Like most all inclusives, Dreams properties offer watersports, beautiful pools, multiple restaurants, and kids' programs. For children age three to twelve, Dreams has the "Explorer's Club", which typically has both indoor areas (game rooms, giant screens) and outdoor areas with playgrounds and climbing walls. Staff can contact parents with special buzzers given out at at the club. (Read about types of kids clubs at all inclusive resorts.)
Dreams also has "Core Zone" Teen Centers which aim to add fun for kids 13 to 17. Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa has a Core Zone, as does Dreams Cancun; new Dreams all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean will have Core Zones, and older properties may get additions - check with individual resorts. Features at The Teen Centers include*:
- high-tech games, audio-visual systems, games tables
- drink and snack machines
- sports areas such as basketball courts, batting cages, climbing walls, archery range, remote-controlled race tracks, giant chessboards , mechanical bulls, and more.
Other features that families like at Dreams Resorts:
- guests don't need reservations at the a la carte restaurants. (Hassles encountered in making reservations cause frequent complaints at some all inclusive resorts.)
- 24-hour room service, a convenience especially when traveling with little kids

- Go to a site like TripAdvisor and check for comments from families -- and pay attention to the dates of the comments posted. Teens like to meet other teens, and a lot of their satisfaction at a resort will depend on the social scene during their visit, which differs with time of year (i.e. school spring break weeks will be better for meeting other teens.)
