Paradise

Beautiful complex. Staff are outstanding and work so hard. Room nice maybe slight updating needed which I believe is soon to be done. Every Resturant offered excellent food. Spa was the best experience I've ever had and worth every penny as it's a extra cost something for everyone here

Nice hotel with ok beach

Very nice and clean hotel. Very good food in restourants. Beach is blue water but not clear. White sand. Alot of moskitos in night so you need to use spray from bags. Good entertaiment. You can win funny money and exchange on prizes. Nice rooms.

Great resort

My wife and I and our friends just finished our stay at Dreams La Romana. Great resort, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was great, lots of options. Best part was snorkeling just off the beach. Junior at the pool bar took great care of us too!

Wish I could rate it as a 4.9*

Our travel agent worked very hard to get the appropriate rooms for us (4 families: wife and I + 3 grown children + their spouses + 2 grandchildren each). On arrival, we were put into the Preferred building, not the regular building that we had requested, and told we would have to pay and extra $1,400 if we wanted to use the amenities (4 rooms X $50/day X 7 days). I don't think so!!! When we got to our rooms, wife and I had 2 double beds for the 2 of us, Son #1 with 4 people had 1 king bed, Son #2 with 4 had a double (needed 2 more beds), Daughter with 4 needed 1 more. I understand this might be an oversight by the front desk. HOWEVER - it took 3 phone calls (from 4 pm to 9 pm) and still no extra beds. Finally, I had to go, in person, to the reception desk to get some action - not a great start to a vacation!! Also, the daily newsletter that is supposed to be delivered to each room in the evening, was not received for the first 4 days. When I finally realized this was a service we were supposed to get but were not getting, and had to speak to the reception desk, we finally got it for the last 2 days. In addition, it became a bit of a joke guessing how many towels would be left each day. One day there would be 4 bath sheets & no hand towels, the next day there would be 1 bath sheet & 3 hand towels. Very inconsistent. Having said all this, and having gotten through the first day, the rest of the vacation was excellent. The restaurants were outstanding with a great variety of food, even for the grandchildren (ages 4 to 11). The grounds were incredibly well maintained and clean. The evening entertainment was also fantastic. The New Years Eve entertainment was "over the top". It is the first time I have ever seen the day time activity staff also doing the dancing etc in the theatre in the evening. No professional groups that go from resort to resort as I have found in other places. They are to be commended. I realize every resort has its "lounge hogs" - the ones that put their towels on the lounges at 6 am, but don't arrive until 1 pm. Dreams was no exception. However, at least on the beach area where we spent most of our time, there were plenty on lounges and shade to go around. The activities around the pools and the beach for children were the best I have ever seen. There's a trampoline in the ocean, an inflatable slide in the pool and a bungee/trampoline at the activity centre. The noon time "Foam Party" on the beach was unbelievable for all ages. Our family had a great time and the irritations of the first day quickly went away.I realize the DR is not known for great snorkeling. And this resort was no exception. It can not compare to Cozumel, Curacao, or Kauai. The area around the resort had an underwater visual distance of about 2 feet at the beach and about 4 feet on the west side of the pier which contains lots of jagged coral. They say there is better diving/snorkeling on day long trips.

Great Trip!

Just back from 5 days at Dreams La Romana. Very much enjoyed stay in the Adults only Preferred section. Location was outstanding - beautiful beach/coast. 45 min. drive from Punta Cana airport with easy transport options available. Facilities were great! - rooms and property were both tastefully done and extremely well maintained. Staff - also great. Staff members were accommodating and helpful. Clearly, message was to help guests whenever possible. Preferred - Were definitely benefits of staying in preferred areas - quieter, private concierge service, access to restaurants and beach area not available to everyone in resort.Where to stay -- resort consists of 7 buildings. Preferred areas are on the outside - buildings 1, 5 and 7. Main area open to all is located between bldgs 3 and 4 (I think), which is where there are activities, music, etc. We were looking for something on quieter side so away from this area was important.One significant weakness - the food. We ate in all but one of the 7 or 8 restaurants (didn't try 'Japanese' restaurant). Unfortunately, every single one was consistently mediocre - Mediterranean, French, Italian, seafood, etc. For a facility that clearly has top-notch service industry expertise, was very surprising that they would not have had better food. Among other things, seems that they had no quality control of any kind.
