    Top notch resort experience. If you’re looking for the all inclusive feel this will hit the spot. I would recommend either with family or with a group of friends. Might be a little boring with just a couple.

    The best resort

    Dreams was an excellent resort. The property was clean and the staff were really friendly. I stayed on a Jr suite swim out room and it was an amazing experience.

    Dreams did not live up to their name on this trip.

    Room was not clean very well when checked in. Bed had food between pillows. Front door had a big gap to the outside.

    Loved, loved, loved our recent week at Dreams Vallarta. We went for a family wedding and were so very happy with not only the resort itself, but the entire staff, who were without exception friendly and ever so helpful. Our butler, Jose Becerra, was especially attentive in filling all of our wishes and wants. The food at the several on property restaurants was very creative and delicious, especially at Capers where we hosted a pre-set menu dinner in the wine room, which was perfectly arranged by Jose. The wait staff couldn't have been more attentive and the food was scrumptious (try the tomato soup). The beautiful and spacious ocean front room in the Preferred Club was large and clean and the bed super comfortable. Food was available for breakfast and lunch and a bar was available on the second floor. Beach and pool areas offered plenty of room and had endless beverage and food services. The wedding venue was perfect and again, wait staff was exemplary and the food delicious. Very, very happy guests were we!!!

    The week we recently spent at Dreams Vallarta Preferred Club for our niece’s wedding was truly exceptional. The amazing oceanfront suite with a dipping pool on the balcony and a shower to die for was just the start. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed super comfortable. We were tended to by butler, Jose Becerra. Jose was kind and friendly and went to great lengths to see that all of our needs and wants were met. Jose was assisted by Chief Concierge Hector Pulido and Room Division Manager Erika Agundis who also bent over backwards to tend to our every wish. Food offered at the restaurants on property was creative, delicious, and plentiful and the large dinner party we had in the wine room at Capers (arranged by Jose) will be hard to top. The Carnival offered an abundance of dishes, each one better than the last, and the wait staff could not have been more efficient and friendly. The entire staff at the Resort were all friendly, kind and helpful. The wedding setting was beautiful, the food was scrumptious, and the after party off the chart. A great wedding venue. The beach and pool areas were great as well. All in all it was a wonderful week at Dreams Vallarta and we will be going back soon.
