6.7 Good
Pros: The staff was very attentive, the private beach was amazing, it was very secure, it was very easy to move around, and there was entertainment available every night.
Cons: The room had a few issues. Maintenance had to be called because the bathroom sink had a bad leak. The shower wouldn’t drain effectively, so it had to be cleaned. There was a constant smell of construction, or paint, causing both mine and my wife’s sinuses to be affected. And the refrigerator did not cool effectively, nor was it big enough to place a small plate of fruit within it.

Pros: Location is excellent Staff is really friendly

The beach is incredible, the pools are so fun, lots of bars on property, the room was large and exactly what we needed, an incredible vacation start to finish.

5.0 Okay
Pros: friendly staff. main buffet food was good (except the fruit). I would recommend the hotel if it were cleaner and drinks were better.
Cons: I booked an all inclusive deluxe room with pool view...there was no view! ROOM was dirty overall:curtains had mildew on it, decorative pillows were also smelly, decorative ottoman was very nasty. The inclusive drinks were HORRID! I had to drink beer.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: The two things that made us choose this hotel were: location (Bahyahibe/Caribbean) and the bathtub in the room. It was a surprise for us to be VIP guests and the differences among levels of guests are visible (in loco and online reviews). Anibel - our barmaid was a special gift for our stay. Always attentive, pleasant and happy. Her mojito will remain in our memories - five stars!!
Cons: The food and restaurants. Living in a big city we have great food at our disposal anytime, but the experience in the Dominican Republic was very poor. We expected a variety of seafood, but what we got was very frustrating. The VIP Restaurant could have AC to offer more comfort during the meals.
4.6 Okay
Pros: Beautiful hotel, not clean.
Cons: Not clean enough.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: This property has an old style. This is nothing compare to the online photos. The worst place that I ever been. This hotel has to be out of service is only giving a bad reputation to the country. PS Americans don’t come here
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The animation team was excellent! They were friendly, outgoing, and inclusive of all ages, gender and abilities. They did a great job of interacting with the many different languages of the tourists. They were truly a pleasure to interact with. Also, all the different birds on the property were fun to watch. There were baby turkeys and baby ducks without mommas when I visited. The peacock was beautiful. I always felt safe all the time. There security staff at all locations throughout the resort.
Cons: The food on the buffet tasted okay but it was luke warm at best but never hot. Getting food directly from the grill at the buffets (any time of day) was best.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We loved the landscape. It felt like we were in a park. The birds, ducks, little fuzzy yellow ducklings, geese, turtles, egrets, peacocks, wild turkeys, and fish. Almost after every meal, we could take bread from the restaurant and feed the animals. Watching the birds fighting for the bread crumbs thrown into the air was unforgettable. The beach was wonderful. You can swim to the boulder-like concrete structures with holes in them to create a man-made reef and snorkel. Not a lot fish, but it was wonderful to be able to do it every day. The staff was very friendly. Even though I don’t like resort entertainment, they did a wonderful job.
Cons: Food was mediocre. The buffet was manageable since there was enough variety to choose from. The Mediterranean restaurant was ok. The food at the Japanese and Mexican restaurant was not good at all. Mexican food was not at all close to the Mexican food. Same goes to the Japanese restaurant. We did not try the Brazilian restaurant.

Cons: The buffet was not very good and it lacked diversity. They didn’t have seafood at all during our one week stay. The rooms are poorly isolated(we could hear the person in the room next to us snoring) and a little outdated. The animations at the theatre are a joke.

Pros: Friendly staff, nice Beach.
Cons: Needs updating, better mattress and even most of the restaurants are still a buffet.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is the hotel for during our Dominicana trip 2020. All staff in the hotel is on the highest level! Tasty and variable food and drinks, nice hotel pools and good beach area.
Cons: The number of umbrellas on the beach front is quite limited so if you want to grab some - wake up at 6-7 am and place your own towel on free one as usually people who stay for a long period do.
8.0 Excellent
Cons: Staff was quite moody and distracted, often giving an attitude when approaching them speaking English. We found a way to mitigate by adding simple Spanish greetings and praising them often, but that should not be necessary.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful beach, modern, adult only, lots of ala cart restaurant options and no need to pre book.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved the beach, staff is great and food is awesome. Missing this right now, hopefully will return after the quarantine.
7.1 Good
Pros: The room was outdated but clean. Bottled water gets stocked up daily by cleaning staff. Food wasn't bad. The beach is AWESOME. So is the pool! I loved the fact that they offer you a key to the courtesy room while you wait for your room to be ready. There you can take a shower and change. They also give you a bracelet right away, so you can enjoy the restaurants before you even get to your room.
Cons: We had the room that hasn't gone through renovation yet, although they are working day and night on renovating other buildings and many have been done already, it's just that we got the old one for our stay. Staff does NOT speak English. You must speak Spanish or Italian and you will not have a problem.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Stayed at the hotel many times. The beach is amazing as always, you have wide variety of food and drinks, entertainment team is also super nice, the swimming pool was just renovated and a new bar is open in the swimming pool. Hotel is perfect for the stay with small children, there is a play room with a lot of toys you can use and mini disco in the evening. The room we stayed in could use renovation of bathroom and air conditioning.

7.3 Good
Pros: The staff was excellent, food was good, I was given what I asked for which were closest rooms to pool area. The beach was outstanding, clear waters.
Cons: I had a problem at one of the stores, I bought a ceramic which was that bad quality that it broke up 10 minutes after bought at other store just by placing the bag on counter, I took it back to ask for a change I had a negative impression from Ingris. I discused it at lobby but I was clear, I had had a wonderfull time at hotel and great service for the money I felt I end up owing to the hotel and I would not make a problem out of it , I just wanted them to know.
6.0 Good
Pros: beach
Cons: food is terrible
5.7 Okay
Pros: The Spa experience is a good take away for us.
Cons: Inaccurate information given from tour guides to push their products. Our servers were horrible at best. Seems there need to be some training to demonstrate that all customers should be treated equally. We observed on multiple occassions how we were treated differently in comparison to other guest. There won't be a repeat for us to Dreams La Romana.
6.0 Good
Pros: Birds and nature if they were any.
Cons: Noisy and breakfast was the same. Maybe should change theme of breakfast
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This resort was wonderful. The beach was absolutely gorgeous and huge! It took 5 minutes to walk the stretch from one end of the resort to the other. The food was top-notch - we tried 4 of the 7 restaurants while we were there and all the food we got was delicious! Tip - ask for recommendations - some of the plated meals at the restaurants were better than others, and the wait staff were able to easily point you in the right direction. Also, my husband is a big guy and learned that he could order 2 appetizers if he wanted to, which made him very happy. We did end up with the preferred package, which actually offered a lot of perks. We had our own private pool (with pool bar), our own private area on the beach, and a 'clubhouse' that we could go to for appetizers and drinks. We were there during march madness, and the clubhouse was extra nice because we could go there and get a prime couch spot to watch a couple of games. The bartender in the preferred club was also very good - he remembered my husband and my dad (we also travelled with my parents) and came and asked them if they wanted the same drinks each time we walked in. Speaking of bartenders, they were all very good - they made delicious drinks (try the drink of the day), were willing to customize them, and knew a wide variety of drinks (we ordered Caipirinhas and every bartender knew how to make them). Overall, this resort was wonderful, and we had a really great stay.
Cons: This resort was very large, which didn't bother us (more food, pool, and beach options), but could be a downside for some. The only thing that was slightly annoying was the number of people they let into the resort to sell you things. At other all-inclusives I've been at, they limit the sales function to the lobby, and at Dreams, there were people by the pool and on the beach walking around to try to get you to go on excursions. They were not overly pushy, so it wasn't a huge inconvenience. There is also an office in the resort where they try to sell you timeshares. One of the staff in the lobby tried to get us reeled in, but was willing to let us walk away (she was a little bit more pushy than the others who were selling things, but we only heard from her once - she didn't come up to us again after we walked away). Again, it's not the end of the world to say no and walk away from anyone trying to sell you something on vacation - it just may be a bigger deal to some people than to others.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Customer service was excellent. The staff was trained to accommodate any requests. Also the food was excellent and the selection of food was extensive.
Cons: At times vendors trying to sell time shares, excursions, etc. were a little intrusive, but probably not outside the limits when compared to other resorts.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Me hospede en el hotel por que unos amigos se casaban en el mismo, nunca espere que el hotel fuera tan excelente, comida buena, fresca y variada, bebidas premium, el personal muy atento. El servicio de concierge excelente el sr Carlos King me ayudó mucho con algo que se me extravío y lo recupere. En resumen mi experiencia fue muy placentera y recomiendo Dreams La Romana 100% para unas buenas vacaciones ya sea que quieras descansar o hacer diversas actividades o ambas.
Cons: No hubo nada que no me gustara

Yes it was in the contract - but last thing, tiny print. But who charges for electricity?!! Add it to the fee!!! In addition we bought the breakfast but didn't know we would be 2 miles away, would need to wait for them to pick us up, wouldn't answer the phone numbers they gave me - I texted or called and they only answered a number I found after spending 15 minutes looking for an alternative one on-line.

Featured amenities include limo/town car service, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff.

7.9 Good
Pros: The hotel is rather pretty, the territory is nice. The beach is very cool! I liked the fact that the hotel is quite far from anything else, so you do not feel like the sea is crowded. I liked the food, too. The buffet does not have too many items, but they are well made. The stuff at the reception were the best — they helped us with every single issue we had and were really friendly.
Cons: Every service takes a lot of time. Sometimes we had to eat our food with no drinks, because waiters were too busy and could not help us. Towels, shampoos and soaps are very unstable — very often they run out of supplies and there were only hand towels in the room, or no shampoos. The pool bar was closed all the time we were staying at the hotel.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The best of the hotel is the front beach, very peaceful and nice, you can have the feeling that you are alone. Swimming pool was also very good. The buffet was a little bit scarce but you have all the necessary and everything was very tasty
Cons: The worst is that they don’t do much maintenance and as such many things do not work: the room telephone, hair dryers have been removed, the printer and payment terminal did not work on arrival, windows did not close properly, the water from the shower came out inconsistently and it was always too hot. The other thing I found really annoying was the music at the beach bar, it was extremely loud and the music wasn’t nice, quite the opposite to “relax”, “chill”, or “fun/entertainment”. I was trying to read a book and it was almost impossible, only with my earphones on.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice quiet green resort with own beautiful private beach in the midst of palms, big swimming pool and Aquapark for kids! Friendly staff! Very good restaurant on the beach with exceptional view to amazing Caribbean sea! Big clean comfortable apartment with big balcony. Elevator.
