Dreams Playa Mujeres Video and Review
We couldn’t believe we had the entire resort to ourselves.
Located in an exclusive gated community, this resort celebrated its grand opening on November 30, 2016, and took family resorts to the next level. As the first official guests to set foot on the property at Dreams Playa Mujeres, we were taken aback by its beauty. Want to know our thoughts about this resort? Watch our video and read below to find out.
Waterpark and Pools
First of all, the waterslides are addicting. The two 328-foot beasts stood there in all their glory, just begging me to test them out. So I did… 15 times in a row! We also revelled in the three levels and 65,000 square feet of pool choices we had. One of the best-hidden spots is the Grotto Swim-Up bar, where you can slide under the waterfall and grab a drink on the down-low. Dreams Playa Mujeres knows how to do fun the right way.
We stayed in a preferred club room, the 1,162 sq. ft. Master Suite Swim-Out Ocean View King, with floor-to-ceiling sliding door windows, a stocked mini bar, and Bluetooth speaker system. A separate living space boasted a sectional sofa bed and a dining table that seats 4-6 people. The heated swim-out pool was enjoyed thoroughly both day and night. We even had our own plush seating areas to spread out on and relax.
Whether it was snorkeling, biking or kayaking, we always had an endless choice of what we wanted to do each day. During the bike tour you learn about the different plants and animals in the area, stop to explore the flora & fauna, and discover the hidden gems surrounding the resort. Kayaking in the Carribean sea had to be the most zen moment of our stay, we couldn’t get enough of breathing in that fresh air and enjoying the soothing sounds of the water.
Kids and Teens
There’s an Explorer’s Club for kids with supervised day and evening activities like treasure hunts, a kids theater, and weekly campout adventures. The Core Zone Teen Club has an impressive amount of activities including a climbing wall, batting cage, foam parties and both a Playstation 2 and Xbox 360.
Each of the 7 a la carte restaurants has its own unique theme and menu; it was hard to choose a favourite. The Gaucho Restaurant, a contemporary rodizio, has the most extensive and delicious choices of meat we’ve encountered. On top of it all, their Brazilian sides selection choices were savoury and full of flavour. At the French restaurant, Le E’Toile, we revelled in the multi-course menu and top-notch entertainment. Stop by Dolce to enjoy a burned marshmallow cone. As for breakfast, you can order it straight to your room and enjoy a romantic meal on your balcony. Finally, consider upgrading to a private breakfast on the pool terrace. Not only do you get your very own buffet and personal waiters, you have the best view of the Caribbean Sea.
You don’t need to wear a wristband. Wearing a wristband isn’t my favorite thing, it’s uncomfortable and impedes my tan. And, you don’t need to make reservations. Making reservations for dinner while I’m on vacation is the worst, in my opinion, just let me live my life unscheduled! Do you need to make a phone call during your stay? They have an app for that! The Dreams app not only gives you valuable information about the resort, it also allows you to call the US or Canada for free! Download it here.
Finally, the best feature of this resort is having access to the adults-only Secrets resort next door. Guests 18 and older can access all areas and facilities at the Secrets Playa Mujeres Resort just steps away. ALL OF THEM! That means more restaurants, spas, pools, activities, food, entertainment, and beach. It’s two resorts in one!
Having a good time at Dreams Playa Mujeres Resort & Spa isn’t hard to do. With all of the activities, pools, food and unmatched service, we think you should consider it for your next vacation.
