Just returned home from a group family vacation (14 in our group - teens to age 70). The grounds are beautiful and well kept and the beach is lovely with plenty of seating. There are vendors on the beach which was annoying at times. There was seaweed, but they did their best to rake it multiple times a day. The staff are all so friendly and are so happy to assist patrons. They work SO hard. Drinks are slow in the main buffet and sometimes we didn't get them until we were ready to leave. The buffet was also really disappointing for a 5 star resort. Yes you will find something to eat, but it is repetitive, recycled and a very small selection (smallest selection of any all inclusive I have ever been to and not 5 star worthy in my opinion). We went to the a la cartes most nights to avoid eating there. We enjoyed all of them, Oceana was the least favorite e.g. my son's main meal was a piece of salmon on a massive plate with nothing else, would be great to add some veggies or a side. The entertainment team are great, especially Black Coffee, Sexy Boy and JR. We also enjoyed our bartender Jose Manuel. Nightly entertainment was ok, there was a show each night. We had a family room, ours was good, our teens room did not have working air conditioning (it only circulated humid air). Rooms were cleaned daily and our fridges were stocked as well. My biggest issue and warning to parents of teens- there are no wristbands and your underage teens will get served alcohol. This is a worry a parent does not need to have while on vacation and trying to relax. I was pre-warned of this from multiple parents in a travel group I was in. A simple fix would be to wristband teens. Check in and out was a breeze, and the hotel was able to accommodate us after Sunwing (boo to them) delayed our flight for more than 12 hours. And yes the rumors are true if you are travelling from Pearson - the lines are long and we gave ourselves 5 hours prior to departure. Our outgoing flight was delayed almost 2 hours and incoming was more than 12 hours. We were supposed to leave at 1:40 in the afternoon and ended up flying out at 3am the next day. Plus we had to board the plane in 15 minutes or the flight was being cancelled (due to pilots flight log). So would I return here? Only if it was the same promotion/rate we received (which the rates went up drastically after we booked). Read less

We spent our honeymoon at Dreams Royal Beach and couldn't be more satisfied. The service was absolutely incredible, the food was delicious, and the pools were perfect. The room and beaches were always very clean, the staff was so friendly, and the nightly live entertainment was very fun. We really enjoyed going to the sports bar and watching the live shows each night. The drinks were tasty and there was always so much food at the buffet, 24 hr room service, or a selection of restaurants whenever we were hungry. This resort will not disappoint!!!!!! We cannot wait to go back. Read less
