We just got back from Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach. We've stayed at much better resorts for the same price. The beach bungalows w/ ocean view are wonderful, beach is a little rocky but nice.
Food and Drinks were the worst we have ever had. No two drinks ever tasted the same, the workers did not seem to enjoy their jobs and had obviously missed the training class on how to mix drinks. There was very little premium liquor, the juices were watered down (at the bar and at breakfast). Julio was the only one who came close to making a margarita or daiquiri correctly and then it still lacked the usually flavors (I don't think it was because of the off brand liquors but more due to the lack of proper quality juices / mixes and training). The food at the buffet was not good. One night was pork shoulder, they chopped a chunk off, slapped it along with the broken cartilage, bone and fat on your plate...looked like someones vomit......literally. The butter is not butter.....even the Italins commented on it. When spreading on warm toast it still would not melt. (butter flavored crisco maybe?) The "American ham" appears to be spam. Never any bacon at breakfast which left you with a choice of eggs, cold meat, cheese (that looked like it had been left out for days) cereal / sweet rolls or something they called sausage =). Their cook I would say has never been outside of the country....(t.g. alot of Italins go there as you could always fall back on pasta noodles) The Mexican rest. was good.
The only three bright spots.......Selena (sp?) the photographer from Canada was great....seemed to enjoy her job, friendly and efficient as was the guest service girl and the gentleman that cooked the eggs / omelets) The only other upbeat people (staff) were the people trying to sell you a membership. The cleaning lady also did a great job as well as the sax & piano player . Everyone else should have to take:
Although we loved our bungalow, the view from it and the beach we would not go back unless the reviews get better.
