    I am getting different information on the travel times there from Punta Cana. One TA says 90 mins another one said 2 hours and another one said 2 hrs and 15 mins. I dont really want to have our party travel for more then 90 mins. Please if anyone knows.

    Thanks
    Nicole

      I have heard between 90 min to 2 hours. i think it mostly depends on if they stop for drinks/food on the way.

        We went there last year and it took us about 2 hours to get back to La Romana. Are you asking about the travel time from Punta Cana to Dreams La Romana?

          Most websites say 75 minutes from the airport to Dreams La Romana... but as mentioned above stopping for drinks/food could make it longer - and probably more fun!!

            From the Punta Cana Airport to Dreams La Romana. Thats what we have been hearing but from this one travel agent who is 100 percent positive that it is 2 and 1/2 hours.... So I think we may just deal with the other ones because she seems to pushing us to resorts we already told her we didn't want to go to...

              Let me know what you conclude from this Nicole8. I am looking at this resort for my wedding too, but the travel time from Punta Cana Airport is a bit of a turn off. And the fact that beach is very short and lacks sand. It's also right beside a crazy public beach from what i'm finding in my research. But the price is right from Wpg (where we'd all be travelling from) and it has the gazebo I've been looking for in that price range.

                What is this crazy public beach you are talking about? Where have you found your information because I am finding it hard to come across any. The beach looks alright didn't notice the lack of sand or length but I will have to look more into this. thanks.

                  I have done a LOT of "google"-ing lately! I've googled Sunscape Casa Del Mar and Dreams La Romana. They are one and the same. Some reviews say they did not like being next to the public beach b/c it was crowded and loud and there were people trying to sell things to them. Others enjoyed it b/c it gave them a chance to talk to locals and get more culture. Apparently the locals go there on their days off to enjoy the beach like every other person would do. From what I've found so far, there's only one other resort near that area, but is also further down the beach. I'm not sure how I feel about being next to a public beach but the appeal of having more cultural exposure in a different country is always nice!

                    Is the public beach right next to the resort or is it around a point? I guess I should google it some more...

                      It's apparently right beside the Dreams beach. There is security but some say it's not very good security, others say the opposite.
