There was too many excursions to choose from. The resort wasn't that big compared to others that I've stayed at. The Casino, was horrible don't waste your money going or your time. One gift shop, extremely poor quality products. The resort was clean, nice, people were friendly but wasn't worth the money we paid. I would recommend saying at another resort in the DR. Try to avoid using AMSTAR, we had our second bad experience using them in the DR and Cancun. AMSTAR is completely unprofessional and rude towards americans. They are not helpful at all, try using another form of transportation. The drive to/from the airport is not 1 hr 15 mins. DO NOT believe that. It's 2 hours each way regardless of traffic.

Well worth it

I highly recommend this resort. I read all the reviews before I booked and I listened by upgrading to the VIP status and I am so glad I did. Extra discounts on all "gift purchases" as well as special service. My Mom and I went to celebrate BIG birthdays and we couldn't think of a single thing we would have changed. Well done Dreams LR!!!!

Beautiful Relaxtion

From the minute we walked in we were greeted with a champagne glass, smiles everywhere, and a "hola" from everyone we passed. I had the garden view room which had a nice little balcony and we were in the first floor which was great, beach access was right in the back.The rooms decor was pretty modern, although my pillows were linty and i did see something that looked like a make up stain... everything else was clean. The infinity pool is beautiful and the swim up bar is great. The beach water is very clear and the sand is white! The steak restaurant is outside and by the water, the food here was good. The "Italian" restaurant food was okay... the presentation beautiful and again great service.. but the food ehh.. the desert was my favorite. The buffet food was also okay.... regular buffet food, breakfast was the best. Got that real Dominican food. A lot of fun activities to participate in through out the day, Zumba, Archery, Swim Competitions, Etc... Family friendly place, and I would say the crowd was around 35-55. Me and my friend 26 years old had to be the youngest in this resort! Also very safe!!! We thought about leaving the resort to go to a nightclub that was recommended to us, and they were strict about letting us go and were informed that the cab driver stays for 2 hours and then takes you back! We didn't end up going as we were too tired. All in all I would recommend this resort for someone looking to relax and get great service!

Good but could be great

First, this place was beautiful! We went during the time hurricane Matthew was stirring up trouble so we were unable to do excursions. I give credit to the resort for cancelling the paid excursions and thinking more about the safety of guests than the money they were losing. They also had to close some beaches for a while due to the weather but they were very active getting people involved in alternate activities which was nice. I gave the service a 3 because most employees were awesome but a few things weren't great.....the girls running the cashier desk in the casino were the opposite of pleasant! This was unfortunate since it rained a lot while we were there and enjoyed gambling. The other issue was that they invited us to a special breakfast for new guests.....this was not special. This was a 3 hour sales package presentation....we were not happy to put it lightly. That morning the weather was actually just a little cloudy and instead of enjoying the nice weather, we spent our morning with pushy salesmen. I would still recommend this resort but say no to a special breakfast. Also, I know gratuities are included but a few tips go a long way for the extra special treatment:)

What's to Love

Cool towels and sparkling champagne - palate cleansers after the trek from the real world to Beach Heaven.

It's on an eco-friendly beach along a mind-blowing turquoise sea surrounded by a tropical wonderland.

Explorer's club (kids 3-12) that offers everything from sand castle competitions to arts & crafts.

Red Cross certified staff supervise the aforementioned club. A relief, right?

Parents get a pager from the Explorer's club, should they be needed for anything.

Italian-inspired architecture and manicured gardens that reflect a Mediterranean seaside paradise.

The Brazilian restaurant with churrasco-style cuisine and the lobster restaurant on the pier.

Colonially-inspired family-sized suites with classic decor and private balconies or terraces.

Luxury bath amenities sweeten the pot.

Butlers greeting you after excursions with chilled towels and tasty tropical drinks. This rocks.

The stress-squashing spa with palapas for oceanside massages and Jojoba Oil body exfoliations.

Outdoor hydrotherapy whirlpool baths, two saunas and a Vichy shower.


What We'd Change

The resort is pretty big, which makes for a lot of walking, but that way you can work off all the delicious food!


Why You Should Go

Only 40 minutes from two airports. Either way you get here, you can exhale - you're faraway from reality.

Upgrade to the Preferred Club and get upgraded rooms, access to a private lounge, and much more.

Golf at Teeth of the Dog, The Links and Dye Fore designed by architect Pete B. Dye.

The reef that's right off the beach is full of beautiful fish.

You can take a catamaran, sailboat or speedboat (hang on to your hats!) to dreamy Soana Island.

Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon are also a whisper away.

Rent a private pool for four for a day with the Corner Pool Package!

Connecting rooms, rollaway beds and cribs are available. Just ask.

You can try you luck (or lose your money) at blackjack, roulette and slot machines at the onsite casino.

There are tennis courts (with clinics) along with bike rentals. Woot!

Get your feet (and body) wet with boogie boarding, kayaks, snorkeling, and scuba diving (for a fee).

For laid-back chilling, catch some billiards, dance classes, and a giant chess board.

There's an inflatable iceberg on the beach, plus kids love the Euro-bungee and ocean trampoline.
