We stayed here the first week of March during spring break, the only downside about this resort was that it was at full capacity so we were not able to get our free upgrade, which is understandable, but the front desk was great at working with us. Otherwise, the staff was awesome! They were lots of fun, never let a...

The overall process took over an hour to even obtain our room keys; it was disorganized and the front desk attendant was not efficient or cooperative. Finally, a different attendant stepped in and was able to move things along. The restaurants were quite good and the buffet had a wide...

We loved this resort from the moment we walked though the door to our welcome drink to the sad moment we had to leave. We only had two nights here and wish the whole time that we could stay longer, we had amazing service from everyone in all departments, when we arrived we were given the option of upgrading to...

We, as a family of five (grandparents, parents, and a baby), all thoroughly enjoyed our hotel and holiday in Cancun. The transfer from the airport to the hotel only takes about 20 minutes, and it is on the main boulevard close the shops, restaurants, and clubs to suit everyone. We had a room with a balcony which we enjoyed and...

We are just leaving this wonderful resort. We had 20 people in our group and everyone had a great time. From the food to the entertainment to the beach, it was great. Our rooms were always clean and fridge was always stocked! Very close to shopping and the ferry. We will come back! Thank you Dreams Sands Cancun!
