Dreams was a great hotel. It was not overly fancy but the room, grounds and restaurants were very clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly and made the stay comfortable. The spa was top of the line and not overly expensive. There was no need for reservations at the restaurants and the food was fantastic. Dress code was not overly formal, only one of them required pants. The drinks were made well and there was no problem getting them. I had two issues with this resort. number one was that it was hard to get a spot on the lawn chairs on the beach. they filled up before 8 am most days. the second issue was the time share people in the hotel. I was asked multiple times to site in on a 1 hour info seminar. I refused every time. One lady was obviously upset with me and gave me looks instead of greeting me during the week. Other then her the staff was top notch.

We had the best time at this Dreams in Nuevo Vallarta. The hotel, rooms and people were absolutely top-notch! Couldn't be better. The food was only above average to good, though. Only a few items were excellent. The variety and freshness made up for any shortcomings on the food supply. Apparently, they source locals for their produce and other supplies, which works great! Everything was really good except for what we thought to be their premier restaurant on-site ... the Portofino Italian Restaurant. We traveled from Wednesday to Wednesday, so we chose Sunday night for our "night out" with upscale clothing other than shorts. This didn't work out. We didn't mind waiting a half hour for it ... after all, we were on vacation! People waiting with us were mostly Canadian and very, very friendly. We had fun. I didn't mind being asked by management to put on long pants even though our legs were covered by the floor-length table cloth. There was a tiny sign on the front of the podium, hidden by the line of people waiting, that said "no shorts" even if they were nice ones. So, I went up to the room and changed. That was still fine. The rests wasn't. The food and service was slow-ow-ow. The food was cold. When we told the manager about it, he shrugged his shoulders and walked away from us. The rest of the place was excellent, except for this one unhappy meal.

This was our second time at this property in less than a year. The food this time in all the restaurants and buffets was lacking. They must have had a chef change, and not for the better.

Stayed at Dreams Nuevo Vallarata Aug 13-17. It was WONDERFUL! I have stayed at multiple Dreams/Secrets resorts prior, and this establishment met all my expectations. The staff were so friendly and always willing to please/help. The FISH TACOS @ Oceana restaurant were THE BEST I have ever had (and I live at the beach). They were so good we went EVERY day for lunch. The pool/beach waiters are always on top of their game trying their hardest to ensure you always have a cold beverage in hand. The entertainment staff are very friendly and even helped my friend in I with using the resort bicycles to ride independently to the next little beach town to do some shopping. I visited the coffee shop daily (some multiple times) as the service there was awesome and the drinks/bakery items were super tasty. Overall it was an excellent vacation, the resort is super clean, the beach is tidy with great water access (no seaweed or rocks), and the rooms are comfortable and very nice. We were on the 5th floor and the views were beautiful. Lastly, visit the sushi bar on the 9th floor- the sushi menu isn't expansive but they do have something for everyone and it is all made fresh as you order it. The drinks are cold and the atmosphere matches the wonderful views. I personally highly recommend this resort for those who are simply wanting a relaxing quiet getaway. It is not a "loud" or "organized entertainment" as some other all inclusive resorts I have been to, but that was FINE by me. Most of the daytime activities are held in the pool closest to the lobby and I spent most of my time at the infinity pool overlooking the beach so perhaps I missed the "loud/engaging activities". The bar closest to the beach also has swings! I was slightly disappointed to see no hammocks out/up, but that was just a minor letdown. The grounds is also beautifully maintained and there were numerous very large Iguanias that you could see freely walking around (eating all the pretty flowers)! During the day there was also a fowler who had two hawks that he did little shows with- pretty neat to just sit back and sip on a Miami Vice (my favorite) and watch the beautiful birds fly so freely. If walking the beach strikes your fancy- you can go both directions for a long distance. If you head to the right you can see lots of sea stones & shells, and will eventually come to the next small town, and if you go left eventually you will hit the boat marina. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED IF YOU BOOK HERE!

Maid service wasn't consistent - would be out of the room all morning and early afternoon and would not be cleaned. Food wasn't that great. Check-in was extremely slow - need extra help with several people waiting.

Dreams Villamagna Puerto Vallarta – visited March 2018

Rooms: Large, clean, all-suites, comfortable beds & pillows. Bathrooms in the suites are not private – read other reviews if this may be an issue for you. Nice bath (shampoo, etc.) products. Housekeeping: Great!!! If you need more water or beer in your mini fridge, just leave a note w/your tip for the maid. Food: No reservations are required which is a HUGE benefit for me. A rating: Portofino (adults only): they “get” the 5 course meal and the food was great (Osso Buocco / Risotto – yum!). A rating: Coco Café - Great coffee and little treats. This is on the other side of the lobby. A rating: Gohan - We didn’t eat here (we’re not sushi lovers), but the drinks were good and the views amazing. Everyone reviews the food as great. B+ rating: El Patio - I enjoyed my meal and margarita a lot – original menu. B rating: Oceana – Colorful hanging fish are cool and the Mahi Mahi was great. Nice to eat outside! C rating: Seaside Grill – Dinner service was very slow. Steak wasn’t cooked and was tough. I don’t know if it was an off-night, but we did not return. D rating: Snack bar: 1-hard to find and figure out how to order (they have little ice cream cones, but I’m not sure how you are supposed to order them), 2-burgers were raw (yuck), 3-there is a secret bathroom to the left of the grill which I wish I would have known about!). We paid for lunches at the condo food bar because the food was better & quicker than the Dreams snack bar. Drinks: Good. Loved the white & red house wine! Mini bar: Pop, water, beer. All you need. Beach: Gorgeous. You can walk for miles in both directions. Service/Staff: Pool/beach staff are good but was a bit inconsistent. Lobby bartender was fun. They work hard to serve you; and if it’s great, tip well. When we were there, they seemed to be short-staffed. Overall comments: Not a 5-star resort. More of a 3.5 star. The staff wasn’t trained on the “DREAMS BRAND” and that was kind of an issue for me, as I’ve stayed at numerous Secrets & Dreams. With a bit of training and adequate staffing, I think the hotel staff could make this a close-to-perfect vacation. What I liked most: beach, sunsets, balcony, lobby bar, Portofino. What the resort could improve upon: Public bathrooms didn’t have signage (especially the snack bar bathroom). Quick lunch food was lacking (see above). Towel cards should be abolished.

