When you pull up to this resort They greet you with a Drink, a cold Towel and a "Welcome Home" greeting. And this resort means it! Dreams is the ultimate in Customer service! The staff is amazing wanting to give you a great experience for your stay! Adrianne who can make the best drinks you have ever had, Willy the Preferred club beach Concierge who bends over backwards to keep you relaxed while your there, Zukelia The Preferred club Concierge. Angel and Joel are the best waiters and are always "HAPPY HAPPY"! Lastly, Larissa and Miery in customer service who never misses a detail for you! We have been to Dreams 4 times. We have also been to Breathless, Zoetry and The new Now Onyx. These are nice resorts but NOTHING compares to the service and facility of Dreams! Dreams is alot older than these other resorts but the rooms are extremely clean and The landscape is amazing! The pool is also the cleanest I have ever seen. But the staff is what keeps us coming back. The other places we go to cannot compare in the slightest to the staff here! The food is also some of the best there. Drinks are always flowing and the excursions from Amstar have always been top notch. If you are considering a stay in Punta Cana you will not be disapointed with this resort. It's the best! Also, the swim out pools are very good. We have stayed in them a few times

Property was a little dated but extremely well maintained. The grounds where absolutely beautiful. Room was clean but was a little dated. Pool was massive. Very large resort so you didn't feel like you are on top of each other. Food was outstanding!

The hotel rooms are dated, but the staff and amenities, the food, and the surroundings more than compensate. Some of the best food I've had in an all-inclusive resort. Will definitely return.

We had a family of 11 stay at Dreams for 7 nights over Christmas, our second visit in 2 years and again it was wonderful. The staff is amazing and so full of energy and entertainment. We love Dreams Punta Cana and would highly recommend it to couples or large families alike. The food and restaurants are great and their staffs wonderful. We also loved the nightly entertainment and shows...so fun. The casino, while small, is also a fun place to spend an evening. Very accommodating to all level of gambler. Highly recommend meeting Ben Franklin, Llino, Sandy and the entire bar staff at Manatee pool bar. Such warm and gracious people. Just love them!!

Overall, the stay was good. However, our room was not as clean as we would like and there was a plumbing leak in the bathroom. We were moved and the 2nd room was clean, but also needed some repairs. What salvaged this vacation was the beautiful grounds, great restaurants (w/ excellent service, and good entertainment.

The hotel was old and outdated, the rooms were dirty and needed major maintenance. Fans didn't work, holes in the floor, patching all over walls and ceilings, the shower is made for someone 5 feet tall. Asked if they had any updated rooms, stated they were all the same. They did not have enough employees for the amount of people there. The food was horrible-every thing I ate was not good, except for the muffins in the coffee cafe. I was highly disappointed in this resort, I think it needs to be taken off apple vacations. The entire hotel needs to close down and be renovated. I would not recommend to anyone.

The hotel needs air conditioning. The rooms need to be updated, especially the bathrooms. The entertainment could have been better, especially without air conditioning and only one fan working. The specialty restaurants were very good. Need more excursions that don't involve snorkeling. Overall we had a good time and we're treated nicely.

Hotel and the staff were excellent. Food was incredible and the grounds well maintained. The only issue was the vendors the resort allowed in that pestered people to buy stuff. Was annoying and couldn't get away from them.

Today is our last full day and we finally found the best bartender on the resort!!! Jose Migel ( at the pool side bar bar near to the pool side grill) has made today the best day of our trip!!!! The drinks were made right the first time and tasted great!!! He made sure the drinks for the kids were done right and when we asked for shots he made the best tasting shots ever!!! Could not have asked for a better bartender he made this trip fantastic!!!!! There should be more people like him on the resort!!!

Second great time

Overall this is a great resort, the common areas like the gardens, the pool, the beach are beautiful, the staff is simply amazing, the restaurants are all great, my favorites: 1. Steakhouse. 2. Oriental (Tappan and regular) 3. World Café. 4. Seafood. 5 Italian and last the French (The only one I didn’t like) The breakfast at the World Café is 5 Stars, the coffee and desserts at Coco Café amazing! We spent New Years Eve at the hotel, the dinner at the World Caffe was magnificent, salmon, best cheeses, lobster, Ribeye, great food. The New Years party at the beach was incredible, fireworks, DJ, a great Rock Band, champagne all the time. The hotel was selling to reserve tables for that party with special attention, we didn’t buy it and it was a great decision, we had a great time without spending so much money. The property is 25 years old, so in some areas it really needs an overhaul, specially in the rooms, that are OK, but too old decorated and sometimes with humidity smell and the A/C is not cold enough. The theater and the discotheque need a small renovation too. Regarding the drinks, the regular bars have a nice selection, but in the preferred area bars are much better, you can drink Grey Goose, Black Label, etc. The shows were very good, circus, western, boogie nights, there are bands playing in different areas, overall it has everything you need. Regarding the staff, the preferred area at the beach workers are simply impressive, great people, thanks a lot to the guys at the preferred Bar (All of them), Mr. Happy Wife-Happy Life at the World Café and the entertainers & Bar staff Antonio, Benjamin, Rafael from Barefoot, Carlos from Sugar Reef, Giovanni, Willy and everyone. Thanks for the great time!

