We returned yesterday from the Dreams Avenuras. We were looking for a smaller resort. Overall this met our expectations. At our age (60's), food is most important. It did not disappoint. All of the a la carte dinners had great food. The Italian and Oceana were our favorites. The buffet was open for breakfast and lunch and had the usual items. Evening entertainment exceeded my expectations. The shows were fabulous. The rooms were large...bed comfortable, but pillows were horrid, lumpy things. There was only 1 pool for the non preferred and it was so shallow. I'm short and water level was between my waist and bust. As with all resorts, there ate never enough chairs. We always had difficulty finding a place to sit and not once found a place by the pool. Often we would sit apart if we found one seat...hunt for the other. There is space to add more loungers. I was glad that we tried the Dreams brand and would definitely try another one in the future. Read less

Lovely hotel with great staff. If you don’t want a massive resort this is the place for you. The entertainment team, Julio, Edi, Piero and Sebastian have been awesome every day. Rooms are great, big comfy beds, which are cleaned every day. Lovely food in all six restaurants. Piero in the animation team is a legend. You won’t be disappointed .
