Not all that, McDonnalds in PC

Made a mistake for what we wanted. It was all american resort, couples and older folks. If you like that and are with kids, this is a great place. But if you wan to have the DR experiance, not the place for it. The serve Burgers and HotDogs on the beach!!!

Friendly Staff

All staff members were very friendly. The rooms have a nice contemporary look but was very damp with a lot of mosquitos. The plumbing also did not work well, our tub was 1/5 filled everytime we took a shower, the water just did not go down well. Overall, the level of service could be better. For ex, the mini bar was supposed to be re-stocked everyday but wasn't and when we requested it to be re-stocked, we had to call several times. We also had to call several times about the bathtub issue.

Beautiful vacation spot

This was a beautiful resort with a beautiful beach and great pools. Also liked the swim-up bar in the pool. The Spa services were very nice and reasonably priced. The only negative was that many of the activities were not "all inclusive" compared to other "all inclusive" resorts we have visited. At Dreams Palm Beach you can either book via the concierge desk or there are many people on the beach selling various activities. So if you are looking for adventure trips, glass bottom boat trips, horseback riding, etc, remember to budget at least $500 USD extra. The vendors on the beach were a little aggressive at times and there were many of them. But when we stayed closer to the hotel on the beach, they didn't bother us. The only activities included in hotel price was 30min windsurfing and 30min canoeing (to my knowledge, there may have been a few more). The entertainment staff was EXCELLENT! There was plenty entertainment all day and night (much better than other resorts we have been to). Daily schedules are left in your room showing different events for that day for both adults and children.

Try to bring everything from home! The gift shop was very expensive and they were not interested in bargaining. Mostly in DR you can bargain the price down but not really in the gift shop. We forgot sun screen and had to pay $18 USD for 118ml or 4oz.

Wonderful experience

We spent most of the time on the beach which was beautiful. Workers came by atleast twice a day to pick up seaweed so the beach was clean. Plenty of chairs, huts and towels. The pools were great as was the poolside bar. The staff made the trip an even better experience. Everyone was so polite and hard-working and it was appreciated. There was always a staff member around if you needed something. We were in the preferred club and check in was quick and simple. When we got to our room the batteries were out in our safe and our mini bar wasn't fully stocked so we made a call to the front desk and both were taken care of in 5 minutes! We didn't do any of the activities (we just loved the pool and beach) but there was plenty to do all day and night. We ate at all of the restaurants except the Asian one and they were all good. Make sure you bring some singles to tip the staff. They are very friendly and accommodating so you won't mind giving them a couple bucks. There was a slight odor in the room due to the humidity, so you may want to bring a candle. Also, make sure you try some [...] from the bar!

Bring the essentials (such as toiletries, sunscreen, etc) because they are expensive to buy at the resort.

You get what you pay for

The hotel was o.k. After to traveling to several other islands, it's possible our expectations were a bit too high for the price we paid. The only major complaint was the food. Although there were 5 different restaurants, all of the food tasted pretty much the same. I found hair on my food at one place only to find a bug on my plate once they took the hairy food away. The buffet, although initially impressive, got old quick. Most of the food was either luke warm, over cooked, under cooked, or had a re-heated taste. The food prepared fresh at the grills at the buffet, but with a limited selection became not nearly as appealing after 8 days. Like most islands in the Caribbean, there's not cream to be found anywhere. So, if you like you're coffee light, look elsewhere. To say the coffee was strong was and understatement....it was downright potent! The resort itself was a decent size. The pools were nice and clean. There also seemed to be a fair amount of things to do, although most of the activities we participated in were off the resort excursions. Our room was located directley across from the kids playground and babysitting center. Not exactly what I would call and ideal location. Kids do have a tendency to be loud when there's a large group of them. I'm reasonably certain, however, if I requested, the staff would have changed our room. The rooms were clean and well kept. The shower was very poorly designed as it was difficult to keep the water in the shower! The rooms didn't keep out the noise from the hallways very well and you could hear pretty clear conversations from the neighbors upstairs via the bathroom vent. I'd have to say our overall experience was ok. The staff was incredibly helpful, friendly, and polite. If you're looking for a cheap getaway, this isn't a bad deal for the price.

Most people dressed up for dinner. You don't need a tuxedo but you might feel out of place if all you bring is flip flops and shorts.Men cannot get into the restaurants with shorts or shirts without collars.

The greatest honeymoon spot on earth

The resort was great. My husband and I did the funny monster tour which was really good, the party boat which was great, the shows in the conventional center which was very entertaining, sports in the pool, on the beach, dancing at desire and we enjoy the world cafe the most in all the resturants. Most of all we enjoyed the endless food and drinks.

The best vacation

This hotel was great! The location and the staff were awesome. The pools were big and the beach was great. The only thing is you have to get up early to get your self a chair and umbrella but other than that it was good. It is kinda of expensive if you want to bring gifts back so be prepared to spend alot. I know what to expect but i would definetly go back again!
