This was a great hotel. Stayed at Dreams La Romana last year. This was on a smaller scale but more cozier not so big. Food was great except for the Seaside grill. Not as good as in La Romana. Room was very clean. Maid had decorated a few times. Excellent service. Staff very friendly. Entertainment was good. Entertainment staff was excellent. Special thanks to Gasolina, Sunshine,Artsy , Sweety who really get you involved and make you feel special. Our tour operator William from WestJet was really helpful. One excursion we did was swimming with the dolphins (2) was a thrill of a lifetime. Beach is great although windy. Would really recommend this hotel and can't wait to go back.
*Special thanks to concierge Jose who arranged to have my friends room decorated for her birthday and arranged for a cake to be brought to the restaurnt as per my request.

Room Number:
7205

Arrival:
We arrived on March l9th with a speedy check-in. Stayed for one week.

Rooms:
Room was cleaned everyday with turn down service. Towel service twice a day.

Restaurants and Bars:
Very clean efficient lots of food. Good service

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
Cleaned daily. Only negative point was getting a beach chair around the pool. One had to be up early to secure a spot. Always chairs availabe on the beach. Food stand set up for burgers, fries. Staff available to take your drink order.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Lots of activities on the resort if you wanted to be involved which we did. Lots of excursions to do if you wanted.

Je suis allée au Dreams Palm Beach de Punta Cana du 15 au 22 décembre 2010. L'hôtel n'est pas sur la belle plage de Bavaro, il est situé entre le Be Live Grand Punta Cana (l'ancien Oasis) et le Blau Natural Park. C'était ma première fois dans ce coin de Punta Cana et j'ai été déçu.

Les vols aller et retour avec West Jet se sont bien passés sans retard et même avec un peu d'avance pour le retour.

Room Number:
8103

Room Block:
8

Arrival:
À l'arrivée à Punta Cana, tout c'est déroulé rapidement. Nous sommes passés très vite aux douanes et nous avons eu nos bagages. À la sortie, je suis allée au kiosque de Sunquest, le représentant nous a trouvé un chauffeur qui nous a conduit à l'hôtel, nous étions les deux seuls à s'y rendre. Le check-in a été rapide et notre chambre était prête même s'il n'était pas encore 15 heures. À cet hôtel, il n'y a pas de bracelet.

Rooms:
Chambre: J'avais écrit à José le concierge de l'hôtel pour demander une chambre au rez-de-chaussée à mi-chemin entre le buffet et la piscine, avec un lit king et une salle de bain complète. Nous avons eu la chambre 8103, près du buffet et de la grande piscine, avec un lit king mais avec douche seulement. Dans la chambre, il y a un minibar regarni à tous les jours, une cafetière, une télé à écran plat Sony, un lecteur DVD, un coffre-fort numérique, une planche et un fer à repasser, 2 robes de chambre et un parapluie.

Restaurants and Bars:
Restaurants: World Café: buffet pour tous les repas, en plus pour des snacks la nuit. Coco Café: ouvert de 6h30 à 22h30 pour des cafés, thés, chocolats, pâtisseries, etc. 4 restaurants à la carte sans réservation: Japonais, Mexicain, Italien et Français. Sur la plage, il y a un petit kiosque pour aller chercher des hamburgers, hot-dogs et frites.

Nous avons pris tous nos repas au buffet, à l'exception d'un souper au restaurant Japonais et d'un autre au restaurant Italien. Il y avait un choix varié au buffet et c'était toujours bon. Au restaurant Japonais, le chef nous a fait un bon 'show-cooking' et c'était délicieux. Quelques après-midis, lorsque j'avais un petit creux, j'allais au kiosque de la plage me chercher quelques frites et chaque soir, nous finissions la soirée avec un café et quelques biscuits du Coco Café.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
Piscines: Nous avons passé presque toute la semaine à la piscine. Les chaises longues étaient très confortables. Je ne me suis pas baignée, l'eau était très froide. Les enfants ont des installations et des jeux pour eux.

