This fine Dreams has a fabulous new look after its 2013 renovation—most notably in its new room category, 75 Premium Deluxe rooms with luxurious decor and the new Dreams Pevonia Spa. These rooms, which are found on all three floors, have luxury bedding, marble flooring, and outstanding bathrooms with double rain showers. The spa interior is eye-blinking—faux white doves hang from the ceiling. There is an elaborate hydrotherapy area, a Vichy cabin, and 30 restorative treatments offered. Family- and American-friendly—the resort is perched on a gorgeous stretch of beach with white-sugar sand. The atmosphere is fun, active, and like the other Dreams resorts, there are no wristbands and no reservations for à la carte restaurants. Supervised activities (the Explorers Club) allow the many kids to have fun, and beepers to keep you in touch, especially with the teenagers. Pay extra for the Preferred Club; it has an appealing camaraderie among guests that is often missing at AIs.
