    Dreams Macao Beach Punta Cana

    Where do I even start? We were a family of 6. My daughter S.I.L. 2 granddaughters ages 2yo and 4yo my husband and I. Getting ready to leave the resort in a few minutes and thought I would leave a review. AMAZING RESORT AND TIME!! IT'S A 10+ THE FOOD was very good ate at El Patio ( Mexican), Portofino( Italian) Bordeaux (French) and Seaside Grill along with the Buffet for breakfast. We were preferred and were seated in the preferred at the buffet with good AC in that room. They aren't big on Ac just a fyi. The Caribbean as a whole isn't as used to AC like us Americans it seems. We had a 30 minute rain on the 1st day otherwise picture perfect. The resort is beautiful grounds are well kept but the absolute highlight were the ENTERTAINMENT TEAM! They made my granddaughters week. They knew my grands by name Ava and Aria. They danced the week away the nightly shows were AMAZING! This team works so well together and how everyone engaged with the guests! To name just a few... Ninja( Jose) Baby Face, Mosquito, Beyonce, Lindura, Samuel, Ariel, Michael Jordan, Justin Bieber, Francesca, Mila to name a few. These people work their behinds off from early in the day poolside or upstairs in the lobby to their nightly shows. We saw a Magic Show, Fire Show/ Beach Party, Rock and Roll Show, and a Circus Show. All great! We have been to an A.I. in Mexico and this was no comparison. We had turn down service in our room every night. Which was so calming and peaceful. I arranged with our butler. HARLEM.. Yes we had a butler to have morning cream/ milk sent to the room at 7am . Not just the cream came every day but a full continental breakfast! Coffee, tea, cream sugars, and a basket of pastries! Enjoyed them every morning! Thank you Harlem! Also I asked Harlem about a bloody Mary mix to the room... Apparently they don't have bottles like in the US when you order it's made by hand. I think Harlem actually went off property and brought a box of Clamato and tomato juice as I like to drink that 1st thing in the morning with my coffee. It wasn't the mix but it was ACTUALLY REALLY REALLY GOOD! THANK U for the extra effort Harlem! We had a slight issue with AC when we came in... again American used to the cold ac. Maintenence up to the room in a jiffy. Room was perfectly chilled after. Also as a heads up the phones don't use the hand set. To make a call hit the speaker button on the phone. They should leave a card explaining that as I heard numerous guests not knowing. This would be an easy fix ands keep people from having to contact someone to explain how the phones work. The Beach was beautiful wavy but beautiful. Being from Fl. we go to the beach to jump in the waves not swim. Pools are for swimming. They have gorgeous pools too. Our pool attendant RIGOBERTO at the preferred family pool took care of our every need checking on us all day. On the 1st day we asked to have the same chairs and he faithfully took care of all of us. RIGO... YOU WILL MAKE A WONDERFUL BUTLER! ( HE'S IN TRAINING) I WOULD RETURN IN A HEART BEAT!

    Great First AI Experience

    This was our family’s first AI experience so nothing to compare with. All in all, we had a great time. The staff was great. Our butler, Domingo was great in helping with any issues that came up. We had a few minor issues, ie one of the sinks were clogged, the shower leaked a lot and the swim out pool was quite dirty when we arrived. Domingo did send someone right away to clean up the swim out for us. Unfortunately there didn’t seem to be a fix for the leaking shower. We enjoyed the French restaurant. Really good food and service. We did not like Portifino at all. Teppanyaki experience was great. The buffet had some good options. Great mocktails as well. The beach was good but the waves were too intense for my family. Quick walk from resort.

    Great overall experience

    It was our first time visiting Dreams Macao and it was a wonderful experience. I had read few negative comments but was surprised by them. The staff was super nice , especially room service, entertainment team , staff at the restaurants especially Maria (in the world cafe), misleada from gaming zone , and last but not the least our concierge CARLOS. He was amazing with his customer service. He made sure our stay was comfortable and took care of all our dietary restrictions. Beach was just perfect, so were the pools. The only thing that I would mention is that pool should be open throughout the day.otherwise overall great experience . It’s a great resort if you have young kids.will definitely go back
