    Relaxing vacation

    Our stay at Dreams Sands from April 8th to April 14th, 2024 was a delightful blend of relaxation, entertainment, and exceptional service. From the moment we arrive we were greeted with genuine warmth by the staff, setting the tone for an unforgettable vacation. Our Preferred Premium King bed ocean view room with balcony offered breathtaking view of the ocean. Evening were filled with entertainment options such as Jersey Boys performances, Mexican -theme nights, and live music in the lounge. However, it's worth noting that all entertainment ends by 10 p.m. The preferred lounge provided a a place where you could unwind with drinks and snacks. As preferred guests we discovered a array of amenities available at our fingertips. From requesting robes, slippers, and beach bags to a fan for our room. One tip we discovered is that on the balcony, a light automatically comes on at night. However, by simply pulling the blackout curtain across the door, we found that it covered the light, allowing for uninterrupted sleep. The water at Dreams Sands is the beautiful turquoise blue water. It's important to note that he water is shallow at this resort. Which allows you to walk quite far out into the water. My husbands fondness for the grass hut cabanas and mine for wanting to be near the ocean had us staying on the non preferred side. There are 2 pools on the non preferred side. Once which has a small swim-up bar. Special mentions need to go to Antonio at the Preferred Bar, Ramon at Gaucho's and Raul at World Cafe for their exceptional service. We believe a vacation experience is what you make it. We heard guest grumple over small things such as coffee wasn't hot enough to their liking, there were children there. This is a FAMILY resort to tiles were missing from the pool. We tend to look at the positive not the negative things.

    Perfect family paradise

    Just returned from a family trip with our 3.5 year old here and it couldn't have gone much better! There were lots of other families and there's even an Explorers Kids Club for children to play at during the day. The restaurants and menus were all a level up compared to other Caribbean All-Inclusives we've stayed at throughout the years -- they even have their own Hibachi/Teppanyaki tables. The resort is a nice size (not too big) and you walk right out to the beach and pool. Beach towels were easy to find although the prime beach and pool spots do get snatched up pretty early. The staff is friendly and patient. There's different activities and shows daily. All of the rooms have pristine ocean views. With a large sand bar and pretty mild waves, its easy for just about all ages to enjoy ocean fun. The only real con is our double room had 2 full size beds (was expecting Queens) which made sleeping quarters tight at times. Nonetheless we plan to come back with other family members next year!

    I come in with my expectations too high- all previous all inclusives weve done were the best of the best. When i walked into the room i was disappointed. I was disappointed that nothing i saw mentioned that you don’t get vast ocean views from this space, you see lots of buildings as this hotel seems to be in a bay. The walls in the rooms are paper thin. It sounded like our neighbors were at the foot of our been every night and every morning. Which is rough when it’s a family resort and you’re traveling without kids… woof. However we were really only in the room for sleeping so i left it slide. Aside from the average beach views, there was frustratingly not enough beach chairs for the “average customer” and more than enough for the “premium customers”. Aside from that the bars and pool were fantastic. And the food!!! That made up for the rooms 100%. The Japanese restaurant was the best resort food we’ve ever had! We went twice! The coffee shop is great too. Overall staff was nice, food and drinks were lovely, resprt was clean. Highly reccomend looking into the mangroves tour excursion!

    Love this place!

    If you want to enjoy beautiful turquoise waters of Caribbean Sea, stay in this hotel. This beach has little to no waves, Lots of beach chairs, cocktails keep coming and the staff is a bunch of happy people (please tip). Food is good, we upgraded to preferred level for premium alcohol. Beds are comfy, pillows are OK, rooms are nice. Only issue is - you can hear everything that is happening in the hallways and your neighbor’s rooms. Otherwise- 100% recommend.
