My husband and I arrived in Cancun April 20th and were booked with Grand Oasis Sens. When our shuttle got there we were told our room was flooded and they did not have a room for us. The lobby was falling apart dripping water everywhere, terrible looking. We had already had a very long day and then they said we...

I absolutely love this resort! The staff is wonderful and friendly. The food is amazing and the hotel smells like a dream. The beach is the best for sure. They do a wonderful job maintaining it. You can walk out 50 ft with the water to your waist. ❤️

My husband & I recently stayed here and had a pleasant experience. Although we prefer smaller, boutique hotels - Dreams was an enjoyable few days! The highlight of our trip was Jorge & Delegna at the Portofino restaurant. Because of their incredible service, we were able to enjoy a private dinner in the wine cellar of the restaurant. It is...

We arrived just over a week ago. Had a few hiccups at the beginning of the trip with the room but management were quick to correct this to make sure we were having a great vacation. Love the beach pools and cleanliness of the resort itself. Food is amazing, some restaurants we prefer more than others but that is purely...

After 21+ trips to Cancun, always praised it, I will never return after this trip. Dangerous hotel with water pouring in lobby, pouring above elevator, served alcohol to my 15 year old daughter when she asked for a virgin pina colada (glad I tasted it), rude staff who ignored me completely until I got a manager. At which case I...

For those who left negative remarks, I have to say, if Dreams Sands Cancun did not meet your expectations, nothing will. My wife and I arrived here yesterday-our sixth trip to Cancun and first time at Dreams- and we have been basking in the warmth of staff hospitality and the beaches. Dreams attention to details and guests comfort is truly...

This was our third stay at a Dreams and thought this one really had the best food. We liked everything, the staff, pools, ocean was calm and no seaweed or rock. Armando, the pool bartender was great. Good location, we walked to shopping areas. The only issue was we had to ask several times to get a cot in our...

Restaurants- There are a few different restaurants on site and we we're not impressed with any of them. They try to americanize their restaurants to appeal to Americans but they fail miserably. The sushi bar was gross. The restaurant by the water for lunch wishes that they could have a Hardees logo stamped on the sign. The asian restaurant did...

Just returned home from Cancun and wanted to share what a fabulous time we had! The resort is stunning. Great beach and pools. Room was spacious and clean. The food was fabulous. I have many food allergies and they really worked hard with me to ensure that I was taken care of. Mary Lenhart was an amazing Yoga instructor and...

This all-inclusive hotel has a good location with a great relaxed beach, and if you are traveling with kids, it has activities for them most of the day meanwhile you can enjoy either the pool / beach activities or just enjoying a drink tanning yourself !
