The overall appearance of the property is nice. The beach was nice. Our room was nice. Now to the terrible part, my husband reserved a king suite. Yefery, front desk rep, said he was checking us into a room with two double beds located at the front of the property which faces the street. We told him we wanted a king bed. He said the only king available was in an upgraded room in the preferred guest building that includes VIP perks etc. He showed us the room on his computer. We paid for the upgrade and it was $188.00 per night in addition to the rate we were already paying. He said the room wasn’t ready and for us to go have lunch and return later in the day and they would give us our room key. We had lunch and returned several hours later. We went to our upgraded room only to discover two DOUBLE beds! My husband called the front desk to inquire about the mixup. Yefery said that’s all they had available. So he took our payment for the upgrade and put us in a double room even though the reason we agreed to an upgrade was for a KING bed! He told us there was nothing he could do! I then spoke to him and asked how can we be compensated for such a mistake, he said he would call back. When he did call back, he said we can stay in the upgraded room, paying the $188 upgrade fee per night and they would send us a bottle of champagne?! I told him we don’t want a bottle of champagne and any champagne they had to offer us doesn’t cost $376 plus taxes and it’s an all-inclusive resort, so we can get a glass of champagne that we already paid for simply from booking an all-inclusive resort. I asked to speak to his manager. The front desk manager got on the phone and I explained to her what happened. She said they don’t offer any type of compensation and they can refund us our money for the upgrade and move us to the DOUBLE room in the front of the resort. I explained that was not an option and she’s missing the point. She then said she would give us a free late checkout at 5pm instead of 12 noon. I explained that is not helpful for us either. And she refused any other option. I asked to speak to her manager. She said she was the manager. I asked to speak to the General Manager, she said there isn’t one. I asked for the owners information and she said she can’t provide it to me. I told her I would research it myself and hung up. About 15 mins later, she called back and said she spoke to her supervisor (I thought she didn’t have one?) and they said they would refund us our upgrade fee and let us stay in the preferred room, as they should have from the beginning. The entire situation was unnecessary, stressful and a waste of a half a day! Later, we requested washcloths. Housekeeping said they would bring them. Three hours later, evening turndown knocked on the door, we asked her for some, she said she didn’t have any and they were being cleaned. The next morning, I called for washcloths and towels, they never came. That afternoon after the pool, I called again for the same thing, and they NEVER brought us any clean towels or washcloths. The people at the resort are too aggressive with trying to sell timeshare and get you to upgrade. At every moment, someone was trying to get us to buy something! Like it’s a flea market! We went for my birthday getaway, to relax and escape three crying children. Needless to say, mission failed. During checkout, we overheard one lady saying her room was robbed and $40 was missing from her suitcase! Another man was complaining about his two rooms having MOLD and how the resort tried to paint over the mold but he detected it anyway and that two days of his vacation was wasted dealing with this issue and was still not moved to another room on day three! We won’t go back or recommend this resort to anyone.

Our drive from Punta Cana airport gave us a chance to see the beautiful Dominican Republic landscape with the highway bordered by jungle and sugar cane plantations. We arrived at Dreams La Romana and felt immediately relaxed. Cute little lizards were fun to count on the way to lunch/dinner! The size of the resort is perfect, we were in block 4 next to the main pool with partial Seaview. The walk from the room to the pool, the beach or the main buffet restaurant (world cafe) was less than 5 mins. The beach is gorgeous and gently slopes into the water, perfect for young children. Lovely snorkeling with some big black fin jacks amongst others and saw a spotted ray. We could always get sun loungers even if not early enough for prime position! The pool is a great size, plenty of space to swim and a floating inflatable iceberg our daughter loved climbing! Great food, we loved the buffet, Himitsu (very nice sake) and Portofino in particular. The pizzeria by the pool is perfect if you don't want to change out of swims for lunch. Also the fresh fruit boat is awesome! All the staff were very friendly and smiley. We enjoyed the bachata lesson one evening whilst our daughter was watching a film with Explorers club. We went on 2 trips outside the resort horse riding through the jungle and a half day Nature Complete tour with seavis. The horse riding once in the jungle was fabulous and really interesting to see all the plants and trees and cacti. However, it would have been good to know in advance that to get from the ranch to the jungle is a 10min walk along the side of the road- not ideal with a six yr old and neither of us adults being very experienced on horseback. We would thoroughly recommend the nature complete tour, a half day trip so not too tiring in the heat. Beautiful scenery and fabulous to see and learn about the indigenous wildlife. Seeing a rhinoceros iguana on a rock topped it off! We had full body massage at the spa which we both thoroughly enjoyed. We would love to visit this beautiful country and resort again and have already recommended to friends who have now booked!

Had three rooms for family - all rooms had mold we had to leave. No ceiling fans, showers were discusting and the rooms were not properly cleaned. The gym was very outdated. We were told we got an "upgrade" think they meant "down grade" as our rooms were terrible pillows smelled awful - they could not provide new.

