MY ADVENTURES

Dreams Onyx Resort Punta CanaI went here for my daughter’s Destination Wedding.  It was wonderful! 

Located in Uvero Alto, Punta Cana, Dreams Onyx Resort & Spa is set on a remote, palm-studded beach. The family section offers 320 suites, including two room categories offering plenty of connecting room options, two bedroom suites perfect for larger families. With limitless gourmet à la carte dining and unlimited top-shelf beverages at eleven dining options and eleven bars you will find everything you're looking for. Plus, with exchange privileges, adults can enjoy complete access to the seven bars, nine restaurants, entertainment, and amenities right next door at Breathless Punta Cana.

Food was overall great.  I did the buffet for breakfast and lunch and they had ample offerings.  French Restaurant-outstanding food! Italian Restaurant-we ate here for the rehearsal dinner and again, would recommend. Ice Cream Shop near lobby-by grandson and mother were here everyday! Burger Bar-the group was here for late night since it was near the Sports Bar.  Beach Grill-this is located next door at Breathless, but you have reciprocity with Breathless if you are an adult at Dreams.

Wedding - Very easy to work with and we even changed/added a few things once we arrived at the resort with no problems. We upgraded to the Divine Wedding Package and then added some extras. Hannah chose the beach for her wedding and also for reception.  We had the wedding at one end of the resort and the reception at the other.  Food for the wedding was better than great.  They have a separate crew do the wedding food, so it is just not taken from the buffet.  Again, it was amazing.  The wedding was at 200pm, then cocktail hour from 300pm-400pm and reception from 400pm-700pm. 

Activities - New Water park has lazy river and slides along with a bar. They have floats for you or you can buy your own.  Kids and adults were loving this.  The main pool is multi leveled and has a small wading pool between the main pool and beach.  The kid’s area is up near the lobby and has a small splash park and play area.  They do activities around the resort. The adults enjoyed the ability to go to Breathless for Casino and evening entertainment.  Our resort also had entertainment, but more family friendly.

We used Bebe Catamarans for a private charter the day after the wedding for our group.  They picked us up at the resort for transfer and we were on the boat for three hours.  We stopped for snorkeling and used the slide at the first stop and then stopped at a sandbar for play and drinking. If you are snorkeling, you have to use a ladder, jump, or slide off the boat. 

Covid testing for the reutrn was easy and went smoothly.  You will need to go the concierge and set it up.  They helped everyone on our phones to fill out the electronic paperwork.  We set an appointment and it took about 15 minutes from start to finish.
