Is Dreams worth the cost?

Recommended Posts

I'm glad I asked for advice! Thanks everyone!! We are gonna do Dreams, but look into a cheaper option for friends that can't afford it.  I figured those who stay there will have a blast and I'm so excited to start planning!!!!  I do think it's a good price for what you get, just more expensive than some of the other places I have stayed.  Yay Cabo!!

mindy, they are totally different resorts in entirely different parts of mexico.  yes they are under the dreams chain but all the resort do differ in price, management, amenities (like some have a swimmable beach, others do not...some have been more recently renovated, others not...). 

 

when you are comparing prices, it is critical to compare like for like.  meaning same resort, same room category, same dates of travel, same airfare if that is what is quoted as well. 

 

to compare rates from 2 different resorts, in 2 different cities, travelling at 2 different times is not that helpful.

 

i understand your point about dreams being affordable but when you do not make it clear that the rates that you are quoting are for an entirely different resort than what the original poster is asking for it can cause confusion....and i think that is why she was asking where you booked your rates since they are like $150 less than what dreams LOS CABOS is offering.

Yes, Yes, and Yes :)

 

I would not say they are 2 totally different resorts...they are both DREAMS, so experience, service, etc. should be somewhat consistent.

I *DID* make it clear the prices were for DRC. Never mind.

 

Sorry you did not interpret my post correctly. 

 

My error in judgment for posting I guess, which I don't do very often.  I'll stick to opinions about dresses from here on out.

Rebecca,

Just wanted to add one thing - we also looked into this option of having guests stay at another location, then coming over to Dreams for the wedding...the policy at DRC (note I did not say DLC!) was approximately $100 for a 'day pass' - I think it was around $50 for half a day.  POINT IS:  be sure to ask what the cost of the day pass is if you plan on having your guests join you.  I think most all-inclusives would charge guests who are not staying at the resort, unless they have the 'armband' system.  Just wanted to mention it to you so you don't have any suprises!  Enjoy planning your wedding!!

Thanks Mindy.  Ya after getting the information abt the expensive day passes we decided that we are going to go for a cheaper option so our friends don't all hate us.  Dreams sounds awesome, I just hate asking my friends to pay >$300 per couple per night.  Viva Cabo! :)

    • 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
