Every night there is different dishes in the buffet. For all 3 meals, there is a kid side which features classics for kids such as burgers, fries, and cupcakesOne of the best buffets I’ve ever been to at an all inclusive resort For breakfast, I recommend the omelets, where you can custom order your own omelet to your liking Get the smoothies for breakfast here to Himitsu: 5/5Our favourite restaurant. Oriental dishesOur favourite here is the sushi. It is amazing. You have to get here at 6:00, because this restaurant gets packed very fastNice seating arrangement (outside and a sushi bar)El Patio: 3.5/5Mexican. This restaurant was disappointing. I ordered the Variety of street dishes and was disappointed with what I saw. Lots of pork in these dishes. The food here was ok, not, great, but not the worst. The only upside to this restaurant was while you were waiting for your food, there was a live Mariachi band playing any song you want. (Despacito)Oceana/Seaside Grill 3.5/5Salad here was pretty good. For main dish, I ordered the Pasta, which was different than what I expected. It was pasta in a clam sauce, with 2 clams on top. Not the greatest.Portofino: 4/5Ahh. The fancy Italian restaurant for adults only. Adults is actually 13 plus. The food here was ok. I ordered the Caesar Salad, which had 2 pieces of lettuce in a bread bowl. While waiting for a main course, there is an appetizer bar. Lots of meat, and bread. It was really good. Main Course was shrimp ravioli. I expected a whole bowl full, but all I got was 4 ravioli. Coco Cafe: 5/5A quaint little cafe which offers smoothies, coffee and pastries. A must get is the doughnuts, and meringues. Amazing Cafe!!!!Bars: 5/5Offers drinks for kids and for adults, best kids drink is the Pink panther, which is syrup and a pina colada. I also recommend the Mango Margarita without alcohol for kids.Bar at night is open late and has a live mariachi band playing. Friendly staff Wifi: 2.5/5Not great. Do not depend on this wifi for loading emails or ordering stuff online. Wifi has it’s hotspots (lobby and premium lounge) but no wifi in the rooms. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.Rooms: 4.5/5Nice rooms, we got preferred ocean view. Big tv, outlet to charge your phone, shampoo, shower gel, shower caps, and more. Beds are big and comfortable. We had no problems with bugs in our bed. Very nice balcony view. Every day on beds, there will be real rose petals and chocolates, which are delicious. Only downside is no wifi, and the rooms can only fit 3 people tops.Cleanliness: 4.5/5Overall a very clean hotel. Bathrooms are surprisingly clean, except for the beach bathrooms which are wet due to peoples bathing suits.

Family time made special

First off this is the best resort I have ever stayed at. It is not as much the hotel as the service and amenities/food/location! Before our trip we had another family travelling with us unexpectedly cancel. This was a disappointment as it was our sons birthday and we had not planned much as we thought it would be fun with the other kids. I messaged the hotel on Facebook explaining the disappointing news and asked if I could arrange a cake or something little for our boy on his birthday since he wouldn’t have friends with him. And the reply from Adrian from the social media department was he would be happy to do that and got the details from me - happy mom!When we arrived we were so pleased with the pool and the views. Extra special was a banner on the door welcoming us as fb friends. We were pleased to learn that there was no reservation system at the restaurants and no limits. Thank gosh! This made all the difference in the world. And we even had room service a few days - amazing! We were impressed by the restaurant food as well as the buffet. The kids club quickly became the place the kids wanted to be and much to our pleasure the kids made friends. And was the first time they actually preferred to be there than with us for meals. The pictures on the website of the beach camp out was just as advertised. The ladies working here were all fantastic! Thank you! Much to our surprise Adrian had gone above and beyond for our son on his birthday with surprises around the hotel through out the day - birthday banner on our door, a slice of cake and bite delivered to our room and a cake and birthday song at dinner. Enough to make a 6 year old feel like a star. Eddie at the rooftop bar quickly became our groups favourite as he always had a witty joke and a great attitude and smile. The coffee bar was lovely morning treat. It’s been three months and we all still talk about how much we loved it and how we can’t wait to go back!

If you want to have an excellent drink, go to the world cafe and ask to sit with Jesus! He makes the BEST coconut island on the resort! Please remember to bring a straw!! We have been here 10 times and we love it

Dreams is a Wonderful Dream!

Two weeks in Preferred Club Feb 2018. First time in Huatulco and best Mexican vacation ever! Loved Dreams and loved Huatulco. We will be back, 100%! Had Preferred Club ocean view. If ocean front is your preference, the upgrade is worth it. We were in Room 2214 and the view was absolutely breathtaking. Perfect! Twice a day maid service was awesome and a very nice touch. Always clean towels. Plus mini bar was re-stocked daily with water, Coronas, pop, peanuts, Pringles and M and M’s. Every restaurant, including buffet, was good - to - great with the exception of Seaside Grill. That was our least favourite a la carte meal. No reservation policy for restaurants is awesome! The views are amazing. The pools are plentiful and there are adult only pools. The beach is also wonderful. And you can snorkel right from the resort, which we loved. We also kayaked and spent one of the best parts of our trip seeing the bay from a kayak. It’s all included at Dreams. Every staff member here provided superior service. I can’t single out anyone because EVERYONE was awesome. Also the entire Entertainment staff was great!! It may be nice to have some later entertainment at the resort — even an adult movie after the kids movie would have been a great idea for “things to do” after dinner. We only have two criticisms: Towel game for prime loungers at beach or pools is pretty bad here. Some days, any shady spot was gone by 8 am. Secondly, smoking is allowed at pools. I would respectfully recommend Dreams discontinue allowing this. Smokers should have a designated smoking area Well away from any public area at the resort. It was a problem for us. That said, 98% of this resort is amazing. We will return in a heartbeat. We were very sad to leave. We also explored a lot of the area off the resort and highly suggest getting off the resort when possible. The area is so beautiful and the people of Huatulco are friendly and warm. We felt safe everywhere. There is a neat plaza right across street from Dreams that has some nice shops and two good restaurants. Nice to walk to in the evening!
