The Complete Guide for a Dreams Playa Mujeres Wedding

Here is our first-hand experience of the resort and our complete guide with all the information you will need to know about planning a Dreams Playa Mujeres Wedding.

The Dreams resort is part of the AM Resorts chain of hotels that promise unlimited luxury. It did not disappoint.

It is a family-friendly hotel, and we’ve been there quite a few times. Our teens were impressed by the teens club and the variety of games and sports, the room service, and the friendliness of the staff.

We are always impressed by the food (wow, the food!) and the service was AMAZING. Additionally, I have to mention that the last time we were there it was the American Thanksgiving, and despite the hotel being at 100% capacity, the team there was attentive and had planned ahead to make things run as efficiently as possible.

Pros and Cons of Dreams Playa Mujeres


  • The resort is huge! You will always have a spot for you to relax and have a good time without feeling crowded and super busy.
  • Food options are aplenty. You will not get bored of eating at the many delicious restaurants here.
  • The beach is amazing. Just like at most resorts in the Playa Mujeres area.
  • Kids and teens will have a blast during their stay at the incredible water park, the kids, and the teens club.


  • The resort is so popular for weddings, that there is barely any availability. You need to book as soon as possible to secure a wedding date and a room block!
  • For those wanting to leave the resort and explore the town, it may be tiresome to go back and forth from the resort after a few days.
  • There is a dolphin swim facility on site. This can be a pro or a con depending on your own preferences, but anyone who has an issue with animals in captivity will not want to stay here.

Rooms and Sections

The rooms were super spacious, and with the two teen boys, we even had connecting rooms which made the stay that much easier. One of the perks of this job is that we visit and stay at hotels often. The downside is that I am not easily impressed. The Dreams Playa Mujeres left us wanting a much longer stay which does not happen all that often.

The Preferred Club offers elevated services and amenities, exclusive dining venues, a lounge with premium drinks, complimentary access to the hydrotherapy area of the Spa, and access to the lazy river at the Villa Section. The villas offer expansive areas with a kitchenette and dining area, a jacuzzi on the terrace, and gorgeous views of the property and the beach.

The Beach at Dreams Playa Mujeres

All resorts in the Playa Mujeres and Costa Mujeres area have an incredibly large and beautiful beach, and Dreams Playa Mujeres is no exception.

The waters are calm and deep blue. The best part is that seaweed barely hits this zone, so it’s pretty clear the whole year.

Food & Drinks

6 restaurants and 12 bars will surely satisfy all your cravings. Find a Brazilian Steakhouse, Japanese and French cuisine, Mediterranean, and Mexican, an international buffet, a salad and wrap place, grilled snacks, and my favorite, a super cute coffee shop with top tea and coffee and all-you-can-eat gelato and desserts.

Promotions for Dreams Playa Mujeres Weddings

The Dreams Playa Mujeres offers a free destination wedding. This package is called the Wedding in Paradise Package and essentially includes a free wedding ceremony for up to 10 guests, including basic set up, sparkling wine, and wedding cake. You can add on more guests if you have more than 10 for a minimal cost per extra guest.

In order to get the package for free, you book a preferred club junior suite ocean view or higher for at least 7 nights or have the equivalent of 15 room nights in that category or higher (your group books 5 rooms for 3 nights each). In the case that you do not have the required room nights, the package cost is $999.

You need to consider that the ceremony times for the free packages, tend to be allocated earlier in the day, so chances are, your ceremony will be scheduled at 11 am or 1 pm. You can also use this package as a vow renewal. For smaller more intimate wedding groups or if you just really want to have the ceremony or vow renewal and celebrate elsewhere (a catamaran trip is always fun) this is a great option and a good way to keep your destination wedding costs down.

5. Central Garden // 6. Oceanfront Presidential Suite // 7. Beach // 8. Mermaid Terrace

Paramount Suite

Dreams Playa Muejeres Paramount Suite Wedding

The Paramount Suite is another great option for a private destination wedding venue. You need to reserve the Paramount Suite for a minimum of two nights and you can use it for up to two wedding events. The stunning ocean-view rooftop area has a capacity of 80 guests for the wedding ceremony or 60 people for a cocktail and reception. Again, despite being private, we do need to check wedding availability prior to reserving the suite.

Beach area for Weddings

The beach area can be used for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and reception dinners and can accommodate a group of up to 250 guests.

The curfew for the beach areas depends on the season as from April to November, there is no light permitted after a certain time as it is turtle season and this interferes with the laying/hatching process.
Therefore, from May 1st through until November 30th, the curfew is 9 pm, however, from December 1st through until April 30th, the events can continue until 11 pm.

This area has a capacity of 200 guests. You can use the nearby beach area for cocktail hours, and reception dinners.

Wedding Gazebo

The use of the Ocean Front Presidential Suite for your wedding events requires a minimum 3-night reservation. This suite is not available for general reservations on any website, so if you need availability or rates, let us know and we can help. Although this wedding venue is completely private, we also need to check wedding availability as well as the suite availability to ensure that the team of staff is available for your big day.

This area has a capacity of 80 people for the ceremony and cocktail hour. If you have been searching for an option that allows for a platform over the pool for your ceremony, this is it. The reception in the Presidential Suite can host 60 guests in the main terrace area, or 30 guests if you prefer to use the rooftop area.

Central Garden Wedding Platform
