Our Opinion

Dreams Villamagna is located on a nice stretch of beach and is surrounded by swaying palm trees and free form pools. Most tour operators rate the resort as 5 stars but recent negative feedback leads us to believe that it has gone downhill compared to the high standards of other Dreams resorts. There are probably better 5 star options in the area such as Riu Palace Pacifico, Marival Residences and Now Amber Resort. Hopefully the Dreams Villamagna will get back to the high standards that travelers expect from Dreams Resorts, but until that time expect this resort to be more along the lines of a 4 star resort.


Overview
Located on the spectacular setting of Banderas Bay in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico, is Dreams Villamagna, with two 10-story luxury towers designed for families, couples, singles and friends, with spectacular views of the Sierra Madre mountains. Cradled by an exquisite stretch of beach, tranquil blue water, and lush tropical vegetation, the all-inclusive Dreams Villamagna Riviera Nayarit offers guests an endless blend of fun, relaxation, romance and attentive service. The resort also features a host of activities, great specialty restaurants, nightly entertainment, and a fabulous and fun Kids Club.

Location: Directly on the beach in Riviera Nayarit, 20 minute drive from Puerto Vallarta airport.

"Beaching" Vacation

Dreams Villamagna was a great choice for a special girls getaway for my 3 friends and me. The resort was lovely and clean and the food was overall very good. We enjoyed all our meals, snacks, and drinks. The entire staff, from check-in to check-out, were genuinely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They truly made us feel like valued guests and friends. Alix was friendly and professional when she checked us in. Though she was unable to give our preferred bed requests, made well in advance, she tried to accommodate us as much as she could. Another lady came to give us a little spiel on becoming a Dreams member, but she wasn’t too pushy at all. Isaac in the buffet was wonderful! He went well above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and he was very entertaining. All of the World Café staff were great: Josue, Alma, Eduardo, Yadira (and the rest of the staff that I didn’t get the chance to get their names). Poolside/beach employees were also fantastic. Thanks Xavier and Cirilo! Dreams Villamagna has an incredibly friendly and helpful staff. They helped make our girls’ getaway a memorable one.Some helpful tips:•Getting to the hotel and back to the airport: save money and just take a taxi instead of a much more expensive transfer. We decided to take the taxi from the stand right before we got outside the airport. I think there were 3 or 4 different companies there to choose from. We paid around $40 for the four of us, about $10 each, to get to DV (they put us in a van). I believe taxis are even cheaper if you go to negotiate out on the street at the airport; but we did not want to bother with that. It was even less expensive going back to the airport from our hotel. •Toiletries: They do supply lotion, body wash, and an all in one shampoo/conditioner. Being in the pool and ocean dried up my hair so much that I really needed a good conditioner. They did bring me conditioner when I called housekeeping for one but I suggest you bring your own hair conditioner. Leave the rest of your toiletries at home. A hair dryer is also provided.•Rainy Day: Though we did go in July, rainy season, it only rained a few times at night. The rain didn’t last long. It did not dampen our pool and beach day, or our day trip to Puerto Vallarta. Bring some playing cards or a board game to play in the lobby while sipping on drinks and listening to the drip drop of the rain. I believe they do have some board games to loan out if you ask.•Not for party goers: In my opinion this resort is geared more for families and “chill” vacationers. It was perfect for us, ladies in our 40’s, because we just wanted to relax, eat, drink, enjoy the pool, beach, and each other’s company. There was family friendly night entertainment available. The resort is not a “party” resort but Dreams Villamagna definitely had great energy and was a wonderful place to spend a few days with dear friends.

Great staff in the World Cafe Buffet!

Our experience at Dreams has so far been second to none. The staff at Dreams Villamagna have been so helpful, professional and attentive and some really stand out. As you can see from the title the staff in the World Cafe buffet restaurant have been outstanding. Some of the staff from the world cafe who really stood out were Josue Conteras, Alberto Aluarez and Hostess Yadira Noemi to name just a few. Something which has really surprised us in the World Cafe is the brilliant teamwork. You can easily see that most of the waiters and hostess' are working together to give the customer the best experience possible.

Excellent service.

Yadira the hostess met me with a beautiful smile and greeting that made me feel at home. Isaac my server took care of me like a king and really made sure I was comfortable. Eduardo C. and Josue kept the mimosas coming. Excellent way to start morning of day 2 of my vacation. Thanks

Totally Enjoyable All Inclusive Experience

We were visiting family in Nueva Vallarta and spent three nights at Dreams Villamagna. It had been about four years since we last stayed here, and I was impressed as to how well the property has been maintained, as though not a day had passed. The grounds and installations were in excellent condition and spotless. Everything was working.The hotel was near to capacity and yet we weren't faced with long lines or waits at the restaurants or bars. Great service. And at this point I would like to encourage all visitors to tip generously if you've received good service. It disappointed me to see so few guests leving tips at the restaurants and bars. Sure, it's all-inclusive, but that does not mean that in exchange for receiving your drinks or meals in a timely manner you shouldn't leave a little something for the server(s) to express your gratitude and appreciation. Use one dollar bills or 20 peso notes; they appreciate your generousity.The rooms are extremely large. We had an additional bed brought in; not a rollaway cot, but a full-size bed, and there was still plenty of room. They were even able to leave the lounge couch inside the room, even with the extra bed.A nice touch: there's a Nespresso machine to get a quick cup of coffee in the morning, although the coffee downstairs at the Cocos coffee shop is pretty darn good.The hotel is excellent. We had a wonderful experience, and would definitely return.
