Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Management please read! I typically do not write bad reviews. If I have an issue, I provide feedback directly to the management. We provided a list of our issues to management at the Preferred club on 2/22/24 at 2pm ET and now it is 7:30pm ET and there is no resolution, including the fact that our laundry missing. I do not know what else to do other than write here because no one at this hotel has been responsive. Our issues include: - we were stuck at the beach club just now with no transportation back and it is only 7:34pm ET. We had to ride back with the band! (see staff member Maria Ortiz) - our laundry: the reception cannot tell us where our laundry (submitted last night) is located and how we pay. - there was a broken champagne glass on the terrace last night. It was night time so my child could have cut his foot easily had we not discovered it. - the AC does not work properly. It does not cool to the temperature selected. - the room smells like mildew and mold - there are several places where the door frame and walls need drywall repair - the mini fridge was not stocked and was not cool. We had to call maintenance to change the temperature and it still not refrigerated! We have to use buckets of ice. - the tablet did not work and we had to reset it -the server at Portofino did not introduce himself or the menu, only asked "You ready to order?" - overall, the room is not stocked with appropriate amenities for a luxury suite such as placemats or adequate trash bins. We have more feedback. Since 2pm ET on 2/22/24 there has been NO outreach from management on the above issues. We would like to receive some form of acknowledge and perhaps a refund on some of our stay. This is unacceptable. It is moreover unprofessional and terrible that I have to get your attention here on social media. Reach out to us directly. Our complaints, including our room number, were stated in a hand-written noted delivered to the manager at the Preferred Club at 2pm ET on 2/22/24. Unacceptable.

Amazing time! The food and service at Ocean Grill and Portofino was amazing! They were attentive to our needs and wants. They recommended we get a little bit of every appetizer. One dish was better than the next. We had a great time!!!!!!!!!!

I found the resort to be a wonderful place to stay and relax. The staff were very helpful and the food delicious. The golf course was exceptional and tough but fair. Cooler with ice and water was provided on every cart.

Nice resort with very friendly staff & amazing weather! Beach isn't great because of the rocks out front but there is a sandy part on the right. Water is warm and amazing! Food is good but not a lot of gluten free options available. Always can find something though.

The property is a good size, not too big...The entertainment staff Yenny was great, johnathan was energetic and were always keeping us updated with the schedule. They didn't have any postings of the hours and locations of activities. So if they didn't invite us to the classes we would of never known. Food was really delicious at all the restaurants, but the fried fish at lunch by the beach restaurant was my daily favorite. Cortado at the coco cafe was delicious. Second floor premium liquor lounge was also available to us. If you are getting a massage ask for Madè she was the only one that targets your sore muscles and does a proper tension release. I liked that the grounds are sprayed and had no mosquito bites. Big thank you! Hope to visit soon again

Hyatt needs to revisit their Dreams / Secrets partnership. After an average experience at the new Dreams / Secrets in Punta Mita, MX I should have known better. But decided to come down to Dreams Cartagena w a buddy to play some golf and relax. The resort is dilapidated, has strange odor in guest hallways and has terrible food and beverage even at the Preferred Club level. The only meal we’ve had that was decent has been at Portofino but had to wait for an hour after being told we don’t need reservations but apparently we did. The pool by the beach hasn’t been vacuumed or skimmed in days and covered w bugs & other junk. I booked 2 sets of tee times online twice in advance, nothing when we arrive. Concierge rebooks after checkin and we show up at course and of course NO tee times on any days or times for us. Then they send off groups on the back right as we make the turn causing a 3 hr back nine (well actually a back six as we quit after 15). THE POWER HAS GONE OFF NO LESS THAN TEN TIMES IN THE LAST 3.5 DAYS. The elevator panel in the main lobby is hanging by its wires. Housekeeping switched our green light (please clean room) to a red light today (do not disturb) and of course didn’t clean our room and then argued w us that we put the DND on. The green light was on when we left and we actually spoke to the housekeeper. As a Hyatt Courtesy Card member who has stayed at all levels of properties this place is the worst. It’s unclean, has poor service, horrendous food & beverage.

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Dreams Cabana Golf and Spa Resort! The staff, especially Daniella from Oceana and pool by the beach and Chef Ingred, gave us the most hospitable experience. We loved the pool, the beach, the food, and the overall experience. Highly recommend!

The stay was super, I loved the variety of food, the pool and the beach were super, the rooms were very large, clean, but above all, I loved the attention of the staff, everyone always with a smile. Unfortunately I couldn't see the nightly entertainment shows but I did participate in the day's updates. I really liked the gym. It was very comfortable. Taking a bike tour every day is super relaxing. Special thanks to Yenny. On the last day she showed me a new route. She was very kind. Thanks to her and thanks to Jhonatan.

The services were great. Servers Nicole, Deysi and Rosemary were very professional and on the ball. Really appreciate their attention. The hotel is nicely laid out and the rooms were very clean. A variety of food to choose from, but the fruits were awesome. Played golf at the resort. Beautiful and challenging as the wind comes in to play.

Beautiful ocean view room. Facility was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Gave a 4 instead of a 5 due to the quality of food. It wasn’t bad but a step below what we are used to. Concierge is helpful but research what you want to do prior to asking for help. As soon as we arrived we were bombarded with the welcoming staff wanting to sell us a time share before we even got to our room.
