We had 3 couples and we had requested to have our rooms close to each other. We were put in a different building which was unacceptable. It took the hotel over 2 hours to move our room. Two hours is a long time in the lobby.

DISAPPOINTING

Too much pressure to listen to vacation club memberships. Toilet backed up and was told toilet paper should not have been put in toilet. Restaurant food wasn't so good except for seaside grill. Drinks were way too strong. Electric was down way too often. Took staff too long to rectify problems (toilet, key issues). Water in shower was lukewarm at best. Grounds were well maintained and waiters were very friendly.

I would not give this a 6 golden apple. There is nothing to see if you use the snorkel equipment, they only give a lesson on how to use the hobiecat. the beach is small. The people were nice, the food was very good, the grounds are beautiful. Do not...do not do the vacation presentation! Waste of time and very expensive. It is a little humiliating and the 199.00 3 days and 2 nights are impossible to commit to. It left a bad taste and ruined our afternoon. We lost power and water for a day. Also, concierge forgot to call a taxi for us for mass. Got there speeding!!!

The AC in our room would not go below 77 degrees fahrenheit. We called daily for the first 4 days and were told someone was coming to fix it and they never did. We ordered room service and waited 1.5 hours and finally called and were told it was on the way and never came. The seapro employees the hotel obviously has a contract with came up on the beach and even in the pool area daily/multiple times a day to the point of harassment. My sister got married on a Monday and the power went out at the hotel Tuesday morning all day so the entire bridal party had to wait in the heat to take a warm shower when the power came back on that night 12 hours later. The power also went back out the next day. The food at the hotel made almost everyone sick daily. The father of the groom almost didn't make it to the ceremony because his stomach was so upset. Every room in the hotel had to be bug sprayed while we were there and we all left with strange bug bites on our arms and legs unlike anything we have seen before.

Disappointed
LYNNETTE F.

We were in Punta Canta to celebrate my mothers 70th birthday. I was taken aback that the first bag was not free and that Frontier charged $45.00 per bag. The flight from Chicago to Domnican is long, however, Frontier does not provide passengers with free beverages and the staff was quite rude. Day II Room 6209 flooded after one shower. My mom didn't get to take a shower and we proceeded to have breakfast, then I went to the front desk to discuss getting another room. I was informed that I would have to wait until 1 pm due to electrical failure. When I returned to the front desk at 1 pm, I was told to come back at 3 pm. Still my mom did not get to take a shower. We were eventually moved to room 7209, but the hotel had run out of towels. When I spoke to the maid service, I was told that they were out of towels. On the final day, my mom and I arrived at the airport at about 10:30 am, the csr checked in our luggage (ouch another $90.00) and handed us our tickets. When I looked at the tickets it read departure 1:45 pm. However, the Apple vacation iteniary read departure 12:40pm. After sitting there for hours, the plane did not board and leave the Domnican until after 3pm. When I spoke with the manager at Frontier, she said that I should have gotten an email explaining that the flight would be delayed and then she said everyone else was aware. Everyone else confirmed that there was a breakdown in communication. I have travelled with Applevacations in the past, this has been the worst experience EVER!

Dreams Palm Beach was a dream
REBECCA B.
Apr 25 2018
My husband and I chose Dreams Palm beach from the previous reviews and honeymoon package options to take for our own honeymoon. We wanted good service, friendly people, and pampered in a way that we would never pay for any other day in our lives. This is so much more than what we received at this resort. They greeted us as Preferred customers and Yonathon our go-to guy called almost daily and approached us when he saw us around the resort to make sure that our room and everything was going great for us. We did excursions offered by Apple and they were awesome too! I would recommend this resort to anyone for good food, lots of rum, and quality relaxation!

Customer Service was the best, Emilio in the VIP section was our favorite server (always had the biggest smile and always remembered us), food was excellent, and cleanliness of the resort was fantastic. Only gripe was that you needed pants for most of the restaurants inside of the resort and we did not pack any for the trip. Also there was a lot if seaweed the month we went, so the beach water looked brown and not blue (but that was not the resort’s fault). 5 Star Service!

