Our little family of 4 (including son's ages 9 and 6) descended upon the Dreams Sands Cancun resort for a 5 night stay in August of 2015. Overall it was a great vacation. The Dreams brand hotels are very kid friendly and they have an onsite children's club, which we utilized for our boys every day for just a few... More

My husband and I had a great vacation at this resort 8/23-28, 2015. We booked the corner suite oceanfront room and it was very nice. The views were spectacular from the 10th floor. The service was excellent and everyone works very hard to make you as comfortable as possible. Our favorite beach server, Caesar kept us well hydrated at all... More

Last week, my best friend and I came to Cancun for a 4 day “mother’s getaway”. We used Hotwire.com to book an all-inclusive resort that looked really good on paper and even had a recommendation from someone my friend and I trust. Once we arrived at the resort, it was nothing like Hotwire advertised. Their dining choices were poor and... More

I was very excited about taking my husband to Cancun since he had never been there and I had been bragging about the beaches and resorts. I had been to numerous resorts in Cancun and hadn't ever been disappointed. Dreams is part of the Now resorts and I had fallen in love with Now Jade. So when we arrived at... More

We really enjoyed our stay with our family and friends at Dreams Sands this past July. We went for our friends wedding which was absolutely beautiful and perfect! The wedding coordinators did an excellent job! The food at this resort was the best we've had at an AM Resort property. The staff and entertainment team were amazing! The nightly entertainment...

I will start by saying that I am a Palace Elite member, and have stayed at a Palace resort for the last 7 years, at least 10 times. We decided to try something different, since we have been to Palace so many times. We have stayed at Dreams Vallarta before becoming Palace members, and had a great time, so we... More

My best friend and I went here for a 4 day mothers getaway. We originally booked at another all-inclusive in Cancun and were very disappointed when we got there. We were able to transfer to Dreams Sands and were incredibly happy that we did. The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside but it is actually very luxurious and... More

I booked our holiday with DreamsSands online with a tourist agency, an official partner of the hotel in May. I paid for our four nights, and got my confirmation via email from the hotel that they were looking forward to seeing us in July, but upon our arrival we were told at reception that our booking had been cancelled and...
