Map and area description

The Dreams Vista Cancun is in an area just north of Cancun called Puerto Cancun in an exclusive gated community called Puerta del Mar. Right next to the Puerto Cancun Golf Course it also neighbors the Puerto Juarez village. It is the only all-inclusive resort in this area.

The hotel has affiliated with the golf course, so golfers will be able to take advantage of low prices.

Within walking distance of the Puerto Juarez village, guests can walk over to the Ultramar Ferry that runs over to the beautiful island of Isla Mujeres.

The hotel will be offering a sea taxi leaving from its private dock to the Puerto Cancun Shopping area for guests that want to get out for a few hours.

In addition to many tours picking up at the hotel lobby, those wanting an ocean adventure will be able to opt for catamaran tours leaving directly from the private dock.

Our experience with the Dreams Vista Cancun

This resort just opened and although we haven’t had the chance to stay here yet, we were blown away by our extensive tour of the resort.

The wedding manager, Claudia, has several years of experience working with AM Resorts and is known for being responsive, efficient, and offering her wedding couples the best experience possible. Check out her Instagram for inspiration.

We have worked with Claudia before at other resorts, and are very excited that she is now in charge of Dreams Vista Weddings.

Pros and cons Dreams Vista Cancun

Pros

  • All rooms are ocean view
  • Family Connecting Suites are available
  • 8 wedding venues to choose from
  • Pools are all heated during winter months

Cons

  • AmResorts are big into timeshare and vacation club. Just be aware.
  • The beach – if you are a beach lover, this is not the resort for you.

Rooms and Sections

All rooms are ocean view and all face the same direction, so views of the golf course, the Cancun hotel zone and the hues of blue and turquoise can be seen from each and every room.

Preferred Club rooms are located on the top floors of the building, offering a private check in experience, the Preferred Club lounge and the incredible rooftop pool area.

The Deluxe Ocean View Room are identical on the inside in terms of square footage and room layout, what will change is the floor you are located on, and in the case that you choose preferred club, you do have different amenities. Deluxe Ocean front rooms are available as connecting rooms, called Family Suites, where you are able to have a room with two double beds that connect through to a room with one king bed.

Rooms with plunge pools on the balconies are also available if you prefer, although the room interior will be identical to that of the Deluxe Ocean View.

If you want a larger suite, there are corner suites available, as well as honeymoon suites.

For the best suite in the house, you will want to choose the Master Suites. These are located in the oceanfront section of the building and offer a bedroom area, separate living room area with dining area and bar area. These rooms area located at the very end of the building, on the oceanfront end, and all have private plunge pools on the balcony. You can also opt to have this room connect to another bedroom unit if you would like an even large family suite.

The Beach

I’m not gonna lie…. This is not a resort for beach lovers.

Due to the location in Puerto Cancun, there is a lot of natural seagrass and the beach is not very long.

That said, the hotel will be expanding the beach to include the area right in front of the adjacent Puerto Cancun golf course. Furthermore, it tends to be a very private beach as it is the only resort in this area.

There are options if you love this resort but do want a beach day. You can hop on the ferry to Isla Mujeres and check out Playa Norte for the day, or you can take an excursion that will include a beach stop.

Another option is to head out to a beach club in Tulum and then maybe stop at Dreams Tulum on the way back for dinner! Make a day of it.

Food & Drink

There are 8 dining options on-site including 4 a la carte restaurants, a gourmet snack area, one main buffet, and a 24-hour cafe offering sweets and ice cream.

I got to try the home-made ice cream. ABSOLUTE BLISS!

The rooftop Blue water Grill restaurant is available for Preferred Club guests for breakfast and lunch, and in the evenings is open as an a la carte restaurant for adults only.

For more private dining experiences, ask about the Wine Cellar or the Chef’s table located in the kitchen.

There are 6 bars, ranging from a swim up bar and a beach bar, to the stunning 360 rooftop bar and a nightclub that stays open until 1am.

Activities, Sports and Kids Club

Dreams Resorts are known as a family-friendly hotel chain offering a lot for all ages and the Dreams Vista is no different.

In addition to the kids club and teen club, there is a water park area, a surf simulator (still being finished), and a climbing wall. Grown-ups, do not fear! There will be a surf simulator for us, too.

Other activities include water sports such as kayaks, and water aerobics, pool and beach volleyball, and a variety of lessons ranging from dancing to cooking, to an introductory scuba class.

Exchange Privileges

The Dreams Vista being part of the AM Resort chain, does participate in the Sip, Savor and See program.

Contact the concierge to make a reservation and you can access the nearby sister resorts for an evening out. Dinner and entertainment are included, but you do have to arrange your own transportation.

Some of the closest resorts are Dreams Playa Mujeres, Secrets Playa Mujeres (adults only) or if you want to head to the Cancun hotel zone, you can try the Dreams Sands or Reflect Cancun.