Plage: Étrangement les premiers jours, il n'y avait presque personne à la plage. Sur le côté droit après le Be Live, il y a une grosse marina toute clôturée et on ne peut pas passer. Au large c'est le marinarium. Sur le côté gauche, il y a le Blau Natural Park. Ensuite ce n'est pas habité, c'est un parc écologique et je n'ai pas osé marcher plus loin seule.


Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Divertisssement et animation: À tous les jours, nous recevions une feuille le 'Sundial' avec tout le programme de la journée heure par heure, avec le 'drink' du jour, le thème du buffet, le nom du spectacle du soir et aussi toute la programmation pour les enfants. Les animateurs sont très gentils. Il y a beaucoup d'activités pour les enfants et les jeunes. Le soir, il y a aussi des films sur grand écran près de la piscine. Il y a de la musique dans le lobby, sinon dans le gazebo de mariage pas trop loin. Je ne suis jamais allée aux spectacles et je n'ai jamais vu le théâtre, ni la discothèque. Il y a un petit casino avec 25 machines à sous et quelques tables de jeux.

Other Comments:
Boutiques: Dans le lobby, il y a une boutique de souvenirs/dépanneur, une bijouterie Harrison et un bureau de change Global. Entre les restaurants et le buffet, il y a une boutique de vêtements et une boutique de 'gugusses'. On y trouve aussi un local pour l'internet. En parlant d'internet, il y a le wi-fi partout sur le site mais avec un certain coût. 2 fois durant la semaine, des artisans Dominicains sont venus s'installer pour vendre leurs produits.


Serviettes: Il n'y a pas de carte pour avoir des serviettes. Nous avions droit à une serviette par personne, par jour. Les premiers jours, il n'y avait aucun contrôle et à partir de la fin de semaine, il y a eu un manque de serviettes. Alors, à partir de lundi, il fallait donner notre numéro de chambre pour s'en procurer.


Durant notre semaine, je pense qu'il y avait plus d'enfants que d'adultes à l'hôtel. C'est le paradis pour les enfants, l'hôtel est très bien organisé pour eux. Il y a même 2 trampolines pour eux, une sur la plage et une dans la mer.


L'hôtel se définit comme 'Illimited luxury', je trouve que le Majestic Colonial et le Majestic Elegance sont plus luxueux. Mes coups de coeur demeurent le Majestic Colonial et le Bahia Principe.


Il est coté 5*, je lui en donnerais 4 ½*. Il manque un restaurant près de la plage et le buffet n'est pas climatisé. Une chance qu'il ne faisait pas trop chaud.

Super wedding week at the Dreams Palm Beach

My son had a wedding week from 20/8/2010 TO 27/8/2010 at the Dreams Palm Beach. We were there with aboout 60 guests. The hotel staff could not have been better. With so many check-ins quite close together, the hotel did a fantastic job of organizing them. We were directed away from the main lobby and desk to a side area. Here all the rooms, keys etc. were preassigned and we just had to pick them up. Super! They even had hors deourves and a bar set up for us!
I'm sorry that at present I do not remember all the names but the concierge, the wedding planner, Julio and Ms. Frencis as well as Gasolina made our week fantastic.
No one in the group had any complaints about the rooms or the food. They all agreed it was great!
We had one private party on the beach and the wedding reception indoors. Both meals were done buffet style, at our request, and the presentation was quite nice.
The wedding was on the beach and the decorations were beautiful.
All in all it was a great week and we would definately be interested in returning to this resort.
One small thing did distract us during the week. There was no music at the pool with the bar. Everyone missed the music. They should consider adding this.

Arrival:
Check in was a breeze, we had to arrange out own transport since there is no shuttle service from the hotel.

Rooms:
Awesome!! The bed was extra comfy. The room was a little damp and musty smelling but we were given a dehumidifier, and we took air freshener,after reviews. The Jacuzzi tub was addictive!

Restaurants and Bars:
Restaurants awesome and drinks, plentiful!

