Our family of 4 stayed at the Dreams Sands from March 19-24. Check in was quick and efficient. We were immediately directed to a VIP representative where we were asked to attend a time share presentation the following morning at breakfast- of course they never call it that. We were not interested in upgrades or the extras that come with...

More to come...we are still here, but on my way to front desk for yet another service call for our second room with a leaking roof. Thought we did our homework before choosing Dreams Sands....wrong. Will do a complete review when we get home. In a nut shell, pick somewhere else.

Amazing service, the staff was always on top of our needs, amenities were great, plenty of food choices, great restaurants to choose from. The only complaint I have it's the pushy sales people waiting for you by the elevators, to get you to buy the resort packages.

Had a great time. The staff was excellent and very helpful. Gave us quite a few great tips on places to go and ways to get around the area and places to shop and not get taken advantage of. If you are looking for a place without children or college kids then you might want to consider another resort.

Everyone at dreams sands was friendly, helpful and caring! The hotel and beach are beautiful and superbly maintained! The food and drinks were scrumptious and filling! We had the best time and felt relaxed and safe!

This is an all inclusive resort, I stayed with my family April 19- April 22, 2017. The resort is very clean and lots of fun activities for the family. The food was good but the drinks were weak, still had a great time. The resort is overlooking the ocean, we had great ocean views.

Stayed at Dreams Cancun April 19-26th. We were married on the property last April and wanted to return. Enjoyed this visit as much as always. Several staff remembered us and all the staff treated us great. Will return again next year.

Dreams Sands Cancun is a smaller resort than we've stayed at in the past in Mexico, but overall very enjoyable with lots to do and plenty of places to relax. The view is amazing. We were sad to leave on the last day. We stayed in one of the Preferred Club rooms which has access to the Preferred Lounge. We...

We were at the Dreams Cancun Resort April 17th-23rd and had the best time! I cannot say enough about how wonderful the staff was the minute we entered the resort. We truly did not meet one negative or cranky staff person during our stay! Abraham treated us like family whenever we had lunch at Olio or dinner at Himitsu Sushi,...

The staff is very nice. My kids had a blast. They love all of the activities on the beach. Food was good and the drinks were great. I would suggest getting a cabana. They are only $35 dollars very comfy.
