    Go to Secrets resorts

    The property was very nice, they do a great job keeping everything clean and the pools/beach/water park were great. This was my fourth trip to Punta Cana, we just love the vibe and we only stay at all inclusives. We had an issue with our toilet, water pressure was bad so it clogged every day. They fixed it each time but not convenient for us. Our butler was helpful but he was shady. He asked us to mention him in a post and take a picture using his hotspot. This particular resort had awful drinks and breakfast/lunch options. The dinners were good. When you stay for a whole week, the food and drinks should be decent but not here. The other three resorts I stayed at were all excellente in that department. Tip: the other three were all Secrets branded, this was our first and last Dreams resort.

    Amazing Trip to Dreams Macao !

    This 5 stars resort was simply perfect, even though they had some damages from Fiona just before we got there, it was clean and relaxing ! The service from Heriberto, our Butler, was simply awesome ! Touchbased with us everyday, sending us the SunDial, asking if we needed anything, arranged all of our SPA services and went above and beyond (taking upon his own time to go into town to get us DOP smaller bills / exchange), simply amazing ! Willy, the Preferred Pool "guy" was so attentive to our every needs and Cary our UVC Representative was so attentionate and helped us greatly during our stay. What an amaing team !

    Entertainment at Dreams Macao

    Fabulous stay at dreams Macao beach Punta Cana, made perfect by the entertainment team in particular Jhony Bravo, Michael Jordan,Twentynine, cocodrilo, beyonce, jorkin, la negra, and ramon feliz who always went above and beyond to make us laugh, smile and feel safe. They work so hard all day for all the guests and the hotel would not be the same without the entertainment team. Thank you !!

    The resort is beautiful, everything is new. We stayed privileged and Domingo was out butler. He was amazing. He helped with anything we needed and brought us coffees to our room every morning. Cocos, the coffee/ pastry shop was one of the best parts, open 24/7. The food was amazing, even ate the chicken and salads which I normally don’t when travelling to the DR. Two of the water slides were actually pretty fast and fun. The lazy river is nice as well. When sitting at the adult only pool they come around to ask if you want drinks, but just not quite frequent enough. As there is no swim up bar, if you wanted more frequent drinks you had to go to the other pool or the closest bar which was about a 45 second walk. Very knit picky, things but would have been nice to have. The beach wasn’t white sand and when entering the water there are large boulders in the sand but sticking out enough that you need to be careful not to slip. As there were several hurricanes around the area the waves were massive and thus we couldn’t swim in the ocean. But otherwise everything was good. The room was nice and always kept well stocked. The staff is also very nice and helpful with any requests. I would absolutely recommend going the this resort as it is beautiful, new, great food, and the staff is amazing.

    Trendy Resort with the nicest workers

    Just got back from Dreams Macao with a group of 9. We had the best time! The resort is new and very modern. The food was what you'd expect at a resort, mediocre. The workers all made our trip be an excellent experience. Everyone was so nice and went above and beyond for us. Wendy from the pool bar, Michael Jordan from the activities, and Victoria from the preferred cub were our absolute favorites.
