When you think of Cancun you probably don’t think family vacation. Admit it, you probably think of it as Spring Break central.
But Cancun is a place for more than just college kids with steam and energy to burn off. It’s a majestic and magical paradise with something for the whole family to enjoy.
This is due largely in part to the resorts that line the beaches of Cancun. They work pretty hard at creating an environment that’s suitable for everyone from young adults, to families with children, to retirees finally enjoying some downtime.
Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort is the Whole Package
Dreams Riviera Cancun is one of those resorts. It’s a place where tropical luxury meets Disney-level entertainment. There are plenty of activities to keep your kids busy. You can enjoy many of them together as a family, but you’ll also have opportunities to enjoy some separate fun too.
What could be better? You get the best of both worlds. You get happy kids who aren’t bored for a single second of their vacation, and you get to add some color to your winterized skin.
So before you write Cancun off the list of possible family vacation sites, take a look at all the wonderful things that the Dreams Riviera Cancun resort has to offer. It might not be quite the vacation spot you were expecting, but it can be everything you’ve imagined.
The Price is Right
Vacations are expensive. By the time you factor in transportation, food, and lodging for the whole family, you’re looking at a pretty sizeable investment. Which is probably why so many of your family vacations wind up as trips to visit grandparents.
But not this time. This time the Dreams Riviera Cancun resort is on your side. They want you to have a special getaway with your family. In fact, they want it so bad that they run specials where kids stay, play, and eat free.
Restrictions do apply, so you’ll want to make sure you read the fine print. If you have kids that fall within the age requirements then you can save a bunch on food alone, plus you don’t have to pay additional fees for having more occupants in your room.
If you happen to be traveling when these specials aren’t running, have no fear! The prices are a lot more reasonable for an all-inclusive resort than you might think.
The All-Inclusive List is Long
Budgeting for a family is tough work. You know this because you coupon clip. You buy off-brand Pop Tarts for your kids. You have a Target card because saving that 5% is crucial. In fact, you budget all year round, non-stop, to provide the best for your family.
Wouldn’t it be nice to take a break from all the price checking and budgeting when you’re on vacation?
That’s the advantage of all-inclusive resorts. With a few minor exceptions and additional fees, the price you book your vacation for is what it will cost you. You don’t have to skip dessert when you go out for dinner. You don’t have to pass on a second cocktail because drinks are pricey.
In short, you don’t have to worry about money after you book your vacation. Well, you will have to buy your kids some key chains and whatever ocean themed stuffed animals they can find, but that, you can handle.
And when it comes to Dreams Rivera Cancun resort, their all-inclusive offer covers a whole lot of activities. Enjoy limitless access to their gourmet restaurants without a reservation, top shelf liquors for the adults, and limitless fruit juices and sodas for anyone else.
Take advantage of 24-hour room service too! Your whole family will get a kick out of ordering off the room service menu. Have breakfast in bed, or a midnight snack during movie time. It’s your call, but however you do it, you are sure to make some lasting memories for your kids.
They’ll feel like they are vacationing like rock stars, and you won’t have to tell them any different.
The all-inclusive package also includes your fill of pool time, a private resort beach, and practically limitless daily activities.
Enjoy, wine tastings, dance lessons, cooking classes, and movie screenings on the beach under the stars. And the list goes on… you can learn about tequila, take Spanish classes, or practice yoga.
You might not even have time to fit it all in, but don’t let that stress you out. You’ll be able to do a little bit of everything, and no one in your family will get bored.
Dreams Riviera Cancun also takes advantage of the wonders of the beach, and they can help you do the same. You can go sailing, go snorkeling, and kayak in the ocean. All of these activities are included in your all-inclusive price. It’s an incredible bargain when you break it down, and it makes for an unbeatable vacation.
Of course you can’t beat that time on the beach with your family. Camp out under a giant umbrella or a private cabana and watch your kids have a blast. You can catch up on some reading, catch a few z’s, or ride the waves with your kids. The sand is pure and white, and the water is as clear as can be. Plus, you don’t have to battle all of Cancun for a prime spot on the sand.
