Our Opinion

Newly opened as of September 1, 2014. Our vacation specialist and AM Resorts Master Agent, Jason, visited this resort in August for a sneak peak. Give Jason a call at 1-888-685-6888 ext 529 for a first hand account of this exciting new Dreams Resort!


The Dreams Sands Cancun Resort and Spa is an exciting addition to the AM Resorts Group. Situated along a beautiful white sand beach right in the centre of Cancun's Hotel Zone, Dreams Sands offers something for everyone! The elegant style of this resort maintains a chill-out atmosphere for continuous enjoyment and relaxation on the beach, at the pool or in any of the gourmet restaurants and chic bars.

Location: On a white sandy beach over 200 yards, 30 minutes from Cancun airport, 20 minutes from downtown Cancun. Directly in the Hotel Zone. Within walking distance of shopping, entertainment, and bars.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • jerryboster : Springfield, Illinois

Apple Vacations rated the Dreams Sands Cancun as a 6 golden apple when it should have been a 4. We were disappointed in the quality of the rooms and the overall grounds. The bathroom in our room had no vent and no shower curtain. When you took a shower you would need to use 3 of your towels just to soak up the water off the floor. The rooms and pretty much the entire complex is in much need of updating and needing maintenance The positives about this place: 1) you did not need reservations for dinner 2) Elmer at the pool bar provided outstanding service ! 3) very few rocks and wonderful sand bottom in the ocean around the hotel provided one of the best ocean recreation areas I have ever seen. 4) The foam party in the pool on Thursday was a great time.I have stayed in Cancun at least 15 times and this definitely is not a 5 star or 6 apple property. It is just average. If you can get it for the average price then the place would be just fine but don't expect anything really nice. The pool and pool bar area is to small for this size of resort.

Decent Resort

I went to dreams to celebrate my husbands 35th birthday. We brought along our son as well. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The service is great at the resort. The food was average. I did not like the Buffett but the other restaurants were pretty good. Now on to the rooms...the rooms are really small, outdated, and needs maintenance. The first room we were placed in we called and asked to be switched to another room. The bath tub had lots of rust in and and the lamp shades were heavily stained. It just did not look clean. The second room we were switched to was ok but the lamp shades were still dirty and the ceiling in the bathroom was leaking. We did. It ask to be switched again. I read prior reviews about the rooms and most are true. This hotel really needs to update, clean, and maintain the rooms better. I will not stay here again due to the rooms.

Better Than Expected Vacation

From the moment we walked through the doors we knew this was going to be the perfect place to celebrate our 27th anniversary. Once you get past the "vacation club" sales pitch and don't feel obligated to do it, you'll still enjoy the hotel (surprisingly we bought a package), everything is amazing! But pace yourself so you can enjoy all the drinks, food and fun each day. The service throughout the resort is commendable. The cleanliness is impressive. The entertainment crew providing numerous types of activities every day (volleyball, water aerobics, music trivia, etc) is energizing and fun! Each of the five restaurants offered a different type of cuisine and was quite good. Dancing was a blast at night in the club! We were honestly surprised at what an amazing resort it was. There's even a paved trail to run on outside of the hotel safely during the day for miles and miles. The tour to Xcaret exceeded our expectations and everything you want to do outside of the hotel can be arranged in the hotel lobby. Don't do it at the airport when asked. Cynthia Lopez was a wonderful VIP hostess. This place exceeded our expectations and we will be returning to this hotel or their family of resorts at various locations in the future.
