Another amazing holiday
This was our fifth visit, staying 16-30 May, and as always it was excellent. This Hotel is everything you could ask for if you want a relaxing holiday. It’s not a party resort so if this is what you are looking for it is not for you. What really makes this Hotel outstanding is the staff. They are all genuinely pleased to see you and nothing is too much trouble. In the lobby bar Efren gives wonderful service. There are always sunbeds available by the pool or on the beach at any time of the day. All the pool waiters take care of your drink needs but special mention to Julio, Alberto, Chuy and Veronica. At the World Café you are greeting with a smile every morning from Yadira and exceptional service from Josue which meant that we ate all our breakfasts there. The Portofino restaurant is our favourite and cannot thank Capitan Jose, Hostess Paulina and staff Hector, Martin and Daniel for making each visit special. The other two a la carte restaurants are also very good and on our last night we ate at the Oceana where Capitan Fernando, Carlos, Noe, Ramon and Mayeli made it one of the best. Hope to be back soon.
Marcos and Fausto made our trip awesome memory
I always travel to Mexico and Caribbean and reserved Secrets Hotel but the time I arrived to Dreams that one of the Secrets properties I noticed my room is not the right one that I always have with Secrets properties so Marcos who is supervisor there fix the problem right away with very nice attitude and this guy made our trip amazing.The management is excellent there because they do care about people but the quality of food is very cheap and not comparable with Secrets Properties. Also, all rooms has a wood part in front of the restroom and shower room that water go under it and caused lots of small bugs that fly all over the room. Also, new towels and sheets are other things that they should order because are so old.Additionally, plumbing Issue another matter have to be fixed. El Patio was one of the restaurant that I visited at this property and Fausto was a great person who always have smile, the food he recommended us was so delicious and matched with my diet. Italian restaurant was other good one with wonderful taste of Salmon fish .But Oceana, Sushi Bar and World Cafe were not great like those too.Overall was a good memory and hopefully GM will fix all of these minor things.
We arrived in Nuevo Vallarta from Alberta Canada. This was a 18 person family vacation planned only 2 months in advance. We booked our Dreams Hotel through Ultimate Vacations Club, of which my brother is a member. Upon Arriving at the hotel, we were greeted with a glass of champagne from the friendly bellboys. They immediately took our luggage from the transport vehicle and assured us they would bring them to our rooms. Checking into the hotel was simple and the lobby was clean/welcoming. We were booked onto the 8th floor (top floor). Walking into our room, you basically walk into the Bathroom which is totally open into the room. The room was clean, however, we originally booked for two Queen beds, but ended up with one king - But they were able to transition the couch into a makeshift bed - which was not overly comfortable due to the big lump due to the transition and height difference between the two. We had a beautiful Ocean view, and the balcony was clean. World Cafe is the main buffet dining room, it is large and allows for large groups. There are servers, but the service was not overly impressive. The food was average compared to other Dreams resorts (variety of foods). However, I would say that the hostesses did make an effort to make sure everything was satisfactory. El Patio (Mexican Restaurant) was by far the highlight of our trip - Jonathan was an absolute pleasure. He took pride in his work, extremely friendly and truly a great server. The food was well presented, absolutely delicious and perfectly proportioned. Worthy of mention at El Patio Hostess Paola, Server Jose and Cook Fausto. Barefoot Grill.... was just ok, nothing special however if you enjoy burgers this is the place to go. GoHan Rooftop Sushi lounge is a beautiful restaurant but the food takes FOREVER, and its only decent tasting!!!!! Coco Cafe is very quaint, and serves delicious Coffee, little deserts and small sandwiches. The Cappuccinos are made perfectly, and always hit the spot! We frequented this to spot several times throughout our vacation. Oceana we didn’t try - but others from our group did, and they weren’t super impressed. However, you can ask them for Coconut ice cream - which is delicious. Pools, three total. We frequented the First pool, closest to the hotel and the food - mostly for convenience but it also had the most options for Shade. Pools were clean and warm. There were plenty of chairs surrounding the pools and we never had difficulties finding a spot to settle in. There were iguanas around the resort, mostly harmless except for the one child who got bit while holding a Hot Dog. :( Entertainment team; Alejandro was incredibly entertaining, friendly and welcoming. He played Ping Pong with the children, and was very enthusiastic in all of the activities he hosted. You can rent boogie boards from the Towel hut, however you were only allowed to have them for 1hr. Overall an enjoyable family resort, a little old but well kept. It definitely not as Fancy as some of the other Dreams resorts, but definitely Not disappointing. Kids Loved it!
This is my first ever review and due to the holiday we had I feel like I need to write one! Me and my boyfriend had the best time! If you want a hotel that is a party hotel, this is not the place for you but if you want a personalised, relaxing holiday it is! The staff are exceptional, especially Efren who should always be in the lobby bar! He goes out of his way every night to make sure he does everything he can for you, usually on his own. We really missed him on the days he wasn’t there, he is exceptional! He made our holiday so special. As did the staff in the seaside restaurant on our last night, Fernando, Carlos, Noe-Ramon and Mayeli! They made our last meal special. The hotel is clean and the food it lovely. I know I couple that complained about restaurants being closed on some days but just use another one, there is plenty to chose from so I think there complaints were really unfounded and harsh. We saw turtles being hatched on the beach that is unusual at this time of the year and dolphins playing in the sea In the morning which was amazing. If you like to go out the taxis are so cheap and will take you anywhere and if you like to walk you can walk down the beach and get to Bucerias or the marina. Heads up, they don’t do straws so I would recommend bringing your own metal ones for obvious reasons. All in all we had an amazing time and met some amazing people!
Good deal overall great experience
Dreams was great deal for shoppers looking for a lot of luxury. It was smaller than originally thought. Very nice restaurants. We loved breakfast at Oceana. Secrets was really top notch when we visited. I liked the jungle spa at Dreams too.
