Nice pools and specialty restaurants.

Posted May 11, 2015
Pros: Good specialty restaurants, especially the Oceana. Big clean pools and lots of places to sun-bathe.
Cons: The World Cafe (buffet restaurant), food presentation, quality, and service all need improvement.
Comparing with the Dreams PV hotel that was sold to Hyatt recently, this hotel has much shorter beach front but with better and bigger pools. Restaurants are similar but the service and food at the World Cafe (buffet restaurant) is not as good and also pretty inconsistent. Rooms and other services are about the same. You need to bring lots of $1 bills if you plan to tip with US dollars. Clerks at the counter sometime not willing to break US $20 bills to changes. Free WiFi will only work about 5 to 10 min, if you can connect to it, before you need to reset, Overall quality is still very good, I like the Oceana restaurant, Other specialty restaurants are very nice, too.

Dreams is a fabulous place to stay.

Posted May 10, 2015
Pros: Noted in about our experience.
Cons: The only thing we could suggest is to have some small venue for musical entertainment such as a 3-piece combo with evening music.
Location: We now just stay at the hotel. In the earlier years, we have done the extra ventures and activities.
This is our third time staying at Dreams Villamagna, and it was still great. The staff are very accommodating, helpful, gracious. We have been at a different all-inclusive in the past that was bigger, more people; we like the smaller environment. The food in all of the restaurants is delicious and superb presentation. We will continue to go to Dreams for our next PV trip.

Below expectations, particularly food

Posted May 9, 2015
Pros: The kids club was very useful. The pools were good. The room was spacious and reasonably clean.
Cons: Facilities, staff, and particularly food and drinks were well below expectations.
I booked this hotel for a 4 nights stay and it was a mistake. The hotel building showed signs of wear everywhere. One of the two elevators was frequently broken which caused long lines. The room was spacious as expected and reasonably clean, can't complain. The mattress was cheapest of the cheap. The food selection was barely acceptable. The sushi bar on the top floor served the worst sashimi I've ever seen. I made a mistake of ordering a burger once. They managed to make it worse than my worst expectations. Instead of a meat patty it had some sort of pressed brown thing, kind of cheap sausage. I'm not even sure it had any meat in it. The drinks were outright poor. Mojitos were made with artificial sweetener and had nearly zero alcohol content. The concoction they called "juice" was anything but juice. Hotel staff aggressively tried to get us to attend "breakfast" where they wanted to sell us some kind of a real estate deal.

Felt like royalty.

Posted Apr 26, 2015
Pros: The views, the staff, being able to swim in the ocean everyday!
Cons: Changing the ice under the food that is out on the 8th floor and making sure the hot foods stay hot. The food is out for the preferred guests all day.
Location: Right on the bay about 20 mins from town if you want to go to the boardwalk and check it out, plenty to see and do there. Jet ski or lay on the beach.
This place is paradise! Beautiful and clean, all of the staff were wonderful they treat you like royalty! They make sure you are never in need of anything! Plenty of food and drink! I will go back for sure!

Best hotel in the area

Posted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: Everything is exceptional here. Do not even try other resorts...we did and they do not compare to this one
Cons: Expedia could use help in terms of informing clients about no transfers to and from airport; not included in package
Excellent staff and service staff helped my husband who is disabled; they were there for him 24/7

Almost good.

Posted Apr 15, 2015 on Hotels
The room was nice and the pool area was nice too, but there were too few sunbeds. Food was really bad. The tables at the restaurant weren't clean, the tablecloth was dirty and they wouldn't change it.

Everything but the food

Posted Apr 9, 2015 on Hotels
i really like this place, service was great, room was nice(but the couch and bedding smells very old...), but the food was very disappointing, just for that I would not recommended it to be all inclusive.
