This was an amazing trip. The resort is absolutely beautiful, staff is incredible, food terrific. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful time. Make sure you have a balcony room - it is worth the extra money.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was above our expectations. A variety of restaurants. The night life was filled with live shows and entertainment. Literally 30 feet to the water. The sea was usually calm. Couple and family orientated. Great location. Too many sales pitches throuhout our stay.

This was my third stay in a Dreams hotel (previously twice in Huatulco) and found quite a few differences: - Check in: I paid an Ocean View room in Preferred Club so we checked in at the 8th floor Lounge.
