Fun in the sun

The weather was perfect, as always in Cancun. That ultimately made for a great experience as well as the resort having incredible lunch specials each day at 1:00. The resort was very clean and well-kept and the employees were all very cordial... I would recommend this Resort for Shore

Good Value Hotel

This is my 2nd all in with CheapCaribbean.com The Dreams Sands was a very good value on our 5-night stay. It was within walking distance to anything we wanted or needed. Immediately they upgraded us to oceanfront at no extra charge. The room wasn't the newest, but it was clean and served our purposes. The staff and food were excellent. They could have more choices of beer. The only negative is that they keep wanting you to sit through a 90 minute presentation to sell you on their other properties. They asked us over and over to participate when we didn't want to and expressed that clearly..probably 8-10 times. Once you say NO, they should quit asking you. Putting this aside, everything was very nice and we had a very relaxing vacation!

Destination wedding

Our trip was February 15 through February 21. My daughter was getting married at Dreams Sands Cancun with 20 guests attending. For many of us, it was our first trip to Cancun. Because our trip was for a wedding, I think it is only fair that I write the review for the wedding and for our hotel stay. If you have ever considered a destination wedding and had concerns, I highly recommend Dreams Sands. Rubi was our wedding planner. She is AMAZING. For the past year, she worked with my daughter and son-in law. My daughter changed her mind a few times regarding wedding colors, which wedding package she wanted and just about everything else. Never once did Rubi falter. She had a very positive and helpful attitude. My daughter and Rubi had a Pinterest page where they could submit ideas to each other so that everyone was on the same page. Because of a heavy work and school schedule, my daughter was unable to get to some of the important aspects of a wedding; Rubi came through and helped up until the very last minute. The wedding more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. It was absolutely perfect. Rubi was there the whole time, she was always available for us and handled details that we didn’t even know needed to be handled. I was able to relax and enjoy being the mother of the bride, thanks to Rubi’s hard work. I would like to add that Guillermo in the wedding planning department is wonderful and he definitely had a part in making this a very special day! The hotel: As I stated, we had 20 guests attending the wedding and staying at the hotel. We had 3 kids under the age of 18 and they spent a good amount of time in the Core Zone. Never once was I worried about their safety. Yun led the festivities and genuinely enjoyed hanging out with the kids. They had volleyball and ping pong tournaments, crazy games and all sorts of entertainment. Yun’s enthusiasm made the trip a hit for the youngsters. My son thoroughly enjoyed the activities with Yun. We did use the spa and I was underwhelmed. I spent two days in there. Day one was a trial hair and makeup for my daughter, the bride. Her hair and makeup turned out wonderful and we couldn’t wait until the next day. On the day of the wedding, we had the same esthetician, who for a reason that we still do not understand; did a completely different hairstyle and didn’t even part it on the same side When we asked if she could fix it, she said that she couldn’t because she had already teased the hair. I was willing to pay for another hairstyle but that was not an option. On the flip side, Juana did my hair and makeup and I was thrilled with the results. She did a beautiful job. I had an appointment booked for a massage and the spa lost my appointment. I never did get my massage. I would not return to the spa. The beach is fantastic. A beautiful blue sea without waves. It was like a giant pool. The water was clean and clear. It is hard to get a beach chair, it seems like they are taken first thing in the morning. I ended getting a cabana for a reasonable price instead. The pools were very nice. I love that they have a grill set up during the day close to the pool and beach. There was a bubble party one day, fish tacos another. It seems like there was always fun and food at the pool. The service at the bars outside were very slow, they definitely need more people. The wait was much too long for a drink, especially at the swim up bar. I was surprised about the food. I didn’t really want to eat buffet, but very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the buffet. We enjoyed the sushi and ceviche so much. I believe we ate there at least 4 times. Another place I was pleasantly surprised was Olios. The Mexican restaurant was great, although I was disappointed that they didn’t have fundido like the online menu stated, but the flank steak made up for it. I was not very impressed with the food at Waves and Sands. Our waiter was great, but the steak was not.The Japanese restaurant couldn’t accommodate our large group of 11 but the buffet did accommodate an even larger group. They have a cool little nightclub where we danced a few times. It was nice. The music was good. Our room was clean and I was thrilled with it up until our last night when my pillowcase had holes in it. All in all, We enjoyed our stay at Dreams Sands. I think it would be hard to find a better resort for us. The staff was extremely friendly and knew our names. It is a small and friendly hotel. We can’t wait to come again to Dreams Sands Cancun! I also want to add that this was the first time using an online travel agency and I will never use anyone but Cheap Caribbean. The customer service was excellent and our trip was trouble free.

What's to Love

Sparkling champagne and cool towels that take the travel edge off, and fast.

Two beachfront pools (including an infinity pool) and three bubbliscious Jacuzzis.

Perching under a palapa on Playa Viva, a private stretch of sugar-white sand kissed by turquoise.

Luxurious rooms with breath-stealing views of the Caribbean and Isla Mujeres.

Cushy bathrobes and slippers in your room. It'll feel like home.

Explorer's club (kids 3-12) with treasure hunts and sand castle competitions.

Red Cross certified staff supervise the aforementioned club. A relief, right?

The Black Mud Body Wrap and Stem Cells Body Treatment. You'll feel like new.

You can cuddle up on a beach blanket for a movie under the stars.

 

What We'd Change

Dreams Sands Cancun's perfect location offers a beautiful private beach, championship golf courses nearby, legendary shopping and nightlife, plus plenty of great excursions and activities the whole family can enjoy. This one is a no-brainer.
 

Why You Should Go

It's only 25 minutes from the airport - you'll be vacay crushing it in no time.

Upgrade to the Preferred Club, get better rooms, desserts & liquors in the private lounge and more.

For snorkeling and scuba, boat or ferry over to Cozumel.

Perfect your swing at the Playa Mujeres Golf Course - it's a Greg Norman signature green.

Connecting rooms are available, so it's great for families.

Mayan ruins are near and well worth the trek. The cliff-top view from Tulum is crazy epic.

Intro to scuba in the pool, kayaks, ocean volleyball & many more splashy things.

Take Spanish lessons and if you get the urge to shimmy, Caribbean dance lessons.

After you dry off, take in a cocktail or cooking lesson.

Jump on the ocean trampoline, then bounce on over to the pool table.
