The room wasn't bad. We had two double beds, and they served the purpose of someplace to sleep every night. The maid service was good. The hair dryer did break on us several days in, but the main desk and maintenance staff was very quick to replace it. It was done before we even got back to the room. The... More

I was not sure what to expect since we got a fabulous price for the 6 of us, so we were open to whatever. I had done research on the resort, read tons of reviews before booking and chances were 50 - 50 to having a great time or maybe not. We traveled with our 3 Kids 2x24,2x22, and our... More

I must say that this hotel was up to now the best we visited in the Dominican Republic. We have been there more than 15 times so we know some things about this country. The service was perfect and we had no problem at all with the check in and check out which was very fast and easy. For us... More

We stayed for 2 weeks at the Palace with our famlily and we had a wonderful time there. The resort is beautiful and very well maintained. The beach is so gorgeous and the palm trees on the beach provided a delighful shade. The food was good and we were able to get reservations for Al Paco and the Mexican restaurant,... More

Overall I would say my experience was fantastic. The hotel appeared to be very handicap accessible. The animation staff is mostly Italian. Most of the guests are European, but it varies by time. Didn't have any trouble communicating in English. The spa was excellent and cheap. We did have access to all of the amenities at the adjoining resorts, which... More

My family spent 7 nights at the Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace, and we had a good time. When we checked in, we were very tired from a long flight (with a layover) and it was also very hot. Check in was okay, however the lady at the reception was moody at first (when we checked out she was really lovely... More

The Pros were the rooms (ocean facing), ability to use facilities at the Beach Resort as well, great staff, yummy cocktails, quality buffets, really good entertainment. The Cons were distance from airport ($90 ride -one way), restaurants that needed reservations weren't worth the wait (stay with the buffets), no tours included in All-Inclusive Plan your dinner reservations (if you want...

Check-in experience was regretful as they gave us a very rotten, old and ugly room and we have to argue hard to get a decent room. Great bonus is the ability to use the neighbor hotel which offer you a pretty big beach not common in Santo Domingo. The remaining facility was average but again you can choose more bar,... More
