first was given a room FAR away from the beach, receptions idea for this selection was that we would be close to the buffet. Our request was to be closer to the beach. the next room had a leak from the return in the ceiling-floor was wet, then given another room. Glad to have a dry room, we discovered that we had to cross a bridge (over the lazy pool) in order to get to the beach or anywhere in the hotel. Using a walker, going over the bridge was extremely difficult. We were to deal with reception again. Walking all the way back to the front of the hotel to change rooms again. Therefore, we had to collapse my walker "each" time and carry it (at least 4-6 times a day) to cross the bridge to get to the restaurants and beach other than the room. It was very exhausting for me.. The majority of the staff was not accommodating to my needs. I would think again to revisit your hotel. I had a difficult time navigating the resort. Staff needs to be more concerned with guests needs rather than the price paid.

Awesome experience

The resort is one of the best resorts we have stayed at, the food is great restaurant service was top notch. We have been traveling for 20 years and we keep going back to Dreams Punta Cana because from the time we arrived to the time we departed the entire staff made you feel like you are special. The employees we met were like friends, Meir was awesome Joel and Simon and morning staff were the best ever, and entertainment staff Sandy, Scooby Doo, Franklin, Jay Z, and Mirabell out by the pool we excellent. I recommend this resort to anyone we have already decided we are going back in October for our fall trip.

The "timeshare sharks are a terrible turn-off. Once you say "no thanks" their attitude changes drastically. I paid for upgraded concierge services and rec'd same, until I said NO to the "90 minute" presentation. This is MY vacation, I earned the time, and paid the cost. Take your sales pitches and get away from me! The liquor/wine at the public bars was crap, the food was crap. The beach, pool, room, and staff was awesome.

Outdated Resort

Rooms are outdated and very small. The website says they have premium liquor, however it is only at the lobby bar, all other bars is rail liquor at best. The food was okay, steakhouse was the worst. The kids club was amazing for our 7 year old daughter.

No Dreams here

Dreams is not what it once was. We've stayed at Dreams twice before and had a wonderful experience. However, overall quality, service and amenities have been cheapened, but the price is still high. Food quality was iffy at best, and the options were very limited. At every meal they were out of numerous choices. No berries, grapes, shrimp, lobster, salmon at all, ever. Limited meat options. We were forced to eat breakfast and lunch at the same buffet every day - unless we upgraded to Preferred. A scam! Only one bar in the whole place served top shelf liquor (which was supposed to be included) Even then, by about 10:30 PM, they would "run out" and start serving well liquor. Many bars did not have anything like bourbon or whiskey. They try to make you pay extra to become a Preferred Guest, but the perks are limited there too.The staff was very nice and tried to please, but many were poorly trained in bar and restaurant service, and were not given the resources they needed to provide good service. This resort absolutely does not rate 6 apples anymore! I would not stay here again. We've used Apple Vacations many times before, but are now skeptical of their ratings. Too bad.

not exactly a golden 6

Overall the hotel is nice. It does need some updating and the beach was not swimmable. Im more of a pool person anyways. You can walk down a little and the beach is fine. We got sucked into the preferred club. We opted to cancel it which they gave us a hard time and instead offered a partial hotel credit for it. They tell you private beach and cabanas, but there never available! I paid the additional $300 to have a nice place to sit on the beach which never happened. Im also not a fan of paying for an all inclusive package and then be told my luggage is additional, even carry-ons! I've been to punta cana a few times and next time I would stay at a resort more near punta cana where the beaches are better. Dreams is on the outskirts of punta cana so it doesn't have as nice as a beach which I didn't know when I booked. We got a good deal to stay here so overall I am pleased. I think anywhere you go there will be little things you don't like. I would say this is 5 star hotel not a golden 6 how apple rates it and I've travelled quite a bit. The entertainment staff is very nice, the shows were normal resort shows nothing spectacular. The food was good, even the buffet. I would go back for a good deal but I would not pay top dollar to stay here.

