We, as a family of five (grandparents, parents, and a baby), all thoroughly enjoyed our hotel and holiday in Cancun. The transfer from the airport to the hotel only takes about 20 minutes, and it is on the main boulevard close the shops, restaurants, and clubs to suit everyone. We had a room with a balcony which we enjoyed and...

We are just leaving this wonderful resort. We had 20 people in our group and everyone had a great time. From the food to the entertainment to the beach, it was great. Our rooms were always clean and fridge was always stocked! Very close to shopping and the ferry. We will come back! Thank you Dreams Sands Cancun!

This hotel is located right downtown. During our stay, we walked to a mall across the street, an outdoor flea market and to the Monkey...

We stayed at this resort in early Feb this year. The service from staff was amazing and made our trip very enjoyable. Abraham Vribe in the Asian restaurant, Jose Cavich in the Mexican and Christian in the French made dining a fun and enjoyable evening. Benjamin and Cesar on the beach and beach bar kept our drinks full, and Tina...

“Just know that the housekeepers are doing a great job! They come in your room in the morning and then at some point later in the day come in to stock your refrigerator with beverages and then will come in around 5 to 7pm to make your rooom nice again with music...I felt like I could really trust them..nothing was missing..just left a tip everyday for a few dollars...bring dollars to tip waitress waiters too. Oh check in wAs after 12pm and same for check out. They bell guys are greT..help you with your luggage at the front.”
