April 2012, 62 members of our family visited Dreams for the Normore wedding!! It was the trip of a lifetime, and every single one of us are just waiting to go back!! Every member of the Dreams staff make you feel welcome and comfortable during the entire stay!! An amazing time had by all! Whenever the family gets together, Mexico is always brought up! DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY NEGATIVE REVIEWS!!! Even on rainy days, the staff would figure out something fun to do inside!! Everyone is just dreaming of going back to Dreams!! We loved it so much and would recommend it to ANYONE, babies up to seniors!! The best vacation ever!! We would like to thank everyone at Dreams from the bottom of our hearts for helping to create the best holiday we've ever been on! Can't wait to go back :)

We had a wonderful experience at Dreams Puerto Aventuras. The food and entertainment staff were incredibly helpful and attentive. Every meal we had was delicious and the portions were the right size to enjoy without being overwhelmed. We felt comfortable leaving our kids with their Explorers' Club staff, who were friendly and well organized with activities for the kids. We didn't use the Explorers' Club for full days but the kids were able to join just the activities that interested them and then could use the pool or beach as well. The night time shows and activities were fun and appropriate for the whole family.

Downsides - I felt the front desk staff was not very responsive to problems. Our room was missing the TV remote and it took 2 days and 2 separate requests to get one. Our original room had an issue and it took a number of hours to get relocated to a new room. I also would not pay extra for an ocean view room unless you can guarantee you will be on a high floor. The ocean views on the lower floors are obscured by palm trees and it is more like a pool view than an ocean view.

Our overall experience was very positive and we enjoyed our time at Dreams Puerto Aventuras.

Just got back from a 7 day trip at Dreams Puerto Aventuras! When booking the trip make sure you arrive after 3pm or pack a bathing suit in your carry on bag! We arrived at 11am and didn't get a room before 3:30pm. Very frustrating with a 6 and a 2 year old in tow! They were courteous and showed us around the premises! Allowed to have lunch and offered our children ice cream! It was hot and I am 7 months pregnant! I would have appreciated a curtesy room to change and get in that pool!

On the upside! The staff is wonderful! Always ready and eager to serve! My daughter loved it! Great family vacation spot if you have kids in the 3 to 12 year old age level! Resort is tiny but it kind of makes it so great! You can let your kids go and you can always have an eye on them! That was my favourite part! A larger resort would have been a disaster for us this trip!

Food is good! The sushi was delightful! We were a little frustrated with the Portofino as men need long pants and collared shirt! I didn't pack long pants for my husband so we were left out! THe world cafe is ok! Not better though! The seaside grill was fun and the food was good! The paella and bbq on the beach is fantastic! The smoothies and waffeleria is a delightful idea!

Will go back with my kids but not for a couples vacation! Overall, my rating would be a 4 star!

Room Tip: The ocean view is spectacular!

DO NOT LISTEN TO THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS!

My family and I traveled to mexico and stayed at the Dreams PA from august 5th to the 12th . Let me just start off by saying that this resort is not the most luxurious, large or new hotel- however it is still a fantastic resort!

We started off our stay on a bad note . When we arrived to the hotel we were notified that our room would not be ready for another 2 hours. We were not impressed. We decided to make the best of things and go explore . after a long day of traveling we were all starving so we decided to go eat and not bother waiting for the room so we could shower/change etc , like we usually do before dinner . anyways , we went to "El Patio" restaurant and our waiter was Jimmy . From the moment we steped foot into the restaurant our vacation went from bad to fantastic!

Food:
Portofino- amazing! The stuffed chicken ,fettuccini alfredo, tiramisu and ice-cream was just extraordinary! We always requested israel to be our waiter. He went out of his was to make sure we were happy . He is super friendly , funny and adorable! lol .
El Patio- Like i said above jimmy was our waiter at el patio and he was huge part in making oue vacation special. Everything at El Patio was fantastic EXEPT the duck.
Oceana- Didn't like the menu so we didn't try it
Seaside grill- This was our daily spot for breakfast and lunch. the food is fantastic and the staff is just amazing...super friendly and they strive to please you . At seaside our fav staff are Jose and jorge the matradee.
world cafe - lots of variety however we only ate there once as we enjoy restaurants much more then buffet.
Gohan sushi - My family and i are huge sushi fans and are very critical on sushi . we have had "mexican sushi" before and it was gross but not at gohans! it was actually delicious and in the top 5 of sushi places that my family and i eat at!
Overall the food was amazing and we were very pleased . Btw , the crepe/waffles at barefoot grill are spectacular.

Spa: Great experience but very expensive

Rooms: Very large , clean and nice with very comfortable beds.

Pools: Super clean and large..lots of fun!

Beach/Ocean: White sand and crystal blue water . The natural pool is full of fish and is great for everyone. as for the size of the beach, it wasn't any where near the size we are used to, but it is still gorgeous . the water trampoline and iceberg are lots of fun. No matter what time you go to the beach , you will always find a great spot.

Bars/Nightlife: Delicious drinks (not watered down AT ALL) the bar tenders are hilarious and very nice. The drink waiters work extremely hard. They go to the beach and take everyones order, go make the drinks, deliver them, collect the glasses and repeat..all day long. Our drink waiter was Juan Carlos. I didn't even need to order . he would just bring us our usual. He is also very friendly and funny . The shows are amazing (especially the fire show). after the shows we head down to desires bar and dance the night away... great fun!

Daily entertainment/ dream team: The entertainment team was phenomenal! We loved every single one of them . Especially Kayla, Victor and Jesus . The zumba is tons of fun and my daughters favourite activity of the day! The bungee trampoline was also enjoyed very very much. There was never a dull moment .

Dive shop: We booked a snorkelling elusion through the die shop and we were very impressed. We saw everything that was promised ( Tons of giant sea turtles, sting rays and a barracuda) and our tour guide Isaias made the trip 10 times more enjoyable. Will was great! super nice and fun to talk too , as well as extremely informative. The bobbie cat rides are great and so was our captain Jorge Alberto!

Our vacation was fantastic and we will for sure be returning! This hotel is great for all ages and if you go into your holiday at the Dreams PA with an open mid you will absolutely love it guaranteed!

Again, a special thanks to : Jimmy and Jorge at El Patio, Jose and Jorge at Seaside grill, Kayla and Victor from the entertainment team, Juan carlos our drink waiter , Israel from portofino , and Will, Isaias and Jorge Alberto from the dive shop for making our trip so special!

Despite a visit from tropical storm Ernesto, our stay at this resort was amazing!!! The entire staff was friendly, helpful and extremely accommodating! Good food, great drinks and a perfect family atmosphere. Our group of 16 people ranging in age from 13 to 62 was well taken care of and entertained from morning till night. The resort is very well maintained and everyone is very pleasant. The entertainment staff was excessively talented and energetic! They made our week more fun than we could have imagined!! Thank you!!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the ease of access to everything from the first floor rooms.
