Iberostar or dreams cannot decide please help

Struggling to decide between these 2 properties. We like good beachfront with shade, quality but casual atmosphere, nice quiet areas for a drink instead of noisy entertainment areas. Good food standards .......which hotel of the two would you choose and why?

Thanks in advance

We went through this same path of trying to figure things out.

We have booked Dreams Nov 29-Dec13 based on any number of reviews and comments on TA. ......

Based only on feedback and comments:

-Better Beach

-Snorkeling at the beach

-Walking to Bayahibe

-More restaurant options on the grounds

We are staying in the Preferred Club as well and that had some features we liked, such as the preferred club pool and bar which is exclusive and should provide a great atmosphere.

Let us know if our schedule meet or overlap, it is great meeting new people especially those communicating on TA.

Hope this helps, happy travels.

I know the iberostar beachfront is great, they have a bar right next to the water , but ive heard more good things about dreams. Like others mention, dreams has a small active local village outside of the resort, in case you want a change from repetitive resort life. Iberostar does not offer this.

the town of bayahibe is just a short cab ride. $20 from iberostar, or just take the bus couple of dollars. that shouldn't factor in as a deal breaker unless of coarse you plan to go to town every day. the town of dominicus is just a short walk from the iberostar. good luck with your choice. seems a great time can be had at both places. i am going to the iberostar on nov 29th for the 4th time. for me its great. the savings in money is even greater. the bonus the service is great. nothing lacking at all. best of luck in your travels its great we have these options.

Loved, loved, loved, DLR. No wristbands, no reservations, great restaurants.

Good snorkeling (for the DR). Pleasant casino. Would return in a heartbeat.
