We just returned from 4 nights in this beautiful resort with a group of close friends. It is an all inclusive resort and, as such, I would not normally expect a high degree of service or outstanding food. I was wrong...this resort's staff members were truly exceptional. From the chambermaids to the water aerobics instructor, to the bartenders, to the wait staff, to the bellmen, every single employee made us feel as though they really cared if we were enjoying ourselves. The food in all the restaurants is excellent and prepared and served with a flair.

The 3 beautiful pools are cleaned every day and the grounds are meticulously mainicured. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. We had an ocean view room and the view was wonderful.

There is a sushi bar on the top floor that is open-air, with a spectacular view, and a great place for cocktails.

All in all, this was a wonderful experience that, hopefully, we will be repeating for a longer stay next year.

My Family and friends stayed here June 15-21 2014. There were a total of 8 adults, 3 young adults (16-19) and 2 kids. My family and I overall loved it and had a great time.
To address a few of the issues I had read on tripadvisor:

We were not bothered at all from the timeshare people. Once you recognized who they were and told them you were not interested at all - they left you alone. They do not wonder the hotel grounds and seemed to only stick to the lobby area.
There are not many lounge chairs, but with that said - we never had an issue getting table/chairs in the shade and we went down daily about 10am.
Food overall was great. We did not enjoy room service for breakfast...but a late evening snack or lunch was great.
The buffet was surprising better than I thought it would be and read about. We loved the Portofino restaurant and went twice. Sushi place was good as well though the selection was slim and not too much of a variety.
Pools & beach were great!! We spend HOURS in both. The infinity pool was a the coolest, but even still very warm for a pool temp.
Drinks were weak, but all you had to ask was for them to make it a double and it was good.

Kids club was overall ok. Our 4 year old son had fun but they really did not seem to do too much with the children, My son liked going because he got to play video games. They called you at 1pm stating your child wanted to have lunch with you which was a lie - when in truth they wanted you to pick up your kid. If you stated you wanted your child to stay for lunch, then they would call you at 3 to pick them up instead of 1. The hours are supposed to be 9am-5pm.
My son had bumped his head....he had a good bump but I never received a call in regards to it and only was told when we picked him up. Overall I do not think the counselors really play with the kids and there was never more than 3-4 kids there which let me to think its was really fun. But again with that said, our son did go and overall have a good time.

Not much of a night life - which I already knew and was ok with. The nightly shows were great and after a long day in the heart, sun and drinking it was nice to be in bed about 11pm or so.
My family and I would come again. our overall experience was pleasant and a good one.

I would bring bug spray. Our whole group got many many bug bites which we got at night in the room while sleeping. I did call down and request them to spray, but not sure that really helped.
Service was great.....anything we needed and requested was always done with a smile.

Spa - we did not use as the prices are horrible and would never pay that even in the states. Our group was so surprised at the cost for spa treatments. That is an area they can improve on and missed the price point by a big margin.

We stayed the second week of June and had a great time! Our family of 5..three boys ages 19, 17 and 13 enjoyed every minute of it.
The rooms were large with one huge king bed and a double, the privacy issue others talked about was not a problem at all. We did need 2 rooms due to the ages of the boys, but the extra space was appreciated. The rooms were clean and beds very comfortable!
I can not say how wonderful the staff is at Dreams! From Salvidore at the lobby bar to Ramon, Saul and Gerardo the waiters in the restaurants we had great service and they made us feel like family! The last night of our trip they actually made a dessert plate and wrote in chocolate to "have a safe trip home." They knew us by name and treated us like royalty!
Julio and Betty work so hard serving drinks at the pools and beach, they were great and always had a smile or joke for us!
The restaurants were all delicious and I think they lost money serving the boys! Our favorite was Sea Side Grill for dinner because you could sit outside and see the pools and ocean. Oceana and El Patio were also delicious! The World Cafe for breakfast was great and we loved the Mexican options for breakfast. Due to the ages of the kids we could not sit and eat in the Italian restaurant. But the manager made arrangements for us to eat in the World Cafe with the Portofino menu! They were so accommodating and happy to let us try the menu!
The Sushi bar was a nightly stop before heading to dinner. One of our boys has a shrimp allergy and they made sure that his order was separate and safe. The view from the sushi bar is awesome and they were very relaxed about younger kids up there in the early evening. The waiters up there... Ricardo, Ismael and Miguel
were great and after two visits knew our drink and sushi order! The Barefoot Grill was great in the afternoon to grab a burger, hotdog or nachos while at the pool if you didn't want table service. Room service was fast and good. My husband and I ordered a pot of coffee for two every morning and by day 2 they knew our order and would wait for our call! The boys ordered room service every night...they liked the flank steak!
The beach was clean and water was warm. If you like planned activities there were plenty! We spent most of our time at the infinity pool overlooking the ocean. The water was warm, unlike other reviews stating how cold it was. We also had no issues with the condo owners or getting chairs by the pool. Some guests do grab a chair for the day but we had no problem finding somewhere to sit whenever we went to the pool.
We did two excursions, Mikes fishing charter and Vallarta Adventures to Las Caletas. Caught two 8 foot sailfish on the fishing charter which was incredible and loved Las Caletas! Snorkeling was great as was the food.
Puerto Vallarta was a 40 dollar taxi ride for 5 from the hotel. Well worth the trip and at no point did we feel unsafe. Worth seeing the board walk and market! The Catholic Church was beautiful as were the sand sculptures on the beach. We heard "Almost Free" so many times at the market! Lots of fun!
The shows were good. We really liked the fire show and the Mexican night by the pool, they even had a mechanical bull!
For sure get a room higher up for a better view. We had a tropical view but still saw the bay on the seventh floor. The jacuzzi was nice on the deck, we used it a few times and enjoyed it!
We really enjoyed Dreams and would return again!

