OK parents…it’s final exam time…then field day…then IT is coming…the inevitable last day of school! I am actually looking forward to it! I’m planning our summer fun, including our summer family vacation!

Like many, I have narrowed down a week and am deciding on location. Last year we went on a great vacation to Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa with friends and family. We were going for a little bit longer of a stay, so we decided to venture down further in the Riviera Maya corridor to Tulum.

I stayed at Dreams Tulum many years ago, when it first opened, and wow — it’s great and perfect for groups and families!

Dreams Tulum does not require wristbands, dining reservations or towel cards, like other AMResorts. I’ve mentioned before how that makes life easier when travelling with a family. You don’t have to be on a dining schedule or worry about losing extra items.

Here are some of my favorite things about the resort:

Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa

I received another review from Apple Vacations’ Erin Miller who is currently in Riviera Maya! Stayed tuned all weekend long for up to date info one each of the hotels.

Hello from Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa! This is a 6 Golden Apple Resort. This property is located right in Tulum, so it is about a 75-minute drive from Cancun Airport. But remember, Apple Vacations offers non-stop transfers to Dreams Tulum and all Zoetry, Secrets, Dreams & Now Resorts in Riviera Maya & Cancun. This hotel is a great choice if you plan to visit The Mayan Ruins in Tulum and also Xcaret park, as it is very close.

One of the best things I like most about this property is how nice the beach is! You can walk for miles down the beach and will not see another resort, they are the last resort in Riviera Maya! The beach is beautiful as well with soft white sand and calm blue water! Dreams Tulum offers 2 styles of rooms throughout the property, the Premium Suites which are in the newer buildings. These suites are only about 2 years old. They also offer the Hacienda Section which is the older but renovated section, and the style of these rooms is a more Mexican Hacienda feeling. Another good feature of this resort is  they actually have a wedding chapel on site. The chapel is very charming with lots of wood, a very Mexican feeling, and perfect for a destination wedding!
