This was our first trip to Cancun. We chose this hotel because it was listed as a family resort. The staff are very friendly and work hard. I found all the restaurants excellent. The buffet for breakfast was fantastic! We paid extra for the preferred club. We were given $400 US, coupons to be applied to massages. We never did...

I have only positive things to say about our recent trip to Dreams Cancun. I was most struck by the natural beauty of the resort. Palm trees everywhere, literally stepping down a path out the door and having your toes in the gorgeous, icing sugar sand with the beautiful blue/green Caribeean sea as your backdrop. There was not one spot...

Our trip was amazing from the entry to view of ocean, grounds, staff, and food. We have stayed at many resorts in MEXICO and BAHAMAS this by far is my favorite. We definately plan on making another visit!

My husband and I went to Dreams Cancun for the first time February 2017. We arrived on Super Bowl Sunday. When the game was getting close to kick off time and the resort was trying to sell tables from $300 to $600 to watch the game. We thought this was weird since this was an all inclusive resort. As we...
