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

Went here for a friends wedding. It was simply amazing. The rooms are so cozy and clean. Cleaned everyday and restocked. The food was delicious! The beach, beautiful. Been to mexico 6 times and this is the best place I have ever stayed at.

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

This hotel property has been our vacation destination for 20+ years. It was originally Camino Real, then Dreams, soon to be Hyatt Ziva. We are anxiously waiting to make a reservation for December just as soon as the hotel permits. We agree with previous posters: the property has traditional old Mexico charm, the beach is wonderful, landscaping is beautiful, and... More

I have stayed at the dreams twice in the past two years and out of 11 trips to Mexico, the ones to the Dreams Puerto Vallarta were the best. It is so sad to hear that the resort is changing hands. All of the beautiful old mexican details made the resort so unique and unlike anywhere else I have ever... More

I have stayed many times at this hotel. Years ago it was known as the Camino Real, then it became the Vallarta Dreams. I have yet to stay there as a HYATT but as long as they keep their staff and operations the same your stay can only be great! Whatever the name this hotel is a winner. Perfect location... More