The buffet is horrible, but many restaurants are adult only. Why did I pay the full price for my 15 years old kid?

This hotel has the worst buffet I've ever seen. And the biggest problem at night or some restaurants have adult only policy. What is wrong with the management? Why they change the full price and allow to eat in buffet only. Complete rip off.

I have used Apple Vacations for numerous all-inclusive trips, This trip was the worst I've experienced! The staff at the hotel (actually one exception-Adolfo Arechiga was amazing) the rest were rude, unfriendly, and curt with all their answers! I will never recommend this resort or return there!! I couldn't wait to leave! I felt very unwelcome and that I was bothering them! The maid came in and threw pillows on the couch for turn-down service then ran out of the room. the waiters did not smile at me- they were very friendly and spoke in length to those tourists or guests who spoke spanish, I could not get a smile or even their attention for a drink. Terribly disappointing.

Totally inaccurate Apple rating. Food choices were limited and mostly bad - the buffet food was the worst I have experienced at an all-inclusive in Mexico. Mexican restaurant at the hotel was absolutely awful (lasagna on the menu??) Service at that restaurant was awful - we waited 1/2 hour before being offered drinks, waiter forgot half the order and when we pointed out the things that were missing, he forgot again. Lounge chairs by the pool were scarce, and when we found one, they were very uncomfortable. There were even fewer loungers at the beach - and half of the chairs on the beach were broken. When we didn't return to our lounge chairs by the pool within an hour, security picked up our things and removed them from the pool. When we returned, there was nowhere to sit. If the hotel had a 3-apple rating, I would have known what to expect, but giving this hotel a six, golden-apple rating is just wrong. We were very disappointed and will think twice before booking through Apple again.

Just got back from a week at the dreams villamagna. I went with my parents and one of my best friends. I had high expectations going to the resort based on the other reviews, and the hotel did not disappoint. The room was one if the biggest I’ve ever had staying at an all inclusive. The room was clean, maid service was always awesome, and the beds were very comfortable. The jacuzzi tub on the balcony was a nice touch, and we used it a couple of times to have a cool bath since we spent a little too much time in the sun and got a little burnt! Food was amazing and they were very accommodating of allergies (my friend has a severe peanut allergy and they always took care of her). This resort has some of the friendliest and personable staff that I have ever had at an all inclusive. My friend and I are both females in our early twenties, and the staff never made us feel uncomfortable, and they went above and beyond to make sure we were relaxed. Shoutouts have to go to Julio, Alberto, and chuy who were our drunk servers around the pool and the beach. They were exceptional, making sure we always had a drink in our hands, and coming around very regularly to ensure we were happy. Their amazing attitude is infectious, and you could tell they like to have fun with their job. Another shoutout goes to Alberto on the entertainment team for always making us laugh and for making sure we were having the best time. The staff never stops trying to please you and easily makes the resort stand out among the rest. We didn’t miss a swim up bar (the pool servers were so good you never had to go to the bar yourself) and we also didn’t miss any sort of disco or nightclub. There was entertainment every day and night, and a show every night in the courtyard outside. The shows were very well done. Definitely the right level of entertainment for the relaxing vacation we were looking for. Thanks again for the amazing vacation and we hope to be back soon!!

Excellent resort with amazing staff!

Had a great time during our stay at Dreams resort. We were taken cared of by friendly staff all around. However, dining at Oceana restaurant really made our trip. We were catered and spoiled by our server Jair. He provided us with excellent and genuine service which was very refreshing. The whole staff overall took good care of us along with Fransisco, Andres, Viri and Eli. We'll definitely be visiting again sometime in the near future!

Jair the best staff member at Dreams

Our trip would not have been the same without Jair (waiter) from Oceana! Hands down the best person we encountered in our trip. He made our last breakfast so special we almost didn’t feel bad for leaving. Thank you Jair! His supportive staff Andres, Viri and Eli were also great. Their supervisor Francisco was always on top of things.

Celiac friendly! They have gluten free menus!

Went here for a friends wedding and was delightfully surprised to find that they have gluten free menus! As a Celiac it is so hard to travel safely. The resort was nice. It was a little irritating that half of the resort is privately owned condos and they do get preferential treatment from the staff. Drinking booze in the pool (prohibited to guests and strongly enforced), swimming after hours etc. I did have a housekeeper walk in on me butt naked, never knocked or announced herself. That was awkward. They really need a theater for their nightly entertainment. Otherwise, I'd love to go back! The beach was my favorite place to be. The bar tender Manny (Manuel) was the best!

Delightful

What an amazing time we had at this resort. The staff was always smiling and ready to assist at any time. The food was great and the servers did a great job. A big shout out to the Entertainment staff especially Alejandro for keeping things funny and upbeat. And what’s a vacation without having a few drinks... from Arturo at the lobby bar who’s talents go beyond mixology to the beach bar swing seats. We had an awesome time, can’t wait to visit again soon.
