    We loved our stay!

    We loved our stay! Spent 11 days here for our honeymoon. The beach was excellent, the staff was amazing and we loved the food, especially the Mexican restaurant El Patio at the resort. Special thank you to Victor our waiter who made our evenings so special with his incredible service! There’s a lot to do at the resort- almost hourly activities. Our favorites were beach volleyball and the Spanish lessons every morning. Thank you to Manuel for all of the lessons and the fun activities! While in Cancun, check out Rio Secreto, amazing experience!

    Great vacay!

    We stayed 6 nights & loved the ambiance here! The food & drinks were great! Especially the watermelon margaritas from guy pushing cart by the Olio restaurant!👍🏼🍹Our room was clean & cold! I liked the smaller hotel & beach since we didn’t have to walk far to beach & restaurants. We loved the music entertainment of Alex & Alexandra in Lobby! They were awesome! Thank you to Hector for taking us out on Hobie cat! It was amazing & we will return to visit again! Muchas gracias to all staff @ Dreams Sands!🩷

    Great location and the preferred areas are amazing

    We had a group of four and all of us had a great time at this resort. The preferred area upgrade is a must, from our own pool area to a great lounge upstairs for drinks and small bites was a win. The resort had plenty of food options and all the food that we had was of great quality.

    Wonderful Dreams Sand vacation in Cancun

    We had a great time at Dreams Sand Cancun AI. The dinner restaurants are all amazing. The ingredients are fresh. We were there a whole week so we tried all of them. Service is great at every single one in fact all the staff throughout the resort are great. World Cafe has a lot of variety. The guacamole and crepe oh my. Olio is great for lunch but takes longer. The best part of the vacation is all the activities and shows the entertainment team put together. The crew keeps the guests engaged and entertained. Hats off to Manny (entertainment team manager), Manuel, Angie, Danielle, Ricardo and the rest of the crew for Zumba, bracelet making, water aerobic, pool party, Mexican night party and jersey boys show and more. The kayak tour is worth the trip. We had so much fun. Don’t miss out on the theme night parties by the pool. Fun atmosphere, entertainment and yummy food. I almost forgot to mention the beautiful beach, very amazing!
