Dreams Palm Beach?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

So my fiance and I are basically deciding between the 2 Dreams resorts in Punta Cana. I see a lot of posts on Dreams Punta Cana, but not much on Dreams Palm Beach. Just wondering if anyone has been there, or had there wedding their, and what they thought? We're going on a planning trip in June to see both, but it would be great to hear it from any of you! Any information would be great! :0)

 

Thanks!

 

Tara

Good Morning Tratoons! I was wondering the same thing. I know that Dreams Palm Beach is much closer to the airport. I have my wedding date reserved at the Majestic but they still don't have room rates available so I am looking at the 2 Dreams Resorts as backup since they do have thier room rates out. I hope someone out there has info on Palm Beach!

I think that Dreams Palm Beach only recently opened it doors so that's probably why there isn't too much information out there for you. The Dreams Punta Cana resort is gorgeous! You probably won't go wrong with either one of them.

 

I would try tripadvisor for reviews on Dreams Palm Beach. They also have pictures taken by travellers! Have fun looking.

Hey everyone!

 

Well Dreams Palm Beach was formerly Sunscape Punta Cana. They just changed over in December of 2008, so I'm sure that's why there's not much information, but if anyone knows anything about it, please post! From what I've heard/seen, the Dreams resorts are cheaper than the Majestic (though the Majestic is beautiful), but also, Dreams Palm Beach appears to be cheaper than Dreams Punta Cana. Anyway, I'm heading there mid-June, so I will add some information and photos (if I can figure out how! :0P) when I get back!

I have been seriously considering Dreams Palm Beach. It seems to have been remodeled when it became Dreams in 2008, so everything looks very nice. I would love to hear from anyone who has been married or attended a wedding there.

Thanks!

Well I'm glad to see some other people interested in Dreams Palm Beach! Let's pool any information we get regarding Dreams Palm Beach, since there isn't a lot out there! As I said, I will post a review of the resort after I go in June. I'm really hoping I love it, since it's only 10 minutes from the airport! :0)

I contacted the wedding coordinator at this resort and they got back to me right away and actually my travel agent is down there right now. I will check to see what information the wedding coordinator sent me and see if it is anything different than what is on the website. I will also let you know what my travel agent says.

The Melia Caribe and Dreams Palm Beach are my top two resort choices right now, so I've been in touch with the WC, Melani, there as well and let me just tell you that if I could pick a resort based on the WC communication alone I think I would pick Dreams Palm Beach! She's been great, and the pricing there is so reasonable. My FI reallys wants to go to the Melia because of the free golf but I am secretly (er, ok, maybe not so secretly!) hoping that the travel pricing will be better for Dreams Palm Beach so we can go there instead :)

    • Economics as a career is highly rewarding in the current environment. We need economists to study agriculture in an increasingly changing global weather patterns, decode financial implications of economic plans as well as help the government formulates administrative policies. Economics Honours graduates are in high demand in almost every Fortune 500 company as well for top government jobs. The options with this degree are endless.   If you are among those thousands of students looking for a career as an Economics Honours graduate but have no idea how - don’t worry. We have got you covered! Read on to know all about one of India’s most preferred courses and what are the career options after economics honours (some really fancy ones!) that open up for you with an Economics Honours degree.
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far?
