TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

It had been a couple of years since our last visit and the resort was better than it ever has. The grounds are gorgeous and the food was better than we remembered. We have been to this resort 5 times now and It is worth every penny. We chose the new preferred club, adult only, swim up, garden view room in building 1. It was amazing. Our visit was great right from the start. Emmanuel Francisco greeted us and surprisingly remembered us from our previous visits. Every moment during our stay was perfect. It was also pleasure to meet the GM, Pedro Tomas. Jokingly, my only complaint was that I was ready to book upon departure with hopes that there may be a huge discount. We are already planning on being back next year.

My family of five (kids 14, 11, 8) enjoyed a week at this lovely resort in mid March. This was our first experience at an all-inclusive. Overall, we really enjoyed the all-inclusive experience and loved the resort. Note: We did book the Preferred Family. The resort was the perfect size for us and never seemed crowded, except at prime dining times. Once we got our bearings after the first day, everything was quick and easy to get to. As "preferred" guests, we loved sitting in the preferred beach section most of the time and watching the more active section of the beach. We got a kick out of the entertainment...from a distance. It's not really our thing but it was fun to watch and not obnoxious at all. We enjoyed late afternoon time on the main beach though, once it had thinned out. All of the pools are great and we spent time in all of them except the adult only pool. Personally, I liked the Preferred pool the best and my two younger kids enjoyed the iceberg climbing structure in the infinity pool. However, most of our time was at the beach. The beach is gorgeous but it isn't a long walking beach. The water is crystal clear with little to no surf. Just to the right of the pier (as you face the water) is a reef with what we, as beginners, found to have great snorkeling! We went multiple times a day and saw a lot of fish, including a puffer fish. I did not see any turtles, rays, or starfish. Lots of urchins tucked deep in the coral so stay off the coral and wear flippers or water shoes. It isn't deep and there is a lot of sandy bottom space to stand. One other note about the beach. My 11 year old son was disappointed that the water trampoline that is advertised in the pictures was not there. The igloo at the pool made up for it though. The food/dining and drinks were fine. For breakfast we preferred The Seaside Grill to the buffet, but it's only available for breakfast for preferred guests. Lunch was my favorite because it was so easy. They have a grill right on the beach that serves great burgers or hotdogs and there is a serve yourself nacho stand there too. There's also a serve yourself pizza stand by the infinity pool which was really good. Loved that the kids could just grab something when hunger struck! At 1pm, they set up a buffet on the beach and grill something different every day. I definitely recommend waiting to see what that option is because it was delicious. For dinner, we tried all of the restaurants except Bordeaux (adult only) and The Jungle. Our first night we had a long wait at Seaside Grill. Avoid going to dinner at Seaside or Portofino (Italian) between 7 and 7:30 if you want to be seated quickly. We did not have waits at Oceana, Olio (adult only) or the Asian restaurants. Our favorite restaurants were Oceana and the Asian one. We did not love Olio. The buffet is ok but my husband and kids loved the desserts. By the end of the week we would go to dinner at a restaurant and then skip over to the buffet for dessert. The night we wanted to try The Jungle Restaurant it was closed because they were serving lobster on the beach. It looked really cool though. Overall, the food was not impressive but it was fine. I guess I was a little disappointed based on reviews I had read, but again, this was our first all-inclusive. The bars and bartenders/servers are great. Sometimes it was quicker and easier just to walk up to the bar and order. There was never a wait and and there is a bar around every corner. My one big disappointment was the wine. Not good. I really don't drink mixed drinks or beer so that was a bummer. You can buy bottles of better wine but that kind of defeats the purpose of the all-inclusive... The fitness center is more than adequate and I really enjoyed the water aerobics at noon. We did not use the spa. The biggest questions I had before we booked were whether the Preferred Club was worth it and where the buildings were located. The first question is a little difficult to answer. For me, it was worth the additional cost because it would have annoyed me to have places in the resort that were off limits. I appreciated the preferred beach because there were enough shade structures for every guest. But, the main beach is prettier and natural. The preferred beach is manmade and sits slightly above main beach. You walk down a few stone steps to the main beach to enter the water, unless you want to snorkel, then you can enter the water to the right of the pier where it's rocky. There is music and activity on the main beach that I think teenagers and young adults would like more than the preferred beach. The preferred beach is great for families with young kids 1-5yr. Although, my kids did prefer the preferred beach more. I think I would say, if it's in your budget, the preferred may be worth the additional cost if you want to be able to have more of a peaceful/quiet day. However, If it's not in your budget, you won't be missing anything. The main pools are beautiful and not crowded, there are plenty of bars, and the beach is gorgeous. Hope that helps. Buildings 5 and 7 are the preferred buildings. Like I said, nothing is too far. However, the one building that sits in front of the swim up bar may be something to consider because it may be loud?? I can't attest to any rooms except our own in building 5, but it was great. We were able to get two adjoining rooms. They were very clean, attractive, and the daily maid service was great. The only disappointment was how small the balcony was but it was not a big deal. One last thing, I definitely recommend renting (free) a kayak or peddle boat out on the water! It's so beautiful and fun! If we decide to return to the Dominican, we would definitely come back to Dreams La Romana. In fact, I chatted with a woman who was staying at the new Dreams resort just down the beach but had come over to see this resort. She liked Dreams La Romana much better.

