We just returned and had a great time. It was or third Dreams experience and we have enjoyed each one (we also stayed at a Secrets last year). Food and drinks are plentiful and good quality (if you are a scotch drinker like my husband they had Johnny Walker black if you ask, it just isn't displayed). We are not... More

I am a bit late reviewing this hote so some things may have changed since May. My family and I visited the Dreams Sands for a week. I did like the resort, but it was a bit smaller than what I am used to. The beach was beautiful and the hotel was very clean. My husband did get extremely ill... More

The Food and Service was the best. We would go to this Resort again. The Bartenders were fun and hard workers. Top shelf booze and fresh made to order food. All staff were friendly and sincere to help you if you had any questions.

By far the best restaurant and the best service in the hotel. If you get Jaime Lopez he will look after you better than any waiter in Cancun. Mind you we had no complaints about any of the staff at Dreams but Jaime made the extra effort. My wife and me dined there with both our mothers and enjoyed it... More

It is to bad the storm in November has taken part of the beach but we were assured that it will be fixed very soon. The delay is not from the resort but from... More

We wanted a king-size so they moved... More

We were greeted with cold towels to put around our necks and a glass of champagne while we were checking in. We also got a free upgrade to the "Honeymoon Suite" and were able to check in 2 hours early. Service was great the entire time. I know all trips don't go like this, but this was my 2nd great...

This was a great trip! It was a family trip for 7 days and we celebrated a milestone Bday. We had 1 issue with our room, where we did not get what we booked, but they made it right and upgraded us to a suite after two days incorrect room type. And the Beach is not that big, but none... More
