The gardens, the lakes, the restaurants, everything. Our room was nice, in the groundfloor and it was very sunny. The housekeepers did a good job however they can do better as some... More

This is the first time that I've stayed in the Caribbean so I don't have much to compare it to. I can tell you it was even more beautiful than I imagined and I had high expectations. The grounds are very well kept and overall very clean. We had no issues with the cleanliness and overall upkeep of the resort.... More

We stayed a week at the Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach and changed hotels on our second week. What a drastic difference in resorts! The Ocean Blue and Sand was spectacular! We felt welcome, the hotel was beautiful, the pools were amazing and warm with two swim up bars. We really enjoyed watching the Crazy Games at 4:00 pm every day.... More

The entertainment guys was wonderful, working day and night to keep us all smiling, and particularly Scoobidoo did an excellent job at this. Thanks for teaching me how to dance without stomping on...
