Wonderful Hotel & Staff
This was our first vacation to the Dominican Republic and would definitely go back to this property!! We have been to other all-day inclusive resorts in Jamaica, Turks & Caicos, Aruba and have traveled to many other islands and this resort is definitely in my top 3. I can't say enough about how friendly and accommodating the staff was. Everyone worked so hard to make sure we had everything we needed, and to ensure we had a great time!! Franklin our Butler was the best!! The staff at the restaurants and bars were super friendly. The activities staff was the best of any resort we've been to. Our housekeeper was absolutely wonderful. One day I even left the safe open by mistake with money, passports, jewelry in it and when we came back to the room there was a note that she locked the safe for us along with the person to call to get back into it. Nothing was missing!! Also, never felt unsafe. This property and Punta Cana in general was a great vacation!!
A nice holiday but did not meet expectations
We booked Dreams Punta Cana after our friends stayed here twice several years ago and also us having stayed at Dreams La Romana 2 years ago. Sadly this holiday has not been on a par with the La Romana one. On arrival our rooms were allocated and despite my request for interconnecting rooms we were put in 2 rooms along and across the corridor from each other in block 9. The air conditioning smelt musty but I was expecting this, there was poor lighting in the bathroom in room 9104 but my Sons room 9123 was ok. We requested a room change and was told that interconnecting rooms would be available the next day in block 8. I asked for rooms on a higher floor as it had been noisy the first night and after some searching was told that there would also be 2 rooms in block 3. We choose block 3 as the rooms were on the second floor overlooking the pool, the air con was not musty and the rooms seemed fresher and not in poor condition. I have to say there is no way this hotel is full to capacity, more like 50-60% full so am not sure why the room change was so arduous? The one great thing is there are plenty of sun beds and shade at the moment due to the hotel being quieter. There has been an increase in guest numbers over the past few days but still not full. The beach is lovely, a bit of seaweed but they work hard to clear it. The Wi-fi is poor and I mean poor! Our rooms have hardly any Wi-fi so the unlimited connectivity is a bit of a joke. It is a bit hit and miss around the rest of the resort but could be better. The Portofino restaurant has been closed since we arrived and no one seems to know when it will reopen but they did offer to cook us anything off the menu and have it delivered to any restaurant of our choice. As for the restaurants we have tried so far in 5 nights, the first night apparently the steakhouse was full at 8.30pm and no one could tell us how long the wait was so we went to the Trattoria. The service was ok in there, the waiters filled our glasses, my son and myself had our pizza quite quickly but my husband had a wait meaning we had finished before his food arrived. They were very apologetic though and service in this restaurant by the waiters has been the best so far. The second night we went earlier to the steak house. The waiter did not bring bread to the table, the main course arrived before we finished our starter, the steak was cooked nicely but lacked any flavour. The waiters are too rushed in this restaurant to offer what you would normally expect in a restaurant. The third night we tried oceana, again no bread brought to the table until our main course arrived, the waiter then just put 3 plates on the table and just threw bread rolls 2 of them then removed my plate leaving my husband and son with a number of bread rolls each and myself with none! my husband ordered surf and turf which arrived with no shrimp! Drinks service poor again, the staff either do not know what they are doing or else there are not enough staff to cope with the tables, and remember this hotel is not at capacity. We tried Mexican night at the buffet, food mediocre, table service appalling! I had to hunt down a waiter to ask for drinks to be brought to our table! The breakfast is good with plenty of choice, but getting served coffee at the table is again an ordeal as no acknowledgement from waiter that you are at the table! I have not noticed a plague of birds swooping over food as some reviews suggest, ok a few small fruit flies around the fruit station but everything else is very hygienic. The swim up pool bar had maintenance going on so was partly boarded up until the other day, but sadly that end of the pool looks very shabby, the island on the middle just looks cheap and unkempt. I’m sure in past years it was lushly planted, some of the pool tiles are black with mould. There are just 2 pool mats which is not enough to go around the number of guests. The entertainment team are fantastic. Every day they work so hard. I have enjoyed yoga, pool aerobics, Zumba and the pool games are entertaining, water ballon fight yesterday was hilarious as was canoe racing. The daily themed poolside lunch and entertainment is great. Evening shows area a bit amateur, but again that team work so hard from early morning til 2am sometimes in the disco dancing with guests. You can not fault their enthusiasm and always smiling. Chocolate is highly energetic and great fun! Overall so far it’s been a bit disappointing in some aspects and my expectations were higher partly as I say due to recommendations and our own previous Dreams resort experience, but it’s not dreadful, you will have a nice time, just don’t expect ultimate luxury. Hopefully service in restaurants will improve over the rest of our stay. Other than that we are having a pleasant and relaxing stay.
I just had my graduation party at Dreams and I have 0 regrets! Papa Smurf was the best part of the entire trip! Him and his entertainment crew made you feel like the star of the show every time they saw you! If I could, I’d go back every week!
Stayed at the hotel with my boyfriend for our summer holiday. The hotel was overall excellent and the food was fabulous. The entertainment was amazing, especially ‘Chocolate and Papa Smurf’ 👍🏽⚽️. The day activities topped it off! Would recommend and 100% come back.
