    Decent place. No urgency to fix issues. Pool so hot could t use for a week. Spent time in room to stay cool

    Pros: Service was good overall and staff works hard. Rooms clean and nicely furnished. Cons: -pool temp was 93 degrees all week. Advised hotel management staff multiple times. No one seemed to Know what to do! No relief from the heat, so if you want a cool pool, and not a sauna, suggest you book elsewhere. Lobby entertainment. Same thing. Entertainment was good, however was so hot and humid. Lobby is open air and no AC. Couldn’t stay more than 10 min any night before clothes were soaked in sweat. Advised Management team at front desk they should have large fans in lobby running for the guests comfort. They had no concept. We are not complainers who troll places with bad posts. We had three rooms and will never return based on the lack of urgency felt re the guests conditions. Stay at a Marriott property. I’m sure they have better conditions.

    Fantastic stay! Highly recommend!

    We had a wonderful time here and highly recommend it! The spa was my favorite part, it was gorgeous and Lizbeth gave me the best massage of my life. Ilcia was so kind and helpful with picking the treatment I wanted and helping me with my Spanish. The food is excellent and great value for what you pay. I think this is one of the nicer resorts in the area. Everyone there was caring, kind and friendly and really seem like they want to make your stay the best it can be. We would definitely come back and I am so glad we chose to stay here!

    10/10. This is our second time staying at a Dreams (Hyatt) resort and enjoyed every bit of it. Service was immaculate. Food was great with plenty of options and large portions. Special shout out to Omar & Diego our poolside servers who were amazing. Drinks never went empty. We had access to Secrets for $50 a day which was worth it because you got to visit all the restaurants and adult only pools. I usually travel to different resorts every time but this resort would make me come back.

    Amazing vacation

    Dreams Vallarta Bay exceeded my expectations. I’m so glad we booked here. We purchased VIP access for Secrets..The staff is so friendly and they go above and beyond. Our first day there, we met Johnathan at the Secrets pool, he was our waiter. He was excellent. At the Market Cafe, Humberto was amazing and so kind, we ate breakfast every morning at Market Cafe of him. Omar and Diego took good care of us at the pool, the drinks kept coming. Alberto and Alejandro were great bartenders. The food was the best I’ve had at an all inclusive. The hibachi was great, Neftali was our chef and Adair was our waiter, they were amazing. I loved everything about this resort. I would definitely come back! I can’t remember all the names of the staff we came in contact with, but they all were phenomenal.
