We're planning a trip late Dec through Jan. 1. Having trouble deciding between the two. The prices are similar. Three adults, two teens. Dreams seems fairly secluded, will that be a big deal as far as walking to a restaurant/ bar/shopping? Also, is it not as exciting an ocean view without the city around? I have read reviews of the beach at velas, and they are not complimentary. Can anyone can shed light on the which they prefer as far as location, food, rooms and service? I would appreciate it very much!
