“golf at under $100”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Dreams has a golf deal with the grand coral resort(30min taxis ride) that is very good. $85 from7am till 1pm and $50 after 1. Taxis costs are $36 each way(1-4 persons).Golf and taxis can be booked at the hotel and you bring you voucher to the course and pay there. We booked 4 times after 1 but always showed up before 1230 and got on almost at once. Played in 4hrs(it is dark at545)There are rentals at $45(pings) beverage cart(us prices) and nice on course washrooms.Bring your ball retriever as there is lots of water on the course. We brought our own clubs on westjet airlines for $23each way. Good course with nice people running it. i

I just wanted to write a quick review for all those potential DRC brides out there still trying to make the decision on if to hold your even at this resort or not. Stop looking for any other resort chain, this hotel was the most perfect place for my wedding. I did the Love package and paid for the DJ who was just great, I would suggest paying for his services. I had a dance floor on the pool deck, and the ceremony was just a breeze. I brought all my own decorations and little touches and lorena set everything up for me. I never had to stress. Everything was perfect. All my guests had the best time. This resort is a crowd pleaser. The rooms are spectacular, top shelf booze in the swim up, and the restaurants are among the best most of my guests have seen at a resort. I had a crowd who loves high end and top shelf, and who have frequented many 5 star resorts under the sun, and this was ranked high for everyone. Just go and see. You wont regret it.

We stayed at Dreams Riviera Feb 4th -10th this is a newer property and bigger than dreams Cancun. The hotel, Lobby, pools, beaches and resturaunts were great. We loved Pablo our pool side waiter who made us grasshoppers out of palm leaves. Eric the swing bartender was great also. I think the entertainment staff at Dreams Cancun was better that riviera and me being allegric to shellfish I had to miss out on a lot of amzing food choices at Dreams Rivieria.

This resort is a great place for families or couples, they balance both ends of the spectrum well and although I liked the more personilized service at Dreams Cancun I loved this property, and do understand it is bigger and tougher to provide the extra service as dreams cancun does.

Room Tip: Choose a room closer to the pool area it will be quiter and better views, plunge pool rooms probably...

You will encounter Sewer Smells here! The large white tanks on the South side of the property (near the Spa), beside building 2, are full of the sewage from the Dreams resort. When walking near this area, especially downwind, you will gag from the overwhelming sewage smell. Also, you will smell sewer gas every time you go into the World Cafe. They have a plumbing problem in the World Cafe and it's allowing sewer gas to escape into the restaurant. It's mostly on the side away from the food service buffet but the smell was there every time we went into the World Cafe. Staff fumigating with masks on while customers ate and did not warn. What chemicals are they using? is it in the water system . Also strong smells every time you walkninto bathrooms in public areas due to deodorizers also fragrance in tissues.. Could cause allergies. Was sick the whole time there.

Room Tip: 1500 south facing ocean 5th floor jacuzzi on patio.

My husband & i just returned from a week at dreams :). The resort is so well kept .....they are constantly cleaning and restocking. The staff work so hard and are happy to please the guests. A few staff that made our stay memorable were Al (resident manager), Iran & Efren ( Mexican restaurant), Gamaliel, Estrinova (beach), Jose, Rosealba, Estrinova, Libador, Luz, Rafael, Victor & Gerardo. The restaurants were all very good....we didn't eat at the buffet. The Mexican restaurant is soo much funny... ask for Iran! Weather was beautiful the whole time..we spent most of our time on the beach. Top shelf liquor at all the bars....if you don't see it just ask. My only comment would be if you don't have kids you might want an adult only resort as there are lots of kids especially in the pools.

My husband and I just took a four night babymoon to this resort, and it was incredible!! We didn't have to leave the resort for anything. They had plenty of restaurants, activities and entertainment to make us not want to leave the hotel AT ALL. Had I not been 6 months pregnant, we definitely would have left to do a few excursions, but we stayed around, got massages, swam in the pool and just relaxed. It was ideal. The food was delicious at all seven restaurants, the service was amazing and the room was wonderful. We stayed at one with a personal "dipping" pool, which was lovely on those hot days.

Also, the resort was both family friendly and couple oriented. While there were lots of kids there and plenty for them to do, it didn't get in the way if you wanted to have a "couples only" type of vacation that is more romantic. It was big enough where you had your own space, but small enough, where you got to know people and could enjoy the comraderie at the pool bar or pool activities.

I would definitely go back ....

Room Tip: If you can afford the little extra bit of money, go for the personal dipping pool, where you have yo...

Just returned and it was an okay resort. There are A La Carte restaurants but they do not accept reservations so be prepared for a wait when you want to eat. The only reservation that can be made is to sit at the cooking table in the Japanese Himitsu restaurant and this was by far our best meal of the week.
Main buffet is only average and does not change much during the week, also quite small so crowded and noisy. Food is good and the servers are nice but it should be bigger for the size of the resort.
Pools are nice but again small for the size of the resort. A couple of days the main Infiniti pool was absolutely crammed as it has the only access to a swim up bar. Swim up bar staff are often overwhelmed with the workload but do well considering.
Very small beach and really not swimable. Swimming area is buoyed off but quite small and no fish to see. Was at the Barcelo (south of Playa del Carmen) last year and the beaches and snorkeling are phenomenal. We did not see one person swimming in this Dreams resort beach the whole week.
Rooms were nice and the jacuzzi in the room is a nice touch. Resort is well cleaned and staff are friendly. One thing we found was our room was very noisy with cleaning ladies talking, laughing and sometimes yelling outside our door at 8 am. The disco Desires can be loud too but it shuts down at 1 am.
The nightly entertainment is average but the Friday night Rock Circus was fantastic. Lots of real good hard rock songs mixed with acrobats, a unique combination.
Overall, a decent resort but the Barcelo offered far better accommodations, beach and pools for the same cost. Lesson learned for us.

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms that are around 1430-1450 as the noise level is very loud.