Having visited this Hotel 3 years ago, I decided to come back here to celebrate my 50th Birthday with my wife as we had such a great time last time. This time though, we upgraded to the Adults only, preferred club area which is featured in Blocks 1 and 2 at the far end of the Hotel. This turned out to be a great choice, as it wasn't built 3 years ago and we felt spoiled and looked after from the moment we entered the Adult Preferred Club section concierge area with a drink of choice welcome from the bar. ROOM : Ours was room 1117 which was in the first block, in the middle floor, in the middle area overlooking the gardens above the new swim out rooms which was very quiet and peaceful. We are not balcony people, however, it was roomy enough if that's your thing. We were welcomed with all the lovely toiletries, bath robes, slippers, etc. and the room was really nice with a huge comfy bed. There was nothing at all to fault about the room or the maid service who we left a dollar or two each day as a thank you. CONCIERGE : What a fantastic service and BLANCA at reception was always there to help us, as well as all the other girls who could not do enough for you. ANGEL in the mornings was a very nice guy, who always welcomed you and got you whatever you needed. This area provides snacks throughout the day and has a really nice selection of toast, breads, cheeses, hams, yoghurts and different hot foods each day. This is nice as its light and doesn't fill you up unlike what a trip to the main buffet restaurant would more than likely do ! ANTONIO is the man who looks after you in the afternoon and evening and once he gets to know your drinks, he never lets them go empty.....a really charming and helpful man. The POOL AREA : JUNIOR in the pool bar is also a really nice guy who always ensures you get what you want and there are always girls going around the pool getting you drinks if you are in a lazy mood. Only minor complaint I have regards to the pool area, is that there is an obvious ignorant issue with many guests who get up early and reserve sunbeds by placing their orange towels over the beds and never appear again until nearly lunchtime. They do have a pool attendant who does ensure that no children enter, and I was told that he does lift towels if he thinks the beds are being abused, however, on the whole, I would say 75% of the guests there do it which is quite annoying and sad....we are not in a Hotel in Spain ! The pool itself is very nice with waterfall features and it is nice to have no children around, however, it can get a bit loud at times when new Americans arrive and forget that there are other people around them, and that there are toilets only metres away ( I say this as I never saw them get out the pool all day which is not very nice and very disrespectful to other guests, especially the ones they are talking too ). The BEACH : It has changed a bit since we were last there with more large sun covered areas. There is now a preferred club area but again, the beds there get booked early by sad people which is a shame. The sea is fantastic for snorkelling which I loved to do every day. Lots of fish to see. What is also great about this hotel is any of the main sea trips depart from Bayahibe, so you get picked up at the beach area by the hotel......Saona Island trip is a must which we have done many times when visiting this country. RESTAURANTS : There are several to choose from. There is the OLIO which is closest to the Adults only area. This used to be the Mexican restaurant when we were last here. We liked sometimes going there for a simple Burger and fries which was really good although they do offer this service to you around the pool area. The Seaside Grill was one of our favourites for lunch or dinner and the Italian is also really good with Judith who looked after us. The main buffet is always good and we liked to go there most days for lunch as it was good to try different things with some wine and take our time to chill and relax. We really got into the Sushi which was really first class and well presented with everything you would want including the WASABI !! For my Birthday, they had decorated our room, left some champagne on ice and some little cakes which was a really nice touch.... thanks VANESSA !! For our meal at night I had a surprise when a large cake arrived from the team at the Asian Restaurant all singing and dancing....this was something BLANCA had arranged which I found out after we took the cake back to share with them all in the Concierge area. SPA AREA : My wife enjoyed a Two for One deal where she had a two full hour massages on two different days. Just ask for the deal and you should get it OK. We also had a couples massage for my Birthday where they threw in a free FISH treatment where the little fish nibble on your feet / legs which initially I was not too buoyant about. The treatments were excellent, Swedish massages where you have your own air-conditioned room with all the nice smells, music, etc. You can also use the outside spa / plunge pool which is nice. This is a really nice SPA area to use and not too expensive ( around $90 - $100 ) ENTERTAINMENT : We never went to any of the shows this year, we just never got around to it as by the time we ate and had a drink back at our Preferred area, it wasn't worth it, but I know we really liked them last time we were here. SMALL TIP TO MANAGEMENT : 3 years ago, you had a very nice house red wine that we really enjoyed, but sadly, your current house red wine is pretty awful, and as we only really drink red wine, we found it frustrating to try and get the waiters to find us a different one, which they always tried very hard to do ( especially ANTONIO and VICTOR ). You offer Premium Spirits and Premium Beers to the Preferred Club guests, but no PREMIUM wine which you need to address please. Small point in the scheme of our overall holiday, but it would have been excellent to have had some nice wine with our meals ( although we did buy some from the lists some nights ). THOMSON REP : He was very helpful, local and very cheery ( Victor was his name ) and he offered really good advice or assistance if you needed it. OTHER POOL AREAS : These are still very nice however, we were so comfortable at the Preferred pool that we did not venture into the Infinity or main pool at all ( note that as Preferred, you can use the other Preferred pool at the other end of the Hotel but that does have children ). SUMMARY We had a fantastic time again, the upgrade was really worth it in our view. More peaceful and private and always a bonus not having children screaming around. The people we have mentioned above were outstanding in their roles and they really worked hard to make our holiday memorable. I would also like to say a big thank you to all the staff at the hotel who additionally we could see were all working hard and the CHEFS did a fantastic job in not only the quality off their food, but the presentation of it all which I may add, neither of us had any upset tummys at all during our stay. THANK YOU DREAMS LA ROMANA AGAIN FOR A FANTASTIC 50TH BIRTHDAY HOLIDAY. SEE YOU NEXT TIME....ADIOS AMIGOS !!
