Viva Wyndham Tangerine
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
11 Grade 12 boys, 3 kids, and 10 adults for a fun sun filled week. Weather was awesome, boys played volleyball, football, baseball on beach, lots of boogie board surfing, went to Bobo's for real surf lessons, hobie cat sailing, did deep sea fishing trip, Cabarete beach bars for happy hours, and some disco action. Mexican and Italian restaurants were good; buffet gets a bit hum drum but manageable for a week. This is a smaller hotel on an amazing beach for walking and watching the kite surfers. Having seen photos of the crowds at the giant Punta Cana resorts we made the right choice to come here. We will be back to Cabarete for sure! We travelled with Air Canada vacations and they were great.
This hotel actually turned out better than I was expecting based on reviews. Just after renovation, well kept, great food, right on the beach. I would still recommend investing into the following areas1) Air conditioning in the room. It simply doesn't work, especially in rooms on the high floors in buildings other than the main one. Either there's too much heat from the roof, or the AX unit simply doesn't function properly - but we couldn't get a temperature below +27C / 80F and were sweating all night and didn't get a good sleep. In the main building it's actually better, maybe because there's central AC that cools hallways.2) Room classification. I simply cannot understand why rooms in the main building and in other building are both called "superior" - when the former is approx. 3/4 of the size of the latter. The first room we got was in the main building, second floor, right above the main buffet, facing a big wall - and it was really small. Then we were moved to room 2531 in a separate building - and the size of the room itself was the same as the size of the first room AND the bathroom. Plus the bathroom in the second room was much bigger! But, like I said, it was 3rd floor and very hot, so I am hesitant to recommend either one... The "oceanview" rooms are actually facing the pool, so not sure if they're worth the money either.3) Internet connection. The hotel offers both free (in the lobby) and paid Wi-Fi - but they're both using the same internet channel, hence it's very slow at any time during the day. I think it makes sense for the hotel to acquire a faster channel at least for paid Wi-Fi service4) Last but not least. We were completely unaware that swimming in the sea would be so dangerous, especially for young children. The waves are very high, and even on a "calm" day there's a good chance to be hurt by a wave crushing on the shores, if you're not careful. And on a "stormy" day, which is in fact every other day - don't even think of going into the sea. I wish this was better explained by the hotel at the time of booking, this is actually a safety matter. Good thing the hotel also has two large pools plus a separate hot tub.Also it is really close to town, which could be a plus or a minus depending on what you're looking for. Overall, I liked it, but I don't think I want to come back.
Well this was our first time to the DR. and we loved it. Our room 3228 was super and Big, lots of space and huge deck and nice bathroom. We were in the main block and so it was easy to get to everything, under 5 min to anything. The buffet we amazing and tons of choices. We went to one of the other resturants, the food was good but could have been warmer. The Disco is fun and lots of lights for dancing. Super staff and wonderful grounds. The bar was well stocked and the drinks were very good. Tea and coffee is on tap all the time and there is a snack bar open from 11pm to 6 am. Fresh water is always on hand and the room is restocked with fresh bottled water everyday and you CAN NOT drink the tap water, but it is no big thing. Meet lots of nice people and it is a short walk to Cabereta the closes town. THe Kite flying is fun to watch and it is windy so you might want to bring a long sleeve for the night time. Beach vendors are beach vendor, a polite no is what it takes. We brought USD and that was fine. Brush up on a bit of Spanish and you're good to go.
Parents on vacation with children let their kids run around and seem to forget about them. Often at the buffet you would hear them crying and you would think the parent would take the child out. No, not so much. Beech is ok. I've seen better. Food is very average and make sure you don't order lasagna. One layer of pasta. That's it. They won't see us back......ever
Me and my family stayed two weeks at Viva Tangerine in March and it was our first time in the Dominican.We loved the beach and the pool areas and we watched the kite boarders every day. The waves in the ocean where big, so you have to watch out, but my teenagers loved itThe room was nice and clean, food was excellent, the pizza was outstanding.Staff was so friendly !!! This was our first visit to Dominican Republic and Viva Tangerine, but we will be back.The only drawback was the slow Wi-Fi, but on the other hand we read a lot of books instead.
