Wonderful trip
Reviewed 5 hours ago

My daughter got married at Dreams. The communication was a bit difficult and we were worried we might not get what we requested... but everything turned out beautifully! Our group was 24 and there were very few complaints so I think that’s a huge compliment. The location is rural and it takes time to get there from the airport. It’s also on the Pacific coast so don’t expect carribean blue water. The beach at the hotel is also not great. But the pools are big and meander through the resort. If you’re a pool person you’ll love it! CONS: The “steakhouse” restaurant was terrible. Most of us had gastric issues while there... not sure the cause, but be careful.
PROS: We chartered a local fishing/snorkeling boat for our group that was amazing. The seafood restaurant cooked and served our catch for us. Highly recommend excursions through Alex on the Beach! Watching the monkeys was fun.

Great Resort

Great resort to visit with lots of pools, restaurants, staff treated us like family often bringing us snacks at the pool without even asking. You could relax in peace or go to party at different pools around the property.

Was a little worried reading about the Virus going around the hotel. Everything was sparkling clean and there was hand Sanitize Gel around everywhere. We reserved a Cabana on the Beach for Friday and that was good. The Waiter service was lacking a little, but there was a portable bar, close enough to just walk up and get a drink. Saturday we had a Cabana reserved on the Pool area, There as a little confusion on who Reserved the Cabana. But Sergio handled it for us quickly. Room was clean nice, They did not restock the Mini Bar snack at all. A few hall ways at night, the auto lights did not come on when we were walking down or back to our room from Dinner or the show. We will be back for sure. Soon Hopefully.

Good but overpriced

This is a nice place, but I don’t think it belongs in the $500+ a night category.

The wait to check in at reception was surprisingly long and chaotic (only two people working the main desk), and after we did check in we were subjected to a timeshare-esque sales pitch trying to get us to attend a “VIP breakfast” for their new property in the area. We’d had a long trip that day and we really just wanted to get our rooms and start relaxing, so this wasn’t particularly welcome, not to mention being somewhat unbecoming of a 5-star property.

The food we had at every restaurant was excellent, definitely met the 5-star standard, but there isn’t as much choice as it first appears. Two of the main dinner restaurants were closed on our first night there and the hibachi place supposedly books up days in advance (free tip: we got a spot just by showing up to the restaurant on the spot and asking for one). So you need to plan ahead.

Also, even though it’s supposedly a high-end all-inclusive, it is still an all-inclusive, so things did get a bit rowdy (ie, loud) after 4pm. If you’re looking for a quiet view of the sunset, try to avoid the drunk groups in and around the pool.

All that said, this is a beautiful property with solid amenities, and the staff are all very nice. I just don’t think it belongs in the $500+ a night category.

Awesome Vacation

We had a great time. Food was excellent! Lots of Pool space....chairs always available. The grounds were very beautiful lots of different plants and trees. Great service. A nice breeze the whole time. They had some great entertainers in the CoCo Cafe. (Flute and Violinist were excellent). We would visit again. Monkeys were fun.