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
Beach was unreal.. It was stunning.. There are 3 pools and hot tubs.. We stayed in the preferred area, it was well worth it!

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Activities off the resort were so much fun! The bavarro runners tour and the Marinarium Marine Park were a delight!

We were a party of four. Our stay was wonderful. We had a little trouble with the rooms at first, but the hotel staff fixed everything quickly.
The overall status of the hotel was very, very friendly and clean. The staff was the best. The entertainment was excellent, friendly, funny ect...
The food was excellent at all the establishments. Can't really say anthing negative about this resort.

Your Arrival:
Upon arrival we were greeted very well. Our pictures were taken and then we were escorted through everything very quickly. It was so quick that we had to wait for luggage. The trip to the resort was very fast and friendly. There was little mix up with the rooms when we arrived, but taken care of very quickly. Drinks were offered upon arrival too.

Rooms:
The rooms were very clean and the ac and fans were working all great.Towels and supplies were always kept up. The fridge was always restocked and if you needed anything the staff were there very quickly to accomodate you.

Restaurants and Bars:
The restaurants and bars are plentiful. It was great that you didn't have to make a reservation at any of the restaurants. If you had to wait, they gave you a beeper and you could walk around till it was your turn to go in.
We never had to wait too long for any meal. The food was fabulous.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
The beach was great. Sometimes you had to look around for chairs but that didn't take that long. It was kept clean all the time.
Now the pools are very good, but I would watch out for the swim up pools. People tend to forget the sun and how many drinks you cosume at the swim up bars. Wonderful time!!!

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Activities were great. There was always something going on.

We booked an Apple Vacations "6 apple square deal" which meant we did not know until our destination until the morning of our departure. The "Square deal" saved us about $130 each over the sticker price of this place. We are seasoned travelers but this was our first time for an "all-inclusive." What a value and wonderful, relaxing way to vacation.
WEATHER - it rained almost every day of our trip, but in a rain-forest kind of fashion. The rain would come and 15 minutes later the sun would folo. So it was not like a rainy day at the Carolina beaches. One morning it stormed so bad that the rain was coming in the open-air buffet. We noticed one gentleman eating his scrambled eggs under his umbrella. But by the time we finished, the sun was out.

Your Arrival:
Cookies, a fruity cocktail and wet cloths added to the outdoor ambiance of the lobby. The staff was very accommodating in trying to meet our request for a lower-level room.

Rooms:
Clean. Spacious. The AC worked fine. The shower is a little strange. There is no shower curtain -- just a permanent glass front. Only the glass is only half the size of the shower, so it is virtually impossible not to get water on the floor. There is even an umbrella in everyone's closet, which can come in handy.

Restaurants and Bars:
Honestly, how could anyone ever complain? In general, we don't like buffets. We prefer to be served, so we never ate dinner in the buffet. But we usually checked it out to know what we were missing. One night they were cooking filets. They had grilled lobster tails on two occasions. There was always a pasta bar. We did eat breakfast and/or lunch at the buffet. We saw fruit we had never seen in the US. Always fresh squeezed orange juice, and sometimes champagne to go with it . . . They had an omelet bar that also made eggs to order. The salad bar at lunch was good. One day they were cooking T-bones for lunch. It is true that drink service at the buffet can be slow. Getting coffee in the morning was no problem, but asking for a coke at lunch took a couple of requests.
On Saturday, they cooked huge woks of paella at the beach. For dinner, we went to the Hibachi place twice, the seaside grill twice (great-flavored steaks) and the french place twice. Only disappointment was the Italian place because pasta didn't come with the meals. You had to ask for it extra.
True. the pool bar drinks were not strong. But we never went wanting for alcohol. One night they put out a whole table of cordials for help-yourself service. . . another evening they served champagne at the gazebo while a saxophonist entertained . . . the coffee shop coffee was awesome.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
Very clean pools. Guests can get two fresh beach towels each day. The beach does get seaweed, but they are busy cleaning it up every morning. There are fun ocean things -- like an inflatable climbing wall -- for kids.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
We didn't do any excursions this trip. We did hit the local flea market, which is not far from the front gate. These guys are quite aggressive, but there are bargains.

