Great place to stay.

Beautiful landscaping. Peacocks and flamingo roam the property. Lots of food and activities on the beach and in the pool. Plenty of activities for kids and adults. The restaurants and buffet had something for everyone. The staff is very friendly and greet you everywhere you go. Genesis was a great hostess and checked every day to see if we needed anything and provided special promotions. Simon....best food service and greeter.

Perfect vacation for young family

We just got back from our trip to Dreams Punta Cana and are already missing it! We were a little bit nervous about bringing the little kids along with us (sons aged 6 and 4) for their first major vacation. The trip went much better than I ever hoped though. From the moment we arrived, the service from most of the employees went above and beyond. There was a slight issue with the room for the first night (we had requested a junior suite with two doubles, but all that was available was one king), so for that night they brought in two twin beds which worked out fine. Then the next day we were able to check into the junior suite with two doubles, and it was a great room (not that cheap but worth it). The room also came with a nice Jacuzzi on the balcony. The grounds were immaculate. Pool was fantastic, as was the beach. Lots of good pool/outdoor bars and restaurants nearby. Everything within walking distance. The food and the restaurants were great. We especially enjoyed the peacocks and pink flamingos that would walk around. Our favorite aspect of the trip though was the Explorer's Club for kids. We were at first a little wary dropping off our kids for a few hours at a time, but it worked out great and they did a fantastic job there organizing fun activities for them. This allowed us some private time to relax at the beach during the day, and go to a nice grown-up dinner in the evening, while they were also having fun. We did a lot of research beforehand on the pros and cons of each destination in Punta Cana. I would say don't believe any of the really bad reviews about Dreams, and also this place is great for anyone, especially if you have little kids. We will hopefully be back next year!

Excellent customer service, relaxing, child freindly

Arrived for our 2 week stay on New Years Eve which was a high point, lovely gala dinner and beach party with awesome fireworks. Large resort with all you need for a relaxing break, plenty of dining options all part of your all inclusive, bars were well stocked and had the top brands so if you name the brand you want you get it. We didn't have kids in our party but the resort is geared to entertain them all day up until 10pm. We couldn't fault the staff, they work hard to make sure that your holiday is 'excellentee' at all times. We had a couple of minor issues in our room which were user error on our part and they sent maintenance within 15 minutes on both occasions. The only slight downside is that the spa is very expensive compared to UK prices - an 80 minute massage is £150, they did offer daily deals but I wouldn't have wanted to pay full price as it wasn't good value, although the facility itself is super. We got a good deal and compared with what the Americans had paid we had a bargain, I always considered that it was a cheap holiday for them but that's not the case. We wouldn't return to the Dominican Republic but that's simply because we have a rule not to go back somewhere the World is so exciting with so much to see we have a 'to do list' but I could highly recommend it here for a lovely holiday as couples or a family of all ages. Beautiful flamingos live on resort and meander around guests by the pool all day, so do the peacocks, at night the flamingo's return to their little pond and it's a magical sight to see them under the moonlight so close up.

We are a family of 5 who travelled for a week on 31st December. We opted for the two rooms rather than a suite as we read in other reviews this was the best option and we were not disappointed . We were told that adjoining rooms were not guaranteed but we sent an email request. The rooms are fine , many reviews give out about the rooms but we were happy with them. Although if you are a natural born complainer and study ever square inch of the room then I'm sure you will find something to moan about. We eat mostly in the world restaurant as with three kids you have the varity of food for the little ones. One night we went to the ocean restraurant OMG the sea food was amazing ,it's a must. The pool is very long and narrow , this means that the sunloungers are plentiful and all close to the pool.Our 6 & 8 year olds loved the explorers club and the entertainment sheet meant the kids can chose what times they wanted to go to the club for the individual activities . The entertainment team were great and got everyone involved in the activities . The beachside burger bar was great , really nice burgers. The night time entertainment had its good and bad nights . The magic show is a must for any would be kidnappers , never knew how many different ways there were to put a woman in a small box. The casino is rather small but plenty of room to lose a few dollars. few points Coffee shop very handy The beach beds are a nice touch The resort is so clean , very large cleaning team working around the clock Watch out for MR Happy Happy ice cream man about 3-4pm really nice guy and Benjamin Franklin ( entertainment team ). To finish the staff are a credit to the hotel and very helpful , if you are going to this resort please remember they are humans doing a job . Good manners cost nothing so please and thank you works both ways.

Don't Believe Anything Bad Anyone Says About Dreams Punta Cana

We visited Jan. 2017, and it was the most beautiful, friendly, and clean resort I could have ever dreamed of. From the food to the grounds, to the amaaaazing staff. My fiance has visited many many resorts in the Dominican, and he says this one was by far the very best. There is an endless assortment of food in the buffet, which I might add, is very top notch, delicious, and varied. The restaurants offer very very yummy dishes. The steak was so tender, the seafood so flavourful, and the bbq's were delish. There was a bar at every corner. They could have been more consistent in the drinks being made at each bar, but I think that is just splitting hairs. On another note.....the staff were not afraid to top up your drink with that great Dominican Rum!!!! Boyeee that was a strong one :-) The grounds were soooooo immaculately clean it was beyond anything I have ever seen in a public place ANYWHERE!!! The floors to any one of the bathrooms felt squeaky clean under my bare feet....yes I said bare feet. My first time EVER in my life I actually sat on a public toilet seat....I know crazy eh??? It was like the cleaning ladies waited outside the bathroom door to clean each time a guest used the facilities. Super fantastic amazing job !!!!! <3 The sandy ashtrays were raked and stamped with a DREAMS logo. I was afraid to butt my cigarette for fear of messing up the ashtray...lol. The sandy beach was raked and cleaned everyday which made it so amazing to walk on. The ocean was a bit rough, but it's the Atlantic....what do you expect when an Ocean breeze picks up...no one can control the weather...yet. The pool is HUGE!!!!! The grounds never crowded. Poolside lounge chaises do fill up....so get one before lunch hits. There is lots of shade and landscape, fluffy thick grass, and the roaming peacocks and flamingos were my favorite. This is a great place to vacation. Lots of things for the adults and the kids to do. Anything bad you hear about the Dreams is just people venting because something happened.....and things always happen. Thank you Dreams for a vacation in paradise....and Thank you Ricardo for enlightening our stay everyday at breakfast and lunch. Steve & Jen
