I have just returned from a wonderful familiarization trip to Cancun and Riviera Maya. While in Cancun, we were lucky enough to stay at the Dreams Cancun Resort.
Dreams, an all-inclusive family resort,
is on the north end of the Cancun hotel strip. It was recently renovated and a new “Preferred Club” tower has been added. Many of the suites in the Preferred Club offer Jacuzzis, 2 bedrooms (great for families) access to the Tower pool, and private concierge service. The Presidential Suite (which is where I stayed….NOT!!) has a 360 degree view of the property and the Caribbean Sea, a private elevator, and meeting space for up to 12 people.
Dreams is a great destination for families. A supervised children’s program is available for the young ones, where they will participate in age appropriate activities: crafts, games & water sports. The smaller children have their own pool, too! Of course, mom and dad will want to relax and enjoy the Spa facilities, including aromatherapy massages……I admit I did have to indulge myself!
A state of the art work out facility is available for those die-hard fitness fanatics. Spinning classes, free-weights, treadmills and elliptical machines are all available at no extra charge. Of course, a sauna, also at no extra charge, is a great way to end that work out.
For those who prefer a little more of the group participation sports, there’s always a volleyball game on the beach, a little kayaking or a game of tennis at the lighted courts.
At Dreams you can swim with the dolphins! The swim with the dolphins program is at an extra charge, but the 6 dolphins which are always willing to give you a little show when they are not “working”. You can hear them chirping at each other throughout the day and they love chasing and playing with each other. I was able to have quite a show right from my room terrace! What a treat.
The restaurants at Dreams are quite good. My favorite was the Oceana which serves freshly, caught today, seafood and the best steaks! The apple tart was pretty good too! Many will love the Asian cuisine served at Himitsu….a great variety of sushi, as well as salmon and other seafood options. Seaside Grill is also a great choice for surf and turf, served right on the beach. World Café serves buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner…..great food! One of the great things about the restaurants at Dreams: no reservations required! We didn’t wait long for seating at any of the venues.
Oh, and shopping!! Within walking distance of Dreams…….upscale shops and local flea markets and local night clubs…it’s all there.
