The date was very important to me because I had some guests that could not get off work for too long.
- WC. This is only a plus for a little bit. Natalia is very available to answer any questions you may have. The longest I have waited for a reply is 2 days. While I was a DT bride, I often had to wait a long time for a reply. This obviously is a result of DT being very busy with weddings right now and extremely over worked. I am sure once DPA opens, the reply time will slow down as they get more and more busy. I heard DPA is already sold out for November.
- Wedding Gazebo. I really didn't like it at first, but now I am in love with it. DT does not have a wedding gazebo. They do the ceremonies on either the beach or in the chapel.
Conclusion: There really isn't any info from former brides. I have heard some bad things about DPA from when it was the Sunscape, but I am expecting that now that they are renovating it that it will hold up to the high standards of Dreams Resorts. Dreams Tulum is a gorgeous resort and I really don't need to go into detail about why it is also a good choice. There is tons of information and reviews available.

So of course there are many risks involved with booking your wedding at a newly opened resort, such whether its opening is delayed and quality of service, the look of the resort post-renovations, etc. You really don't know what you are getting. That being said, it could be wonderful, but it's just more risky than going with an established resort.
Not trying to talk you out of it at all, just trying to provide some info. I know some ladies were having a similar debate about booking the new Princess hotels in the mayan riviera (which opened last Nov/Dec)

Tulum +size, secluded, scenary
- too secluded?, hit or miss reviews, drive from airport, beach
DPA +size, location (not in Cancun, close to ruins and shopping), beach, water everywhere, newly renovated
Really I am running a risk, but as they say at work everyday- no risk, no reward! I really dont see it as a huge risk though. It is a resort in a chain and it will be open for an entire year before I head down there.
Long rant, good luck though!!!

I wanted to go to the Beaches resorts because they are really kid friendly, but they seem to be much more expensive than others and I would like everyone to be able to afford to come, so the Dreams resorts looks like a really good choice. Any info would be helpful!
