My husband and I stayed here last year and this time we brought our three teen boys. We had to get two rooms to fit us all. The hotel was a bit more upscale last year and has gone down in quality.

This trip was booked as a girlfriends getaway to celebrate the impending wedding of my best friend. There were 10 women and one pre teen girl in total. We had booked individually all requesting ocean front rooms with two double beds. Some with and some without balconies. This is where the nightmare started. You see eight of the women including...

I don't even know where to start. Our family had such a great vacation. We stayed at Dreams Sands August 11-17, myself, my husband and my three children, 17, 16 and 6. The Resort itself was beautiful, with the beach very close and accessible from the hotel. It is a small resort and that was something we loved about it.... More

We did tip the workers for their excellent service. We decided to go two nights to the Mexican restaurant "El Patio". Our waiters for both nights were excellent. For the... More

Service and people there were Great! My sons room was very outdated and bathroom was VERY OLD .. shower head fell off.. We had a stand up stall and the water poured out of the bottom.
