After reading the mixed reviews we decided to book our family trip for the beginning of October 2017. Let me say I was pleasantly surprised. When we arrived our check in was quick and easy. We had booked two rooms, one for my husband and I and one for our daughters. The front desk without having to ask gave us a joining room. We had a Partial Ocean View with Balcony and they had a Partial Ocean View with no balcony on 2nd floor. Yes there were Palm trees, but you were still able to see the beach and Ocean. Gorgeous!! The room was clean, spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. The fridge was stocked with beer, water, and soda. Our room had just a show, but our other room had a bath tub and there was this weird glass thing that made it hard to turn the shower on with out getting wet..lol Yes this resort and beach are on the small side, but that is what I prefer. The water was gorgeous and they had a Water Trampoline. Now it is hard to get on,but it was SOOOO much fun. When you are on the beach they have waiter/waitresses that start at 11am. Let me tell you they stay on top of things. Our first day we met Oscar and pretty much followed him to what ever section he was serving in that day. He definitely made our time at the beach even better. He would crack jokes with us and always made sure our drinks were full. Now the rest of the staff was great too. From those in the restaurants and the Pool Bars. The Lobby bartenders were a little stand offish, but we weren't at that bar very much. There was a bartender at the Clulb on the resort, I can't remember her name, but she was also AMAZING. Overall the staff here is GREAT. Food..where to begin. The food was great. Honestly for a buffet they had some good food. Of course there were some things I didn't care for, but what buffet do you go to that you like every item. It didn't matter if it was breakfast, Lunch, or dinner there was always good food on the buffet. We only at lunch at the buffet one day otherwise there were food areas by the pool that had some really good food, so that is normally where we ate. Dinner we did do the buffet a couple times, but we also ate at Olio and Wave & Sands. Now there were reviews that said the portions were small. Yes slightly, but if you do the appetizer, soup, and main course it is plenty. I was stuffed. The only negative I can say is that the VIP Services people were pushy. I know its their job, but they a couple days the same one literally approached me more than once. You just have to firmly say you are not interested. Now they will try to persuade, but normally I just kept walking. The other negative was the lobby elevators. One was broken so it would take a while for an elevator. It really wasn't that big of a deal since we were on the 2nd floor. We normally just took the stair. Which we needed to so we could burn off some of the food..lol Really the Pros of this resort strongly out weigh the couple of cons. I guess if you are used to huge lavish resorts you probably would not like it. On the other had our whole group thought the Dreams Sands Cancun resort over all was amazing. Again their employees, especially Oscar really made our stay memorable. We will definitely go back again.

Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh towels, scented with oils, and champagne. After a long trip, this was refreshing. Front desk was very courteous and informative. Our room was clean, and spacious wth a view. There are five different dining options daily and multiple outlets for drinks. I would like to give a special shout to Armando Vega. We upgraded, for 40$ per day (I highly recommend it) and gained access to the 8th floor premium club. Armando was fantastic and his hospitality and work ethic were above and beyond. He made our trip that much more special. I hope management knows what a great employee they have on staff.

Amazing holiday resort

We booked this trip for our 25th anniversary. The hotel and its location are excellent. On arrival they did offer an upgrade but we declined. Our allocated room was not what we had booked ie with a balcony but this was rectified immediately. The room we got was lovely light bright airy and lovely view. Huge bed lovely view all the amenities you would need. Without doubt the number one asset of the Dream Sands is its staff. Each and everyone of them we came into contact with was exceptional. We would like to give a special mention to Ricardo and Armando at the bar. Laura and Maryjo in the lobby bar. All the staff of the Waves and Sand Restaurant. The entertainment team do a great job, Luis is a big asset to the hotel. We don't normally participate in activities on holiday but the team made it easy. The restaurants are good the Asian Himitsu was our favourite.

First time at this resort for an all girls trip. This resort is extremely small compared to the ones i am used to but the beach is absolutely beautiful and clean one of the best hands down in Mexico. We had an ocean view room and OMG it was breath taking never had such an amazing view. The food was pretty good not great but good. The seviche and sushi restaurant right on the beach was incredible mouth watering. Resort is very close to the city party life where all the clubs are at so went there two nights cab right was short and cheap. Entertainment at the resort was good. Staff very friendly. Room service food was really good. Hotel is dead and quiet really early. All in all a great time and would definitely recommend and visit again.
