“I had a great trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I went to a wedding at Dreams La Romana and had a great time. I had read reviews previous, so upgraded to fancier part of resort, which I thought was worth it. The resort is very pretty, I heard the snorkeling was good, but couldn't pry myself away from the pool to go. The drinks are maybe not the best you've ever had, but they are plentiful and price included so in my book- awesome! The wedding was super cute and the wedding cake was the best wedding cake I have ever had ever.
One thing to make extra sure is that your airport transfer is all arranged before you go- some in our party had a problem with their airport transfer not being finalized or something so they had to pay extra $100 to get from the airport to the resort.
If you are ready to relax by the pool or beach and have a good time this is a great spot.

Room Tip: Block 7 was great- nice and quiet. I hear the top floor rooms have cathedral ceilings so a bit nice...

We stayed here for 2 weeks. It was the most beautiful relaxing place I have ever been to. The staff all seemed genuinely friendly, that it wasn't put on, always smiling which made me even more relaxed.
The restaurants were all lovely and were made to feel special, I would recommend the Mexican. However the main buffet was just as good and went there most evenings as well.
As expected the weather was fantastic with a few thunderstorms which just added to it, was very hot and sticky so keep cool with lots of water!
Only went to the pool a few times, as the beach was beautiful, sand as soft as flour. The entertainment was to be honest not always our cup of tea, but this didn't matter as we were happy just relaxing around the complex, we had taken a pack of cards with us to play which came in useful.
One thing I wasn't happy with was the fact that the spa was separate so, you had to pay even if you only wanted to go in the jacuzzi, I understand treatment ps have to be paid for but I saw nobody in there as you had to pay to use anything, I think if they made some free that guests would be happy to pay for the other treatments.
All in all we had a fabulous two weeks in paradise.

We've had "All inclusive" holidays in Mexico, Cuba and many other Caribbean islands. Most of them were more expensive the one one we've just enjoyed at Dreams. I simply cannot understand those reviewers who complained about the rooms or the food at this resort. Last year we were at Sandals, Negril Beach in Jamaica, which was more expensive than Dreams, even though we paid extra to be in their "Preferred" section of the resort for this holiday.
The reception was better, as was our room and there were more restaurants to choose from. We liked some more than others of course, but the general standard of food was definitely better as well. The gardens were the best tended and attractive we can remember and there were enough pools to suit any body. The only thing we did not like was the resort's unwllingness to enforce the rule of not reserving sun loungers around the pool or on the "Preferred' beach. There was a good standard of security around the preferred areas, and it would not be difficult to get one of the attendants simply to remove towels etc from unoccupied beds at 10 am. With that one fault we thought the resort was great and very good value. We'll be back

Room Tip: Do pay for the "Preferred area. The hotel was only about 60% full but the main beach was heavin...

Just returned back from a wonderful holiday in the Dominican Republic.It was our first time there and our first time using the all-inclusive style of holiday.We could not fault the food,choice of restaraunt,or the service we received.Our favourite was the French,however the meals from breakfast,lunch and evening were all good.The staff were very friendly,the room was lovely and spacious,and the hotel complex was spotlessly clean.We generally had a magnificent time,met some lovely people and definately would return in the future!!!!!!

I am three days into my stay at Dreams La Romana and will be here until the 13th. I just couldn't wait to share my experience with the world about this place. My hubby, son and I are staying in the Preferred Club 5100's part and we love it. If you book thru BOOKIT.COM add the transportation service round trip to your package we were greeted by a chauffeur and was taken to the resort where we were given champagne, warm greetings and the concierge took our luggage. Next we were escorted pass the busy lines in the lobby to the preferred club lounge area to check in. Checking in literally took 5 min. After check-in we were escorted to our room where we were in total awe. The bed was topped with a beautiful towel swan sculpture and the room was immaculate. Not only did we have the King sized bed but they even prepared a twin size bed for my son. Totally exceeding my expectations! We had a sliding glass door that led out to our private balcony and led to the preferred club ONLY pool. The service is reputable, the food is delicious especially Jungle Restaurant. The World Cafe food was good as well the waiters were TOP NOTCH!! I was shocked to find out that they had a program for children called the Explorer's Club. They take your child (with consent) every day if you want from 9:30 am to 9:30pm on all sorts of adventures while the adults have alone time and my son LOVED IT!!! The bars, ahhhh the bars served the best drinks if you didn't know what you wanted for the day no worries every day they had a special recommendation in the daily pamphlet they delivered to the room. Running low on your drink, no problem a waiter or waitress was always there to refill or bring you a different drink of choice. I would definitely come back to this resort. I absolutely loved. I have no complaints. I can go on and on about the great experience I had on this resort but until you actually go you will know exactly what I'm talking about. :)
