Hesitating between Dreams Tulum and GP Kantenah...

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't go so far as to say you can barely swim at Dreams Tulum. While I was really disappointed in the beach (because other places I'd been to previously outside the mayan rivera had awesome beaches) you can definitely still swim, there are some places that are more clear than others.


I don't know if the beach at the grand palladium is much better. I remember when I doing my research I looked at that resort and the beach was probably about the same.


Here are links to some aerial photos that show the coral/rocks in the water. I guess the palladium does seem to have one decent sized clear area. Dreams Tulum has a clear area as well towards the left (just outside the photo). It's not totally clear but more then the rest of the beach.

Good luck with your choice!

We are getting married at the GP. We actually stayed there back in October and thought it was great. It is a very large resort but, we didn't mind. They have trolleys driving around that you can hop on and even the bell boys that drive around on golf carts will drive you if you flag them down. Everyone was very nice and accomodating. We did get lost a few times at first while walking around but got to see a lot of the naturaly beauty (forest like walkways, animals, etc). The beach was fine for us, we did a lot of boogey boarding and swimming. There are some rocky parts depending on where you venture off to but for the most part we were fine. Just have to be aware and careful where u step. We floated instead of walked wink.gif

    • 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.
