The best part of the hotel was the beach. Employees were not very friendly especially when they tried to pitch you the sale of a timeshare with the pretense of explaining the hotel amenities. The food was fair. I have had better food and cocktails at other all inclusive properties. There was no swim up bar or staff bringing drinks out to you at the pool or beach. You had to go make a line to get your own alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage. 8'm quite surprised at the lack luster service. I will say that the hotel was clean and the rooms were cleaned at least 2x per day. They even disinfect mattresses which was a big plus. The beach area was perfect.

The only complaint I have is the rooms on the site are not the rooms you get. You have to belong to the Hotel's "club" to get the nicer rooms with extras, like coffee pot. Micro wave and mini bar. The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Always something going on to keep you entertained . We will return!

This resort did not give me a vacation feel. First off, we were limited to 2 complimentary reservations for the restaurants on the resorts. After the 2 complimentary reservations had been used, we had to go back to guest services between 2pm-3pm to see if there were other openings for restaurants on a daily basis. This was such a hassle and felt like such an inconvenience. Secondly, our toilet in our bathroom stop flushing and maintenance did not come to fix this issue until after making a request twice. Thirdly, the housekeeping failed to leave us face towels the entire time we were there(which was 5 days). Not to mention that 2 of those nights we were not provided with the large towels either. Therefore we had to ask housekeeping while cleaning other tenant's rooms if we could get towels, which was also irritating. The room felt moist and not very comfortable and soothing. This resort did not give me the full vacation experience as I intended to say the least.

This is a very nice (all inclusive) resort. The room was nice although a little noisy. The hotel services were very adequate. I was surprised that there were no wash cloths. Had to use a hand towel for that purpose. The food was generally good. Enough selection to please most tastes. The Ala Carte restruants were very good.

Dirty...Worst FOOD ever...people SMOKING everwhere

This is the worst resort I have EVER stayed at. From the moment we checked in it was awful. The front desk staff was rude. We were put in a downgraded room from what we paid for (and not reimbursed) because we wanted a king size bed (which we requested ahead of time and I doubled check we were going to have prior to our arrival). No elevators and people smoke everywhere. The rooms are VERY small, dated, linens are rough, pillows are small, and beds are old, squeaky and disgusting. Some bathrooms are updated which was my saving grace. But, limited towels with no shampoo or conditioner. Bring your own. Expect to be haggled for everything. Nothing is really "free". They are always trying to upsell you and depending on who you talk to, you will get a different price for everything. I think most employees are getting some kind of kick-back...even the taxi drivers. This is hands down the worst food I have ever encountered at a hotel and I travel A LOT. It's virtually impossible to get a reservation at one of the "nicer restaurants" which they only seat at 50% but don't worry, its not worth the wait. It's the same food just plated differently. Oh and the wine tastes like vinegar and the meat look like SPAM. Several in our group got sick. I stayed away from all dairy, fruits and vegetables (anything washed with water) and was ok but I STARVED. The nicest people are the bartenders and employees who work around the pool. Drinks are OK...very watered down. Expect long lines for a drink. We booked through Apple Vacations and they rated this 4 apples...It's barely a 2 star resort. On a positive note, the beaches are beautiful and guests (if you don't mind a fairly foreign crowd) were friendly. Wyndham should be ashamed to have this resort in their portfolio. After this, I will probably not ever stay at another Wyndham resort. Very disappointed. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS HOTEL.

Buffet is decent, but restaurants on site is excellent for food quality and service is excellent. Only 2 bars, no cocktail servers at lobby bar, only 1 beach cocktail server, no poolside servers. Hotel staff is courteous, maid service is excellent, massage service is excellent. Service in buffet breakfast is excellent.

We just returned from Viva and would very highly recommend this resort, smaller in size, clean, everything within walking distance, excellent food all around. The only thing that I think so petty is that u have to pay for the safe, we went all inclusive so add a few dollars to package and do away with safe fee...will recommend this resort to family and friends for sure..Thank u

Nice 4 star + hotel

We just came back and i feel i have to write a words for this resort! Very well organized place! The resort is Not too big, good walk distance to reach everything! Our room was always clean thanks to our maid! The beds was comfy!! Food was excellent always fresh and big variety to choose from! All staff working hard to make their guests happy! Beach very nice!! Perfect place for families with kids of all ages!!! We usually try new resorts all over but if we return to playa del carmen we will come back to this resort for sure!!! Only a little issue, the people who check out early would be nice if they can have a breakfast! Our bus was leaving 6:30am and the restaurant open at 6:30am i left the resort hungry, its maybe only my problem but for me it's important to have a breakfast whenever time I wake up :)) Thank you Viva Maya we had a great time!!

All Inclusive trip very worth it

Our room was clean and well taken care of. We went on an all inclusive trip with an office. The price was right, the beach was one of the most beaches I have ever seen. Shopping is within walking distance, The only negative was one of group had to pay for a sheet he threw up on, They charged fifty two US dollars ----I thought that was beyond excessive. Food was so-so. on the buffet. The hamburgers by the pool were really good. Go it is beautiful Service was great

We are RCI members and we stayed at this resort as part of our vacation time share. We love the resort, we were treated with VIP hospitality. Our room, very spacious. King asize bed and a couch. Jacuzzi was an added bonus. Enjoyed the complimentary robes and clean beach towels delivered every night. The meals were great and our waiter,Jose was fabulous. The beach was great and we enjoyed the second pool that was very quiet. Adult only pool area. We brought floats to totally relax on. So quiet, my husband fell asleep.Shopping right across the street. Highly recommend.
