TRIP ADVISOR REVIEW
“Terrible nightmare – not a dream!”
Review of the Dreams Beach Resort
Reviewed 7 September 2014
“…I don’t know where can I begin with the poor standards at this hotel. The food was infested with flies and little birds pecking away at what was on offer. There was also half done chicken and fish being served!
During our stay we contracted severe diarrhoea and stomach cramps and had to go Dreams Beach medical center.
In our opinion, we think this hotel should be ranked two stars as it is not up to the standard and is very outdated. It was a terrible nightmare and not the dream it’s claiming to be. We will definitely not be returning to this hotel.”
HOLIDAY WATCHDOG REVIEW
“…the food was completely inedible!”
Review of the Dreams Beach Resort
“I didn’t touch the tap water, the ice, any fish or meat etc, and i was very poorly for 3 days of the holiday. I was ill to the point i couldn’t even leave the room. I didn’t eat anything from the hotel, and nearly everyone you spoke too had been ill at some point.
I can’t stress enough how disappointing the entire hotel was. I hope this helps at least some people.”
