Our Wedding
Paul S, Birmingham, United Kingdom
Fri Apr 28 04:50:26 EDT 2017
After hours and hours researching hotels for our wedding we finally decided on Dreams Punta Cana and what a great hotel we picked. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special. As we were getting married here, me and my partner were upgraded to a suite and also had the added benefit of the perferred club. Our room was big and had a jucuzzi on the balcony which over looked the pond with the flamingos, i have nothing bad to say about the room as it was lovely and clean, yes there may have been a couple of chips in the marble by the sinks but really nothing to complain about, i mean who spends there days in a room when u have beautiful blue sky and an amazing swimming pool and beach to enjoy..... Our wedding was sooooo perfect and our wedding planner Paola Urena was fantastic, we spent a year going back and forth with emails and discussing what we would like and Paola always responded so quickly When we finally met all my worries went away, i put full trust in Paola and i was right to do so, she handled everything brilliantly and the day went without a hitch, i can not recommend her enough. The photography by adventure photos was also brilliant and im so happy with our wedding album. We had our ceremony at the gazebo which is beautiful and then had our cocktail hour at the bordeoux terrace which was also our venue for the reception, again everything was perfect, i brought my own decorations which Paola took care of and she set up our reception beautifully. The bordeoux terrace had a lovely view looking out to the ocean and the waiters who were working the night of our wedding were fantastic, not one guest ever went without a drink or had to wait to be served so a big thank you to all the staff, u all work so hard. The hotel is lovely and i think its the perfect size, we were travelling with a group of 25 and the size of the hotel meant that if some of our group wanted some time to there selves then they could just go off to another area of the hotel and have it but then it was small enough to always find each other if needed. All in all we had an amazing experience and i cant fault the staff as they work so hard to make sure your having the best time. Big thumbs up to Dreams Punta Cana it will always have a special place in my heart and i hope we will visit this hotel again.

Excellent, bar one minor incident.

I will condense this into an easy readable high info review. The resort is excellent, the staff work tirelessly on all levels to accommodate you. The food is great in all the restaurants and the beach burger bar is brilliant as is the pizza bar. The drinks are all good, cocktails beers etc. Chocolate martinis were a favourite. Some people will find negatives with anything, but on the whole I'd come here again. Yes it may be a little tired in places and yes it may not live up to 5 star expectations, but we had a great time. Also if your that way inclined the local wildlife is interesting. Most morning I found snakes and lizards in the large grass scrubland next to the hotel. Humming birds are common in the day and if you look in the flood lights at night large bats can be seen feeding on the flying insects. Our "incident" We had money stolen from our room. Around 100USD. It was partially out fault for not having it in the safe. We first noticed when we realised a drawer had been disturbed, and upon closer inspection realised money had been taken. We reported it to hotel management but refused to let this spoil our stay. We left a note in Spanish saying "we know you've stolen from us" in our room. Coincidentally the service staff and cleaners changed after we reported it. Please don't let this put you off. The way I see it is this, we probably earn more in an hour than they do in a week, so If they've been desperate for cash then I've helped someone. The resort is excellent!

I enjoyed my stay. The property was beautiful and the staff friendly. Food was delicious. Cons: Pool closed at 6pm No public hot tubs Restaurants closed between meals Housekeeping only cleaned our room once. (5 days/4 night stay) However I only put out the "clean room" sign on day 3 and 4. Day 3 they did not clean the room in the span of 4 hours the sign was out. I even asked a lady with a cart in the hallway for towels but she didn't give me any. I enjoyed the daily entertainment, the beach and all the pools.

Not as good as last time

We did the deal of fortune through Cheap Caribbean and got dreams punta Cana resort and spa. Great savings using deal of fortune but you don't know what you get until a week before. We found out it was dreams and we have been before so knew what to expect. However, I'm not sure what changed but it was not the same. The entertainment team favors some people over others. As an example they seem to have a lot of fun dancing with the young pretty girls yet when dancing with the older woman it seemed forced. Food was pretty good. Rooms are VERY dated. Probably would not go back as I've been to other Dominican resorts that were much better. If you have booked already you will have a good time but there are better options. One more thing is the last time we were here it was very lively and fun. A little boring this time. Not sure if was a change in staff but we make the best of wherever we go.

We had a beautiful beach wedding. Our wedding coordinator was very nice and attentive. The resort and pool is gorgeous. There are a lot of nice workers that we made friends with. Meiry was our favorite! Luis is a part of the entertainment group and was very good at including our family in the events. I was very happy with the food and the wedding cake they provided was delicious. We definitely will be coming back in the future. The beach was very nice, and they had great nonmotor water sports.
