It’s almost here! The newest addition to the Dreams family of luxury family resorts is scheduled to open next month – Dreams Riviera Cancun. Dreams Riviera Cancun is the first Dreams built from the ground up, and from touring the construction site last month, we’re all quite excited to see the final product. Dreams Riviera Cancun features a compact layout, perfect for families with children (hard for them to wander off without being seen, unlike some other mega-resorts), very unique octagonal rooms with upscale furnishings and amenities, very nice stretch of white sand beach, large lagoon-style pools (plus a kids pool adjacent to the main pool), and one of the best kids programs of any resorts we well (the Explorers Club).
Of course being built from the ground up, Dreams Riviera Cancun was able to be designed how they wanted and include features they weren’t able to in other resorts, such as swim out rooms with split-level pools outside the patio, beds in the rooms that face the patio/balcony for wonderful sunrises, flat screen televisions, Jacuzzi tubs, and double vanity sinks in all room categories, and an absolutely gorgeous outdoor spa garden with individual treatment cabanas. Eight restaurants and six bars (plus the new Coco Cafe coffee shop) give Dreams Riviera Cancun guests plenty of choices.
Dreams Riviera Cancun includes all the same great amenities and features as other Dreams Resorts – no reservations for dining, even in gourmet a la carte restaurants; no wristbands or towel cards; 24 hour room service; in room minibars refreshed daily; Explorers Club for kids 3-12 open from 9AM to 10PM; and much more.
A few things we found – the location of Dreams Riviera Cancun is fantastic, only around 20 minutes from the airport, and being right next door to Excellence Riviera Cancun, it has a wonderful white sand beach. Dreams Riviera Cancun’s Explorers Club has individual rooms for each age group of children (plus rock climbing wall and theater) so smaller children aren’t grouped with older ones, but oddly enough Dreams did not incorporate their new Core Zone Teens Club – this says to us they plan to gear Dreams Riviera Cancun much more towards families with younger (12 and under) children. Rooms, while not suites, are spacious with the unique layout, and many rooms are connecting.
