Group of 16, a little rough at check in, but everything was resolved
KATHERINE C.
Jul 08 2018
Saved up for this trip for a year, my family of 16 wanted all 5 of our rooms near each other. When we checked in, we were placed on opposite sides of the resort. We went to the desk and they told us that there was nothing that they could do because the resort was full. We worked with the concierge Ana Pena who helped us resolve our room issues. Without her, we would not have been put together. Which is sad because we booked this trip many months out with the request to be together. The Apple vacation AMSTAR people were no help to us. I was a little shocked by that considering that they tell you that they are there for you. It seemed as if they wanted to sell excursions more than be helpful to us in this situation. The resort was beautiful and the restaurants were great. Ana Pena and the restaurant staff helped us to get a table for 16 each night which was greatly appreciated. The bathrooms near the reef bar were cleaned and cared for constantly, but look in need of some repairs. The included water sports were good, but the contracted people were pushy and wanted you to pay for activities instead of doing the free activities. People went around with cameras taking pictures but we never saw them posted anywhere. The entertainment crew was great, the shows were entertaining, but the facility was too hot. We felt hot and sweaty each morning at the world cafe. There needs to be more fans or better air circulation in the world cafe, trattoria, Oceana, seaside grill. When you have an open air facility, it should feel cool, and the air should flow. I have been to many open air places and this was way different. Very hot, stagnant air. The fans that were available werent even turned on. The pool was wonderful. It didnt feel over crowded at all. There was truly plenty of room which was very nice. The manatee bar was great, great bar tenders, the pool stools are a little low for the bar. The other recommendation I have is to offer another type of beer. Presidente was not good. You shouldnt have to be VIP to get top shelf liquor and another selection of beer. I felt as though I paid a lot to be on this trip, and could not afford to spend any more on the VIP package. All in all we had a fabulous trip and it all worked out well. We hope to go back some day.

I was disappointed in the ocean where we stayed because the water wasn't clear where you could see the bottom and there were a lot of rocks that hurt your feet. We like to spend the majority of our vacation time in the ocean and we literally spent no more time than 10 minutes in it. Of course that is not their fault that the ocean is like that there, plus there was a lot of sea weed and they can't help that either! Luckily the pool was super nice and big and we spent a lot of time there. I would definitely go there again but I would like to try the Caribbean side next time because the water is much more beautiful there. We loved it though, I don't mean to sound negative!

This was our second time to stay here and we loved it! The staff at Dreams Punta Cana go out of their way to make you feel like family! We will continue coming back for this reason. The food here was excellent. We went somewhere else last year and were miserable! You dont have to make reservations for restaurants here. The rooms are a little dated, but they are very clean. We were only in our room to sleep. Ana Pena went above and beyond to make our stay extra special! She is the reason that we will keep returning here! Theres also Simon, Llino & Eusebio(bartenders in the preferred lounge), Benjamin Franklin, Franklin, and Ramon just to name a few that went out of their way to make our stay awesome! The grounds keepers even would say hello to us every time we passed by! The people who leave negative reviews about dreams must be impossible to please is all we can figure out! This is our home away from home!

Our room and especially the bathroom was very small but clean and loved the swim out. The sales pitch was very intense. We found ourselves avoiding the main building to avoid the ladies trying to get us to dinners etc. Some occasions we had to be rude and walk away because they were so persistent.

And insulted toboot!
neveragainEssex, Essex
Wed Jul 18 09:59:11 EDT 2018
At private wedding function I left my hat on floor behind my chair. One of the two waiters picked it up whilst I was dancing nearby so I gave him thumbs up thinking he would put it somewhere better for me. At the end of the reception, no hat, no staff. After reporting the missing hat several times to several people during the following week, it was the last day of my holiday that the matter was resolved. The Sunday duty manager said one of our guests must have stolen it (13 and over half were children) and the consierge manager said no Dominican woman would wear that hat even in carnival. She had never seen a photo of the hat but I’m sure Jasper Conran would be interested in her comments. I was given a ‘wp’ payment of $75. The hat, which I showed them the ticket for cost £65. So I was short changed by about $10 but the insults were free!

