Beautiful resort

I spent a week here in February of this year and loved it. The grounds are immaculately maintained, the food at the buffet, the restaurants, and cafés was excellent, and the beach was clean and only a couple minutes walk from my room. Staff was friendly and seemed happy to be there. Great entertainment in the evenings. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Exceptional value, but a few tweaks needed.

We spent 10 days at this resort for our wedding anniversary and also my birthday, returned last week. I have to say, this is probably the best value for money, all inclusive hotel we have stayed at and we have stayed at quite a few. We were a little disappointed at the check in as this took close to 30 minutes despite only a few other guests arriving at the same time. We asked for a room in block 6 as going by previous reviews, this seem to be the better accommodation. We emailed the hotel twice prior to arrival to make this request and also to let them know it was our wedding anniversary. All a waste of time as the the reception said they had no knowledge of the email. After a few minutes we were offered a room in block 6, but for an extra $40 per night! Which we declined. No pressure to upgrade as seems to be the norm, so I guess the hotel was full. Once we had checked we had to wait 15 mins for the Bell Hop to show us to our room; not what you want after a 9 flight from the UK. We were allocated a top floor room in block 9. This room was fine, the bed excellent, slept like a baby! But the bathroom was in desperate need of a full refurbishment, it was so dated, no bathroom door to speak of, tiles looked tired, taps loose and ill fitting. Top tip! Get a top floor room, other guest we spoke to had complained about lower floor rooms smelling mouldy and drains smelt bad! The wifi was a bit hit and miss in the room and also throughout the resort. The buffet was very good, had a wide selection, something for every taste at breakfast, lunch and dinner. But the service sometimes lacked due to not enough staff. I can't say the same for the four themed restraunts which were just ok. The Seaside Grill is by far the best! We didn't dine there until late in the holiday, if we had gone at the start we would probably have ate there every night, it was that good! Overall the service was very good, but the waiter beach service was outstanding! The best at any resort we have stayed at. With a little attention to detail the hotel would be excellent and would warrant a 5* rating. But then I would expect the price to go up. The Dominican Republic is very pleasant. All the locals are always smiling and seem very happy, despite the degree of poverty which is evident everwhere. Would recommend a stay if you haven't been before. Probably better hotels on the island, but Dreams Punta Cana is exceptional value.

