We stayed at Dreams along with a group of about 100 people for a business reward trip. And I really really really wanted to go and be like "I don't know what they are talking about in the other reviews!" But I have stayed at about 8 All-Inclusives and this was the most disappointing. The resort is beautiful, pretty clean...

As part of the UVC club, its the first time ever going to a resort and have to do everything by myself! When we arrive at the resort no one was there to greet us. We check in, the concierge give us the key for our room and we had to find our way to our room. After a coupe...

Just returned from a week in Panama. Although the resort has a few minor details to work out we had a wonderful experience. Extremely impressed with our room, the view and how clean our room as well as the resort was. Service at pool bar was fantastic! I have stayed at many all inclusive resorts and the staff truly demonstrated...

The resort is very nice. The food is not the best but acceptable. They need to address the pool bed problem. In order to get a place in the shade by the pool or even just to get an available seat you neeed to reserve your seats at about 7am. By 8:30 every single chair has something on it. They...

When we got to the resort the first thing they did was take us up to the "Preferred" room where they proceeded to try to pressure us for two hours into booking a "presentation" for what they assured us wasn't a "Time Share" but a pile of crap by any other name smells the same. They didn't seem to care...

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The housekeeping was excellent. We enjoyed the pools and the floats for the pool. We enjoyed champagne and orange juice every morning. Nice vacation overall. Jeff and Karen

Prior to leaving, we read comments on Trip Advisor that had us arriving at Dreams Playa Bonita with low expectations. I honestly have to give this place a good review. Perhaps I have not done a lot of luxury traveling but I know a good resort when I see it. The grounds were beautiful, the drinks were enjoyable (specifically asked...

We decided to try Playas Bonita for our hol. this year. We loved it and think some people are from another planet who have given it bad reports, really don't know what they expect, Guess some of them wouldn't be satisfied if they paid £10k a week. Everywhere was clean, food good, range of drinks available amazing. Staff very courteous...
