    Watch out...

    In january my two friends and I visited the Dominican Republic for the first time. We felt welcome very quickly as everyone was really nice, but the kindness and the “amigos para siempre”vibe is super fake. The guys from the animation team, who are all married (or at least most of them), like to flirt and play with the feelings from girls who’re visiting the hotel, just to get money from them. The whole team is very aware of this, but doesn’t seem to care and even help those guys to “accomplish their goal”. Even months after my visit, I still get harassing messages... The hotel is really nice, the DR just really is and feels like paradise but please, if you visit this hotel, do watch out for the boys & girls from the animation team...

    a few details should be solved

    The place is a paradise. The beach, the pools and the food were great. But we payed for a room with view to the beach and didnt get one. As compensation they gave us a dinner with lobster. That would have been fine, but the room was small and we had to ask for the towels and soaps nearly every day. The high point are in the animation. José in particular was great teaching our kids how to walk on the paddle boards.

    We were given a room on the ground floor like we requested. What a mistake. The maid kept leaving the sliding door unlocked so that anyone walking outside could help themselves to our belongings. They charge $2.00 a day for the room safe. When I reported it to the front desk, they could care less. They have a dehumidifier in the room which is never emptied. There is a foul stench outside the rooms, maybe from all the geese that are allowed to roam the halls and squawk up a storm at all hours of the night. The pool is not accessible to anyone with disabilities. there are metal pool ladders only. NO CONCRETE STEPS AND RAILING. Hot tub is COLD. If it rains the slippery stone walkway could seriously harm you. The snack bar at the pool is a joke with their hot dogs and burgers and soggy fries. The alcoholic drinks were watered down. Too be fair the grounds are kept trimmed and neat. The foods at the buffet were very good.

    The resort is situated in Bayahibe, La Romana just 30 minutes buss drive from La Romana International Airport. After several years, I returned to this wonderful resort and I was impressed of the entirely redesigned lobby. To my surprise, at the lobby bar I was delighted to meet an old friend Raul the barman. No one can forget his friendly smile and his moto “Especial”! In this all-inclusive resort, the atmosphere provides a level of privacy that appeals especially to adult couples. However, families with children are also welcome and are well taken care off! We had a “Garden View, Superior Room” very clean, good size bed. The rooms are maintained daily by the cleaning crew. All standard amenities and daily drinking water are provided. Complimentary Wi-Fi connection is available all around the resort. The food selection for breakfast lunch and supper is good, with restaurant reservation available as well. We eat mostly at Rest. La Yuca (buffet) which had a good assortment to our liking. My “sweet tooth” was delighted with the selection of sweets available, especially the home-made ice cream. The grounds are well maintained, and all is green - immaculate! The staff providing service at the tables are helpful, polite and attend to you as required. Basically, we found the staff at this resort having a pleasant professional attitude, making sure that you are welcomed and having a great time. The most important time of our vacation was the accessibility to the immaculate white-sand beach, the ocean views looking out over the brilliant waters of the Caribbean Sea, and then enjoying a swim. Life can not be better! Each evening at the lobby bar, has live music, and of couple of time we danced to it. There are also daily shows given by the artistic crew. We preferred evening walks from “Dominicus Place” to the shopping center a nice 15 minutes walk. You don’t get bored at this resort! There are lots of activities available, including water sports, fitness programs etc. We have enjoyed the morning exercises at the pool site conducted by a dynamic team. The selected music that accompanied the exercises was great. In addition, we appreciated all the selection of Dominican music that played daily at the pool site! The staff at the beach bar are all great. In addition to drinks, snacks and light lunch is also available. All in all, we had a great time. Thank you “Viva Wydham Dominicus Place” for an unforgettable 12 days of vacation. This is "Au Revoir, not Goodbye”.
