Family All Incusive

Hello,

My wife and I have been to PC twice (both times we stayed at Excellence and loved it).

We are planning on bringing our 3 boys this fall (ages 8, 11, and 13) and would love some suggestions/feedback. Ideally, we'd like what Excellence provides in an adult only plus fun for the boys.

A big deal breaker is the room. We want true separation from the kids so definitely not sharing a bedroom/bathroom or really even a room with two bedrooms...basically I'm saying we want to lock them out at time :) !

Currently, we are looking at Dreams and Hard Rock although we are not sure if the family suite at Hard Rock will satisfy the previous paragraph...

Any thoughts/experience would be appreciated and I am happy to answer questions to fill in any gaps.

Thanks!

without getting too much into the resort, I know what you mean about shutting the kids out. We got two connecting rooms and the price and selection is much better than a suite.

Melia and Dreams Palm Beach offer great kids programs.

Various sections of the Bahia resorts would work also but the complex is huge.

I would venture to say that the Nickelodeon would interest the kids greatly but would force you to decide if you need the luxury or want the kids to have a blast!

Memories splash is another to check out

Thank you. Nickelodeon really isn't an option. With 3 boys, the oldest soon to be 13, and the soon to be 8 year old thinking he's 13, they have already outgrown wanting to go there...fortunately!

We have been to both Dreams Punta Cana and Dreams La Romana with our family of five. I would recommend them both, but we actually preferred Dreams Punta Cana between the two.This was our favorite family vacation so far!

Both Of these Dreams have the family deluxe rooms which is what you want ( a room with a king sized bed connected to a room with 2 double beds, both rooms with their own bathroom and the door connecting the two rooms closes and locks). Dreams Palm Beach does not have this room category.We upgraded to preferred club at both resorts, and thought it was worth it. We really liked the Core Zone area at Dreams PC for our pre-teen/ young teen. The staff here are absolutely fantastic, and the kids really had a great time!

Thank you all, you have been very helpful. Dreams PC seems to be checking more boxes than most so far, but we haven't looked at Royalton or Grand Palladium yet. Will do that today! Thanks again and keep the suggestions coming

Dream PC is good and Grand Palladium would also be good for the children with a better beach.

Another Dreams PC fan here, first went when our son was 8, go back in three weeks and he is now 19. Great resort for active teens with enough luxury touches for the grown ups in a family hotel.

We also upgrade to Preferred Club, but have been with people who didn't who had a great time too.
