We stayed here for a week over Easter break. The driver was great and very accomodating to our arrivals. Was about half hour drive from the airport. Liked how we were able to arrange transportation through the hotel. Beautiful hotel and location. Was very small and private and relaxing. The food was amazing. Beautiful beach (some areas a bit rocky). Felt secluded and romantic. Perfect for a quiet romantic weekend away! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return! The only thing was I wished you could get alcoholic drinks included with the culinary experince!

Room Tip: we stayed in the bungalow rooms.. very cool.. loved how they were right on the beach and very privat...

We spent 5 nights at this location and didn't want to leave. From the moment we pulled up to the hotel, the scenery was breathtaking and the hotel grounds were very well maintained. Because this is a smaller hotel (25 rooms), you truly get to know the staff and other guests well. Jacqueline, the concierge was on top of anything we needed/requested and met us upon arrival to tour us around. The restaurant and bar staff were amazingly warm, friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of.
We stayed in a Bungalow Suite, which was far enough away from the noise of the beach/pool, but close enough for us to run into the water when we wanted to.
The landscaping was well maintained, the grounds were in good shape, the pool was refreshing and plenty big enough for the amount of rooms there.
We ate almost every meal at the restaurant, on the beach, at the pool or in our room - nothing disappointed and if we wanted something that wasn't on the menu - it was never a problem to make it for us. That is service and that made us very happy.
My only gripe was the lack of wifi (none in the rooms) and the reception that we did have was spotty and not consistent. I am totally fine with not having a TV in the room (who has time to watch it anyway?), but not being connected via wifi was a bit rough, since we did need to work remotely a few hours each day.
Overall, we will return.
I am excited to get back there soon!

Room Tip: The bungalow suites are wonderful. We slept with the doors open and falling asleep to the ocean/wav...

Just returned from a week at Le Reve. We really enjoy small hotels and this did not disappoint. The room was comfortable and quite large. We had a garden view room but we could still see the ocean. The beach was beautiful and we never had trouble finding a chair. It was a bit difficult going in the water as there are a lot of rocks but the shoes the hotel provide definitely help and the pool is lovely. It is a bit far removed from downtown Playa Del Carmen but the food at the resort was excellent so we did not feel like we were missing out on going into town. Wi-Fi was definitely spotty. It would have been nice to have that in the room; as of now, you can really only get online in the lobby and restaurant. My only other complaint was that there is not a jacuzzi. Would have been nice to be able to sit in a hot-tub and watch the sunset. The service was excellent and they really do try to make you feel at home. I would definitely recommend Le Reve for a quiet, relaxing vacation.

We were looking for a quiet get-away to rest and relax. We also needed a place that was easy to get to. Le Reve fit the bill perfectly. This hotel is a wonderful little oasis tucked between large all inclusive resorts. With only 25 rooms, Le Reve feels extremely intimate. And it's just 45 minutes south of Cancun. The staff is super friendly and the property is clean and well kept. We had the Horizon Ocean View room overlooking the pool with a view of the sea between the palm trees. There was never a problem finding a lounge chair on the beach or by the pool (and they were super comfortable). We ate at the hotel most days and the food was YUMMY! The drinks were good too (although they were a bit pricey). And the evening turn down service with the fresh baked pastries was such a nice treat every night! We went into Playa a few times and found the crowds to be overwhelming. Coming back to the quiet of Le Reve was perfect. If you are looking for peaceful vacation this is the place!

We traveled to Le Reve in March 2013. It was fantastic. We have a short list of places that we want to return to, but Le Reve has made it to the top. We were looking for a quiet place to recoup, rest and relax. This was the place. There was never a problem getting a lounge chair at the pool or on the beach. The poolside bar service was amazing, Antonia was wonderful. They make a serious Coco Loco, served in a coconut (delicious). The service all around was impeccable. The restaurant was fantastic. We loved the Duck Salbutes, Tres Leches, Chilaquiles, and Guac. Ismael was our waiter most of the week and he was awesome.

We stayed in a bungalow which had a small pool off the porch and thatched roof. Even with the doors shut we could hear the ocean. It had an incredibly comfortable king bed. My husband got a massage on the beach and he found it very good. The services are offered overlooking the ocean, but it does not seem to be a predominate part of the business.

If you are looking for a secluded getaway to unplug and rest all while enjoying a beautiful country this is totally the place for you!

Nice hotel with friendly staff and nice beach, rooms are clean and pretty and the ground floor garden was a nice treat.

Pool was clean and refreshing and the beds and hammocks on the beach were comfortable.

The rooms are made a second time in the evening and nice little fresh dessert is left, each day different. Very nice detail.

Though this is definitely a very decent hotel, there are a few important minor points:
1- as described in other comments there are sharp stones in the sea in front of the hotel so nearly impossible to go in for a swim.
2- for some mysterious reason there was 15% service charge on top of the room rate. We stayed in 4 different hotels in the area and this was the only one to have this. It seems a bit sneaky and I believe it would be more honest to just include this in the room rate...
3- we both got unwell after eating pasta for dinner at the hotel restaurant one night
4- the hotel is very secluded, there are no restaurants or shops where you can get to by foot
5- after asking for recommendation at reception for a nice restaurant in the area we can walk to by foot over the beach, we were referred to a hotel restaurant 6km from our hotel...
6- the rooms don't have wifi. This is annoying as it can rain some afternoons and it is not optimal for preparing trips. There is wifi in the restaurant, pool area but this is so slow that I even gave up loading a normal web page...
7- bed was only queen size

In conclusion, very decent hotel but could do with a bit mod make-over. It is quite annoying that you are tied to the hotel once you're there because there are no restaurants, shops in the area.

My husband and I were looking for a romantic and quiet get away and that is exactly what we found at Le Reve. The hotel blends in so well with nature with its green garden and its rustic design with straw roof and wooden beams. The hotel is right on the beach and we started every morning in the hammock underneath a palm tree, followed by a wonderful breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice. The restaurant opens up to the ocean and it feels like you are eating outside. Since the temperature is so pleasant that is exactly what we wanted. In fact, the whole hotel feels very open, allowing the sun and ocean breeze to follow you wherever you go. We stayed in one of the bungalows. It had a private little pool and a small deck, where we spent several evenings listening to the ocean. The king size bed was so comfortable and everything was nice and clean. The service was amazing and you can tell the staff put a lot of thought into the little details. We were welcomed with a drink and we would find little treats on our bed every day. I liked how private the hotel felt. I never really noticed the other guests, even though it was full most of the time we were there. Another benefit of going to a small boutique hotel I suppose. This hotel is perfect if you want an intimate and romantic stay with your partner, or a relaxing weekend with your best friends. If you are looking for party and action, this is not the spot for you.
