We are just back from 2 weeks at the Viva Palace. We had a wonderful time. I agree that some things need improving, but for us they were minor things and they didn't spoil our holiday. I'll start from the negative: our room was a bit dated, but we had opted for a promo room, so we knew it wouldn't... More

I will start by listing the positives. The grounds were gorgeous and well kept. The staff with the exception of the front desk were friendly and helpful. Beach was nice. As an American family, we were the minority and hardly anyone spoke English. Not really a problem if you are looking for a European experience from culture, to food, to... More

• Visited 32 - 3/10/15. There were more English speakers than our previous visits to this resort which provided more social opportunities. • Only 2 hours from arrival at airport to being on the beach, chose mid level transport, both years we did that we were the only passengers. • Daily temperatures in 80’s! I prefer a sweater or shawl... More

Visited with family and friends for 10 days, unusually long stay for Americans but what can I say, I like long vacations. Grounds are beautiful and the employees are great, very friendly, exception for the animations team who I found to be not very engaging unless you were European. I can't attribute that to a language barrier because many spoke... More

We made this trip using my parents' RCI/Wyndham membership, which they want us to take over. This trip did not "sell" us on the idea at all. The beach is really beautiful and comfortable, definitely a high point. The resort is superficially beautiful but there were so many flaws along the way. Examples, when you walk down the steps outside... More

The Palace and Beach are part of the same resort and share the same beach and many of the same facilities although they also have some different dining facilities and lobbies. First off, this resort is owned by an Italian and yes, does cater perhaps to Europeans & Italians. While we were there, it seemed like 70% of those around... More

Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace and Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach are two resorts in one, meaning that they are connected. The side of the Palace is more quiet, the side of the Beach is on the best part of the beach, where you see tiny fishes, some flying fish and colorful fishes near the two small reefs right at the shore....

If you have gone to other big resorts all inclusives like Riu or iberostar and then came to this place, you will be quite disappointed. The good things about an all inclusive is that you don't have to worry at all about anything, while in this hotel everything meant trouble. The first day we got there we were assigned a... More
