- Dreams Tulum Resort & SpaNov 06, 2013
I’m not a fan of faux hacienda architecture, so I gotta say, Dreams Tulum kind of made my skin crawl at first; the obvious attempt to make new buildings look historic just isn’t my thing. But looking beyond my architectural prejudices, Dreams Tulum is more than a fine place to stay, especially if you like big resorts. The rooms have nice ironwork furnishings, sparse décor, and integrate hardwoods and marble throughout--the suites are significantly more comfortable and classy in style (no surprise); the grounds are well-maintained and include gardens, a full kids club complex, tennis courts, a chapel, and of course a white sand beach and a couple pools. There’s a variety of food options too—from a buffet with a wide selection of foods to a coffee house to fancy restaurants that include a sushi bar and French cuisine. All in all, this place is a great all-inclusive option--there's something for everyone.

I've stayed her five times and loved it. Perfect location...right in the heart of all the action but you feel like you are a world away. Great swimming beach with gentle waves plus the lagoon with the dolphins view rooms. Bear in mind that Dolphins are noisy creatures that splash and communicate even at night. If you disturb easy this novelty factor may not be the best choice. Excellent service and food with wonderful entertainment for the kids.

An hour drive from the airport in Cancun, we arrived to a quiet and lush entrance of Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa. Overall, we had a truly wonderful experience.
The food was some of the best I have ever had at an all-inclusive resort (especially the Mexican cuisine) and the cultural entertainment was impressive. Our room was fairly new and the set-up was perfect. If you are a chica with high-maintainance hair like mine, make sure you bring conditioner because their shampoo/conditioner duo did not cut if for me.
Make sure you check out the watersports hut at the far west of the beach; they offered the best snorkeling excursion we experienced during our stay. The reefs were breathtaking.
As for the spa is concerned: WOW. I had the most intense deep tissue massage of my life. My masseuse kneaded out tension in places I did not know I even could create knots. It was so painful I had to mentally repeat "Sat Nam" (my fellow kundalini yogis will understand this). Afterwards, the release of toxins from my body was so intense I felt like I was floating. Good stuff.
I loved this resort; the ethereal vibe, fun atmosphere at day and night and well-rounded activities. I would recommend this to a couple, a family or a single group of friends.

From the rear patio there’s a nice view down a long promenade to the pool and beach area. Large multi-story hacienda-style blocks flank the promenade and contain the guest rooms. The rooms are comfy and stylish, with four-poster beds, marble and glass bathrooms, and muted colors. Unlike the vast majority of all-inclusives, the rooms open onto air-conditioned interior corridors, so you aren’t hit with a blast of hot humid air the moment you step out. There are two pools, one for families and the other more relaxed. The beach area is huge and lovely, with tall trees and coast-to-coast lounge chairs. That said, the quality of the sand and water aren’t quite what you expect from a place with “Tulum” in the name (a high standard, to be sure). Why? Maybe because...it’s not Tulum! It’s quite a distance north. Perhaps it’s technically part of Tulum municipality--a bunch of other all-inclusives do the same thing--but it feels like false advertising to me. That said, this is still a first-rate resort.

The idea of all-inclusive anything, makes one wary. Will the food be sub-par? Surely they don't mean ALL the alcohol you can consume, and is room service included?
Our worries were allayed as soon as we set foot onto this gorgeous property (mosquitoes notwithstanding), boasting delicious food, 8 restaurants, one of which is a buffet for those who prefer to create their own portions (which can be a bit scant at the full-service restaurants) several bars, two pools, and a generous beachfront boasting white sands and deliciously warm, clear, turquoise waters.
There are organized activities for joiners, like yoga, Zumba, tequila tasting, ping pong, beach volleyball, etc. But the truth is, we spent most of our time visiting the ruins and beaches outside of our resort.
The only negative is the fact that the place is an island unto itself, where you must take a cab to get anywhere, including downtown Tulum.
Tip: charter a cab for the day to take you to the ruins...we were able to get one to take us to Coba, and Tulum, and whatever Cenotes we wished to stop at for the whole day, for $80USD.

I started going to Dreams Tulum when it was still Dreams Sunscape, and in eight years, I have been three times--once to get married. Dreams is an all-inclusive resort about an hour from the Cancun airport, far away from the built up areas of Cancun and Puerto Aventuras on the Riviera Maya.
When you arrive at the resort, they welcome you "home," and the resort is so relaxing that it certainly feels that way. There are no bracelets to slap on your wrist. The rooms are large with comfortable beds and huge bathrooms. One of my favorite things to do is order room service for breakfast and sit outside on the deck, looking at the ocean before people begin to claim their spots on the beach.
There are about eight restaurants the resort. Reservations are never needed, and the food is really good. The only buffet here is one of the breakfast options. The other thing included, isn't at many all-inclusive resorts, is top-shelf liquor.
The spa has been expanded--it's huge, very quiet, and heavenly. All of the regular water and sports activities are included, as well as bikes to ride to the Tulum ruins (a must-do activity!).
As a wedding destination, it was perfect for a large group of people of varying ages. The wedding planner worked well with us (really me!) via email to plan everything in advance. We had planned to have the ceremony on the beach, but the small chapel at the resort is so cute that we changed our minds and had it there instead.
The only negative about Dreams Tulum is that it has become quite child friendly, so my now husband and I now tend to look for quieter places when booking our beach vacations.
