We visited Dreams Sands for a family vacation and to renew our wedding vows. The resort is beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The staff really put the experience over the top. The service was outstanding...specifically from Arturo Machorro (and his coworkers: Manuel, Luis, Sarahi, and Sindy) at World Cafe. Abraham from Waves & Sands and Olio was a delight. The food was delicious. We tried most of the restaurants and were not let down. I'm vegan and was able to find enough to keep me going. More options would have been nice. Vegetarians will have no trouble at all! Veg items are clearly marked. We did parasailing, sailing and jet skiing-- all were fun! Tony with the sailing crew was hilarious and made our sailing trip extra fun. Our vow renewal was amazing. Rubí Escamilla was my contact and was absolutely professional and easy to work with from day one. Arriving, I had very little idea what the ceremony would actually look like, but I didn't need to- they handled all of the details for me...and it was all perfect. The on-site photographer did a fabulous job as well. The only downside is that the walls are thin and we happened to have some pretty inconsiderate neighbors. So, we could hear their TV blaring all hours of the day and night. But, it's Cancun and you'll be out in the sun having fun, so a noisy room isn't the worst thing.

fun in the sun

Just returned from a mother-daughter get away at Dreams Sands Cancun and had an amazing time. The location, the people, the service and the facility are all top notch. The staff truly go the extra mile to make sure you are enjoying your time at Dreams Sands. The pool bar staff, Elmer and Eliezer(spelling?) and Ricardo were all amazing!!! They were personable and friendly and made us delicious drinks!!! Jesus Linares on the 8th floor preferred lounge always and a smile and a refreshing drink for us!!! All of the staff in the preferred lounge were personable and so helpful. Truly felt well taken care of. The entertainment team were fun and enthusiastic getting everyone involved. Shout out to Edgar, Pablo, Roberto, Louis, Tanya and Carla. Afternoon water aerobics was always a fun time. They all would stop by and say hello inviting you to activities and seeing how you were doing. Truly enjoyed numerous dinner at Himitsu and our waiter Agustin and hostess Anjelica always welcomed us with a great smile and made awesome recommendations. The service and food was awesome.

terrible experience for a 4****

my first ever vacation and what a nightmare experience! my partner and i have just returned home from a 14 night stay in this hotel and how very disappointed we are. the food was a huge disappointment especially in the buffet world cafe,not much choice in food on offer an also no taste to any of the food. during the day when on the beach the smell of sewage very offensive also could smell from our room when staying on the 10th floor. my partner is covered in bites all over his upper body from which weve discovered since reading reviews were bugs from the mattress. weve stayed for 14 nights and not once was the bedding changed in the time of our stay here. the two rating is for the waitresses and the bar staff all amazingly friendly and attentive.

Outstanding service at the perfect beach!

This has been the nicest place that I'd ever stayed at in Cancún. Facilities are great with many restaurant options. You will actually need at least a week to try everything they have! My girlfriend an I arrived very early in the morning and check-in by Antonio was excellent! From the front desk I would also like to acknowledge Tito and Valery with great service everytime and of course manager Javier Mejia for coaching a terrific team! Doesn't matter what you need, Lila from VIP Services will get you on the right track. Please be sure to do ANYTHING she suggests! Enrique and Elmer at the bars outside would always remember our favorite drinks and were always one step ahead. Talk about mind reading! Edgar from entertainment is an excellent person with great conversation. He clearly loves his job and would always show it with great enthusiasm during activities. When you go to the Italian restaurant please ask for Gil to be your waiter, the kindest person that we met at the resort. He truly cares about the guests' needs and will be making great suggestions based on your cravings. And finally, the perfect room with an awesome view. The best beach ever. But the room was what it was thanks to Santiago. He was so friendly every single time and had the room clean and shiny in very little time! I will definitely stay at the Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa next time my girlfriend and I are together in Cancun.
