I booked this resort with high hopes, so far the staff has been friendly and the food good, but the resort amenities and grounds are small. Hotel needs maintenance, I booked most expensive room and still had items broken.

It was a fantastic trip. All the employees were very friendly and welcoming. The all inclusive was well worth the money. House keepers were on their game, room was always clean and fresh towels and fridge was stocked twice a day. I'll be going back for sure!

Dreams sands went above and beyond all of our needs! They did a wonderful job of accommodating 25 of us! We will most definitely be back every year for vacation. I highly recommend booking a vacation with this resort!

We just got back from a week stay at Dreams Sands Cancun and it couldn't have been better. The staff from the second you get off your shuttle from the airport were every bit accommodating, always making you feel welcome. The food was delicious, and the drinks were cool. Can't wait to come back!!!
