This is a beautiful resort which offers an absolute value for money. The staff is extremely friendly and always greets and offers to help. Particularly thankful to Darlys and Jack (pool concierge) for their kind and friendly attitude.

We’re just back from 10 wonderful days at Dreams Royal Beach. The entrance and lobby are not very impressive but once you pass through the theatre/bar area - it hits you - the lush gardens, palm trees and glistening pools that line the interior of the entire property. It truly has that WOW! factor. The resort is small and easy to navigate - a big plus from the other massive AI places we’ve been. Secrets is on the same property just a short path separates them. They share the gym, spa and Secrets houses a very small ‘kiss-your-cash-goodbye’ casino. ROOMS - We had to move rooms after the first night due to a problem they said could not be fixed. This is where ‘Billy’ (Preferred Level) stepped in assisting us with the smooth transition. After checking into room 5255, we moved to 5279 a very clean and quite large king, pool view on the 2nd floor, close to restaurants, the main pool and the beach. They have not been refurbished as some mention but it looks like the furniture has been painted - it was very clean. A couple of the downsides - the slider to the balcony takes a Herculean effort to open and close and the bathroom shower is in desperate need up updating. There are also no fitted sheets so it’s a sloppy sleep. It’s times like this you’re grateful for that nightly cocktail that aids you into blissful unawareness. DINING - The food was good - even the buffet. A standout for us was the build-your-own-pasta area with meats and vegetables tossed in your choice of sauces. Choose everything including mixing a bit of each sauce. Delicious! The steaks are hit and miss but we tried and enjoyed every restaurant. They never open the dinner dining places on time. They’re just never ready. If it opens at 6:00 - they’re having their team meeting at 6. Just plan on a 10+ minute wait any evening or go a bit later - you’re on vacation - it’s Caribbean time. Reservations are only needed for Fusions/Teppanyaki and long pants for men are necessary at Oceana. Sleeved shirts are also enforced at dinner - no tank tops for the guys. GYM/SPA - Both the gym and spa are on a small path that connects Dreams to Secrets. The gym is in 2 places and while both are small, we never had an issue getting equipment we wanted to use. I had two 80 minute massages. We booked with Delta Vacations - it included a coupon book with the package. I used $40 coupons against the $199 cost both times. STAFF. The staff is outstanding. They’re upbeat, friendly, welcoming - can’t do enough for you including anticipating your needs from check in/out with bellman Grabiel, those drinks with Jefrey and Billy who checked in with us daily and smoothed out the wrinkles from the room change, dinner reservations and getting the Covid results on time. How they all remember who you are, where you are and what you drink is beyond me. Quite often we were ‘mamma and poppa’ - which was sweet. MASKS - A must in the buffet but that was it. All staff were masked all the time, the guests - not so much. With over 75 cruises under our belts and no ships sailing, this was an excellent choice for a beautiful, memorable vacation. Read less

Our first (but not last) time in D.R. Excellent experience at Dreams Royal Beach. It is very well maintained and extremely clean. We chose a preferred club level pool-view room for our one week stay. We had maid service 3 times daily with constant restocking of snacks and beverages. Perfect for returning from the beach/pool for a shower and siesta before dressing for dinner, followed by drinks and entertainment at the plaza. Returning to the room, we found the room refreshed and the bed turned down. The attention we received from the staff is what made our week here very special. Billy, our butler, was always at the ready to handle our requests. He surprised us by providing a special anniversary evening complete with chocolate covered strawberries, champagne and jacuzzi bubble bath! He also created a romantic atmosphere in our selected restaurant on another evening. Tip of the hat to Billy for taking such great care of us. Housekeeping was excellent. Milady Ochoa appreciated my laughable attempt at Spanish and she surprised us with an extremely creative gift of a English/Spanish translation book - for our next visit! Restaurant staff were very friendly and attentive. Especially memorable were Cesar, Rudy and Ernesto. The servers at the beach, pool and plaza were great also, namely De Jesu and Jhon. The value received for the price paid is what makes this the best hotel on Bavaro Beach. Read less
