The beach is beautiful and the water is warm. We stayed right on the beach in the Beachfront Bungalow. The room is small but we were rarely in the room. The porch overlooking the beach and the ocean was awesome, a great place to people to watch.The drinks were not watered down. Most of the staff does not speak English, but with a little patience you can make the communication happen. I did not mind, isn't the reason one travels to a foreign country is to try something different. The buffet was excellent, there were plenty of choices and everything was fresh. Freddy making the omelets in the morning was right on. The best part of the buffet was the dessert table.....oh my god.....why too many choices!We did eat at the Mexican restaurant two evenings. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We made these reservations the first morning we arrived, no problem.WiFi....the free WiFi is very hit or miss! A lot of people walking around with their phones in front of them trying to catch a signal. If you grab a cocktail, it is a good place to go and sip that while you try to connect. Often you'd have a connection and then boom.....it was gone. Don't think you can relay on the free internet.The one negative.....while were sitting on the porch in the sun, the maid cleaned the room and stole money out of the unlocked safe (we were right outside the door!) We were in and out of the room all morning and did not think we needed to lock up. She did take $100. We did not report it, we felt that because she took money, we could not prove anything. Beware, LOCK UP!I would recommend Viva, it gives you a lot of bang for the buck.
This is a very mediocre all inclusive resort.This hotel mostly caters to Europeans so dont expect to find any Americans there. Service was horrible, food is worse and if you come there be prepared to pay extra for specialty restaurants. We had to cut the stay at this hotel after 2 days and move to another all inclusive just down the street which was way better. In addition since crowd is mostly European, be prepared to see dudes in tiny speedos and thongs who change right on the beach.
Beach is great and this is a beautiful resort. Food is pretty good.. Desserts were awesome.. Weather was perfect.. We stayed January 29 for one week.. We never got to any of the night entertainment.. It runs pretty late starting at 9:45. We saw bits of it.. Our room was fine others complained and were able to move to another and usually ended up at Palace.. Really big resort.. Palace is really quiet compared to Beach.. Both are quite nice.. Not sure if I was going again if I would book Beach or Palace. There are advantages to both.. Staff were great and the resort is beautiful.. Less than 5 percent of the guests speak English.. We only speak English and because of this I would not return.. Of the other people from Canada on our bus the general comments where complaints about the lack of other English speaking guests.. We travelled as a couple where if you were a group it wouldn't probably be an issue
This was our third trip to this resort. We knew what to expect and had a good time (again). Two weeks before arrival we sent an email to the resort asking for our bungalow to be located a bit away from the noisy "piazza" . We did not get exactly the area we asked for, but we got one very far. It worked fine. The resort does not offer free wifi anymore, which never worked anyway. We bought 25 hrs access for $25 and it worked just fine. Besides, it was available in our room. Worth the money. It is true that English is not much spoken here. No surprise, as about 50% guests are Italians, 25% Spanish and 20% French. Only about 5% are from other countries, some English speaking.We only used the buffet restaurant. It is well located with great ocean views and light breeze. The food was good, tasty and sufficient variety. Only seafood was somewhat limited. Service was OK, but in the buffet not much is needed. Even the wine and beer were offered on a self service basis. Good coffee selection i.e espresso, cappuccino etc. at the piazza all day long.The beach is nice and we never had a problem finding chairs. Water is much calmer here than in Punta Cana on the Atlantic coast. Snorkelling is good right off the beach, however some caution is required as there are shallow areas in the coral and one can easily get hurt. Beach walks are possible only in one direction (South), but they are long enough even for avid walkers. There is lively dancing at the "piazza" every night before and after the show. One night they even had a life band. The shows are in the semi-indoor theatre. They were a bit better than average, especially trapeze performances. The shows start time is late at 10 pm, especially for the kids who were falling asleep halfway even with a loud noise around. If you are not Canadian, the rest of this review is irrelevant. It relates entirely to Sunquest tour operator and their service, or rather lack of.We booked this trip with Sunquests Vacations because they use Westjet flights which are at convenient times. Upon landing in La Romana there was nobody at the airport representing Sunquest, directing to the appropriate bus for transfer to the hotel or providing any guidance, which was included in the trip we bought . After wondering around parking lot for 10 minutes and asking around, somehow one driver with minivan said he will take us to our hotel together with another couple in the same situation. At the hotel it appeared that is the rep is never at the property and can only be reached by phone, if needed. The departure pickup time which was given in the tour operator binder had incorrect flight number and its departure time. We tried many times to get in touch with the rep with assistance from the hotel reception and guest services, but the most of the hotel personnel was uncooperative. Some of them did not even hear of Sunquest. The bus pickup from the resort was eventually arranged by the rep but for the wrong location Viva Dominicus Palace while we stayed at Viva Dominicus Beach.The bus showed up 30 min later than the agreed time requiring another intervention with assistance from hotel reception.There was another couple on Sunquest Vacations at another resort who happen to use this ad-hoc transfer both ways with us. They went through a similar ordeal at their resort. We are frequent visitors to Dominican Republic and we don't need much of the assistance during the vacations, but the proper and safe transfer from and to the airport is essential to us. The experience during this trip was stressful enough for us, old timers with some knowledge of Spanish. I can only imagine how devastating it would have been to the first timers.Travelers beware!!!!!!