We were there last two night weeks in May, weather prefect, after travelling 11hrs 20mins from Manchester England, the check in service was quick, luggage arrived at our room 5 mins after checking in, we didn't book this hotel, thomsons our travel agents changed it, so a bit disappointed when we didn't got a sea view, hotel wanted an extra £500.00 for a sea view room. Our room was lovely and clean, looked out over the main room but wasn't noisy at all, I would imagine the sea view room were noisier as the entertainment and late bar are on ground floor and roof top. Jacuzzi on balcony is only small, bath in the room takes about 10minutes to full but lovely iit's a deep one, all staff our very friendly, beach bar staff are brilliant , beautiful beach and very clean. Buffet restaurant there is plenty to choose from never had a bad meal, speciality there,s no need to book which is good. There is a coffee shop near to the lifts and shop, where you can get sandwiches, cakes etc beautiful. Room service for meals are lovely and don't take long to arrive , mini bar in room is refilled every day, they do a turn down bed service which is between 5pm and 9pm ( to early ) so put your do not disturb sign on your door. Departure tax when leaving is £45.00 each GBP or 70 US Dollars each . If your going have a great time

We went to this dreams resort with a wedding party and to celebrate our anniversary! It far exceeded any expectations that we had going in! The resort was clean, the food great, the staff super friendly and fun to hang out with all week! We had our favorites for sure as far as the staff! Julio was the most wonderful server, always checking on us and making sure we had everything we needed. He had off one day the entire week we were there and it was quite a noticeable difference when he was not there, which is a true sign of just how awesome he is! Efren, the bartender taught a cocktail class and was very kind and friendly every time we saw him. The entertainment staff was excellent! EZ, Ferny and Lukas had us laughing, kept us busy with all the planned activities that we chose to do and really took the time to get to know us as individuals! We definitely did not feel like just another customer or a number, but more like family! We would stay again in a heartbeat!

I visited Dreams with 13 other people of varying ages and everyone of us had an amazing time! The pool space was wonderful; lots of room and it was not a struggle to find an area for a large group to set up camp with pool chairs by the pool. The beach was amazing, warm water, nice sand and a beach volleyball court! The food was better than any other all inclusive resort I have stayed at. The Italian restaurant, the Oceana restaurant and the Grill restaurant were all very good for dinner and the 24 hour room service is a great perk that allowed us to really take advantage of "all inclusive" living (maybe a little too much.) :) The Sushi bar on the 9th floor served great drinks and was a fun place to hang out in the evenings. The Dreams entertainment team works hard to keep guests of all ages entertained from movie trivia in the pool to coconut tosses to karaoke, our entire group was entertained. The evening shows were good, but I would suggest skipping the Comedy show, unless you are really into mimes! While the food, scenery, drinks and entertainment was all solid, the most impressive asset of the resort is the staff! EVERY staff member we came in contact with offered us great service and we were sad to have to leave them.The entertainment crew, Lukas, Ferny Ezequiel and Mitch were all very friendly. They kept us entertained and made us feel welcome at all times. The provided the resort with energy and encouraged everyone to have FUN! We made friends with several of the bartenders who treated us very well. Ricardo in the Gohan provided us great service and made sure the NBA game was on when we stepped into the bar. Efron, Alfredo and Jerry at the poolside bar were lots of fun and made our stay pleasant. The servers at the poolside bar (Specifically Betty, Julio and Ismael) work there butts off to make sure drink glasses were not empty. Our room bar attendant Ricardo was also very pleasant and made sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this resort as we had a great time!

Our entire group of 14 loved this resort. I have been to 2 other all inclusive resorts and this one had the most friendly staff. We did not run into one crabby staff member including entertainers, waitresses, bartenders, maids, painters, etc. The food was also the best I have had at any all inclusive resort. If we ran into any problems everyone was glad to help. The beach is very pretty here as well. We enjoyed the different pools and the all day activities. There was an activity every hour that you could participate in. The sushi bar on the 9th floor which views the entire resort was one of our favorites. The entertainment crew Lukas, Ferny, Ezequiel, and Mitch were all very friendly and made our stay an enjoyable experience. Ricardo at the Gohan sushi bar was also great. The poolside cocktail service was wonderful as well. Betty, Julio, Efren, Alfredo, Jerry, and Ismael were always looking to refill your drinks. This staff was super friendly and enjoyable. Our room bar attendant Ricardo was also very pleasant. He let us know that we could contact him if anything was needed. At one point during our trip we had an issue with our phone and the staff was there right away to fix the problem. I highly recommend this resort to any and all!
