Dreams Natura Resort & Spa- Review

In my continued efforts to show what travel looks like in a covid-19 world, I recently headed back to Cancun to tour properties. In my findings I am seeing that Mexico is doing an amazing job at keeping capacity at bay while and adhering to safety for travelers. Your personal level of comfortability plays a huge role in if travel is right for you right now. I am here to share my experiences and offer travel advice to those who are looking to travel.

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the brand new and highly anticipated, Dreams Natura Resort & Spa.

Inspired by the surrounding Mayan jungle, the all-new Dreams Natura Resort & Spa will offer a unique UnlimitedLuxury® experience. Facing the Caribbean Sea on a white sand beach, the 553-room resort is a short 10-mile drive from the Cancun International Airport. Enjoy the best of both worlds with modern design and luxury accommodations infused with elements of nature including a lazy river. Rest and relax at the Dreams Spa by Pevonia® – designed to look like the region’s remarkable cenotes. Play in the water park or enjoy the infinity pool.

The Travel Experience

I’ve been flying out of Ohare (ORD) exclusively since July and I’ve been fairly pleased with the measures they are taking. I am finding that if you take earlier flights out of ORD the airport is much less crowded. It seems to get crowded around 10:00 am.

American Airlines makes several announcements at the gate and during boarding about their mask policy. In addition, you are reminded that food and beverage service has been temporarily suspended. They welcome you to bring your own snacks and non-alcoholic drinks on board. For more information on their clean commitment and mask policies, click here.

As we boarded, I got my Clorox wipes prepared because it can be hard to search through your bag once on board. I do feel it is up to you and the airline to sanitize your space so I bring plenty of gear with me. When I wipe things down, I pay special attention to seatbelts, tray tables, and headrests both on my seat and in front of me.

The flight went off as normal without any issues whatsoever. I love that American asks their passengers to remain seated during the deplane process. On this flight and our return, everyone remained seated as we deplaned one row at a time. Very nice!

Resort Transfers

In flight, your flight attendants  will offer you your immigration paperwork, IF there is enough. On our flight, they ran out of sheets. I like mine filled out in advance because I do not like doing it once I am off the plane. You will thank me for giving you THIS LINK to fill out your paperwork in advance so you can walk right by people who had to step aside to fill in their paperwork. Make sure you print your form in color, and each traveler will need their own.

The wait-time will depend on the time of day you arrive. This time there was only a 10-minute line. Mexico did have social distancing reminders throughout the line and they made several announcements. Once you make it through immigration, you can then proceed to grab your luggage.

It was so nice to have our luggage already waiting for us at our carousel…we grabbed and went!!

Here’s the airport map which will show you how to find your AmStar driver. Your Guru Travel Advisor will send you a map for your destination before travel.

As you exit the airport to the transfer area, we looked for our AMStar Representative who wears a blue flowered shirt. AmStar is my very favorite transfer service in Mexico! You can opt for a shared, private, or private deluxe transfer. We opted for a private transfer.
