We had a standard room with partial ocean view, and it was quite adequate for our needs. It was just my husband and I (oh, resort is very gay friendly, just like every other AMResorts we've been to), so if you have children, you may want to consider something a little bigger. A quick Google will tell you that the...

Dreams Sands has the BEST staff. Everyone is so happy and helpful. We really enjoyed the food. It has by far the best food regarding restaurant options and quality. Rafael at Sands and Waves and Lincoln at Portofino went above and beyond to make our dinners special. The resort is very clean and has awesome nightly entertainment. The day entertainment...

We just returned from our visit, celebrating a birthday and a milestone anniversary. 5 nights of complete and total relaxation. Upon arrival, we upgraded our room to the honeymoon suite. The room was nice and we loved the private outdoor area with jacuzzi and cabana. Food options were diverse and many of the meals were fabulous. Our favorite meal experiences...

Just returned yesterday. Been to Cancun over 15 times but this was first time at this hotel. Good points and some negative. First, food was really good, better than almost every all inclusive we have every stayed at. Room service was also very good. Negative point that I haven't read in previous reviews is that the beach is very small....

My family and I stayed one week At the Dreams Sands Cancun for my sisters wedding. We had a Preferred room at the resort and truly enjoyed our stay. The staff was super friendly. Every single employee said "hola" at every encounter. The rooms, hotel, pool and amnesties are very clean. Drinks are excellent but food is average. Entertainment was...

Service is excellent. Staff are friendly, professional and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and important. The food was remarkable at each of the restaurants. Entertainment was varied - to meet many interests. Only drawback is the beach; it's rather rocky in several spots near the shore in that area. Nothing the company can do about...

My boyfriend and I came here for a long weekend getaway. The resort building is nice. Nothing terribly upscale, but it looked clean. The access to the sea is very nice. It was a nice touch to have someone walking around taking drink orders. The food at their restaurants ranged from average to above average for what you're paying. I...

This location went above and beyond to make my husband and I feel welcome. Amazing staff was very attentive and hard working. The food was great and the buffet offers a variety of choices. The location also had fun activities through the day/night. Would return to this location.
