December at the New Hyatt - old Dreams?

Has anyone got any updated (first hand?) information on the status of the old Dreams Hotel in PV? Specifically what has been done physically to the property and , if it has reopened, what about the staff and ambience? Thanks for any info, as we are yearly visitors but hesitate to jump into something...

Location to post info about Dreams becoming Hyatt

I am hoping that anyone who lives in PV and visits the Dreams site or someone who is visiting PV and visits the site can, from time to time, post factual information on how the conversion to Hyatt is going, what is changing, how far along they are, etc. I think this might help some of us who are alr...

Back from 10 days at Dreams PV - hope Hyatt doesn't ruin it

My wife and I just returned from our 12th stay at the ex-Camino Real, soon to be ex-Dreams at PV. We were happy that the staff was all there, the spirits were good and the grounds were in good shape. For the most part, things were as always. We heard mixed stories about what is going to happen when ...

Updated WiFi

OK, Mogens, thanks, will do … if we spot any new ones. Would be nice if PV itself decided to provide it city-wide … we can hope! I appreciate you doing the map/location list.

Cheers,
T.

Pesos from dollars …. best way?

Hello All, It has been about 4 years since we have been to PV and after going yearly for 20 years, we miss it. In the meantime, it seems traveler's checks have more or less vanished in the USA. We used to bring them with us and cash into pesos at downtown banks. Now I am assuming most folks either b...

WiFi in PV

Thanks very much for this! Returning to our favorite city after a 4 year absence with smartphones, so this is a big help!

The last few weeks at Dreams before the reno

Thanks for the reply. Again, I am not concerned about arriving to a shuttered resort, but more concerned about whether the usual high quality of service, food and amenities will continue to the very shut down. We are leaving on April 21st so should leave before that … but if the staff is being cut a...

Dreams conversion to Hyatt?

My wife and I have been coming to PV since 1991 and we used to stay at the Camino Real, now the Dreams just south of town. Recently I booked 10 days in early April 2014 and put down a deposit. My travel agent now informs me that the hotel ownership is changing. I managed to find out that they are sh...

Dreams vs. Camino Real vs. El Presidente?

Hi All, My wife and I love PV and have stayed, almost yearly, at what used to be the Camino Real, which is now the Dreams. When it became Dreams it went to the AI format which we don't like. The beach, staff and property cannot be beat IMO. However a big part of what we liked about PV was strolling ...

Re:Anyone stayed at the Camino since it changed?

Hello All Camino Real Lovers, My wife and I have been vacationing in PV for over 15 yrs. We lucked out and stayed at the Camino by chance way back when and have stayed there every time, usually for about 10 days in March. We love it. We love PV. The attractive things about the Camino are its beach (...
