“nice place to stay”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I had an nice room 2320. The tranfer from the airport was easy only 45 minutes, but the should take smaller cars if there are only one or two people to get picked up. The check in was not very friendly for me. I arrived a 10p.m, I was tired an felt ill. No drink nothing friendly and I had to wait for my luggage for more the 40 minutes. Not a good start for a vacation. After two days ot gots better. THis place ist no not really for single person.
Some days the food was very good some days not same to the service. One of the most friendly persons was Mrs. Fruit in the moring andalong the day at the beach and the guys of the entertainment team. They were allthough always very nice. Especcaly cocoloco, Eddy Murphy, Cocacola, Chocolate, Big Pappy an Picasse.
So shows are nice to see at the pool area. I missed more entertainment for people over 50. like dancing bachata, salsa an merengue.
In enjoyed my stay and may be I come back sometime again.

First of all, I have just signed up to tripadvisor to give this hotel the credit it deserves. We have just returned from a two week holiday at dreams la romana and this place can only be described as paradise.

Having stayed at previous all inclusive resorts before, at places such as cancun, Dom rep (puerto plata) and egypt , this one is by far the best. The ingredients for a perfect holiday for me is:
- weather
- cleanliness of hotel
- food
- entertainmnent
- good staff

This hotel as the above in abundance.

This hotel as a variety of restaurants, a buffet which offers a variety of food, himitsu (Chinese/japanese), Mexican, oceana (seafood), Dominican , seaside grill ( steaks etc), portofino (Italian), bordeux (French). We never had a bad meal in two week but my favourite restaurant was the Italian , we went three times on the bounce because the steak was that good, it was quality meat which in England you would pay around 25quid for. Benjamin who worked at the portofino restaurant was very welcoming every time we visited.

In the day we would eat at the pizza place round the main pool which served tasty fresh pizzas all day (better than any of the pizzas at the restaurants) or the seaside grill which also did great food with a great view of the crystal clear ocean.

The entertainment staff worked tirelessly all day everyday. Picasso and Eddie murphy were the two that particular stood out for me. On our last night we attended a magic show which was very good.

We often spent our time around the infinity pool which had the swim up bar and great views of the beach and the sea. Indiana the waitress around the pool worked very hard in providing the guests with drinks in blistering heat.

One last thing, the cleanliness of the hotel was unreal. They had cleaners stationed at the lobby toilets 24 hours a day everyday, you really could have eat your dinner there....spotless!

I would recommend this hotel to anybody......and certainly lives up to its name "dreams" la romona

We have just returned from dreams and had a wonderful time, we went for our belated honeymoon.

We asked for a quiet room but got allocated a room on the ground floor of block 4 directly behind the stage. Quite noisy but it all calmed down by 11.

We met some lovely people and had a brilliant time, the staff were lovely and friendly and the food was gorgeous.

There were a few annoying things like when we went for an afternoon nap and put up the "do not disturb" sign for the chamber maids the front desk would phone asking random questions! Once I told them to please not phone again they let us be.

All in all we had a brilliant time excellent value for money and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Stayed at this hotel twice now (which is always a good sign!).

First time in June 2010 in block C (non refurbished room, 2nd floor).
Room was ok, small balcony and décor looking a little tired. But the resort is lovely, with plenty of loungers on the delightful beach (my preference for sun bathing) and of course the calm, tranquil, turquoise Caribbean Sea when the need to cool down arises!

The beach bar is great, with good service and a good range of drinks and cocktails, and the bar in the infinity pool is great for cooling and drinking at the same time, though does get a little raucous late afternoon!

Food choice and quality were (in my opinion) a cut above the usual 4 star AI hotels I’ve stayed at, with plenty of choice and being self serve, you can have as much or as little as you want. Only tried one of the other restaurants and it was ok, but if didn’t use them again, I wouldn’t feel I’ve missed out. Others may disagree.

The entertainment was generally good, which is quite important as there isn’t too much else to do, with Bayhibe being a small and quiet resort. My guess is if you’re after a lively holiday with lots to do and see, you will have by-passed this hotel in the brochure already.

Other than that, the staff were great, the place was clean and tidy (beach included) and it certainly deserves its popularity.

The second time we stayed there was November 2011, which is a better time of the year to visit as the weather was excellent!

This time we upgraded to a Preferred Club room and although the upgrade isn’t cheap, I reckon it's worth it. The rooms were a lot nicer, the range of drinks by the pool and in the PC bar were more extensive and the PC pool was nice and quiet. This meant that I could do some work whilst having a beer and sunbathing! The wi-fi (included with the room upgrade) handily works by the pool so I could even have a Skype conversation with colleagues in the UK from my lounger!

