Just finished our first week.. As an "unlimited Club " member they need to step up their game!!! You really have to push for things that you should already be having. Not the best Preferred club either. This is not a purpose built Dreams hotel. They have taken over from existing company about 8 months ago (just found out) It... More

I'm just back from 8 nights in Cancun staying at the Dream Sands. Overall i had a great time and loved Cancun but while Dream Sands has many very good qualities and i probably would stay again, it's not the dream its title might promise in all respects. On positive notes, the location is great_ lovely beachfront location 5_7 minute... More

Just came back from a week-long trip to Dreams Sands in Cancun and loved it. I heard many people complain about being harassed by time shares people and I can honestly say we were not troubled once (nor did I see anyone else bothered). Here is my appraisal of the resort. Food I thought the food was better than average.... More

. I have been using this hotel almost every year since 1995. This is my first and probably last time using a Dreams hotel. I was there from June 27 until July 18. The working personnel are great especially Lucero, Dana, and Nancy that work the beach area and lobby. I have travel extensively in the Caribbean, Europe, and Mexico... More

I stayed here my first time visiting Cancun. They were just finishing up remodeling this resort and a few things hadn't been ironed out, but overall I had a great time. The staff was so friendly. The beach was awesome! I went with my husband and another couple, and we had a blast. The only thing that I didn't like... More

Where to start? We spent the last 4 days in Playa and decided to come to Cancun for our last 3 days so we booked a room at Dreams Sands this morning, July 26th. The trouble started at check in. They had no record of my reservation even though I paid in full on their website and had email confirmation... More

My husband and I went to this resort on May 10-May15th. Originally we were reserved to stay in the standard room with balcony. We upgraded to the corner suite on the 8th floor. There we were able to spend our time in the preferred lounge with premium drinks and our own private selection of food. We even played many games... More
