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

Tina on the beach and Monica Mojica were terrific hostesses. The beach was fabulous and the tourism spots so close by. Loved it. The food was terrific inside the restaurants. Take the time to visit each one. Find the restrooms early, so you don't have to scramble for them throughout the day as you lounge by the pool or on... More

*** For First Timers *** When you land in the airport and have retrieved your luggage, go STRAIGHT outside and avoid the hungry Salespeople at the exit area of the airport. They are there for the "Pitch Breakfast" for becoming a member of the various hotels. As for the hotel. The time there was absolutely enjoyable. The view of the... More

Best thing about resort--the beach! Beautiful calm waters! Rooms were nice and very clean. We paid for VIP Club level service for premium alcohol and private beach area--not necessary! Premium alcohol was not provided at beach-VIP service not as good as regular service--the VIP attendant actually ignored a request made-service outside not as good as service inside the resort. Overall... More
