Stayed at this resort on a couple occasions, most recently about 10 months ago. Definitely in need of some renovations in the common areas. However, the service, location and restaurants were top-notch for the most part. We'll be keeping our eyes open for the reviews that come in once the resort reopens under its operators/management.

I loved this resort! The staff was friendly, the room clean, the drinks cold and the food fantastic! I am sorry that they are selling this resort to the Hyatt people, but they are building a new Dreams Resort closer to the main area of Puerto Vallarta and the Malacon. It will be close to the Secrets and Now Resorts.... More

We visited last September (2013) when this was Dreams Puerto Vallarta. Unfortunately I can't speak to the current state of this resort but when we went it was fantastic. The setting is gorgeous, we loved the private beach (a few vendors milling about with their wares, but not intrusive at all). Folks offering parasailing all day which was fun to... More

Family of four with a 10 and 12 year old for Spring Break with 3 other families. We all loved this place. The resort had a nice pool with very friendly staff. I played volleyball no the beach with the other guests and enjoyed the pool activities every day. The mountains are gorgeous and the beach was very pretty. The... More

Great view of the ocean. If you want just relax by the the pacific ocean with all the comfort, this is the place. Puerto Vallarta has been changing a lot and getting more international and less mexican but still unique.. It's at 6/7 km for the resort. Too many family with kids.

We stayed here in April 2014 and were pleasantly surprised. We ended up with a southern corner room near the top of the older tower that was amazing. The views from the room could not be beat and were something we will never forget. We were a little worried as we were booked to be there just before the resort... More

We had stayed here last year when it was the Dreams Puerto Vallarta resort. Overall our experience here was very pleasant. It was a very nice resort for it being all inclusive. The food at all of the restaurants was surprisingly very good with plenty of options to choose from. The drinks were always cold. Service was great. They also... More
