Breezes Runaway Bay-Rooms?

Recommended Posts

Hi Brides!

 

Anyone ever been to BRB and know how the rooms are? I know the difference between the premium and deluxe is the way they face. Premium=inward toward the gardens, and Deluxe=outward. We want to book either premium or deluxe to be more cost effective. Are the premium rooms really worth the extra $? Also does anyone have a suggestion to request a specific room(s) or area? Thanks!

I'm not convinced that there's a difference in the 2 room levels.

 

We just booked a Deluxe room, and when we got there, we were upgraded to a plunge pool room.

 

The rooms you really want, are the oceanfront plunge pool rooms. Those are in the new room block with great views.

Thanks J2K! Did they just automatically upgrade you for free since they had the availability or did you pay extra? Just curious, and thanks for your help!

Hi Maureen! I have heard as well on other sites like Tripadvisor that the ocean fronts are the best! I guess we are just trying to be more cost effective and save a little on the room and go with the deluxe or premium. It would be nice though if they upgraded us to the nicer rooms if they have the availability. Is that something that is common with Breezes? I have read also on other sites that some people, like J2K stated above, do get upgraded rooms for free. Do you know if this has to be asked for at check in or is it just something that they do automatically? Thanks for the help!

I think our TA asked for us to be upgraded as a special request but we weren't able to get a better room because the resort was so full. We were in room number 1227 and had the most awesome infinity pool/ocean view!! The shower was the best thing about the room. There are 6 shower heads - 4 on one wall and two on the opposite wall - AMAZING! The beds were sorta hard and the pillows were WAY flat but there was more in the dresser drawers so at least you could use multiples. Some things definitely looked a bit unfinished (nobody in our group was in the newer building so I can't comment on those rooms). But we weren't really in our rooms that much so we didn't care. I took pictures of our room and you can check it (and other resort photos) out at the link below. They would have been the first pictures but I think photobucket changed up the order, sorry! Hopefully i'll get my review posted soon. I'll tell you this now though, absolutely without a doubt make sure you ask for Crazy J (Jariel) as your photographer (he lurks the forums here and is THE BEST!)

    • 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!!
