My husband and my nine-year-old daughter and myself stayed here for seven nights and we had a great time we did stay in the preferred section which I really enjoyed because if we ever wanted a snack or just sit quietly have a drink we could go and relax before heading out for dinner or before heading back to the...

Anyway, the first thing about the hotel that you see is... More

Beautiful resort for families. All rooms are ocean view. Not all have a balcony so if you want a balcony make sure you confirm that room type. The World Cafe stays open 24/7. The restaurants for dinner do not require reservations. Good choices too.The rooms are spacious and everything is close to the beach. Swim up bar was large. Drinks... More

My wife and I brought our 2 kids (17 month & 5 year old) to the Dreams Resort. I especially want to thank the entertainment team: Humberto Yun Lalo & Pato because they were incredibly friendly and welcoming. They did a great job with the entertainment. The evening shows were top notch when compared to some of the other resorts... More

Nice hotel, the beach is nice no waves like a pool. Rooms are nice I think all of are ocean view. The food is good and have different options for dinner. The location is good close to restaurants and bars.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time - staff were so friendly! We are very picky eaters so we were initially worried - but the food was no issue! Our favourite restaurant for dinner was the Asian restaurant Himitsu - staff were so attentive and remembered us as we went every night. Room... More

My husband, 11-year old son, and I enjoyed the hospitality of Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa August 9th-14th, 2016. I had not stayed at this property before, but we required a resort close to our favorite dive operator, Always Diving, and Dreams Sands Cancun was within two bus stops of the dive shop. As a travel agent I often... More

Honestly, this was one of the best vacations my son and I have had. The place is warm and family oriented, yet if you are a couple you can definitely find romance at Dream Sands. The staff were warm, friendly and very accommodating. From Abel the head concierge to Manuel and Pablo at World Cafe. Thank you for an enjoyable... More
