Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

The hotel

Aptly named, this Unlimited-Luxury® resort is a dream come true! Almost everything is included, including gourmet meals, top-shelf drinks and sporting amenities galore. Accommodation is also second to none, each room is graciously appointed and luxurious equipped with plenty of space to relax in. Make your holiday extra special and upgrade to a room that includes Preferred Club Privileges, you’ll feel like a true VIP! Water sports are on the agenda all day every day. There are also plenty of dry-land activities but the jewel in the crown has got to be the free-form pool, it’s incredible. One of the largest in the Dominican Republic, it stretches from the lobby all the way down to the pristine beach and is sure to be a hit with just about everyone. A visit (or two) to the world-class spa is a must, indulge in a chocolate body wrap or enjoy a water lily after-sun soothing wrap — sublime! The kids are in for a treat too. At the Explorer’s Club time flies with treasure hunts to keep them busy, sandcastle contests, hiking and arts and crafts. Teens aren’t left out either; they’ve their very own place to hang — the Core Zone — complete with rock climbing wall, basketball, video games and disco nights. The dining at Dreams is unrivalled; there are so many restaurants to choose from. As for the bars, there are ten of them, some cosy and laid-back, others with a more happening vibe. And last but not least, don your glad rags and head to the casino for a night full of sophistication and a sprinkle of good luck.

We ended up changing to this hotel last minute when our original stay at Now Larimar couldn't happen due to construction works. Having looked at the reviews we were a little concerned as this seemed more of a family hotel rather than aimed at couples. However this was not the case. Staff were so friendly and welcoming, also they decorated our room for my husband's Birthday and our Anniversary and provided Champagne and chocolates and fruit platter which was a lovely touch. Food in the A la carte restaurants were really good especially the French and Oceana. Also the pizza at La Trattoria was amazing. The buffet was a bit repetitive but overall ok. No problem getting a seat by the pool as it's not a busy time of year. Pool isn't deep and runs full length from hotel to beach and they provide floats, pool bar good also - very nice cocktails. Shout out to Stephanie the drinks lady she was the best! The grounds were beautiful and clean. The rooms were nice and we were lucky enough to get a pool view. Only real negative was the people trying to sell you stuff very pushy, asked too many times became quite tiresome. Overall we had a lovely time and would recommend this hotel. Read less

Overall the resort is very nice. I dont have any real complaints. Pros: Food-very good. Service in restaurants was excellent. Beach-great sand, no rocks, plenty of sun chairs. Ocean floor was very smooth. Pools- very nice and clean. Grounds-well kept. Very nice. Ocean/pool bars- ok...service was slow and not as friendly as service in restaurants. Interior bars- no complaints. Cons: Vendors permitted on the resort! Pretty disappointed that management doesn't regulate them better. They are far more aggressive than the beach vendors. Rooms- outdated. Needs some work. Fridge, hot water and tv remote broke while there. All were fixed very quickly. The bed was very uncomfortable. If you have many electrical devices, take a power strip. There are not many electric receptacles in the room. We had a swim out room...very convenient! Check in- slow, painful and un organized. Overall the resort was very good. Would be excellent for a family with kids. This was my 30th or so trip out of the country. I would rank this resort just outside of the top ten. With updated rooms, it would easily be top ten. Would I recommend....yes. Would I visit again....probably not. Tip: take a power strip and a bunch of ones and fives for tips. Read less

My husband and I traveled here for our 25th anniversary. We loved every minute of our stay! Lavidinia was our maid and did a fantastic job keeping our room clean and homey. Each night after a delicious dinner, drinks, and relaxation we'd return to our room to find our bed turned down invitingly. All of the workers were so friendly and helpful! From our first moment at the front desk with Yanelys, who greeted us with a huge smile, lots of friendly conversation and helpful directions, to our last day when they arranged for us to have a room to shower in since our plane didn't leave until evening, everyone was accommodating and wonderful. We enjoyed all of the food and the friendly servers made it even better. Suleima made us delicious omelettes each day and made us feel at home. Morayba in the World Cafe couldn't have been sweeter! She welcomed us every day with encouraging words and accommodated all our requests with a big smile. Joanna de Los Santos, at the lobby bar, was so helpful and sweet. Every day was spent at the luxurious pool or at the breathtaking beach. The water was beautiful, warm, and the sand was like white powder! All in all it was amazing 🌴 Read less

I sent to the below email to the resort and received two wonderfully thoughtful and personal emails in return. I had not included my daughter's name yet they replied with her name and with personal details about her. It was such a relief to know that my daughter was in such good hands when I couldn't be there. To whom it may concern, My daughter recently stayed at your resort. Unfortunately, she caught a cold while traveling and ended up blacking out in her hotel room due to dehydration. Thankfully, the staff took great care of her. Jensy stayed with her at the hospital and was extremely kind and helpful. She even surprised my daughter with a birthday cake. When it was time to checkout, the golf cart was sent for her as she was still battling dizziness. Please pass on a big thank you to Jensy. We greatly appreciate the care she gave my daughter.

Cons:It was a nice place but for the price I expected a little newer as it is quite dated. It also has 5 buildings and was a little big for our liking. If u were on the beach and wanted the buffet the lobby is a little too far. Pros:service was fantastic we always had someone offering drinks on the beach or in the lobby. Vianny from the lobby was especially friendly, attentive and just very pleasant. The beach and grounds are very nicely maintained. There r 6 unlimited a la cartes with no reservation necessary and we got in no problem every night. Overall a good experience but with it being a bit dated and a little big 4 stars it is. Read less
