New Experience in old place
mtsekhansky, New Haven, Connecticut

Second time in Dreams Dominicus. Year ago was a lot of problems, but probably management hired some Magic Man. All work, food is good, service without problem. Big thank you to my new friends Mr. Gerzain Macossay (Food Manager), Mr. Salvio Beltran (Chef Executive). The right people on right place. Ready to help any guest. From waiters I would like tell thank you to Mr. Danny Moreno. The my room all time was clean. Some problem: 1. Need to change management in Asian restaurant. The people has no real information about Asian food. 2. Need return selection of alcohol to last year. This year was some problems. 3. Need replace small umbrellas in the beach area. This is not umbrellas - this is name only. The standard umbrellas installed in privilege area only. 4. Where is Manuela?

Just Ok

Visited the hotel with my family from Nov 10-17. I would definitely not rate this hotel a 4.5 star, 3.5 or 4 at best. The hotel itself is really nice, its still new, very clean modern and the grounds are well taken care of. The rooms are nice very spacious and clean, although we had to call in to request our room to be cleaned and to give us fresh towels, and this was after 4pm on two separate occasions. The food was good not great. After a few days I got sick of the food and ended up eating soup and bread for the rest of the trip. My mother got pretty sick and spent one whole day on the toilet, my 3 year old son was vomiting for one day as well...not sure if it was the food or something else. The pools are nice the beach was ok. The water is warm but was pretty rough with a few large rocks in the water. I travel to Cuba very often and of course there is no comparison here. Now what makes me rate this hotel a 3.5 star is their service. Don’t get me wrong some staff were very nice pleasant and helpful, but overall the staff look like they don’t want to be there. Most miserable bartenders I have ever seen especially in the main pool. Not sure why at the buffet they have one person making omelettes and running back and forth to the other station trying to make crepes? It resulted in my crepes being burned and the other persons omelette over cooked. There should be one person at every station like at every other hotel that I have been to. The waiters are quick to refill your drink but take forever to take away your plate. The check in was pretty brutal as well, they take so long, they make you fill out forms for every single person that you are traveling with, they ask you for your address and etc...not sure why they would need your address back home. And after all that at 3:30 our rooms were still not ready. We arrived at the hotel at 1:00. I got this trip for a really good price so I don’t feel so bad, we still had a good time and enjoyed our vacation but I will not return. I would recommend this hotel only if there is a really good deal on it and only to someone who does not care about getting good service. This hotel has lots of potential to be great but the management is obviously not taking these reviews seriously as a lot of people complain about the exact same thing which is POOR SERVICE...I have been reading reviews about this hotel since August because that’s when I booked our trip and obviously there has yet to be any improvement.

Beautiful property ruined by lazy staff

The good news is the beach, pools, and hotel rooms are excellent. The bad news is all the staff and food surrounding you ruin the experience. A side note - I am a UVC member and this is my 4th stay at one of their resorts. All the other have been fantastic. 95% of the staff are lazy and resent you staying at the property. They will nod their head when you ask for service and then walk away and never return again. They will NEVER approach you without you physically getting their attention. We did find one or two (David from Reception and Marcus from the Buffett) that were great. Most importantly - the food is bad. We love all-inclusive resorts but the food has got to be edible. The restaurants here were so bad we ended up leaving the resort on multiple occasions just to get a good meal. The breakfast and lunch buffet is tolerable but so far below other Dreams/Secrets resorts that it is saddening to think what we could have been eating had we chosen another property. Dinners at the restaurants are laughable. Everything from the poor quality ingredients to the waitstaff who have no idea to create a good dining experience.

Nice beach, lack of service.

Pro's: new spacious rooms, excellent explorer center for kids, my daughter absolutely loved it. Girls who work there made sure kids had fun, face painting, balloon and ice cream parties. My daughter didn't want to leave the place and wanted to return there every day. Coco Cafe is very nice with delicious coffee and variety of sweets. Lobby bar has friendly staff, delicious coffee and decent drinks compared to other bars at the resort. Enjoyed crepes station during breakfast and dinner, paella at the beach, fruit station at the beach and preferred bar at the beach, upgrade cost to preferred is ridiculous since it hardly has any perks. Cons: filthy rooms, plumbing issues, food needs improvement and huge lack of service make the stay unpleasant. On multiple occasions came to the buffet and there were no plates out, had to ask for plates and silverware, not only we had to ask for plates but we had to ask for plates in Spanish since nobody understood English, cooks at the stations don't understand a word of English when you are trying to make some adjustments to the order. A lot of times at the buffet servers will be passing your table and not pour a drop of water in your empty glasses or offer drinks and when you finally catch their attention and order drinks it got there by the time we finished with your food, most of the time it happened during breakfast. Very limited breakfast buffet, most of the stuff has no taste or horrible taste, even omelette tastes awful. Restaurants are a joke, food is even worse than in the buffet. If management will brush up on their customer service skills and and improve quality of food it will be a great place to stay, since beach is amazing and grounds are pretty!

Not a 4 star, save your money

Paid for preferred but there was nothing preferred about the experience. We were never once treated any different for being preferred. They did have a bar and beach that were supposed to be preferred only but anyone could go there. Worst drinks I have ever had. They poured their nasty well vodka in the absolute, grey goose and sky bottles. We could never get them to open a new bottle, they always would maybe run and get an "open" bottle from another bar. . I drink vodka tonic and it was very obvious what they were doing, the bartender was even tasting the vodka to try and help find the premium brands, we ended up demanding small bottles of absolute and mixed our own. They also were never able to make a mojito due to always being out of mint at the preferred bar. They also touted that they had Coors light which is very low gluten and the only beer my wife can drink. They ran out every day, I think they may have brought in only a 6 ok per day as we never were able to get more than 2 a day. Tried to get coffe from the preferred bar one morning and the machine was broken. Employees don't speak much English but were nice, the massages were awesome, spa itself was ok, but the staff was really good. With the exception of the Tepanyanki, Food was not to great and the service was very slow. They only restocked mini bar items such as snacks and Coke if you asked, they did put water in the rooms each day. Very, very disappointed inthis resort and cannot believe that they are messing with the alcohol quality after what has been discovered in Mexico.
