Preparing for the Olympic Games

Can you believe that the Winter Olympic Games are only two weeks away? Although Dreams Resorts & Spas are far from the alpine slopes, ice rings and snow covered trails, each of our properties get into the spirit of the winter games. We are in the midst of planning Olympic themed games and viewing parties that will feature decorations, themed food and the games broadcast live on a big screen. The medal count can get pretty heated!

What Olympic event are you most excited to see?

The Best Seat in the House for Superbowl XLIV

Superbowl XLIV is less than a month away and we are throwing quite the party at Dreams Riviera Cancun!

In conjunction with Apple Vacations, Buffalo Wild Wings and several Chicago radio stations, Dreams Resorts recently launched a promotion called “The Best Seat in the House.” Seven lucky winners were awarded a three-night stay at Dreams Riviera Cancun to take part in our Superbowl party as well as have the very best seat for the big game—a lounge chair on the beach!

Where will you be watching the Superbowl?

It’s All About the Entertainment

We have all seen our fair share of off-, off-, off-Broadway shows while on vacation. Because of this, our goal at Dreams has always been to provide our guests with the best quality entertainment possible. So, we hire the best entertainment staff available and work with quality companies to bring in dancers, performers and professional shows. Here is a sampling of the wonderful entertainment available at Dreams La Romana:

Halloween Happenings

Dreams Resorts & Spas took out all of the stops for this year’s Halloween celebration. Our resorts featured adult and kids costume contests, trick-or-treating for the little ones, bobbing for apples and spook-tac-ular food and drinks.  Check out these great photos of this year’s festivities:

Explore Puerto Morelos

A Gem of Knowledge

Always wondered how to pick the perfect diamond, sapphire or ruby?  Picking the perfect gemstone can be difficult and requires some basic knowledge of fine stones. The team at Dreams Puerto Vallarta is now offering a weekly seminar that covers the “4 Cs” of picking the perfect stone—cut, clarity, carat and color.

Each week at Dreams Puerto Vallarta the entertainment team puts on an amazing fire show that gets everyone involved, including children from our Explorer’s Club. Plan on enjoying the show poolside as the sun sets across the beautiful Pacific ocean.

It’s All Fun & Games…..

… when you are the Corporate Director of Entertainment at AMResorts, parent company of Dreams, Secrets and Zoëtry Resorts & Spas.  For today’s blogging fun, we bring you a guest article penned by the King of Entertainment, Rod Gahr.Rod opening

.

Being the Corporate Director of Entertainment is quite the challenge!  Most would say & think “it’s all fun and games!”  And, for the most part, it’s true.  Having the full responsibility of ensuring guests are happy, laughing and entertained is one of the best jobs you can imagine, but it also comes along with its fair share of major planning, thought process & most importantly FOLLOW UP!!!  In the past few years with the major expansion of AMResorts, my job been quite the whirlwind, always on the go, always on the move.  It is quite entertaining to come home from work and realize that I’ve had breakfast in the Dominican Republic, lunch in Miami and dinner in Cancun!!!!
.

The best part of the job are the openings, although I spent last Christmas Eve dinner sitting in a tree house at 2 am eating rice and beans and watching 20 Dominican workers finish building our Explorer’s Club. It’s quite rewarding when you see all the families enjoying the facilities and you can look back years from now and take pride in knowing, “We created that!”  Each opening reflects a complete different set of challenges, visions and the urge to constantly outdo ourselves, expand, create and mature.  .
.

Currently, I’m back in a hard hat and work boots on site in a single-wide trailer in the parking lot of the new Dreams Riviera Cancun, which is truly going to be a spectacular family & friends resort encompassing the best entertaining ideas and concepts that we’ve ever created in our properties.  There are some major surprises in store for guests who vacation here, it’s truly going to be “something to remember.”
.
So in closing, if you’re dreaming of…

  1. watching the Superbowl while laying in a lounge chair with a bucket of beer on a Caribbean beach with a 30-foot screen;
  2. finding a resort where your kids never want to leave the Explorer’s club;
  3. dancing the night away under the stars;
  4. laughing at your partner being hypnotized;
  5. kicking it American Style at every single traditional holiday celebration;

…you’ll find it at Zoëtry Wellness and Spa Resorts and Secrets & Dreams Resorts & Spas, courtesy of Rod and his fantastic team of entertainers!
