The Dreams Punta Cana is a wonderful resort for both couples and families. There is always a different show held every night, so you'll never be bored. There is also a plethora of activities by the pool to do during the day. The rooms are incredibly spacious and modern. Great attentive and pleasant staff. The pool area is massive, giving plenty of room for those who are looking to lounge poolside. The beach also has plenty of loungers available. However, the ocean has a tendency to be fairly rocky, making the pool a better option for those who are looking to wade in the water. Great a la carte items available. Make sure to check out the Japanese style teppanyaki, El Patio, Portofino restaurants while you're there.
A little late writing this as travelled in November 2015, but felt the need to say how great our stay here was! This has to be the best pool I have ever swam in. It's so much bigger than any picture could really show. We had a swim out room which was amazing, and I would totally recommend! Having your own sunbeds right by the pool was brilliant.The beach, while not a typical white sand caribbean beach (you'll need the other side of the island for that) is very beautiful, spacious and peaceful. We never had any problems getting a sunbed here.Food was generally very very good. Loved the lunch time pizza and burger options. Dinner at the Italian restaurant was also great! Breakfast offered a great selection of food. Just so much food everywhere, you could never go hungry!!Drinks were also good. I really enjoyed the cocktails on offer. Great drinks service by pool and even on the beach. Only negative really was that our room was rather noisy at night. The hotel attracts a lot of Americans in their 20s that have zero consideration for other guests when making their way back to their rooms late at night, shouting at each other right outside our door. This is most likely to a problem on the ground floor, as these corridors are also walkways to other room blocks. So if you don't want a swim out room, then definitely ask not to be on the ground floor!That aside, we loved this hotel and would very much like to return one day!If you fancy leaving the hotel, I strongly recommend a trip to Saona Island. We went with Amstar on their VIP package, where you go via Catamaran, and enjoy lobster on the beach. It was a really really good day out, and Saona Island is just beautiful.
This was a great resort. Eight of my girlfriends and I did a girls long weekend over the Memorial Day weekend at the end of May 2016. We booked separately. Some booked directly with the hotel, others through Bookit.My friend and I reserved our room through Bookit.com, as they had a great deal on a Preferred Club room and you can pay in installments. Bookit.com was awesome, the only issue was the resort and Bookit did not communicate well with each other. I called ahead of time to make sure there wouldn't be any issues checking in, as I did the booking and my friend would arrive before me. She had to wait a few hours before our room was ready and it took them awhile to find the reservations, but that was the only hiccup of the entire trip.I have to say, I've been to about 4 or 5 different all-inclusive resorts and typically the food is just meh. You can usually find something you like, but nothing really WOWs you. Dreams Punta Cana is the exception. This has to be the best food I have ever eaten at an all-inclusive resort.They have fresh grilled food out by the pools and beach. The speciality dining was superb. There wasn't a meal in which I was disappointed. We opted for the Preferred club and the lounge was awesome. That was the best bar in the place, the second best bar was in the lobby. I had a passion fruit mojito and it was so refreshing! The drinks are great, the rooms are clean. They are a bit cramped compared to some other rooms I've been in, but we were only in our rooms to shower, cool down or go to bed. They clean at least twice a day. It is so nice to come back to your room with your bed turned down. Such a treat.I got room service and they were so prompt. I ordered a sandwich with fries and the fries were actually hot when they arrived. We got bottles of champagne and wine delivered to the room. It was such a great time, not to mention the huge pool and the beautiful beach.The casino is kind of a joke. It's super tiny, but if you're in to gambling it will suffice. The resort is MASSIVE. You will get your work outs (steps) in, just from walking from your room to the restaurant, pool or beach. We took a Safari tour that was offered at their desk. The gentleman was super helpful, as it can be painful to have 8 women make decisions on a group outing. The trip went flawlessly and we got to see a lot of the island for a very good price, plus lunch and RUM! I would totally recommend this place to anyone. Such a great time and great value.
Stayed 10/13/16 - 10/20/16 , lucky to get our room request which was in building 1 with a pool view, it was amazing!( #1205 ). Very clean, AC worked well, freezing. The pool as mentioned before is fantastic, runs entire length of resort, is only 3 feet deep all over.Grounds are emaculate, food is great. We ate at the Portofina ( Italian ) and the Seaside grill which is a steak spot. The buffet is the best I've seen, been to the DR about 25 times. Another good thing is there are no reservations for the ala cartes, may have to wait a bit but your on vacation!Beach is great as well,the famous punta cana sand goes on forever. service on beach is also an added touch.Ate lunch at the grill by the ocean, great burgers and gourmet hotdogs,or beside that a pizza bar which is also very good.The main building with shops, bars and lobby is breath taking with spral stair case from upper to lower lobby.They also have a 24/7 cafe with every coffee drink you can think of!Lastly, the staff, AMAZING!!!, very happy and accomadating, Ola's all around.I would recommend this resort on everyones list of places to go! Also they have a kids zone, pool, large ship to slide out of and a playground to die for.
We had our wedding at Dreams in April and it was our first time at this resort. We were a group of 25 (age 8months to 65) and stayed for 7 nights. Upon arrival, to my surprise we were taken over to the preferred club desk where we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite. We had requested our groups rooms be in one or 2 of the same blocks which didn't happen but the resort is so well laid out that nothing ever seemed like a far walk. The Wi-Fi was great, never had any issues whatsoever. The buffet food was great, no complaints from anyone. There was always a good selection and plenty of seating. Many of our group used the room service with no issues. The pool is fabulous. Clean, always chairs, and shady areas if needed. The beach was phenomenal. Again always chairs and cabanas. I didn't have time for water activities but a few members tried them out and had a lot of fun with no waits. There's a great pizza place on the beach and a BBQ by the pool which was handy. The entertainment was good, nothing to write home about. Now onto the wedding. Our planner Deyanira was superb. We met with her on our first full day and went over all of the details, prices, and did a nice tour. Our email communication was a little frustrating at times with a language barrier but everything worked out. We had our wedding on the beach and reception on the Portofino terrace. We used the hotel photographer and I have no regrets. He was thorough and took great pictures. He even stayed late so that we could get pictures in the dark with sparklers. Our wait staff/ bartenders were also great. We requested a type of alcohol that they didn't have at our bar, and they tracked it down for us. Deyanira stayed pretty well the entire time, always making sure that we were happy and enjoying ourselves. My only complaint is that the disco opens a little too late and we went there after the reception at 10 and had to sit around with no bartender around for drinks until 1045. We had a good breakfast in bed the next morning. The only other down fall was that the playground is inside of the explorers club and only allowed to be used by children signed up. My son was 2.5 and badly wanted to go on the playground and wasn't allowed because of his age. A little girl in our group who was 4 wanted to play but didn't want to leave her parents and parents weren't allowed in the explorers club, so she couldn't play either. A separate playground would be nice. Overall it was a fabulous trip. We had no real complaints. The resort is top notch and many of our guests have said they'd like to return.
We arrived at the Dreams resort and were well taken care of. There were eight of us and every restaurant made certain to accommodate all of us. The food was delicious, drinks were domestic and international and very good, and the staff were above and beyond attentive and very pleasant. The grounds are gorgeous and spacious and the tennis courts are clay and well groomed. The instructor was not only knowledgeable but a very good player. The beach is gorgeous and there are spots to body surf, swim in waves and just swim. There are lots of beach chairs and little to no rivalry for them. The rooms are nicely appointed but somewhat small though very little time is spent in the room so it did not bother us. The entertainment was fine, and could be improved but was varied and something for everyone. Over all we had a great vacation and would return.
