Dreams Punta Cana Brides

Recommended Posts

Carynlesniak,

Congrats on your wedding. I am getting married there in 2 weeks and have a couple of questions for you.

 

Was there a nicer/newer section of the hotel?

What hotel room/section did you stay in?

Did you get married on the beach or gazebo?

What wedding package did you choose?

Carynlesniak,

 

Thank you so much for your honesty and congrats on becoming a Mrs.!! I am not going to lie, I am a bit discouraged now, but there is no going back so I guess I'll have to deal with whatever happens. I am looking forward to the answers to Tam's questions.

holy moly... i took 2 weeks off from the forum and there's no way i'm going back to catch up!!

 

i just read Carynlesniak's review and while i agree that it's discouraging, i have heard that dreams is more than happy to change your room if you don't like it when you get there and they have enough availability. i also heard that they are in the process of renovating all of the rooms, but have only gotten through half or so right now so some of the rooms are really nice and others need to be updated. i'm trying not to be discouraged only because i know we won't be in our rooms much. lesson learned though i guess... don't leave stuff on the floor :)

 

i did manage to get done most of what i could by last night (my deadline). my to do list still looks daunting, but it includes everything from scheduling boarding for my dogs to using teeth whiteners and packing, so hopefully it's all i'll need!

That review was a little discouraging but I have stayed at Dreams before and maybe we were lucky not to run into any bad rooms, my sisters wedding suite was beautiful, and both our rooms were very nice! Our rooms were located on the right side of the pool...so maybe thats the newer side who knows.

 

Don't be discouraged ladies and stay off TRIPADVISOR! People only go on their to complain.

 

Happy New Year!

oh I definitely know about that Jenn! We absolutely love Bahia Principe in San Juan, but it gets realy bad reviews on trip advisor. Its true that people who write on there are usually looking for a place to vent their bad experience. And, you can never please everyone, nor should you try! :) I will be interested to hear more details though!

Oh I would also like to let you brides know that even though Dreams Punta Cana gets some bad reviews they rank 18 out of 98 hotels in Punta Cana!!!!!!! Therefore, I would truly like to believe that in some aspects or areas they must be good at.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
