Customer Ratings & Reviews
TripAdvisor Traveler Rating14157 reviews
Stayed at this resort for a week and is the best resort I’ve stayed at in Punta Cana. Upon arrival, check in was quite smooth and there was a room immediately available to us, which is not always the case. And, after a long trip, we were immediately escorted by staff to the buffet to ensure we had an opportunity to eat lunch as the buffet was about 2 minutes from closing. After eating we walked to the room (building 6, 1st floor) and our luggage arrived shortly thereafter. Most guests are very friendly and will start conversations. There was one incident of inappropriate behavior by a guest who was immediately escorted away. We never saw the individual again so I assume the person was completely removed from the property. But this is a property that has something for everyone. Though it is one continuous pool, there are very different ambiances at various locations so if you want quiet you can have it. And if you want more energetic you can have that too. Beach was always spotless. The entertainment staff is amazing and work very hard with activities starting daily around 8am and going until about 11pm. The activities include everything from yoga and CrossFit to hula contests and bocce ball. Sign up and participate. No experience required and all skill levels can do just about everything. And, you can see the personalities of the various crew. We had a great time with Chocolate, Scrappy Doo, Papa Smurf, Pucca, Fanny, Ben Franklin, and the professional dancers (Henrry, Jose Manuel, and La Pequeñita). Get up and dance, and have a blast. You won’t regret it. Food everywhere from the buffet to the a la carte restaurants was great. Wait staff will make recommendations if asked. Buffet has large variety. A la carte restaurants have small menus but that are true to theme. Remember that tips are accepted and greatly appreciated by all involved - waitstaff, housekeepers, bartenders, entertainers, bell boys, etc. Great service will only get better. And, say “hola” to everyone. They work non-stop to make sure the property is clean and everyone enjoys their stay. A little kindness goes a long way. Perhaps the rooms could be updated a bit, but we were in the room just to bathe and sleep so not an issue.
On arrival we were shown a room overlooking a building site, then shown an upgraded room but we were told we’d have to pay $750..what a joke...eventually we were found a room in block 1..nice, very clean and quiet..hotel grounds superbly kept, our room was cleaned daily and again to perfection...the food was average, it was never piping hot, Luke warm at best, the Italian was a joke due to ridiculously small portion sizes that would fill a kid up let alone an adult!..the Asian was poor and for 2 days after had the trots and felt sick so never went back..the Oceania restaurant was ok, along with the steakhouse and the French..after a few days we met the Oceania boss Humberto, he was a credit to the hotel, he made sure we were looked after and made sure our food Was hot, a lovely guy, they should look after him because without him the restaurant would implode, fact...beach great, a few sellers but never pushy, the preferred club lounge was great to, great drinks served with a smile and professionalism..we’ll done to Adrian and his team....the water that came out of the ta ps in your room was horrendous, you couldn’t bath in it as it was a horrible brown colour god knows what you would have caught, a disgrace considering the price of the holiday, I’m well traveled and never seen water like that in a hotel!!!..Dreams should have been called nightmare....we won’t be going back
Love this Resort.
Me wife and I really loved this resort. Upon arrival, check in and escort to our room we were introduced to best mango we ever tasted at a carving station right in the middle of the resort. Once we got to our room I classify the room as being g average but since we were near the beach there was a constant breeze that kept me relaxing on the patio when ever I was at the room. The food options were plentiful and I was Introduced was I discover was dominican aqua Chile, because I've have it several time in Mexico, but the Dominican version is superior. The entertainment was very good at night with all the shows they performed, especially the bachata dancing lessons at night. Meet very nice people from many place in this world. Cant wait to go back.
Let me start by saying we went to this Dreams 13 years ago and was our favorite of all the resorts we have been to (about 12). Well they did not disappoint this time. What an awesome time, food was excellent both at buffet and ala carte restaurants. Most of guests were nice although their were some who would stand and argue and mad at lady at Hamitsu cause it was a 20 minute wait time for table and an hour for grill show, dammed people your on vacation what the hell you in hurry for. Now on to the staff check in fast and smooth although they hand you off to the time share people we just said we were going to our room and no problem. Now everyone that works in restaurants and bars are extremely happy and will do anything for you and if you tip them they are very grateful big shout out to Happy Happy Simon Salvador and so many more can't remember their names. Big thanks to all bar staff especially Carlos at lobby bar this guy takes alot of pride in every drink he makes and anyone who went there when he was working went back every night. Now on to the entertainment staff Rucco (hope got that right) Eddie Murphy Ben Franklin Chocolate & Papa Smurf you guys made the whole week extremely enjoyable. And to all you people these people work hard get up and do some of the stuff with them its a hoot. And to you people that are writing bad reviews shame on you this is a nice place and the staff are exceptional. Do like me and when the ask you "how are you doing" (which everyone will do) answer EXCELLENTE like me . The rooms were nice we only shower and sleep in them but bed was as comfortable as one at home and every day cleaning staff made it spotless one day ran out of beer in fridge left a note in Spanish for beer and that evening had 6 pack in fridge. Take the time to say Hola to all the workers gardeners maids guy mopping floors they will always smile back at you and give you an Hola back. Go enjoy this resort it is best one I have stayed at ever
Just finishing 2 weeks in this hotel. We have used Dreams in La Romana before so came here as knew what to expect. The grounds are amazing and the beach beautiful. The rooms are large and clean with everything you need. We did have to chase the maid a few times for forgotten items. Your choice of room depends on what you like. We prefer quiet rooms so were pleased to be in block 6, near beach but not facing pool. The staff are amazing but short staffed in bars. The amount of activities offered is excellent with some good extras like aqua bikes, mini trampolines for the jump class and blow up water toys for the kids. We haven't got kids but their facilities looked amazing. My only gripe is the food. I know it's all inclusive but the quality was poor. Don't be fooled by speciality restaurants!!! Presentation was brilliant but taste poor. The buffet was probably best. We also wish they had the activity programme on a 2 week loop. Everything was the same in week two which was disappointing - especially for the shows. Value for money amazing.
