Puerto Vallarta hotel shines with luxury amenities and daily activities
Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa-All Inclusive-All Inclusive defines luxury resort life, filling a roster with recreational activities, high-end and casual dining and pampering spa treatments. A supervised kid's club gives parents more time to enjoy the three pools and fitness center or simply rest in a beachside palapa (an open-sided, thatched-roof hut). Everyone enjoys the views of Banderas Bay from expansive rooms equipped with balconies and modern furniture.
Highlights
  • Luxury resort with rooms and suites overlooking Banderas Bay
  • Seven restaurants, 24-hour room service and private beachside dining
  • Full-service spa
  • Daily activities for kids and adults
Rooms
Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa-All Inclusive captures a zest for the good life in luxurious rooms and suites, all of which face the ocean. High-end appointments fill the space. Exquisite marble sparkles on the floor, while sleek furniture boasts aquatic and tropical colors. Soaring vaulted ceilings in some rooms bring depth and airiness, a feeling furthered by the expansive, fully furnished balconies overlooking Banderas Bay. Guests help themselves to the beer, juices, soda and water in the mini-refrigerators, which are refilled daily. A phone with an option for Internet access, double or king beds and a safe are standard amenities.
Features
Twenty-four hour room service sates hunger at any moment, but many guests prefer to try the seven restaurants on site. El Patio restaurant, serving provincial Mexican Pacific fare, delights with picturesque archways that lead to four courtyards. When date night is in order, adults-only restaurant Portofino dishes up Italian cuisine. For those extra-special occasions, guests can request a private table on the beach for an additional charge.
Recreation
Travelers set their own pace at Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa-All Inclusive. A robust menu of recreational activities fills the schedule. Guests can take aqua aerobics, go snorkeling or ocean kayaking, play board games or simply rest in a beachside palapa or in one of the three pools on the property. Kids have their own distractions, thanks to the Explorer's Club, which plans activities such as treasure hunts, arts and crafts and games for kids ages 3 to 12.

Parents use the free time to enjoy the fitness center or spa--a haven for massages, facials and skin-softening body treatments.

Overprice. Other choices are better

The hotel is older, and that is ok, but makes it feel bland. Everything is ok but there is no "Wow" factor. If I am paying $425 a night for a room, I need much more than I got from this resort. There are at least 2 levels of better hotels in the area and in Mexico, but Dreams is charging almost as much as the top hotels. It would be better priced around $350/room for 2 people. I would only consider going again if they fix the pricing, which I doubt they will do.

Awesome stay!!

My husband and I just stayed at this resort and had a fabulous time! From the food to the pools to the incredible service. Would highly recommend! Beach was incredibly nice. Recommend to stay in the Premiere Tower, totally different experience from the other tower.

9 years of weekly vacations for my husband and I

We stay in the preferred tower and love the rooms, beds are soooo comfortable, excellent food and service in all restaurants. We really enjoy the total relaxation on the resort beaches every day we are there. Could even see whales in the bay from our balcony and from the beach this year! Amazing! We did have some upsetting news upon check-out: apparently Dreams will close in April and re-open as a Hyatt property in December of this year. Hope we still have everything we so enjoy about this wonderful resort which includes all the wonderful employees!

Solid, but beautiful

The location is the best part. Very private beach that is inaccessible to anyone that is not staying at the hotel. Mountains on both sides of you and the ocean in front. Just great. The food was pretty mediocre. Overall, not the most luxurious place in the world, but it was a good vacation.

Great All Inclusive

This was a great place to stay, my sister and her family had stayed here before so we decided to go with them this time. This review would not let me post so i started deleting bits of it until it would submit. This is what I ended up with. The vendors on the beach know that when you say No, they leave. There was a guy who didn't work for the hotel, he came up and down the beach selling fishing trips, underwater cave island snorkeling tours, ATV rides, jungle fun. We used him for organizing our day trips. People in our party did the jungle rappelling and zip lines, ATV, Snorkeling, we couldn't find enough people to do the fishing trip. He was great, honest to deal with.

Visit the seaside grill on your first day and ask them to order in the coconut shrimp. You must place your order a few days in advance. We worth it.

Great Resort

Great Resort Overall! The room we booked was double queen bed, but actual bed style was double full bed (and on day of arrival we only could get King bed, after insisting we were moved next day).

Great staff and food, awesome value!

My family,(wife and two kids) have taken 7 all inclusive vacations in Mexico in the last 7 years. This was by far the best one. The staff was always smiling, and eager to please. The food was excellent. It's hard to find a good steak in these type of resorts, that was not the case here. Lots of activities if you want to partake, otherwise the beach is spotless, with top shelf drinks as well as food brought right to your beach chair, or poolside. The kids really enjoyed the Lazar Tag, our Jungle Exploration, and the baby turtle release program. If I had to make a suggestion, it would be to increase the pool area, and maybe offer a mini-golf course for the kids. We can't wait to go back!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The cab fare for up to 4 people from the Airport to the Hotel is 150 pesos or $15.00. Plus tip. DO NOT PAY MORE! They will try to get up to $50- at the Taxi Stand In the Airport!!. Just wait and grab a cab outside.
