Dream Wedding - Lot's of Friends & Family
vanessatheriault, Fort McMurray, Canada
Thu Apr 27 13:49:22 EDT 2017
We just returned from Dream Palm Beach Punta Cana and absolutely loved our stay! We had the Preffered Club Honeymoon Suite - beautiful room with a view! The Preffered club was great as it had an adults only pool if you wanted a quite hangover day ha-ha! The food at the resort is excellent, doesn't matter where you ate! The buffet was awesome, all sorts of food! Lots of fresh fruit and the restaurants were also great. We definitely overate! Beach was a bit messy due to high winds and the ocean carrying in all sorts of things, but nothing to complain about! It is still a beach and a lot better then 15cm of snow. You could walk down either side, or relax in the chairs under the umbrellas! It was perfect! The pools were great, swim up bar! + a kids pool for the little ones! We were there celebrating with friends and family for our wedding (60 People). Chantal Rojas from the wedding department is incredible! Seriously, the easiest wedding EVER! (My first/last wedding). She made it so easy, she was always happy & a pleasure to be around. We had it on the beach - ceremony/cocktails & reception. It was perfect! A Dream Wedding! Overall, great resort/great people & a really good time! I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone and I am hoping to go back one day! Thank you Dreams Palm Beach for the wonderful stay!

Best vacation ever! So much fun! And lots of pina coladas!

They had a fashion show! The food was so excellent and so many options of restaurants! The pools were so large yet not crowed and quiet! And every night they have a wonderful show! The entertainment staff was so fun especially Lismari and Edna!

