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.
I arrived at Viva Wyndham Tangerine sept 22 and stood until the 28th. When we arrived it was off to a rough start because we were given a room with a view of nothing but trashy grasslands. However when we complained the concierge was graceful enough to change our room with an amazing view and in the middle of everything. I have to say that the resort, the beach, the property itself is beautiful and clean. It's all inclusive resort so the food, the drinks, the restaurants were really good as well but what made our trip memorable and special is the ppl that work there. Starting from the buffet restaurant the server Ricardo Brito and Yvann made our daily breakfast, lunch and dinner so special. They were so attentive and sweet and made us smile every chance they got. The staff member who works for time shares Jorge was also so attentive. He helped us out as much as he could. The male bartenders were also so great and attentive. But the entertainers are the ones that really put the cherry on top for this vacation. Capuchino, Cocoa, Jaqueline, La chama, Blacky and el Pollito made our trip memorable! Literally! These ppl made us laugh till we cried, kept us on our feet with all the fun games and activities but most importantly made us feel so special. Every day that they saw us they showed us attentiveness and just made us feel so welcomed. These guys work so hard and literally all day but no matter what they have such positive attitudes and dont let the extreme hot weather ever affect their attitudes. So whoever is considering to travel here I say do it! The staff will make your trip special!Rose Norman
I liked this hotel a lott. It's probably one of the best hotels Cabarete has to offer. Whether you come for sports or just to relax you feel like home here. The animationteam has a lot of activities and the guys that work there are just great. The restaurant is above average and always has a great variety of food prepared in the morning, afternoon and in the evening. Whenever I went to the restaurant I always felt a warm welcome by the staff. Especially Adileidy did her best to make me feel welcome. Always smiling, always making time for a chat, and always giving the right level of service that you expect in a big hotel like this..
We stayed here twice ... The first time to check out if it was option when we were having a weekend in Cabrete in April . We liked the hotel , and our room was a suite in block 12.We had a nice time and used the hotel for our honeymoon over the new year period. This was an amazing experience. The hotel pushed the boat out for the new year celebration with entertainment and food.The animation team got a lot of the guests involved in the beach games. .. They were fun .. On new years eve we had an amazing lobster dinner in the a la carte restaurant then there was entertainment and a disco by the pool which had fire works at midnight. .We also enjoyed our visit in April. I'm not sure why people have given negative reviews. .... There experience must of been different from ours .. I have worked in all the top hotels on the island as a rep and I am a fair critic.But in terms of cabrete I honestly can't think of a better place or deal .For first timers the beach can be breezy and the sea choppy and full of surfers.We enjoyed walking the beach but just swam in the pool .In cabrete we enjoyed Mojitos and a few beers in José o sheas irish bar ..We enjoyed our vacation here ..On our honeymoon we were in a nice room with sea views. .. I think it may have been block 26 ..We enjoyed this hotel and will return though our next trip will be 3 weeks in Gran bahia rio san juan to bring Christmas and the new year. .. Close to our family and friends. Any questions. . I ll try my best to help.
My friend booked this hotel by accident instead of Viva Wyndham Heavens and I was really nervous about travelling there after reading the reviews, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised!Our first room was 3310 but we requested a room change. I have a hard time navigating stairs because of a recent leg injury and the elevator was out of service so it become painful to use the stairs to and from our room. The the hotel was accommodating and provided us with an alternate room on the first floor. Our room was spacious with two queen size beds. It was very clean and updated. The air conditioning was incredibly strong - we opted for the fan setting instead. On our last day our shower head broke. We advised the concierge and they had it replaced within the hour. The cleaning ladies were fantastic! In fact the entire staff is very hard working! They have an amazing work ethic!!The food was AMAZING! I have a sensitive stomach and I have to be very careful on all inclusive vacations but that was not the case here! Everything was delicious and I had no problems. Even certain items that did not look appealing were very tasty! My friend and I went to all 3 a la carte restaurants and all 3 were great - our favourite was Melt! The late night snack bar was also great - we had the pizza there every night! The grounds were well maintained. The pool is very large and clean. There are jetted areas or shallow ones where you can sit on a lounge chair. There is a good about of seating both in the sun and the shade. The pool is also close to the beach - in fact you can sit on a lounge chair facing the beach in the pool area. There is one bar near the pool which closes at midnight daily. After that drinks can be procured at the disco until 2am.The beach was slightly disappointing. The waves were very strong and made it hard to be in the water. On the plus side if you walk a short 1km on the beach you will reach the town of Cabarete and the water there is much calmer...unfortunately that is not something we discovered until our second last day. The kite surfers are really fun to watch from the beach. We did end up booking day trips to some nicer beaches including Caleton and Playa Grande. I recommend booking with Mario from MS Tours POP. He is very knowledgable and a great guide!!Overall we had a great trip! The hotel did meet my needs and exceptions! The staff was very lovely and attentive!
We were first in room #4016 (small, closet door opening partially, small safe with key only & nothing to hold paper towel roll). We complained the next morning at the reunion to our Sunwing agent, who talk to management. We were first told by the hotel that no other room was available, even if occupancy was about 40% to 50% (renovations). Same day though, we were offered a lot better room #4103 (bigger, nicer, bigger closet...). Sunwing even called the day after to check that everything was OK, excellent service.beach: big waves (powerful, could make you lose sunglasses, sand in bathing suit); a lot of kite surf (dangerous sometimes since so many, and sometimes passing close to swimmers)possible to take long walksvery clean beach, even not in front of hotelsanimation: great animation team (sexy, cocoa, fido, blacky, cappuccino…), there is a lot of activities every day, beach volley ball, aerobics in the pool, dance class, Zumba, bocce, darts and crazy games, and different shows every night.3 à la carte restaurants all good (italian, mexican & fusion)buffet: small, but good food with changes each day; excellent service, specially Britoonly 1 bar: my favorite drink, strawberry daiquiri, depending on the person making it, was from good to bad; I changed to a simpler one (orange juice & vodka, since no cranberry choice was available)good thing, always a waiting line at the bar, no free for all
