Having seen and stayed at many Dreams and AMResorts, you can tell that this property was not built as a Dreams. However, you can also tell that they have done quite a bit to the property to help bring it to Dreams standards, and I believe in a couple months, they will have accomplished this goal. The rooms were nice... More

Beautiful resort. Our view was incredible, the staff were friendly and attentive. Although there was construction they never started to early or finished to late. Hardly new they were working. The pools were well maintained, poolside towels were warm and abundant. The bartenders made good libations. We enjoyed margaritas, pina coladas, the daily drink specials were tasty too. The restaurants... More

Great spot for a great price! I have to say the reviews were making me pretty nervous, so I went in thinking this was going to be a dump. I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, there are some growing pains, but give this place a year and I bet it will be up to par with the other Dreams properties I... More

On arrival we were told we weren't book in for another 4 days, so we're given a different room from the one booked. This was sorted out the following day with a bit of shouting on my husband part. The room was fine apart from a very noisy air con unit which would have been a problem had it been... More

We recently returned from a 1 week stay at Dreams Sands (12/6/14 thru 12/13/14) - I was a bit nervous after reading a lot of negative reviews about the resort but I can honestly say I have NO complaints about this resort. Yes, it is a smaller resort in size/property space than some of the other places I have been... More

My husband and I, along with our two kids ages 8 and 10, stayed here and were pleasantly surprised. We got the "grand opening" half price special rate, so we thought it was an excellent value. If you paid full price, you might not feel the same. Pros: - Excellent service for the most part. The poolside bartenders and snack... More
