Great holiday
Andrea190919, Wigan, United Kingdom

So many positives about this place, spotlessly clean with outstanding service! Special mention must be made to the in house entertainment team who kept the pool and beach scene lively during the day. They really went the extra mile to get to know the guests, spending time chatting to them and making the kids feel really involved! There were plenty of sun loungers on both the beach and at the pool- a bit of "reserving" went on but our group of 6 never struggled to get beds together so it didn't bother us too much. The food was great- I'm not usually overly keen on buffet restaurants but this one was actually really good! The choice of a la carte restaurants was good and it was nice not to have to book as we have in other resorts. My only suggestions to improve the experience would be to introduce an international brand beer in the bars as an alternative to the local brew!

Very beautiful and food was great!!

The hotel was very beautiful, a lot of walking since the resort is so big. The food in the buffet was very good and the people that serve you the drinks are very energetic and such happy and pleasant people! We ate at the Japanese restaurant one night and the food was excellent! I have 3 complaints, but they dont make the hotel bad in any way, 1. the beach was a little dirty for my taste. The water wasnt how I would like. The restaurant lacked typical Dominican foods, I am Dominican so I was looking forward to visiting my country and having Dominican food, since I didnt leave the resort I was very limited. 3. The pool area lacked entertainment. They should have had music and entertainment in the pool. We had our own speaker playing music but it would have been great to have music and entertainment, I have been to other resorts where they have people come and play music and do activities in the pool. But the hotel overall was great and I had a great vacation!

Family Vacation for 80th Birthday
Teresa M, North Bellmore, New York
Wed Aug 16 10:16:52 EDT 2017
In July my husbands family (19 in total) organized an 80th birthday trip for my father-in-law to Dreams Resort and Spa in Punta Cana. The great part of the resort - all inclusive, food was above average, the buffet was OK but room service was excellent and we had breakfast every day on our terrace. The specialty restaurants were good - we tried them all, I enjoyed the steak house and the seafood restaurant the best. Note to the wise JULY and AUGUST are brutally hot and none of the restaurants have A/C. The A/C in the rooms is hit or miss - mine was fine but others had issues. The casino is small but fun, the shows are average at best and outside in the heat. The bars around the resort are great and the staff is first-rate - they help you with everything. Bartenders, waiters/waitresses, show staff all very welcoming. We left the resort once to do a catamaran day and the guide they gave us was a huge hit with everyone. The pool is magnificent but the beach area - way too much seaweed. Lunch outside by the pool or down by the beach was great - outdoor pizza place, burger grill and gyros. The drinks were plentiful but weak, as you might expect. The rooms were nice, but the bathrooms need serious updating. No ELEVATORS in any of the buildings so if you have problems with steps request a first floor room. If you want to upgrade to preferred it's worth it but you need to request staying in the building near Oceania Restaurant or you'll be walking far for breakfast and lunch every day.

Very nice/relaxing

The resort is nice. Many ammenities. 24 hour room service, butler, bars, beach, food/restaurants, pool, etc. The rooms looked nicer in the photos but are still good. The spa was exceptional. The reason i am giving this a four stars instead of five was the Wi-Fi annoyance. It disconnects all the time and you have to find a spot where it works and stand there. That should be fixed. But other than that it has everything you want from an all inclusive including great customer service.

The good: Beautiful grounds, great facilities; excellent food; fantastic pool, very big, never felt crowded. We were part of the preferred club which was well worth the extra expense, great beach cabanas and Willie was fantastic in looking out for everything we wanted. The preferred club was a fantastic oasis with wonderful snacks, top shelf drinks and comfortable space with AC. Great restaurants, did not have any bad meals, great service at the restaurants and bars . Activities were non-stop, but not too pushy and the majority of the staff were friendly and helpful. Wife and friends enjoyed the spa, and said it was wonderful experience there. (I did not personally use it) ....Great place and fully enjoyed it there.......Here is the not so good ( but please understand that most of these issues are very minor and were mere inconveniences but did not have any effect on the true enjoyment of the trip) The resort is about 45 minutes from the airport and the beach is on the Atlantic Ocean, not the carribean Sea....water was not the clear blue ocean i was expecting. In fact there was no need to snorkel in it because the visibility was non-existent. The beach was clean and nice, but no real white sand and the ocean floor was really rocky and there was some type of floating ocean weeds (for lack of a better term) that were very prevalent that would wash up on shore....so much so that workers would come with shovels and even a big tractor to remove it from the shores 2 to 3 times a day. You do get used to it and it is not harmful, just kind of annoying...secondly, don't ask for late checkout.....checkout was at 12pm and we had a late flight back to NY and were not planning on leaving the resort until 4pm. We requested a later checkout and were essentially denied, and only after begging we were granted an extra hour because one of the members in our group was on crutches......after a significant discussion we were allowed to "buy" 3 hours for an additional fee of $30. This seemed petty to me since we had upgraded our stay as preferred members ....we did it since it was only a nominal amount and then were scolded by the person in charge when we did not properly "check out' even though there were no instructions which left a bad taste in our mouths as we left the resort.....There is a significant language barrier between the staff and guests, and knowing spanish is helpful and lastly tipping is expected and service is better with tips up front.
