Hotel for Wedding in the Riviera Maya - Dreams Riviera

14 JULY 2020

First of all, let’s talk about this fantastic place that is the Mexican Riviera Maya; it is an area that is reached through the airport of Cancun and is the big question of many couples who dream of getting married in Cancun, but want an area or a more exclusive hotel. Well, if that is the case, welcome to Dreams Riviera.


A hotel that combines elements of the Mayan culture, bringing a rustic touch to your Caribbean wedding, without losing its elegance – this is the Dreams Riviera.

Many couples come to us looking for a wedding in Cancun; however, many do not really know the options for wedding hotels in the Riviera Maya. We, as the adviser of your wedding, are always concerned with understanding the profile of the couple and their guests, and the exclusive region of the Riviera Maya is always indicated as an option for having incredible hotels, such as Dreams Riviera.

A resort for those who want an environment to rest and relax, enjoying a sensational all-inclusive, but who still want to have the option to go out and enjoy the night in Cancun.



The Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort Spa is a luxury hotel, awarded with four diamonds, an international evaluation where all the services are observed: attendance, drinks, food, cleaning, in addition to the staff’s warmth.

It is located 20 minutes away from the airport, 30 minutes away from the Cancun hotel zone and 30 minutes away from Playa del Carmen, which increases the options of tours to take during your Caribbean wedding trip.

The hotel rooms have one of the most different layouts we have ever seen! When you open the door you are faced with a large wooden panel that divides the room into two areas: the bathroom and the sleeping area. On one side, we have separate shower and bathroom cabins, which is very interesting for those friends who are sharing a room.

The bathtub is open to the bedroom, which can either bring an air of romance to a couple in love, or be practical when bathing children. Behind this panel is the bed, facing the balcony that can overlook the hotel’s garden or the tropical Caribbean rainforest.

That is, the Dreams Riviera apartments are perfect to meet the needs of each guest, regardless of their style.

Nevertheless, after planning and advising so many weddings in the Caribbean, we know that the hotel room is the cool and comfortable place we return to after a full day of enjoying all the benefits and activities that luxury hotels have to offer.

Dreams Riviera has three swimming pools, two Jacuzzis and a beautiful private beach for you to choose where you prefer to spend the day with your guests. The hotel also has a gym for those who want to keep their bodies healthy, a yoga studio with daily classes and a spa with various treatments so they can have all the relaxation during their destination-wedding trip, while Cheers takes care of all details!

The hotel offers several thematic restaurant options, in addition to the international buffet, which is one of the team’s favorites: very varied, fresh food and with an incredible breakfast. All six à la carte restaurants have vegetarian and gluten free options.

The Bordeaux restaurant – specializing in French cuisine, is for adults only and provides a beautiful gastronomic experience. We spent about two hours in the restaurant, enjoying each appetizer, salad, soup, main course and a delicious crème brûlée for dessert. And, when we informed the waiter that we had vegetarians at the table, he kindly offered to ask the chef to prepare a menu with suitable dishes. And everything was delicious!

Also worth noting is the hotel’s bar service, premium and international drinks are also part of the all-inclusive and both couples and guests can take advantage of this service in any of the five hotel bars: at the swimming pool and beach, at the wet bar, at the hotel’s nightclub, or in the beautiful lobby bar! You can choose between Caribbean drinks, whiskey, wine, beer or ask the bartender to prepare your favorite drink.

Regarding the scenarios for your big day, the only difficulty with Dreams Riviera is choosing your favorite! Be it an elopement wedding, mini wedding or a wedding for 100 guests or more, the hotel has beautiful areas for all wedding styles and number of guests.

Brazilians who are getting married in the Caribbean usually prefer outdoor ceremonies.

If the couple is keen to have their toes in the sand, the beach wedding is always an option, but the highlight for the wedding ceremony is the incredible straw gazebo, whose structure represents a diamond ring! It is so striking that almost no additional decoration is required.

There are several options for setting up dinner, regardless of the number of guests: we can continue with the celebration on the beach, or set up a beautiful party by the swimming pool and also on a charming deck by the sea.

However, my favorite option is the terrace above the Seaside Grill and Oceana restaurants, very close to the beach, in a very private area. This terrace can also be used for ceremonies, and is especially charming for mini weddings.

As the hotel is further away from the city, in any of these areas we have a beautiful moonlight to add the finishing touch!

In the hotel, it is possible to make the civil wedding and also the symbolic ceremony, which ends up being the most sought after.



At Dreams Riviera, as in most chain hotels, the packages are somewhat standardized: they are packages for 10 or 20 guests, include only the ceremony (suitable for elopement weddings) or ceremony, cocktail and dinner; each package has an option different from the menu and all include a basic setting, with no decoration.

It is part of our advisory service to help the couple to understand each of the packages and which package is more suitable to their profile, type of wedding, budget and how each one can be personalized to make their dream of getting married in reality come true. Riviera Maya – this region is so charming and close to Cancun.
