We visited Ddeams Sands Resort and Spa in Cancun with two other couples and had a great vacation. The food at this all inclusive was very good from a wide variety of restaurants including Mexican, Mediterranean, French, American Italian and, of course the buffet, which featured a different theme each night. My personal favorite was Portofino, the Italian restaurant. The...

The property was very well kept, even though dated. Very clean with excellent staff, friendly and very much wanting to please. Restaurants were excellent with exceptional service. Top shelf liquor was not available at some of the bars even though advertised as such, but if you befriended one of the bartenders or beach waiters, they could take care of you.

A great relaxing week at this all-inclusive resort. The restraunts were all very good which took the stress out of our nightly selections. Our favorite was el Patio, where waiter Jose Cahuich, chef Hector Chan, and Captain Angel Bautista made the dinners memorable! Serving on the poolside, Annasarahe provided attentive service with a warm friendly smile. A great daily choice...

We visited the Dreams Sands Resort in Feb. 2017, room 1051. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Special shout out to Luis, Samara, & Yun of the entertainment staff. Our pool bar servers Tina and Gerson were great! Ceaser was also a very friendly bar server on the beach. We liked Tirza at Bordeaux restaurant, and Alfredo (a manager). The...

Nice resort, good food , great drinks and an amazing staff. I was not a fan of the the time share talks they baggered you to go to. A firm not interested was the only way they would stop. The other staff was amazing and so friendly.

The first thing I noticed when I arrived is how close the hotel is to the Ocean just steps away and breathtaking, this hotel is on a Bay which means calmer waters so yes bring your floaty or you can buy one across the street. There are shops right across from the hotel that are very safe but you have...

The Hotel The hotel used to be located where the Hyatt Ziva is now and I LOVED that location. This location has a smaller beach that was always very crowded. If you wanted a chair by the beach, you needed to be there by 9:00 AM. This beach was pretty good but I still feel that the other location was...