Wonderful stay with family

Had a great stay at the Dreams Palm Beach. For the most part stayed on the resort for the whole week since all the kids wanted to do was go to the pool. We did do one excursion to go snorkling which was fun. The excursion was sold by a company located on the property so we just walked down to the beach and got on a boat. Very convenient. We got a room with the preferred club which turned out to be worth it. You get access to an additional kids and an additional adult pool as well as lunch access to a beach restaurant. Also you didn't need to wait in line first thing in the morning to sign out towels to claim a beach chair. The towels were freely available in the premium club and it was much easier to get a chair there than by the main pools (sometimes still tricky though). Worth noting that I have food allergies and thought this hotel did pretty well with it. I contacted them ahead of time about it and when I got there I asked for the food coordinator. I was amazed that the 7 head food and beverage people all came to welcome me and put my mind at ease. They gave me a card to present at all my meals with my allergies written down in Spanish. Very impressed! When it actually came time to eat the sit down restaurants were good. On the other hand the buffet was challenging. I found you really needed to find someone in charge. Probably partially due to a language barrier I'm not sure some of the staff there took it seriously, or at least I didn't feel totally comfortable that they understood what I was asking. Every meal I ended up asking for the manager and they came right out and walked me through my options. Overall it ended up being just fine. I would just recommend you make sure to get someone who knows what's up when you are eating. The beach was awesome with white sand and without a lot of rocks. There is some kind of barrier in the water to prevent a lot of seaweed from washing up on the beach. The only annoying part is that there are some vendors who walk up and down the beach and can be a bit aggressive sometimes. If they get too close to the hotel beach chairs though there is hotel staff to shoo them away. The drinks were pretty good as well. In particular my kids got a taste for a "Miami Vice" (without alcohol of course). This is half frozen strawberry daiquiri, half pina colada. All in all, an excellent vacation!

Can’t wait to go back!!

This trip was absolutely amazing. You feel welcomed from the second you step foot on the resort. Most of our days were spent near the pool and the beach (as they should be) and the entertainment team and bartenders ensured we had so much fun we never felt like we needed to leave the resort. Gavi was excellent every day at the pool and got you get up and have fun. When he and the other entertainment team saw you in the evenings they got up and got you to dance and get to the disco in the evenings. Rafael at the swim up bar was also amazing. Made sure we never waited long for a beer and remembered what we were drinking. This was an overall experience with everyone who worked at the resort and many people remembered and called me by name. I am already planning another trip back. 110% recommend going!!

My family and I stayed for 2 weeks at Dreams palm beach and we had such a fantastic time! The weather was 30 degrees every day with it raining two or three times of an evening / early morning but was dry again the following day. The cleanliness is impeccable from the food, the communal toilets, the room, the pool and surrounding areas and beach. All were Excellente! Due to travelling with a 7 months old, we only really ate at the world cafe for ease but I was told by other couples we met that the Himitsu Asian cuisine, the Italian restaurant and also the El Patio Mexican Restaurant were all very good! I can honestly say that every member of staff I said atleast “Hola” to were all amazing and this was namely what made this hotel so wonderful - it’s staff. If you are thinking of going to the Dominican with children this is 100% the right choice for you. They all made such a fuss of our little Freddie and made this trip for all 3 of us, one to remember for a very long time! To name a few....Denisa the waitress. A wonderful person and very hospitable and just generally very good at her job. Okie Dokie (yes that was his name) in the world cafe. A pleasure to meet and nothing was ever a problem from fetching us hot water to warm a baby bottle or drinks, extra cutlery, a high chair. He was excellent. Jose x2, Augusto and Diego in the pool bar were soooo funny and we had a wonderful time joking around with them and I should mention the service was absolutely perfect! Lola at front desk was great as was the whole concierge team. I have probably missed off others that’s made our stay so enjoyable. You were all Excellente! Thank you all again and we will be back! James, Adele and Freddie. London, UK
