Ice safe to drink?


I am staying at Dreams la romana and want to know if the ice is treated and is safe to drink. Also, is ice in town treated? Thank you.

All ice used both on resort and off resort at restaurants, bars etc are made with purified water.So there is no need to worry when ordering drinks with ice.

Anywhere a tourist would venture on or off the resort ALL water, ice, food prep is done with purified water. If eating veggies and fruit from street vendors do wash them or peel them before eating.
