We came on holiday to Mexico on 4th September and stayed at Dreams Sands, and we were very impressed! Having only been open for a few days we expected standards to not have yet been set and things to be in a bit of a muddle, but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff at hotel are extremely helpful. The entertainment... More

AM Resorts, GM Daniel Navarro and his team have done a fantastic job renovating this resort. My wife and I along with two other couples were here Sept 13-20. Location of this Cancun property to the beach is awesome and the view from the rooms is even better. Property is very easy to navigate...all rooms are very convenient to the... More

We were so close to cancelling our family reservation ( travelling with 2 yr old ) , however after ensuring my travel agent in the uk promised me the hotel would deliver on what it advertised and I would...

When we arrived it looked lovely, lobby was big and looked out onto the beach.. People took our bags as soon as we arrived and showed us... More

My experience with this beautiful resort was seriously damaged when my roommate and I had continuous problems with the door lock to our room #637. From the first time we tried to enter, our cards never worked. We had to exchange cards and had different staff members accompany us to the room 6 times on the first day, only to... More

We visited the hotel September 11-18, 2014 through Apple Vacations. the hotel bills itself as unlimited luxury and newest resort. I will speak to this in a moment but first the good things: Situated about 20 minutes from the airport in the heart of Cancun; staff was extremely courteous and wanting to please the guest; rooms were adequate but not...

This was out first time in Mexico as well as at an all inclusive resort. I was quite skeptical, looking at all the negative comments, but this place was outstanding. Every staff member, no matter their job, made you feel welcomed and made it their priority to make sure all your needs and wants are met. The beach is the... More
