Like most Dreams resorts, the Dreams La Romana delivers with excellent service in a fun, yet relaxed tropical setting. This resort is great for families and couples alike. A great staff keep guest pampered and relaxed all vacation long. Lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. A definite recommend for La Romana.
Location: On a white sand beach, near the fishing village of Bayahibe, 20 minutes from La Romana airport, 75 minutes from Punta Cana airport.
We visited dreams La Romana this time last year, and we're back again. We are here with our 6 yr old daughter in the preferred club. We have again been looked after by all the wonderful staff here. Catherine at the preferred reception sent some cupcakes to decorate with a home made card 💖. Catherine has been incredibly helpful to us, along with the other reception team.Cristina and Amelia at the preferred pool bar are angels at supplying endless amounts of cocktails. The lovely Williams and his staff at the Seaside grill for great service for breakfast and lunch. Staff here really can't do enough for you. The grounds are amazing and spotless.Trips... We booked 2 trips through Scruba caribe.... with Pedro. Now some previous reviews mention these guys as beach sellers, which worried us last year.... BUT they are connected to the hotel and are very good. Pedro was really helpful. We did soana island with them and they arranged for our friends staying at the Dominicus to come on the same trip. We also did Catolina island, this trip is a must. Thank you to the Dreams team for making this such an enjoyable holiday. We hope to see you next year !
My boyfriend and I travelled to Dreams in early June 2017 (the start of "wet season"). We booked through British Airways in the Jan sale - so we got a great deal.Upon arrival we were greeted with a glass of bubbly which was lovely, check in was pretty quick and the reception staff are lovely and welcoming. We were more than happy with our room - we did NOT go preferred club, so we were not expecting the extras that come along with it. Our room was pretty big and clean, with a good TV, mini bar (all inclusive which was amazing), large clean bathroom and comfy bed, Block 7 - easy access to everything.The food was great. My boyfriend enjoyed every meal in every restaurant we went in. My personal favourite was the Italian. I am a vegetarian so it was easier for me to eat in some places than others, but there was always something for me. I do think there needs to be more choice, but that's just being picky. The drinks were strong and the variety of spirits and cocktails were amazing. The all inclusive food and drink is a real selling point of this hotel - when they say all inclusive they really mean it. No added costs anywhere, and we loved the coco café for coffee and cake!! The beach was simply beautiful. I have read others say that it is small - I would disagree. For the time of year we travelled it was just perfect. Not busy at all, no issues with sunbeds (the hotel boast more sunbeds than guests). The sand was lovely and clean, the sea was pretty much clear and warm. The weather was great, we were expecting some rain, and we only had one day with rain, and even then it was a shower over in 10 minutes. Its a great time of year to travel to this part of the world. Beach bar and food was great too.We did the excursion to Soana Island which was amazing. Definitely worth it. We also did kayaking and snorkelling (once again, all included in the price). Snorkelling us a MUST! We saw so many fish and even some star fish. The staff are great. We did get the feeling that they run on auto-mode most of the time, repeating the same things over and over. But that's not a criticism. They were always beyond polite and efficient. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, and I would come back again.
Still 2 days to go before returning home and all I can say is I'm so relaxed that I'm not sure I can get back into work mode! The resort is spotless, the staff are all so happy and polite. The only niggles I can come up with is the hilarity of the towels we get in the room. Some days it's 3 bath towels and no hand towels other days it's 1 hand towel and 2 bath towels - gives us a chuckle but not worth complaining about. The food has been lovely with the beef in the French restaurant a must ! There is no more waiting than you would expect at any all inclusive resort and obviously you will find some times are busier than others. At times the service at pool/beach bars is a little slow but hey it's all on Dominican time and it's not like you're in a rush to get anywhere. That brings me to the next bit - there isn't really much to do off resort without a bit of travel. But if you want to just relax and completely get away from everything this is the place to come to.

There were 63 of us that stayed at Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa beginning August 1, 2017. We found the hotel to be very dated. The ceramic floor was a pinkish color in the room. There were ants on the bathroom counter. The disco area smelled of sewer and the glasses, bar top and floor were sticky. It was not a mild smell - it was very strong. At least 15 people in our group ended up getting very sick. So sick that we couldn't leave the room. We found ourselves afraid to eat or drink thereafter. We found the staff to be unfriendly. Many times we would order drinks and the glasses they were served in would be chipped. Our vacation was booked through Apple Vacations. Many of us commented that we were surprised Apple would associate with this resort. Given the fact such a large number of us became so sick (when I say sick I mean laying on the bathroom floor in such stomach pain, vomiting) - I would not recommend this resort to anyone.I have been to many places outside of the country and have never had this experience. If you watch the bartenders closely at the bar, you will see they basically "dip" a glass in water and refill. Cleanliness is not their thing! I will say the beach area was nice. The swim-up bar closes early and we noticed that it took a very long time to get a drink and it wasn't THAT busy.Bottom line. We cannot say what made so many of us so sick. I note now in reading other reviews others had the same experience. When there is just two of you staying at a resort, one may just think, they just had "bad luck" and they got something. Given there were 63 of us and we communicated - it is just frankly unacceptable under any circumstance. We have contacted Apple regarding our experience and we are waiting to hear back.
