    Wedding at Macao

    Visit was for a wedding and we spent extra days before and after. 30 minutes from airport was easy transportation private transfer in a SUV with Juan from Transkeur Company round trip reliable and affordable. Check in was lobby welcome then cart ride to the preferred lounge for a relaxed check in. The preferred level is up to you when booking a room but we would highly recommend it as everything is easier and access to select dining and a pool that is adult only and quiet is worth it. Butler Jansel was amazing from day one and made our stay even better. Every day had different activities and events and food choices. Some prior reviews had stated problems with the quality of the food, and also that most of the staff did not speak English or help them during their stay . We speak some very basic Spanish, but had absolutely no issues communicating with any of the staff during our stay there when describing in English what we needed. The concierge ,bartenders, and staff at the preferred pool always took great care of us. This is a beautiful low census resort and I would highly recommend for both adults and adults with family as there are so many sections of the resort to divide adults and family with children as needed at the waterpark and the facilities for the adults only as previously described. Thank you all for making our stay wonderful.

    Couldn’t have imagine a better vacation

    Absolutely outstanding service from the housekeeping team during our stay! Kerlin and Fatima served the most amazing drinks to me and my children by the water park, making every moment special and refreshing. Maria from Coco Cafe aKeats remembers the kids favorite treats! I couldn’t have asked for someone better than, Luis Murray, ensured we had a lovely experience, attending to every detail with great care. He always seemed to know what we wanted before we knew. The entire team went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Highly recommended!

    Unforgettable place!!

    Wow, this hotel was an incredible experience. We came as a family of 4 and stayed for 2 weeks. Staff: As we had stayed as a part of the preferred club we had our own personal butler domingo, he was excellent the whole stay and always did his best to make sure we had everything we needed and assist us in what we needed. By finding us around the pool most days to check in personally and booking the restaurant’s we wished to visit for us. Can not say anything better about him! We stayed around the adults only preferred pool and the guy in charge of that pool 'J' was like nothing id seen before. Always asking guests if they needed anything and even moved our umbrellas for us whenever the sun was changing position throughout the day, he was so attentive and never failed to make you laugh and smile. You could tell he was a hard worker and we very much appreciated him. In this resort they have their own cafe called 'coco cafe', i visited daily and one worker who stood above the rest was Maria. She always greeted me with a smile and made it a lovely experience going to get what i wanted! Grounds: The grounds are beautiful and well kept making lovely pictures, espicially the beach which you could not fault espicially at sunset. Food: I personally enjoyed pretty much all meals here, they have 6 speciality restaurants which were all really good with my standouts being the himitsu (asian), portofino (italian) and bordeax (french). I found the main buffet restaurant to be quite packed but as if you are in the preferred club you get your own space which is air conditioned which was quite nice. They also provided food around the pool for preffered members which was good, however on a few occasions it took us an hour and a half to recieve our food which was frustrating but was always good tasting. Finally they had a mexican food truck which was a lovely addition. Cons: The only issue i had was the cocktails, they was all a slush mixture and this left them ended up being all icy and not very alcoholic which is a shame as its one of the things i was most looking forward too. Overall i really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely visit again, very much recommend!!

    Dreams Macao Beach Punta Cana made our paradise dreams come true!

    My partner and I went to Dreams Macao to celebrate our friends wedding. Overall for the wedding experience was amazing and made the wedding so much fun and very memorable! As a couples point of view with no kids, it was paradise! We found a handful of amazing staff from different locations/teams that made our stay extra special. We had our people at the beach, our people at the pool, our connections when we were wondering around, etc, For awesome drinks we had Willy Wonka and Yolanda that always made awesome drinks for us and stayed consistent with it. Jhony Bravo was in the entertainment team that always knew what fun activities to do and made sure you were enjoying yourself. J. Aventura was our guy at the pool and was excellent service when you were at the pool. Overall, Dreams Macao Beach did an excellent job at keeping our vacation very special. The kids in the group had the time of their lives and we keep this place in our hearts. We hope to come back and see our favorite people that made our stay extra special and memorable. Thank you Dreams Macao and thank you for having these fabulous people in your resort! They were the ones that put the cherries on top of our experience!

    Resort and butler service etc.

    We were there for a family wedding. The resort was very nice. It is a smaller resort, which makes it very easy to get around. It is very pretty. The people that work there are all very nice and extremely hard working. There are a few people I need to mention. We stayed as preferred guests, which provides us with Butler service, and access to certain designated areas around the resort. The first person I would like to mention is J at the preferred adult pool. He was an absolute pleasure to see every morning, providing you with anything you might need at the pool, and always with a laugh and a smile. I looked forward to to kidding with him every day. The Butlers. When we arrived, we were greeted by Omar, our first Butler. What an exceptional young man. He said we were not his guests, we were his family. He definitely did treat us that way. He would be sure to find us every morning to see if we needed anything and how our day was going. He was unbelievably warm and welcoming. He was the butler for 2 of the 3 of my adult children who felt the same way I do. Definitely has a bright future in whatever he chooses to do. Then the last two days of our trip, because Omar had his scheduled days off, he introduced us to Domingo, who he said would be there for us the rest of the trip. Another incredible person. Very friendly and attentive. He was also sure to see us every day, and see if we needed anything and handle anything for us, big or small. He even texted the day after we got home to see how our flight was. Incredible service. I can’t say enough about how these gentlemen treated us, and the quality people they are. We look forward to returning in the future and seeing them again.
