Wedding Reception Washout 2019
We stayed and had our wedding at Dreams Spa Punta Cana. In regards to the resort we felt safe and not one of our guests were ill. The staff are hard working, accomodating and friendly. The tourist were also very friendly. We had the honeymoon suite, which was a great size, the rooms definitely needed updating and there were several maintenance issues, if it could be dealt with by the staff they responded quickly. The TV reception was poor and there was only a few power outlets. They offered limited food and drinks at room service but you received it promptly. Preferred club facilities wasn't beneficial for us as we don't drink lots of alcohol and the beach cabanas were only for those members from preferred club so you couldn't share it or be with family and guests if we used it. Wedding at Dreams We spent a year and a half planning our wedding via email with our wedding planner Paola Urena, this was not ideal as information was sometimes missed, confusing and often not detailed. I was fortunate to have the same wedding planner for the whole time but unfortunately she wasn't the best. I would recommend not to have a wedding at Dreams for the following reasons; 1.The wedding planner doesn't make it personal enough as there are many weddings at Dreams and they treat you like a business. 2. The guests at the wedding were on time but the Judge was late leaving less reception time. 3. There was heavy rain and a power cut at the wedding reception which caused a health and safety issue with the floor being wet and for the last two hours guests couldn't dance and enjoy themselves. 4. The response was slow from the wedding planner and staff to clear the wet floor. 5. The wedding planner was not forthcoming in reassuring us or guests about the situation. 6. The food served was very poor and children's meal uneatable. 7. There was no backup plan to prevent rain coming in or a generator or even proper lighting in place as a result of the blackout. 8. The wedding planner failed to put out all my wedding favours, which were left behind. On the positive side, the ceremony went well and Dreams is a beautiful place to have a wedding. The photographer Juan Carlos from Adventure Photos was great orgainised ,flexible and accommodating producing beautiful photos, they provided a top service from start with excellent communication to finish. The compensation offered was not much when you think about the hard work of wedding planning for so long, the stress/ anxiety,the huge disappointment and the lost of good memories which can never be replaced.. ☹️
Very average older resort
We stayed 7 days with my husband and 2 toddler girls. This was our 6th all inclusive trip but first time at a Dreams resort. I will say that while we still had fun at the pool, beach, and nightly shows, there was a lot the resirt left us disppointed with. Food was very average. The buffett food was basically the same every day. 3 of the restaurants were either for adults only, kids >10, or preferred club members only, 1 was an outdoor pizza place where the pizza was dry, tasteless, and lukewarm. This left us with only 2 restaurant options for dinner, meaning we spent most of our 7 days dining at the buffett for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. The buffet had no quality meat options even for dinner, only chicken and pork every day - no beef, no steak, no shrimp like we are used to seeing at other resorts. Only positive thing was sushi was available every day. Nonetheless, on day 5 of our trip we were pretty tired and disgusted with eating the same food over and over again. Even the outdoor grills had limited options, basically only burgers and hot dogs - whereas at other resorts they had so much food outside by the pools, options like ribs, fries, chips and guac, etc. The burgers and hot dogs at the grills by the beach and pool were not good quality, even the kids did not want to eat them. Also, at the buffett and the restaurants, wait times to get anything were long - one time by the time I received ketchup for my omelette, I had to ask 2 people, wait 15 mins, and ended up eating the omelette cold. Same with waiting for coffee or orange juice, many times we finished our meals by the time we got our drinks delivered. The kids club looked great in pictures, but the rules are dumb. Kids with parents are not allowed for freeplay except for 1.5h in the AM - otherwise the club playgrounds and pirate ship pool with slide were empty all day yet our kids couldn't use them unless we signed them up for the 9am to 9pm club which is for >3 yrs old and where they are without parents all day. My 1yo was too young and 3yo would definitely not stay away from us all day long so the kids club facilities looked good from behind the fence but we couldn't use them. At other resort we stayed, the kids pools and slides we free for all. Needless to say, the kids were a little bored by the end as we could only use the main pool and beach, and not much else to do. Finally, our room and bathroom were both small and old/smelly. All the public bathrooms, esp in lobby smelled lik
Please just don’t...and I am still here
I have been to many AM resorts as a UVC member. This place has had the worst service and rooms. This place is falling apart! Serious maintenance issues here. The ceilings are bowed. The pool is so shallow and hot water all the time. You can’t cool off. The restaurants have no air conditioning. The buffet is so hot that I could not stand it. It is set up for AC but told not working and hasn’t in 2 YEARS! Wtf! Those poor workers! You sit there and drenched from the heat. We ordered room service last night. My daughter opened the door and he threw it open and set the tray down hard! And then left without a word and slammed the door! At night too. I got preferred club. No turn down. Had to switch rooms due to AC not working. No consistency. The food is just not good. Thank God I haven’t got sick yet! No AC means everything sits hot. Just terrible. The only nice thing so far is when I went to the beach and got a Bali bed and did get drink service there. If you are sitting anywhere else forget it. So if you don’t mind hot water shallow pools and sweating your a$$ off at dinner and slow service then this is the place for you. Not up to AM standards. I feel like I wasted my money! The Now Onyx is waaay better! I am trying out all the AM resorts and for a Dreams this is the worst! And I was in the Sunscape Bavaro that closed down. 😂
What a wonderful time was had by all!!! We all miss it already and I am home 36 hours!!!
We had 50 people with us for a family vacation recently and had the best time. The staff went over the top to accommodate us. There are so many things to do there and they constantly had activities for everyone!!!! We would love to go back and it was well worth the money and we all loved our special waiter Simon!!!
Visit this place with my sister
I stood in this place for the very 1st time and i loved it! The staff, the food, the good vibes. It was soo worth it! Definitely coming back with my kids and mom. Shout ot to the best entertainment staff, la peque, Scrappy, edwin, Jenkely ( the dj) El chocolate, black dave. And the best hostess, Juana. This place was the best! Going to miss them all!