What a beautiful and meticulously maintained resort. Everything is just so lush and there is so much to see within the resort. You name it, it is there. You could walk for hours and still have more to see. It is well laid out and the pools are huge and sparkling. The food at the buffet was great. Basically most of the food in the a la carte restaurants can be found in the buffet. The food in the buffet is perfectly prepared and delicious. There is a huge variety that changes daily. But be prepared to get your own drinks. There are tons of servers that are running around picking up plates and clearing tables. You might be greeted and ask for water but they certainly won't bring it to you anytime soon! By the 3rd day I was just going up to the servers area and getting my own water and coffee. We went to the seaside grill and watched the beautiful sunset while chewing our rubbery, burnt food. Eventually the waiter came over and I showed him my black stick. He said it was zucchini. I said it was burnt, and he said yes, it is very burnt and he left. We asked for new food after trying for quite a while to chew the meat and couldn't even cut our potato but the waiter ignored us. We ended up just going to the buffet. piece of advice, be very vocal if you are unhappy with something. We are too polite. The entertainment is not up to par at all for the brand. The worst was the 4 seasons show where the staff sit on these floating things go up on stage and stand around with fire sticks and weird dances with flowing fabrics. Everything is so long and drawn out and the show has absolutely no flow (or point). It was kind of stupid to be honest. Don't waste your time on this one. Dreams is well known for their fantastic entertainment and the entertainment here was similar to a high school talent show all week. I have no idea was is going on with the staff. Our entire 8 day trip we noticed that the staff was acting very depressed and gloomy. Even when we tried to engage them in a cheery conversation, they were very ho hum. When we had a problem with cockroach infestation, they acted like it was nothing. I guess it is because we don't have bugs in our home and they didn't realize that bugs crawling on the drapery over my head at night and being all through our toiletries was very upsetting to us. They advertise unlimited connectivity - we didn't have internet in our room for 4 days. They told us to go to the lobby or coco cafe if we wanted to use the internet. You need internet to call home, so we had to make all of our phone calls on speakerphone in the lobby. Super disappointed with their advertising. Gorgeous beach, way more loungers at all the pools and the shaded parts of the big beach than there are people so there is tons of room. We visited when the resort was fully booked and there was no crowding or lines anywhere at any time. We didn't have to wait for food, drinks or anything. We are members of UVC so we had a personal concierge. We travel to dreams and other AM resorts often so I can say that this resort is not a good example of a Dreams resort. For the price we paid for the basic room with our discount, we were very disappointed. We would have had a better time at a cheaper resort and we didn't get our money's worth at all. It was uncomfortable asking for help or service and I won't go back to this particular resort. If you have a problem, speak up and be persistent. We all spend a small fortune for a week away and we do deserve what the resort advertises. You will get a better impression of the resort brand if you stay somewhere else. The spa is a mess. Don't go outside because it gets worse. The people there are really nice though and give great massages and manicures.

Once a loyal client of Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana, I found out that Mr. Pedro Tomas the General Manager was promoted to Dreams La Romana. Well I must say that my expectations once again were tremendously exceeded. This was a girlfriends trip. A quick 40 minute ride from Punta Cana Airport. Dreams La Romana is a larger property. The layout is convenient and nothing is too far to walk from one place to another. The grounds a beautifully landscaped and maintained. Beach- The most amazing part of this resort for me is the breathtaking beach filled with palm trees and blue calm waters. This is the Caribbean side of the island. Simply gorgeous! Pools- There a 4 large pools including 2 preferred club pools, the main pool and a stunning infinity pool. Restaurants- Great food choices and Excellent service and food. Breakfast- Buffet, Seaside grill and Olio for preferred guests. Lunch- Pizza at main pool, Beach grill, Seaside grill, Olio for preferred guests Dinner- French. Italian Mediterranean.Dominican, Seafood, Steak and Buffett Co co cafe for coffes and snacks Entertainment- Amazing and non-stop! Zumba, Water aerobics on beach, Yoga, Vollyball and many more sports and game activities. Evening shows, dancing with the Entertainment staff!!! Fun! Live music,disco, casino, a lovely professional fire show and so much more. Room- I stayed in the preferred club adult section in a beautiful 2 room ocean view suite. We has access to a modern and lovely preferred club lounge for drinks and snacks. We also had butler service and a cell phone to contact them anytime!
