Arrival: December 31, 2008 - January 7, 2009
We arrive at Dreams Palm Beach on December 31, 2008 at 5:30 p.m. for one week.
We were brought to our room upon arrival. No waiting time.

Rooms:
The room was nice and clean. The only downfall was it was right beside the laundry room. It got a little noisy when you kept the door open. The fridge didn't work, but the next day we receive a new one. During our stay, it was only stock once.

Restaurants and Bars:
The buffet was great! There was always a variety to pick from like lobster to spaghetti. The deserts were fabulous. We always received good service from the waiters/waitresses. The coffee at the Cafe was good and again so were the deserts. The only a la carte restaurant we ate at was the Italian restaurant which we found the food very good and so was the service.

At night we would go to the lobby bar where we would be entertained by the bartenders. We had a lot of fun.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
We didn't swim in the pool, only went to the beach. There's was only one day that we couldn't get chairs, so we just sat on our towels on the sand.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
We tried our luck at the Casino on the resort. Very small, needs more machines and tables. But we won, so it wasn't all that bad.

We went on the Saona Island tour. It was great, we had a lot of fun on the speed boats and got to take pictures with the starfish. I found that on this tour you really get to set how people live and the poverty. Very sad.

Other Comments:
This was our first trip to Dominican Republic and we enjoyed it very much. We found that the staff at the Palm Beach resort were very nice, friendly and always service with a smile.

We will definetely go back to this resort.

The only downside is that we decide to go off the resort up the street to do some shopping. The guides pointed out to us that we could buy souvenirs there. Well, not a good ideal. The venders are very, very aggressive to the point were they make you feel uncomfortable. We definetely won't go shopping there again. I picked up a few souvenirs in the gift shop on the resort which the prices weren't too bad.

Arrival: 12/24/08
The resort is not ready to have guests. Most families waited from 3 to 8 hours for a room. We saw and spoke to about 20-30 families over the first two days having the same problems as us. We arrived at 2 and got a room at 7:00pm. Some did not get rooms until 12:00 in the morning. They had no room keys so they told us to get a guard to open the doors. Trying to find a guard when you needed was a chore.

Rooms:
We had three rooms. No A/C in one, the fan in the second room made so much noise that we could not run it while in the room or at night, no control of the A/C in the third (50F or 80). Dozens of rooms had the roof leak over their beds and complained parts of the ceiling were falling on them as they slept. The halls are always flooded during the rain. Two inches in our room by the door. My sons room door would not lock and we had to wait two hours for a repair man to come fix it. Our three rooms had no cable TV however I did figure out how to connect them myself and program the TV channels. There were no towel racks or toilet paper holders in the bathrooms. No handles on the shower or toilet doors. Room service was non existent unless you called several times. Rooms were made each day by 6-7:00pm. We always were out of bath towels. We had suites (Preferred Club) but there were no drawers to put our clothes. My wife kept hers in the night table drawers and I used my suitcase. The floors in the rooms and parts of the lobby are smooth tile that were like sheets of ice when wet. We fell or slipped many times.

Restaurants and Bars:
The food is just average. Getting reservations at the habachi restaurant is a trick. You need to get there by 5:45 and wait until 6:30 when it opens to get in line to make reservations for 1 of the 9 seating available the entire evening.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
They ran out of beach towels several times a day. They ran out of vodka several times and we had to wait til the next day. You need to get up early to get a lounge chair on the beach and even earlier to get one at the pool. We saw many argument about stolen chairs.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
The state of the art Gym is a small room with 1960 bar bells. One of three Hobi sailboats were broken making lines very long making there first come first serve policy anoying. We had to stand there for up to 1-2 hours to get the next available one. The Theater was closed and we saw no shows.

Other Comments:
Well I could go on forever but this should be enough for you to make your decision. There are too many great resorts out there to waste your time on this one.

Do not go on the beach after dark.

Arrival: June 08 - June 13
The arrival at the airport was handled very well. Instructions from the cabin crew on USA 3000 were spot on. A short bus ride and the arrival/checkin was uneventful. That is to say, it was exactly as it should have been. Quick, efficient, polite.

Rooms:
We had asked for a king and were assigned one with two queens. A brief exchange with the bellman and he quickly had us in a King. No problem. The room was small but adequate....afterall, you are not there to spend time in a room. Bathroom is in a word, different. Shower literally opens up into the room....through the wall. Funky but OK. Design of shower guarantees some water challenges on the floor. Nothing that is not manageable. The cleaning crew does a good job and there is no shortage of towels. Temperature controls are great and rooms are comfortable.

Restaurants and Bars:
The buffet is first rate. Breakfast and lunch there every day but one. The food is prepared well and presented in a very appetizing way. Service is as good as I have seen in a resort. The people are genuinely happy and pleasant. They could give lessons to Disney....they are that good.The Japanese/Chinese restaurant has very large portions. Go when you have an appetite. Portions are smaller at all of the others. Service at the Italian was the only issue I saw. On the night we were there , there was only one staff member with a working vocabulary in English. he was working his tail off. Eveyone else was dependent on him for instruction. Not a bad experience...just slow that night. The French resturant service is again best in class. You will enjoy the evening. Mexican is OK..nothing spectacular. Don't miss the Carribbean buffet on Tuesday night. Grilled lobster leads the menu. Some very skilled folks carve spectacular things from melons. Take a camera to dinner. I am not a drinker, although you can ge anything you want...any time you want......quickly. Water, tea, cranberry or any other juice. Any cocktail, Make sure you visit the coffee bar. The coffee is not for sissies. It is bold and robust. I took mine black...

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
The beach is clean and safe. There is visible security approximately every 50 feet. As they are public, everyone has access. Do not go on the beach after dark. Do not. Way too much personal risk. Pools have plenty or room, and plenty of umbrellas etc. Towels are again plentiful and you are never far from either food or beverage. Grounds reflect good maintenance and the assortment of plant life expected in a tropical paradise.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
We only went to the Cigar Factory. in a vehicle driven by a maniac. Holy buckets. I have riden in hundreds of taxis in Chicago. This guy was in a class all by himself.

Other Comments::
The staff works hard. Most make about $100 per week. Trust me it is not a 40 hour week . A few dollars in tips ....go a long way. The staff we met were simply nice people. We enjoyed them very much. And yes, we plan to return.
