Wonderful place

My husband and I vacationed at the resort in May 2018. We stayed 8 days and didn't want to leave when the time came. The resort is so clean, the food is wonderful. I loved not having to make restaurant reservations. The beach & water is beautiful. The staff removed the seaweed every day. There was seaweed in the water however, you could still swim with no problem. I was lucky enough to find some beautiful shells. The most important part of the resort was the staff. Amazing, hard working and so friendly and sincerely wanted to go out of their way to make our stay the best ever. I loved that the resort was ocean front, LOVED our balcony and loved that we could easily walk to any restaurant, entertainment or activity.

BEST ALL INCLUSIVE HOTEL I'VE EVER STAYED AT

Let me begin by saying that I have stayed at many, many top all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean... probably at least 20 of them on different islands, so I have done a lot of comparing. I have to honestly say that this is the very best one I've ever stayed at. Hands down. Let me break things down for you: THE HOTEL ITSELF: It's a huge, beautifully kept and very clean hotel. My Sister-in-law and I arrived and were greeted by a pleasant and welcoming employee who offered us fresh, cold, lemon scented face towels AND a glass of champagne. (What is not to love here?) Check in was a breeze. We had arrived a bit early, but we were able to go have lunch in the buffet restaurant and relax a bit until our room was ready. THE HOTEL STAFF: Every single person who is employed in any capacity at all at this hotel could not have been nicer and more accomodating. Nothing was too much to ask of them. First class all the way, and every single employee deserves kudos. THE BEACH: A beautiful, top notch beach that was a lot larger than I expected with plenty of thatched huts to find shade under. Every day there were several employees out on the beach, raking up the seaweed that would wash up on shore. Again, first class all the way. You never have to wait long for a drink... there are plenty of very pleasant, smiling employees coming around every few minutes to ask if you wanted anything or to take your drink glasses away. Again.... first class all the way! THE RESTAURANTS: First of all, the Buffet was excellent... No matter what your tastes are, they seemed to have something to suit everyone, meat eaters and vegetarians alike. There are about 5 different Specialty Restaurants and everyone of them was excellent. This the first place I've ever stayed that you did NOT need reservations in advance for any of them. There is a sign that if the restaurant is full, you might have a few minutes wait. Very understandable. The food was excellent in every single restaurant, and the presentation was outstanding. A shout out to our waiter Angel in the Bordeaux Restaurant, as well as Gilillermo in the Waves and Sands Restaurant. There is a small food bar off the lobby (Coco Cafe) that is open 24 hours a day. Laura and Candy could not have been more pleasant and accomodating, even though we had a couple of unusual requests for snacks/coffee. We ate in all but one of the restaurants while we were here. Believe me, all the employees in any of these restaurants deserve a nice raise. THE ONLY NEGATIVE thing I can say in the entire time we were at the Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa was about the shower/tub in our room. I am not sure if all the showers/tubs were the same, but it was a bit frustrating. There is a glass panel that goes half the length of the shower; it is attached to the wall closest to the faucet. You could not turn on the faucets unless you were in the shower/tub already because of the glass panel. So as a result, you either got very cold or very hot water and wet hair immediately when the water came out of the shower head. Also, the hot and cold faucets did not turn the way that normal faucets turn on and off; this took us a bit to figure out... while standing there with dripping hair and letting a few four letter words tumble out of our mouths. But that was the ONLY negative about this hotel, so I guess I really shouldn't complain. All in all, I would definitely stay here again. Everything went smoothly; Juan (who cleaned our room every day) was awesome. We booked this trip through Cheap Caribbean; I can guarantee you will love this hotel. Oh yes, and the Amstar Rep, Israel, was amazing. Keep up the good work Dreams!!!!!

Spacious rooms First class all the way!

Okay

The service was great. But the hotel is small. The beach is even smaller. Although it seems like it’s on an inlet so no waves. That was nice so you can actually chill in the water. But lots of seaweed and wasn’t crystal clear like other resorts in Cancun. But we had an awesome time with their employees. They made our experience memorable

What's to Love

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

As of June 2018 you can bring your furry friend along!

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.
