We just returned from our third trip to Dreams La Romana and there will be many more to come. Upon arrival they welcome you home and that's what it is for us. Our bell boy Armando assisted us with our luggage,took us to our room and made us feel welcome. All of the staff upon arrival work hard to accomodate any requests. We noticed many more families with small children this time and it was wonderful to see the kids playing and having fun. The entertainment team is fantastic and even though my wife and I just like to relax on the beach it's a blast to watch the fun. Special thanks to our beach waitress and Dominican Sister Elizabeth who always made sure we had a cold drink in our hand and is such a pleasure to talk with. Dreams La Romana has stepped things up again since our last visit.The wifi is now free and worked well. The staff is so friendly and all seem to speak good english, french or spanish which helps as our spanish is limited. The food was fantastic and we enjoyed lunch on the beach which in addition to the great burgers from the Barefoot Grill now includes a variety of choices set up daily. Many of the furnishings around the property have been updated and we thought there were more lounges on the beach. We stayed in building number two and the room was great. Our maid Santa did an excellent job cleaning our room and everything was in good condition. Very quiet at night and we had no trouble sleeping. We would like to wish all the staff our compliments and can't wait to return.

We just returned from a 7 night stay at Dreams La Romana. We stayed at Dreams La Romana last year and had a great time. So we didn't hesitate to book a second trip for this year. We were pleasantly surprised that this year's trip was even better than the last. Both times we stayed at the preferred club, and found it well worth the value. My girls loved visiting the preferred club for snacks in the afternoon, and we all found the preferred family pool very relaxing. The food and staff were amazing last year, but definitely a notch higher this year. The staff at Oceana made us feel particularly special by surprising us with special appetizers they thought we would enjoy. We opted for the butler service this year, and do not regret it. Joel, Edward and Iris looked after our family well, made sure that we were always taken care of and surprised us with the little extras (buckets of beer, fruit and snack platters, etc) They also made sure that the restaurants were informed of our daughters' nut allergies. Honestly, I could not say a bad word about anyone working at the resort. They all work tirelessly to make sure all the guest have a good time. But I do want to give a special mention to: Riberto at the Seaside Grill - Victor, Chester, Moises, Marcia and Katherine at the preferred club - Bernice at the preferred club pool bar - tall Edward who greeted us warmly on arrival and departure - Oliver at Oceana - Angela, Anjelica and Valeri from the Explorer's Club - Ruby from the spa. And finally Paola, the e-concierge was great at answering my questions and able to fulfill our request of a ground floor room by the pool which was perfect for our family. The grounds are beautiful, clean and impeccably kept as are the pools. The beach and water are beautiful. This year, the beach seemed even cleaner... what little seaweed we saw last year was non-existent this year. The mini bar was always well stocked, our housekeeper kept our room clean and comfortable. If I had to make a criticism it would be that the rooms could use a sprucing... in particular the showers. But since we don't much time in the rooms, it's not a huge deal to us. I would highly recommend this resort. We will be back next year.

We have stayed in Punta Cana before but I now know I prefer the La Romana vibe and region over Punta Cana without a doubt. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and our first impressions from Ferbes the bell boy and Katherine in the Preferred Club were excellent. My sister and I stayed for five nights to celebrate her birthday. Katherine noted this when we were checking in and really made my sister feel special. They placed a special happy birthday banner on our door and we returned to our room on the second day to champagne and some beautiful birthday sweet treats. It really was a nice touch. I booked a gardenview preferred room but we ended up with a lovely view of the pool and ocean in the family preferred section. We enjoyed taking advantage of Olio at lunchtime followed by some quiet R&R by the adult-only preferred pool. It was truly a relaxing experience at the adult-only pool but we otherwise spent most of our time on the beach. The beach area is beautiful but it does seem that the beach gets crowded quickly. I was glad that we had preferred status so we had a dedicated area of the beach that clearly did not seem nearly as crowded as the other areas. We really enjoyed our stay and I believe the staff is what makes this place so special. I would return to this resort with my family in a heartbeat. Many thanks to the staff of Dreams La Romana for a wonderful stay!

One of the strengths of this resort is the wait staff and maid service. We especially liked the service that our waiter Lappost provided throughout the week. He always made sure we were taken care of promptly when we sat in his area of the restaurant.

We return to this Hotel Year on Year. The complex is extremely well maintained and the staff are always friendly and attentive. Berkis, Yubelkis, Lapposte, Edith, Manuel and Chester are a few of the Staff who make the Holiday a great experience. It was sad this year that Benjamin left the resort during our stay, he was a brilliant member of staff who always enhanced the service in the restaurants he worked in
