We arrived just over a week ago. Had a few hiccups at the beginning of the trip with the room but management were quick to correct this to make sure we were having a great vacation. Love the beach pools and cleanliness of the resort itself. Food is amazing, some restaurants we prefer more than others but that is purely...

After 21+ trips to Cancun, always praised it, I will never return after this trip. Dangerous hotel with water pouring in lobby, pouring above elevator, served alcohol to my 15 year old daughter when she asked for a virgin pina colada (glad I tasted it), rude staff who ignored me completely until I got a manager. At which case I...

For those who left negative remarks, I have to say, if Dreams Sands Cancun did not meet your expectations, nothing will. My wife and I arrived here yesterday-our sixth trip to Cancun and first time at Dreams- and we have been basking in the warmth of staff hospitality and the beaches. Dreams attention to details and guests comfort is truly...

This was our third stay at a Dreams and thought this one really had the best food. We liked everything, the staff, pools, ocean was calm and no seaweed or rock. Armando, the pool bartender was great. Good location, we walked to shopping areas. The only issue was we had to ask several times to get a cot in our...

Restaurants- There are a few different restaurants on site and we we're not impressed with any of them. They try to americanize their restaurants to appeal to Americans but they fail miserably. The sushi bar was gross. The restaurant by the water for lunch wishes that they could have a Hardees logo stamped on the sign. The asian restaurant did...

Just returned home from Cancun and wanted to share what a fabulous time we had! The resort is stunning. Great beach and pools. Room was spacious and clean. The food was fabulous. I have many food allergies and they really worked hard with me to ensure that I was taken care of. Mary Lenhart was an amazing Yoga instructor and...

This all-inclusive hotel has a good location with a great relaxed beach, and if you are traveling with kids, it has activities for them most of the day meanwhile you can enjoy either the pool / beach activities or just enjoying a drink tanning yourself !

No need to search any more. This is the hotel you are looking for if you want to rest and relax during your vacation. Only observation is, look to prepare better when receiving large groups, some of us could not find table for lunch after check in. The "barefoot lounge" is inadequate. Thanks for your efforts.

My best friend and I stayed at Dreams Sands from March 18-25 and it was amazing. The hotel itself is on a very nice beach and has a pool and hot tub.

Everything was just ok, nothing was outstanding from the food, rooms, activities or even drinks. Pros: staff are really friendly. Chilled atmosphere: Cons: the rooms are really old, the bathroom has problems (shower) first day the water was brown and then the water wouldn't drain. It was horrible. I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here.
