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.
Very relaxing trip from Dreams La Romana, took our three kids, ages 10,9, and 6. Good variety of food at the individual restaurants, favorite restaurant was Portofino and we appreciated that each restaurant had a distinctive flavor from the buffet. Rooms were clean, well maintained. The resort was turned into the Dreams about a decade ago, and I think the property has a mix of older and newer rooms. Property itself is very well maintained and the beach is lovely, with very fine white powdery sand which my children enjoyed.Staff was overall excellent, could tell they worked very hard. Great staff, lots of memorable characters from Edie Murphy to Pablo Picasso. We received wonderful service from our concierge and staff. Sofiya, Chester, and Moise always took care of us and our kids. There was a great yoga instructor there from South Brooklyn and a wonderful woman who cut fresh fruit on the beach before lunch. Kids enjoyed the large pools, warm waters, pedal boats and sailing the Hobie Cat. I need to also mention Andreas and Ricardo from the Scuba Caribe who maintained the watersports. PADI certification seems to be well instructed, we hope to come back next year for certification. There are two good dive sites nearby, including the sunken Atlantic Princess. Snorkeling right at the resort is possible, but the fine sand prevents really good visibility near the beach. We never felt there were any major shortcomings, although there are hints of uneven service, missed food orders and some inattention to allergies. I think staff training regarding allergy information and ingredient lists at the buffet would be very helpful. It would also be nice to develop more biking and jogging trails around the facility.
The rooms were clean could use some updating but there was so much to do, lots of activities where staff was engaging everyone. Pablo Picasso made it very fun for us and the 2 other families we were traveling with. He was AWESOME! We went on a few excursions (boat trips) he recommended and they were great.
We stayed at the Dreams in March for a relaxing week in the sun and that's exactly what we got.We didn't upgrade as were only there a week and definitely didn't regret it. Our room (block 5) was spacious and comfortable, with a sea view including daily towel art from our maid! There was enough choice from the al a carte restaurants too. We didnt feel we missed out.The resort was spotless and the staff so friendly. The beach waitresses made sure you always had a drink in hand!The fact you have no limit on how many times you go to each a la carte and dont need to book is a massive bonus from an all inclusive. As is the no plastic bracelets to wear for the week!!Would definitely recommend for a week of chilling out in the sun.
The resort was beautiful and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful from Luis who brought our bags to the room, Maria who cleaned our room every day and did an excellent job, Kendall and Mama Juana on the entertainment team who were great. Our three kids played a lot of volleyball and loved it. The pools were really nice and the beach was beautiful. The resort needed more umbrellas on the beach. It was very hot. The water was three different shades of blue. The food was very good. At night the resort was gorgeous with all the lights. Would love to go back.
We stayed at Dreams La Romana for 10 nights 11-21 April. Absolutely beautiful. The weather this time of year is in the 90s and although we had the odd but of rain and thunder the temperatures still remained high. We booked into the preferred family club which was well worth doing and we had our own concierge. Its more quieter than the main pools. I would recommend you take dollars and not peso as it is a little confusing trying to work out the amounts and everything is sold in dollars on site. The staff here are very welcoming and will go out of there way to accommodate you. The rooms are big and airy with air conditioning. Ours was immaculate and there was nothing for us to fault. In the bathroom shower gels, shampoos, toothpaste and toothbrush are all provided with a hairdresser and incense burners too. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept well the entire time. Wifi is provided through out the hotel ans onto the beach. You get a wide choice of food with 8 different restaurants. The Italian and the French prefer for long trousers to be worn by male guests. The seagrill restaurant was amazing especially if you get to dine on the decking area right on the sea. Oceana restaurant was lovely but mainly fish. The only non fish item was a beef fillet which I must say was cooked to perfection and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed it. The world cafe is the main area for eating and you have an extremely wide choice of food, from basic chicken and chips or plain pasta to more extravagant food. There is so much choice sometimes you just overeat just to try new things. Down on the beach, at Barefoot grill, there is a boat which is full with fresh vegetables for you to snack on followed by a BBQ of burgers and hot dogs which i must say tasted amazing. Lunchtimes we were able to order our food with a member of staff who would bring is out to us whilst we were sunbathing around the pool. There is a Butler serfvice if you require too but I think you have to have the elite suite. There is an adult preferred club at one end of the site which i must say looked amazing, unfortunately having a child with us prevented us from entering this club. We went on two excursions, one was the outback safari which was brilliant, the tour guide and the driver kept us entertained the whole time and it was a real eye opener as to how the proper people of this country live. We also visited a family who showed us how they produced coffee and coconut oil. Again this was a grounded insight into the lifestyle of the local people. The other trip we did was a Carribean Cruise to Saona Island - do it - it was unbelievable!! we got taken to a biggish speed boat where we were able to swim/snorkel with the fishes in the sea. We then zoomed over to a sand bank in the ocean which came up to my chest/ Here we were able to see starfish and relax for 1/2 an hour. From there we went to the island which is beautiful! watch out when you're in the sea as you may step on small pieces of coral which can hurt your feet. We then had a Lobster dinner with pork chops and chicken from the BBQ, prior to this we had octopus salad with bread and a pasta dish. After the BBQ we had another hour to stay and chill on the beach before being taken by water taxi to an awaiting catamaran. This ride home was so enjoyable, the staff here got you all dancing. They do like their rum and cokes - don't blame them|| We had our 13 year old with us and she loved it, They do have a kids club and a teen area at the hotel but we didn't use it at all. This hotel is located on the caribbean ocean side of the island where the sea is calmer and warmer as opposed to the Atlantic side of the island.We really loved this hotel and are thinking of returning to this particular one again in 2019.
