Does anyone know what is the deal with the renovated (blue decor) deluxe garden view rooms versus the (brown) older decorated rooms? Are they different at all? I think I read that the older decor (brown)

has a bath tub in the bathroom and the newer (blue) only have a shower...does anyone know?

 

I was also wondering which blocks already had the blue renovated rooms...

 

I would love if anyone that has already been there could share their room pictures...i tried looking up online but I am a little confused right now...

 

Thanks ladies!!!

I am doing OOT bags - I chose tote bags instead of paper bags because I thought people might be able to use them for beach bags while they are there.  I am putting the usual stuff in them:  first aid kit, personalized cup, wipes for cleaning sunglasses, towel, welcome letter, itinerary, hand sanitizer, mini sunscreen.  I was also thinking of adding a room spray from bath and body works (they are small) and "solemates" for the ladies (covers for high heels so they don't sink in the grass...since our ceremony is at the gazebo!)

 

I wanted stuff that could be used while we are down there so not everything from the bag has to be packed back home in their suitcases.

I haven't been there yet, but I emailed the resort to ask about this a while ago and they suggested that you request a newly renovated room at check in because the message doesn't always get there if you ask your travel agent to request it for you.  From what I understand the building blocks with higher numbers are more likely to have the renovated rooms (building 4, 5 etc), apparently Building 3 has more of the older rooms but I could be wrong!

Hope this helps!

Dressa,

 

The pictures of the rooms can be found here: http://www.dreamsresorts.com/drelr/guest-rooms.html

Renovated rooms are located in buildings 2, 4, 5 and 7 from what I last heard.  Buildings 5 and 7 are part of the preferred club that comes with additional amenities and it costs more to stay in the preferred club.

I stayed at the resort 3 times and always in a non-renovated room and never had a problem.  Bathroom was always nice with marble counterops and newer fixtures and I didn't think that the decor was outdated, though there were other opinions stated earlier in the thread.  I am going again in late May and will see which building I am placed at and will take some pictures at that time.

I don't think that you can request a specific building ahead of time, but you might be able to negotiate at check-in.

 

Hope this helps.

Ladies I am very excited!! just got some samples of what my invitation will look it from a girl I am working with in the Dominican Republic.  I previously posted a pic of what I wanted my invitations to be based on which is this one :

Of course it is not done yet but I am sooo excited to see the finished product :) She works in the Dominican Republic and is starting off her business and I believe I am her second customer for a wedding.  She is very nice and great to work with.

Hi, I just got married at Dreams La Romana on Wednesday, and I am beyond happy that I didn't go with the onsite photographer. I used Karina Jensen, she has a website, and my pictures turned out amazing for less that half the cost. I got the 50 prints from the resort photographer, and they were printed on cheap paper, which made them very poor quality. I asked about getting a CD of just those 50 prints and they told me it would be $200 US! I told them to forget it and have not shown anyone those pics since, cause the quality is so horrible. Go with Karina Jensen, she took over 700 pictures for us, and they are so beautiful!! And her prices are great also!
