Best vacation ever

Gsabino92 on Jan 26, 2023

The servers throughout the beach were top tier and the room stay cleaned truthfully have no complaints and I’m definitely coming back to this top tier location. Always serving us drinks and making sure we okay through our stay. Also the cleaning lady comes around 8pl to see if we need anything

Very good all round experience at Dreams Dominicus

354patrickh (Dublin, Ireland) on Jan 23, 2023

I was a bit unsure what to expect after reading a mixture of both great and some slightly negative reviews here before my trip but after being there myself very recently (Jan 2023) I can honestly say it is quite a good resort. The staff are wonderful. They are all very kind, friendly and genuinely helpful. They are almost always smiling and saying hello as they pass by. Everyone had at the very least a reasonable standard of English which was great for those of us linguistically challenged! The beach and pool areas are very nice - especially the preferred club beach area - not too crowded, clean and well maintained and very relaxing. There could be more loungers around the pools however, as most of the better spots were all taken quite early in the morning. We did not have issues with a lack of beach towels on our visit. My room was very spacious and generally clean but a little worn in places and could do with a bit more care and attention. There were minor issues with the safety deposit box and the TV but once I informed front desk, these issues were rectified very very quickly. The food was good. Once or twice we were disappointed with some of the buffet items but generally the standard is good and the choice is wide-ranging. Amongst other things, we especially liked the eggs/omelettes which are prepared freshly for you each morning if you wish, and there's a nice pasta station at the World Cafe lunch buffet where your pasta dish with sauce combination of choice can be prepared freshly for you. There are options for most types of dietary requirements, and it was great to see a range of non-dairy milks available too. We tried all of the specialty restaurants where the food was good and service very good. Only twice in the week did we have to wait for these, and it was no more than 20 minutes. The wait times we were told were accurate. We just went off and got a drink while we waited. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would consider this hotel again in future.

Return to La Romana

Brookefromcanada (Ontario, Canada) on Jan 19, 2023

Myself and two daughters (14/9) travelled to Dreams Dominicus La Romana from January 8-15 2023. Absolutely amazing. Beautiful grounds, the hotel itself was clean and our room was perfect. We ate at the buffet (world cafe)… huge selection everyday. Nestor Williams was incredibly helpful… he was very kind and genuine,a very hard worker. The entertainment was amazing… Black chocolate, Freddie Krueger and Coco were awesome. The beach and the pools were beautiful and very clean. The only wish we had was that there was more chairs around the main pool. We spent most of our time either at the main pool or the beach. Great resort to travel to with kids. We did the Monkey excursion which I would absolutely recommend… amazing for families to attend. The resort is close to the airport. We did a private transfer back to the airport to extend our time slightly out last day… our resort was last to be dropped off and we didn’t want to be the first pickup. We will return to Dreams. 10/10 recommendation.

Probably better places to spend your money.

Stayed here 5 nights in January 2023. The property is well kept, with a stunning location. The beach in the Dominican Republic is one of the best in the Caribbean. We had trouble with our reservation (they had us leaving a day early), and it took 3 visits to the front desk to sort it out. Room was relatively nice overall. We got a "garden view", which was essentially a view of the building beside us. We rarely had hot water in the shower. Staff overall were very friendly and service oriented (much better than at other resorts). Staff and people in the Dominican Republic are very friendly/family welcoming people. Kids will always have their food first, and people will always engage with kids in a positive way. Food was hit or miss. The Italian restaurant is a no. The Japanese restaurant offers a great experience. I was very careful with what I ate in the main dining room as some people in our group got sick. Coffee was pretty good if you go to the cafe. There was a kids menu at most places. This hotel is about an hour from the airport. Make sure to arrange transport before you arrive, or you will overpay (its a bit hectic at the taxi area). Our airport experience was ok. Bags arrived pretty quickly. But make sure to fill out your customs electronic forms (arrival/ departure) (all electronic, or you will have a problem checking into your flight). Give yourself time to get to the airport as there seems to be lots of extra security checks when compared to other countries including a dog check of all carry on luggage.
