Happy Getaway

The drive to the hotel was far. Luckily, we found a wonderful cab driver that was willing to take us around. The hotel was very nice...staff were accommodating. Restaurants were good but, the drinks were blah. Remember please book excursions thru the hotel for safety reasons.

Getaway for 2

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing getaway and the Dominican Republic was the perfect place. This was a first time traveling to the Dominican Republic and we were satisfied. The Viva Wyndham provided a great balance between relaxation and activities. Please note that Viva Wyndham is connected to Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach so you get to share in all the amenities of that resort. The rooms were basic providing two beds, bathrooms, and a closet. We did not locate the stocked fridge until later in our trip (it was located in our closet, which was new to us). The rooms were appropriate for us because we spent most of our time traveling around the rest of the resort. Food was decent. The buffets provided a large assortment which should meet many people's needs. The restaurants for reserved dinners were amazing. I highly recommend the Italian dinner. There are several activities throughout the resort. During the day you can lay by the beach or pool. On some locations of the beach, the staff entertains and gets travelers involved with activities such as volleyball, water aerobics, dancing and more! We had a get time learning the resorts dance! There are several mini shops that you can get various items from. At night, entertainment is provided. Local artists come out and sign, staff put on amazing shows at the theater, and after the shows the DJ comes out for the night life party. We were pretty impressed. The day we left, we were already talking about the next time we could come back. We do recommend brushing up on Spanish (just the minimal stuff). Also, when you arrive at the resort, take a walk around and check out everything! We were amazed at how large the resort was and how much there was to do!

Better than Expected... Great time!

We were looking to get away to somewhere warm for family spring break and headed to Dominican Republic's best deal at the time Viva Wyndham. We had an awesome time and have lots of great professional photos of us taken by the onsite photographers to remember it. We got lucky and had a great ocean front room. We could walk out of our room straight to the beach. It was never too busy for us to dine where we wanted. My daughter (age 10) loved it there. She wasn't into the kids club activities but made a friend who didn't speak English but they managed to communicate well and play. The kids in the kids club seemed to be having a great time. The food was a daily buffet with nightly themes and we all managed to find things we enjoyed daily. The package also included 2 a la carte restaurants which were good for a change of pace. The drinks were never too strong so we had way too many. We had daily snacks of french fries and mojitos and lemonade. We danced poolside with the entertainment staff. It was a great experience and given the price compared to all other trips during the time of year, it was much better than we expected.

Relaxing family vacation

Food could definitely be better. Not many options to choose from and the quality was poor. Buffet was very small and this resort brings in a lot of people. As far as service, it was either very good or bad. Some staff members looked tired and annoyed. Others always had a huge smile on their faces. Would probably return but not in the near future.

Ordinary experience

We are disappointed by the services offered and that were not met. The free internet is not working and is not provided in the rooms. Many services and meals are extra unannounced. The personal attention is aggressive and unprofessional. When requesting bedding had to claim for a day and repeatedly to reply. Poor service in general.

Graduation Getaway

Location: convenient/inconvenient depends on which airport--about 15 min. drive from La Romana airport, about 1 hr. from Punta Cana airport, about 1.5 hrs. from Santo Domingo airport Lobby: easy check-in/check-out--concierges are multi-lingual, make a la carte restaurant reservations at guest services, travel agents' desks, "free Wi-Fi"--horrible signal and only works on/off for small tasks Room: standard room pretty small for four adults, shower only half covered by glass wall so bathroom floor was constantly flooded, not enough towels--received two towels per day for a room with four adults, "comforter" = thin sheet of fabric Pools: four lovely clean pools--three lively & one quiet (two deepest pools only about 5ft.) Restaurants: six free a la cartes (one with surcharge)--can only make three reservations for a week's stay, three buffets (one only opened for lunch), two day time snack bars, one overnight pizzeria Bars: six bars (in each of the two lobbies and by each of the four pools)--drinks varied by bartender on shift Service: some servers/bartenders were definitely nicer than others (as expected) but good overall--we always tipped $1-$2USD at the bars and buffets and $5USD at the a la cartes which seemed pretty uncommon amongst the European visitors (majority of the clientele there) Shopping: two shopping areas within the resort, larger one in the center of Beach and Palace sides and smaller one on Palace side; shopping outside of resort seems to be the same price if not higher (before haggling) as in the resort Excursions: trips offered included Saona Island, Catalina Island, Santo Domingo, Dune Buggees, Horseback Riding, Swim with Dolphins, Ziplining, etc. (typically offered by your assigned travel agent)--we did the Catalina trip where we were picked up via bus from resort, pit stop at a small shopping area, took catamaran to Catalina Island, spent a few hours on island (banana boat, wing ride, snorkeling, lunch buffet), catamaran back to port, bus to Casa de Campo for site seeing and shopping, bus back to resort--wasn't worth the $110 in our opinion but Catalina Island is really beautiful! Entertainment: animation crew spent days at the pools giving dance lessons and nights dancing away on stage in the theater then at the after party on the pool deck by the theater--the theater shows were always great!

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Avoid being hassled by the local sellers outside the resort and having to hassle for a better price and do your shopping in the resort!

You couldn't pay us to return!

I have been to many all-inclusive resorts. Checking in, the staff was beyond rude. They clearly gave more attention and preference to the "VIP Guests" that were checking in. Definitely made us feel less important because we had an orange wristband instead of a yellow one. The bellmen were the only people we found to be friendly. The drinks are horrible (Unless you're VIP). The only ones I could stand drinking are the blended ones but those have so much sugar, of course it masks the disgusting "flavor" of the liquor. The hours of food at the main restaurant were ridiculous. If you are there on vacation, don't plan on sleeping in because you won't be able to have breakfast, which was the ONLY decent meal. The "specialty" restaurants are NOT worth having to work with the rude lady that books them for you. My parents both ended up in the ER after we returned from only a 4 day stay due to the food/water at the resort. Thankfully I liked to sleep so I wasn't "fortunate" enough to eat or have as many drinks as them. My sister was married there. They were VIP as they have a timeshare with Wyndham. The ceremony was beautiful, however, they didn't accommodate all of our guests - we had to wait for them to bring another table over and 4 chairs. I had to have my brother-in-law order me a drink (skyy vodka) because he was VIP and anytime i asked for a better vodka, they apparently didn't understand and brought me a cup of really bad vodka, no ice. No water. No straw. SO RUDE. Mark my words, I will not ever return to or recommend anyone to stay at a Viva Wyndham property. Especially not in the Dominican. RUINED my first visit to the Dominican completely.