The Royal Treatment

It is not often as a parent to have an entire week with an adult child, but in honor of my daughter's birthday, she & I spent the week of March 12-19,2017 at Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Canaas our destination for our Apple Vacation. Apple has done a great job for at least 20 of my vacations, but it let me down badly with it's use of Frontier Airlines, the most uncomfortable flight ever! Dreams Palm Beach made me forget the hard plastic seats and charges for everything but water, until I had to fly back yesterday. Dreams Palm Beach is not a large property, but it seems spacious. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the several buildings are just three stories high. There are no elevators, but the climb is very doable for all but the most infirm (8 short steps, nice landing, 8 more steps). Because this was a special occasion, I decided to splurge and do the Preferred Club for our visit. The way the property is laid out, the Preferred Club is all but a separate property, with it's own adults only pool, family pool, lounge, and beach. The pools and the beach were pristine. Our experience was more than worth the extra dollars! The interior of the rooms is not as posh as some places I've stayed, especially the somewhat tired furniture, but poshness cannot really compete with the view from our balcony! I had requested "ocean view," but we were 'ocean front." If you want our recommendation for the best room in the Preferred Club, we would resoundingly say Room 4214. It was a terrific to pass evenings after dinner, sipping adult beverages and listening to the waves. If you wish your mini bar to be upgraded, just let them know and those adult beverages will be delivered every day. House keeping was excellent and there are far more channels in English on television than there were ten years ago when I was last in Punta Cana, though we didn't watch much television at all! The beach offered easy walking, crossing a number of other properties, and it was cleaned daily. There are many vendors, but they follow resort expectations to stay between the water and the first row of cabanas. They are colorful and personable and seem to know just how long to stay before moving on. Some people bought from them, but the majority did not. The water was beautifully clear and refreshing in the upper 70s or even 80 degrees and the waves are very gentle because of the reef off shore that breaks the speed of incoming waves. The pelicans and small gulls provided non-stop entertainment with their plunges into the water for fish. Fresh towels are plentiful and they did come through at least once a day to clear out towels that had seemingly been abandoned, but the use of towels to reserve spots is alive and well at this resort, though they request that guests not do that. Restaurants! No reservations are needed and we never had to wait for a table. There are four specialty restaurants and the buffet, called The World Cafe. We ate breakfast at the buffet our first morning and it offered seemingly anything anyone could want. We ate in the Sea Side Grill for breakfast and lunch the rest of our stay, a part of the Preferred Club. My daughter enjoyed the veggie wraps and I especially liked the Club Sandwich. We ate dinner there once and had pan-seared Grouper fillets, which were excellent. We visited each of the specialty restaurants and enjoyed them all--Mexican, French, Japanese, and Italian. I've visited at least two dozen resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean, most all-inclusive; and these restaurants collectively were the best I've experienced, the food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The service was flawless. We followed our concierge's tip and arrived about 6:15 in order to get seats at one of the the three Teppanyaki tables at the Japanese restaurant. The chef's knife skills were deft and the food quite good, not as great as our favorite place at home, but quite good. The house wines at all the restaurants are quite acceptable, though a wine list is available for purchases of bottles. All of these amenities make for a lovely visit, but the quality that separates this resort from the others I've stayed in (including other Dreams properties) are the people who work there. To a person, each took tremendous pride in caring for guests. The first day I went in search of ice. I had wandered our floor to no avail when a young man came down the steps from taking someone's luggage to a room. I asked where I might find ice and he immediately offered to take the ice bucket to fill. It turns out ice can only be ordered through Room Service, but he returned in 5 minutes with the bucket full, told me how to call Room Service, and then returned to his main job. Our concierge called twice during the week to see if all was going well and dropped by our spots at the pool just to say hello. My daughter had a wonderful birthday week thanks to Dreams Palm Beach Preferred Club. I would guess that would have been the case even if we hadn't chosen to upgrade, but the special amenities and wonderful treatment made us feel like royalty and what could be better for a birthday and a chance to have a week with my daughter? As a post note, it turned out this was Spring Break for many campuses. The flight had an abundant representation, as did the next resort down the beach. We had none, which made for us having the kind of quiet, relaxing vacation we wanted. Another reason the extra dollars were worth it.

Excellent experience

This was our 5th trip to the Dominican, first time at Dreams. We paid extra for the Preferred area and are glad we did. Was nice to have the special designated areas to hang out at and at night we'd go there to play cards and have a nightcap. Emilio in the preferred lounge was very attentive and a sweetheart. Jalina the bartender was wonderful too and made us awesome drinks! Our room was good. We had an issue with our toilet and they came to check on it but were not able to fix it. We just got used to it taking forever to fill up with water after we flushed it. The entertainment was the best of any of the Dominican resorts we've been at. It was different each night and seemed to be talent that was brought in, vs. local. We went to the casino several nights and did really well there (first time we've ever won in the Dominican so that was a plus). Food was awesome. Our favorite restaurant was the Italian. French was also very good. Asian was ok, but that's not really our type of cuisine. Didn't try the Mexican restaurant as we had heard it wasn't that great. Liked the Seaside grille and was nice to be able to go there for breakfast and lunch since we were Preferred guests. The beach was beautiful. This was the first resort in the Dominican where we didn't have a huge undertow out front. Great beach and water for children (not so at many other resorts). We also visited the spa. My massage was WONDERFUL and the spa was very nice, very tranquil. We were offered resort credits (a gold paper "key" given to you when you check in; not sure EVERYONE gets this, we were told about it when we booked our vacation). What you do with this key is make a reservation to sit down with a rep to try to sell you a vacation plan (resort stays, airfare, cruises). We listened to the presentation, chose not to buy, and received our credits. We spent about 90 minutes of our time doing this and that was "ok". The sales pitch wasn't too forceful, however when we were walking out one of the 2 managers we had to see after we told the rep "no" approached us at the door and she said "you understood this was a sales presentation, correct?". Yup, we did, still aren't buying, we did this just to get our credits for a massage. Oh well. We would definitely go back to this resort. It was beautiful, maintained well, food was awesome, and entertainment good. I have recommended this place to several friends already.
