Fantastic vacation

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.

Didn't think it could get more better and beautiful but it did!

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?

Wyndham Dominicus

Well I have been to a Wyndham resort before and I expected a similar good experience.To start with they gave me a terrible room although after a fuss I finaly got what I had booked . The resort was / is huge and very unpersonal. The Staff rely heavily on the tips generated and the beverages are poor. No variety only cocktails with cheap rum and even that can't be guaranteed. The coffee bar and ( Johanna) were great! The food and accommodation were clean and functional . The variety was lacking in food and the service was minimal. I was there for three weeks and felt lost and alone. There were four Animaton teams and a few thousand guests. I couldn't connect with the masses of people. The French Animatin-team saved the day . Although I wasn't french they included me within their ranks and gave me purpose. They were loving and nice and generally interested in peoples well being. Thanks to Fanny, Emilie, and Kelly I had some enjoyment. It is not a resort I would recommend even though they have all of the facilities thinkable.

all you may want under one roof

The person with our luggage took us to our room and informed us of the amenities the hotel offers. The room had a patio area. the entertainment was diverse. It is great for families with children. I would recommend this place.

Not a good experience

I stayed here and was less than pleased with everything the best part was a few bartenders that obviously loved what they do. The food was disgusting even the restaurant that you have to make reservations 8am during your vacation to enjoy were disgusting. I am still recovering from the food. The service was bad we had to beg to have our rooms cleaned and get clean towels or washcloths because they would only bring one or the other. They placed us in incorrect rooms after it took us an hour to check in and then gave someone else our room key. We travel a lot and will not ever stay at another Wyndham EVER !
