My bf and I were at Dreams April 9th to 16th. It was a very nice resort.
The food was okay, nothing to write home about. The Asian resteraunt did have sushi, unlike another review said. It's just on the little table topper by the salt and pepper I beleive. We ate their twice since it was so good. I am though just starting to feel abit better stomach wise. I agree that something is just "not right" with either their food or drinks. I've been to Mexico 6 other times and have never felt so bad for over a week afterwards - or have I ever threw up on a plane before like I did on the way home. But would it stop me from going back? Probably not, I would just take my own glass and take more medicine. We drank mostly the tap beer and not alot of fruity blended drinks so it wasn't the coconut milk.
The beach was closed for the last two days because of the waves so it made it harder to get a spot at the pools. So I would go earlier in the season. But it was nice to have a nice quiet, half full resort. Until the weekend came and we were bombarded with Mexicans and all their children. We actually asked how much it would be to switch to Secrets but it wasn't worth it since they were only there for the weekend.
We did an excursion with Roberto on the beach. Totally safe and was a great morning. We paid 60 each and it was only us on the boat. We got our pictures taken with the resort photographer and totally recommend it. They turned out great!
We bought some silver off the guy by the bar by the buffet and he was willing to deal. I think we paid half of what he first offered. The beach vendors are actually the best deal I found. I guess cause they don't have to pay rent. I wanted to buy one of the hanging hummingbirds in the lobby and they wanted $100! I found them in town at a shop for $28 and they wouldn't budge even if I bought two. If you want the wood painted ornaments, there isn't much if any dealing on the price. But they are beautiful.
The two weddings that we saw take place were beautiful, would recommend getting married there for sure.
Our room was a jacuzzi suite that looked onto the Asian resteraunt and the one pool. We used the jacuzzi every day. And yes, you have to fill it up like a bathtub...........lol. But the jets were nice after a long tiring day of relaxing by the pool. The room was always clean and fridge stocked up. Loved the shower in the bathroom. And the beds! It's the first trip to Mexico where I slept great EVERY night! So comfortable.
All in all, it was a great trip and would go back again. We miss it :(
Oh yeah, the waitress by the adult pool was a great waitress! Her name was Primi or close to. She was so wonderful and quick, always working hard.
