I stayed at dreams 25th feb - 11th march 2013. Me and my partner decided to get married there 13 of our family and friends joined us and all were impressed with the hotel and the wedding. Firstly I would like to thank Yanna gunzman for the organisation of our wedding day, which was the 6 th march, the day was perfect and all the staff involved provided a excellent service especially our waiter Zachari Rodrige
The hotel is very clean and the service from all the staff is excellent, the food is very good I had no problems with upset stomach. The ground of the hotel are beautiful, I would return again.

Just returned from Dreams La Romania, had such a fab holiday. From the time we checked at reception they could not do enough for us. Very professional service. The rooms were clean and very spacious good size bathroom with all free toiletries. Breakfast buffet everything you could ask for and the staff were so helpful. The complex is so well maintained and clean, the gardens are immaculate and well designed. All of the animation team were such fun, they went out of there way to make you holiday special, especially Mr Sexy Jacob the aerobics instructor so much fun. Pools clean and beach raked daily, loads of sun beds to choose from so no need to get up at silly o'clock. Afternoon entertainment daily, plenty of bar staff, 3 pools, and 7 restaurants with excellent food that you don't need to book, Italian and French were superb. Lamppost the waiter in the Italian was just the best,so comical could not do enough for us, made our last night so special, felt like royalty. Just give them a small tip and you will be so looked after.

Room Tip: All rooms in a good location , premium rooms had own pool, but I don't feel you need to upgrade...

We stayed @ dreams Hotel and we enjoyed it very much. The room was clean and very spacious and we always received special attentions by the maids. Staff was friendly, food was great. We also enjoyed the fact that it was walking distance from Bayahibe village. gave us a chance to get out of the hotel without any hassle!! Will recommend!!

Just returned from Dreams La Romana. It's a lovely hotel, the rooms are spacious and all have lovely views. Everything was very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the flamingos were amazing. There are plenty of restaurants to chose from and on the whole the food was excellent although the service can be a little slow on times. I think my only criticism is the size of the complex, it was a 10 - 15 minute walk from where we were in block 7 to some of the restaurants - that's fine if you're young and fit but for some of us it was hard going and this wasn't helped by the fact that there are no lifts in the accommodation blocks, so I would suggest if you have any mobility problems or youngsters in buggies you need to ask for ground floor accommodation

Fantastic Trip. We have been to the Caribbean a dozen times at several resorts and this was one of the best places we have visited. The staff was extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome wether it was a Hola or asking us if we needed anything. The grounds were very clean. We ate at several of the different restaurants and the food was very good in each place. The beach and the water were beautiful. My wife enjoyed the daily water aerobics in the ocean. Liked that the restaurants did not require a researvation which added to the relaxation so we could enjoy our vacation and not have to worry about what time it was and we had to be some place at a certain time. We will look at Dreams Resorts for our future trips

We stayed 18th April - 3rd May 2013. This was our 2nd visit over our 1st Anniversary haven got married at the resort in April 2012. We booked as a package through Thomson in the UK and as per our previous trip we had another fantastic Holiday.

Since our last visit a new motorway has opened in between the airport in punta cana and the resort in Bayahibe, where the transfer was 1 hr 50 mins its now down to around 45-50 mins and felt a breeze compared to last time, this is also a massive plus point as it means all the excursions in punta cana are now much more assessable. The only negative to the motorway for some will be that you don’t get to see much of Dominican Life from the motorway where the previous route used to go through towns and cities...personally I was just glad to get to resort quicker.

When we arrived at resort it was like we'd never been away ..greeted with a “welcome home” and a cold glass of champagne...a perfect welcome.

I wrote a pretty extensive review previously and not a great deal has changed so I will try to keep this short and to the point.

The room in block 5 (the best location in our opinion) was excellent as before and cleaned nicely each and everyday by the wonderful maids that work so hard, Mini bar was also keep well stocked.