Other Comments:
This place apparently is a big wedding destination. We saw at least 6 weddings. One family told us they had 85 people there, It's also kid friendly. This was SUCH a good vacation.

I have been to the D.R. 4 times and this was the first one i attended and all the others were a let down after staying here. The service was excellent. The resort was great and felt right at home there. We just loved it. Since then I got divorced and went to another resort by myself and won't make that mistake again. I am already planning a trip back to this resort. I recommend this resort to anyone that wants to get there moneys worth. I will be going back there very soon and hope to be greeted as I did last time. Hope to see you all there you won't be disappointed.

Your Arrival:
Was great treated like royalty

Rooms:
The rooms had everything you could possibly need. The AC worked great which is a big plus so you can get a good night sleep.

Restaurants and Bars:
All food was very tasty and the bars were top notch and it seemed there was never a lineup for drinks. They are great people that serve you and have no complaints.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
The pool was awesome and very clean. The beach is something you will just have to see on your own. We just loved it. And at night could not get any better.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Lot's to do. You never run out of things to do. And the prices were not bad even your average Joe can afford them. The resort is hard to explain it is just so beautiful everywhere you go. They treat you like royalty. These people know how to run a resort. Everything is so clean and perfect.

Other Comments:
This is a great place to vacation and you really get your moneys worh and I will be returning soon. Like I said have been to the D.R. 4 times and this was the best place by far.

This is to inform you that we had an unpleasant experience in the dream plam beach resort in punta cana during our vacation from February 5 to february 12, 2010.

I have experienced bad stomac pain and nausea over the week of 02/08/10 and until present. We have found that other people experienced the same problems over the same period . I intend to check with my doctor and then start letting people know what to expedct when vacationing in that specific resort. It is unacceptable to go thru this kind of experience in a resort advertising 6 gold apples.

I am extremely disappointed and intend to share this experience with all the people who think comming to that resort.

I was one of many who were sick while there. You couldn't enagage in conversation without someone discussing them being sick and their travel companions. Everyday we met without exageration 15 people who were sick.
This was our 3rd trip to Punta Cana, our first and last trip to Dreams Palms.

Your Arrival:
The arrival was fine and the room was ready within 15 minutes.

Rooms:
The room was good sized, but the pillow shams were dirty as was the bed spread and the curtains. We asked fro clean shams and 2 days later we got them after several requests. They also continued to put the dirty shams back on the bed even after we told them not to.
I will say the bed matress was comfortable.

Restaurants and Bars:
The food was OK at the buffet assuming the sickness everyone got wasn't food related. The ala carte restaurants were good, but I expected something a bit more from the buffets for a "Six Gold Apple" resort.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
The beach and pools were nice and appeared clean. The crew kept up with the seaweed keeping the beach clean.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
The activities were what you would expect from any all inclusive and the employees were enthusiastic without being over kill.

Other Comments:
I did some checking unfortunatley too late to see that guests getting sick isn't an isolated instance. I noticed several entries going back over the past 6 weeks of peple getting sick.
Also I will ote that the Apple Vacations Representative on premises was of no use what so ever. She even said that she was there to seel excusriosn not help a sick client.

The resort was in a great location and well taken care of except the following. Bathrooms were least desireable. inadequate shower doors means water all over the place. Some people complained about mold in the bathroom. Lack of adequate door also means no privacy when with family.
Sickness was the greatest concern. Over 90 % of the people polled had some form of gastro intestinal sickness which included violent vomiting. Was it the food?, water ? or norwalk hard to tell.
Kids plenty of kids in all pools ecept thier designated one.
food at the buffet was the same each day, restaurants were hit and miss for quality.
Service was great and so were the staff.

Rooms:
Bathrooms poor - shower and door needs desparate improvement
water all over the place

Restaurants and Bars:
buffet same food every day

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
kids in every pool. ? sickness and the young kids in the water.