Very nice place

The property is stunning and beautiful. The rooms could stand a face lift but the staff at the resort make up for that. They are the friendliest people with great appreciation towards their guests. We fully enjoyed our week there. We did three excursions and they were all wonderful. I can’t say enough about our great experience there.

Excellante Happy Happy!!

My husband, 8 month old son and I just returned from dreams for the second time. While our last visit was 2 years ago with all of my family, up all night partying, enjoying the shows and night life, this trip was different with a baby but did not disappoint in the least. From the food, beach, staff and rooms we were once again blown away with this resort. The staff are incredible! Ana Pena in customer service is awesome and remembered us right away when she saw us as did Benjamin Franklin and Super Louis! Big hugs were given all around. Ana made sure our stay was going great every day which was nice knowing we were cared for. The front desk ladies were great and so helpful. The buffet and restaurant staff were great and so incredibly awesome to my little son. Sanchez (and a gentleman with braces, forget his name) made my son giggle and played with him every time they saw him. I was genuinely surprised at how good those two and many others were to my family. My husband played tennis every morning and the sports director Leonel was fantastic and friendly. The sports zone had a popcorn machine so I asked him if they were planning on making any and 6 minutes later I had a bag. Everyone goes over and beyond for you here. Or at least in our experience. The spa is something else. I had two massages by Georgina and was so relaxed and felt awesome after. She was so kind as were Bella and another receptionist. The hot tub area is a must use if you can! Needless to say we would and will be going back a 3rd time. I've been home for two days and can't stop thinking about when I can get myself back. Thank you Dreams for making our first family vacation an incredible one!

Best resort in the Dominican!
Barb S, Toronto, Canada

We have just returned from the Dominican after an 11 day stay with 9 family members at Dreams Punta Cana. Met with Champagne, the grounds are impeccably kept, so many beautiful flowers and the pond with the Flamingos is gorgeous. Our rooms were great, beautiful flowers and decorations every day from our housekeeping staff-lots of hot water and face clothes-a free safe in every room, fully stocked fridge with cerveza and pop-even lovely plush robes in the cupboard on our arrival. With a family of 9 we worried about finding something for every taste, but we weren't disappointed. The World Cafe Buffet boasts International cuisine, long open hours so don't worry about missing breakfast-the omelette station is busy but they always managed to get them done quickly. They even have a station that makes homemade cinnamon buns with your choice of toppings! The menu in the Cafe changes regularly-even lobster on Saturday night! The CoCo Cafe (open 24 hours) has wonderful desserts and sandwiches-the lemon tarts are to die for! No reservations at the a la carte restaurants was a refreshing change-no long line ups, always lots of room and as always great service. Everyone is always "happy happy" and things are "excelente" The staff quickly recognized our family and sat us together. Sanchez and Jose helped with our 3 birthday celebration, cake, balloons and all-a quick call to the concierge and there was a banner on the door announcing the birthday.The steak in the Oceana is amazing, the Hibachi Grill in the Japanese restaurant is lots of fun for a party of 9 or 10. The pool is amazing, winding through the whole resort, never a shortage of chairs, 2 towels per person per day and the smiling lady at the towel centre was so friendly. Free scuba lessons in the pool and lots of activities for every taste. The beach is beautiful and well kept although the waves in the Atlantic were a bit strong for us. The vendors left us alone, I found they weren't as aggressive here, but instead very friendly and respectful. Pictures are available throughout out the resort with iguanas, monkeys, and parrots, but my only complaint, bring plenty of money with you to buy your pictures. You cannot take your own pictures of the animals and the cost to get them is quite high. Excursions are expensive (especially with a large group) and pictures more again. The Casino is small, 2 Black Jack tables, one Caribbean Poker, Roulette and a few slot machines, but the staff is very friendly and enjoys chatting with you, especially of you can pick up a few words in Spanish to say hello-we are still saying Hola and Gracias back home in Canada! Thanks Dreams for making our holiday so wonderful-the first resort where "all-inclusive" actually means "all-inclusive"we will come back soon!
