Great place for a relaxing week.
TARAS D.

Incredible place to stay. Get on a plane get to Punta Cana, get outside and thereís apple vacation staff waiting for you to take you to the resort. Once you get to the resort, every staff member is there to make sure your week is the best most relaxing week. The rooms are clean. Lots of food choices, all the water that they give you at restuarants is purified so donít be afraid to drink it. All the hotel staff speaks very good English so no trouble there. The are lots of bars and if the drinks arenít strong donít be afraid to ask. My one recommendation is to bring lots of singles so that you can tip your bartenders/waiters. The rate for an American dollar is 45-50 pesos so a dollar or more tip will go a long the way for hotel staff. There are always apple vacation staff at the hotel so if thereís any questions or concerns they are there to help. Upon check out they will let you know when youíll need to be ready in the lobby and once itís your time all you have to do is get into the van and get dropped off at the airport. I would say that having that easy transition from the airport to the resort and vise versa is cruisal because itís just one less thing to worry about. Overall stay was amazing and I would 10/10 recommend to a friend about apple vacation and Dreams Palm Beach Resort.

This is our third trip to DR and second stay at a Dreams Resort. To spite the issues with the beach, we had a great stay. Staff did a remarkable job cleaning seaweed off beach daily however could not avoid the impacts of Mother Nature. I knew to expect some seaweed but I did not have any understanding the beautiful blue water would be muddy brown. The main reason we stayed at dreams was because of our prior very positive experience with explorers club. While the Club Facilities at this resort were gorgeous they were situated in an out-of-the-way location that our daughter never felt comfortable using them and explorers club staff did not proactively seek out kids during breakfast like we had experienced elsewhere. This was our first experience with preferred status and I highly recommend it l. seaside Grill was our favorite restaurant for breakfast lunch and dinner. over all beautiful resort and great staff

Overall hotel was very clean. Food was far superior to resort we stayed at in Cancun. Bar service was a bit slow and drinks were very inconsistent - we would order exact same drink and it looked and tasted totally different. We were very disappointed with pool activities and evening entertainment. We had so much fun participating in and watching pool activities at resort in Cancun. The night club was BORING. Very few people mainly due to music - music was totally geared to local 20 year old population. Crowd was a mixture of ages so music should be. A lot of people went to night club and left after 30 min or so. Hotel was very clean and food was decent. Buffet was far superior to what we were expecting. Beach has seaweed. They did try to manage it but it was still an issue. I would recommend this resort IFF you are not interested in pool games and night time entertainment.

Beautiful Hotel with Terrible Food
JENNY H.
Jun 20 2018
The hotel itself is beautiful, the pools and beach were nice. It was an issue finding a beach chair by any of the main pools. WE had to stick to the small preferred club pool. The Entertainment team did a dod job in their nightly performances but unless you were a child there was not much entertainment any other time. The pools close at 7 pm which is way too early and leaves you with nothing to do for hours. The food quality was terrible and we were hungry half the time because there just wasn't any quality food to eat and beware of eating any meat due to the unsanitary ways it's handled. The staff were very nice and did their best. The rooms were always very clean. The last few days though we could barely go outside due to a horrific smell coming from the beach area, rotting seaweed and dead fish smell. It was so bad, it made you double over and gag. I would say it's more of a 3 star hotel. The flights were awful and I would never book another trip that used Frontier as the airline.

I was a little disappointed with the beach. Litter all over the place. My nightmare of a complaint was the information I received at the front desk when the gentleman hooked my phone up to their wi/fi. He told me and it also said in the pamphlet that I received that I could make calls free of charge to the U.S. Wrong!!! I came home to a $399.61 bill just for roaming charges. I was and am still not happy about that.

The Real Opinion
KATARINA C.
Jun 17 2018
First: Apple Vacations - I must say that they made a mistake with my airfare when adding infant in lap and tried to charge me a lot more than I was quoted (after I already paid for everything else) but after I complained and asked them to go back to the recorded conversation from the first time when I was quoted less, they did and called me back and honored what they first promised. I appreciate the honesty of the company and all other experience with them was good (transportation to the hotel and back to the airport etc) Hotel: everything was absolutely great (specially staff - very helpful and friendly - my favorite was Odry), resort was beautiful, spa was 100% worth the money (and I am not easy to please when it comes to massages and environment), food was good (I did not go to the restaurants, only seaside grill, which was nice), a lot to choose from, beach sand was really nice but beach sucked (dirty water, not very picturesque, and small), however, pools made up for it (nice and clean). The worst about my overall experience was the hotel room. Very outdated furniture (and I paid for nicer room), not a good quality, musty smell, AC did not work based on how you set it, and floor tiles were very slippery. My 16 months old fell several times and I just could not relax in the room. Cleaning staff was there regularly and kept the fridge stocked too but the management should really consider investing in overall room remodeling. If they remodel rooms, I would definitely consider coming back

