NOT-Dreams La Romana Bad Reviews

I am planning to visit Dreams La Romana in July –not my first time in Dominican Republic and I’m a bit tired of having to go to the same threat to read about what is going on with this resort and the area. There have been more positive replies on that threat than negative. But the subject with over 90 replies implies that Dreams La Romana is the pits.

It is probably me, but I would like to read more about Dreams Resort without having to go Dreams La Romana Bad Reviews-this is definitely a very negative title MHO

PS: I’m not affiliated with DR ;-)))))

We loved our trip to DLR! Our mistake was only going for 7 days. Next time will be 12.

I miss the juices in the breakfast buffet,

I miss the chinese restaurant, french restaurant,

oceana. The buffet gala night.The fruit lady on the

beach. Floating on my raft with a drink in my hand,

Lounging in my beautiful suite in building 8.

Playing the slot machines in the casino.

Happy enough for you? LOL

THE BUFFET GALA NIGHT??? Dotneko, please do tell, I was not aware. Can you elaborate?

Mossy1, I do think it was a great idea to ask why there was a problem…we need to know the good & the bad. Great thread,

I believe most of the negatives were related to illness.

Most of the time there is sickness, it's brought by tourists.

The other complaint I remember was a group of 10 or so complaining they weren't getting the service they expected.

If 10 people show up at a restaurant and want to sit together, they better expect to have to wait.

An example of the service of our stay.

We went to have lunch. It started to rain. My wife ran to our beach chairs to get our belongings that she wanted to keep dry. The manager ran after her with an umbrella and escorted her back. With over 50 visits to the Caribbean over the years, it's the first time it has happened.

PS we are in our early 50's so it wasn't like she was someone who needed help.

As far as being a pit.

They were better than average for there rateing. Every day there were several landscape workers raking the beach and grooming the property. After a down pour one night, there were several workers shoveling sand and raking the beach first thing in the morning to restore it.

Very rarely saw empty glasses left laying around by tourists.

Public bathroom was always clean and odor free.

If anything they may have had an excess of staff maintaining the property.

We had a tree rubbing the roof over our room that was very annoying. We contacted management one morning and the landscapers had the problem remedied before we returned from dinner.

Nick D,

The umbrella story is more than anyone can expect from a resort…thanks for sharing

I’m truly excited about the trip and I’m looking forward to the great service many of you have described.

There was one evening, I think it was Saturday, but I cannot remember now, where the buffet had and extraordinary dessert selection - quite fancy and extending the whole center section. The hostess called it the 'gala' night.

There was lobster and sushi in the buffet that evening also.

We had already eaten at one of the ala cartes, but still managed to try some things. It was unfortunate we did not know about it until after eating dinner.

We made sure to check out the buffet every evening after that in spite of going to another restaurant LOL

Be sure to check the buffet!
