After 3 week of intensive travel, landing in Tulum with some of my favorite ladies for a girl’s press trip was exactly what I needed. We we’re hosted by the Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa and our friends at Mom Trends (you don’t know their site, check it out!). While I’m generally an adventurers with a long list of to when visiting Mexico, we didn’t leave the property. If you scroll to the bottom of the post though, I’ll list off some of my favorite to do’s for anyone doing an extensive stay). For our 2 night, 36 hour stay, downtime was definitely appreciated for a quick getaway. It was a nice change of pace to just relax at an all-inclusive resort, and have actual pool time and relaxation.
There’s something amazing about not having an agenda, and knowing the biggest decision you’ll have to make is pool or ocean. The all-inclusive resort featured incredibly views, several restaurants – El Patio (Mexican cuisine), Himitsu (Asian fusion), and Portofino, which features a wine cellar — several pools with full service and entertainment. We enjoyed everything from yoga on the beach, dance lessons, kayaking, tequila tasting, to an acrobatic show, and even a courtyard market that was set up by local vendors. The resort is nicely hidden and secluded along a white sand beach and very private. They also offer a number of green programs, tours and other on and off property activities so be sure to inquire upon arrival (or booking).
With garden landscapes, beach views, tropical surroundings, and a grandiose lobby featuring staircases on either side (it looks like a home straight out of Dynasty), there isn’t a shortage of picturesque moments – it’s an Instagrammers dream. They also have life size backgammon, chess, as well as shuffleboard and ping pong outside. We had a lot of fun doing photo-shoots on the property.
