Thinking of “Doing The Dominican”???

Leave a comment

Are you thinking of a Dominican Getaway?

Its a FUN Destination for sure with many choices for All Kinds of FUN in the SUN!

And remember too there are two sides to the Dominican Republic! The Punta Cana / Bavaro Beach area which is on the Atlantic Side of the Island and then LaRomana which is on the Caribbean Side!

If you are flying into the Punta Cana Airport …here are some of my FAVS listed by closer proximity.

Dreams Palm Beach! only about 30 minutes from the Airport!

Main Pool at Dreams Palm Beach is Awesome

Next in line are Now Larimar and Secrets Royal Beach! Secrets Royal Beach is Adults Only and next door to them is Now Larimar the Family Friendly Resort. And they are about 40 minutes from the airport!

Here is a shot of the Pool at Secrets Royal Beach

Now Larimar is right next door to Secrets

This shows the Beach and Pools at Now Larimar

Beach and Pools at Now Larimar are Breathtaking!

Down the road a bit is Dreams Punta Cana about 50 minutes from the airport and has the largest winding pool in Punta Cana!

The Pool at Dreams Punta Cana runs the length of the resort

Zoetry Agua Punta Cana is about 60 minutes from the Punta Cana Airport and a Magical Place for sure!

The Infinity Pool at Zoetry Agua over looks the magnificient beach and a very calm ocean thanks to the reef that protects it from rough waves!

On the other side a mere 90 minutes from the Punta Cana Airport or 30 minutes if you fly into the LaRomana Airport is Dreams La Romana!

The Infinity Pool at Dreams LaRomana overlooks the Beach and Ocean and the snorkeling here is very good!

I’ve been to each of these resorts and love each of them for various reasons… You can’t go wrong on choosing any of them!

Dreams LaRomana and New Culinary Delights with Chef Pastor

Leave a comment

While I have been at Dreams LaRomana its been my pleasure to meet and get to know The Newest Member of the DREAM TEAM Chef Pastor who is the Executive Chef here! And WOW What a great addition to the DREAM TEAM!

Originally from Spain where he was schooled he has worked in the Caribbean for quite some time and is a genius at creating the most delicious dishes with the most simple of ingredients! His passion for flavor and good food is evident when he starts to describe the dishes as he presents them and tells a bit about what, why and how he made that in itself was a great added experience to dining at Seaside Grill for a few Lunches and Dinners while I was here!

One of his favorite Chefs is the renowned Gordon Ramsey who he admires and enjoys watching on TV when he can…and other of his favorite passions is “FootBall” aka Soccer! He lights up when discussing Soccer Matches! He loves interacting with guests! Often I would see him mingling with guests and sharing his passion of both Culinary and sports!

Meeting Chef Pastor here at Dreams La Romana was a real treat! He has many wonderful things in store for the guests and will be putting his special touches on each of the menus and dining venues at the resort.

Meeting and getting to know Chef Pastor was one of the TREATS of my stay here at Dreams LaRomana! He has many treats in store for the guests here…TASTY TREATS!

It’s always great to come back here because this is were our AMazing AMResorts Adventures began many years ago when the ares RT was named SUNscape Casa del Mar and I used to call it SUNscape Casa del MARvelous! And still there are so many wonderful Friends and family still here!

The Leopard Boys and I were so touched at all of the special Leopardo touches they arranged for us from the arrival with the drink tray covered in leopard to our bedroom decorated in leopard and a leopard birthday cake…it touched our heart…we just love the DREAM TEAM!!!

There was a wonderful surprise B’day party for me on the beach last night with my FAV dinner if CHIVO! We had so much fun and many laughs!

The one “sad” thing is that Leopardo laptop seems to be frozen and won’t start so we are going down now to have him checked by a computer guru! Thank goodness LeoPADo has stepped in and is helping out but LeoPADo and I are learning together how to play nice…so be patient if you donta see as many pics and long post…we will get it together because Sweet Dreams LaRomana MUST be shared. And make sure to check my Facebook and the Dreams LaRomana fan page for more pics too

Hugs!

Hola and Buenos Dias!

So today I saw on the calendar that in 35 days Leopardo Laptop and I will be starting our … AMazing AMResorts Adventure called the Divine Dominican Tour! Where DREAMS come TRUE! Secrets will be REVEALED and Leopardo Laptop and I will be Living Life with ART at Zoetry!

We are beyond excited to be going back to visit all of our extended Familia in the Dominican Republic!

We are going to have our fist stop at Dreams Palm Beach! LOVE IT THERE! And its only 20 minutes from the airport! The Layout is so compact and beautiful! A DREAM COME TRUE 4 SURE!

Then we will head further down the road to Dreams Punta Cana…ah…such SWEET DREAMS always come true there! The pool is a fabulous feature that runs the whole length of the resort from the lobby all the way down to the BEACH! And there is always something FUN going on there!

