1. Staircase of the great hall

The not so obvious and underrated location...

When I first visited the hotel, I didn't even realize it was a wedding venue, but when I saw the photos of everything b

It's just stunning and absolutely unique.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (4)

The top of the stairs leads into the lobby, which by the way is one of my favorite lobbies in the Riviera Maya, it oozes zen.

I think the wedding team may take this place a bit private, but I must take note.it's not totally privateSo if you are looking for privacy, this place may not be for you.

go back up

2. Wedding pavilion

Oh, there is no doubt that this place is absolutely stunning.

It overlooks the ocean from a great height, allowing for a cool Caribbean breeze to blow through, which is desirable on a hot afternoon.

Although this place is very nice, it would not be my first choice, it is too busy for me andis it very close to the main pool.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (5)

I don't mind kids screaming while I'm engaged to another man for the rest of my life. Ha!

go back up

3. Oceana Roof

This is my personal favorite place in this hotel.

I'm a fan of Sky Terrace what I love about this one is you're not too high up so you'restill at ocean levelwhich always looks stunning in photos.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (6)

If you're looking for privacy, great views, and a bit of wind, this is a place for you!

4. strand

Of course, there is always the classic beach wedding.

The beach here is nice and smooth, but a bit narrow in places.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (7)

However, this resort's beach facilities are particularly impressive: you can have a drinksimple and elegantolush and luxuriousIt's your decision!

5. Room at Dreams Riviera Cancun

All the rooms in this complex have a unique octagonal shape to ensure that each room has fabulous views of the gardens and the sea.
if you are a foolSuites Vista Mar o Swim UpThis hotel is in no shortage.😉

This is what I like the most about the Swim-Up Suites at Dreams Riviera CancunThey are 100% exclusive for your room.

Most of the other hotels that offer this type of room in the Riviera Maya have "mini rivers" that flow around the hotel rooms and while they are lush, they are not entirely private as you are basically sharing the pool. the person next door

Well, not in this hotel!

Your room has its own mini plunge pool.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (10)
I looked at one of the seaside presidential suits while here and it was absolutely stunning.

This room category has a huge bed, a big bathroom and even a living room... not to mention a huge balcony with sea views and a triangular jacuzzi!

Of course, all 486 suites offer one king or two double beds, 24-hour room service, in-room whirlpool tubs, and a private furnished balcony or patio.

For large families who prefer to haveConnecting rooms This resort can guarantee the roomsin advance (not common in the Riviera Maya) you just need to pay a small deposit of around $50 in advance.

I should point out that the hotel started renovating the rooms during my visit.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (11)

We've seen both the old and the new, and WOW, the new ones are just heavenly, sleek and modern complemented by shades of blue and wood finishes.

6. strand

It was everything I could hope for and dream of in a tropical vacation in the Caribbean.

There wasno algae during my visitand i was glad to see thatwidth of the beach had remained intactsince the last time I was there.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (12)

7. Food and drink

The music to my ears at this resort was thatA la carte options are available without reservation.!

It's pretty unknown in these areas and it really bothers me because I'm not really that organized, I'm more of the moment to moment kind of thing.

I like the freedom of choosing where to go instantly and not having to stick to a schedule when I'm on vacation!

the hotel had9 restaurants and 6 barsaccessible:

  • French
  • Italian
  • Mexican
  • Asian
  • seafood

In addition, the World Café Buffet serves delicious options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For the poor appetite while lounging by the pool, there was even that.Barefoot BBQ by the poolfor informal snacks during the day.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (13)

And if you have a sweet tooth like me, The Deli Cafe is the perfect place for premium coffee and snacks.

For people who suffer from itGluten intolerance or celiac diseaseFear not, Dreams Riviera Cancun has you covered. They offer delicious gluten-free options at all of their restaurants.

There is also waiter service at the pool and beach, and 24-hour room service so you can treat yourself whenever you want.

My favorite restaurant was the seafood one on the beach.

It's a semi-open environment, nice breeze and great views of the beach and pool.

I would recommend the agauachile and the seared salmon with lemon garlic sauce!

8. Activities and Entertainment

When you're traveling with kids, pools and activities can make or break a vacation.

Heck, even as an adult I'm a sucker for big activities, I mean they're part of what we pay for well right?

Dreams Riviera Cancun has multiple pools,a kids' club and activities designed specifically for teens.

There's fun for the whole family, whether it's thatKayak, snorkel or enjoy a diving initiation course.

Golf lovers can rejoice too!

Of course, in every 4/5 star all-inclusive hotel there is evening entertainment for guests.

Dreams Riviera Cancun presents various events,Musical performancesand games to bring everyone together for fun and participation.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (14)

night life

However, if you want to venture out, you can travel north to get to Cancun or south to get to Playa del Carmen. Both options take between 20 and 30 minutes by taxi.

Cancun is a big, bustling city and best for big clubs and big nights if that's your style.

If you like it a bit more laid back but still want to enjoy bars and live music I would sayCarmen beachit's more for you

9. What the brides said...

What a great experience shared by our family and friends! All the staff have always been professional and friendly, from Enrique at the bar to my Marissa.MarriageCoordinator. Every single person there was amazing. MyMarriageit was everything and more! – Felicia B.

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (15)

I have few words to describe our trip to Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa. From arrival to departure we were treated like royalty.
The staff always had a smile, whether it was Clever in the lobby bar or our wonderful cleaners walking past them on the sidewalks. Gershon the concierge greeted us personally every time we passed by and always made sure we were taken care of. Paulina and her wedding team truly gave us a ceremony and experience we could not have imagined - it was everything we wanted and more. The entire staff at Dreams never lets anything stress them out, be it our next drink, meal or wedding ceremony. This was the trip of a lifetime for her. We still get thanks from our guests who tell us it was one of the best vacations they've ever had and one of the best weddings they've ever been to. We owe it all to Dreams and their amazing staff and resort (the rooms were some of the best we've stayed in on our Mexico vacation!). From the bottom of my heart, thank you! -Molly and Mike

10. Pros and cons

Things we LOVE:

  • Dreams Resorts is part of AMResorts We love working with these guys.It is always a high level service, simple and effective. For example, they've been great during the COVID pandemic by allowing the bride to quickly and easily change her wedding date and not lose any money, and their new security protocols are the best I've seen.
  • The hotel is not overwhelmingly large, it is the perfect size in my opinion.
  • Wide range of wedding packages to choose from.
  • Stunning bridal suite for you and your bridesmaids to get ready before the ceremony!

My honest review of Dreams Riviera Cancun Weddings 2023 (16)

Things we don't love so much:

  • The beach is a bit narrow in places. So if wide, powdery, soft sand is your thing, this may not be the place for you.
  • Preferred Club guests still incur some additional charges for premium liquor/services.
