Compact, but very nice resort but rooms really need an upgrade
Sandra R.
Mar 15 2019
Beautiful pool and beach but rooms are seriously outdated. Desperately need better lighting and switches. There is a significant lack of outlets. USB ports by the beds would be an improvement. There are no dressers, only a small desk to store small things, no bench for your suitcase. For a Dreams resort we expected better rooms. Our room attendant did a great job. EVERYONE at the resort was extremely polite and friendly and worked very hard. The entertainment crew was great. More variety in the evening shows would be good and the magic show was not one of our favorites. The pool area is gorgeous and the floating mats are nice. The pool bars were busy but did a great job mixing drinks. Could use a few more chairs at the beach - there is space and it fills up quickly. The crew did a nice job working to keep the beach clear of the naturally occurring seaweed.

Very nice resort, beware of the timeshare pushers

Resort was very nice, clean, friendly staff, good service. Pool and grounds were beautiful and well cared for. Beach swimming area was small, walked down the beach to a better area. Beware of the timeshare pushers when you check in. They are your best friend until you tell them "No thanks" then they turn and say you're a bad person for not falling for their gimmick. Local vendors in the resort 1-2 nights a week were a little annoying too, but would leave you alone after a few "No's" and kept walking. Overall a very nice place to stay & relax, timeshare & vendors were the only negatives.
Customer Rating: 

A little overrated, but still a nice place.

Vacation at Dreams Punta Cana Resort
FRANK C.
Mar 01 2019
Beautiful grounds. Very welcoming staff. Delicious food!!! Nice Beautiful weather! Room was lovely. We had an ocean view(surprise) - very pretty! In the room we found the bathtub/shower very dangerous because the bathtub was so high and hard to get in and out of and no sfety bars to get in and out. Could be a fall waiting to happen for some. The room was bright and cheery and very clean. We felt that being in the first building nearest the ocean was wonderful but the walk was very long and hard on my husband. We eventually ordered a wheel chair just to go back and forth. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. We were disappointed in the beach initially but after the first day it was kept clean. We decided to go with the upgrade to Preferred Club member (for $350). We were definitely disappointed - no separate pool, limited beach area and not maintained very well, limited drink service on the beach, no food that we were aware of. We expressed our dissatisfaction to the resort manager and were refunded the $350. As a courtesy we were able to maintain the Preferred Club status during our entire stay. Very nice of management. The restaurants were good especially the Oceana and the Seaside Grill. Delicious! Overall we enjoyed our vacation but when we return to Punta Cana we will stay at the Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana Resort. The flight was fine and so nice to leave from Milwaukee directly to Punta Cana. No problems at all.

The stay at Dreams Punta Cana Resort and Spa was excellent. The food was delicious and the service was beyond expectations. When we walked into the resort Franklin took care of our check in and made sure our stay was going well throughout the week. We had terrific experiences in dealing with Nuniz in the Oceana and Wilson in The Worlds Cafe. Willy in the Preferred Membership section of the beach was courteous and he went out of his way to make sure everyones beach experience was the best. We also enjoyed the entertainment team which put on nightly performances, daily pool parties, and various other entertaining functions; namely Bunny and Chocolate. Our room service kept the fridge stocked and the room clean. Highly recommend.

We were placed in a room with 2 double beds (not queen-size, but double-size) which made it nearly impossible to sleep together. After 3 days of complaining (every day), we were finally moved to a room with a single king-size bed. After that, the accommodations were fine, but we did not enjoy the first 1/2 of the trip.

If you enjoy food at all, do not go here.

Resort Review
ASHLEY G.
Feb 16 2019
Our Resort was gorgeous and the service staff were amazing. However, there were staff who were constantly (multiple times/day) trying to get us to commit to going and touring another resort with them for "a free lobster dinner on the beach". We are fine being asked this once, but if we say no...that should be respected. Instead, after 12 hours of travel to get to the resort, we had to say No about 6 times before they would even allow us to get to our room! Some of the staff of the resort also constantly (multiple times/day) would chase me down and ask if I wanted to go to the spa. This was all very annoying and uncomfortable to me....they were clearly trying to get you to spend more money as they even told us they make commission so "you'd really be helping us out". We also did not like how the resort allowed people to sell a variety of different things (jewelry, paintings, sculptures, etc) on resort property. So you were forced to walk by these venders on your way to and from dinner. It would have been fine except that they don't sit there quietly while you walk by, they stop and talk to you and keep doing this night after night. It was too bad that we called all these people "the skarks" and tried very hard to avoid them but we couldn't.