Apart from that, everything else was the same or better than on the previous visit and I’d happily go back there again.

This place was featured in a Sunday Times travel supplement in 2011 as a good value Caribbean beach resort and I’d definitely agree.

Room Tip: Aim for a refurbished room if you're not upgrading to Preferred Club. Email reception and ask fo...

A little late with review after visiting in April 2012, this was our 3rd visit and this hotel always exceeds our expectations, we upgrade to the Preffered club which we think is worth the extra money we pay, our room 7333 overlooks the PC pool, the room was cleaned daily and the mini bar replenshed daily, the nightly turn down service is good a tidy room/bathroom when you return to go to bed with chocolates on your pillow. We like the PC pool and beach area as they are a lot quiter than the other pools and you can get a sun lounger in the shade, Fecundo (security) and Stephanie(waitress) ensure you are looked after during the day and Hector adds his proffesionalism to the bar in the evening.

Glennis the manager of the PC was on maternity leave while we visited but Romy, Pircosa, Blanca and all the girls looked after us in her absence and ensured we could eat at the restaurant of our choice at a time suitable to us.

We ate in all the restaurants except the Jungle and the food and service was good in them all, our favourite is the seaside grill especially for breakfast.

The only negative is that they was not serving cereals in PC lounge at breakfast and the choice was a little limited and repetitive after 17 days.

Looking forward to our next visit

Room Tip: Block 7 is quiet and top floor rooms have a vaulted ceiling

Me and my boyfriend have just got back from a 2 week holiday from the beautiful dreams la romana.Unfortunately the first couple of days were rainy due to the hurricane sandy passing through, but they put plenty of entertainment on including singers,movies etc. However after the first couple of days the sun came out and you got to see the full beauty of the hotel. The sand was beautiful and white, and once the hurricane had passed the sea became crystal clear. The hygiene in this hotel is extremely high, there are constantly cleaners in the toilets and around the hotel ensuring the high standards are maintained. The food in this hotel is by far the best in any all inclusive we have previously been too. The italian was our favourite doing amazing soups and eggpland parmesean for starters to delicious chicken and mouth watering steak for mains, not fogetting the yummy pofiteroles for dessert, we were such regulars the manager benjamin became to recognse us and allways greeted us with a smile.But other restaurants include mexican, french,seafood,japanese etc and all we really enjoyed. Not fogetting the pizzeria and seaside grill that provided lovely lunches, be prepared to over indulge. The drinks were top brands and ofter had bottled of budweiser on offer, how ever the local beer was also nice. The cocktails were deicious and far too many to choose from. Most evenings we would go to see a show, which were often quite good, i dont know how the entertainment team work the hours they do. characters such as eddie murphy and picasso were so entertaining and spent time to talk to you. we made use of the casino too,which is small but does the job, and the night club always provided a place to go if you wanted a late one. In the days we chose to spend most of our time around the infinity pool, the other pool was more for kids and we're not really beach people (even though it ws amazing) the bar lady indiana provided us with drinks and as soon as your glass was empty she was there with a fresh one for you. if your into getting involved in activities they did allsorts,from yoga, to aerobics, to darts and volley ball, although we prefer just to soak up the sun there was lots going off all the time. there was a games room for the kids wth pool tables, table tennis and playstations, aswell as tennis courts and football pitches. I treat my self to a massage while i was there, and being a beautcian have high expectations, however it was absolutely wonderful, and as an added bonus i got an offer with 30per cent discount and a free hour in the spa. If you want a treatment while your there keep your eye out for the spa staff around the hotel offering discount. Another added bonus was the water activities on offer around the hotel,including kayaks and pedalos which we used and were great fun. The little coffee shop was a lovely touch and offered everything from hot chocolte,to latte and pastries and cakes. We were at dreams for haloween and they made a great effort dressing up and decorating the hotel. We would definately return to this hotel and reccomend it to anybody. if i was to grumble at anything about this hotel it would be to relax the dress code a little at night,i can understand wanting a dress code for the smarter
restaurants, but i dont see why men cant wear sleeveless tops in the world cafe but women can walk about in next to nothing. however this is a small grumble for a nearly perfect holiday.

I travelled to Dreams with my husband and 2 friends in October. I e-mailed the hotel prior to travelling to say that I had stayed when the hotel was Sunscape and asked if we could have adjoining rooms - we were given just what we asked for in Block 3 with a beautiful seaview from the balcony. The hotel was as beautiful as I remembered and couldn't fault anything about it - maybe the food wasnt quite as good as when it was Sunscape but there was always something you could find to eat - the Seaside Grill was brilliant other than that we ate at the World Cafe. The staff were all so helpful and Alexis at the swim-up bar was crazy. All in all we had a brilliant time and will definately be returning.
