Myself and partner visited Dreams in March 2010 and fell in love with the resort so were back in August for a couple of weeks.
If got a few questions and it would be great if some of you guys out there could give me so more info!
Firstly, we have decided to go preferred club, i've read a few articles that claim it's not worth upgrading, what does everyone think? Myself and partner aren't the kind that will be doing star jumps in the sea or running around with the chicken hat on ;) were more the reserved type and like a nice lil quiet spot. However we found the beach and infinity pools more than satisfying, in fact they were just about perfect! Are the extra amenities in PC worth it, what sort of extra things do you get?
When we booked we booked via bluebay travel who apparently represents as the company who mainly deal with dreams and the popular companies thomson, thomas cook etc. The lady that booked up for us claimed to know the management well and has told us we 'should' be in block 5, top floor with a sea view. Has anyone stayed in this block/room before?
Next, i think i know where the PC beach section is, is it right next to the pier near the rocks? Where theres only a tiny section of sand leading to the sea? Not that I mind this as im dying to try snorkelling out, bottled last year but will not miss out this time... are the rocks, coral and pier best to go snorkelling? Im a novice and although really want to see all the sea life, whats the chances of getting eaten alive by a shark, barracuda or stung by a ray?? Again, more info would be greatly appreciated!!!
Erm, what else....oh yeah, fishing! Can you hire rods and bait off the hotel and fish off the end of the pier? I know you can do days/half days on the beach for around $100 based on what you actually want to do. But can you just do it off the pier for free?
And last but not least, the food. Myself and my partner where fine with the food, i know some people complainig till there blue in the face about the food here but i personally think it was great, especially for the Dominican Republic. However my partners mum and grandmother are meeting us out there half way through the first week and although i can remember what was on offer i don't suppose anyone out there has got pics of menus or can remember the options at the different restaurants?
Thanks for reading guys and thanks in advance to those with more info!!
