If you haven’t seen Dreams Tulum in a year or so, you might be surprised at the different look it has taken on – we know we were! The difference is immediately noticeable when stepping through the second story lobby and overlooking the main courtyard in the Dreams section. Walkways have been redone and all new foliage has been planted, to the tune of over 5,000 new native plants. The colors are amazing – pinks, purples, yellows, and more really stand out from the lush green grass in the open areas.
Dreams Tulum has really positioned themselves as one of the premier luxury family all-inclusives in Mexico. From the always-popular Explorers Club for kids (one of our favorites, featuring 9AM-9PM hours, dozens of daily activities – tennis, sandcastles, video games, scavenger hunts, arts & crafts, rock climbing, basketball, and the amazing beach bonfire and movie night) to the friendly bartenders always willing to serve up a virgin pina colada or strawberry daiquiri, Dreams Tulum has always been on the top lists for family resorts, especially for families with older children (seven to twelve years of age or so). New for 2009 however, they’ve gone a step further with their rooms – well, make that two steps:
The one wing of the Dreams section has been redesigned with the ability to have a ‘block’ of 4 to 7 rooms with the addition of an enclosed hallway with separate doors; this gives large families, small wedding groups, or just several friends the option to book a block and have that area essentially to themselves with its own entrance. Plans are in place to have the other wings done this way as well. Dreams Tulum has also increased the number of connecting rooms available in the Hacienda (original) section. So now it’s easier than ever to request that connecting room for families needing more than one room. They’ve heard the requests from larger families, and they’ve responded!
The former lobby area in Dreams Tulum’s Hacienda section, which was just a lounge area, has been overhauled with the addition of the Coco Cafe, Dreams’ new coffee/tea area. Guests can now enjoy premium coffees, lattes, and teas along with deli sandwiches and snacks in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Just steps outside the Coco Cafe is the Sugar Reef bar with premium cocktails throughout the day, and where weekly tequila tastings are held.
Dreams Tulum still features all the great services and amenities they have for years – seven gourmet restaurants with no reservations needed, six bars with premium liquors, 24 hour room service, in room minibars, and daily & nightly activities – now with additional features for families. And don’t forget, the amazing Tulum ruins are just minutes from the resort – now featuring “Tulum de Noche”, a guided night tour (so it’s a lot less hot!) through the lit pyramids and structures.
Dreams Tulum, along with the other Dreams and Secrets resorts, are still offering a $200 Resort Credit for reservations made through June 30th for travel through December 23rd, and like other Dreams resorts – kids stay free on certain dates!