Went with two other families. No towels at the pool. Single elevator was broken - AND - ROACHES ON THE BUFFET. We all stayed 2 days then moved to a new hotel!!! I gave it one star because “negative stars” wasn’t an option. An absolute hole!!

Best Vacation Ever!

Resort and staff was absolutely top notch! Highly recommend upgrading to the Preferred Club which includes use of the king size cabana beds on the beach, access to the Preferred Club building, premium drinks, food, etc... Get there early for the cabana beds though or you will not get one. Beach and pool had plenty of palapas. Resort had beautiful lush tropical landscaping. However, our room did not look anything like the photos, even as a Preferred Club guest. The look of the room was mediocre in decor, however we had a king size bed and it was very clean and maintained daily by staff.Only slept and showered there anyway so it was not a big deal to us. Food was amazing!! No reservations required for the specialty restaurants. First come, first serve basis. Never waited long at any of the specialty restaurants no matter what time we went. Did not care for the Italian restaurant though. Many guests that we talked to did not care for it as well. Resort has a world class spa that I highly recommend. Walkable to every location on the resort. Will definately be back to the resort. Would like to say thank you and great job by all the restaurant staff, cleaning people, and bartenders!

Everything seems to be GREAT, but look what really happened as soon as we arrived....

It’s our 3rd time in Punta Cana and by far this was the worst. We chose this hotel because of the reviews about the kids club. If you do some research you will find Dreams Punta Cana as one of the best hotels for kids in the whole Caribbean!! :( But let me tell you a little bit of our experience. We checked in with someone that was not really willing to explain how the hotel works. He didn’t even look at my eyes when offering to pay extra for a “exclusive club” that later on find out it is not that exclusive nor gives you huge benefits for the money. He didn’t tell me where our rooms were (just gave us the number), did not explain the restaurants details, and when asked how the breakfast was he answered.....”As usual “. So I had to ask when was starting, if it was buffet etc. The hotel grounds are very nice. Service at the pool is good. FOOD IS THE WORST. 3 of 4 of us had food poisoning during our stay as many other people you read in the reviews. So it seems this happens a LOT. Also, everything tastes the same. Same food all week at the buffet. Soft drinks and alcohol are cheap and waiters take for ever to serve you. Sometimes I even had to ask for 2 glasses of water so that I didn’t have to wait. it took 12 minutes to being me a glass of orange juice once. Normal is that you get the drinks when you're finishing your meal. Rooms are old , molded, smell VERY bad. but with good beds. Once in came back from the beach and the room was flooded and there was constant drain from the roof. We had to change rooms. This time we were lucky because they gave us a ground floor room. (First was in a second floor and no lift. With a baby in a cart, imagine the difficulty) Internet is bad depending on where you’re located. Sometimes Even no signal at all. When challenged the staff simply disappear instead of trying to hear your complains and solve them. Hotel is not cheap for the quality of the room , staff and food you get. There are dozens of better deals in Punta Cana . We will never go back to ANY DREAMS hotel ever.

This resort isn’t good it is excellenté!!!

This was NOT a Vacation - It was a continuous Sales Pitch
Teeks324, Buffalo, New York

It DOESN'T MATTER what I think about the food or my room. It DOESN'T MATTER what I think about the pool or beach. It DOESN'T MATTER what I think about the entertainment. What DOES MATTER is the constant barrage of people trying to sell me something on a DAILY basis! From the moment I stepped on the premises the salesmanship started. At the first encounter at check-in, after a long day of traveling, 30 minutes into the spiel I was told, "... but it's your vacation, do what you want." What I WANTED to do was lay by the pool all day and relax. This did NOT happen. Staff was constantly trying to sell me lobster dinners, spa treatments, excursions, etc. There is nowhere to hide. They are by the pool, the beach, the restaurants, and call the telephone in your room. I was even approached at lunch with food in my mouth but that did not stop them. Someone with a name tag was asking about our stay and then the word "excursion" came up! This was at the END of our trip. If that wasn't enough, the jewelry vendors block the sidewalk while trying to get to dinner. It was UNCOMFORTABLE. They are the most AGGRESSIVE of them all - Beware! I think Dreams Management should book a vacation at this Resort as a guest so they can experience the onslaught I just went through. I don't think they would ever come back. There are plenty of Resorts down there. They all have food, rooms, pools, beaches, and entertainment. My suggestion is to do your research and choose wisely. Your money is good anywhere.
