Beautiful resort. Rooms were very nice. Staff was friendly. Entertainment staff were funny and friendly. Only negative would be for more chairs in the pool area. People would hold chairs from early in the morning and never be in them, so sometimes it was hard to have a place to set all of your things or to sit. Other than...

A hotel worker named Roberto immediately came up to us and questioned us...

Bar service was usually fast, though the quality of mixed drinks varied greatly. Omar in the lobby bar was by far the most professional, and made the same high-quality cocktails every time. Can't say...

We just got back from Dreams Sands and really liked it! Some comments: - we are actually Unlimited Vacation Club members but booked through booking.com since we were specific on what room and days we wanted and it wasn't available through UVC - we ended up upgrading to preferred club for 5 out of 6 days which was beneficial because...

We've been to other Dreams resorts and Dreams Sands is this definitely ranks at the low end of the group. 1)The first room we were given was right above the nightclub, the noise was unbearable, so we ask to be moved, and was accommodated something slightly better the next day. 2)The $200 resort credit included in the package is a...
