We just got back from a second time at Dreams Puerto Vallarta. Check in was so quick (as we stayed in the Preferred Tower again). We had the room with the jacuzzi on the balcony and it was awesome. A nice added touch to an already amazing room. Our maid (Victoria) was so kind, thorough and a pleasure to see every morning. Food for dinner was hit or miss a few times. Oceana actually told us one night that they were so overwhelmed that we had to order all our food at once or it would be a long wait until our food came out. Not really what you want to hear when you are on vacation. Sea bass at Portofino was TERRIBLE. Mussels were outstanding there. Also, at Oceana, make sure you get the escargot!!!!! Lunch buffets were always great!! So many choices. Especially the pasta bar. YUMMY!!!! Seaside Grill was good for their seafood (Salmon). Steak on the other hand was on the tougher side. Hot tub at the adult side was "filthy" 3 out of the 7 days. YUCK!!!! Plenty of Palapas on the beach. Vendors are not a problem. Just politely tell them "no thank you" and they leave you alone (even with a smile on their face). We went fishing. A local vendor is allowed on the property and took my husband and I out for 5 hours. Manuel (the captain) was very accomodating. We had a wonderul time. We caught a 40 lb. Jack Crevelle. Weather was amazing. We would highly recommend this resort for families also. When we were there, there were kids, but never a problem. They have so many activities for the kids that they are occupied pretty much all day. The swim up bar/pool could definitely use a make over! Service at the bar was very very very slow. Pool is very small, on the dirty side and very limited seats with umbrellas.
All in all... we had a great time. Just some suggestions to Dreams. Possible updates would not hurt the property whatsoever.
