Family Friendliness at Dreams Palm Beach

Dreams Palm Beach has a reputation for being family friendly. This is because they offer what is known as an Explorer’s Club. The Explorer’s Club is kind of like an all-inclusive day care. It is open from nine in the morning until ten at night and available for children ages three to twelve.

Do you have parent-child separation anxiety? Rest assured that your children are safe here. The entire staff if certified in CPR and First Aid by the American Red Cross. To go one step further, they will provide you with a pager that will alert you if there are any problems. This means that you and your significant other can enjoy some alone time together before the big day without worrying.

While you are away your children will engage in sporting activities, arts, crafts, and other social activities that will keep them entertained and help them make friends with other children at the resort. This children’s club is a blast. Some reviewers have even stated that their children preferred to be at the Explorer’s Club rather than with their families!

If your children are older (thirteen to seventeen) they too can have lots of fun at the resort! Dreams Palm Beach offers a Core Zone Teens Club that it professionally supervised to ensure your teens safety. Their activities range from nightly social activities to water sports and games such as basketball, video games, and Euro-bungee!


Amenities at Dreams

Another great thing about Dreams Palm Beach is the wonderful list of amenities that they provide to their guests. Their amenities include pools, a fitness center, multiple restaurants, room service, a bar and lounge, free parking, free breakfast, spa, and free high speed internet! They also have a casino, a hot tub, and a tennis court (for those more athletically inclined). They also offer a number of entertaining excursions to local wonders such as the Isla Saona and Isla Catalina. If you are interested, there are a number of positive reviews on the amenities that are offered at the resort.


DPB’s Wedding Location Possibilities

Now that we have told you about the amazing amenities and family friendly atmosphere, we’re going to tell you about the wedding location possibilities here at Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana!

Three Beach Locations

There are three beach locations for your wedding: The Beach Front Gazebo, and two spots by the sea shore.

  • The beachfront gazebo is absolutely gorgeous and functional! Not only are you by the sea, surrounded by bone white sand and salty air, but you are also partially covered from the sun. This may work in your favor when it comes to photographs (think squinting at the camera). Feel free to check out their website if you are interested in this location.
  • The other two locations are on the sea shore and they are both picturesque. They both have palm trees that tower over the soft white sand, open skies, and the deep blue ocean as a back drop.
  • We always recommend using the Sea Side Grill area if it’s available. It is fantastic for pictures because it is separated from the main area, which means there are not so many tourists around. 


Garden Gazebo Wedding

This location is a lovely option if you enjoy bright green colors and the feel of nature. The Garden Gazebo is gorgeous. I mean absolutely gorgeous. The location is large enough that it will cover both you, your fiancé, and a maximum of eighty guests. This may sound like a small wedding. However, destination weddings rarely have over this amount of guests. We also believe that the smaller capacity means a more intimate feeling will be available to you on your big day.


Reception Possibilities

There are at least four reception possibilities for you to choose from. These include the pool island, the pool-side, the beach, and an indoor location.


Pool Island

The pool island is a fun option and is one of our favorite locations for reception photographs. It holds a maximum of sixty guests. If you choose this option, you will have several tables and chairs neatly arranged on the pool island right next to the water. The pool itself is surrounded by greenery and white stone pavement.


Pool Side

The pool side beach front option is a lot of fun, especially at night. It too holds a maximum of sixty guests. The blue skies, numerous palm trees, canopies, and pool lights create a tropical island feel that is both exotic and romantic.



The beach location is stunning. The white sand, blue sky, and rippling tides create a soothing atmosphere. Also imagine how romantic a reception held at sunset or twilight would be. On top of being romantic, it is also functional. It is set up for a large reception and holds a maximum of three hundred guests.



There are a couple indoor locations for your reception. These include the banquet rooms and the ballroom. For a reception, the banquet room is willing to hold a maximum of forty guests. The ballroom is willing to hold a maximum of two hundred and fifty. An indoor reception is ideal in case of bad weather; otherwise, we recommend and an outdoor experience. After all, one has a destination wedding for a change of scenery. There are plenty of ballrooms around the world, but there is only one Punta Cana shore.
