Its actually very easy to fall in love with Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa its hands down the best all inclusive resort we have been to yet! In just a few days this place stole our hearts and here’s why…
1. The food scene is amazing!
I don’t know about you guys but whenever we are going away to an all inclusive resort we research the hell out of it and to be quite frank we usually only concern ourselves with the food because mediocre food on vacation is a big no no! And so if the food reviews are great then we are on board. Also if you are anything like us you know you will be eating every hour so you better go somewhere where the food and drinks are absolutely delicious otherwise whats the point? With that said, Dreams Playa Mujeres absolutely knocks it out of the park in the food department… It has a 7 la carte restaurants that have an exceptionally large menu and so we barely ever went to the buffet. There is even a Brazilian steak house (first resort to have one in the Caribbean)! Faisal and I are big steak fans and one of our favorite restaurants in Toronto is a Brazilian steakhouse so when we found out Dreams had one, we were there every night.
Oh and its also worth mentioning that there 24 hrs room service is even better than some of the restaurants, we indulged in it every night – Margarita pizza and burger were our go to!
2.The property is 5 star all around!
Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort is set along a private stretch of beach in a gated community, so its very exclusive, This also means that the resort is massive! It encompasses 65,000 sq ft of swimming pools which means infinity pools, whirlpools and waterpark galore! And when I say water park, I am not talking about a measly splash pad, I am talking water slides and lazy river! Honestly when we first arrived, we thought oh the water park is probably just for kids but once we decided to give it a try , we became kids ourselves. I swear we probably went down the slides at least 10 times lol.
What we loved even more than the water park was the fact that there were so many cabanas all around the resort and not just on the beach. In fact one of our sweetest memory from our stay at Dreams Playa Mujeres has to be napping in the cabana bed after having too much to eat for dinner.
Okay lets move on and talk about the rooms or shall I say suites? Dreams Playa Mujeres didn’t spare any expense when designing the rooms and experience. Each suite is graciously appointed with a private terrace or balcony, daily refreshed mini-bar, rain shower, a Dreams Box for private 24-hour room service delivery and more. And if you are looking for ultimate luxury then its worth upgrading to a swim out suite! We stayed on the 2nd floor and had incredible views of the ocean and pool. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
3. Access to Secrets Playa Mujeres!
If you are 18 years and older you can access the adults-only Secrets next door which means double the entertainment, double the activities and double the food..you literally get two experience 2 resorts in 1! We went to Secrets just a few times, once to party at night (their club was pretty happening actually) and once to dine – they had a beautiful teppanyaki restaurant so we just couldn’t resist. We also spent some time by these fire pits which were placed right in the middle of the swimming pool (How romantic right?)Gosh i wish we were there right now:(
4. There’s something for everyone!
From water sports to cooking classes, from kid friendly foam parties to movie night under the stars there is literally something for everyone.
Honestly Dreams Playa Mujeres is perfect for everyone, whether you are on a romantic getaway, kicking it with friends or with family. At first we were a bit skeptical and thought okay we are going to a family friendly resort and that we will probably spend most of our time at Secrets but this really wasn’t the case. but even if it was, having the option to be able to be at an adults only resort just steps away was awesome. What really stood out to us at Dreams was the Kids Explore Club, Core Zone Teen Club and babysitting options. We will definitely keep this in mind when we have kids because we can only imagine how hard it must be to get some alone time in once you have a family.
5. Super Techy!
Because Dreams Playa Mujeres opened just a few months ago, its an understatement to say that its up to date on technology. The suites are super ‘teched’ out and even someone like me can appreciate that because it just made life so much easier. The rooms were equipped with Bluetooth speaker system, iPads and much more. What really impressed us was that you could order room service or ask for a wake up call straight from the iPads. Literally everything was well though out and there at your service.
What else was cool...
- They had a Swim up bar which was hidden behind a waterfall
- No wrist bands needed on site
- No dining reservations needed at all
- They are in the process of getting a Dolphinarium
- 2 bedroom villas available
- Presidential Suite with an ocean view terrace and infinity pool—perfect for private wedding ceremonies and bachelor parties
To be completely honest, we were a bit hesitant at first because we weren’t quite sure how we would like Playa Mujeres, See whenever we visited Cancun we always stayed on the main strip and found it to be really convenient. But Dreams Playa Mujeres was only 2o minute drive and so it wasn’t that bad. And believe me when I say it, it is totally worth visiting!
