Reviews for Le Reve Hotel & Spa
We stayed at Le Reve from Feb 11-18 2018. What a wonderful little gem! Everything was top notch! Check in was smooth and so polite. We were assigned room 4B and it was beach front on the second floor. THE best room ever! Jacuzzi on the deck, king size bed, flat screen tv and mini fridge. Walk in shower with a rain shower head. Everything is kept spotlessly clean! Our glass deck wall meant that we could watch the ocean from our bed and that was amazing! The air conditioning worked very well. Iâ€™m not sure what the previous reviewers would like in the room as far as decoration goes. I think the simple modern approach is more that sufficient! We were on the all inclusive plan but we still had to purchase wifi which was $50 American dollars for 7 days. We could connect anywhere on the resort and it was definitely worthwhile. The service was AMAZING! Top notch! The staff at LeReve know how to create a first class experience for every guest! Nothing is too much for them! Every request was met with a smile! We were served drinks and lunch right at our chairs at the pool or beach every day. The food-it is the signature of LeReve! Every dish is delightful and so tasty! You can not order anything bad at this resort! The chef is amazing! Each morning we ate breakfast in the dining room with beautiful views. They served toast to start which on certain days was over dry. However every breakfast dish we ordered from the crepes to the bagel LeReve to the eggs Benedict was perfect and very well presented. Lunch for us was always a beach or pool affair. You could choose to take your lunch in the dining room with an extended menu. The guacamole and fresh chips with chicken quesadillas under a palapa was just perfect! The beach bar never disappointed and the food is never prepared in advance. Always fresh and hot! Supper is Not just a trip to the same old buffet. A four or five course meal everyday. There is no evening entertainment at this resort so supper is the main event. Three days a week they present a different menu. Tuesday is Italian, Thursday is chefs special and Saturday is Mexican. The regular menu has so many choices. We ate all 7 of our suppers at the resort and our only disappointment was that we didnâ€™t get a chance to try everything on the menu! Check out my pictures for an assortment of the food we enjoyed. The morning when we went on tours the chef had 2 Bagel LeReve ready by 7:00 all packaged up for us to eat on our tour bus. It was very appreciated! The beach at LeReve is wide and beautiful. The sand is fine and white. We didnâ€™t swim in front of the resort but with water shoes you could easily cross the few rocks and swim in the beautiful water. While we were there there were a lot of weeds on all the beaches which was an eye sore. They did have the beach cleaned every morning so they did everything they could have to remedy this seasonal issue. There is really only one thing that LeReve needs to improve on and that is loungers! They are wonderful and comfortable but get enough for all your guests! We pay a large amount of money to stay at your resort so even if you need a few stackable loungers put away do it! Everyone deserves a place to sit at the pool or beach. When there are guests who have to sit on the ground it is not acceptable for a resort of this caliber! LeReve is a very quiet peaceful resort with no loud pool games or entertainment. If you want a quiet holiday this place is for you! If you do want to go into Playadel Carmen you will need a taxi or make the 30 minute walk out to the highway and take the collectivo (public vans) for $2 into town. So it is remote and there are no convenience stores close by. We would highly recommend LeReve for anyone wanting a quiet intimate holiday. They will make sure you have a relaxing time!
The staff working at Le Reve couldn't be faulted for helpfulness and good manners. Very nice people. However we were less than impressed with the standard of the hotels amenities. There were nowhere near enough sun loungers on the beach or at the pool for guests staying at the hotel, and when going down in the morning at 8am, all the loungers had been claimed by people holding the beds down for later in the day, which I think is an unfair practice and there should be a member of staff managing the situation. I think it's a stretch to call it a hotel "and spa". Definitely in need of an image overhaul, it looks as though it hasn't been redecorated since the 80s. Also, the internet is very poor.

This place was so wonderful. It feels like a private, exclusive beautiful retreat. If you need rest and relaxation combined with rejuvenating luxury, this is the place. We loved it so much. My husband and I went with our daughter and her husband and had such a great time. The beach, the pool, the food, the room facing the ocean with a hot tub on the deck, the yoga on the deck - everything was just perfect.

