Language barrier - they play you - most can speak English unless they don't want to. Nightlife - We weren't looking for a Vegas show - the shows we did see, were actually not bad at all. They were locals, but they were good. There is no night swimming - pools close at 7 pm. Not sure the reason tho. Other that that, nothing at all to do. I expected more for sure. Food - If I had to give it a rating it would be a 2.5 out of 5. NO reservations is terrible - and most people we spoke with agreed- if you paid for a butler ($100 per room), you could make reservations. Activities - NOTHING was included although the brochure states they are. You had to pay for everything. Rooms - Sub par at best. Run down - small things that are easily fixable - toilet seat cover falling off, toilet paper holder broken and had to sit on the back of the toilet. Lights hanging by screws. The dresser had 2 small drawers - 4 hangers in the closet. Had to live out of the luggage. Safe was not screwed into the wall. But they were clean, so that's a good thing. Upgrading to Preferred - We did it and it was worth it. We got our rooms cleaned earlier than the non preferred - Having the preferred and preferred adults only pool was great. If you aren't outside by 8 am, you don't get a seat by the pool because people put their towels down and go and do whatever. Not enough pool seating throughout the resort. Beaches - I can count on both hands the number of people we saw in the water. The beaches in Punta Cana are far from beautiful. The water is terrible and full of seaweed unless you go out 30-40 feet. The seaweed "on the beach" is not the issue. The hotel staff takes care of that. Resort - The resort is beautiful and well maintained. (besides the room issues). Staff was friendly. Apple Vacations - not sure they helped in any way - besides getting to and from the resort. Check in- they want to up sell so it takes a long time. Sad to say, but I will not visit Punta Cana again. Most of the reviews on the sites I looked at before we left were pretty much on. The theft of my jewelry started the vacation off on the wrong foot. I am happy to say it did get better as the days went

10 days at Dreams Palm Beach

Me and my husband went here for 10 days Jan 6-15. Overall this trip was amazing I would definitely come back! This resort was a perfect size being able to walk to the back, restaurants Lobby and pool quickly. Some rep sorts are so big and you have to take. Golf cart to get around anywhere because of the size. The beach/water was a little sea weedy at this time but I know it was probably just the time of year. I’ve booked all of my vacations through Apple!

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.

Gracias Juan Carlos Preferred Beach!

Hi Everyone! We just came back from a very fun family and friends trip. The hotel is ok. Rooms need a serious update. But The food and drinks were very very good! Special mention to the Buffet. What a wonderful surprise! Try the risotto, way much better that the one from the Italian restaurant! The pesto, superb! But the best of the best was Juan Carlos from the Family Preferred Beach. Always with a smile, so nice! He remember every thing that everyone likes! Gracias JuanCarlos! Por las piscinas de Champaña, los Vodka Tonica, las piñas coladas , los ceviches y deditos de pollo. Sin ud. Nuestra experiencia no hubiera sido tan buena. Gracias por ser parte de nuestro viaje y alegrarnos siempre que aparecía. Un abrazo de todos los 21 chilenos!!

Awesome Holiday thanks Judi and Junior

We just returned from an awesome week. It was our 3rd time at this resort and it never fails to impress. We stayed in the preferred club rooms in building 1 and the room was perfect, overlooking the adults pool. Most of our meals were at the World Cafe Buffet, that's because of Judi and her friendly smile welcoming us, to the awesome service that Junior provided. He went way out of his way to make our meals the best they could be. A special shout out to Reynaldo and the awesome service he provided on the beach, thanks for the Coors.. We where there for the Super Bowl, and I can honestly say this was the best beach party I have ever been to. From the big jumbo screen to the surround sound, to the cheerleaders and all the party food and drinks they didn't cut any corners making this a great party. There is no problems finding lounges on the beach, yes there are guys walking the beach trying to sell stuff, but a polite no thank you and they will be on there way.

Huge spider at the room

I went for a one week business trio in this hotel and I’m glad I didn’t pay for it. - food is not tasty - there was a huge spider (see pic) in my room and I called staff and talked with 3 different employees to help me take it out and no one did NOTHING - my friend had to kill it for me - there’s no entertainment at night, like NOTHING to do - drinks are made with bad licquors unless you ask for specific brands - beach is not that beautiful However, the staff is always in a good mood

Great family resort or just adult also!

We are getting ready to leave now, and I just want to say that the service here is excellente!! Junior made sure we were fed well & Eduardo R. kept us well hydrated at the beach!! These two were exemplary employees! They all are, but these guys went above & beyond our expectations. This resort included us in an impromptu renewal of the vows that was absolutely beautiful and touching. We had a great time.
