Stayed at Dreams Sands from July 9th thru July 16th. Our stay was great, food was great and service was great! Waves and Sands restaurant was great, especially our waiter Jose Cahuich. Our pool side waiter Jorge was always there when we needed a drink. We can't wait to go back!

We wanted to give a special shout out to poolside waiter Abel Hernandez. We found him on our first day at the pool and he was with us the rest of the week. He was extremely friendly, attentive, and quick. Overall the service was GREAT but he definitely made our days at the pool a blast!

I visited Dreams from July 3-17, 2016. I have mixed feelings about the resort. First, the facilities and staff are excellent. The rooms are spacious, and the staff could not be better. The shows, both at night and around the pool, were good, and I encourage all to watch them. The beach was nice, but found it to be a... More

I stayed 7 nights in the middle of July with 3 other people. Everything met and exceeded my expectations. Not a single thing was neglected, from the constant resort upgrades to the beach up keep. The workers were constantly going out of their way to make sure the resort was as nice as possible. The drinks and food were awesome,... More

This hotel has the most amazing beach! My family met here from LV and Chicago to celebrate my sister's 50th wedding anniversary. There was a total of 11 people in our party. On our first day, we had a bad experience in the Mexican restaurant. We wanted to sit together and the manager (Lucio) refused to put a couple of... More

I have just come back from a 10 day holiday here with my boyfriend. The hotel is stunning on the white sandy beach with 2 beautiful pools. The food was great in every restaurant except for I wasn't keen on the Mexican restaurant ironically but the French was fantastic! The service blew us away with staff remembering our names personally... More

My husband and I just spent a week here. Initially, we visited the resort last year as a very good friend, Mateo Sulub works there. He gave us a tour and we decided to spend a week there this year and had the BEST time. My husband loves to swim in the Ocean and he could swim with no worries... More

We brought our 2 kids here for a quick vacation. We had a blast. The food was good and there was always something the kids would eat. Drinks were tasty as well. The kids loved going to the coffee shop and getting ice cream. We rent jet skis and it was well worth the money. The beach was beautiful and... More
