The overall experience was Excellent. However, on this trip it seemed like they were hounding us more to do or buy more things. We know that a lot of people like to be entertained but we both work 80+ hours a week and just wanted to relax. But that wouldn't stop us from going back there again. The wait staff work very hard and long hours and still have a smile on their faces.

stunning grounds

Jan 09 2019
grounds are amazing. long pool...amazing. Loved watching the peacocks in their ponds. we were upgraded upon arrival...great treat. Room was spacious and clean. Was surprised the bartenders near the pool were NOT friendly at all. we were supposed to be upgraded and tried to get beach loungers but the guy taking care of the beds in this area was running a racket taking tips from non-privilege members and securing beds for them as well as chaise chairs that many times were never even used. The guy at the pizza oven made like "one' ...seriously "one " pizza at time when he could have made like 4 at once...there was always a wait for pizza. Really?? we were so thankful for the upgrade to the privilege lounge. AC, good booze, yummy snack bar, computer with wi-fi, friendly staff, clean bathrooms. We liked that we could eat lunch off the menu w/ our privedge access also. super friendly "professional " staff here as well as privilege lounge. Concierge at check in very efficient. I am usually 'not" a pool person but wow...amazing winding pool here.

We were extremely disappointed with this hotel. I would rate this a 2 star /4 red apples! The rooms need to be upgraded. Very old looking (similar to a Motel 6). Doors don’t close properly, you always have to slam your door to get it to close. The food quality and variety is horrible! The beach chairs are old, uncomfortable and kept breaking. Staff is friendly, but always pushy to sell you on items and upgrades. Don’t bother me, let me enjoy my vacation!

Mixed emotions
WILLIAM L.
Dec 24 2018
We were put into a family room, 2 rooms with connecting door. The arrival and treatment was excellent. First night, restaurant refused to serve us for unknown reasons. Plenty of time left during the hours, we were dressed appropriately, and no age requirements. The lady just refused. Next morning my daughter informed us her need smelled like urine. Upon removing all the sheets, we found a black plastic bag covering a urine stain. Housekeeping laid a bag over the urine instead of removing. We reported to front desk and all they did was change the sheets. Reported to the preferred club representative and again, only the sheets were changed. Reported it to the apple representatives on site, again nothing. After wasting my entire 2nd day dealing with this problem so my daughter wouldn't have to sleep on urine again I had to grab the house keeper, maid and head to make her smell the mattress. After she smelled it, she got her manager and she didnt understand the problem. I had to make her smell it as well, and she finally understood. A new mattress arrived 10 minutes later. Problem, I wasted an entire day of my vacation dealing with an issue that never should have happened. My daughter never should have slept in a bed covered in fresh urine, NASTY. Management did not seem real concerned and they did not want to compensate me for my time, effort, or my wasted day of my vacation. Very disappointed in this process and how they handled it. Felt as though they diminished this and ignored me.

Misleading info about children’s playground

My three year old grandson could not use the playground because his parents were told they had to sign him up for the daycare and could only be on the playground with him from 9-9:30 am. This was a big disappointment. They wanted to spend time with him on vacation .

Upgrade desprately needed in rooms
TRACI H.
Dec 07 2018
The rooms need to be updated. My mom fell getting out of the shower because it is too high. Half of the light switches did not work. THe room was very dark! I requested more lamps and was told no. The TV's were static on all channels or did not work. The fan had to be on high in order to keep the room cool and the fan was loud. If the rooms were upgraded/taken care of, I would have given higher stars. The maid did not clean the shower, this was known b/c of the left over shampoo/towel in stall. The pillow case in master bed was not changed, there was red lipstick on it and I do not wear red lipstick. GROSS!!!

The hotel is clean, and the grounds are beautiful. Complaints would be the other hotels in the area are new. Taking a shower was a chore to try and not get the floor wet because of the way it’s configured. Tv and coffee maker is out of date. Lastly the amount of money for anything extra is disappointing.

My husband and I traveled with another couple to Dreams Punta Cana resort. This was the first Apple Vacations 6 gold apple we tried vs 5 gold apples we have gone to in the past to see is there was a difference and would say, overall, there were some upgrades. We did not do Preferred and really didn't seem to miss anything by not doing so. It was the week after schools started back so might be worth it if at a busier time. It looked like the majority of Preferred beach lounge beds were open at any given time as well as the Preferred bar and restaurant. Some resorts have that "slight septic field smell" but we noticed that Dreams did not. We loved the flamingos that would walk among all the guests and also loved the Koi Pond. At night, all the light features were so pretty! We were on second floor of building 8 and had no problems with our room which was sparkling clean as well as the linens provided. Our friends were ground floor in building 9 and were happy also. If they had to choose, they would have taken a second floor room for the view. The buffet food was better than other resorts and we were very happy with the restaurants. We did go to each restaurant and could have eaten steak each night we were there which doesn't happen at most resorts. Service was great. Being nurses, we were so happy to see the requirement of hand sanitizer before entering any of the food areas. The only suggestion we had would be to put a low gate in the outside seating area of buffet. Many people took a shortcut through those open doors right into the dining area without being seated by staff or sanitizing. We have come to decide that at all resorts, the best quality liquor will be in the lobby bar so we just took our walks there for refills when we wanted a certain drink and got some exercise to combat all the food and drinks! Carolos made the best Whiskey Sours at the whole resort and Maria and Miguelina were so attentive there. Juana, Pedro and Wander were also so nice at the Baracuda Bar. We did tip at all the restaraunts, bars and for housekeeping. The pool was the best we have been to at all resorts. It was so long, that you could always find a spot that was quieter or more festive, depending on your mood. We could walk out of our building and be in the pool within a couple minutes. We did bring our own floaties but they had many available that week if we had wanted to use them. The beach was groomed regularly to clean up the seaweed but none of us swam in the ocean. We did take some walks each way to see other resorts beaches though. Our husbands enjoyed playing beach volleyball and found some good competition after the organized resort volleyball was done. Probably one of our best experiences was with Mieryi, our concierge. She greeted us the first morning and introduced herself and always wanted to know if we were happy or having an issues. She even decorated our door and had chocolates, champagne and rose petals set up in our room when she found out it was our 25th anniversary. She also set up a special dinner for us and our friends in the evening at La Trattoria. Such a smart, friendly, hardworking young woman! Overall, all the staff we so pleasant and wanted to make sure we were happy. We have said we would never try the same resort twice but left saying we would definitely go back to Dreams Punta Cana again because we had such a good time and enjoyed the resort.

Nice hotel

Wonderful staff and great room. I wish the pool was cleaner and you didn't have to go to the bar for water and drinks. Probably because it wasn't adults only, but no mini bar in the room. Also be ready to turn people down in the lobby constantly. There are vendors there everyday selling things and they are very pushy. Food wasDELICIOUS! It hey did not disappoint with the food. All in all great hotel.

Friendly staff

Everything about our stay was pretty great. Everyone was really nice and helpful and it made our visit to Punta Cana really memorable. My only complaint would just be that the food didn’t seem that amazing. It was definitely edible, but it didn’t seem to meet the standards of the rest of the resort.

More of a hotel feel than resort

Fairly crowded on our January trip. This resort is definitely kid friendly, with a fantastic play area. The food is ok, with the Bordeaux and Trattoria definitely the best of the dinner choices. Oceana and World Cafe we’re both very good for breakfast. Dress code did not seem to be strictly enforced. The evening shows are top notch! The language barrier caused some miscommunications, nothing major, just annoying. All in all, a decent trip. The Amstar representatives are extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and absolutely the most friendly group of individuals you will ever meet. They truly make you feel like family!

Overall good
