Awesome Beach.......

Hotel staff was wonderful. Food and room were what you would expect for the money. The beach and giant waves were amazing. We laid on the beach and played in the surf all day. If you like the beach this place is great.

had fun but!

I booked as a single person. The room was small, quiet,,adaquet. AC was ice cold the first night but faltered the next 6. I complained but with no repair. My shower was slow then clogged totally. They did return it to slow but had to take a military shower so as not to overflow the pan. I was told that the place was full so no other alternative room was available. The food was OK but I did eat out with friends a couple nights for a great dinning experience at Ally surf camp resteraunt. The couple I traveled with had a spacious room with ice cold air and functional shower. I go there to kitesurf and the conditions were exceptional for the sport!

Affordable and comfortable resort

The Viva Wyndham is a nice resort to stay at if you enjoy kiteboarding and relaxation. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff is terrific. There were a few issues on my trip. The first problem was that the water was not working and I didn't find out until I had used the toilet in my room (after arriving from a long flight) and went to wash my hands, only to discover that the water main was being repaired. Besides that (which was fixed an about 1 hour) the only other issue was sporatic power outages that would last for only a few minutes. Oh, and the wi-fi is only free if you want to walk up to the lobby whenever you want internet access.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

About 45 minutes from the Wyndham is Ocean World (Puerto Plata) which has a beautiful restaurant with an amazing seaside view. Three of us dined for under $30 and had amazine dishes that would have cost upwards of $100US.

Average or below

It was a fair price. Food was ok, nothing special. The room was musty smelling not as clean as it could or should be. They advertise a safe but you have to pay to use it. Also the phone didn't work, they did exchange it but then you had to pay for a local call. The toilet handle broke and the only way to flush it was to put your hand in the tank and lift the flapper. I told them in the morning and it wasn't fixed until the next day. Often trash was laying around for more than a day. First appearance as you enter the resort is appealing but otherwise very run down. What a shame because it is located in a beautiful area. I did find the staff to be very friendly.

Good for the price

The hotel itself was nice. The all inclusive is nothing spectacular. Average buffet food. The liqiour is terrible. It is below well. So dont expect much with that. The beach and pool is very nice and clean. As was our room and the maids were nice and trustworthy. The guest services lady Romana was super helpful. Tons of kite boarders. There is NOOOOO nightlife there. But for relaxing and getting sun its a good deal.

First All In, First time in DR

Advice for first time visitors to the DR. 1. Never take any prices as given. You must haggle, and you must be vigilant. 2. The 'free activities' at the resort are merely there to get you to book your trip. For example, windsurfing and catamarans are only available at 10 and 11 am each day - but the wind doesn't pick up till around 1pm. 3. Once you are there they will try to get you to book other activities. These are ridiculously overpriced. 4. Everyone in the DR is hustling. Just be aware of that. 5. Get off the resort. Taxi's are expensive, but car rentals are cheap (bring a gps or a detailed map), and there are some really cool places to go explore. 6. You will probably get some sort of mild food poisoning. Everyone in our party got a little sick, two of five were out for at least 2 days. It's not just the resort food, but pretty much everywhere. 7. Drink bottled water. See 6.

Amazing food - great beach access

The one thing that impressed me the most was the food. Absolutely amazing offering in the breakfast, lunch and dinner buffetts. You get about 20 different options that change daily, huge dessert trays and great entrees. Also the beach access is unbeatable. some tips: if you go kiting, take the ocean view room so you have place for you gear to dry and watch the water for what kite to use rememeber to carry lots of 100pesos bills to use for tips. tip 100 pesos at a time only to the best service people and you will be golden
