        Hello Tulum Brides to be,
        I am also considering dreams Tulum and the only thing deterring me from this location is bad beach reviews. Everything else about it is perfect. I am going down in June to check out some places but have any of you been there and if so, is the beach really as rocky and awful as everyone says it is on tripadvisor. I'm being crazy I know- but I would love your thoughts in this. Thanks in advance!

          yes the beach is rocky (in most places) but keep in mind that the resort is in Riviera maya, near Tulum. Most resort down there have the same problem...

            Even though I knew that the beach was not going to be great, I was still disappointed, and found it to be a bit worse than most people on trip advisor say, because they all say that the area around the trampoline is fine, but in reality you have to pass a punch of rocks to even get to the trampoline (about halfway there), so it's only really around the trampoline that it is fine (after swimming over some rocks to get there).

            There are some amazing beaches in Tulum (was recently rated one of the top 10 beaches in the world in an article) but not at Dreams Tulum, the nice beach is at the ruins and some other smaller hotels in tulum (not all inclusives).

            If you are set on the Mayan Riviera, you will find that there are very very few resorts with great beaches, it's rocky almost everywhere.

            If you haven't seen this link, check it out. You can scroll up and down the coast.

              I have just received an email from Sandra saying they no longer allow wedding receptions in the Seaside Grill.

                WHAT?! As of when? Is this for new weddings, meaning weddings that haven't been booked yet? My reception is supposed to be at Seaside. If she cancels on me I will have to reconsider the entire thing!!

                  So now the only options are ballroom, beach or patio?

                  I can see why they are doing this, a guest on trip advisor recently complained they could not get in El Patio or Seaside Grill all week because of weddings (they might be exaggerating, they might not have tried every night only a few nights, who knows). But at the same time they have to give the wedding groups more options! Many people don't want to be in the ballroom, they want to be somewhere open or near the beach.

                  I think, probably, she means for private receptions or very large groups. I assume that if you go with a group of, say, 20 or something, that you would still be allowed the choice of any restaurant, because you are not taking up the whole restaurant.

                      Does anyone have pictures of the Ballroom? Whats the decor? Is it you and a bunch of other weddings?

                      I had no idea that if you had over 20 people, that they plopped you into the Ballroom GAH!!
