Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace Bayahibe Reviews
All's well that ends well Dec 20, 2010
This resort is magnificent but there are many cons to it as well.
The resort was way too far from the Santo Domingo Airport and the shuttle from the resort charged us about $200 usd one-way. I also didn’t understand why we only got one key to each room and when I asked for another one, the guy at the desk said he would give me another key tomorrow. I was just thinking to myself, why not today?
I love Italians but there were WAY too many Italians at this resort and they were all really obnoxious. There aren’t many or any Americans at this resort.
I also disliked how vast the resort was and how difficult it was to find our rooms, but the staff were excellent in helping me find my way. It’s strange how the palace resort is more expensive than the beach resort but the beach resort is much nicer.
The beach resort is also a lot more livelier than the palace resort. The Palace resort is nice for older people or people who want a good night of sleep.
The beach resort had great dance parties on the weekends with amazing people and music.
Luckily I could speak Spanish, but many of the staff members here do not speak English, especially the ones that work at the restaurants/buffets, so non-Spanish speakers, you guys should better review your Spanish prior to your trip.
