We spent a week at this resort and enjoyed ourselves very much. The room was clean and had nothing to complain about. The pool was fun and nice with great drink service and some fun activities going on. Dinners were mostly good and we especially liked the Italian for dinner.

Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana tried to book a sales pitch for a membership less than an hour after arriving. On our honeymoon!!! After arriving to our Preferred Club Jacuzzi Honeymoon Suite we noticed some issues with the age of the room. The light in the shower ceiling was falling down. There was so much caulk holding the small tiles together in the shower and around the glass. The stainless steel faucet in the tub was old, stained and scratched up and the jets would only work on a speed i'd like to call Holy Cow! Turning them on sprayed water all over the place outside the tub. The power kept going out in our building (building 4) when we were trying to get ready for dinner. Any time I asked for the concierge or butler service for anything I was turned away. For example...getting some sunscreen from a store that closed early for inventory and didn't reopen until after our zipline excursion was scheduled to leave the next morning and charging it to our room. Really? What is your service for then? They couldn't even put our name on a list for one of their restaurants. What did we spend the extra money for??? Food was amazing at SeaSide Grill. Pretty good at the World Cafe (wonderful desserts!) The Italian restaurant we were not impressed. The Japanese grill would have been perfect if they wouldn't have waaayyyy overcooked the meats. The service their was great in every restaurant. Seaweed was so bad we couldn't get in the water and the smell was pretty unpleasant. It's so hard to pick a place to go because there are just so many places and so many resorts. You live and you learn. We won't be back. If you do go to a resort in Punta Cana I highly recommend doing two excursions. The zipline down the mountain (amazing) and the Dolphin Discovery swimming with the dolphins (best experience) Hope this help someone.

The resort was absolutely beautiful, and the staff were so very kind and thoughtful. The food was decent, and the beach was amazing. Our only 2 complaints was the sea weed which was horrible and began to stink. The water was brown, and even though we do understand that the staff were not at fault we feel Apple should have notified us! We also had a problem with only Spanish speaking staff who could not understand us and so just had to deal with being misunderstood

