Wyndham Dominicus Beach
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
For the past 10 years or so, we have travelled many times at the Caribbean region staying at different resorts. This is simply one of the best with nice beach, great customer service, good food & drinks, wonderful people and, above all, exceptional entertainment team offering excellent fitness classes, fun children & adult activities, and amazing shows. Kudos to the Animacion manager (Mama), Juan Jackson and Franklin for making our stay awesome. Our group really enjoyed it and will come back.The resort should, however, try to improve in these few areas of concern: - Set designated space for smoking as many people smoke almost everywhere.- Improvements needed in some buildings- Free internet does not work wellOverall, this was a great trip and we'll come back.
I liked the small beach houses just for two of us, with the private balcony wherein we could sit on the evenings and rest wile drinking Cuba Libre and Pinacolada :) btw. in all inclusive drinks you have original alcohols, not only local ones - that makes a difference Hotel offers a lot of animations for adults and children, so you can enjoy your time without leaving hotel, especially that they also offer various water equipment for free. Of course there are also available some extrusions, e.g. SantoDomingo, Saoma, various diving cruises and sailing. Everything you can arrange without leaving hotel. On top of that, the prices of souvenirs are quite competitive to the ones on the other locations. It's even better to buy stuff on the hotel area than in the stores recommended by the tour-guides, who are profiting because of arranging customers.Every night there is a long lasting part on the swimming pool, so if you prefer some relax, then don't take a room next to the main swimming pool.
This place was nice for a short 4-night, 5 day vacation , the room was clean, had a lot of beach The Good:- had a very large buffet area for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that was changed up each night- The room was cleaned well each day. Beds were comfortable and the entire room was spacious- The resort had a decent sized beach with some non-motorized water sport equipment- Was close to a disco-techa that was off the resort, but within walking distance- Has a cute but only-for-tourists type of town built around it, but has a rental car facility- Has great excursion options AND OMG I RECOMMEND DOING THE ATV/GO-CARTING BECAUSE IT WAS AMAZINGThe Bad- Most of the excursion pick ups were at least an hour late, so we wasted quite a bit of time just sitting around, not knowing if they were going to show up or not- The drinks are very weak (though, at an all-inclusive this can be kind of predicted)- We could not get a reservation for any of the other restaurants. Correction: We thought we had a reservation at the french restaurant, however, it turns out that, on the same night, it was closed down for a private party, and the concierge was unable to make us another reservation. - If there are any types of festivals going on in the little town, you will hear them no matter where you are in the resort. - The night shows were entertaining, but only because they were so bad. I recommend this place for people that want a cheap all-inclusive with no set pre-conceptions of what they want. If my husband and I wanted to take another last minute vacation to the dominican, we would probably book again but change from staying in the main hotel areas, to getting a private hut.
We just stayed at this resort and it was one of the best vacations we've been on. We did have a few problems the first night but they were fixed. The staff was very friendly and made sure what we needed was taken care of. We had read mixed reviews but I would definitely go again. The drinks do come in small glasses but we brought our own Yeti cups and the bartenders would fill them up any time we wanted. If we asked for a stronger drink they would do it. Especially if you tip them a small amount. The food was good but not excellent. We did pay the upcharge for the Italian and Seafood restaurants and it was worth it. The beach is beautiful and relaxing.
Our 1st visit was in May 2016, we came back in May 2017 and are officially addicted to this resort at this perfect location. All the staff did a great job as previous year. This year we became certified open water scuba divers! Very awesome and beautiful. As they are on resort very convenient. The National Park was about 8 miles away by beach so the shop owners usually have a scooter and for a few dollars they dropped us off at Park opening as it's a long rugged trail and we were the only ones there when we after I thought we took a wrong turn I saw trail incline which is a little tricky getting up and then a short distance away was the opening of cave. It was really awesome and being just my husband and I made it more adventurous. The cave is dark you need to bring a flashlight ( my husband didn't believe me so he didn't bring it or his cell phone) as it's that dark that you could trip on rocks. My husband hehe actually got a little scared and said we should leave and probably shouldn't be in so far. But I had my cell phone light that I wouldn't give him so he didn't have a choice. Then about the middle of cave is the sun coming down just in a round opening from the top which my husband loved but as I went in deeper he stayed by the beam of light from a top and was scared as it looked like a big door with tiny areas of light coming through and he thought it was a sacred room and truly was uncertain. It was tree roots. Even though he didn't have a light source we both really enjoyed it. Then the 8 mile hike back to resort which I found an opening and we were able to get to the the beach. We jumped in the ocean to cool off and started back. Bring plenty of water. We would save up our empty water bottles they left in our bungalow so we had 3 waters each. On the way we enjoyed time with locals that were at the beach. We had an awesome bartender that made up these blue blended ice drinks that were awesome. We can't wait to go back next year.We always vacation in the Caribbean so in the Bahamas we know if we ask a bartender on the beach for a drink and are lucky enough to get it before it's given to someone else then we wait and if it comes great if not get it yourself. Bahamas is always on there time which is no hurry no worries. Jamaica is somewhat like that also so we were surprised to see how quickly things got done at Viva. Wonderful people on all the Islands we went to.In my opinion people that right negative reviews about this resort is seriously an unhappy person. Go a few feet into the ocean and you just look down at beautiful fish. Step out the the front gate of resort and the shop owners get you very happy on Mama Juana and you end up buying things you don't know why you did but it didn't matter as it was a fun afternoon. If you want to be waited on hand and foot and have very high expectations ( which I feel were met) go vacation at a stuffy tie snooty place because it's the vacationers attitude toward a negative experience that will always make a vacation great. My husband and I ALWAYS do our research when going to a new island. We always go off resort alone . We always have a great time because if every little thing that goes wrong gets to you you probably wouldn't be happy anywhere.Sorry but I just can't see how anyone could rate this place with 1 star. Maybe they don't enjoy the ocean and all it's beauty in and around it. Maybe skiing in the Alps?
