This was my 4th visit to this resort and I will be returning again. The staff are very welcoming and the layout of the resort is comfortable. The food and service are good. Absolutely love this resort. The entertainment could be better during the day and at night, they are more concerned about entertaining themselves then they are in getting the guests involved. If there are any negatives to say it would be the entertainment. The grounds are tidy. If chairs are not available staff will get you whatever you need. One day I asked for an umbrella and within minutes I had one.

The Weird Sales pitch for Vacation programs
KERRY B.
Dec 31 2018
The only weird thing was the emphasis placed on taking part in a sales pitch for buying into a vacation program. It was said that we couldn't get a ride back to the airport free without taking part in the 90 minute presentation. They had no brochures or panpmplets, nothing written down, just some sleezy programs that seemed quite mysterious. None of this should be a part of the vacation!

First off, the room we booked was a "deluxe Tropical View" the only view we had was of construction going on at next building. The noise of the tools and equipment continued into the night making it unpleasant to sit on balcony. When I called to ask for a room change, the front desk clerks (2 that I spoke with) told me no rooms were available. I then called Apple Vacation and was given an upgrade within an hour. (nice job on Apple's part! The food in the buffet was pathetic, no real variety and nothing was ever warm. Found this to be true in most of the restaurants as well. Housekeeping was hit or miss. One day our room would be made up, the next not. Our mini fridge was not working for two days. When called about it, it took 24 hours to have it replaced. We wanted to tip certain servers that we enjoyed by the pool, but couldn't find ANYWHERE in the resort that would give us American $ back as change. We did not want pesos as change. Sadly, we complained to one of our pool servers about the money situation and he took it upon himself to take a $20 bill from my Husband and brought us back 20 American singles. That is something that Nobody in the front Lobby or shops was ever able to do for us. There was a very bad odor which can only be described as raw sewage around a large area of the resort. We noticed it mainly around the Preferred Building areas. The beach was in VERY poor shape. It was dirty and full of seaweed and debris. The was a team 'working' to remove it but never really saw much progress or improvement. Because of this, we generally avoided the beach.

I was very impressed with the property overall. Beach/Pools/restaurants/Spa/Service was excellent. I was rather disappointed with the rooms. They are badly in need of updating, especially the bathrooms and lighting. My friends room had issues with the toilet which were not addressed until the day before we left. More electrical outlets are needed and the tile job in the shower was atrocious! I am a travel agent so I look carefully at the Apple ratings. Once the rooms are refurbished i will once again sell Dreams Palm Beach with confidence. Everything but the rooms supports a 6 Golden Apple rating. The staff was amazing from the gardeners to check in to the restaurants.

"Good" for the price
BRIDGET M.

My fiance and I had been to Secrets in Cancun last year and since Dreams is a sister resort we expected a lot of similarities, however that was not so much the case. The staff members were lovely, attentive, and the food quality actually exceeded our expectations, it was incredible. However, the beaches were riddled with seaweed to the point where you could not swim in the ocean and the crew who was clearing it never finished until after the sunny hours. Entertainment pool-side was very minimal. We were looking forward to more dancing, contests, performances etc. We had also hoped for a hot tub in addition to the pools, there was only one and it was in the preferred member area so we could not use it. For the price we paid I supposed we got what was expected, but nothing more.

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.

