The best part about Dreams Tulum beach?
In my opinion, it’s how wide and private it is!
Not to mention it’s beautifully framed in parts with lush looming palm trees.
Weddings on the beach here are usually tucked away in a quiet corner of the beach that offers unobstructed views of the ocean and the shorelines edge.
2. Dreams Garden
This is a large space perfect for bigger reception parties.
Some couples prefer this as the grass and garden are easy to walk on, especially in heels.
All garden options at this resort are perfect for those of you who want more privacy for your special occasion.
3. Secret Garden Gazebo
The Mexican jungle is completely underrated if you ask me.
Do you picture yourself getting married under a palapa hut, surrounded by thick lush greenery, perfectly landscaped, with the wilderness’ echos as the white noise to your wedding?
If yes, then look no further.
4. Convention Center Ballroom
It’s always good to know the resort has an indoor backup option because let’s face it failing to prepare, is preparing to fail in my eyes.
This space can be arranged beautifully to host groups of all sizes.
5. Jungle Garden Gazebo
Yes, this resort has not one but two garden gazebos to choose from. Take your pick.
6. Sunset Rooftop
My favorite of them all! I mean, just look at it.
I can feel the ocean breeze whipping through my hair as I write this.
Finally, if your religion is something you hold close to your heart this has got to be one of the prettiest adorned chapels in all of the Riviera Maya.

Find out what recent bride who had their wedding at this hotel has to say about their experience…
“Our wedding had been rescheduled twice during covid in another country. My husband and I decided to move our wedding along with 30 guest to Dreams Tulum.
Our wedding coordinator Victoria was hands down amazing, not to mention Arcangel one of our waiters at our wedding whom later was our waiter at one of the dining rooms.
Benito another waiter in the outdoor bars was super friendly to our entire guest. We received great massages by the pool by a very sweet lady which I never got her name.
The hotel does have great measures in place for COVID. Our room was an ocean view which had a great view.”
“I had my wedding here on August 7th and let me tell you, they make you feel right at home since day 1. When we arrived they all welcomed us with open arms. Every time we needed anything it was offered and all we had to do was ask once.
Overall every staff personnel is very helpful and super attentive.”