We picked Le Reve Hotel and Spa after growing weary of sprawling all inclusive hotels with buffets that feel like cattle calls and beaches where they pack you like sardines, but still wanting a budget conscious, all inclusive holiday. I am happy to say that this hotel delivered in all areas. Less than 30 rooms, no buffet dining, no standing in line to book a la cartes. Just quiet, comfortable relaxation in simple but beautiful surroundings. I will start by echoing some earlier reviews describing tired decor in the rooms. We stayed in a ground floor private garden view. The decor was simple and unfussy which I appreciated but was by no means luxurious. Whitewashed concrete and dark wood, beautiful mexican tile and breezy white curtains. The mattress appeared brand new and was comfortable. However, they could definitely use a linen and pillow upgrade. We encountered some plumbing issues with both toilet and sink but we understand that their systems are very different to ours and more importantly, these issues were addressed promptly however reoccurred throughout the week. The maid service was perfect. The standards of cleanliness are very high, as is the upkeep/maintenance. The pool, common areas and public bathrooms were spotless. The small size of the hotel means you are never far from anything. You can relax on the beach and be in the pool within seconds or eat lunch in the restaurant or at the snack bar without losing the beautiful ocean view. The beach/pool loungers are very comfortable but sadly they don't seem to have enough chairs in general. Other reviewers said this wasn't a problem but the week we were there( Feb 1-8), if you didn't have your towel on a chair by 7am you were out of luck. They could probably add about 6 or so loungers and 4 or 5 more chairs at snack bar tables and this problem could be resolved. They also try to accommodate beach customers looking to eat and use beach Palapas/chairs. I realize that this is revenue generating and I absolutely don't mind sharing the amenities but it was peculiar on some occasions how loungers with towels but empty of bodies were all of a sudden available to these guests. Again...more chairs seems to be the easy solution. Beach is beautiful , long stretch in both directions, great for walking. On these walks you will note the large resorts that have their hundreds of beach chairs practically touching and appreciate Le Reve's airy and calm beachfront. The beachfront is rocky for swimming but we had water shoes and entered by the public beach and had no complaints. The staff are wonderful and really do try their best to provide personal and friendly service. Special thanks to Lorenzo, Eduardo, Mateo, Benny, Rodolfo and Freddy from the bar /restaurant. And shout out to Emmanuel for his wonderful 8am yoga practice overlooking the ocean and his fun afternoon salsa lessons. I would also recommend a massage at the hotel. Couples' massage for $50US. It was well worth it. The food was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented always. 3 theme nights(italian, mexican and chef night)gave a nice variety to the daily menu. It was not necessary to repeat any meal but my husband had the tuna tartare almost every day and we had the shrimp ceviche, guacamole and pico de gallo at the snack bar many days. It was THAT good. We aren't huge liquor drinkers but had no issues with drink requests. The wine was decent and they had Dos Equis light and dark on tap. It is my understanding that they are preparing to expand by 50 rooms,(not sure when) which will still keep the hotel on the smaller side. I just hope they manage to preserve its' charm. Gracias y hasta luego Le Reve.

I can't believe some of the reviews on here! I recently stayed here with 3 other people. I couldn't say enough great things about the food and the staff at this resort. The food was amazing, especially for the price. There is not one thing on the menu that I haven't been craving now that I am back home. The staff were so friendly and made you feel right at home (shout out to Benny, Freddy, and Jose at the front desk). I do agree that the rooms are dated and need a little refreshing. We did upgrade our room for one night to 5B with an ocean view. Those rooms are much cleaner and more modern than the ones in the hotel. The beach is a little rocky yes but if you want to swim there's perfectly sandy beaches 10 steps away. There is always beach beds available as well. I will say the first 3 days we were there I had no complaints, there was always a drink in my hand and the service was impeccable! However on day 4, a large group checked into the resort with 4 children (I think there was 16 in the group in total - please note this is a 25 room resort). It did put a damper on the trip. This resort is small and intimate - not suited for large groups or young children. The staff/hotel didn't seem equipped for this - it was overwhelming for everyone. On a smaller note, it was our honeymoon and we mentioned this several times and not one person acknowledged it which was kind of odd. Otherwise I would recommend this resort if you are looking for a intimate getaway with great food and a relaxing atmosphere!
