Dreams Villamagna Nuevo Vallarta All Inclusive

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

All inclusive of course extra spending at their spa. They first want you to consider their time share but once you tell them your not interested, it was great! Great service and it was beautifull.

Buffet could have more choices. Seaside service was not good and food was not what I expected.

This place is great. Can't beat the location, as it's right on the beach. The staff is extremely helpful and kind. The only negative comments I would give are on the food. Not that it's bad tasting, but it wasn't a very authentic Mexican experience. Other than that, nothing bad to say, really.

Best resort I Have ever stayed at. They treated us like royalty as soon as we arrived and it continued through out our stay. The staff went above and beyond to assure our comfort and needs were met. 5 stars.

Ocean views from upper levels are great. A bit smaller resort, but very nice.

We stayed at this resort for our honeymoon after getting married at another resort in the area. We decided each resort had pros and cons, but Dreams was the clear winner! We loved that there were multiple pools so even though it was kid-friendly, there was enough space to distance yourself if you choose to. The restaurants were amazing, especially the rooftop sushi bar! No need for reservations, we always got in which was really nice coming from our previous resort where you had to book reservations days in advance to get in anywhere except the buffet. Room service was very fast and had a variety of options that were almost all delicious! The staff was so friendly that they got to know us in just 3 days and welcomed us like we were family. The atmosphere was relaxing, yet fun. The area of Nuevo Vallarta was also a plus as there are many places within walking distance that are safe to go to. As for things that need improvement: the buffet was a big let down, which a lot of times at the AmResorts is the case. The breakfast was basically inedible to the point where I stayed hungry until lunch at which point we ate at the restaurants near the pool. There is no swim-up bar which was disappointing coming from a resort with a really nice one, but the servers were on top of it the whole time, so in all honesty, not a big problem. The pools could be cleaner. Overall an amazing experience and we are already planning to go back for our 1st anniversary!

Very responsive staff and great food. I stayed before at hotel in Puerto Vallarta but this part of the area has miles of beach. Gorgeous pool too. This is my 3rd time going.

There is nothing like going to an all inclusive resort. The food was great and the pool was awesome. You never had to leave the resort to find entertainment or something to do. The rooms were clean, spacious and the beds were comfy.

Good experience with this hotel. We where very happy on our second time here, best beach to walk on wonderful staff that were so helpful, anything we needed we had. From the time we walked in we were welcomed back home from staff that we knew from previous visits. Excellent staff

We could not have had a better time. The room was great. It was our first time at an all-inclusive resort and we were a little skeptical but it exceeded our expectations. The food was great, a beautiful resort with lots of fun activities. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back.

Staff was friendly, hotel was clean, they were missing a few poolside chairs, got new ones in last day we were there. Beach chairs on the beach are very very uncomfortable. Staff was pleasant and very helpful.

This hotel was perfect. I was in Puerto Vallarta for a wedding and this was the hotel everyone was staying at. The room was absolutely incredible with a great view of the Sierra Madre mountains. Everything in the description is dead on accurate, the staff is right on top of things from the moment you get there to the time you leave. They have cabs on call if you want to go into town and see some of the cultural sites that the city has to offer. The best hotel I've ever stayed at. The sushi bar on the ninth floor has the best atmosphere on the property, it is also the only one that is open passed 11pm, and after 9pm it is adults only.

This was our second time here and we managed to get it at a discount. Well worth it!

first visit. very impressed. i used to go to Dreams on Plaza Estacas. I like this location better. i also like that that is free WiFi; that is a BIG plus! I definitely plan to return in a year.

Dreams Villamaga is located on one of our favorite beaches in Mexico. You can not beat the location or weather. The hotel staff is amazing! They are friendly, fun and helpful - always calling us by first names made us feel like we were long lost buddies. The hotel itself is very pretty the rooms could use a little updating along with a larger mini fridge. But the views are amazing from the balcony with Bahia de banderas in front and Sierra madras to the right - great for sunset cocktails! The restaurant Portofino was far beyond our expectations we could eat the shrimp risotto everyday! Fiesta night was our favorite night - with great singers and dancers and an amazing Taco Bar along with various other Mexican classic dishes. The sushi bar Gohan on the roof could use a little work with menu options and atmosphere - no more hookahs please. Patio (Mexican restaurant) was also delicious. Overall our experience at Dreams Villamagna was great and we had a wonderful relaxing vacation!

We just spent a week at Dreams Villamanga with our family of 6. There was something for everyone. The resort was so clean, safe, and FUN! The staff is unbelievable. They say "Welcome Home" when you check in, an that is exactly how it feels. Love this resort!

