Relaxation to the max
If you want relaxation this is the place to go!! The people were very kind and everyone was welcoming! Chocolat was the best on the entertainment staff at getting everyone involved in games! Go with him and just have a good time! Jose in the World Cafe was such a great waiter! He always had a table ready for us and was happy to help with anything! The rooms were dated but very clean! We had no trouble with anyone and would definitely return!
Friendly staff, but..
Went on my honeymoon, overall had a great time. We specifically loved staff member Emilio, he was friendly and very attentive. Cristina and seaside grill staff gave excellent service and the food was delicious. We also were thankful for James with RCI who was very friendly and helpful. Although the resort was beautiful and staff was great we had a few nights ruined because of a large group of very inconsiderate and rude guests in our building. As I said initially though, we had a great time overall.
Yes, Spanish is the local language. Use google translate on their reliable free WiFi to look up how to say more pillows por favor. The food is better than average but can be hit or miss. Steak at the hibachi was too tough to eat, but was like butter at the SeaSide Grill which had terrible service. Buffet is excellent. Angel is a great bartender. The dry side of the pool bar staff is great. Chocolat will insist that you join activities so surrender early and just have fun! This is not a PARTY PARTY resort but will leave you relaxed. There is no place to shop because it is far from Bavaro area. Rooms do need a refresh, but beds are comfortable. Housekeeping forgot towels one night. Biggest issue: we paid extra for late checkout but they turned off the room keys anyway. Major hassle to walk to reception to get that fixed and left me in a rush to pack.
I was missing my earphone & iPhone charger cable from my backpack they do not have honest people and don’t speak Englis
They hotel do not have more staff speaking English and we had a problem because my family is. Vegetarian could not get any good vegetarian food only boiled vegetables were there or with pork fat which is not a vegetarian dish
ALREADY PLANNING ANOTHER RETURN VISIT!!!
My most recent visit was just a week ago, & already I'm planning another trip to Dreams Punta Cana. My advice would be to ignore any detrimental reports that you read in the media. I have found them to be exaggerated., & never during my stay did I encounter any sickness because of what I had eaten or drank. Also the food at this resort is VERY GOOD., & never did I feel sick after eating a meal...NEVER. In fact, the meals were prepared in a very nice way. About the only thing I will comment on about a food not being very nice (looking) is the bacon at the World Cafe. It's very fatty in appearance., & not cooked to a crisp as one might expect. Naturally, I avoided the bacon although I did miss having it at breakfast. All restaurants were clean., no doubt about it. If someone finds fault with every restaurant, or doesn't find something suitable to eat, then they are far too picky. Staff at this resort go out of their way to make guests feel most welcome. They are welcoming to suggestions, & most certainly will do whatever they can to make guests happy. I don't think one can ask for more than that. I did find it odd that some of the bars do not have ginger ale. A lot of people enjoy rye & ginger as their drink of choice. Oh well..so I opted for rum & coke; no big deal. There are a few small pools with stagnant water. This needs to be addressed & corrected. Thank you Dreams Punta Cana for your hospitality. I shall visit extremely soon!
