Dreams Palm Beach is a nice resort, but I think an adult only resort would serve your needs better.

Excellence Punta Cana (8 restaurants, no reservations, great beach but with waves)

Secrets Royal Beach (only a couple of a la cartes, with most at Now Larimar)

Iberostar Grand Bavaro (very nice, but I don't like the reservation system, and it's more expensive)

Catalonia Royal (calm ocean)

Zoetry is not adult only, but it's small and quiet

My parents stayed at Punta Cana Princess and hated it.

As always....my suggestion is Catalonia Royal Bavaro. Close to airport, adult only but you can access the sister resort if you want to expnd your restaurant selections or go to an evening show, excellent staff, quiet beach...which is beautiful with lots of shade/sun options, no reservations at dinner, large rooms (My favorite are the deluxe or private swimming pool suites) and so much more. We are leaving in less than 2 weeks for our second trip this year.

If your looking for quiet, subdued and relaxing as well as great food and excellent service then the Iberostar grand Bavaro is your best bet. Theres a reason its rated #1 on TA

we walked the beach up and down from our resort and ours was by far the least crowded, and nicest property. Even compared to the sister properties. If you book the IB Grande you can use the other 3 sister properties, but we just checked them out, didn't want to hang out there, liked ours better.