The restaurants were fantastic as before, so much choice with unlimited visits and no reservations, its going to be hard to accept anything less than this on Holidays from now on. Our favourites were the Seaside Grill,Mexican & Asian. For lunch the Seaside Grill is perfect..I miss the fish fingers and chicken flutes already ! For breakfast it has to be the seaside Grill each and every time...to sit on the deck over breakfast whilst looking out to the Caribbean sea is an image that will never leave me ..stunning ! We do however feel it it such a shame that the seaside Grill for breakfast is now only available to preferred club/Apple Vacation and Unlimited vacation club guests as last year this was available to everyone..lucky for us we were preferred so still got to enjoy this but it just feels a shame for it not to be available to everyone.

The entertainment was excellent with plenty to do each and every day should you choose, we enjoyed the archery ! The shows in the evening were always good and the entertainment team work so hard! Our favourite evenings were the circus show, the magician show and the elements show. On our first Sunday that was a guy performing in the lobby bar doing song covers ranging from Bob Marley to Oasis....he was such a talent and we felt it such a shame that he only performed 1 night out of 15..Most nights there we just a guy on keyboard and saxophone which despite being very talented wasn’t always to our taste. The Lobby bar was lovely for a drink most nights, always with a great atmosphere and fantastic table service ...most nights we didn’t even have to go to the bar.

As mentioned before my previous reviews reflects similar feelings we had about everything again this year so wont repeat myself but just to say Thanks to few people. Louise who is the E-Concierge and runs the Facebook page is extremely helpful prior to arrival, she can be easily contacted via the Facebook page and it was lovely to meet her in resort and see how an English girl is adapting to Dominican Life. Jenny and Yana the wedding co-ordinators are excellent and remembered us from our wedding the year before, we see Jenny 2 days into this holiday and we were welcomed with a massive hug and hello...Jenny is a real assets to Dreams and they should be proud to have her as part of the team...for all you brides reading this you should feel totally relaxed..Jenny and Yana work so hard to make each and every wedding perfect ! The seaside Grill Breakfast team lead be William were brilliant, a few remembered us from last year which made us feel so welcome. William is brilliant in everything he does and works so hard. Fabien and Alberto always friendly and helpful. Karina who seats and Greets was a welcome smile each and every morning. Also thanks to Edith who used to seat and greet at the seaside grill last year but now works at the Italian restaurant, such a welcome smile and friendly nature and greeted us like we were friends and had never been away..another real asset to the Dreams team. Some other names (I wish I could remember them all as the staff/service was generally excellent across the whole resort) Ricardo at the Mexican Restaurant. Alexander at the seaside Grill for lunch, Wainy and picasso on the entertainment team ( also to Andy who effortlesy switches between 5 languages whilst running a lot of activities ). Also to Jordanny who is the the UK Thomson Rep, who is a funny,intelligent helpful man..Thank you ! Also just to say that I doubt the groundsmen/chefs etc who work behind the scenes get hardly any recognition for what they do and this is so unjust...the grounds are immaculate...quite stunning actually and the food for an all inclusive is in our opinion fantastic.

We love Dreams and if possible we would return each and every year, lovely location, lovely people, lovely weather, lovely food...Paradise !! Thanks again...we're really going to miss Dreams.

Room Tip: Block 5 is a great central location .

We truly enjoyed this resort, it was our fourth trip to the D.R. and this was the best experience yet!!! The staff was very attentive and caring more than we had ever hoped for, we love Kenia Ramirez, she went above and beyond and made all our evenings (all 10) very special. Check in and check out was a breeze thanks to the Apple representatives, especially Darling. We truly enjoyed the sunsets over the ocean and the romantic dinner on the pier was an experience we will remember for a very long time, our waiter Winston was very attentive and a great photographer too!!! We are looking forward to our next trip to the D.R.!!!! Thank you for the lasting and loving memories we have of this trip, it was truly amazing!
