Awesome time
Adam B, Halifax
Wed Feb 22 13:20:22 EST 2017
The Dreams resort was a great time. The service was top notch. The food was amazing and the rooms had all the amenities anybody could want. The a la carte restaurants were to die for. The only reservation you needed to make was for the Japanese. In the bar they had top shelf liquors. The people we met were amazing and from all different walks of life. The only complaint I would have is the hotel was at probably about 70 % capacity and the main pool was quite full all the time. I would hate to see it at 90 percent. Overall a great trip

Arrived back in the UK 2 weeks ago after the most amazing, memorable holiday. We cannot praise the staff enough here for such exceptional service, seriously they cannot do enough. Every room is done to a high standard, we had a tropical garden room and the views were fab. Room cleaned by juliete beautifully every day. We have traveled to some wonderful places across the globe and can honestly say both Dreams and the Riviera are one of the best. Some great places to visit ( would recommend cocobongos and the the crocozoo. Suitable for couples or families since they cater for all and if you want some romance go for the dinner for two on the beach, wow! Thanks guys, we'll be back.

Best Holiday Ever

This was by far one of our best experiences ever, the food was great with plenty of choice. The staff where fantastic with a special mention to the girls at the kids club Beatriz, adela, erik, martha and hilda who kept our children entertained educated and helped my little girl and boy grow in confidence. Another mention for great staff at the cocco cafe who knew the families order on sight and Cindy Vanessa and Ligia at the world cafe who always greeted with a smile and made you feel at home. My favourite restaurant was the himitsu they put on a great show at the hibachi tables. In all a fantastic resort for the family vacation with great pools and activities I recommend the archery and getting out to enjoy the evenings perfomances as they are great.

Long overdue review

We actually got married at Dreams Riviera last year (January 30) and stayed from Jan 27-February 4. We have been to other AM Resorts since and so I thought I should catch up and get reviewing! We loved our stay at Dreams! We chose the resort for our wedding because a) they were known to host great parties b) the price seemed reasonable to ask of our friends and family and c) the location and look of the resort - it's not far from Playa or Cancun and if people did want to leave the resort they could go in either direction. The resort is beautiful. The lobby area is huge and open and the resort opens up right to the pool and beach. We chose the Honeymoon Suite and it was an awesome choice - our room was on the 3rd floor facing directly on the beach and actually on our wedding night over our reception space. Our room was always perfectly maintained and we never had to call for anything. We also utilized the spa and it was great! Loved the hydrotherapy. We didn't have a problem finding space at the pool or beach each day and the service was always great. We loved all the restaurants but our favorite was El Patio the Mexican - plus they had a Mexican night while we were there that was buffet style and it was amazing. As for my wedding - it honestly went off without a hitch. We had such amazing service from everyone involved. Our wedding coordinator Maira really was helpful and gracious. We literally gave her only a few pictures of ideas and she ran with it and it was exactly what we wanted. We also added a bonfire last minute and she was able to work with the vendors to host it and we couldn't have been more thankful. We would definitely stay there again and love the area. We went out to Playa one night, Tulum another day and closed out with Xoximilco which is up near Cancun. Highly recommend for a stay or wedding.

I loved this resort so much... We came back!

We went on a girls' trip back in May and just had to come back this year! I truly believe this is THE family resort to go to in Cancun. Kids all have a blast at the pool while the entertainment is fun for everyone! But as a twentysomething, I didn't find the kids overwhelming either--both times! The weddings were all beautiful, food was amazing (especially the French restaurant), and the rooms are very clean. One tip: the upgraded rooms with the hot tubs are such a nice addition! Just picture it: hot tub with a drink in hand with a view of the beautiful resort and beach in the distance... Paradise! Want to make a huge shoutout to our friends that were still there--Eber, Victor, and Raphael! Eber is seriously the nicest person on the resort; he is so encouraging and makes every workout so much better! Make sure you go see him at the gym!! We'll come back and see you soon, Eber! Anytime I book a trip in the Caribbean, I will stay at AM Resorts because I have had such a positive experience!
