We stayed in an Oceanfront suite at the Viva Tangerine so we'd have some more space with the kids, and had an enjoyable weeks vacation, in a bit more detail;
Checkin - Advertised as 3PM, our flight came in early so we were at the hotel before 11AM and had no problem waiting, we arrived on a Sunday which is I guess checkout day for the local weekend trippers. Walked town, had lunch and waited by the pool which was fine, come 3PM no room, checked again at 3:30/4:00/4:30/5:00 and got the room before 5:30, at 3PM we were given the room number and apologies it wasn't ready, around 4:30PM we could still see the outgoing guests sitting on the balcony drinking - FRUSTRATING!!! Not the fault of the hotel however surely they could have sent someone down to get the guests moving...
Location - Good location in Cabarete, probably a 5 minute walk from the main part of town, taxi's motorbikes etc. plentiful for transportatation and the beach out the front was good.
Rooms - Only frustration was that the showers were always cold, not too important given the climate however nice to have a warm/shower on occasion. I was going to complain after day 1 thinking it might have been a problem with our room however other guests reported same thing AND on 2 of the 7 days it actually was hot at one stage in the afternoon. We were in the main building on the corner, so loud music from the shows 10-11PM and you could faintly hear the disco from 11PM onwards.
Food - Simple and adequate, our expectations weren't high as we knew this was a budget all inclusive, so probably exceeded our expectations and there was always something to eat and a different theme every night so there was a bit of variety. The all day dining in the Italian server a very good pizza as well. Drinks - plentiful however not very strong...
Staff - Great