We have just returned from a beautiful vacation/son's wedding. There were a few issues that we had within the resort. The first night we arrived there was an issue with documents not being forwarded to the hotel in time so my daughter was not allowed in without a $300 hold. Unfortunately this was not explained well and they asked for the hold to be on a credit card. With a credit hold this does not get released the next day so this would have caused an issue. (Turns out they only imprint the card...we found this out the next day from our AirTransat rep) While arguing back and forth because my daughter was an add on later to her father and grandmothers room they refused to let them in either. This is now 2 hours after our arrival and at this point is 9pm and they also won't allow them to eat. We finally gave them $300 cash and they allowed them in but forgot to get her a cot to sleep on. This was remedied the next day but the customer service was terrible.We also had an issue with the vendors being allowed to sell in the resort. Not so much that they can sell but they can harass you non stop. We hadn't even been to our rooms yet and they were stopping us and really harassing us to buy jewellery and cigars etc. Not letting us by to get to our rooms. The vendors told us they are only there once a month but 2 days later they were back again. They are right outside the lobby so you cannot avoid them at all. Again they would not let us by. They would continue to step out front of you. I expect this in town or on the public beaches but not in a resort that we paid dearly for to be at for relaxation! This was very disappointing for us. It didn't stop with vendors either. The hotel staff harassed us every morning to try out a time share for a new resort. The only other issue we had was the pool hours. It was closed by 6pm. The temperature was still low 30's at this time and when you've been out all day on excursions it would be nice to be able to swim when you get back. The beach was not an option as it was either too full of seaweed that they tried to keep plowed off the beach but the water was full of it too or it was too rough and you weren't allowed out.None of these issues ruined our vacation/wedding but we will not return to this specific resort.

My first experience with the Dominican Republic
Jamie M,
Wed Jul 18 07:15:10 EDT 2018
My partner and I arrived in the Dominican Republic on the 5th July. From the second we arrived, we got a warm welcome, although we had to spend the night in a separate hotel, we were upgraded by Dreams to a suite with a jacuzzi which was exceptional. The staff could not be more helpful, from the receptionists to the maids, everyone was always on hand to make sure your stay was the best it could be. With 7 different restaurants you could eat somewhere different almost every night and they were all top standard, although my fravourite had to be Himitisu. There are plenty of things to keep you entertained while your here, poolside entertainment, games, the excursions and the night time entertainment, you could never be bored. It was also my partners birthday while we were here, Larisa made it one to remember. She organised the decorations in the room, complimentary champagne and we even had dinner on the beach which was beautiful. This is the my first experience with this amazing country and it won’t be my last. I will definitely be returning to Dreams Resort in the future. From my experience of travelling to many places around the world, I have never got the first class treatment which I received from the staff at Dreams. If your looking for a hotel that has the whole package, this is definitely the place to go.

Dreams resort is one off the most friendliest places I’ve ever been too. The staff are completely incredible. I’ve been too places around the world, like South Africa, Florida etc ... and have never seen a more beautiful country than Dominican Republic. The hotel speaks for itself. It’s beautiful & family orientated. When we arrived from a 9 hour flight, we arrived to the lobby which is absolutely massive, the scenery around this hotel is amazing. We got to the reception which we were told that we had to wait for a room, then got put into a different hotel (sister hotel) were weren’t happy to tell truth, but we came back the next afternoon to be checked in & dreams resort Punta Cana upgraded our whole package, they put us into the preferred club which was unbelievable, they upgraded our room which I’ve never stayed in a nicer room in all my life when we got the room we finally unpacked and as I walked out on to the balcony there was a hottub. This was unreal. I couldn’t believe what they had done for us. The food is incredible also!, Many thanks to the staff and everybody involved putting in the hard work daily to keep everybody happy.

We stayed here with our 6 year old for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. The hotel was lovely. The pool is huge and there is plenty of space for swimming. The rooms were a good size and cleaned every day. There was a large variety of food which was all tasty. My daughter went to the kids club which she loved, she really enjoyed movie night on the beach. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. There are lots of activities on offer. The grounds around the hotel are beautiful with lots of plants and wildlife. There is easy access to the beach. The evening entertainment was enjoyable every night, but is on a weekly rotation. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again.
