Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa
Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa is located 10 minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta on a secluded beach near Mismaloya. The resort has the best beach in the Puerto Vallarta area. The sand is white, it’s nice for walking, and the water is clear and blue.
Dreams Puerto Vallarta has many similar features as the other Dreams Resorts. Examples are the no wristband, no reservations, and no towel card policy; many of the restaurants have the same name and cuisine; a great kids club (Explorers Club open 9A - 9P ages 4-12 years old); American beer (Bud and Bud Light), movies on the beach; 24-hour room service and stocked mini bar. I liked the resort a lot!
There are two separate towers. The main tower has Ocean View rooms (472 square feet), but no balconies. The Club Tower is where the suites are located and they all have balconies. The Junior Suites are located on floors 1-5, and the Junior Suites with Jacuzzi are located on floors 6-10. There are 8 Dreams Suites (1917 square feet) which are split level suites with 2 balconies, 2 bathrooms, and a plunge pool. All of the rooms have DVD players.
The resort has five restaurants. They include the World Cafe (buffet and theme nights), Seaside Grill (Steakhouse open for lunch and dinner), El Patio (air conditioned serving Mexican cuisine), Portofino (upscale adults-only, Italian, air conditioned), and Oceania (seafood dinners). The alcohol is all premium brands and includes American beer (Bud and Bud Light) and over 60 brands of Tequila. The resort also has a sports bar that is open from 8PM to 2AM.
The resort has 3 small pool areas. One pool is a small pool for families, another is adults-only, and the third is an activities pool. The resort has a swim up pool bar and plenty of shaded areas. The resort has a nice spa and gym and offers complimentary weddings for couples who book a Jr Suite or higher room category for 7 nights or 5 rooms in any room category for a minimum of 3 nights.
In summary, I really liked the resort. It would be great for destination weddings including children, honeymooners, and family travel. The beach is great, the pools are average, the restaurants are very good, the location is good and the alcohol is great. The only negative is the lack of balconies on basic rooms and the rooms need a little updating.
