TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
We will be back!!! Awesome Place
Curious183717,

This place is amazing. The beach, sand, and sunsets are best but not as good the bar service by Benjamin and Oscar. We laid on the beach and had them bring them bring us drinks all day. They were able to make a drink just the way we liked it and could not be nicer. We have staid at other places but have never had service like this. The concierge desk and entertainment staff was also very friendly and would do everything in their power to meet your needs. The restaurants were better than I expected. We really like several of them and ate most of our meals outside. The wife and I plan on going back with either a group of friends or taking our kids. The places is great for either.

It’s an Ok resort. Nothing special.

nothing special with this resort. Best part is the beach. Food was good also although the buffet lacked a little. Needs more entertainment and resort itself needs to be updated. Staff was great and very attentive. Lazaro, Alfredo, and the dj hector were awesome. The lounge/nightclub was not very entertaining as I was falling asleep in there. Music is very outdated when the other dj was there (not hector. Hector was awesome). All in all, this was an average resort. I previously stayed at Secrets the Vine in Cancun and that blows this resort out the water. Also, we expected less kids but it seemed as if there were more toddlers and children than adults. We had an oceanfront room with balcony which the only thing we liked was the view from the balcony. The room itself lacked many things. Room seems like it was maybe unoccupied for a long time (room 727). Was missing many things from the digital clock/radio to the bathrobe and slippers that other rooms had. We usually go to Cancun once a year and probably won’t be going back to this one after having experienced other resorts in Cancun.

Amazing hotel

We had an amazing experience at Dream Sands. Francisco De La Cruz at Bordeaux was amazing and provided great service. Elmer at manatee bar is great as well as well as Karla at entertainment. Hotel is great

Birthday trip

Firstly I will like to thank everyone at Dreams Sands that went above and beyond during my stay. I was celebrating my birthday and they made me feel like royalty. I should say we upgraded to the preferred club and it was well worth it. You get undevided attention from the waiters at the buffet to the sommelier at the French restaurant. My granddaughter had a great time at the pool because it wasn't too deep and there were plenty of kids to play with. I use the hammocks at the preferred side of the beach when my 7months old grandson needed some quiet time away from the entertainment at the pool. Every night we enjoyed the performers at the lobby and then my daughter and I, will dance till they close the disco! I recommend this resort for families. Please bring some cash to tip these hard workers, they deserve every penny. Thanks again!

Good! not great...

Overall its a good place to stay! Only negatives are it could use a some updating, needs more entertainment in the evening, and too many sales people. Positives: food is great and customer service is awesome. Room: We had an ocean view room on the 6th floor... It was okay, needed to be updated. Didn't have any issues with A/C, hot water, or water pressure and cleaning people did a great job everyday. Food/Restaurants: Food in all of the restaurants was soooooo good! (Except for the shrimp pizza in the mediterranean place). No reservations required which was nice. Beach/Pool: Beach was well kept just kind of small. Always a chair/umbrella available but we went during slow season in October so I can imagine it may get crowded when its busy. Drink service on the beach was great! Entertainment: Entertainment in the evening was lackinggggg. So not much to do after dinner. One night the Cancun Tenors were there and they were amazing!! And one night there was karaoke. There were some singers in the lobby in the evenings. But that's about it. Compared to other all-inclusives we've visited, there were big performances every night so this felt blah. Customer Service: A++++ Everybody was super nice!!! (especially our waiter Abraham and the manager of the cafeteria). However, there were so many sales people even where you pick-up towels for the pool/beach, they're trying to sell us on buying water sports stuff. Ugh, it was kind of exhausting when you just wanna relax!
