Rooms & Sections

Being an AmResort, the Dreams Natura offers the regular rooms and the Preferred Club rooms.

The Beach at Dreams Natura Riviera Cancun

The beach is soft and white. You can walk for miles in either direction but to one side there is a hotel under construction and to the other, it is deserted.

The ocean water is blue-ish, but due to the location in Riviera Cancun, it is not your typical Turquoise ocean water. There are no rocks on entry for swimming.

Food & Drink

The Dreams resorts are known for high-quality food and drink. In addition to have access 24 hours and having room service included, this resort offers 10 dining options.

You do not need to make reservations for the a la carte dining (minus Teppanyaki tables, see concierge) and they have pagers so if they are full for whatever reason when you arrive, you can go for a stroll or grab a drink at the bar and they will page you when your table is ready.

The 6 bars will offer both domestic and international options for drinks.

Activities, Sports and Kids Club

There is a full daytime schedule for activities, classes and sports that take place in various locations throughout the property.

Nightly entertainment is provided and will vary between live music performances and shows.

The kids club is available to those aged 3-12 and open daily. The teen lounge is the place your teens will never want to leave – it has video games, table games and its own snack area.

Waterslides, a lazy river and a glider (zipline type of thing) top off the list of things to keep you and your loved ones busy.

Exchange Privileges with Dreams Natura

The AmResorts have a program they call Sip, Savor and See. What this means is that you can dine around the other Dreams Properties and explore the sister-resorts.

There are six more resorts in the area which are the Dreams Vista and Dreams Sands on the Cancun hotel strip, the Dreams Playa Mujeres, the Dreams Puerto Aventuras, the Dreams Tulum and the Dreams Riviera Cancun which is the closest one.

Transportation is not included, see the on-site concierge for more details.