We are writing to you to make you aware of some instances we have experienced at your property. We had booked your resort through Apple Vacations. We traveled with ease and when we arrived your property looked beautiful. However, our negative experience happened quickly as we tried checking in. We want to share some of our experiences with you. > > Check in... We waited over two hours for lunch at seaside grille while they were getting our room ready. There were about 15 total patrons in the restaurant. > > Once we got in the room, the remote didn’t work, clock didn’t work, phone didn’t work and we asked 4 times to get a new phone (still doesn’t work after 5 nights), toilet doesn’t flush and jacuzzi tub plug is broken > > Day 2: Willy with the concierge approached us. We thought he was there to help us but in the end he just wanted us to help him by sitting through a 90 minute presentation so he could make money. We spent about 30 minutes trying to help him but couldn’t take “being sold” Into something after the 3rd person tried to close us. When we left the meeting, Willy approached us again wondering why we left and we were honest with him. We are on our honeymoon, we don’t want to sit in a 90 minute meeting trying to be sold something. No one seamed to understand that we were there to try to relax and enjoy time together and in love. Everyone was so pushy and Willy only offered us the Honeymoon package if we sat through the 90 minute sale! The next day he approached us again and wanted us to go to another meeting for 20 minutes so he would get another promotion and for us to get a coupon. Not only did Willy try to up sell us but we were approached in the restaurants with food, wine and especially the lobster. We were constantly approached on the beach & pool side with parasailing, banana ride and lobsters. We can not believe how pushy and aggressive they were with sales. Not a relaxing environment at all! Very disappointed and will have to take a real honeymoon. > > Our house keeping... we made multiple phone calls to get the room cleaned and to obtain new towels. They would take our dirty towels in the morning but wouldn’t give us new towels until 7 or 8 at night. Many times we were trying to get ready for dinner and house keeping would want to clean the room (between 5-6pm). We felt like we had to beg to have the room straightened up and to receive more than 1 towel. > > Service... We noticed there are many staff members, however, they are not accommodating what so ever. At every bar, There would be 4-5 guys at the bar and we would have to interrupt there chit chat to ask for help. They do not offer anything without the customer having to force them to stop talking amongst themselves ....many of them are very short and rude with their responses. If they didn’t have water, I got several “no”. No other additional help or direction. We have been to many other all inclusive resorts, but never experienced suck a lack of accommodation. > > Sailing....To take out the sail NO ONE helped us! There were 8 staff and only 1 helping us so my husband had to help him get the boat in the water. The other 7 guys stood there watching us drag the boat in. Once we were in, It Took us 25 minutes to get past the seaweed (staff could see our trouble) and no one helped us. We were paddling with our hands to get through it and pulling ourselves with the floats. They SeaPro guys had the small boat there, but they were more interested is chatting. again, there were 8 staff members sitting around not helping. Once we cleared the seaweed, we sailed for less than 5 minutes and the boat with staff that should have offered help to start came out yelling at us to turn around and come Back in (time is up!). Even though they clearly saw us struggling to get our passed the seaweed, with no help. > > We attempted to try their services again the next day but with a kayak. My husband and I had to get all the gear while the staff literally sat there and watched us get in the water. The staff is clearly very reactive and not proactive. This is supposedly a 5 star resort with wonderful ratings but in our experience here we have been extremely disappointed. > > Honeymoon... We were told we would have special treatment, flowers, champagne, discounts on spa treatments, etc. Willy told us, if we take care of him he will take care of us. We shouldn’t have to “take care” of someone to get treated nicely on our honeymoon. Willy put a banner on our door and a Milky Way... and that’s it. (Must be bc we didn’t sit through the 90 min presentation)? Was not romantic. Again, we felt like we had to beg to be acknowledged. It was very sad. > > > Over all we are very disappointed with our stay in room 5109. We tipped over $350 over the course of 6 days, but we felt honored to just get a glad of water. The Spa was very nice and the service was great there. We hope you make changes to your staff for future guests and their experiences with you. As we mentioned before, we feel as if we wasted our time off of work to celebrate our love at this “resort”. We are very easy going people and have never complained to management until now (41 years).

Use Liberty Travel, Not Apple Vacations - Never Again!!
SARAH K.
Aug 15 2018
For the past 7 years, my husband and I have done an annual vacation. We've always done business with Liberty Travel, but a friend of ours recommend Apple. After our experience with Apple, our flight, hotel, and overall vacation experience - NEVER AGAIN. As we began planning our trip, I consulted with several Apple representatives, all of whom recommended Punta Cana. After much consideration, our family booked an all-inclusive package to Dreams Palm Beach. After booking, here’s a brief synapsis my family’s disappointing experiences with our Apple Vacation: 3 formal requests via phone were required in order to receive our travel documents. Our agent recommended Dreams Palm Beach because the water is beautiful and untouched by the recent hurricanes (which is also noted on Apple’s introductory recording); however, the water is disgusting! It’s a dark, murky brown and filled with seaweed. After speaking to the Apple representative at Dreams, she informed our family the conditions of the beach is a direct result of the hurricanes and if we wanted a beautiful beach we should travel to La Romana. After our disappointment with the beach and the recommendation of La Romana, I inquired about changing our hotel to Dreams La Romana. It took 2 days for the representative to consider this request. Upon consideration and after the Dreams Apple Agent consulted with a Dreams Agent within the states, I was informed we could make the transition; however, we’d be charged a $789 penalty, not including taxes. Additionally, we’d be responsible for our own transfers between resorts and to the airport for departure. Our room smelled like mold and mildew. Upon speaking with the Dreams Apple Agent, we were told “all rooms smell the same on the resort – it’s a result of having an older property!” The on-sight Apple Agent assisted in scheduling 2 excursions. The anticipated duration for one was 3 hours (actual excursion time was 5.5 hours) and the anticipated duration for another was 4 hours (actual excursion time was 7 hours). The extended times hindered ability to enjoy the pool, resort activities, and plan accordingly for our children (naps, meals, etc.). We never received any information regarding our transfer home. Wait – we did – 5 (Yes, 5!) minutes before our anticipated departure time. Long story short, NEVER AGAIN. If you are looking for an honest and positive experience, utilize a different agency and resort.

