Waves and Sands restaurant was the best there. If you go, ask for Luis to be your server. He is amazing!! Hands down the best service I have had in years. In America and Cancun. Chef Jose Chan visited our table and made sure everything was just perfect for us.

Trip Advisor usually has been right on for me. This time it was off the mark. I was expecting a 4+ star facility but Dreams Sands is 3 stars at best. The word "Resort" is a definite stretch for Dreams Sands Cancun. This is nothing more than an old hotel on the beach. Our room was tiny and in need...

We were impressed from the moment we arrived. One example was the service and kindness of every employee. Michaela, for instance, was enthusiastic, genuine, knowledgeable, kind, and had a great sense of humor. Everything, everywhere, was immaculate and spotless, The view was breathtaking. There were places that were shaded, but still on the beach for my husband, who has to...

The food, entertainment, beach and service was great! Everyone that works there is happy, friendly and eager to do a good job. The rooms need a little TLC. Some of our group had nice rooms, others the room and bathroom needed updating. We had a fun time, and would go again!

My wife and I chose Dreams Sands Cancun for our 20th wedding anniversary. We stayed here 5 nights in a room looking out onto the ocean. It was really comfortable and even though the hotel is older I love it's character. But what made this hotel stand out in my mind most is how nice it smells when you enter,...
