Great place to stay because of the amazing staff. Everyone goes above and beyond what is necessary or expected to help make your stay the best it can be. Every restaurant was very good, some even exceptional.Rooms comfortable. Our first room- 140 was a bit noisy with the nightclub below, so we asked and were promptly relocated to a much...

We stayed at Dreams Sands last week for Spring Break. It was an average resort. We enjoyed how it was family friendly, not a huge resort and everything was not super spread out. It was very easy to walk right out onto the beach. The pools were also great! Check in to the resort was awful! We traveled with another...

Had a great time at dreams sands. I was impressed with the amazing views and how close we were to the beach. The second you enter the lobby you get a fantastic view of the ocean and it continues up in the rooms. The rooms were clean and well kept, if a bit small. We upgraded to a balcony which...

Small room with nice ocean view but no balcony. Beach and pool area were very small and felt closed in with the big hotel building looming in the background. Staff really pushed the vacation club ownership....we had to literally avoid them in the lobby....not very relaxing.

When my husband I decided to visit Cancun, the amount of resorts to check was overwhelming. I finally went with a friends recommendation, and I am so glad I did. I checked tripadvisor almost daily looking at reviews and some of them were terrible, so I spent alot of time second guessing my choice. Let me tell you, this resort...

Can't say enough good things about this all inclusive resort. Staff is phenomenal, friendly and helpful. Food was great, activities were so much fun and lead by enthusiastic people. My husband and I took our 13 and 14 year old kids. We left the resort twice during our stay which was 8 days long. Truly a great place, would definitely...

I just returned from a 7 night stay at Dream Sands, and have nothing but positive things to say. From the time I walked through the doors (and was greeted by someone bringing me a refreshing drink) to the time I left, I was so impressed by the amazing service and amenities of this resort. This was my first time...

This was my 3rd time at this resort and a delight once again. All the reno from previous years seems to be completed and the place is truly spectacular. I traveled with three children and the teens were busy non-stop (I mean NON-STOP...it was great!). My little one was always made to feel welcome at all the activities but he...
