I don't have a single complaint about this resort. The hotel is beautiful, everybody went above and beyond to be welcoming and make sure we were happy. The food was delicious, service was impeccable, and our room was comfortable and always kept clean. We will definitely be back!

I just returned from my second stay at Dreams and will definitely be back again. The hospitality is truly outstanding. The Entertainment Team kept us busy with horse shoes, water aerobics and volleyball. We were devastated to say our goodbyes to Samara, Yun, Luis, Peluso, Tony, Karla, Enoc and Hilario. They really made the day. Elmer and the rest of...

Great resort! You can just hang out on their beautiful beach and swim in the calm water or you can do any of the activities. We used the gym, played volleyball,played corn hole, did water aerobics, played Jenga, played bingo, and competed in the kayak race. They have live entertainment every evening. The food is AMAZING! The service is great...

Dreams Sands is working at upgrading the look and experience! The food was one of our reasons for the return didn't meet the standards of our last visits! For the price though still a great bargain. Small enough for kids to have some freedom and enjoy! Great family experience. Staff very friendly and service oriented!
