Wyndham Dominicus Beach
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This is a beautiful property with a beautiful beach. We loved that the beach was so beautiful and the pools close to wherever you were. We were upgraded to a beachfront. Mostly due to the fact that I injured my knee and I couldn't go up and down stairs. Beachfront has a beautiful view with lovely sunsets. We had a king bed that was very comfortable. The room was clean and the maid service excellent. The resort is beautiful and kept very clean. Lots of beach chairs everywhere and also plenty at the pools. There are be h beds to longe on and plenty of umbrellas.The food at this resort was excellent. The buffets make omlets in the morning and have a selection for everyone. The la Terezza Buffet is the biggest and has the best selections. We ate at a restaurant on the resort every night. Mexican, Italian, Metarreanean, Seaford. There is a charge for the seafood restaurant,Atlantis that we all felt was not worth the extra money. That said we felt the food was very very good. We were there for the Christmas holiday and they had a beautiful celebration which included food and desserts.The bar service was excellent at the pools and there were no complaints.We are Americans and we only met a couple other Americans there at the resort. Mostly Italians and employees at the resort speak Spanish and some English. This did not effect our stay as everyone is there on vacation and enjoying their time together.I would certainly recommend this property. Absolutely beautiful. I hope the next time I go back my knee is fixed as there is a lot of walking and there are no elevators to the upper levels in the hotel.
This was our first time to Dominican and this resort and it was fantastic. The food was great with lots of variety and the ENTIRE resort was spotless, there were staff cleaning 24/7 all around the resort. The staff was very friendly and understanding when you can not speak Spanish back to them. I truly only have 2 negatives about the resort, we always had to ask for towels (in our room not by the pool or beach) and they took a while to get to us. Also the "free wifi" was very spotty and most of the time we could not get service. But the beach and pools were spectacular. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone. I had a fantastic trip and will be going back soon!
After reading the reviews I was very nervous in the weeks leading up to the vacation, and almost cancelled the trip; The audience that seemed to dislike it the most were English speaking Americans. I will highlight every particular subject that I think will support my 4 star rating.Tips:- Bring a cup that's bigger than 10 ounces so you don't have to return to the bar as often- If you haggle for anything, and want to find the US dollar price of anything we saw one of the shop owners (outside of the property) divide the peso price by 46 and said that was the best he could do. This was after a ton of negotiating- Bring your own towels. They give you a card that you exchange for towels if they even have any. If someone takes your towel you will be forced to pay $20-25 per towel upon check out. - Bring a deck of cards or a few books. We found that the guest services people didn't speak english and wouldn't really engage with us. It would've been nice if we had cards to play or something. Property:Huge ocean front property with plenty of pools (4 I think), restaurants (3-4 I think), and many bars. They put a lot of effort into keeping trash and dead leaves off the grounds. The city out front of the resort was a lot of fun to walk around in, and it offered cheaper souvenirs (they also offered me marijuana and cocaine, which I wasn't interested in at all). We also took a taxi to the local casino, which was surprisingly nice (about as nice as a mid-level old vegas hotel). Room: We paid for the cheapest room we could get (2 queen beds), and got one of the cottages. It had a nice front porch with two Adirondack chairs, a decent sized bathroom, but the beds were not very comfortable. Also, the room was very small with the two beds in it, but that didn't matter to us too much because we only used it to change. I only noticed one small bug in the room once, which made me happy, because you typically see more bugs in this type of climate. They come in and will up keep the room, but not do too much - make the beds, but no re-stocking. Food:The food wasn't bad by any means, but it also wasn't the best I've had at a resort. They make it impossible to make reservations upon arrival (3:00pm is the earliest check in, and 3:00pm is also when they no longer accept reservations for the day). We ate at 3 restaurants, which needlessly require reservations even though nobody is even in them when you arrive. The Mexican restaurant had great plate presentations, and the food was decent. The La Roca restaurant was also about the same (nothing blew me away). Lastly, they got us to go to the Atlantis Restaurant ($20pp for standard, $30pp for lobster). Atlantis was a beautiful restaurant next to the ocean, and the food was so much better than the other two restaurants. I'd consider returning to this restaurant if we came back. The Buffet was actually very good, and offered a lot of options for all meals of the day. I don't understand how people haven't liked it before. I would almost prefer the buffet over some of the other dinners I had. Bars/Drinks:The service wasn't very quick, but, if you're patient, they'll always get to you in a reasonable amount of time. I found that tipping didn't work too well, so I just stopped and they seemed to help me at the same pace as everyone else. They have a huge memory bank of drinks, and had no problem making new drinks for you at any time. Also, the cappuccinos at almost any time were a nice touch (especially with the cream rum) There's a cash bar near the main area, and they had most familiar liquors and beers (if you're not crazy about presidente or their local liquor). Customer Service:I would say that 90% (or more) of the staff and guests don't speak or understand English that well or at all. For me I loved the new experience of communication, and I found that to be a big value add for me. Nobody was rude to me, and I was able to get everything I wanted/needed at any given time. The service wasn't bad, but it was sort of slow at times. Most of the guests and staff spoke english or french. Gripes:- Upon check out a group we were with were forced to pay the extra $10 per person for the lobster dish at the Atlantis Restaurant. The only problem was that they never had the lobster or even asked for it. The concierge didn't believe them, and made them pay in cash. - The guest service people always want to sell you on something. Luis from guest service wouldn't leave us alone about some hour long presentation to get us to come back. We refused and he ignored us (was very friendly to us beforehand) - Wifi is almost non-existent in the small area they designate for it. If you need to have cell service I would suggest asking your provider before the trip for rates. The hotel charges $25 per day per phone, which was steep. - They charge you to use the safe daily. We kept all of our stuff relatively out in the open of our room and had no issues at all.
Location was great of the hotel, and after reading some reviews before going was worried and nearly wanted to change hotels.. The superior room we had was good and fine... no issues... air con was fine and worked well... as does all air con here in Rep Dom, as you freeze everywhere !! and bathroom no issues... the use of the safe is 2 USD a day ! but OK... this could be atleast included...Beach is lovely... there must have been some big storms as others resorts had no beach.. but here it was still good and well kept.Food etc. Fine I live in Italy.... but food was repetitive , yes a good selection... but I like to eat differently and not have pasta and foods we have at home everyday served to us everyday..... We had a competition NOT to eat Italian for the week ( nothing wrong with italian food ) just to see if we could... Most nights there was an effort to have a different cuisine.. mexican, chinese... etc... but the basis was Italian. Food was OK... nothing amazing..bar and drinks... not so bad.... sometimes takes a while to get one at busy times... but on the whole.... OK.. even though drinks are served in small blue plastic cups.. that you finish pretty quickly so have to go back pretty soon after... some people do TIP as then the bar staff get to know you and surely then serve you faster during your stay....the staff on site... good and friendly.. evening show was always good fun... with the resort song still ringing in our heads...the ones who stay a long time you can see get to know the staff well and helps speed up service while you are there... if we are there for a long time.. OK. but a short stay as we were and out most days to play golf and varous excursions.. we had no time to get to know staff and so service remained as it was...resort in the end.. better than expected after reading bad reviews on tripadvisor... and was pleasantly surprised... was expecting less and got more.. the best way really....
great location service and atmospherei was surprised by the nice staff many timesvery good and diverse food the hotel and room was very clean and spaciouswe did not get bored on 10 days that we've spend there and we didn't leave the resort because my wife was pregnant at that time and we couldn't do any trips outside
