    Graduation celebration

    We were there with a group of 33 kids and parents of high school graduates celebrating high school. We all arrived and rooms were great snd cold and we had swim up suite with pool sharing with three other rooms. The butler snd concierge Carlos and Luis were great. They made sure reservations were made and even birthday cakes at last minute for me and one of the girls on our last day qnd we requested it on our last day. Carlos made it happen. He paid great attention to us and Luis made sure we had stuff for our room. They were wonderful and need a raise The dos was awesome and I had two massages, facial and exfoliation. It was great and yenesia was wonderful. The food was not very good. But the World grill with the Mexican buffet night was delish and the French restaurant was delicious. The coffe was open 24 hours snd room Delivery burgers and pizza were good. Others were so so. Yes do not let them cart u off to the other resort. Not worth it. No time shares. I didn’t like that at all. They did try to trick u into that Thst is bad business. They try to tell u it’s not done yet but it’s a gimmick to get u over there for time share snd dreams was much nicer than that one next door.

    Dreams Dominicus La Romana May 2024

    The main reason we chose this resort was because the seaweed caribbean site reported La Romana as seawead free are and the information was correct as we had no issue or traces of seawead during our stay. All other aspects of our stay in this resort was satisfactory.

    Awesome, Reasonable, Caribbean Escape!

    My family - 13 brothers and sisters selected this resort based on our initial research. I'd rate the resort a 3 to 4 star, and that isn't saying anything negative. The resort rooms are a bit dated but we figure that overall, people spend 10% of their time in the room. The room was fine for us and we had 2 balconies which we barely used. The resort overall was set up very well. 3 pools, bars everywhere. Asian, Sushi, French, Italian, and general buffet available. One day we asked the head Chef at the buffet to make us a special Dominican lunch and he did it perfectly. All the restaurants have great menu's and the food is very good. The buffet is organized very well and there are a lot of options. The beach was the best I have seen for a long long time. The seating areas were ample. No issues with getting as many towels as we wanted. All the bars were stocked with many brands and types of liquor. Most all of the staff is awesome, friendly, and look to make sure you are happy. The nightly shows are OK. The entertainment staff of young men and women are very creative, energetic and friendly. Special thanks to Jenipher, (yes, this is the spelling of her name) who set up the lunch for us and helped us coordinate the beach barbecue (Asado). This place is great for couples, families, friends, and I would say children-friendly. Also great for a romantic visit. There are some beach shops nearby that have great pricing for souvenirs but you have to be good with negotiating. Also shout out to Ana Iris for setting up our wives and in-laws for a great SPA day. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a reasonably priced vacation that does not disappoint. I am planning to go back with my adult children and their kids within 2 years.

    Fun I’m not so much sun

    After spending several years vacationing in Punta Cana, my wife and I were looking for a change. We booked Dreams Dominicus La Romana since it looked like the most luxurious resort in this area. We had booked the Preferred Master Suite swim out room and had thought the pool was more private than it was, in fact, it is a shared pool with 3 other rooms. Because we had booked this room, we were able to have a vow renewal ceremony included. First Impressions: After a 50 minute ride from the airport, we pulled up to the hotel and the bus directed by the guard to go to the reception across the road. The Preferred check-in. It was small and not terribly fancy considering this was where Preferred Club guests check in (compared to the main lobby). It didn’t give a good first impression. From here we were bundled onto a golf cart with our luggage and another couple to go to our room. The room was nice, definitely large at 1200 square feet, but very sparse with furniture and nowhere to sit and eat room service. We had requested a new room because the shower was broken and lack of privacy (swim out pool was across from the restaurants). Vow Renewal: Kudos to Patricia and Rossy for making the ceremony very memorable. The only hiccup was the rain that happened as we were finishing pictures. There we were in formal wear soaking wet with no umbrella or golf cart to take us back to our room. Second Room: The room we were moved to was smaller, but had its own private pool. Private meaning no one else shared it, but it looked onto a road that was fairly heavily travelled by staff and guests, so it wasn’t really private. We were in building 63 which is right off of the main square, walking distance to everything. The only downfall was that the evening shows were in the square and were quite loud. We just went to them since we’d be hearing it anyway. Food: The World Cafe - the main buffet, was noisy and initially the service was lacking. It was hard to get a drink of water or anything else. The food was ok. Some things were better than others. One big thing was that every hot station had the dish sitting on a hot plate instead of just under heat lights. Preferred Club Beach Restaurant - for breakfast, it was very good, omelettes made to order, usual fair on the buffet. Lunch is a la carte by menu, however the dishes are a bit strange. The seafood paella wasn’t bad but was more like a risotto with Chef Boyardee sauce. The penne with mussels and shrimp had the same tomato sauce with a few pieces of penne some mussels that were overcooked and a lot of octopus which wasn’t listed on the menu. Not our taste. Himitsu- Japanese - good enough show, the food was very good, exactly as you’d expect from a hibachi show. Portofino - Italian - The biggest highlight here was Eddy, our waiter. Exceptional service worthy of a Michelin star restaurant. We had the Fettuccine Carbonara which was quite good. Bordeaux - French - the food was very good, we had the steak (which is hard to get here). Flying Fish - went here for lunch as it is a preferred club guest. Large enough buffet with good choice. Romantic Dinner - part of the vow renewal included a romantic dinner on the pier. The night we had it, it was extremely windy and rained. Flying insects were everywhere and in the wine. The food was fancy but strange. We mentioned this to our butler and wedding planner and they arranged for a re-do. This time it was lobster and a tomahawk steak. WOW, this was the biggest steak I’d ever seen, cooked to perfection. It was more than the both of us could eat. Amazing. Our Butler: Carlos, our butler was one of the highlights of the trip. We’ve been in other resorts with butlers and he was the best of them all. He made sure every detail was perfect. A shout out as well to Edwing his manager for meeting with us and ensuring the week was great. Beach: The beach is much smaller than others in Punta Cana and we found it fairly steep getting in our out of the water. The water was beautifully warm and mostly crystal clear blue. There is a bit to see snorkelling at the buoy line, some coral formations with bright coloured fish. Pros: Carlos our butler. Lots of swim up rooms and several public pools. Golf carts to take you anywhere on the resort. Umbrellas in the room. The private pool was nice despite it not being entirely private. Cons: Drinks from bars are in paper cups that start to get mushy from the humidity. Pool lounges are scarce and have to be reserved by putting your towel down. Only 5 Bali beds on the beach that you have to pay for - other resorts have more and it is first come first serve for free. Overall we had a very good time, despite the oddly rainy weather. Others on the plane said Punta Cana had pretty much no rain. I guess the La Romana area gets a bit more than other areas. Would we go back? While it was nice, I’m not sure it was 100% worth what we paid for the trip compared to other resorts. Likely going to take a break from the DR.

    Anniversary Trip 2024

    Our room was very nice and central to everything. The pools were very nice and clean. The French restaurant was very nice and delicious. Don't forget to pack a pair of slacks for men and closed toe shoes also for men. Jeans and sneakers were fine. The beach was lovely, we rented a beach cabana every day for 50.00 , it was well worth it. We were upfront on the beach and the service was wonderful
