Excellente....... Happy Happy Happy

Where does one start...... Spent 7 absolutely amazing days in Dreams Resort! From the moment we arrived into the resort we were graciously welcomed. We arrived late at night so we headed to the world cafe for some eats, which was fresh and had a very large selection of food. Every person in the cafe treated us incredibly well. They were always happy and looked after us above and beyond. They treated us as family. Everyone of the staff including cooks in the cafe deserve a big Thank you.😊 Coco cafe had fresh snacks and terrific coffee... loved to go get latte's and cookies Our room was very clean and inviting. The bed was extremely comfortable and we never had any issues with bugs in our room. Our maid was fabulous and deserves much credit. Fridge was always stocked with water and pop. Never a shortage! The grounds were maintained perfectly and loved the flamingos and peacocks that roamed. No matter where you were in the resort you were always greeted with a smile and a hola.... Absolutely loved the happy feeling of the resort.... The bar staff was gracious and looked after us always... they came to get drink orders regularly and when we went up to the manatees pool bar we were well looked after. We went numerous times to the barefoot grill for a lunchtime burger and the staff was awesome. We always felt like family and our burgers were delicious. Gyros were awesome too...... We also visited all the restaurants in the resort which had excellent service and food. My absolute favourite part of the resort was the Entertainment Group.... Jhonny B Good Super Luis Benjamin Franklin Yeisson #1 Juana Fanny Santos These individuals deserve so much credit for how hard they work..... They are always on and we enjoyed every moment with them... We were their Punta 🇨🇦 Canada! If you want to be entertained during your stay these are your people. Water aerobic's,stretching, Zumba, Games, Interactions they were there for it all. Loved the Happy Dance also! Miss them all already. THANKYOU Entertainment Team Canada will always remember how awesome you were to us! All the staff was excellent, the Entertainment team just went above and beyond. Definitely would go back to this resort.........

If this is what you dream of, then I feel a little sorry for you.

My family and I just returned from Dreams. Although we all had a great vacation, Dreams Resort left a lot to be desires. Let me start out with the positives: The grounds are absolutely beautiful. It's very tropical, with lush tree and plants everywhere. There are peacocks and flamingos that live on the grounds. I even saw a peahen with her babies. The spa was great. Had a very luxurious feeling when you walked in. The pricing was decent for a massage (granted, we had 45% off and I am used to NYC prices). They did a great job on the massage. Plus, you have access to use the facilities, including a roman bath, an ice water bath, a steam room, and a sauna. As a vegan, I was pretty satisfied with my selection in the main dining room/buffet. I tend to have low expectations when going in to these types of situations, but there was an ample variety of fruits and veggies. Also, shout out to Coco Cafe for having soy milk. The pools are absolutely awesome! There are two main pools that are super long. One pool has a swim-up bar at the end. There are also floats that you can relax on and in general, the pools were never crowded. I spent so much time in the pool, which believe me, I am not a pool person at all. The only thing missing was a hot tub. Now for the not so good: My husband and I arrived at our room to find there was URINE in the toilet. The fact the toilet hadn't been flushed lead me to believe that it had not been cleaned. On top of that, I had family staying in another room and they had to change rooms due to it smelling horrific and the AC not work. Definitely not a good first impression. The bathroom shower is very poorly designed. There is awkward piece of glass that does not move along the shower/tub to prevent water from splashing out. It was very difficult to turn the shower on. The tub is also a very high step to get in, which can definitely cause issues if you have physical limitations or small children. A member of my family actually hurt her ankle very badly, to the point that it was very swollen and we had to push her in a wheelchair for 3 days. We bumped in another woman who said she fell getting in to the shower. The staff was RUDE. They didn't want anything to do with you and were nasty if you didn't tip. To me it seems like there is a serious issue with management and possibly they are not treating the staff as well as they should. At the pool they would avoid you at all cost. One evening my husband and I went to the bar with dancing. There were staff members choosing guests to dance with. I am not a big dancer, but one dragged me to the dance floor and I obliged because I was on vacation. The staff member proceeded to get so annoyed at me because I am not the greatest dancer. He was so unbelievably rude to me that I refused to dance with anyone else after that. There is barely any nightlife! The fact that they call this a "resort and casino" is an absolute joke!! The casino is a room with maybe 20 machines. The show were extremely cheesy and not at all comparable to Vegas, as they have the audacity to do. If you are in your 20's or 30's with no kids/don't like to go to bed at 11pm on vacation, stay away from here. Access to the restaurants were extremely limited. There were often 2-4 weddings everyday we were there, which caused restaurants to be closed for the evening. However, they would not even let you know on the daily flyer that this was the case. One evening my family member was waiting outside the restaurant (along with others) for 20 minutes before a staff member told them it was closed. I only got to eat at the hibatchi grill once during the whole week because every night half of the restaurants closed. Oddly enough, the beach was lousy. Half of the beach is closed off because of the rocks, and there are still rocks on the part where you can swim. Overall, I loved getting to vacation with my family but I would never choose to come here when there are other better options for less money.

