Service is excellent. Staff are friendly, professional and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and important. The food was remarkable at each of the restaurants. Entertainment was varied - to meet many interests. Only drawback is the beach; it's rather rocky in several spots near the shore in that area. Nothing the company can do about...

My boyfriend and I came here for a long weekend getaway. The resort building is nice. Nothing terribly upscale, but it looked clean. The access to the sea is very nice. It was a nice touch to have someone walking around taking drink orders. The food at their restaurants ranged from average to above average for what you're paying. I...

This location went above and beyond to make my husband and I feel welcome. Amazing staff was very attentive and hard working. The food was great and the buffet offers a variety of choices. The location also had fun activities through the day/night. Would return to this location.

We stayed at the Dreams Sands Cancun resort for five nights beginning January 1, 2017. Dreams sands has a lot to offer. The beach is very clean and calm and warm. It is worth it to get up a little early and find the perfect spot for the day. If you do not wish to lounge on the beach, there...

We spent only one night here, as a layover, but it was a good experience. The staff are absolutely stellar (especially Gerardo!), could not do enough for us. The food and drinks were good, and I should state up front that we are not "all inclusive fans". The restaurants were varied and interesting, although we only had time to go...
