The hotel

This beachfront property lies on 2 miles of secluded palm studded beach of soft white sand with a reef just offshore ideal for snorkelling and is surrounded by lush, mangrove forests. Considered an eco-friendly resort, with an impressive 44-acre garden landscape of over 5000 native plants from around the region, the hotel is built in the style of a traditional Mexican haçienda, offering an amazing variety of facilities and activities to keep active singles, couples and the whole family entertained. After a long day by the pool, relax and unwind at the world-class Dreams Spa by Pevonia® while the little ones are kept entertained at the Explorers Club for Kids. The nearby ancient ruins of Tulum, just a few minutes from the resort and Xel-Ha eco-adventure park makes a great day out for sightseeing and exploring. Unlimited-Luxury® ensures that all guests are treated like royalty and the Preferred Club adults only section adds the icing on the cake for a perfect, memorable holiday.

Upon my arrival I was very dissatisfied with the resort. Everything was old and not as it seemed in online.

We had such a great time at Dreams Natura Nov 2023 that we decided we wanted to do another Dreams. Dreams Tulum needs a complete overhaul. Internet was out which means you could not order room service or book reservation at restaurants or get any preferred benefits. The restaurants were not opened when they said they would be opened. The upgrade to preferred was a waste of time and money. Don’t bother complaining to the hotel They don’t care. 95% of the time if we wanted to eat the only choice we had was the World Cafe buffet. Tuesday night we found that El Patio was open but they had a buffet that night as well, but the worst part they had the food outside in the heat, flys everywhere along with the black birds stealing food off of the buffet. Both of us flew home sick. Spend your money elsewhere! Read less

This place has turned into a dump!!! We have stayed here in the past and it was amazing. Now not so much. There was a two hour delay in getting our room. We booked a garden junior suite and were given a basic room. The bathroom sink faucet was broken, the bathroom floor drained away from the shower drain so every every time you showered, the entire bathroom flooded, and the ceiling was full of mold. One of the days, housekeeping themselves left empty cups in the room and failed to remove the garbage they bagged up. They gave us "clean" towels that were full of stains. We complained several times and they did nothing and didn't seem to care. The beach was littered with seaweed, restaurants closed early. The only way to use the buffet the this 'all inclusive" was to buy a bottle of wine. At dinner our shrimp was not cleaned and still had the crap vein in it. Then we found 2 cockroaches in our suitcase. Totally inexcusable all the way around. As diamond level members of their vacation club, this is not the treatment what I have come to expect Read less
