This is the best hotel ever from the service from the staff to the food and right on the beach it's Heaven! They have nightly entertainment live singers that are great and even though there are children there it's so romantic you will get lost just enjoying the scenery and the drinks that flow continuously! Ask for Luis he will... More

Stayed here with a friend for a week in September. We had a lovely time and enjoyed every moment of it. The food in the buffet was great always different things each night and it cooked in front of you. Plus salads, fruits and deserts. The waiters on the beach were fab! Special mention to Jorge and Gerson who looked... More

This hotel is fine. However you can tell it's age in the outdoor areas... the pools are very shallow and the beach is nice enough but has a horrible smell. The staff really are as amazing as everyone says! The rooms are also lovely with a super comfy bed. The biggest let down is the food. Really average. Entree and... More

It was a great resort. Food is amazing which was important to me being that I travelled with my 6 year old and 5 month old! The preferred upgrade is really not needed because there is no wrist band to differentiate really which is the bad part. I loved Bordeaux restaurant especially waiter Jonas! The chef Jose! The manager Lidia!... More

Had a very nice time with friends @ Dreams sands n Cancun, the hotel staff was great but the place is jst average. The location is perfect to get into town by walking. Also the food in the restaurants is good, Loved the seafood restaurant. Beach is very small with lots of rocks to miss when walking into the water.

Where do I start? I have been to many Dreams resorts all over the world and I can honestly say the entertainment team at Dreams Sands Cancun was sooo much fun! Luis Miguel, Fabian, Heidi, Fernanda, Pato, Antonio, Jhun and Lalo will always be in my heart. Their personalities and the way they interacted with all the tourist was absolutely... More

I would like to start off by saying Dreams was a fabulous stay! Great staff and the food was awesome, in all of the restaurants and it was even better that we did not have to make any reservations; it was never a wait for any of the restaurants we would walk up and get seated right away. We ate... More

My husband and I had a great stay. The whole staff is friendly and everyone makes sure that you are enjoying your time and are comfortable. We had an ocean front patio room, worth every penny we paid. It was nice to have the option to watch the nightly entertainment from our room. It's kid friendly so we'd definitely like... More
