Great Hotel and Staff
From the time we arrived to 'Welcome Home' until the time we left we all had a great time. The staff are all fantastic and willing to help. Just be aware of the 'Preferred Club' as if you are booked into these rooms they do try and get you to attend their 'Time Share' meeting with the offer of Free discount vouchers. We stayed with our 20 year old son and girlfriend and they enjoy it as much as we did. The service in all the restaurants is outstanding but a special mention goes to Manuel, Rodrigo and Fernanda in the 'Olio' restaurant who put up with us trying to speak in Spanish from the lessons we had at the resort. They always had a smile on their face and pleased to help in anyway they could. The hotel, rooms and beaches are like the pictures you see. You can lay in the quiet on the beach or party in the pool with the pool bar. There is somewhere and something for everyone to do if you wish but still quiet areas if you dont. This hotel is in a great location as you can walk to the town where there are lots of tourist shops, supermarkets, clubs and bars. A sight to see and very lively at night. Cancun Adventure do a great Express Trip to Chichen Itza which was fantastic as we did not want to swim in a sink hole or visit a village. Well Done to all the staff at Dreams Sands we had a fantastic holiday and your company should be proud of you all.

*** stars
Definitely not a four star hotel. It is an old hotel. I loved the staff, but at some point the hotel has been neglected. My first room the air did not work. Maintenance came and got it to run. Unfortunately, much dust came out of the vent. I asked for and got another room. I ate at one buffet which was mediocre. I also ate at one menu restaurant and that was delicious. Again, the staff was delightful.

Good and Bad
Location was great, fabulous beach, good entertainment at the sports bar. Restaurants and drinks were great as well. Didn’t love the pools - for Cancun you can get better pool views for comparable price. Also wasn’t a great experience at the pool because I was a solo adult looking to relax and both pools were filled with kids all day and night (Great for families but book adults-only if you want a different vibe). Most important in this review is service/mgt. the staff throughout the resort (eg on the beach, in the restaurants, bars, are awesome! At the front desk, not so much. They made me change rooms half way through stay because they planned construction on the floor they put me on and the way that was handled could have been better. I was also told since I wasn’t a preferred member I couldn’t borrow or even buy critical items I forgot to bring. A $200 resort credit was included in the booking but it’s not really a credit, it’s a coupon book that doesn’t even offer great savings and they blamed for misleading their customers but did nothing for me. The reason I booked this place over my other top choices was the credit.
