Thoughts. suggestions, opinions of Dreams Tulum needed!!

Recommended Posts

Hey there guys! I know many of you have been to Dreams (hint hint Jason!)! I am looking for some feedback about the resort. This resort is cheaper for our guests and may be a better option for our wedding. I am concerned because it is an all-ages resort. Are there a lot of kids running around? I know it is hard to predict, but we are going May 7th-14th, 2008.

Other questions we have:

How was the food? The beach? How long does it take to get to PDC? Have you seen any weddings/receptions there?

 

I know the list of questions is long, but I know I can count on you guys for quality and honest opinions!!

 

Thanks a bunch in advance!!

Actually, Karen and I are going to get married there site-unseen. We chose Dreams for a number of reasons like price, location (we love the town of Tulum), availability and it just looks like a great place.

 

Some other people on here like Laura have been there and loved the place which made choosing Dreams a little easier. We leave in less than a month now though. I would be more than happy to fill you in when we get back though.

Amy,

 

I went there for a site visit (yes, Lisa - I know I need to write a review! lol). It was a gorgeous resort. I was only there for an hour, not a night - but here are my thoughts on it (mini review!):

 

Kids - yes, there were a lot of them... but not annoyingly so. They had a really great kids club off to the side. We went and walked through it, and they have something from all ages, right up to teenagers... hell, I didn't want to leave the kids club! lol. They even have like a mini buffet area there, where a private cook will make them lunch. It was awesome.

 

The pool area I found to be incredibly crowded. It sort of reminded me of a cruise, where everyone is lined around the pool. There are 2 (? maybe more) pools, but they're right next to eachother, so they're both kind of crowded... although the second/smaller pool was a bit better in that there were places to sit and the pool itself wasn't crowded.

 

Food - I didn't try it, but we did stop in all of the restaurants during our tour and they were doing prep for lunch at the time - OMG it smelled so good. And the kids seemed to be enjoying the seaside grill when we were walking by!

 

The resort - the layout is beautiful. You walk out the back of the lobby and there is a row of buildings to each side right to the beach. It's a gorgeous view, and fantastic first impression! My only nay-say about this layout was that there are A LOT of rooms that don't get an ocean view. the layout continues to the side so that there are a lot of rooms that face inwards, into a terrace area... which is still beautiful and peaceful... each terrace area (I don't know what else to call it! lol) has plant life, benches and fountains. But still, when most people go to a location like Mexico, they want ocean views! I'm not sure how many actual ocean view rooms there are, but I'd check if I were you.

 

That's all I can think of now. I don't have pictures on this computer... but I should really post them!! lol

Thanks for posting Courtney! I really like this resort, especially since it is a sister resort to Secrets, our first choice, but I am really worried about the reviews I have been reading on Trip Advisor as well as on the Dreams forum! This picking a resort stuff is stressing me out!

Finally Courtney! Man, it took you long enough! LOL! Just kidding. Thanks for the mini review. Personally, I'm excited to see a new/different place. Maybe that's the adventurer in me. Everyone coming with us (31 so far) are all soooo excited....even knowing that on one has been here.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
