To all the incredibly brave men and women who have served in the US military, Happy Veterans Day from Dreams Resorts & Spas! Your sacrifices and continued strength will never be forgotten.

Tyler, a US Army Specialist wounded in Afghanistan, was looking for the perfect way to show his Mom Pamela how much she means to him. Dreams Resorts & Spas was more than happy to help complete their story!

On this Veterans Day, we have a very special story to share. Tyler, a US Army veteran, lost both of his legs while fighting in Afghanistan. His journey toward recovery was long and accompanied by many emotional and physical struggles, but his Mighty Mom Pamela never left his side. Tyler wanted to show her just how much her dedication to helping him through this difficult time meant to him; that’s where Dreams Resorts & Spas stepped in…

We felt so honored to have met Tyler and Pamela and to have been able to make both of their dreams come true! We’re not stopping here, though–this holiday season, Dreams Resorts & Spas is giving back to those who truly deserve an all-expenses-paid luxury tropical getaway. We’ll be giving away up to 10 more free vacations! Watch the video to learn how you can share your story and win a 3-night stay for two guests to any of our Dreams Resorts & Spas! #DreamersWIN

Earth Day 2011 at Dreams Punta Cana

Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa is counting down the days until Earth Day! Guests staying at our resort will have the opportunity to help save the planet by sharing a valuable message with others. We are inviting guests to help us create the message “SAVE THE PLANET” on the beach.” We have a helicopter that will be taking pictures of the message, which will be formed completely by our guests. These pictures will be used to help raise awareness for Earth Day through various social media efforts.

In addition to sharing the special Earth Day message with the world, all participating guests will be entered into a drawing to win a 5 night return stay to Dreams Punta Cana for two adults.  The event will take place on April 22, 2011 on our beach at 10:00 am! We hope all of our guests will join us!

In anticipation for Earth Day, here is a poem written by our Social Media eConcierge, Irma Mojica about Earth Day!

Earth Day 2011
You want a vacation with a scene
of Green, Green at Dreams
An April Day of Green
Landscapes of hills
Tropical soft breeze
Rich grounds with a scene
The warmth of the sun
Smell of the sea

You have traveled much land, above and beyond
And Dreams is the place where you can start
Our mission for Green
You can take part
Be on our team
Which you can make it a routine
Just think Green!

A moment that we can just hold
Participate in our goal
How sad it would be deprived of the color Green
Remember the essence of time
Green is Life and Hope
Keep the air and ground clean
The Circle of Life must go on
Share the message to all!
At the beach early on
Save Mother Earth
For our future to come.
By Irma Mojica

Update: Our Earth Day 2011 Event was a huge success. 119 guests joined us in raising awareness for Earth Day by creating the message “SAVE THE PLANET” on the Dreams Punta Cana beach! Take a look:
