    I stayed at Dreams Dominicus for over a week in late feb. after a much needed vacation with a couple of friends that always travel together and it was a true Dream experience after visit a couple of amresorts in the past last year we decided to come UVC members and being this the firts time using our membership we know me made the right decision. The UVC concierges contact us beforehand and what an amazing welcoming we had, all of them were always checking on us we received a beautiful room upgrade all accordingly upon our requests. The call us every other day making us feel like home. We were place a members banner on the door and had a nice welcome amenities on our rooms. Our favorite restaurants where the fly & fish and the himitsu. The only thing that we think can be work on it the staff it seemed to be understaffed and few of them seems tired and all over the place, some of the food at the buffet was cold and the chef few of them didn't see to be happy or enjoying their job, which is sad cause sometimes makes you feel like you are bothering them. -However most of the staff at the pool were wonderful, the beach is gorgeous and the hotel is not to loud. The entertainment staff is incredible as well. Thanks to all the UVC staff (Stephie, Starling, Lucia and Liz) for the amazing work you do and the smiles and pampering you gave us. Thanks to Milton at the lobby bar and lisaura, Eddy at the restaurant you all truly enjoy what you do and as well to the entertainment staff specially JC and Mickey our Housekeeping lady's and to Mr. Edwin blanco, Maxaida and Kenia from the management team. Hope to go back soon!!

    Relaxing vacation - pros/cons

    My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon with another couple who also stayed at the resort, so we have a bit more perspective regarding the resort. The Pros: The best part of this resort was the employees - Geraldo at the Marlin Bar (preferred only) and Yeralki the bartender/server at the middle pool made the experience for us. On our last day, Yeralki made us an amazing frozen passionfruit drink that was delicious; each day he remembered us and what we would like, even if it was water. Geraldo did an amazing job making our drinks just like we were at home! Without these two our experience would not have been the same. Unlike many other reviews, we enjoyed the food that we were able to get at the resort. However, I would not recommend the main buffet. If you are looking for better food, you must upgrade to preferred so that you have access to the preferred beach bar. We went there for most meals. At this resort, we did not have much trouble finding a place to sit by the pool or beach (preferred) which was great. Another amazing perk of this resort is NO WRISTBANDS - not sure we will ever be able to go back to a wristband required resort! The cons: Towels were hard to find if you didn't get the right away in the morning, easier access to towel if you are preferred. Lunch doesn't start until 12:30pm and only the preferred beach bar and main buffet are open for lunch. Between 2:30ish PM and 6PM food is impossible to find and the room service menu is very short with no snacking options. The housekeeping came for us while we were at the pool or beach during the day, but didn't make it to our friends' room until after we got back and needed to shower. I found that the rooms were a little rough looking and the location of our room was loud at night due to the entertainment taking place at night, but usually ended by 10:30PM.

    My Boyfriend and I returned from Dreams Dominicus La Romana about a week ago. We enjoyed our room a lot, very large room; that had everything we needed. We were on the third floor, so lots of stairs. There are no elevators, so if you has any mobility issues you may want to request the first floor. The beach is one of the nicest beaches we have ever been to. So calm and gorgeous with hardly any rocks. We brought our own snorkel gear and went snorkeling every day for a few hours. If you swim out to the rope there are amazing fish, right at the resort; what a treat! Never had a problem finding a chair at the pool or the beach, we often got to the pool or ocean around 11. So pretty late, and still no issue. We did sometimes have a hard time finding towels. They did have a very nice hot tub at the quite pool, it was very nice and hot. Only issue was, they always closed the pools at 6pm; which was a bit early for my liking. The food was probably the worst we have had at an all inclusive. We never went hungry, just not our favourite resort for food. The staff are amazing, such lovely people everywhere. We really looked forward to seeing Nordy at the quite pool everyday. The resort is very relaxed, not a lot going on. So depends on what kind of vacation you are looking for. Overall I would rate this hotel a 3.5.

    We were treated like Royalty with our every need or wish granted. The staff at this hotel make this location really a wonderful experience. Mercedes was awesome and made sure that every excursion we wanted was booked perfectly, scheduled our dinners and really just made sure we had the best vacation! The beach is absolutely beautiful at this Dreams hotel as well making it our favorite so far!

    Lovely place

    Clean well kept and wonderful people. EDDY at the buffet was fantastic, a true gentleman! The food was good and always plentiful. We will certainly go back and do it all again hopefully with all my family. Thanks