Next on the Divine Dominican Tour will be Zoetry Agua Punta Cana! Oh Leopardo and I just cannot wait to get back there! Our last visit was so wonderful and so much has happened since then we can’t wait to experience it… Zoetry truly is where LIFE, ART and ZEN meet to make MAGIC! And Zoetry Agua has so much MAGIC, from the AMazing Views all about the resort, to the SUNrises and the SUNsets, the Beautiful Beach…and lets not forget the staff and their devotion to the guests happiness!

From there we head over to Dreams LaRomana! Its where Leopardo and I first fell in LOVE with AMResorts and what they stand for…that is… AMazing Vacations and SO MUCH MORE!!! Dreams La Romana truly does have a special place in our hearts along with its DREAM TEAM that always ROCKS our WORLD! Snorkeling from the beach is just one of the many things that keeps us going back time and again to Dreams LaRomana!

Our last stop…is going to be Secrets Sanctuary Cap Cana! We believe this to truly be a JEWEL of the AMresort Brands! The Architecture alone is spectacular! The Variety of rooms offered are MANY and the Secrets Staff and Management there truly are AMazing making guests stay a SWEET SECRET they enjoy sharing!

While Leopardo and I are visiting each of the resorts we will be doing LIVE FROM…with Blogging, Tweeting and posting on Facebook to share the SWEET DREAMS AND SECRETS and ZEN Moments of ZOETRY with all of you!

We hope that you will be joining us! And while we are there we will be happy to take pictures or try to get answeres for any questions you may have… Because Leopardo Laptop and I are all about “Spreading the LOVE, Sharing the DREAMS, Revealing the SECRETS and Living life with ART as in ZOETRY and being in the MOMENT of NOW”!

Come DREAM with me…some Divine Dominican DREAMS!

Good thing I have mastered the important things like cervaza and bano! Beer and Bathroom, they seem to go hand in hand…LOL!

Anyhoo…

I was thinking about other BLOGS today and thought I would share some fun blogs about the places Leopardo and I will be visiting in April!

You’ve heard the song “Soar like an EAGLE”…Speaking of Eagles…some were spotted at Dreams Palm Beach last summer! The Philiadelphia Eagles that is!

You just never know who you might meet up with there…

Recently Danny Bonaduce of TV fame and his new wife spent their honeymoon enjoying SWEET DREAMS at Dreams Palm Beach!

Dreams Palm Beach has so much to offer! Great Location and Layout and only 20 minutes from the Punta Cana Airport! Leopardo and I love it and think you will too!

Down the road a bit from Dreams Palm Beach lies Dreams Punta Cana and there is always something fun going on there!

For Kids and Grown ups alike…so make sure to always check your SUNdial Newsletter so you don’t miss out on a thing! If you are bringing little ones to Dreams Punta Cana they will LOVE the “Explorers Club”…it truly is AMazing! Check out what the “DAYDREAMS” Blog said it about it just this past summer!

http://dreamsresortsblog.com/2010/08/13/a-day-in-the-life-of-the-explorer%e2%80%99s-club-at-dreams-punta-cana/

The Pirate Ship is always a big hit! And the Explorers Club Staff is GREAT!

At Dreams Punta Cana and all DREAMS Resorts they sure do know how to celebrate the holiday! Heres a bit about how they celebrated the 4th of July last year!

http://dreamsresortsblog.com/2010/03/09/inside-look-independence-day-at-dreams-punta-cana/

They really do celebrate each and every holiday with FUN and know how to Party ON! Dreams Punta Cana is about 50 minutes from the Punta Cana Airport and so much fun you won’t want to leave! We love it there and can’t wait to get back!

Over on the other side of Punta Cana a mere 90 minute ride from the Punta Cana Airport is Dreams LaRomana!

Leopardo and I love Dreams LaRomana along with all of the other Dreams… And it has a very special place in our heart because it was the veryy first AMResorts property that we visited all those years ago when it was SUNscape Casa Del Mar!

Here is a FUN blog post about some of the Entertainment you will see there!

http://dreamsresortsblog.com/2009/12/31/it%e2%80%99s-all-about-the-entertainment/

And another fun blog post about some of the FUN things that you will find in and around the LaRomana area!

http://dreamsresortsblog.com/2009/10/21/all-about-la-romana/

LaRomana is a different experience than Punta Cana and we love being able to visit all of the DREAMS and find each one speaks to our hearts! The one thing that stands out for leopardo and myself at EACH one of them is their STAFF. They really do everything they can to make DREAMS COME TRUE!

Well those are the 3 DREAMS that we will be visiting and we hope that you have enjoyed learning a little bit about each of them!

We will be back later to fill you in on some Blog posts about Zoetry Agua and Secrets Sanctuary Cap Cana!

Leopardo and I love the anticipation of Count Down…and hope you do to!
