Dreams Tulum Closure (consolidated thread)

Recommended Posts

IMPORTANT, VERY IMPORTANT!

 

I just got off the phone with the resort to confirm their closure. Dreams Tulum is in fact closed. Yes, closed. I read it in a Spanish newspaper and wanted to believe it was yellow journalism.

Unfortunately, Dreams Tulum along with Eurostar Tulum resorts ARE CLOSED.

I don't mean to sound so harsh but to be honest I am freaking out.

Apparently, the mexican government claims these hotels didn't have the "appropriate licensing" to build on the land. The woman I spoke with on the phone told me they do have all the permits necessary. Sooo, I was told they would fight it in court this week and we should know more by early next week.

 

I'm trying to stay calm. My FH just said "what the f#@$!!" and has decided to leave and go swimming with my nephews. Great, leave it to me!

 

So, I will post more when I know more.

If you have ANY info, of course we would all love to hear it!!

this is what the resort has sent...they think it will be resolved very quickly as the guests at the resort are allowed to stay and have full use of facility.

 

Quote:
As indicated earlier today, the federal authorities have entered Dreams Tulum questioning the permits and authorizations for the resort. While the authorities are reviewing our permits and while we are seeking a "parole" in order to continue full operation, we are taking the precaution of relocating all arrivals until Monday, October 6th. Guests that were already checked into the resort prior to Friday evening are in Dreams Tulum and services have not been disrupted.

 

We are still uncertain how long it will take for the authorities to review our permits and/or for us to obtain the parole so this action is necessary in order to ensure guests will have an uninterrupted holiday experience with all the services and facilities they expect. Until we are sure that the guests will have access to the entire resort and facilities, we feel this is the best course of action to insure the guests stay is comfortable.

 

We will continue to relocate the guests to Dreams Cancun and Secrets Silversands and the resort sales team will be in touch to discuss this further in detail. Please rest assured that we will do everything possible to resolve this situation as expeditiously as possible.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

Did they say how long they were going to be closed or do we need to wait until they are out of court?

I just got home and wanted to get on here ASAP!! A guest of ours was randomly on trip advisor and saw something about the closing; that's how we got tipped off. Yes, it's extremely frustrating that we don't hear anything from the resort, especially for people like Trish with a wedding so soon! My FI called the 800 Dreams Number and spoke to a woman who said she thought things would be back open in about a week... there was also talk of moving things to Dreams Cancun or their 18 and over resort (I think it's called Secrets?) if things were still closed by our date. GRRRRR.

I have just gotten off the phone with Monica, who is a manager at the resort. She said that the resort is closed however, only about half of it is closed. It is not specifically the old or new part of the resort so there is no way of knowing which rooms will be available.

 

She will know more information tomorrow at noon and will give me a call back.

 

I've been reading some of the Spanish newspaper and it said that the Mexican Marines along with their equivalent of the Dept. of Environmental Protection entered the hotel this weekend and started condemming random buildings.

 

I am hoping for the best. I hope it is just another way for the Mexican Gov't to try to get some money. Obviously the workers need their jobs so I hope they are doing everything possible to resolve this.

 

I will give everyone an update after I speak with Monica tomorrow...

 

The question is....should we give our guests a heads up? Or wait until the week ends and we see what the outcome is?

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
