    Food options were ok....buffet and Oceana were better options than portofino and bordeaux. Entertainment was next to none and the disco is so musty, alot of the staff was unwelcoming...there seems to be more timeshare selling workers than regular staff. Rooms were clean but moldy smelling and the whole lobby smells of citronella to keep the insects away. Iguanas, Raccoons and Sloths on property if you're interested in a wildlife experience. Pool was ok but needs renovating...whole hotel could do with an overhaul tbh. The beach is not that great

    Good value for the price

    We read the review's before we left goad and bad. The resort was slightly dated but fine. The property was clean and safe. the food was above average. The drinks were no name liquors and only 1 variety of beer. The tide change was significant but you could swim any time. it was nice to watch the boats queuing up to enter the canal. The resort is 25 minutes from the nearest food /shopping area. If you are yous to 5* resort this is not the place. But we had a great stay and the package we had was an outstanding value.

    Okay but could be much better

    This property is older and could use updates and renovations to be comparable with other resorts that have the Dreams name. The staff was very friendly. However, there were times I could not access what I needed (such as room service - no one ever answered). Food was only so-so. The food at the buffets was often only lukewarm, not hot. The pool area was nice and uncrowded so it was easy to get beach chairs and lounge in and around the pool.

    Couples retreat

    Nice place would rate 3.5 overall. The staff was very friendly and eager to make us feel comfortable. This is not a 5 star resort so as long as you go in knowing that you will have a blast. Food was good and plenty of options. Pool was older and in need of maintenance and repair but still nice. The outside pool bar was extremely slow and took along time to get a drink. The beach is not on the Caribbean side so wouldn’t recommend swimming as it is really rocky. Overall the it was an enjoyable time.

    I Love the view of the Ships on the canal, bring mosquito spray, and would have enjoyed more variety on the menu options! Room service was a great alternative. Great staff with friendly faces especially Luz, Milagros, Ruben, Eric, and Marcos.
