Our OpinionA favorite. The rooms are big and bright, the grounds are lush and manicured and the food is great. The beach is amazing and the town of Cabarete is 5 minutes away. Great for windsurfing and kite sailing.
Location: Beachfront, 3 min to Cabarete, 20 min from the airport.
Very friendly staff good meal bit windy but its ok the city of cabarete is across the street no problem with our security your able to shop for souvenirs across the street. Do not touch anything in the store they put what you touch in a tray and they try to make a deal whit it
Being experienced travelers we know things can go wrong. We are neither fussy nor demanding. We can also see that in most cases, hosts and staff are acting in good faith to remedy an issue. However, what really angers me is when you know you're being intentionally screwed. The resort was booked through Sunwing Vacations six months prior, for Dec 2015. We were placed in a cockroach inhabited room above the main buffet/worker service area with a view of a 25-foot cinder block wall. Kitchen machinery commenced at 5:00am and did not stop until 10:30pm. To add insult to injury we were told that no optional rooms were available because the hotel was expecting the arrival of European guests. The Hotel manager blew us off for four days and the Sunwing rep was MIA. Further, we learned that more Canadian couples had been placed in these rooms leaving one to believe that there was systematic exploitation of Canadian travelers by hotel management. Upon returned, a letter detailing the issue to Sunwing Vacation was met by a "Buyer Beware" rubber stamp response. PS. Note that the "Terrible" rating is in relation to hotel management only. See attached photo's. Audio/video is available detailing the noise but there is no option on this site to include it.
I had a good time at Viva Wyndham Tangerine. It was better than expected considering the price. The food was very good. It was hard to get a cocktail as they only had one bartender and he didn't move very quick. Usually I had to stand in line for 10 minutes to get a drink. But like I said, for the price is was very good. Just don't expect a Punta Cana experience.
Great place. Return clients. Love the staff and area. Beautiful rooms. We know Renovations are taking place now. We look forward to the reopening and we will be back soon. We will contact Hector at guest services to book ASSP. We love the Italian and Mexican alacarte. We miss the staff and the beach!
4 stars my a... Don't get fooled by the outside look of the Hotel. First room we got had this strong smell of moisture, no air conditioning, cockroaches, no fridge, moisture everywhere, no hot water in the shower, lots of outside noises. When i inspected the mattress, i saw suspicious traces of beg bugs. We got back to the lobby to be relocated, but the hotel was already filled with lots of local Dominicans there for the Week-End. So we had to spend one night in this 1 star hotel room. I slept (or tried to sleep) over the sheets, disgusted, sweating like a pig and stressed out. We got back the lobby the next morning to change room but oops "sorry but u have to spend another night there". Unacceptable.It's my third time in the Caribbeans and it's the first time I get physically grab by the arm by an aggressive vendor on the Beach and he made sure i feel horrible for not buying his stuff. As soon as you put a foot a on a beach, there are vendors, sitting by the hotel all day. Most of the vendors are OK but like i said some of them are aggressive and will try to make you feel guilty for not buying their stuff. They all think we are super loaded, which isn't the case. We really love the food, and were impressed by the buffet, but than i got really sick. Worst diarrhea in years for me.The Hotel is apparently close for renovation, but for the overall bad experience i had i say : Go somewhere else, the hotel is rated 3* but travellers and there are reasons for it.
