Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa 

Heavenly hacienda

Floury sands are lapped by the Caribbean Sea at the family-friendly Dreams Tulum, a large hacienda-style resort commanding 44 acres of shimmering shoreline and tropical gardens.

Prepare to fully unwind in the easygoing atmosphere at Dream Tulum. Pop your wallet in the safe and forget about it — this is a top-end all-inclusive resort where guests can savour every guilt-free moment of a long, lazy, lunch and an extra ice cream for the kids won’t make you wince. Even room service and the minibar are included. If you want fun in the sun vibes, you’ve got it — there’s plenty going on, from beach volleyball to ocean kayaking. But if you simply want to take refreshing dips in the pool and slowly make your way between your sunlounger and the swim-up bar, that’s what Dreams is made of too.

Why we love Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa

  • When you’re ready to tear yourself away from the Dreams bubble, you’re in an excellent location for getting out to explore intriguing Mayan ruins

  • Don’t miss your team in action — the resort’s 24-hour Sky Sports Bar shows matches on big TVs and satisfies midnight munchies with the all-night buffet

  • Super soothing treatments at the spa may not be included but promise the ultimate in relaxation. Plus, you can make a day of it thanks to the hydrotherapy pools and create your own bespoke product in the Spa Pantry

  • Dreams is exceptionally family-friendly with a splash pad and kids club for children. But don’t be put off if you’re holidaying as a couple — you can choose a room in an area of the resort exclusively for adults

Prepared to be blown away by the array of restaurants at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa. Across nine dining experiences, it’s fair to say that there’s something for everyone. And while the buffet at World Café may become your main go-to, there’s a choice of international speciality restaurants for celebratory evenings, or if you just fancy dressing up and making a night of it.

Barefoot Grill
This poolside spot will bound to become a firm favourite thanks to its handy location and light lunch menu. Barefoot by name, and barefoot by nature — swimsuits and sandy toes are welcome at this casual eatery.

An adults-only restaurant serving fancy French fare in a formal setting. Families are welcome to dine on the terrace.

Coco Café
Grab caffeinated pick-me-ups and ice cream all day. Relax and sit in or order to go.

El Patio
Taste the flavours of the nation at the resort’s authentic Mexican where the décor is as lively as the dishes.

Indulge in sushi specialities, dining alongside fellow guests perched on bar stools or opting for an unhurried evening for two at one of the tables.

Watch the drama of the teppanyaki kitchen unfold, where guests on tables of up to ten can get to know each other in a sociable atmosphere. Tables for two are available with a reservation.

Dress for dinner at the exquisite Italian restaurant that features its own wine cellar for exemplary pairings.

Seaside Grill
Take a seat on the terrace for a premium lunch or dinner by the pool.

World Café
It’s choices galore at the resort’s extensive international buffet, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The resort’s swim-up bar is the perfect spot to order a refreshing drink without leaving the coolness of the pool under sunny Mexican skies.

The lobby bar is a central social space. Find a seat at the bar – tequila anyone? Or head out on to the terrace for al fresco drinks on a balmy Mexican night.

The spa bar serves up nutritious options to complement the spa’s wellness offerings and give you some oomph.

Sky Bar
A 24-hour sports bar serving drinks and snacks all day and a night buffet, beer, and soft drinks overnight.

Smoothie Bar
Give yourself a vitamin boost with a fruity concoction blended at the Smoothie Bar.

Sugar Reef
Open mid-morning till late, Sugar Reef has a prime beach and poolside setting and a menu of tropical cocktails.

The Lounge
Deeply cushioned sofas invite you to relax from the early evening onwards.

The Seaside Grill brings beach chic vibes with an ocean view and a boat-fresh menu of seafood.

What's included

Unlimited Luxury All Inclusive • All meals and drinks at restaurants around the resort with no reservations required • Unlimited international and local alcoholic drinks, fruit juices and soft drinks • 24-hour room service and concierge • Pool and beach waiter service • Minibar refreshed daily with soft drinks, juice, bottled water and beer • Themed parties and entertainment.

There’s a large spa at Dreams with a hydrotherapy area to enjoy pre- or post-treatment — the aroma-therapeutic salt scrub is heavenly. Choose from the cool comfort of an interior cabin, including a couple’s treatment room, or one of three beach cabins, two jungle cabins, and a holistic cabin. For a bit of pampering before a night out, there’s a full-service beauty salon for hair and nails, and a Spa Pantry where guests can get creative blending bespoke spa products.

In the fitness centre you’ll find treadmills and ellipticals alongside step machines and free weights. Or, if you’re looking for a group activity, choose from tennis, water aerobics, beach and water volleyball, beach soccer and beach yoga.

There are two pools at the resort, one of which features a splash park for kids with six slides and squirters. There’s the chance to take an intro to diving course in the pool, or if you’re keen to get out on the ocean, there’s kayaking, snorkelling, catamarans, and scuba diving available for a charge.

What’s nearby? The city of Tulum's ruins are the biggest attraction in the area and it’s just over 10 minutes' drive from the hotel. The resort runs trips to explore the site, as well as downtown Tulum – where you can shop for handmade souvenirs. There are also excursions available to two local cenotes, Dos Ojos and Ik Kil, which are incredible natural underground pools. Chichen Itza is just over two hours' drive away.

Tried and tested: Use of the supervised Explorer’s Club is included as part of the All Inclusive package, and it’s open all day for children aged 3 to 12. This is also where you’ll find the excellent kids’ splash park. We’d highly recommend the weekly camping adventure organised by the kids’ club – youngsters will love camping out on the beach, and you’ll get a chance to truly relax as they make new friends.

The sleeping arrangements: The Deluxe Family Room is made up of two interconnecting Deluxe Rooms, so you get plenty of space and separate bedrooms. Each Deluxe Room also has a balcony or terrace with a hammock, and nice little touches like a minibar refreshed daily with beer, juices, soft drinks and bottled water. There’s also a television, 24-hour room service and iPod docking station – perfect if you’ve got a tech-loving teen.

Minimum stay: 4 nights 26-31 Dec.

Minimum age for the adults-only rooms is 18.