vacation 2/19/17 to 2/25/17

Two couples just traveled to Dreams this week, My wife has knee problems so we had asked for a handicapped room which we rec'd in Bldg. 5, other couple in Bldg. 8. Staff was great all week, especially people in food service. Santo and Yohangle were great. I liked the specialty restaurants were first come first serve. Pool bar service was slow, and the women walking around taking drink orders weren't always real friendly but were ok. The grounds were kept up really well but you could tell this resort is getting dated. The towels in are room were getting thin and the top sheets you could see through. Not any where to charge cell phones etc. The shows at night were ok most nights. There are no golf carts to get you around if you have walking problems, also noted many benches were hard to get to, sitting back some from walkway. Liked the flamingos, peacocks and birds walking around. I would not have payed for a swim out room, most I saw had a big step off balcony to get to ground, and you had 2 chairs by pool but hard to get into pool most rooms. Also if you want a drink, you have to walk over a walking bridge. I thought the beach was very nice and there was a good amount of lounges around. All in all it was a good trip and we had a lot of fun and enjoyed talking to other guests. Oh, the hamburgers were the best I've had at several resorts I have been to. Not sure I would ever go back since I try to go somewhere different every year.

Great experience

Stayed with a group of friends here for a wedding. The hotel it's self has a very natural feel and look with a lot of greengage and palm trees everywhere which was really nice compared to other hotels on this beach which were very man made and more modern looking. The food was pretty good all round with plenty of choice at the main restaurant and a good selection of themed restaurants. Our room was a little basic but still very comfy. Very nice touch with the flamingos and peacocks walking about have it that very natural feel. The beach was great although a few rocks in the swimming area. There was always plenty of staff everywhere and all seemed very happy to help. The last couple of days there it did seem to get overtaken by loud American families but think it clashed with school holidays there and still plenty of space to avoid the noise and crowds. Overall a very good experience.

Great Family Trip

We have just returned from a week at Dreams and were pleasantly surprised. We read some of the negative reviews and went in with "glass half empty" empty expectations - and were wrong! We were 7 people so had 3 rooms. All of the rooms were fine, it's not a 5 star resort, you're not paying for a 5 star resort but it was a solid 4 star. The food was typical all inclusive, it was good not great. The big surprise was the quality of the wine cellar (for an additional charge) if that interests you. The 18-22 yr olds enjoyed the nightclub, some nights it was busier than others but they made their own fun and managed to stay late most nights. Being early risers we managed to get excellent beach front beds daily but there were always chairs available somewhere. There is a designated swimming area, we mocked the resort staff for days about enforcing it until on the last day we were playing catch along the shore and one of the teenagers ran in to catch the ball up to his knee and injured his foot pretty badly on the coral. Staff was great, it seemed the entire staff had heard about it by the end of the day - great care! Stay in the swim zone... Thanks for a great family trip.
