Dec 07 2018
This was our 5th stay at a Dreams resort (4th location). We are repeat customers because we feel Dreams Resorts are a step above most All Inclusive resorts. This location did not live up to our expectations. The resort is very small with a small beach on a bit of a lagoon. You look out at other resorts. No real water sports. You can not take a walk on the beach for more than a few minutes due to rocky shoreline. The food was fair at best. Restaurants often closed, slow service, incorrect orders. Buffet small and at times, unappetizing looking. There is a little town with shops and restaurants. Once you've done it for a half hour your done. Staff is friendly but less outgoing than our past experiences. Do NOT get a room on the 2nd loor (lobby level). We were two rooms from the lobby our first night.They had a live band in the lobby that might as weel have been playing in our room. Also, the theater was down the hall so there were loud people walking by to and from the show. They did move us after we complained.

2nd time at this resort

Nov 28 2018
This was our 2nd time at this resort and it was great! We like it since it's a smaller resort and fun with kids with a lot to do around there. Also Apple Vacations did a great job setting up our trips to Xe-hal and and a snorkeling trip. I also can't say enough about the Scuba Shop Pro Dive on the resort. My daughter did her first open water dive. They did an amazing job with her and really enjoyed it. We're planning a return trip down in February! Apple Vacation does a great job!

The music entertainment every night until 1 am was so loud in our room that you couldn’t sleep, and the beach was a small marked off area that only got waist deep. The service at the sushi restaurant was awful, we waited 30 minutes after we were seated to get our drinks then another hour to get our food. We have been going to different resorts in Mexico for 20 years, will not be returning here

1 week stay
PARTH P.
Nov 13 2018
We stayed for a week. The hotel had excellent food , beverages, pool areas, kids club and nightly entertainment. But our room was in poor condition. We arrived to a room with no lamps or lights in and some mold smell. The maintenance guy brought us small lamps. They switched rooms after 1/2 the stay. The 2nd rooms had lights / lamps and no mold smell but the door to the balcony wouldn’t close, so they room was not cooling at its best. Overall, both the rooms were in need of maintainance. Housekeeping staff did a fair good job at cleaning the room. We just wiised the rooms were in better and well maintained state.

Service is Impeccable but the hotel needs some updating
COREY W.
Nov 07 2018
If you are going for Service, there is no where like this resort. However, there is some updating that needs to happen and the wetness in the rooms needs to be addressed. The waitstaff, check in staff, Kids club staff, pretty much everyone that works at this resort is AWESOME! You are treated like royalty and everyone always remembers us when we return here. This was our 4th time staying at Dreams Puerto Aventuras and it was relaxing, had great food and drinks, and was a good time.

Great time but huge issue with lack of hot water. As in, none, at times. Water shut off in shower in middle. Once, no big deal. More than 1/2 the stay is a problem

Don’t let the bad reviews sway you
WILLIAM H.
Nov 04 2018
We seen a lot of bad reviews on this resort. I don’t know where they stayed but was not anywhere near our experience. We went for our anniversary. Honestly one of the nicest staffs I’ve ever encountered. Ever person we met went above and beyond any reasonable expectations we could have had. The concierges where helpful with all our questions. The entertainment staff was excellent. The dolphin discovery was a great experience, and very informative with information about the animals. We ate at five of the restaurants during our stay as well as the preferred lounge. The food was very good with beautiful presentation. The beach was nice, there was some seaweed but they cleaned it every morning. The hotel is not brand new but well kept and looks that they are improving things, and updating. There was plenty to do, and we left feeling like there was more we could have done had we had the time.

Great Vacation Without Breaking the Bank!
Andrea P, Rogers, Arkansas
Thu Dec 13 16:38:13 EST 2018
We had a great time at this resort. This is a family oriented resort and my husband and I normally stay at adults only resorts because we do not have kids. While many of the activities were geared towards kids, we did not feel overwhelmed by the kids prescence and there was still plenty for adults to enjoy. We had excellent service at pretty much every location within the resort. While the food was not the best I have ever had it was all very good. The e-team made the entire stay worth it. Whether leading games for kids or evening shows they were always entertaining and had high energy. The dolphin area was very cool. My husband and I did not book any time to swim with the dolphins or manatees but they could still be viewed by guests. Every day a time was set when activities were going on and guests could watch. We even went out to watch at other times and you might catch the dolphins working one on one with the trainers. It was a very fun addition to the resort. Special shout outs to Giovannni and Eric on the e-team. Super entertaining to watch, extremely friendly and always greeted us by name. They were very active in trying to get you to participate but respectful if you declined. Fernando and Alberto at Desires Lounge were awesome. They learned our drink preferences and would start pouring before we even sat down. Fernando always greeted us by name and he was very nice and fun to talk to. Luis and Pablo at the main pool bar also took great care of us.They also knew our names and preferences, never left a glass empty. Our UVC concierge Brenda was also very helpful and informative. Once again we got trapped into a longer than necessary “member update” but that is more of a UVC problem. No fault to Brenda. That is a completely different rant. I would rate the quality of the resort and food a 3 but I give it an overall rating of 4 for the service, e-team and the dolphinarium.

Wonderful getaway vacation!

Small resort, small beachfront full of seaweed. Most restaurants closed during our stay. Drinks were watered down, could not control thermostat. Staff was rude, housekeeping did not clean room until after 3pm and turn down happened at 5???? Mexican restaurant was horrible, the rest were eh... Italian restaurant was good. We payed for an upgraded ocean view room and could not see ocean, room was old and needed many repairs. I have been to secrets and loved it but dreams...not so much. Paid a lot of money for a not so good vacation. Will not visit again.

A lot of the reviews I read prior to our trip complained about the seaweed. The resort removes as much as possible daily, but it is part of the ecosystem that supports the sea turtles. We didn't think it was that bothersome and my son used it for landscaping around his sand castles.

Excellent stay!

We had a great time here, our kids loved the explorers club and the hotel itself is great. Would highly recommend! The entertainment staff were a blast! Location is right in Puerto Aventuras, so going to town or the marina is very easy. This is our second time staying here and we loved it both times.
