My husband and I stayed at this resort last part of February and first part of March…..It is a gem of a resort. The location is absolutely perfect and the wonderful people who work here . will make you feel as much at home as a Tim Horton’s commercial..They are there to make your stay lovely…you will not be disappointed. We have been to the Dominican for many vacations and this one , a dream.
The people at the front desk were just so sweet, Welcomed us , assigned us our room , took us there. showed us where things were on the resort etc. We felt welcome right away and we knew we were in goood hands.. And every day after , we were acknowledged and always asked how everything was….. superb customer service.
Our room was fairly small, but people we were with had a lovely large room with gigantic bathroom…ours was clean. had everything we needed. Eveyrthing worked . The maids were in every day..our bedding changed regularly. bathrooms cleaned spotless everyday. and we had hot , hot water all the time. Lovely little patio and the fridge was stocked everyday. Couldn’t ask for more.
Restaurants and Bars:
The main restaurant was very good. Every nite there was something for everyone. The pasta was superb at every meal. Enough salads , lovely bread and most always, chicken , pork or beef. ( beef could be tough though) The waiters constantly filled your water glass. offered you wine. always with a smile and a" How are you "….Hmmmm. such a very nice experience. Tables always kept clean . We enjoyed both specialty restaurants, again, the people made the experience a wonderful one. Great french fries and pizza at the Italian restaurant plus the fact ,that they both overlook the ocean, is a wow.
Beach/Pools/Grounds: The pool was great..close to bar. banno’s and overlooking the beautiful beach…doesn’t get better than that. pool kept at a good temp. not too cold. always enough chairs and enough shade when wanted. Lovely
The Beach.was just perfectly lovely..that blue turquoise just stays in your mind. a little rough and windy so you have to be careful..on a calm day it was great for a swim close to the shore. A lovely long beach to walk. To your right. it will take you to Cabarete, a perfect little Dominican town. with quaint little shops and restaurants along the beach. You can sit and watch the kite and wind surfers all day. very restfull. Walk to your left of the resort for an hour . and take a look at more resorts. homes along the ocean . Very nice. The vendors could be annoying but a firm No thankyou.was usually enough to keep them away.
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Every person of the animation team was wonderful. They work so hard, so many activities in the day. all day and then again in the evening. They are worth their weight in gold. and even if you didn’t feel like participating . they always made you feel welcome. A salute to them.
We plan to return next year. Just couldn’t pass up another chance at paradse and to share a wonderful experience with the special people in our lives. The wonderful staff of Viva Tangerine made our holiday a perfect one. Thankyou and cheers to you all.