I have to give this resort a 3.5. Positives are the employees, beach, pools, variety of food. It is a typical All inclusive resort with many amenities. The employees are very friendly and try very hard to make sure you are satisfied. Most speak English and Spanish, which is helpful. We exchanged through RCI for a Studio Preferred unit, King, tropical view. Unit was just ok. Bed comfortable, bathroom was weird. The shower door was glass and stopped oddly. Water splashed on floor when taking a shower. Privacy was lacking. Probably a older unit, could use a little upgrade, but wasn't terrible. Towels and maid daily. Upgraded snacks and beverages was convenient with the preferred upgrade. We had a 1st floor unit, I had requested a 2nd floor. We were given a option to switch later-but didn't want the hassle. The resort does fumigate for insects, but being on first floor we did see a few that got in. I guess being in tropical area you can expect, but not something I like seeing; especially very undesirable bugs. I didn't notice many mosquito's or sand flies. There are 2 preferred area pools. The square one is adults only. The oval pool had comfortable loungers and a "hot tub". We called it the cesspool, because there were about 10-15 little kids in it. Nothing against kids, but they probably shouldn't be in a hot tub. I didn't touch that water though. Could of been cold for all I know. There always seemed to be enough chairs somewhere, and areas for shade. There are two larger pools in the main area. One with the swim up bar, and a lagoon style/volleyball area. I wouldn't of minded a little tropical quiet music at one of the pools. Only heard the Zumba music from main pool at certain times. They had other games going on during day. Something for everyone. Beach was pretty nice with lots of chairs. Grill hut with burgers, hot dogs, fries, and nachos on beach wasn't too bad. Food in buffet was pretty good. We ate there the most, and it had a good variety. My husband didn't see any mashed potatoes. Had made to order eggs, meats, pasta. Al la carte places were ok. Didn't find them amazing or anything. Buffet was just as good in my opinion. My pallet is basic American though. Kids buffet was cute. Bottled water at bars and sometimes restaurants. Drinks were really small glasses, but could use a mug if you want. A little weak on booze, but I suppose you could ask for more. We tipped anyone who provided exceptional service, and they appreciated it. Your choice. Hassled a little bit by lady from Unlimited Vacation Club to take a timeshare presentation. I kept saying no, and she didn't want to accept that. I was getting pissed off, and ready to walk away. One step away from yelling at her. Don't try to trick people into thinking you are a concierge, when you are a pushy salesperson. You insult my intelligence. I just wanted my $200 in coupons to use at spa and casino. They were offered with the booking. Been through that whole process many times, but she was one of the worst. We booked transportation and a tour through Am-star, and both were very good. There were a few shops on site as well as, a small casino, kids club, sports and games, theater, and spa. Prices were a little high compared to other resorts we have been to. I didn't notice a lot of water sports being done, just para sail. ?? The resort could use some detailed cleaning of windows and walls, things like that. The plants,flowers, and grounds are nice. Noisy corridors. Overall, I would consider other resorts in future. If you are a family it might be a better option, but as a couple I didn't find it exceptional.

Good and bad

There were some very nice aspects of this resort, as well as some annoying ones. First, do not get the regular room, go with Preferred for many reasons. The rooms are significantly nicer, and you get a jacuzzi for a few dollars more. I wish I had know about the jacuzzi part. We did not have that in our room. You also get access to the adult only pool, which was a huge stress buster for us. Speaking of jacuzzi's, one of the most annoying things for me was the one outdoor jacuzzi in the entire resort was "broken". It seemed to me that it was being used as a kiddie pool, as it was filled with kids all day. There is a jacuzzi in the Spa, but it's 49.00 a day to use the Spa facilities, unless you book a massage, in which case you have access for one hour before and after your massage. I asked if I could use the spa jacuzzi because the other one was broken, and they said no. Huge let down for me, as I kept talking about how I couldn't wait to soak in a jacuzzi every night on vacation....which brings me to another annoying feature. The pools close at 6 pm. I don't know if this is common in resorts, as this was our first resort vacation, but it was a damper for sure. The beach was not great either. The water was brownish out to the man made barrier, which wasn't very far. You only get a little rectangle to swim in, and then the ocean is blocked off. I assume they do this to help manage the seaweed, which is constantly being raked up, which I think contributes to the cloudy water. However, a short walk down the beach brings you to a more natural area with no barrier, and no seaweed raking so the water is clear and blue. The food was awesome though. The Buffet was a highlight every day, and the restaurants also had good food. And the alcohol flows from morning to night, if you like that. The Preferred section also puts out delicious appetizers that we took advantage of every evening before dinner. Special shout out to Emilio, one of the waitstaff. He was very attentive and friendly. I did book a massage at the Spa, which was definitely worth it. My massage therapist had gifted hands, deftly relieving my heel and hip pain, allowing me to easily walk to the natural beach areas:) We were there for a wedding, and the resort did a fine job executing that, and a good time was had by all for the Big Event. Like I said, good and bad.
