Poor Plumbing, Stained Sheets & Malfunctioning Air Conditioning
Melinda A,

Check-In was longer then expected. Staff sells you rooms to upgrade & there is a reason why. There rooms seem very outdated. The drain in the shower does not drain properly, a pool of dirty water fills up rather quickly and before you know it, you are standing in a pool of dirty water. There is no shower curtain, they have 1/2 a glass panel that does not prevent the shower water from spilling out onto the floor. You will use every single towel provided trying to dry up the floor to prevent from having a nasty spill. I was told that I would be allow to upgrade my room for a fee of $215 Dollars to have a Honeymoon suite or A "Preferred" Upgrade for $55. The hostess said the bathrooms were more spacious. After agreeing to the upgrade, we were told that our payment could not be processed. We called Discover, they verified that our card was able to process any and all transactions during our stay in Punta Cana. By then we were tired, hot and hungry. The hostess told us we should come see her the following morning to rebook the "up-grade" The following day we returned to see the same Hostess who told us to come back once again, this time to come again but this time at 11 A.M they she would have an upgrade available for a fee of $50. To then be told that they are sold out of rooms. Then a "manager" comes to tell us that they are sending people over to stay at another resort because they are completely booked. To add to our aggravation, we found find a note slipped under our door informing us that our rooms would be fumigated for bugs. Perhaps rooms should be fumigated before guests arrival, but that's just my opinion. Am I the only one who enjoys sleeping on clean, crisp, white cotton sheets?? I'm sure I'm not. I strip the sheets off the bed to find black stains on the sheets. I checked and rechecked to be sure they were only stains. The mattress is also worn and lumpy. Felt more like a trampoline. So, to sum it up, uncomfortable mattress, poor quality sheets that are worn & stained are placed on the guest beds. Finally we were "up-graded" to the Preferred Club, Private pool and Cafe, the room truly was an upgrade & then the Air Conditioner only spewed Warm Air. The overhead fan only circulated it. I'll be posting pictures on Trip Advisor as they do not allow for reviews to be accompanied by photos on this site. Pls read other reviews before booking this resort. People at the airport, are pitching the Hard Rock, perhaps my next trip to Punta Cana will be there. I have visited other resorts here in Punta Cana which I have loved, that is why I've always come back. If you book I truly hope that your stay is better then mine. ***Stained, Scratchy Bed Linens ***Mattress with no support whatsoever ***Poor Plumbing ***Mold on Tiles ***Malfunctioning Air Conditioner ***Do Not Drink The Water More>

Having an excellente' trip. Just felt the need to mention our Butler Wilson for going over and above the top for a romantic evening to celebrate our anniversary. The details were impeccable! Rose petals everywhere, champagne, phenomenal dinner. Thanks Wilson for making our 20th as wonderful as our wedding night! More>

Amazing time at Dreams Palm Beach!

My husband and I traveled with our 6 year old son to Punta Cana from Dallas the first week in August of 2016. We booked our trip through a travel agent who used Apple Vacations. From transportation to the hotel representative booking excursions, apple representatives were amazing! From the time we arrived at the resort, greeted with cold wash cloths, everything was beautiful, staff so friendly and a great start our our vacation. We were taken to the Preferred Club area and were checked in at a the reception area for Preferred Club members. We were then greeted by our room Butler, Wilson, and he took us to our rooms. We upgraded to the Honeymoon suite and a rollaway was brought in and placed at the foot of the bed for our son. I HIGHLY recommend the Honeymoon suite to anyone traveling with kids or extra family. The dining room, living room and extra 1/2 bath made our stay even more relaxing. We had room service deliver breakfast every morning to the dining room table and it was nice not to get up and get dressed to leave for breakfast. The food was always delicious. Wilson made our stay even more special. We had a phone to call him for everything, from extra towels to dinner reservations. He always made a point to talk to us any time he saw us on property and it made us feel like we were family. The food at the resort was great everywhere we went - the Italian restaurant, the Mexican restaurant, and the Japanese restaurant were all delicious eats. We mostly ate at the Sea side grill as it was convenient to our room and you can't beat the ocean view. We highly recommend this resort to anyone thinking about going to Punta Cana. The staff is helpful, friendly, and just a delight! My son never used the kids club, but it was always an option. He loved the pool and ocean too much to want to do anything else. We can't wait to go back and bring more people! More>

