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.

A very tired hotel. I visited off peak season and everything looked exhausted. The welcome staff were stressed upon check in. This was not helped by incredibly rude guests shouting in the lobby. If you’re expecting luxury, this place doesn’t exactly draw in that clientele. The entrance lobby is very beautiful. But that’s where it stops. I was staying in a walk out pool room in block 2. The room smelt terrible. Damp and old. Rattling AC units. Tiles coming away. Terrible quality towels. Dusty behind the bed. I didn’t want to sit on the couch because I don’t think it had been cleaned, ever! The food was of a low quality. At breakfast and dinner in the buffet restaurant, a lot of the parts were closed. The staff were incredibly friendly. This was the only redeeming feature. The pool was a great size. However, the tiles around our area were all coming away and were being repaired towards the end of our stay. It seems “wait until the completely broken to fix/repair” rather than general maintenance. The quality of the ingredients is not good. Everything seemed rammed with additives and sugar. Almost impossible to have a raw salad or anything healthy. The drinks are low quality liquor despite calling it too shelf. I wouldn’t not recommend this hotel. Read less

Beautiful resort, but not worth it. Beaches were gross with seaweed. It’s so humid you can barely stand it. We upgraded to Preferred Club, but didn’t receive half the promised benefits such as extra maid service, upgraded toiletries, etc. They hardly ever left us fresh towels and we always had to ask for extra towels and wash rags.

Beautiful resort, but not worth it. Beaches were gross with seaweed. It’s so humid you can barely stand it. We upgraded to Preferred Club, but didn’t receive half the promised benefits such as extra maid service, upgraded toiletries, etc. They hardly ever left us fresh towels and we always had to ask for extra towels and wash rags. Towels never dry with humidity here. Never left extra toiletries, we were always asking for more soap. Water was brown in bathrooms. Service in buffets is very slow and food was just ok. Half the restaurants are closed every night. If you don’t want to wait forever, go at 6. The pool is very cool and winds through entire resort. Beach setup is pretty with lots of shade, chairs, and cabanas, just covered in seaweed. Bar service is excellent. Read less

I went with my loving family of 26 people. It was a lot to take care of such a large group. From planning a day activities to normal things like dinner Reservations. However the resort went above and beyond and I would like to thank all of the staff for being so friendly and helpful. They really make you feel at home! Dip Rosa in particular went above and beyond and made sure our family was take care of. I would recommend this lovely resort to anyone. Also the food was great I’ve stayed at all inclusive resorts before and the food was not too good. Read less

I've traveled to many islands and have stayed at many resorts. We were there to celebrate two birthdays and had 33 people (Adults and Children ranging from Age 7-18). Here are the pros/cons Pros * This resort is huge and the greenery and how it's maintained is absolutely beautiful. Beautiful trees and plants. * People/Staff: Very friendly and accommodating. Special thanks to Franklin and the waitress (I forgot her name) at the Preferred Cabanas. They made the stay so pleasant and took care of our group. * Value: With the price we received it was tremendous value. * Preferred Club: Definitely upgrade to this if you want to get better alcohol and service at the cabanas. Rest of the amenities in preferred is just nice to have but we didn't even use it. * Food: I've also documented below the Cons on food. Overall, the food is average at best. Don't expect it to be like Mexico. There are about 6 restaurants and the buffet. * Oceana (as part of the preferred club for breakfast and lunch) was awesome. The views while eating just puts you in a peace of mind. * Himatsu (Japanese Hibachi) was solid as well where they provide you beef, chicken and fish. Fun chef and overall a great time. * Burger Grill on the beach: Surprisingly very good with hamburgers, chicken burgers and veggie burgers. Also, hot dogs and nachos. * Preferred Club: If you want better alcohol, you need to go to this and get it or get the waitress in the preferred cabanas to get it. While it's watered down alcohol, you do get better brands like Don Julio and Gentleman Jacks. Not the greatest but anything is better than Jose Cuevo/Jimador. In addition, the sandwiches were good especially the ham and cheese. * Pool: Beautiful long winding pool. * Water Sports: A big shout out to Guadalupe who helped us setup a charter and handled some issues from the chartering company. Cons/Minor Headaches/Issues * Check In: They weren't prepared to handle our check in at the Preferred desk. A lot of confusion and took us a long time to get our rooms. * Food: Food was average at best at the Buffet, Portofino (italian restaurant) and Bordeaux (French Restaurant) and Steakhouse were just meeeh. Steaks were overcooked, pasta tasted like rubber. Desserts really were nothing exceptional. * Beach: Sand is soft and warm but the beach had a ton of seaweed. You can't really swin there. * Rooms: It was a bit dated but clean. Will I go back? Absolutely and that is why I gave it 5 stars. The cons were minor when you look at the big picture. Our kids had a blast just hanging out and swimming. They have music at night and shows (some good) and the fact we were all together dancing and enjoying life, it was an amazing trip. I highly recommend this resort. Read less