Our stay at Dreams started out very rough. We were checked in and got our room to find it was not up to the standard of what we expected or paid for. The room had a leak by the light in the bathroom and the faucet in the sink would not turn off the water unless it was a special turn and still had a steady flow, the room had little bugs also. The overall apprearance of the room was very disappointing. We told the Preferred club person the issues they sent maintenance and didn't not help anything and they said they had no rooms available to us to change room til the following day.(this person in preferred on 6/2/18 was not friendly or helpful in any way) we had to demand talking to a manager! Once we got with a manager and they saw the room it was agreed it was in need of repair. We were offered another room that was totally remodeled and in perfect condition. The Manager on staff that night was very nice and wanted us to be happy with our relocation. Isabel the manager at the hotel was very nice and apologized the next day and offered many things to make up for the error and inconvience. Once we moved rooms and worked out the issues the rest of the stay was wonderful.. The resort is beautiful and the staff are very friendly. Would go back to this resort if I could skip the first day of the room mishap. I would say that it is not mentioned anywhere that Punta Cana is on the Atlantic side and the water is not blue. It was dirty with seaweed and never blue. To get blue water you have to be on Carribean side. Overall we would go back!

Not exactly the luxury vacation I envisioned

Overall, my stay at the hotel was good! Service was good, and food was overall very good. My main criticisms: 1) the beach had a lot of seaweed and the area was small 2) the food was almost never hot; either cold or lukewarm 3) the room beds were small if 2 people had to share 4) the room bathroom needs upgrading; the water pressure in the shower was so weak, and I didn't like how there was no door or curtain to the shower so water came out on the floor easily 5) 12 mosquitoes in our hotel room during our 7 day stay; it was a huge inconvenience 6) when we checked in at the preferred club lounge, we were pushed hard to sign up for the welcome breakfast and orientation -- aka timeshare. we refused. they claimed they were not timeshare, but we saw the salespeople at the world cafe talking to people and essentially they're selling you the same thing and earn commission. everything else was fine. the service was overall excellent; only a few people at check-in or some waiters were not so friendly and helpful.

Not worth the money
MISTY C.
Jun 12 2018
I was thinking that preferred service was going to be something special. There were a few things that our party of 6 encountered that ruined our experience. Orlando- when we got to the resort he asked us to come to a presentation that we would be told was 90 minutes. That we could leave before the 90 minutes was up just donít tell anyone that he told us that we could leave. There was no way anyone couldíve left the meetings that they hold. He completely lied to us about everything. We stayed the 90 minutes because thatís all that you can do. We were given the ďbucksĒ to use for a beach dinner. The dinner was for our complete party. The food was mediocre at best. Orlando told our group that it would be $49 total and that the bucks would cover it. Which at check out we were informed of the true cost. At 4:30am and you have to leave at 4:50 am for your flight you pay $49 per couple three times. Then we were given a coupon book and were told we could use it at the spa for any service. Another lie when we went to pay for four services at the spa. Spa- when I made the appointments for my daughter and I at the spa I told the receptionist I wanted two 25 minutes massages and the feet fish. When my daughter and I got to our appointment we were told our coupons couldnít be used at all. I was completely upset with the amount of money we were already spending for the resort and services and then told we couldnít use a $10 coupon. After a great massage we were taken downstairs and told we could swim in the spa pools. Unfortunately no one told us to bring our suits to the appointment. At the end of our appointment the receptionist told me she wanted to give us a 10% discount which was nice. Bars- the swim up bar was great in the big pool and the service for the most part was good. The waiters would come up and get orders but then they would not bring you a drink after waiting for one for over an hour. At this point our party would go get our own drinks. The drinks were watered down but for all inclusive what can you expect. Beach- the pictures online were beautiful unfortunately nothing about the beaches are like the pictures. The seaweed is so bad that you canít swim in it. The color of the water near the resort are dark and not the beautiful turquoise. Preferred- when we got to the resort I informed two people in the preferred room that the 31st was my husbands birthday and I wanted to have a small cake or something for him. I was told no problem it would come on the day of his birthday in the afternoon amenities. We were never given a cake or anything else for his special day from the preferred people. Whatís the point of preferred? The one day I request something and actually I asked twice to make sure that it would happen. Unfortunately the preferred service wasnít worth it. Restaurants- we were told by our travel agent that we could go into any restaurant as dress casual. The men could wear knee length khaki pants and dress shirts. The women could wear dresses. When we got there we were told that wasnít true. So that meant we could only eat at two restaurants. That was a huge let down. The one great part of the restaurant The Worlds restaurant was our waiter Junior was amazing. When we went to the cafe on my husbands birthday I asked Junior if he could do something during dinner for his birthday. He told me not to worry about it he would take care of it. After eating he and a few workers came out and sang happy birthday to my husband with a small cake. If it wasnít for workers like him, my husbands special day wouldíve been ruined. Rooms- the two rooms on the 3rd floor were decent rooms the air conditioner didnít really work but I could get passed that. The room on the 1st floor was so completely disappointing. The first night there my daughter was bitten over ten times during the night as she slept. So the next day we go into her room and kill mosquitoes that night we killed over 20. So the next morning we go down to the preferred area and talk to receptionist. The lady told me that itís a tropical island and itís to be expected what did I want her to do. I was completely shocked by her response. I asked if she could send someone to spray the room. After 9:00pm that night someone knocks on the door with an can of bug spray. My mother in law who was also staying in that room told them she was in bed and they could come back during the day. While in the room my daughter got over 28 mosquito bites on her body. Thatís with her sleeping with a long sleeve shirt to help keep her arms covered during the night. I was told by a friend who stays in the Dream resorts that the resorts normally spray every day for mosquitoes. Why wasnít that done at ours? To think our party of six spent almost $10,000 US dollars to come to Dreams Punta Cana resort and we were disappointed. This trip was a graduation gift for my daughter for graduating with honors and a 4.0 gpa. It was also for my husbands birthday and our anniversary. This was also the first time my mother in law has ever left the country. This was suppose to be an amazing trip and it wasnít.

