The 431-room Dreams Tulum is an all-inclusive megaresort in a secluded location near Mayan ruins and about a 40-minute drive from Playa Del Carmen. It offers sprawling, manicured grounds, plenty of amenities, and a white-sand beach that is one of the most tranquil in the area. However, the hotel's massive size means that the wait for a seat at dinner can be long, and the overall ambience may seem more impersonal than intimate. Rooms are large and feature a blend of colonial furnishings and high-tech amenities, such as iPod docks. Charges for services such as in-room Wi-Fi use, though, may leave some guests feeling nickel-and-dimed.