Our family stayed at the Dreams Palm Beach from 4/18/2017 to 4/25/2017. My husband and I traveled with our 19 year old daughter and our 12 year old daughter. In the past we have stayed at all inclusive resorts including Sandals, El Sid, Palace Resorts, etc. We have taken multiple cruises, stayed at Disney Resort Properties, and other similar resorts. Over all we were very impressed with Dreams, and we plan on returning. These are our impressions: THE PROPERTY The Dreams Palm Beach property is a short ride from the airport. It is beautifully manicured and well taken care of. The grounds have beautiful flowers, trees, and fountains. There are large swimming pools that allow air mattresses and other floaties. There are a lot of lounge chairs around all of the pools, and down on the the beach. The water is beautiful, but the beach area is small compared to other resorts I have stayed at. This in part is due to it being on a stretch of beach with other hotels. The beach here has seaweed that washes up, but it only minimally detracts from the beauty or the swimming. They have a section of the water roped off for a swimming area. Every time I was down on the beach I saw at least one lifeguard watching the guests. There was never a time that I did not see at least one employee monitoring the area. There are vendors who wander the public beach. I was very impressed that almost every time I saw a vendor talking to a Dreams guest, a security person showed up in the area. My 19 year old daughter told me she took her younger sister down to the water at sun set. She said out of nowhere someone from security showed up. He was not close enough that he made them uncomfortable. He simply watched them from a distance making sure they were okay. My daughter said having him there made her feel safe. She said he left the area when they did. The pool area can get crowded, and many people get up early to save lawn chairs. We were told by staff this is not allowed; however, most people seemed to respect the items left on the chairs by those saving the seats. PREFERRED STATUS Prior to traveling to Dreams I had read a lot about their Preferred status rooms. I personally really enjoyed the upgraded amenities, and for us this would be a must for future travel. These are the things we personally took advantage of: ***Pools/Beach: One of the things we enjoyed the most was the family pool that is only for preferred guests. The family pool is large, and it has a hot tub. The servers are constantly going around the pool asking what they can bring you. My kids loved their strawberry daiquiris, Banana Mamas, Mudslides, and Pina Coladas. The staff brought the kids their orders as quickly as they did the adults. All of the staff were great in dealing with our kids. I was not at the adult preferred pool, but they appeared to get the same high quality of service. Both of these pools had upgraded lounge chairs with cushions. In addition to the pools, there was a sectioned off area of the beach reserved only for preferred members. They also had drink service. The preferred pools and beach section have a menu for poolside food service. ***Restaurants/ Lounges: Both of the preferred pools have their own bars and lounges that are stocked with delicious snacks to eat. Some of the things they had for snacks were special sandwiches with the crusts removed; homemade guacamole with chips; various cookies, pastries, and cake/brownie chocolate covered bites; crab legs; calamari; shrimp; hot wings, etc. The selection varied each day, and it was all delicious. I saw there were other things inside the lounges including computers. ***Rooms: We especially enjoyed the complimentary snacks that upon request they will leave each day in the preferred rooms. My kids received Milky Ways, Peanut M & M’s, and a small container of Pringles. They would also leave a couple small bottles of alcohol. The fridge was restocked each day. If you request it, you can also get upgraded room amenities including bathroom supplies, and special pillows. THE EMPLOYEES AND OTHER GUESTS We thoroughly enjoyed the employees and the other guests that we met near the family preferred pool. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. There were many people who were return visitors. We felt very safe and well cared for while we were on the property. While we were there, a male had a serious diabetic emergency while in the hot tub. Many of the guests immediately began to work with staff to assist the male, and get him the medical help he needed. The hotel doctor and other staff responded to the situation immediately. It was all very impressive. We brought a large amount of U.S. dollar bills with us for tipping. Employees never stood around waiting for tips, nor did they expect them. We had to chase down quite a few of them just to hand them some money. With that being said when you tip, the service you receive is absolutely amazing. They do not make a lot of money, and they really love getting tips. One of our favorite servers was Juan Carlos, who worked at the preferred family pool. He always had a huge smile and he was constantly checking to see if we needed anything. What I really appreciated about Juan Carlos, is that he never asked me to give him this review. My 19 year old daughter had multiple employees ask her to mention them by name in a review so they could receive a reward of some sort from their "boss." One server at the breakfast buffet went so far as to write down all his information for her. We had never seen this person before that morning and his service was not very good! I think he was too busy writing down his name for people rather then refilling everyone’s coffee! The idea of this made me very uncomfortable, especially since there are so many people naming employees in these reviews. It makes me question how many of these comments are solicited. THE FOOD The food at Dreams was overall the best we have eaten at any all inclusive resort or cruise…hands down. There are so many restaurants and buffets to chose from! For preferred members there is even a place they can go for breakfast and lunch that is not available to other guests. We never ate there for these meals due to all of the other options. The breakfast buffet is huge, and the variety of food is amazing! The freshly made crepes were a favorite of mine. I always tipped the crepe man and he would make mine fresh for me! The only problem we consistently had at breakfast was finding someone to refill our coffee. They were also slow at refilling things that had ran out at the buffet. We enjoyed all of our meals. The room service is fabulous, and the buffets extensive. We ate at their steak/seafood restaurant, their Italian restaurant, and their Mexican restaurant. They were all delicious. We ate out by the preferred pool, and my kids ate from a place down near the beach where they have fresh hot dogs, hamburgers, and fries. Pretty much everywhere you looked or went, there was food to eat! I was so happy to discover the Coco Cafe. In the evenings there are cookies, smoothies, pies, breads, muffins, specialty coffees, and other treats. So fun! THE ROOMS We actually stayed in two rooms. Primarily we were in room 1217 with two double beds. This room overlooks the adult pool on the second floor. We also stayed for a couple nights in room 5314 to celebrate our anniversary which over looked mini golf. The resort placed a Happy Anniversary sash on our door, gave us a special fruit tray, and sent us a bottle of champagne to enjoy which was thoughtful. We found both rooms extremely clean, and the beds were comfortable. We did not like the layout of the bathroom and shower area in either room even though they were different from each other . They could have been made to ensure more privacy. As other reviewers have said there is a faint odor of mildew in most of the rooms. The building seems to be all concrete with no fans drawling moisture out of the rooms. This left almost a damp feeling in the room due to the air conditioners constantly running. The housekeepers do a fabulous job keeping everything immaculate and I often smelled bleach after they were through cleaning. The slight mildew odor is not from the rooms being unclean, I think it is a bi product of them being in the Caribbean with very little ventilation. It really was not a big deal to us, but when we go again we will probably bring a Dry-Z-Aire to help remove some of the water from the air. We have used these in storage units and with our travel trailer in the past. The hotel was very responsive to any requests we had for extra towels, and to any of our other needs. THE SPA My daughters and I spent some time at their Spa. Make sure you bring your bathing suit since they have a beautiful private pool with waterfall that you have access to after your services. The massages were received were wonderful. They have special fish that will take care of nibbling off the dead skin on your feet for $25! A little creepy, but fun! Afterwards you get a little foot massage. This was especially fun and something kids really enjoy! ACTIVITIES AND SHOWS There were always different activities and things going on. We did things like Zumba, beach volleyball, water aerobics in the pool, dancing, etc. The resort was small enough that I felt comfortable letting my kids go to the different areas without me. They loved all of the activities they participated in, and all of the night time shows. There are many other things going on at Dreams, but those were the highlights that we experienced. We felt it was a good value for the money. Our favorite thing by far was the food. It was consistently amazing especially for an all inclusive. The drinks were delicious too! We had so much fun relaxing at the resort, we actually did not leave the property! Kudos to the Dreams staff and thank you for such a wonderful family vacation.
