    Questions & Answers
    Paul-JamieRamos R
    Traveling to Dreams Sands July 29th through August 5th. I have read through hundreds of reviews and choose this resort based on the majority of awesome reviews. However, I'm really second guessing this resort.....For every great review there is one horrible review the kills me! Here's a bit of background. We're a family of 6 traveling for California. Kids range from 20-6. We have never traveled outside the US as a family but, my husband and I have been to Mexico and the Dominican. Both times we stayed a Secrets Resorts (owned by Amstar, same company that owns dreams). I'm not expecting 5 star all adult inclusive. I booked with an open mind that this is an older resort ect. However, I really need honest opinions regarding the noise, the rooms, the beach and restaurant wait times. We are not a stuck up family, and don't need Hollywood style service. Yet, I'm paying a pretty penny for this vacation and I still have plenty of time to switch to another resort. I NEED a clean well appointed room and bathroom. I keep reading that the water stinks and is brown, the rooms are old and moldy! We booked two preferred club ocean front rooms. But I'm afraid this is not what we will really receive. Another worry is that the two rooms will not be joining or at the very least next to each other. I can't have my kids on a different floor or area. I plan to make contact several times with the hotel to insure we are in fact getting a upgraded, remodeled, preferred club room. However, reviews say that these request were often not granted and people had to move rooms several times! Ok so now the food and wait times, I've read people waited 1-2 hours! Is this the norm? and the beach, is it really super small and eroding away? No loungers by 8 am? tiles falling off the pool? Lastly, the noise. People have said the resort is out of control loud. I can handle a bit of noise (carts in the hallway, music in the background). But I will die if I can hear every conversation next door. I'm looking for a relaxing but energetic/fun vacation. We love hanging on the beach. We don't get up early so I'm nervous about ever getting a place to sit. We honestly probably won't get up before 9 and more than likely head to the beach at 12ish. PLEASE, give true honest reviews. I'd love to hear from families that have kids similar ages (20, 15. 12, 6). We plan to leave the resort once or twice but 90% of our time will be spent at the resort. More than likely will not utilize kids club. My back up choice are Dreams playa Mujeres and Dreams Tulum. Thank you!!!!

    I do recommend saving chairs by 8am though. Beach & pool gets packed. Even if you go down and put towels, books, goggles, etc.

    The Canopy/Bali beds on the beach are rentals. They do have the canopy beds on the patio of the Preferred Club Honeymoon Suites if you decide to book that certain room category.
