Amazing honeymoon destination
Georgina W,

We had been recommended this hotel by 2 sets of people from at home and it did not disappoint, I would definitely recommend it! The hotel was an easy 50 minutes (ish) transfer from the airport and we were met with a glass of fizz while we checked it, this was a quick process and we were shown to your room. We stayed in block 5 which was a preferred club room but we chose not to upgrade to the preferred services, we didn't feel we needed to as there's so much available anyway. The room was spacious and clean with lots of storage, and a huge bed. We couldn't get the safety box to work initially but we used the phone in the room to ring reception and someone came to sort it straight away. Throughout our stay all the staff were so friendly and helpful, from reception and concierge to the brilliant bar and restaurant staff, they work so hard to make everything just right for you. Great entertainment staff who are friendly and entertaining but don't bully you in to joining in. We did particularly love the American Super Bowl showing with full themed area on the beach, big screens, themed food and drinks, excellent production from the staff! Each day there was a different theme party or show, a lunch time BBQ, even a daily fruit boat! Our favourite eating & drinking spots were: The coco cafe for a hot or cold cappuccino royale, Himitsu Japanese, Jungle Dominican beach restaurant and Bordeaux restaurant for food and atmosphere. If you're open to trying things out then you'll enjoy sampling the ranges available but there really is something for everyone. The pool side Pizza oven and barefoot beach grill for amazing burgers were casual favourites for lunch, or try the seaside grill for a nice sit down meal. Branded spirits, good lager, fresh cocktails and Fizz were available all day. I visited the spa for a full body massage which was just gorgeous; left feeling extremely relaxed, I could have used the outdoor garden facilities but chose to go back to my sun bed. I would recommend a visit for a thorough pamper. If you are there to enjoy your holiday, relax, and aren't in a rush to get your drink poured first, or keep the same sun bed everyday by the pool then this place is spot on. These are just a handful of our points, but I'd say try it for yourself... Thank you for an amazing honeymoon that we won't forget!

Lots of fun on the beach.

PROS: Nice beach Calm clear water (easy for swimming / snorkeling) Free use of paddleboards, kayaks, and sail boats CONS: Rooms are rather basic. One hour+ from Punta Cana airport. OTHER: Food was average. Enjoyed seafood restaurant, less impressed with Asian. Pizza was good, but not too many other items in buffet that really impressed. Overall - had a great time. Good for an active vacation with friends - less certain for something like a honeymoon or anniversary.

Great Resort, Best Entertainment Staff, Lovely Beach!!!

My wife, 2 year old daughter, and I visited Dreams La Romana on Feb 5 – Feb 12. We have stayed with Secrets and Dreams Resorts a few times before and we are extremely happy with this Resort brand. The resort entertainment staff and activities, the gorgeous property and beach would make me want to stay here again. It was quieter on the beach than the Dreams Punta Cana, Palm Beach, since there are fewer resorts in this part of the Dominican Republic. The entertainment staff at this resort will actively get people to play games, to try exercise classes or partake in any of the countless activities offered during that day. I love that the staff are experienced enough not to pester people to play a game but rather ask in a friendly fun manner at just the right time. I also liked that if you did play a game you would be rewarded with “Dreams Money” that could be used later on for the Dreams auction. A few entertainment and other highlights, On Superbowl Sunday the resort put on a MASSIVE Supebowl party on the beach, complete with a giant screen tv, snacks galore (wings, popcorn, ribs, crepes, burgers, onion rings and much much more), and all the entertainment staff dressed-up as NFL players and cheerleaders. What an incredible night. We had beautiful photos taken with Adventure Photos. The session was free and we only were charged for the ones we wanted to buy. Great fitness classes offered during the week – pilates and barre class. The instructor was great and I loved taking the class on the beach! The exercise room had a good selection of cardio, weights and it did have a full-time person in the room to help. There was also Zumba, Yoga and another class held during the week but I did not attend these classes and everyone looked like they were having a wonderful time. The main pool had a fun inflatable climbing pyramid for kids only. The beach had a water trampoline. The kids really seemed to enjoy pyramid and trampoline. There was also a kid’s only foam party at the kids’ pool. Each day there was a boat on the beach by the grill that served fresh fruit (pineapple, melon, etc) on a stick. They cut the fruit fresh right in front of you and there was always a short lineup. Delicious! I have never been disappointed staying at a Dreams resort. I always find the staff to be helpful, the properties to be gorgeous and well maintained and the food to be good. I would stay here again in a heartbeat – particularly because of the entertainment staff and beach.

We had a great time on our vacation to the Dominican Republic. I would like to thank Mario Maroles for his great service at the poolside swimup bar. He did an excellent job taking care of our group. We enjoyed his hospitality vey much.

Great vacation and experiance

Spent a week from February 4 - 11th and overall was a great trip. The staff, food and amenities combined make for a memorable vacation. I will break up my review in sections for easier read. Please note we had the standard accommodations, not the preferred club experience Location: 15 minute shuttle from the La Romana airport, easy and short drive. The resort itself is 1 km off the main road surrounded by forests, making it very private with no resorts beside it. Hence, no annoying wristbands! Accommodations: the resort is split up into 8 different buildings with 3 floors. The rooms are very modern, with a very comfy bed and the bathroom had a spacious shower. If you forgot all your toiletries, you would not have to worry since the bathroom has everything you would need, including sunscreen! the room had a stocked bar fridge and a balcony. In a resort style vacation I do not put much importance on the room since we basically just slept there and left for the whole day, this room was impressive. Staff: Super friendly and would go that extra bit to make your vacation better. Bernice and Louis Daniel had top notch service for the bar during the day; model employees in my opinion. As for tips, logic dictates that if you tip you do get better service. In a country where the salary is $120 USD a month, $5 goes a long way to provide for their families. Never understood why people get offended if they do not get served first over someone who tips. Get off your wallet once and a while, tip $1 here and there. Overall, the staff on the entire resort were friendly and I am so glad the entertainment staff were not pushy Food: really good. I should state that I am not the worlds pickiest eater but some of the people I talked to were and said they loved the food. During the day there is the buffet, beach grills, pizza, hot dogs, hamburger. And if that doesnt please you, you can order room service to your room. All included, which is really nice if you want to order breakfast in bed. All the a la carte restaurants do not require reservations but make sure to go before 7:30, otherwise you may have to wait a bit for a table. Some of the ones with the best food (Italian) require men to wear pants and shoes. So bring a pair with you, it is worth it for the food. Beach/Pool: The infinity pool was a great area to spend the day. The beach was very popular as well. You will always find a chair but we did see people throwing items of clothing the night before to reserve the best ones. Loved that you did not need a slip for the towels and could take as many as you wanted. The beach was taken care of and I could say that as well of the resort grounds, all the walkways were swept everyday and the lawns cut. They take really care of the landscape. Only downside is the beach is not that long to walk, ends off with a rocked peninsula. But it is private beach, so no other resorts to share with.
