Jewel Palm Beach in Punta Cana has it all, gourmet food, bartenders putting on cocktail shows, spacious rooms, and a stunning beach.

Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana

Jewel Palm Beach Punta Cana

After spending only a few hours at Jewel Palm Beach Punta Cana (formally Dreams Palm Beach), a family-friendly all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic, it is easy to see why it’s named Dreams. Being greeted with champagne and wine and dining at 5 bars and 7 restaurants is a dream.

The World Cafe Buffet at Dreams Palm BeachFantastic Food

24-Hour Room Service

Room service is available all the time. Plus, they keep your in-room fridge stocked with soft drinks, juice, bottled water, and beer.

Coral Market Buffet

The World Cafe buffet alone is a foodie’s dream come true with island after island of gourmet cuisines from around the world. Plus, you can customize your own pasta and pizza here. I made up my own pasta and it was incredible!

My friend Pattie from Living La Vida Loca made her own pizza which she also deemed incredible. People that love food will also love the cheese fries at Perfect Grill down on the beach.

Killer Cocktails

Cocktail enthusiasts will be wowed by Clemente the bartender in the lobby bar.  He pulls out all the tricks as he creates his signature drink the Dominican Beach.

Pristine Property

But the dreams extend way beyond food and drink. The property is beautiful with lush vegetation everywhere and nice touches like porch swings. They even have a flamingo pond!

There are two large pools and a hot tub for everyone to enjoy. Their 500 rooms are spacious and if you score a honeymoon suite there’s a hammock on the deck. When selecting a room try to get a beach view. Their beach is stunning with loads of mature palm trees.

Exclusive Options

A nice option when staying here is upgrading to Preferred. They have Preferred options for families or adults only, which differs from Dreams Onyx where it is only for adults. Here at Dreams Palm Beach families that have an exclusive lounge with gaming tables and a private swimming pool. Preferred guests also get service down on the beach.

Pattie and I spent some time at the spa and it was absolutely wonderful. We each got a reflexology treatment outside in our private cabana. They have a nice hydrotherapy circuit set up outside too with sauna, steam rooms, whirlpool, hydro-massage, spa showers & ice plunge pool. Hydrotherapy is included with all treatments.

This spa has treatments for kids and teens as well.

Dreams Flora Punta Cana has 620 guest rooms and suites with a wide assortment of layouts and amenities. If possible get a honeymoon suite aka a Preferred Club Master Two-Bedroom Suite Tropical or Partial Ocean View. All the suites have patios overlooking the beach. These suites are huge.

They do have some swim-out rooms that open up directly to a pool. I prefer rooms like this, so thought it was worth mentioning.

Get Travel Insurance

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that can go wrong on any trip. Be prepared for the worst with travel insurance. We use Travelex or Safety Wing (often cheaper).

Book Flights

I use Skyscanner to find flights. I use it so much, I wrote an entire guide to finding cheap flights with Skyscanner!

Book a Place to Stay

I recommend using or for most hotel bookings. I prefer to book directly with Marriott when I stay there because of their excellent military discount.

If you prefer staying in a vacation rental instead, I recommend VRBO.

Rent Clothes

Rent clothes for your trip with Travel Style Expert for only $50 a month! The first 30 days are free!

Choose Activities and Tours

To find great activities in any area I use Get Your Guide and Viator. If we are visiting a city with lots of popular attractions I always check CityPass and GoCard to see if they have discount cards available. Groupon also tends to have a lot of local travel deals.

When I want to book a full-on multi-day tour I use TourRadar. They’ve got fantastic weekly deals. If I am going somewhere in Mexico or the Caribbean I use Apple Vacations.

Rent a Car or Take a Lyft

More often than not Lyft is cheaper than Uber. Use my Lyft link for an $18 credit! For a car rental in any country, I recommend Hertz or Discover Cars.

Save Money on Gas

Upside, a free app gets you cash back on gas! Use promo code RV2Q2 to get an extra 15¢/gal bonus on your first purchase.

Get a Visa

I use iVisa to get all of my Visas.
