    Hi everyone! I noticed that the most common resort picked by all the brides-to-be on this site is Dreams (VillaMagna or Puerto Vallarta).

    Can you tell me why you picked this resort over others? It's definitely on my list of potentials, but I'm still waiting for the prices for 2011 to come out so I can compare with other places (I'm getting married in January 2011)

    Thanks in advance everyone. Happy planning!

      dreams seemed to be a pretty good value. from what i've seen it looks like a nice resort with a fairly reasonable price

        I chose Dreams (Cancun) b/c of the service, the WC, the price and the VIEW (don't know if this part would apply to you though, lol). But really for the amazing reviews, the wonderful service, etc, you can't beat the price!

          I chose Dreams PV because I wanted an all-inclusive where my guests wouldn't have to worry about paying for drinks or food. Dreams PV was the best rated AI in PV which is why I went with them. It was definitely a good choice!

            I chose Dreams Puerto Aventuras! I knew I wanted to be on the east coast of Mexico, but Dreams PV came HIGHLY recommended to me by an old coworker/friend who was married there. She said EVERYTHING was just perfect. Dreams Cancun looks too much like "Star Trek" according to my fiance and mother, the same girl who recommended Dreams PV said do NOT get married at Dreams Tulum because the service, food, beach, etc just was nowhere near what she experienced at Dreams PV. Honestly, I've stayed at the Catalonia next door to Dreams Puerto Aventuras, I LOVE the area, the resort beach has good snorkeling, and the reviews have nothing bad to say.

            My main deal with Dreams was that you don't have to wear the AI bracelet or make reservations for dinners at restaurants. The reservations were a BIG problem when we stayed in Mexico two other times. Good luck!

              A couple of reasons why we knew we were going to pick a Dreams resort:
              Past experiences -we have been to all of them except the newest one near Cancun, They allows children,
              AI without wrist bands & great restaurants (without having to make reservations), An on-site wedding coordination,
              and most importantly it's a great value.
              We went with Dream PV-mainly because of the location (about 2-3 hour flight from southern CA) and the resort sits on a private beach.
              Bride & Groom plus 86 booked!!!

                Thanks everyone for all the great info!! You know, it's really hard to get a "feel" for a resort by just looking at the information online.We're saving all of our $ for the wedding/honeymoon, so we can't afford to take a scouting trip down there. I was starting to get a bit overwhelmed with making a decision, and all of your experience is helping a lot. Thanks!! :)

                  first, we were going to go for the cruise ship wedding. but after discussing with the family, we figured the cost didn't work given "bang for the buck".
                  then my sister mentioned the fantastic time that she had at Dreams PV.
                  with her raving recommendation we then did research, and really liked what we were reading on the net.
                  we had some time to get away, and decided to combine a short vacation with a little wedding recon.
                  needless to say, we totally fell in love with the resort.
                  food, amenities, food, the whole idea of AI, being secluded, spending a few hours with rebeca (the WC), and so much more made our decision to place a deposit before we left.
                  we we're not happy to leave.
                  and to actually be on the beach where we're going to get married, just sealed the deal!

                    we chose it because we have stayed there before and loved it. the food, service, rooms, view, and whole atmosphere is very good. It also allowed us to give people 4 different room options depending on what they wanted to spend.

                      After spending a 2 week vacation at Dreams PV last Nov. we were definitely set on having our wedding there this coming Nov. We go away every Nov. and knew we wanted to get married somewhere hot but had specific criteria regarding our wedding. We knew once we were there, that was the place. It has a private beach, no wrist bands required, great drinks (too strong at times!), a kids program, and fantastic food! The staff was awesome.
                      I have the wedding package info I can email you if you want to know more about the cost of things.