Exceptional Service at DPB

We spent a week in mid-August 2016 at Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana, and booked through our wonderful agent, Ruth DeMuth at Trip Guy Travel. Ruth is always a pleasure to work with and we will continue to use her services for our Caribbean trips. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 3 children aged 9 to 15, and everyone was happy with our choice of resort. Two years ago, we stayed at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in Jamaica, and we were very happy with that trip, so the bar was set pretty high. Our requirements are an all-inclusive, smaller sized resort with better than average food, and a nice beach. The check-in was fine and we upgraded to preferred club on arrival. Our initial rooms in the non-preferred section were very tired and could use some attention, but we were much happier with the preferred rooms. The resort was at capacity, but Yanelys at reception worked hard to find rooms that were up to our standards. Compared to the rooms at Iberostar in Jamaica, the DPB rooms are much smaller, and therefore a little tight when sharing a room with kids. However, the beds were very comfortable and there was a nice variety of pillows in the room, so we slept well. The shower did tend to get water on the floor, but it wasn't really a big deal for us. The grounds at this resort are gorgeous and there were multiple staff members working on the landscaping each day. Many of the plants and trees were labeled, and there were even orange and guava trees right outside our balcony. The beach was very picturesque and the amount of seaweed in the water changed from day to day. By the end of our stay, there was very little seaweed and the water was beautiful. The sand is white and powdery, and the sea is very calm, making it ideal for little ones. The resort worked hard to make sure the beach was raked daily, and there were always beach chairs and palapas available. Most of the guests staked out the chairs by the main pool, and if you didn't play the game, you wouldn't be able to get a chair there. However, if you asked, the staff would find chairs for you and bring them over to where you wanted them. The main pool was very active and there was music playing and activities in the pool throughout the day. The preferred pool was much quieter and laid back. Burgers, fries, and nachos were available at the Barefoot Grill each day, and they also did paella on the beach and some poolside grilling while we were there. The kids liked going to the open air Core Zone after dinner each night and they had fun playing video games, basketball and foosball with new friends from all over the world. There seemed to be more Europeans, especially British, than Americans at the resort. While the kids had fun at the Core Zone, the adults hung out in the main lobby bar, or went over to the air-conditioned preferred club and watched the Olympics while sipping cocktails. We tried all of the restaurants with the exception of the Italian, and they were all very good. Even with a party of 7, we never had a problem getting a table and never had to wait. (We usually ate between 6:30 and 7:00pm.) The absolute best part of this whole resort is the exceptional service that you receive from the staff. Everyone that we encountered seemed to be happy to have us there and always greeted us in passing. They made us feel so welcome and appreciated. Jose Reyes, Wilys, and Orlando at the main pool bar were great, as were Antonio our server in the restaurants, Arizmendi in entertainment, Yanelys at reception, and Esmeralda in housekeeping. There were others that provided great service, but I can't remember all of the names. Thank you Dreams Palm Beach for giving us a much needed week of relaxation at your beautiful resort. More>

Lovely family holiday

Just waved goodbye to this lovely hotel in a the quiet end of Punta Cana. The hotel was exceptionally well staffed/clean/comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the staff really live up to the hotel's strapline of not being good but excellent. The food was great...they have a world buffet serving a changable range of foods...great to have healthy vegetables, fish, chicken. If you prefer burger and chips you can get that at the beach cafe. Then there's a choice of mexican, oriental, french, seafood grill and Italian restaurants...we tried everyone but the french one and very much liked each one. There is constant very good waiter service around the pool for drinks. Great range of top brand drinks and cocktails available. An air conditioned bar would have been very welcome in the evenings though...it was uncomfortably hot sat in the lobby. The rooms were well appointed with lovely comfy beds, shower room, balcony, minibar and safe. We upgraded to preferred club but wish we hadn't...it was a conplete waste of money. Supposedly got wifi as extra in our rooms which standard rooms don't have...but we learnt from many customers in standard rooms that they did! Wifi worked least well in our room than around the hotel. Anyone can use the preferred pool or beach area so again not worth the money. Yes you get small extras like hor deuvres and upgraded mini bar but not needed as theres so much to eat and drink in the hotel. Entertainment during the day was very good...wide mix of fun games and sporting activities. Free kayaking, paddleboarding, wundsurfing and small catamarans on the beach. You can pay fir extra activities and excursions too such as boat trips and banana boat. Most things you can haggle for!! We felt the evening entertainment could have been much more lively and better...however we thoroughly enjoyed the Dreams Rocks production..very good indeed. The hotel is off the beaten track with a few small shops nearby. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds on a lovely sandy beach but guarded day and night and has 8ft gates. This for us made it quite oppressive as didn't feel we could enjoy a stroll outside the hotel, certainly not at night. Highly commend Walter, Raybear, and Angelo and the water volleyball coach as really excellent staff in particular. More>
