“wonderful resort, beach, staff and the most beautiful wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

we went there with our group after a Rocky start with Sunwing...over 10 hours delay with kids and elderly parents.
Dreams Villamagna made us forget it all.
We were planning to get maried on the beach and everything exceeded our expectations. The wedding planner ( Daniel Meza)did a wonderfull Job with every detail. We had purchased the ultimate wedding package but still needed to purchase a few extras. The fireworks made it all even more special. The photographer Brenda did a very good job. Still waiting for the video...

Restaurants were good especially the Italian.( Portofino)

We had stayed in the preferred section and it was so worth it . Every little attention we could have thiked of was made to make us feel ike royalty. The Conciere Janet was out of this world.

The beach was nice and even though we had kids and older persons in our group we all enjoyed swimming and taking long walks on the beach( this was not the case for our honeymoon at the Secret Vallarta-look for my review)

Rooms were well decorated , very clean , wonderful turndown service with great views of the ocean. we slept so peacefuly with the sound of the waves because the patio door are screened. Great!

It's a calm resort. Enough to keep you entertained but very relaxing.

There's so many things we liked at this resort that we would certainly return one day!

Room Tip: go for ocean view preferred...worth it

This resort is Amazing!! My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon January 18-25th and received the best service a person could ask for.When we arrived we asked for an upgrade to an ocean view and had no problem getting it.
The rooms were nice and our maid Paula did a great job every morning cleaning it, she even folded our dirty clothes! The jacuzzi on the balcony was amazing and made for a nice romantic night! The mini fridge was stocked daily with corona s, water, & pop.
The pools were good as well, the hot tub was nice and hot. The 1 st pool was warm, second pool was a little cooler and the third was really cold (not heated) but was nice for those hot hot days and you needed to cool off fast. The entertainment staff "Jonny & Ferny" made hanging around the pools pretty entertaining! They made sure you were having fun only if you wanted too. You dont want to miss the 3 pm Dance. We had no problem with getting served at the pools and beach. "Frank " was the best! He literally ran for you, he kept the drinks coming! He also took the time to hang out, tried to teach us some Spanish, threw the football around a bit too. He was a great server and friend! Another server that stands out was Jolio, he always had the drinks coming too. These two really went out of there way to make sure you were happy!
The restraunts were soo good! You didnt need any reservations for the al la cartes. The food in every restraunt was delicious! My favourite was the sea side grill, they have amazing steak, salmon, chicken wings, mozzarella sticks. A big Thanks to "Alex" our server, as soon as we stepped in the restraunt he knew exactly what we wanted and made sure we had it right away!
I have absolutely nothing to complain about! If you want to be treated like royalty, relax, and eat delicious meals, and have some ice cold drinks brought to you every 5 minutes then this resort is for you! I would definitely come back!

My family stayed at the Dreams Villamagna from January 18-25. There were 8 of us travelling - me, my husband, my parents, sister and brother in law and brother in law's parents. All of us enjoyed our time at this Dreams location.

Resort overview: We liked that this resort was in a gated like community and we felt it was secure. This resort is about 30 minute drive to the town of Puerto Vallarta. The resort is small which was great because it was a short walk to the pools, restaurants and beach.The spa is lovely and it was a great place to relax. See the daily newsletter for their daily specials. Our rooms were on the second floor - tropical view (facing the street) and it was directly above the ballroom terrace which was great if there was entertainment below. If you want quiet, you might want to change rooms. The rooms were clean, bed is comfortable and we liked that there was a separate living room area for sitting as well as the balcony. We would have preferred an enclosed bathroom instead of just a curtain partition however the double sinks were a plus. The food overall was average and found some of the dishes salty. We tried all the restaurants at least once. I preferred the food at Oceana and Seaside Grill and enjoyed the specialty nights at the World Cafe buffet. My parents and brother in law's parents enjoyed the World Cafe and ate there the most. We enjoyed the different bars on the resort, Sugar Reef during the afternoon or Rendezvous or Marlin before dinner or Sky Bar to hang out and enjoy the view.

Resort Service: The service at this resort is amazing. Since this was a small resort staff remembered us in the restaurants we frequented most. We enjoyed the occasional Spanish Lessons over breakfast. Everybody worked hard to make our stay great. Special acknowledgements to: Claudia, Jesus M., Sabino, Martin and Ricardo from the World Cafe for taking care of us the many times we ate there together or separately and always remembering we were a party of 8. Nicolas and all the Bell Boys for greeting us everyday, getting us transportation quickly and kindly changing our money to small bills (lol). Bartenders Cristian & Miguel for keeping the tequila flowing, Rodo for bringing the drinks to us and Pato for entertaining us. The staff is outstanding and the service is the best part of this resort.

Few things that we did not like about the resort:
The people trying to sell time shares. On the first day, after checking in we were approached to watch a presentation over breakfast. We declined and after that we were not asked again, however twice we were waiting in the lobby and if the sales staff happen to chat with you, they would casually slide it into the conversation.
The food quality was average and found some of it to be salty especially the soups. We also found that some items on the buffet were re heated from dinner for breakfast the next day.

We had a great time and the staff at this resort is fantastic. We would stay at a Dreams Resort again.

