Set amid 44 acres of gardens, this 432-room resort is full of the latest in modern creature comforts. Nine restaurants let guests feast on Mexican, Japanese, or French cuisine, to name just a third of the options. Then they can grab a drink at one of six bars, including a swim-up bar, sports bar, poolside bar, lounge, and even a spa bar. There are even nightly performances by the pool. But while the contemporary, man-made attractions of the resort are impressive, its natural wonders border on awe-inspiring, with two miles of white-sand beaches and coral reefs offshore.
In the Area
You don’t have to look too far to find the area’s main attraction: Dreams Tulum is named for the oceanfront ruins of the ancient Mayan city, Tulum. But why stop at the ruin in your own backyard? The hotel can arrange excursions to the pyramids of Chichén Itzá, which have been called one of the seven wonders of the world, or to swim in the sacred underground pools of the cenote route. And for excursions that blend the ancient local culture with modern adventures, guests head to Xel-Ha park to swim with dolphins; or to Xcaret archaeological theme park to play ancient Mayan ball games. And for those who can’t go for a week without golfing, Dream Tulum guests have free entrance to the Riviera Maya Golf Club.
How to Get There
This was my first time attending a resort with my boyfriend and Dreams Tulum was welcoming and those staff were always polite and truly cared for their guests well being. Ricky was the entertainment director/ leader and his crew were always upbeat energetic and their vibes were contagious. Each day had a set schedule of what activities events to expect. Rooms were cleaned daily. Once we checked in they actually updated our room to a deluxe which was awesome. The room was beautiful and close to the pool and beach.
The selections of food choices they had were GREAT for an all inclusive resort I was worried about eating the same thing every day but there were several different choices.
The resort itself is beautiful during the day but especially at night.
Unfortunately the beach did contain seaweed BUT the amazing staff worked restlessly to clean up and obtain it so their guest can enjoy the beach.
Overall Dreams made my first resort experience an unforgettable one.
The service and staff at the Dream Tulum were awesome. The facility was extremely clean and tidy. The rooms and pool areas will extremely clean with extreme upkeep. The food at the Seaside grill was the best we've had out of any of the unlimited vacation club resorts we've been too. The hacienda style rooms worked well as there where strategically placed where all the main activities and restaurants were located.
The only disappointment is that the ocean is not swimmable due to it being on a reef. An addition, there was excessive sea weed all over the beach, especially in the Preferred club area.
Vacationed for a week at the resort last month (June 2019). Had a fabulous time! The staff was extremely friendly and the service was impeccable. Stayed in an upgraded room with the lazy river. Angel (the bartender) kept the drinks flowing and brought them poolside. The spa was amazing; loved the hydrotherapy circuit before the couples's massage. Drinks at the activities pool were superb; Guadalupe made regular rounds and I have never met a more authentically sweet person in my life!!! The entertainment staff make the week fun, especially Ricky (what a talented sweetheart). Carmen (the hostess at the Mexican Restaurant) made me laugh every morning; she was such a good sport when I asked her to help me with my Spanish. Highly recommend this resort. Has the right mix of relaxation and activity. Cenote excursions were excellent and very close to the resort.
All of the Dreams Resorts and Spas are beautiful but Dreams Tulum is simply exquisite! My favorite hotel personnel is Rodrigo at check in. He was very warm and welcoming. He was able to answer all of my questions check in was fast, easy and he was very pleasant. Rodrigo at Dreams Tulum made us feel like were family returning back for a wonderful vacation. Thank you Rodrigo!
The resort Dreams Tulum all that we hoped it would be, relaxing with very good food in the many restaurants with very good and knowledgeable waiters. With Claudia as a very good hostess to Arturo the waiter. With Mario by the preferred area of the beach to Benito getting us drinks. The Entertainment staff of Gigi, Aranza, Horacio kept us very entertained. Natalia and Carlos answered all questions
