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.

Service was terrible

Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet
I visited in October 2012. The place is beautiful but the services is terrible. Also I left my new iphone recharging while I grabbed breakfast and when I returned it was gone. I called the hotel security which were not helpful at all! They said they would investigate but never heard back from anyone even when I tried to track someone down, I didn't get anywhere. The food is not great either. I was very disappointed. Internet not free and the local town was really far.

Really lovely

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet
Dreams is a phenomenal resort. The people are beyond friendly and helpful. The grounds are stunning and very clean. The food was quite good, very timely and no complaints ( just not out of this world). The hotel gives you enough options to participate in activities or decline. The restaurants were stunning inside, all of the different cuisines authentic and great. Overall... muy exelente.

Preferred Club level for our 10 year anniversary

Pros: Free Internet
When we booked this, we read all the reviews, and decided to spring for the club level, and I am pleased as punch we did. Room: All the aesthetics of the rooms were great. Bed was comfy enough, and the second floor view of the pool was nice. Complimentary wifi for Preferred Club in our room, we brought our lap top to stay in touch with our kids back home. Fridge was stocked with beer, water, soda, and juice boxes. Coffee maker was nice to have, though we didn't use it since there is a coffee bar. There was a DVD player, and most channels are spanish, though HBO and a NY ABC channel as well as TLC were broadcast in English. I watched the tube before bed. Bathroom stocked with towels, and a nice assortment of toiletries. There was even a bottle of sunscreen! Pools: We are not party'rs , we are reaching for 40 here soon. So we opted for the relaxed atmosphere of the Club pool when possible. We did venture briefly into both of the other pools, and were first met by the locals selling the stuff at various table. Yes, we spent money on stuff we really didn't need. I figure we asked for it. Plus, the country is very poor, we are helping their local economy. They are only at the main pool a few hours a day on certain days. Just an FYI. The other pool with the swim up bar was GROSS. Water was murky, and when I got to the bar, it smelled like rotten garbage. We then turned, left, and went to the preferred pool. The preferred pool was always calm with the people, and always had a chair available to lounge on. The pool bar was ALWAYS clean, always made top shelf drinks, and NEVER smelled, unlike a few of the others. Again, this is why we paid a little more for the upgrade. Bars: The best bars were the Lobby bar, and the bar next to the Seaside Grill. Also the preferred Bar at the pool. The other bars smelled, looked dirty, and were under staffed. Dining: BRING SLACKS! The two better restaurants will not seat you if you do not wear pants. Hubby left his home, so we did not get to try them. We did try The Seaside for dinner and lunch. Both meals were good. Seaside is right on the water front, so it is a very pretty place to dine. The World Buffet is the only place for breakfast, unless you order room service, which is also included in the All Inclusive Resort. We dined at the Asian restaurant one evening, and really enjoyed all of the food there. We usually ate lunch at the World Buffet, just for ease. Quick and easy to get in and out of so we can spend more time on the beach. Beach: Preferred Club offers a private beach lounging area with little cabana like tikis. PERFECT!!! our last day had rain, so we were very content to be held up underneath reading and napping till the shower passed. The main beach does not have any shaded or covered areas unless you drag a chair into the shade. The sand is soft, and won't cut up your feet. Bring your snorkel and mask, and swim right off the beach. Hubby and I took a little Snorkel tour for $25 each, and it went a bit from the beach, but still stayed in the cove. Glad we did it, but much of the coral is dead, and inundated with sea urchins. Maybe a SCUBA tour would be better, but we passed on that this trip. Transportation: We flew into Santo Domingo which is a 1 1/2 hour ride from the resort. If possible, fly into La Romana. It is only 20 minutes away. Otherwise, expect to see the cultural parts of the Dominican as you drive through a number of small towns on the way to the resort. Activities: Every night you get a schedule for the next day and it has the restaurants that will be open, the activities, and times everything gets started. The evening entertainment was okay. Not Broadway or anything to write home about. Tips: Tips are included in the ALL INCLUSIVE package, but if you want service, you should tip. Otherwise, expect a nod, but no smile. Language: SPANISH, and I am not a Spanish speaker. The only thing you need to know how to say is your drink order ; ) OVERALL, I say spring for the Preferred unless you want to be part of the party scene, and rather loud music at the pools. We went for our anniversary, and we both wanted to have just time together, so we choose the route we took. I LOVE the all inclusive resorts, it is the way to go if you are looking for a care free vacation.

Great Wedding At Dreams!!!

I brought 43 people with me for a wedding and have been to several all inclusive hotels before. Pros: Jenny G., the wedding planner, is an amazing person to work with. She was organized, calm, pleasant, and had great suggestions for me. The day of the wedding, she was running the show, and I felt completely comfortable with putting everything into her hands! The ceremony was beautiful performed by Elke, the Spa manager. Reception was at Bordeaux and the place was very cozy and well decorated. Every detail I asked for, cigar roller, fireworks, vodka bar, LCD projector, was set up and execited perfectly! If you are looking for a hotel to have a wedding this is it!!! Pros for Hotel stay: beach is clean, beautiful, pool is great, nice spa, clean modern rooms. We stayed in building 5 and our room was clean by the time we got back from the beach. Plenty of food to choose from, about 40% of it is just ok though. Burgers and pizza by the pool were awesome. The fresh fruit served on the beach is superb!!! The little coffe shop by lobby served the best coffee I have ever had! Drinks are decent if you ask for the right booze. Staff is incredibly friendly and they will try to please you especially if you tip a little. ( Alexis at beach bar made our stay fun!) Kenya served 9 of us a gorgeous lobster dinner on the deck!!! We felt like VIP!!! Portofino, Sea Side Grill, Himitsu were pretty good. Cons: Service at the restaurants is very slow even for "vacation time". Althogh you do not have to make reservations, if you are with a group of people, prepare to wait up to an hour to get seated. Many mixed drinks were very sweet. (ask for more ice, be specific with your drink order). We went in July and the bees were relentless. More must be done to get them under control. I got stung twice and so did some of my guests. World Cafe needs more lighting, fans, improve food quality. (Steak was rubbery, no bacon or fresh orange juice at breakfast) Overall: We went there for a wedding and they exceeded my expectations for a pretty great price compared to anything in US. We also went there for the beautiful scenery and they certainly have that. I would go back again and recommend this hotel. Just hope they improve the food a little.