You Can Get Time Away from Your Children
Nothing makes for a great family vacation like time away from your family. Well, at least a little time anyway. Of course you’re looking forward to spending quality time with your kids, but a little space can go a long way. For everyone. Your kids need a little time to themselves just as much as you need time to yourself.
Dreams Riviera makes that easy to do. You have 2 options for getting alone time, or a little alone together time.
The Explorer’s Club runs daily from 9am to 10pm, and it has a staff of Red Cross certified supervisors who lead your children through all sorts of fun activities that revolve around science, nature, and exploration. They’ll spend time making arts and crafts, learning at the planetarium, and testing their strength at the pyramid shaped climbing wall.
There’s also a ball pit, an elaborate playground, and lots of weekly competitions. They can build sandcastles, create their own piñata, and go on treasure hunts. Meanwhile, you can catch a little well-deserved relaxation and get better acquainted with the sun, the surf, and a strong drink.
The Dreams Riviera resort also offers a babysitting service at an additional fee. The rates aren’t that much steeper than what you would pay your neighborhood teenagers, but there is a transportation fee charged after 11pm. Also, their cancellation policy is pretty strict.
Still, it’s worth it to enjoy a night out. Indulge in a meal that doesn’t come with chicken fingers, and maybe even take a romantic stroll along the beach.
The Rooms Are Phenomenal
What’s another word for paradise? You’ll want a thesaurus handy on your trip so that you can let everyone know what an amazing time you’re having. The 486 rooms of the resort have recently been upgraded with new bedding, better TV’s, and brighter décor. They all include air conditioning, satellite TV, marble bathrooms, a jet whirlpool with separate shower, and a private furnished balcony or terrace.
The Premium Deluxe Garden and Tropical View rooms are the least expensive in the resort and they feature your choice of a king sized bed or 2 doubles and beautiful views of the tropical surroundings. You can watch the palm trees sway in the wind from your terrace, and it comfortably sleeps 4.
The Premium Deluxe with Plunge Pool option is the one that your kids will probably go wild over, and for a few dollars more per person, it’s worth it. You get the same great standard amenities, your choice of a king or 2 doubles, and great tropical views. You also get a spacious terrace, but this one has its own private plunge pool.
That’s right. Your room will have its own private terrace pool. Your kids will flip, which is why you shouldn’t even tell them about this amazing amenity until they see it for themselves. Get your cell phone out and start recording because their reactions just might go viral.
Of course you can enjoy this small private pool too. You don’t’ have to jostle for a position on a good chair around the main pool, and you can wake up and walk right out into the sun and water. If you’re quiet, you might even get out to the terrace undetected and enjoy a few peaceful moments in the morning to yourself before your families’ day begins.
The Premium Deluxe Ocean View room is the last room option included for those who aren’t preferred members. It sleeps up to 4, and it has a balcony or terrace with beautiful ocean views. It’s the perfect room if your family loves the beach.
If it’s important to you to be able to wake up and see the waves or watch the sunset over the water from your room, then the ocean view is worth the extra money. After all, if you’re at the beach, you want to feel like it.
Fine Dining at Its Finest
The Dreams Riviera Cancun resort offers lots of restaurant options to keep you well fed without having to worry about finding a place, or paying extra. The options include Italian dining, fresh seafood, authentic Mexican cuisine, Pan-Asian faire, two grill restaurants, a French fine dining experience, and an international buffet.
The dining experience ensures that there is something for everyone. Even if you have a picky eater in your midst, as every family does, you won’t have to pull your hair out finding them something to eat.
And the locations can’t be beat. Several of the restaurants, like the Seaside Grill are open-air and right along the beach. You get to dine in full view of the water, and you can listen to the sound of the waves. You could get used to that, right? There’s nothing like eating dinner right along the beach, and you can do it whenever you like.
The resort also has a program called Sip, Savor and See that allows you to visit the restaurants of participating resorts in the area. You simply make arrangements with the concierge by 3pm, and you can enjoy any of the participating restaurants at no additional charge. You can even enjoy the bars and nightlife of these other resorts as a part of your package.
Okay, so you can eat almost anywhere, enjoy food inspired by all parts of the world, and not have to worry about the final bill? Yes, and more importantly, you can feed your family for your entire stay without having to make a run to the grocery store, or fix a single meal yourself. Now that’s a vacation.
