“A Magnificent Dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

I just came back from Dream Valley and have to say, it was a DREAM! Upon arrival you are greeted by a friendly staff and welcome by a refreshing beverage, then toured to a "Dream Valley"', Lush greenery forest, sounds of nature, the river, I had to just stop and take it all in! This is when I decided, phone is not going on!!!
The suites are Beautiful, very cozy sized suites, unique to it's core, and the bathroom is so spacious which it's always a plus for anyone, I think. You have the choice to air conditioning or just open up wooden shutters and let the sounds of the birds and river and wind put you to sleep. The suites offer a cozy tv area to relax, watch tv and/or read and if you must, wi-fi is offer and you can check in on Facebook lol
As for daily activities, you can relax with a drink and appetizers by the 2 pools overlooking the river and magnificent surroundings, You can go to the trails mountain biking, bird watch, see the monkeys hanging around the trees, you can get pampered at the spa, you can go to the conference with high vaulted ceilings with serene decor and relax, read, watch tv or just hang out with your friends as we did, or choose to have them arrange for fun adventurous tours from horseback riding, the Mayan ruins, zip lining, cave canoeing, cave tubing, and so much more.
Lastly, the restaurant food was amazing, we had something different to chose from everyday and it was so delicious we kept asking for the recipe, lol I am not a great cook, but will surely attempt some of their delicious dishes and will miss their fruit platters as the fruit is so tasty and colorful.
Thank you Dream Valley, you truly offer a dream vacation!

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

I took my wife to this newly opened resort for her birthday treat and treat is certainly the word to be used. We ended up in the Bigger cabana (they have a standard one and then the other one we stayed in) which was the size of a tennis court! Seriously there were 5 levels to this room, a terrace with great views to the lazy river, then the entry area complete with sunken jacuzzi, then a lounge level with large TV, massive bedroom with four poster bed and then a bathroom which was in itself the size of most hotel rooms. We were greeted by the jovial Manager Yaima who is from Cuba and Switzerland and who laughs in almost every sentence, quite charming. She had so much to share and really made us feel very welcome, we were the only guests that night and had the dining room to ourselves, a massive vaulted ceiling restaurant. Dinner was a lovely affair cooked by a very jolly chef who came and introduced himself and basically designed our menu with us as we sat down, We did not have to wait long for food which was delicious. Steaks were oversized, neither of us could finish our steaks but it was the tastiest T bone i have had in a long time. They surprised us with a birthday cake for my wife (and all came out singing) nice touch, We sat in the very comfy well designed lounge area but there was some weather related issues preventing the TV cable from working, but Yaima quickly picked out a few movies and we went back to the room to watch them. We thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi, water was piping hot this was such a treat. The room offered fans or a/c and we opted for a night in on our own and closed all the wooden shutters giving a total black out and turned on the a/c. We took breakfast out on the terrace and though I am no big birding fan we sat there listening and trying to identify a huge number of bird calls all around, even heard howler monkeys and the call of a Toucan (but did not see it sadly) Breakfast started with some wonderful typical french style pastries like puff pastry with apple and jam, wonderful. After breakfast we looked around and saw the two pools (yes two not one) side by side which seemed to be just being finished off. With the rain we did not feel like a dip but they looked perfectly fine and shallow enough for kids. There was a spa which according to the staff we spoke to will be opening shortly, not sure what that means in weeks but it seemed pretty finished to us except some furniture. All in all this resort has a great future ahead of it and i hope travellers find it when they are looking for jungle options. I promised my wife it would not be another birthday before heading back to the resort for dinner or to stay. The one final observation is that we only stayed one night but i can imagine if we had stayed a few nights we would probably have spent more time than usual at the resort versus touring around the region because the resort lends itself to that. The small touches, decorative art were all amazing, Only thing i did not like (but its purely personal and no reflection on the resort) was the sheets which seemed like a satin type of mix, i am just a fan of 100% cotton linen on hotel beds. Good job Yaima and her staff, we will be back!

Room Tip: Spend the extra US$ 100 on the upgrade to the luxury cabana it was worth every dollar. The rooms are...