Amazing but the seaweed
missmaddicakes, Saint Louis, Missouri

This hotel was amazing. The grounds were well kept, the food was pretty good and the drinks were great. The pools were awesome and there was so much to do. All the staff is very concerned about making your stay great and everyone was so nice. Two complaints: the spa and the seaweed. My mom and i got massages and she said it was the best massage she has ever gotten. I on the other hand wish I could remember the name of the woman that gave me mine. I got a 50 minute massage and for at least 20 of those minutes she sat next to me not touching me at all. She must have been on her phone or something because she didn’t do anything for quite a while. For the money I paid, I am extremely disappointed. The seaweed is horrible. I know there is nothing they can do about it, but I want to make sure people who are trying to plan a trip down here or can cancel can do that. It is so horrible right now, both me and my mother have been throwing up for days. Don’t get me wrong, the island is amazing, the hotel is amazing and please please please if you can come when this seaweed mess is over DO IT!

Thank you Luis Nieves!

We stayed at the Dreams Palm Beach in the beginning of July and came back last week. The resort was nice, however, there was a lot of seaweed at the beach and therefore, made the water unclear and murky. We did go on two excursions which were a blast. One of the excursions we went on included snorkeling and the water at that particular island was clear and an ombre blue. I believe we went to Seona Island after snorkeling and it was beautiful. Our second excursion was zip lining and "the blue hole" which is called Hayo Azul. This resort has a buffet and everyday that we went to the World Cafe, Luis Nieves was ALWAYS attentive, friendly and fun to talk to. Luis made our experience even better and if we ever come back, we hope to see him again. He is by far the best waiter this resort has and I hope he gets rewarded for how welcoming and friendly he is. We truly felt like he was our friend while we were in Punta Cana and shared with has that he has 2 young children, 5 years old and 2 years old. You can definitely tell that he's a people person and loves his job. Thank you Luis, we appreciate you! -Michael and Katie

We visited Dreams Palm Beach from 6/26 -7/03 and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The resort was great and the grounds are clean and nice. The pools were wonderful but the beach was not good due to the seaweed and not very clear water. The World Café (buffet) was really nice for breakfast and lunch. Every night we had dinner at different restaurants: Seaside Grill, Bordeaux, El Patio, Portofino and Himitsu (Japanese) were great. The "Coco Cafe" was the best place to drink coffee all day, we enjoyed it. The staff at this resort are the best, everyone is friendly and courteous. I want to say thank you to Belkis Robles in El Patio, Noemi Vargas in the World Cafe, Maria in the Portofino, Olvi Ortega In charge of the towels in the pool and Pedro Nunez at the Veranda bar. The Gym was great, my husband and I worked out daily. The entertainment team were friendly and all of the events are fun an entertaining. We enjoyed the Magic Show, 70/80s Show and the Dominican Show. We did the preferred package, however, it was not worth the money. But, I highly recommend the resort and would come back again.

Exelente!!!
