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. The hotel room was very nicely decorated and cleaned well everyday, thank you to our maid Patricia (we were in room 505). The location was great, you could...

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.

Waves and Sands restaurant was the best there. If you go, ask for Luis to be your server. He is amazing!! Hands down the best service I have had in years. In America and Cancun. Chef Jose Chan visited our table and made sure everything was just perfect for us.

Trip Advisor usually has been right on for me. This time it was off the mark. I was expecting a 4+ star facility but Dreams Sands is 3 stars at best. The word "Resort" is a definite stretch for Dreams Sands Cancun. This is nothing more than an old hotel on the beach. Our room was tiny and in need...

We were impressed from the moment we arrived. One example was the service and kindness of every employee. Michaela, for instance, was enthusiastic, genuine, knowledgeable, kind, and had a great sense of humor. Everything, everywhere, was immaculate and spotless, The view was breathtaking. There were places that were shaded, but still on the beach for my husband, who has to...
