Another vote for Dreams LaRomana it's one of few we will return to multiple times. Preferred club makes it even better.
I'll try to get a trip report posted in the next week or so but we just returned, stayed at Dreams La Romana from 12/23 - 12/30. We had a great stay. Staff is friendly and helpful, food and drink good and plentiful and accommodations great. Like somebody else said, Preferred Club room recommended. As I said, I'll get a more detailed report posted as soon as I can. In the meantime post any specific questions you may have.
Myself and husband are looking to just get away for 7 days nice beach,swim up bar, decent restaurants. Clean room just need to have R and R time alone. Which hotels in this area are good??
Dreams like the others have said. You can also upgrade to adults-only section if you want a pool with no children. Very clean and very nice resort!!!!!
In my opinion the best all inclusive is Catalonia Royal La Romana. It is actually adult only, but has a better location than Dreams. The food and drinks are very good. And actually all restaurants are a la carte, which I like it a lot.
