Location: On a beautiful beach in Bayahibe on the Southeast coast, 15 minutes from La Romana airport, 25 minutes from the city of La Romana, and 3 hours from the Punta Cana airport.

Viva vacations!

We are repeat visitors, so we obviously like the place. This was our third visit, second as members, first at Christmas time. We had a first row bungalow near the trapeze. These rooms are not large but are super convenient with postcard views. Having previously stayed in a bungalow as well as a large room on the Palace side, we again chose a bungalow. Next time I'd want to be a bit further from LaRoca pool as its equipment noise obscured the ocean waves at nights. I often strolled out and sat on the pool deck to hear the waves. As members, we are able to dine à la carte each evening. We tried all the restaurants, except Atlantis as hubby has a shellfish allergy. We loved Placito de Coco (the newer Dominican one by the Palace shopping area), 25, and the ravioli at Il Paco is one of my favourite things. All the others were good, but do be prepared for some leisurely dining and plan accordingly. The nightlife here goes on late so no need to rush through supper! Every night they have a big show in the theater at 945. It gets crowded and hot. But some shows are very good, especially the trapeze one. After the show the fun moves out to La Placita for outdoor dj dancing. The pool is nicely lit up at night. After the outdoor party, folks move on to La Locura disco... we didn't hit the disco this trip but it was fun other visits. We did visit the pizzeria, a must for a late night snack!If you feel for a quieter evening, head to the Palace lobby where there is live music most nights and a relaxing ambience. Shout out to José at the lobby bar for his excellent service. Both la Papaya and the VIP bar are also laid back in evenings. Mornings would start with excellent cappuccinos before breakfast. Lunch would usually be at LaRoca because they serve the famed Viva wood fired pizza there at lunch. Also, members can dine in the Atlantis area at midday with views to dream of! We enjoyed archery, kayaks and a hobie cat ride, as well as lots of beach and ocean time. Service in members beach areas was more miss than hit, but to us, getting up to fetch our own drinks is no big deal. And it's such a wide property that when it was time for a refill it was often time to change locales. There was a spectacular members feast at Viva Café one night, again with live music. Very nice. It would be spectacular if that venue could be a VIP bar during the day. We met some other English speakers this trip (I'm noticing more English with each visit. In 2009 it was super rare). We would meet each afternoon at the VIP bar to enjoy the bubble tub and the spectacular sunsets. Bring repellant if you like enjoying sunsets! One comment, the bartenders in the VIP bar should really offer better service. It was never crowded yet the staff remained stationary behind the bar. And they were rarely as happy and outgoing at the barkeeps at other bars. Still and all, they made excellent cocktails with their topshelf brands. The grounds are immaculate and every day of our stay we noticed more and more Christmas decor going up. Very festive. Drink tip: bring a large insulated mug. Makes for less trips to the bars, keeps things cold, keeps the bugs out!Beer tip: for some reason the taps at El Trago bar always have the best Presidente on the property. Maybe the German influence? Animacion language tip: the activities near LaRoca pool are in French, Placita in Spanish, Papaya in Italian. Not sure about ElTrago, maybe German. We are beach people and don't go in for many activities. Saona island: I've been twice. It's beautiful. Went once with the resort and once with a private company. Much preferred the private tour. The Viva one was OK but was basically an extension of the resort on a different beach. The private tour felt more authentic. Dominicus Village and the flea market: Vendors are pushy but friendly. You can haggle. I always feel safe. Although when hubby walked through village solo he was offered many 'massages'. Nice restaurants and shopping in the village, some with air con. Beach market is fun and open air, right next door to the Palace side. The sea: breathtaking. Areas to snorkel right off shore (bring banana). Areas to float, areas for water sports, areas to jump waves. I found Palace side beach east of Viva Café a bit calmer. Overall, this resort offers something for everyone. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. A bit of Spanish goes a long way. We will be back, and with a larger group next year.

Fantastic week!

Had a great week, from the minute we arrived the staff were so friendly and the place is beautiful. HUGE Beach with enough chairs that we never had to search, multiple pools all very clean well maintained. Our basic rooms were small but had everything we needed ..who spends time in the room anyway 😃 They had many beautiful little huts...I'd like to try that next time. Food was wonderful, in the buffet and the 3 restaurants that were part off our package. And the stone oven pizza was fabulous! The best thing about our stay was the fantastic staff. So friendly and smiling all the time. Special shout out to our two favourite bar guys Thomms and Carlos Gil...best service ever. The animation crew were amazing, doing the various activities in the day , rehearsals in between and putting on a different show every night. We met two absolutely lovely young ladies , Alana from Vancouver and Heather from Glasgow who along with being extremely talented dancers, went out of their was to greet us and chat with us every day. As the majority of the cast and other staff spoke limited English it was really special to have these two to answer our questions and point us in the right direction when needed. They really made our week special ❤️

Beautiful beyond words

The resort was beyond beautiful. The buildings and outside appearance was gorgeous. The room was amazing and had so much room. The staff, even tho not knowing much English, was so kind and helpful. We absolutely recommend this resort.

Best Inclusive! Lots of fun and great staff.

I am a PADI Rescue diver and we went on a 2 tank dive and out of my 10 years of diving this was by far the safest crew and best boat I have ever been on. Food was great, shops were fair priced, the shows were awesome and the Lookea team was made sure we were involved. My wife did the Aqua Gym and the Crazy Game and I did the trapeze for the first time! We will be back soon!