We very much enjoyed our vacation to the Dreams Villamagna Hotel. Food was wonderful! Loved the Italian restaurant. Ordered the salad with candied apple and pear. Yummy! The spaghetti with bacon and shrimp is also awesome. I had both the chocolate cake and the trio of sorbets and both were wonderful! Although the Italian restaurant was my favorite, I had a great fillet and coconut shrimp at seaside grill too! Buffet is good, but preferred the sit down restaurants better. Make sure you get coconut ice cream at oceana! It is to die for! Hotel staff is very friendly! Julio at the beach is so fun and made the experience that much more enjoyable. Edwardo at the World Cafe was so kind and friendly. He went out of his way to tell us how to ride the buses and his service was impeccable. Too many others to name, but we had a great time and would visit again.

It was my first time at an "all-inclusive". I'm recovering from two surgeries and just wanted a place to heal and regenerate. Dreams Villa Magna was perfect. It is a lovely hotel……..the rooms are fabulous…….the beach, the best……..the food was "okay"…….. I would call it adequate………I found as a "solo traveler" I was sometimes treated "differently" at the restaurants, in particular…………but all in all, it was exactly what I wanted at an unbelievable price!!………it you like an "all-inclusive", it's a great place. One word of information…….Nuevo Vallarta is a "resort complex" and there is no town nearby. You can take a bus or expensive taxi to Puerto Vallarta, but it's an "outing"……..just know, that's what it's about so you're not surprised.

We stayed at Dreams villamagna Dec. 9-23. Best service ever!! We were treated so well by everyone. We had a tropical room on the 8th floor. Loved the view and the Jacuzzi tub on the balcony. Elvira did a fantastic job of cleaning our room everyday. We enjoyed the free phone calls home from the room. We spent many days on the beach and never had a problem getting chairs or drinks. The waitstaff on the beach were second to none. Thanks so much, Ramon, Julio, Betty, Fili and all the other wonderful staff. Just to many to remember. Thanks to Christian in the Oceano. He would remember us after the first day and always had a smile and welcome us in. The food at all of the restaurants was just perfect. Portofino was my favorite. Thanks Alan for such great service there. We will be back to DreamsVM. We have stayed at many reosrts in PV and area over the years and this one is second to none. If I were to really have to have to mention a negative about it, it would be the bathrooms. There is NO privacy at all. Housekeeping was in the room one morning when I got back from town as I rushed in to change and use the washroom. Couldn't do either... One other small complaint was so many children in the sushi bar at night. We couldn't get near the pool table as it was always surrounded by screaming kids. running and playing. These were very minor irritants and the good far outweighs the bad. We will be back for sure. .

The hotel itself is nice. It is small for a resort, much smaller than the photos indicate. There are 5 towers, but only 2 of them are the hotel. The other 4 towers are individually owned condos. Our room was perfect. Large, beautiful, spotlessly clean. The AC was cold and the shower was hot. I heard some of the guests say they had an issue with housekeeping not cleaning their rooms daily, but that was not our experience. There is a large pool complex. One pool is heated, one is an infinity pool. There is no swim up bar but the wait staff is quick and friendly. Now for the bad parts and there are plenty. The food is absolutely horrible! We ate in every restaurant and each one was terrible. At El Patio my husband's entrée was so bad he pushed it away and could not stomach trying anything else. We tried Portofino and had a similar experience, the pasta tasted like preprocessed food, not fresh at all. There is a snack bar near the pool that has burgers, hotdogs, nachos etc. The cheese for the nachos is so watered down it doesn't even cling to the chips. Most nights we had to go back and order room service. The food from there was a little better. We were told that they changed chefs about a year and a half ago and that since then the quality of food had really gone down. We have stayed at Dream's Tulum and Dream's Riviera Maya and the food at those resorts was absolutely wonderful. I hope the change is only at this location and not chain wide. The entertainment staff does the bare minimum--just enough to get by. I overheard one guest ask why they don't do some of the things that are done at other Dream's resorts and the answer was "we are not required to do that here." And that pretty much sums that up--if they were not required to do it, they didn't do it. The Villamagna brochure says they have movies and other entertainment on the beach--they don't. The entertainment staff doesn't even have a PA system to announce the activities they do have, so you never know when something is starting that you may want to participate in. We paid to upgrade to the Preferred club--don't waste your money on that. Apparently anyone can use the preferred club amenities. There is no one there to monitor it. There is supposed to be a Concierge on the floor but he was only there on days that he was expecting someone to check in. The drinks at all of the bars were very sugary and artificial tasting. Stick to a drink that has fresh ingredients. I drank mojito's and was fine. This was our third stay at a Dream's resort and very possibly our last. It certainly fell short of what we were expecting from Dream's
