Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I believe this hotel needs to understand what business they are in. They seem to not know they are in the hospitality business. I had an issue upon check-in, that was an error on our part, that seemed to be easy to fix but wasn't resolved until after we gave them money. I would urge Americans that if you go to this resort to only go if you are with a group of other Americans or if you are fluent in any other language, especially Spanish. This hotel is heavily marketed in Europe causing it to cater more to Europeans. The resort grounds are really well kept, even after recent flooding. The beach is great but can be rocky at points. I was only able to eat at 1 restaurant but at the buffett moat nights/mornings and ate at the snack shacks the rest of the time. The room was lackluster and kind of run down. The beds were comfortable enough. Our trip was cut short due to Hurricane Maria but we were glad to be leaving. I have never been excited to leave a resort on the beach but the front desk set that precedent by not allowing us to check in until 4 hours of being in the lobby on the phone and arguing. I understand that it was an error but it didn't seem like something that I needed to wait for 4 hours for. I would suggest training the front desk employees and esecially the supervisor to not be so hard nosed about something like that. How was I supposed to enjoy my vacation after that? I would say this resort, compared to others, is not up to par. Again, because of the experience I had I will never return to ANY Wyndham hotel. There are plenty of other hotels that are willing to go above and beyond for their customers.
amazing time at this wonderful resort... they have a lot of experience with the tourists so they can take good care of them...amazing beaches, amzing places and amazing time overall. we can't wait to go there again!
Dominicus is a Town created by a Visionary Mr Wayne Fuller long time ago, this resort start with 24 Stone Cabanas with water beds designed by the Arquitect Fred Goico, this hotel is amazing since then.
Had a great time. Resort is beautiful. Rooms a little old, but did not spend much time in the room. Beach had lots of shady areas. Ocean was great and lots of snorkeling (bring your own snorkel). Buffet food was pretty good. Lots of choices. Many bars and sometimes the drinks were weak. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Only complaint was WiFi.
Wow. Just wow. I am still in awe with how amazing our trip went at dominicus palace. My girlfriend's family and I stayed there for one week and I must say that we were thrilled to enjoy the beautiful resort, the hard working, super friendly and best staff I've ever met as well as an equally talented entertainment crew, plus the excursions they had to offer were seriously so cool! The second we got there the bell hop had our bags on the cart before we could blink and had us smiling and laughing all the way to the room. I wish I got his name. Once there we realized that one of our room keys didn't work. He immediately sent out for the repairman, problem solved. We had 8 people between three rooms. In our room we had four so we requested that we have extra towels. They honored this all week. Buffet was great. Being able to snorkel right out of your backyard was nice. The pools were clean and the entertainment group kept us entertained with dancing and games during the day which was great when we didn't know what to do next because they would periodically always have something new and challenging to do if we wanted to. At night the theater performances were absolutely stunning. Seriously, great job on the Michael Jackson show on August 4th you guys rocked all week but that night in particular was the best concert I've ever been to. I mean it. Show out to all the dance crew and every single bus boy and bus girl during feasting time. Not one person missed a beat. Out of all the bars we went to and all of the exciting things we have done. three bartenders need to be shown appreciation in particular. Maribel, Oscar, and Manuel. By far the best bartending service I've ever received, and I didn't even have to tip/pay! Not only did they excecute flawlessly, but during different hours and different stations they were always happy always prepared and always ready for the next order. Whomever was around during one of their shifts. I'm telling you that they didn't want to leave the bar because they were so effficeint and so fun and welcoming. Best service I've ever had. Thank you to all staff members. Including the water equipment people and gym guys! Every person included in my text made an effort to be more personable than the average worker. Besides the bartenders maribel, oscar, and Manuel one more name comes to mind when talking about being personable. His name is mielassa. We did two snorkeling excursions. Thankfully for him, he saved our uncles life. Long story short, he's fine now just a scary event. But this man went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time both times we sailed with him. We all became friends. What I loved about the place the most was that miellassa called us by our nicknames I.e. Tio Loco (crazy uncle Steve), and maribel Oscar and Manuel made us feel like family. Every conversation we had was special. This viva practiced what they preach. Somos amigos para siempre. I can't wait to come back!