I could go into a lengthy review of this hotel but I am going to keep it simple. This year we paid more and got less. There was no top shelf liquor unless you paid 70 more dollars a day. Not worth it when you can buy a bottle in the store for 35. Which I should not have to do. The service was average, did not feel the you are welcomed her vibe that you normally do.

The hotel and all the staff were wonderful! The hotel itself is very nice and they go above and beyond in making your stay wonderful. The food was very good and a nice selection of different types of food. The size of the resort is nice too not too big and not to small. Their was always enough chairs for the pool and lots of shade. My niece got married there and she had a beach wedding. It started to rain and they were so good that they moved every thing inside and make it very special for her wedding. I can't say enough on how much everyone was soooo nice and accommodating.

fabulous stay

Visited Mar 28-Apr 4, 2018. Great resort. Employees are wonderful and make you feel very welcome! I can still hear the waiters from breakfast yelling "Happy Happy!" The people who did the shows and dancing were fabulous. Meiry & Ana were helpful in arranging dinners and a shout out to Meiry for making my surprise Birthday cake and song at breakfast happen! Great family resort whether you want to hang out at the pool or beach. You do have to claim chairs before 6 am but this was easy for me to do on the way to their great workout center. The flamingos that live there and wander around during the day were so cool! Nothing bad to say about the resort, variety of food options and very relaxing. We did get pictures with the parrots and then monkey they brought in, and the prices were not unreasonable for the photos. Great memories. The outside vendors that were there a couple days were a bit strong-armed though, we did buy a couple of jewelry things but we weren't sure of the prices they were asking were fair. Figured we did support the economy. we visited the spa for massages too, they were great. We had a great time!!!

After 30 resorts, still our favorite

This is the resort to get what you expect. Customer service is superior. The buildings, rooms and grounds are impeccably clean. Food and beverages are what you expect. Specificly, if you do not look down upon employees, you will get a smile and make a friend. Rooms are not new, but the housekeeping is dedicated to their work and you will receive follow-up phone calls to insure your satisfation. Within the collective group of AMSTAR resorts, we were not hassled regarding attending their VIP program. If you just want to relax, this is the resort.

Wasn't best trip I've done

Some things good, some not great, only thing I would say was excellent were a few of the staff. Mainly Joel one of the servers was absolutely great! Very friendly and attentive. Went out of his way for us many times. Gregory and pretty much all of the servers we had at the buffet restaurant were great too. One of the bartenders at the pool bar (which we knew as "manana" or tomorrow in English) was terrific too. Seemed like he was the only one hustling back there. Many of the other bartenders at the pool bar didn’t seem to care much or were not very friendly. Weird part is, we all tipped almost every round at every bar we were at, which it says is not necessary or expected. It didn’t seem to matter to some of these bartenders, even though we rarely (if ever) saw anyone else tipping. I thought the food was average at best and we mainly ate at the buffets. We ate at a restaurant once and the "barefoot Grill" or the pizza place for lunch most of the time. The lunches were just average. The buffet had a lot to offer, but many times the food was cold (even though they were in warmers). Everyone thought the buffet room was hot and they never open any doors or had any ceiling fans either, which is weird. Being hassled every day by people selling excursions or items for sale was a bit annoying as well. Some of them were aggressive and you had to not make eye contact or just completely ignore them. The grounds were kept up very well, but the buildings were dated and the one my room was in was in need of repairs. The slider in my room didn’t work well or even have a lock, the ceiling fan would not turn on, the closet doors were hard to slide, there was no shower curtain or glass of any kind around the tub/shower (so the floor and sink area got soaked every time), a towel rack was hanging off in the bathroom, etc. But by far the worst part of this resort was the casino, which I was warned about before heading on this trip from other reviews. Several of the dealers were absolutely terrible. You had to pay close attention or they would make "mistakes" quite often. One of the people we went with was doing well and up a little money and they ABSOLUTELY started doing whatever they could to either cheat her outright or make her lose. I know a lot about gambling and I know for sure what they were doing was intentional. Overall, I had a good time with my family and it was not the worst trip I have ever been on, but I cannot recommend it personally.
