TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Nice hotel with a lot of room for improvement
CalifLove1, Emeryville, California
Mon Dec 11 19:07:52 EST 2017
First off, the hotel looks nice. Grounds are well kept etc. Needs more jacuzzi tubs. There is just one public hot tub that is really small compared to amount of rooms at property. Private tubs are small and sort of crappy. Tubs in honey moon suites are the same if not better but still pretty small (not deep) Water stinks all over but maybe that is an infrastructure thing. We had to have our towels removed several times throughout the day to avoid stink. We received great service and attentiveness from Armando Vega and Mauricio Barradas in preferred club lounge area. Hotel staff is kind and willing to help where they can. I will say that the team dealing with presentations is pretty lame. You pay all this money only to be guilted into attending a presentation for 1.5 hrs over a lunch.... Was not a fan of that at all. We will complain to the hotel directly. It was to the point where we were actively upset at the guy on staff pushing us to go.

Amazing experience

We booked @ Dreams Sands Cancun 3 days before we arrived, we were worried there would be too many kids or it would be too loud, we were pleasantly surprised. We chose the Preferred club package and it was so worth it. Upon arrival to the hotel we were greeted and escorted to the 8th floor, where snacks and beverages were waiting. The bar was fully stocked with premium alcohol and we were pleased to meet Armnado. Armando greeted us each evening in the preferred lounge with a smile and went out of his way to ensure that we received top notch service, he definitely added to our trip experience. The first day we hit up the beach and were welcomed with a big smile from Tina who went above and beyond every day. Her service on the Preferred beach was amazing, she always had a drink ready for us and surprised us with snacks throughout the day. Anything we could dream of and Tina made it happen, including crepes on the beach, salads every day and unlimited queso!!! Josh was there each morning to greet us and see if there was anything that we wanted, we loved the Jacuzzi tubs on the beach and it was just another extra thing that we never imagined. Overall we really enjoyed our trip and are so happy that we chose preferred club, we will definitely choose it again on our next trip, a little more but so worth it and the memories. We ate at most of the restaurants, food was good but could use more spice and sometimes the wait times were pretty long, thankfully we had snacks in the lounge while we waited:)Thank you Tina, Armando and Josh for making our trip extra special

Great resort

Me and my family travelled there form dec1 to the 8th and all i have to say is it was awesome! some of the rooms were out dated but still nice. but really how much time do you spend in the room on holidays.the beach and ocean was amazing. my two boys had a blast everyday. the service on the beach was great and overall all staff was amazing. we had one guy alexander he was a waiter in the italian restaurant but now he's in the french restaurant he was bar far the best guy there was so helpful and awesome with my kids. i would recommend this resort to anybody. food, drinks everything was great! we will be back one day there for sure.

We spent the last two Thanksgivings here. Good food pleasant workers and very clean. Infinity pool very cold. Had to move to different room this time because of late night noise, fourth floor facing infinity pool, not good because loud at night. Told the first guy at front desk I didn't want there because I remember Ed from previous year and also wanted dbl beds, told him that too.but still put me over there, with only king bed, needed separate bed for son. That one threw me for a bit of a loop. Other than that loved it, good show performances, food good.
