Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort & Spa

Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort & Spa is one of my top picks from the AMResorts Destination Wedding Fam!  It’s found in Puerto Aventuras, a private gated community located approximately 12 miles south of world famous Playa Del Carmen.  Puerto Aventuras is in the heart of the Riviera Maya, 56 miles south of Cancun.

Dinner at El Patio

Family-Style Reception Dinner

The first highlight of our visit was the wedding reception family-style dinner set up in the beautiful El Patio restaurant.  The water view from the wall of windows, the sparkling tree in the midst of the space, all the lighting and decor, made the look of the room absolutely magical.  Our menu consisted of an appetizer, Bruschetta with proscuitto, Bruschetta with proscuittoLettuce and Pear Salad with Caramelized Walnuts Vinaigrette, the main course, Beef Fillet and Shrimp, and for dessert, Wedding Cake.  Afterwards I would have gone home happy, but the night did not end there.  The second highlight was a bonfire on the beach with drinks, a variety of desserts, marshmallows for roasting, and a fire show for entertainment!

Dreams Puerto Aventuras did a wonderful job of providing a glimpse into the many things they have to offer.  That same evening while we were there, the resort was hosting an Oktoberfest themed dinner buffet for their guests set up around the pool area, and a couple was having an intimate wedding and reception on the beach.

Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort & Spa is a great place in a great location.  Not only is there an on-site dolphinarium with dolphins, sea loins, and manatees, but there are many activities, restaurants, and shopping within walking distance.  This is a fun, friendly resort, an enjoyable place for families and friends to gather!
