Best Vacation Ever
melstallard, Richmond, Virginia
Thu Jun 23 11:48:38 EDT 2016
Just got back from an amazing trip at Dreams La Romana. Our group of six adults opted for the Preferred Club Adults Only and it was well worth the upgrade. Our suites included the butler service and words can't describe the level of care we received from Danny D and Lorrina (hope spelling is correct). From drinks on the beach to planning special meals, all of our needs were met by two extremely conscientious individuals who made our group feel like we were the only guests at the resort. Two special servers assisted us during our two private meals....Angel and Franklin, both were exceptional and charming. The food, setting and service exceeding everyone's expectations. Both meals were set near the sea and the backdrops were stunning. Lobster and grouper were two of the standouts.....best we ever had! Every meal was exceptional and no one in our group had a bad dish. Oceana's was incredible, definitely go for the grouper. Each meal we were greeted with a welcome drink, sometimes champagne and a selection of appetizers from the menu. As for uncomplimentary reviews I have seen on travel sites, I cannot relate whatsoever. We never encountered a rude employee, a distasteful dish or "watered" down drinks. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating. The bartenders made us whatever we requested and I believe we created a new drink while we were there ;) We appreciated the care and time that was taken during our meals. We were never rushed and the flow was relaxing and enjoyable, it is a vacation and should be savored. The grounds are immaculate and the turquoise and aqua color of the water is breathtaking. Our photos look like postcards. Our rooms were well kept everyday and the honeymoon suite was beautiful and spacious. Our view overlooked the preferred adult pool right above the preferred club lounge. A special mention to Julissa in the spa. My Swedish massage was so relaxing that I scheduled a deep tissue the next day with her. Our entire group took advantage of the spa with individuals commenting it was their best massage ever. The spa is set in a tranquil setting and you can hear the tropical birds outside. Hands down this was the most relaxing vacation I have ever taken. We had two couples celebrating anniversaries and my husband was just recovering from colon cancer. The service from the butlers, waitstaff, bartenders, housekeeping, etc made this trip amazing and so memorable. Generally the best part of a vacation is the planning and the anticipation. Not with Dreams, it was the actual vacation! We didn't want to leave and I can't wait for a return visit. More>

A DREAM HOLIDAY
stuart d, Cardiff, United Kingdom
Thu Jun 23 06:50:05 EDT 2016
My wife and I have just returned from Dreams Resort & Spa (21/06/16) to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This resort exceeded our expectations. We upgraded our room and on arrival were met by the concierge who took us, and our luggage, to the Preferred Club accommodation. We were met by 2 lovely ladies in the Preferred Club concierge area and were very helpful throughout our stay The room was lovely and the bed so comfortable, overlooking the pool area. (There's a coffee maker in the room advise taking a travel kettle if your a tea drinker) That evening we went to Olio's restaurant (Which was our favourite). The staff were really friendly and the reception we had from 2 of the waiters, Luis, Edward and the manager, Henry were amazing. They made us feel that we had been there for weeks. Each morning we went for breakfast at the Preferred Club area and the waiter there, ADON, was really helpful, friendly and the best of them all. He looked after us well. My wife and I felt like we were VIP's. The staff always went out of their way to make sure our holiday went perfect, which it did. Everywhere we went in the hotel was spotless and we continually saw the staff cleaning any mess all day long, even a cleaner swept the pathway of sand everyday leading to and from the beach. The restaurants were excellent and the food was out of this world. We had a private beach, which was segregated from other holiday makers, and we were impressed when anyone who had not upgraded to the Preferred Club was challenged by security and moved on. I must mention the waitress on the beach who was fantastic, her name was Diana. The area we were at was an adults only area and again anyone who entered this area was moved out by security. Our room was cleaned everyday and in the evening the house keepers would come in and prepare the bed whilst we were out. On the day of our anniversary there was a banner placed on the door, a fruit and cheese platter was sent to the room together with a bottle of champagne. Take note, that if you visit the French and Italian restaurant men have to wear long trousers. We met a couple from Essex, who have travelled all over the Caribbean and have returned to Dreams for the 4th time. (I think that says it all). We have just booked to return again next year already. I would like to thank all the staff for making our dream a dream. More>

Great place, great stay, food and staff 5* Beach on doorstep with clean rooms Perfect 'hotel' holiday. Found the excursions pricey but in comparison to Thailand travels anything is going to feel pricey!!! I certainly wouldn't bother upgrading to preferred as you are practically on the same holiday as preferred guests and seems 'in my opinion' a little daft they even call it preferred. Loved it More>

All-inclusive style

This term has a whole new meaning to me since being at this hotel. I'll explain in a sec. This resort is lovely! The outdoor and indoor areas (most of them, except for the rooms) are beautiful! You can explore and find some breathtaking -not so well known- spots for pictures and romance. The staff is very friendly, they're concerned about you feeling comfortable which is great and they're nice, funny, goofy and relaxed people (just the way Dominicans are). Some of the downsides for me is the reason why I'm titling this "all-inclusive style". This is a bad type of all-inclusive, I had never tasted such bad quality drinks and had worse food on a resort. Even though the staff at the different restaurants tried their best to please guests, the food and drinks are REALLY bad quality and that's something they should definitely improve considering the price we're paying. Which is also another thing I don't agree with. You're charged like it's a 5 stars hotel and it's all over their page but once you get there... 5 stars seems like a lot. Another thing I didn't enjoy, was the fact that once we got there, they told us we had to pay extra if we wanted better drinks, have access to certain pools or get a remodeled room. Not fair since this is not noticed beforehand and if I wanted to pay extra I'd have chosen a hotel, not an all-inclusive resort. The beach is AH-mazing. The water is so clear you can see some beautiful fish swimming around. They can get reaaaally close to you. So if you like the idea, bring your snorkel equipment! If you're used to staying at really nice hotels and you care about rooms/bathrooms/cleanliness/quality you should probably skip this one. If on the other hand, you're the "I'm not even gonna spend time in my room" type of person, this should be a good option for you. It's a great resort for families with kids, teens or young adults and also for friends who want to have fun. They have a list of paid activities to choose from that are pretty fun but definitely expensive, so be prepared. Overall, I enjoyed my time here and I loved what I got to do as well as the staff. The rooms, food, drinks and price, not so much! More>
