    I have nothing negative to say about this resort. From start to end, everything was perfect. The staff were lovely and the food was delicious. I felt safe from COVID19. They are strict about gloves and masks in the buffet. The Italian restaurant was delicious and has an amazing view. I only regret that JLo was filming a movie there and rented out that restaurant for her crew and we never got to eat there again. Rooms were well cleaned and maintained. Animation team was great. I would go back in a heartbeat. Just be careful of the ocean. Cabarete has a lot of wind and really strong undercurrents.

    Viva Wyndham Tangerine resort near Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. PROS: - This resort has direct from-the-pool and lounge access to a fantastic stretch of beach in Cabarete Bay. - We enjoyed our routine with our kids at the resort, but also had fun with a hike to the local town to do some shopping, find some ice cream, and to pick up some treats from the grocery store. - The kids enjoyed plenty of time in the pool and joined in the activities with the on-site daycare. - All of their grounds staff seemed friendly, thoughtful, and did a good job keeping the place clean and tidy. CONS: - Unfortunately, in our group of 2 families of 4, we experienced 2 cases of food poisoning - this alone voided any financial savings we hoped to relish. - One of the couples was staying in an older building which had a problem with ants, and generally dilapidated finishes. - The other couple had a view of the ocean which came at a cost of being exposed to the loud “disco” until late each night. - There were people who appeared to be staff who were actually looking to poach you away from the resort to spend your precious vacation time sitting through a multi-hour sales pitch about another local time-shared resort. - The on-site photographers offered a verbal deal for professional photos only to flip the details at delivery and try to gouge us for way more money. - And to wrap it up we were surprised with a $2 USD/day bill for using the safe they provide in the “all-inclusive” room. They install a safe in each room subtly hinting that we shouldn’t trust the staff or other guests and then charge us all extra for making use of what would seem to be standard equipment. Fortunately, we were not charged extra for using the provided TV, hairdryer, or mini-fridge… In summary; the resort and grounds itself are perhaps worthy of 3.5 stars, but the compounded negative experiences drop my rating down to 2 stars. And as you can see from my list, the `cons` outnumber the `pros`, so I can’t recommend this place and will personally never return.

    Perfect Location. The resort has everything you need without the long walks of the larger resorts and the beach is beautiful. We walked into the small town, which was only about 5 min down the beach. The village was clean, beautiful, and inviting. Many of shop workers spoke English. The activities/ animation team on the resort was great, wonderful at entertaining and very respectful. We were a large group, some wanted to do all the activities and some just wanted to relax. Something for everyone. A shout out to Babyface, Dada, and Martina on the animation team. They were all great but I’ve forgotten names. They kept us so busy we hardly noticed there isn’t a swim up bar. The food was great in all the restaurants. The buffet was well stocked and almost no line ups. No complaints at all, and many memorable dishes that we still miss, like the lasagna in the Italian restaurant. And these crab cake things in the snack bar. Really all the food was great!!
