Grounds were immaculate, rooms need freshening but were clean. Staff was wonderful. Restaurants were good and easily accessible, ie no long lines. A bit of a drive to reach most excursions but none of the hustle and bustle of the resorts closer to Punta Cana. We had a great time at the Hilton!

The service staff (waiters, bar staff, etc) was great....but the management and check-in staff was terrible. If you are thinking to upgrade to preferred status, don't do it!! Not worth the money. It took us well over an hour to check-in and there was no line!! They say you get a private pool area and beach area but these are NOT monitored at all. We could have had access without paying the extra cost. And the upgraded mini bar is simply a joke!! When we complained after the first day, we were told there was no manager on duty. We said we'd be happy to be moved, they said it wouldn't be a problem and didn't move us. And when we were FINALLY able to speak to a manger upon check-out....we were told you stayed in the room so you will not be refunded. I will never stay at a Dreams resort again!! Terrible customer service!!!

Great resort, location and staff

The Dreams resort is an excellent vacation destination. There are many food choices and the drinks are good. This all inclusive resort has a great staff who is both friendly and attentive. There are a great deal of activity choices or you can just lay on the beach or by the pool. I had a great time and will return in the future.

Inconsistent, with mixed emotions

Overall vacation was inconsistent. Some staff were over the top in making our stay memorable. Other staff members treated us like an inconvenience and blamed us for their mistakes. Stating it was a language barrier when we knew what they were saying. Drinks where heavy on the liquor and food was abundant and tasted moderate. Music played into all hours of the night. We slept great after laying on the sandy crowded beach all day.

Dreams La Romana is a wonderful place.

Pros: The service, the selections of food and beverages. The size and space.
Cons: Some of the towels were rough and thin.
Location: La Romana has excursions as well as Alto De Chavon. Saona and Catalina islands are a must.
My new wife and I spent our Honeymoon at the Dreams La Romana. We spent 8 full days and 8 nights. We booked through Travelocity. We arrived 3:30 PM Sunday and was greeted by wonderful staff. It was a bit overwhelming at first but they really do mean to take care of you and make you feel welcome. Aside from our room not being ready when it was supposed to everything else was excellent. The restaurants are great. Some simple with true Dominican food and other more elegant with a specific cuisine attached to it. They have a preferred section and a regular section. For the extra money I recommend the preferred section as the regular pools can become very crowded at times but bearable. The entertainment was amazing and always something to do from yoga, to water aerobics, volleyball, lounging on the beach, snorkeling, etc.The staff is the best part. Do yourself a favor and learn a bit of Spanish as they will appreciate it and it goes a long ways. And if not, still try to communicate with them. Do so with a smile on your face. They have huge hearts and are very welcoming so don't be rude and "expect" to be treated like kings just because you paid for it. And even small tips go a long ways. This place can be what you make it; quiet and quaint, or loud and energetic.Visit the Altos de Chavon when you go. You wont regret it! All this is coming from a couple that travels the Caribbean often and we must say this place rocks. The overall country is beautiful but rough but the people rock!

Family time

Pros: See above
Cons: Get rid of the sales both at the entrance/ exit of the main dining hall, better liquor and fix the roads leading up to the resort.
Location: Punta is close by with great shops.
Went there with wife and daughter for a short weekend, the overall staff was good. Check-in was quick and easy, they gave you all the information in the packet so that you can choose what you wanted to do. Fix the road leading up to the resort. If you are from there you are treated differently which is typical almost as if the natives are not welcome. Don't like the idea that you had to pay for WiFi even though it was only $5 a day for each device then we couldn't get it to work but they refunded the cost. The top of the shower wall was not clean, I only noticed this because I'm tall. Don't like the idea of the pushy sales guy Wilfred at the sales desk trying to get you to listen to their speeches about product(time share ?) as you leave the main dining hall; just accept the word No and let the people enjoy their vacation. The liquor is cheap liquor. The food was good, beaches great, plenty of beach chairs and shade, my daughter love the pools, plenty of pools to choose from. I like the idea that the had the basketball game on the big screen. The food and hostess at the main dining hall was great. The ladies in the desert cafe were great along with ladies in the gift shop; there was a problem with price on a shots but they took care of it. Overall a very nice family resort and I we would stay there again; the positives outweigh the negatives.

great amenities and entertainment!!!

My husband and I  were looking for an all inclusive Caribbean vacation and Dreams La Romana came highly advertised by one of my co-workers who visited it several times (she visited a lot of other all inclusive resorts in Mexico and Dominican Republic). Our experience was great! The rooms were spacious and very clean. The food was good. Drinks were delicious. The entertainment team was working seemed like 24/7. We took 2 excursions from the hotel that were amazing: Saona Island and Buggies. Useful tip: you have to negotiate the price as much as you can. Overall hotel amenities were beautiful. We got the preferred club but didn't use it's benefits too much, only free internet and little buffet at the lounge. The pool at the preferred club is beautiful and quiet but we prefer the beach so we made no use of the pool.
