Nice getaway

I would recommend this hotel to other vistors. We had a wonderful time at this resort. The staff were very professional and helpful. The beach near the resort is pretty quiet and clean. The only issue with this resort is that it is somewhat secluded from the shopping centers in town. However, the resort has lots of options to pass your time (e.g., snorkeling, night time entertainment, dancing at night, and several boating options). A stroll on the beach at night is the perfect way to end the day. The location is great! We even saw a stingray and a dolphin/shark (not sure what it was but we did see a fin in the water very close to the sure right before sunset. Exciting!) The bartenders were awesome and the entertainment crew were amazing!!! The DJ played a great mix of songs and was open to taking song requests. The buffet food is somewhat cafeteria-like, but that's expected when cooking for that many people. I would return to this site if given the chance.

Relaxing vacation

The staff was friendly and welcoming. There was always something to do, or you could relax by the pool or beach. Very clean! Only down side was lack of snorkeling equipment. Other than that it was great!

Upgrade the facilities please!!

This Place has potential but it needs better upkeep of the physical structure. There were too many mosquitoes in the room and the room smelled of cigarette smoke all day and night. The food and activities were the best things going for this place. The instructions given by the front desk upon arrival are not clear, therefor it takes you a while to find your room.

Camping except you have a room.

The staff at this resort were rude, they didn't seem like they wanted you to bother them. The room with an ocean view that I paid for was on the ground floor behind a huge bush that obscured the view. (They did change the room after complaining) The only place that has A/C is your room. Drinks were not good, plastic (re-useable) glasses that they offer were dirty. The food areas where full of flies, birds and bee's. I did not once see anybody with gloves on. Both staff and guests were all just picking up food with their hands. The building and the grounds need alot of work done. If you are looking for anything other than lying on the beach all day, you need not visit this resort. The entertainment was pretty much null and void, except for an hour a night at there shows. If we had booked anymore than the two nights we had, we would have left the resort. We did find a nice place called Margaritaville Sand Bar a short walk down the beach, and if it wasn't for this bar we would of had the most miserable trip yet.

worse vacation

first day, we arrived early for check in, so our luggage was put in a storage room, and one of my wife perfume went missing, then they gave us the wrong room, we had booked for ocean view, instead we got garden view, it looked more like desert view, they gave us our room the next day, the hotel is an all inclusive resort, but the food was so bad that we were dining out all the time, you have to buy your own bottle water, i noticed at least two of the employees drinking beer while working. we hanged out by the beach, they have to improve the quality of food to make it more enjoyable stay, it has been the worse hotel that i have ever stayed, and i have being traveling for 14 years

Great Trip!

My first feeling when I arrived at The Viva was disappointment, as I didn't find the resort as pretty as I had expected nor as pretty as other resorts I've been to. However, that feeling dissipated within the first 30 mins to hour. If you choose to book, you have to go with an open mind. The resort is more of a massive beach house, with many open windows and doors. So air conditioning is minimal. The resort however offers many activities to compensate (paddle boarding, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, canoeing, etc...), which is great. An additional perk is that the resort is relatively small, so all the facilities are close to one another. There'll be no need to travel far for anything i.e restaurants, beach, buffet, pool, etc... Once settled in, you should make a right on the beach and walk about 1/2 a mile to the SAND BAR. It's a nice bar to visit... Then, if you're up for it, walk another 1/2 mile in the same direction, to the end of the beach, and you'll find another beach!!! Prettier than Wyndam's. It's actually more like a channel, but it's well worth the visit!!! Then, get on the bikes, which are unfortunately falling apart, and bike to TAINO BEACH, where the beach is also prettier and where they also have a lazy river pool. It's only a 20 min bike ride, so it's well worth it. And on your final day there, go to PIER ONE restaurant. You'll see sharks! And the food is amazing! That'll be a 20 min cab ride. Overall, he resort is fine...but just don't go with high expectations. Your expectations should be as if you're going to a really nice beach house. Bring a positive attitude and your friendly self, and you'll be just fine. The beach is nice and the pool is comfortable. And at the end of the day, chances are it's prettier than wherever you're coming from.

Great time

We read the reviews and were a bit apprehensive. We were pleasantly surprised. The resort was clean, food was good and staff were extremely pleasant. Beautiful beach. It was not expensive and as such was not a 5 star, but very nice.

Not What I Was Expecting

Food - Definitely could have been better. I'm a vegetarian and there was not a lot to offer. Not to mention this is a resort in the hot Caribbean and they do not serve ice cream!!! Very disappointing. The rooms were average. Could use some updating. The staff was pleasant and always helpful. I expected more from a hotel with the "Wyndham" name and being all inclusive. I would go back to the Bahamas, but probably not to this resort.