Staff and property are great, just one issue.
JOHN R.
Jul 30 2018
The only issue I had, and I know it isn’t exclusive to this property, was the ridiculous early hour that the pool lounge chairs get claimed by. I’m on vacation, I want to sleep in a little and have some breakfast. By the time I did that, all the pool chairs were “claimed”. I wound up with bad sunburn on my legs because I couldn’t get a shady spot by the pool or beach. The room was clean and comfortable, service was great, and the food was outstanding!

Glad we went, but...
Mark B, Toronto
Mon Nov 19 07:25:37 EST 2018
The resort was beautiful and for the most part well maintained. Beach was gorgeous and expansive. Seaweed was maintained as best as possible but expected wit5h location. They also did a good job of keeping the vendors from coming up to where people were seated, but allowed them to walk past in case anyone wanted to go down to them. One big thing that I hadn’t read about in any of my research is that in order to get your “coupons” for the resort credits you had to go back the first full day and get them but first go through a very lengthy sales pitch in their “Vacation Club”! All the restaurants and shops are in one area which is convenient but also makes that area very busy, noisy and crowded. Food/Restaurants were good. Not great. But good. If we had been there longer we might have been tired of the menus because they don’t change. There are no specials of the day. Which is surprising since being on the ocean I expected something like a fresh catch of the day. We never waited more than 15 minutes to be seated. Big issue is the noise in the restaurants is almost unbearable. Couldn’t hear each other talk at the table. The buffet restaurant was huge with a decent variety of food. Staff: Hit and miss. Some were fantastic, a lot looked miserable to be there. Most spoke little English, enough to order drinks and food. We did have fantastic pool side service at the preferred pool. Speaking of “preferred”. It did give us 2 pools (one adult only) each having a concierge room, and a private beach-side restaurant. But other than that I wouldn’t pay too much more to upgrade. The booze is “top shelf” although we watched them refill a top shelf bottle from a not so "top shelf" bottle. And the service wasn’t any better. Room service did basics and we never had turn down service at night. So no towel animals! Our last full day we went back to the room at 3:30 to cool off and rest before dinner and our room hadn’t been cleaned yet. I caught her walking away in the hall and she spoke enough English to understand we wanted the room cleaned. We were also supposed to have an upgraded . One thing we personally did not like is that it’s a huge wedding destination resort. So there were a lot of big wedding groups. 2 days we had the private pool taken over by wedding parties and it turned into a party pool. For some people it might be a good thing. We just wanted to relax and we had to leave the pool the last day because of the group. And they took over some restaurants at night as well. Another big issue I had was room maintenance. Our AC never got below 24.5 degrees Celsius (about 75 degrees). Was a little uncomfortable to sleep. I mentioned it to the concierge who said they would have maintenance look at it but it was never resolved. Also our toilet would run and not flush and I would have to remove the tank lid and adjust the tank plunger to seal it and have water fill again. I mentioned it to them again and again nothing was done. So, I was glad we went, because even with it's flaws a few days at an all-inclusive was worth the issues. But we would not return and instead would try another resort.

Beautiful resort, very friendly staff , unfortunatly the food was sub par, out of 52 people in the group over half at some point or other contracted diahreeah and vomiting . For me personally it was 4 days of heaven and 3 days of pure hell with stomach problems.over 90%of the seating area in the lobby bar are low slung chairs , great if your young and limber, but not so if your older and with mobility issues. I counted 6 chairs of a normal height at the reception, lobby bar area that were never empty and in quite a lot of demand !

My wife and I went there for a 6 day vacation. We had stayed at a Dream La Romana before. This property we older but fairly well maintained. The service was good but the drinks were watered dawn and the high end liquor was clearly refilled with low grade local booze. I tried several gins and they all tasted the same. Same for the Vodka and even the Jack Daniels. The plus, the food was good and there was plenty. The lines short and the service above average. The biggest complaint was they tried to make it sound like a welcome breakfast was mandatory but it turned into a 1.5 hour hard sell on a time share speech. Super high pressure from the lobby staff to attend. Even after we explained we were not interested and after we told them I was military they tried to get me to lie and say I was not military. Seems that there is a military exception to time Share contracts. So they asked me to lie to the salesman and say I wasn’t military so the lobby personnel would still get credit for pressing us into the 1.5 hours at best sales speech. We declined at least 15 times before they gave us our passports back and let us go and enjoy our vacation. On a high not the service staff was friendly and the food was good. I recommed tipping the maid and bar tender the first day and you will get exceptional service after that.

Enjoyable trip

Just returned from a week at Dreams Palm Beach. Here are our thoughts of the property. Pros • The resort is of medium size and well layout. No need for cart or long walk to get around. • Grounds are lovely and well kept. • Room is clean and of good size. Any issues with the room are dealt with immediately. • Lots of chairs and sun shades at the pool and the beach. No need to get up early to get a spot. • Coco café is a lovely spot to have coffee, tea and pastries from 6 am and throughout the day. • Bottled water is readily available throughout the resort, no charge. Cons • No toilet paper is to be deposited in the toilet. It must be placed in the waste basket beside the toilet. This is our biggest issue with the place. • Although you are not going to go hungry at this resort. Food quality needs to be improved. Steaks and roast beef are so tough that you can hardly cut it let alone chewing it. Seafood consists of two types of fish, mussels and squid. • Both the red and white wine is barely drinkable. This is personal opinion so take it with a grain of salt. • Evening entertainment is very lacking. The nightly shows are loud and not very entertaining. Upgrading to the Preferred Section is only needed if you are a drinker and want true top shelf liquors and liqueurs. Having access to Seaside Grill for breakfast and lunch is overrated. You can do better at the buffet. The main pool is way better than the two small pools in the Preferred section. There is no difference in service at the Preferred beach area from the regular beach area. Both has plenty of chairs, shades and drinks service. We will consider returning here when we can catch a good price for the package.

We left our husbands at home and just returned from a girlfriends getaway. The Resort staff go out of their way to help, are very courteous and don’t make the guests feel a tip is required.. Our express preferred check in went ok. Our room was not ready so we went to lunch at the buffet. The hotel and everything is perfectly fine and there is nothing really wrong here. It is the little things that make the big difference between a good hotel vs a great one. If you have never been to one before, this would be perfect as there is nothing to compare it. The adults only pool is wonderful..The amenities in the preferred club were lovely and appreciated. Our room was upgraded to an oceanfront room in the preferred building #5 and we had a beautiful ocean view.( I was a returning guest) Maid service was ok. Turn down service was missed 1 night, that was ok, however it was a service we paid for. More importantly our bathroom supplies, shampoo, shower gel, were never replenished and I had to look for maid in hallway to have them replaced. The beach was lovely. The seaweed was the work of Mother Nature that no one had any control over. The grounds crew worked very hard to clear it off the beach and once in the water after about 5-6 feet from shore it was wonderful, not very rough and the temperature was perfect. The real issue for me was the food. Mediocre at best. In my previous visit the buffet was great in terms of selection and quality.now the Food was never hot, mostly lukewarm. The restaurants were ok. The seafood restaurant had more steak choices than seafood choices. We had alot of fun at the Japanese restaurant. Our cook was great! The French restaurant was a disappointment We enjoyed the Italian restaurant. On 3 different occasions I had gone to bars at various times, early evenings, and each time they were out of mixes (passion fruit juice,etc) and therefore couldn’t have my drink of choice, cocoloco, you and me etc. All in all the resort is fine however I’m not so sure that I would return in the future.