This was our 4th AI vacation in Nuevo Vallarta, and the most enjoyable. Dreams is smaller and quieter than the others (Decameron, riu palace, Marival) which was a nice change. From no wristbands to no need for dinner or beach/pool chair reservations, the relaxed atmosphere here was great. We walked the beach early every morning, and were amazed at the rush to reserve beach chairs at other resorts (at 8am, every chair at the Marival next door had a towel on it, this just didn't happen at dreams). There was never any anxiety or rush over dinner, we would have a martini and sushi at the rooftop bar, then wander past the restaurants and enjoy whatever we felt like at that time.
The staff were great and management responded quickly to our only complaint (bathtub drain wasn't sealing). While we had a terrific experience here, I may not recommend it to younger travellers, as there is no nightlife here, if you want late night dancing and partying, go elsewhere. Otherwise, this is the first of the Nuevo area resorts we would like to return to.
Ps. The romantic dinner on the beach they offer was absolutely fantastic.

January 14 to 24 2013 was our third time at this resort, and we were very happy we chose to stay 10 days. The hotel is exceptionally clean. Everyone, including the staff who do not interact directly with guests, such as cleaning staff were very friendly. I really enjoyed the morning stretch/yoga classes with Pato and then Erin and aqua aerobics at noon while my husband utilized the gym. This is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere with great food and wonderful imported wines at every meal. The beach is endless and clean. We plan to return next year.

This was the best vacation we've all had! We were a group of 5, my husband, his parents and our 7 year old son. We thankfully took a little longer than usual vacation this year and stayed there January 17-26.
Let me start by saying this was our 8th time and my in laws 11th time in Mexico. We have been to numerous hotels and nothing compares to our stay at Dreams.
From the moment you arrive you will be treated like kings and queens! Eric had fresh mimosas and looked after our luggage for us. Check in was fast and efficient. Time share/spa speech had to be cut short though because we were not interested. They try to talk you into accepting free coupons for the spa. I guess they are just doing their job but a little annoying after a day of travelling.
Rooms: Very clean and well looked after. Fridge was stocked daily, turn down service at night was a nice touch also. We had an adjoining room which was also nice. The beds were so comfortable...Mexico has a reputation for the hardest beds! At past resorts we wondered if there even was a mattress or just the box spring!
Food/Drinks: There are numerous choices/options throughout the day. We usually started with room service for our coffee fix with a little fresh fruit and toast. The world cafe is such a wonderful variety for breakfast (Javier and Josue are the best waiters!!!), lunch or dinner. It's also nice that you can go to the a la carte restaurants without making a reservation, no limits. My husband and father in law had the NY strip steak nightly at either the seaside/Oceana restaurants. Comparable to the Keg! Hector looked after us. Very professional. He knew my son preferred his pasta just steamed and remembered this every time we came in. My son thought it was funny when Hector would bring his pasta over to him without even ordering it!
The pool/beach waiters are the most efficient bunch I have ever seen! Patrico, Francisco, Rodo and many more all ver friendly and happy to keep you hydrated!!
Beach: The beach was the most "walkable" of any we have been to. You could walk either direction for hours. The ocean waves were quite small at the beginning of our stay so we were all able to go in for a dip. Towards the end of the week it got a little rough because of high tide.
Pools: There are 3 pools to choose from depending on what temperature you prefer! The entertainment staff Corona, Piwee, Ferny, Mitch, Pato all make sure you are having fun and enjoying yourselves. Such a great group of wonderful people!!!
Golfing/excursions: My husband golfed 3 times at Vista Vallarta. Eric at the bell hop stand looked after my husband and made sure he got on his way.
we went on a snorkelling 1/2 day trip arranged through Miguel our rep with Air Canada. It was so amazing! The best group of fellows you could meet. We purchased the video of our day for $30 US which was promptly delivered to our hotel the following morning.
My husband and Father in law also went on a fishing charter. This was also arranged through Miguel. They had a great day and the boat brought in big Mahi Mahi's! Everybody took turns reeling them in.
Entertainment: Nightly entertainment shows were really well done and enjoyable. They also have TV/ nightly movies etc.
Overall: You will not be disappointed with this resort. It has everything you need/want and trust me you will never be thirsty or hungry! It is a 30 minute drive if you want to go into town and explore PV or do a little shopping. There are souvenir type items available for sale on the beach via a little "store" or the vendors strolling along the beach. I'm usually one to feel the need to get out and explore or walk to see the sights but felt quite content to just relax and enjoy the resort. Didn't feel the need to really leave the resort at all!!!
Such great memories and already can not wait to go back!!!

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor which wasn't quite high enough for a full ocean view but still had a pa...

My husband, son, daughter-in law and our six year old grandson, Ryan enjoyed staying here from Jan.17th - 26th 2013. Our whole experience from the time we arrived to departure was terrific! All the staff are friendly, helpful and hard working.The rooms are large,clean and beautiful. The food was delicious in all the restaurants.Hector at the Oceana made sure Ryan had his plain pasta. Loved the room service! The waiters at the beach and pools did an outstanding job! The Sushi Sky Bar was a favorite to watch the sunset and have a drink.The shows in the evening were family appropriate and very entertaining! The guys went on Mike's fishing trip, had a good time. We all went on a half day snorkeling trip, recommended by Miguel, our Air Canada rep. Saw whales and dolfins, the music and lunch were great. It was an awesome day! Our son enjoyed golfing, the conciege was very helpful with that! The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, in Mexico We will definitely come back! Sandra G.
