My boyfriend and I stayed here for four days over New Years Eve and generally had a great time. There are a few big opportunities for improvement that would really make this hotel great. Here is my breakdown: The great: -FANTASTIC beach (no rocks, swimmable, good for body surfing, not crowded, lots of seating including beds, chairs etc) -All motorless equipment is free to rent and is in good condition (SUP, boogie boards etc) -the event staff is great-hilarious (Jordon, Chocolate, Nickie etc) and so much fun. They are a HUGE asset to the hotel. There are always lots of activities but you never feel disrupted or pressured to do them (bingo, frisbee, dancing..) -The cigar shop is tiny but very well-stocked with Cubans and DR cigars, Allan was AWESOME and we loved stopping by to chat with him. -The rooms and grounds are well maintained and beautiful. We had a wonderful view. We were supposed to be in a room with a plunge pool and the room was not available for the first night so the hotel put us in a 3rd floor room with a beautiful view and gave us free 30 min couples massage. We ended up staying in the room for the rest of the trip because we loved it so much. Well done, Wyndham! -The spa is BEAUTIFUL -The NYE party was a blast and very well done -Most of the staff was very nice and helpful except for some of the staff in the lobby and at the beach bar (detailed below) -There are plenty of nice seating areas to hang out and read, play games, etc The bad -Quite a few of the reception guys and the female guest services lady in the lobby were rude and unhelpful, I went to check out around 6:45am on 1/4/17 (taxi waiting) and the man at reception refused to check me out and went and got breakfast instead. I finally found him at the breakfast buffet and told him that I refused to wait any longer and was leaving without paying my bill ($20 for laundry) and he finally came and checked us out with his bad attitude. Seriously. Also, on 1/2/17 around 5pm, I tried to confirm and pay for a scuba dive the next day. The guest service lady was not there (and never remembered me or was helpful when she was there anyway...). I asked the reception guys if they could help and they told me to come back at 9:00 pm. I did and she was still not there. I nagged them for the next 90 minutes until they finally called and confirmed my dive for the next morning. They were extremely rude, condescending and unhelpful. Also when you check in, no one will tell you about any activities etc. I was given a small pamphlet in Spanish to look at. -The bar staff at the beach is generally pretty rude and dismissive -As others have mentioned, the food is mostly mediocre. I ate a lot of pizza. -There are some mosquitos so bring your bug spray -The hotel charges $70 for sunscreen so bring your own! Overall, this hotel is a great value and the grounds are beautiful. I would recommend this hotel overall with some caveats. If management addresses the issues above, this hotel would go from good to great. The single biggest opportunities for improvement are replacing some of the lobby staff and improving the food.

A wonderful place

I decided to spent 13 days in this hotel, that I chose due to its location, facilities and the wide variety of activities it offers. This sojourn was simply amazing and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I can only recommend this hotel if you are looking for a paradisiac landscape and a place to recharge your batteries while meeting great people. The animation and sport teams are really committed to make you enjoy your stay and are really amazing (who would not dream of having yoga and relaxation classes in front of the beach in the morning, or enjoy surfing and bodyboarding every day?) Thank you all for your commitment, professionalism and kindness. Looking forward to coming back very soon!

Beautifully located resort

Stayed from Dec 31 to Jan 7 2018. Resort is beautifully situated on an amazing beach. It is immaculately maintained. Rooms and grounds were beautiful. Enjoyed the vibe room which allowed for a great place to relax when not at the beach. In general service is good all over the resort. Maid service was at times awkward returning to add a missing towel etc. Not a big deal, but it was odd. This resort is one step away from being incredible - the food is good but not great. Buffet is small and limited, items were well prepared but variety was limited at lunch and dinner.. The a la carte restaurants were better, but lacked finesse and sophistication in presentation. Food was well prepared and seasoned but just lack the finesse of other upscale resorts. Bar service was good and drinks were prepared well. My spa experience was excellent. Very professional and situated just outside the main entrance, it provided an oasis for a massage treatment. Very impressed with their operation. Overall, i had a wonderful relaxing time. I loved the location and beach was beyond my expectations.

Relaxing couples getaway

We just returned from this zen paradise and are already planning a return visit. We have travelled extensively and been to many Caribbean islands and resorts and Viva Wyndham Samaná is in our top 3 experiences of all time. Being only 20mins from the Samaná Airport makes it even better, no long transfer after the long flight(s). Despite it being so wonderful I am unfortunately prone to bug bites - sand fleas/flies - whatever. I brought deet from home (Canada) - don’t bother - buy the stuff from the lobby shop (Deporte). It works. The beach, food and staff are all wonderful. Wifi is good throughout the resort but can drop at the beach. Rooms are basic, but comfortable. We booked a Vibe room which had a nice patio at ground level with 2 chairs and a lounge bed. Also had a small plunge pool that we never used. There is good water pressure in shower and the AC worked great. You get a 25% off voucher for the spa with booking the vibe rooms. I had a massage at the spa and the pressure was VERY firm, almost painful. I know I have a lot of knots in my back but I stated at least twice that I wanted a relaxing treatment. Unfortunately, it was not. The ocean is beautiful but can be quite rough some days. This makes for fun boogie boarding or fun watching waves - whatever your preference. Although we are from the East Coast of Canada and are used to a vigorous surf it was still pretty rough for us to swim a couple of days. We saw green, yellow, and red flags up during our 7 day visit. We walked on the beach in both directions for 20-30 mins. There are calmer waters for swimming to the right of the resort facing the ocean, and good snorkeling about 20 mins to the right, around the bend. We spent one afternoon at the pool and although we are not “pool people” it was pretty nice. A very chill vibe with cocktail service as well. Memorable staff include Santo at the beach restaurant, Yinginfyns (sp?), Victor, Yvonne, and Sammy at the beach bar, Jordan, Choolate and Carlos from the entertainment crew, Carlos at the breakfast omelette station, all breakfast servers, Juan and Marisela at Fusion, and housekeeping was excellent. I can’t remember all the names of the staff but everyone was so helpful and friendly. The entertainment crew at this resort is amazing. They always made you feel welcome and would come by just to say hello and to let you know what activities were going on but we never felt hassled to join if we just wanted to relax. Please, please, TIP for the amazing service the crew at this resort provides. They deserve it!! Bring small bills from home as it isn’t easy to get change once you’re there. There are 3 a la carte restaurants. The ones that are open each eve are posted on a sign at the Guest Services desk in the lobby. Some yummy dishes we had at the restaurants include the minestrone soup, seafood risotto, chicken entree with apples, and tiramisu at the Mediterranean. The spring roll and chow mein appetizers, plus the salmon and chicken entrees at Fusion. Carlos makes amazing omelettes at breakfast and the fresh fruit is delicious - papaya especially. The pizza and the fried chicken for lunch at the beach restaurant were awesome and they will make a pizza with your preferred toppings if you ask. We did not visit the seafood a la carte restaurant. For drinks - Caipirinhas are to die for and the pina coladas, melon balls and Cuba libres are also tasty. The white wine is horrible (IMO) but I must admit I am a bit of a wine snob. I do prefer white over red at home. At this resort, however, I drank the house red with dinner since it was much better than the white. I’m not sure if they change up the house wines or not but while we were there the brand was “Joyeux” something. Friday night entertainment in the lobby is fun. Starts off with a local jazz entertainer then proceeds into a bit of a dance fiesta with the recreation crew. It’s white night on Fridays so bring something white to wear. We didn’t realize this til we were there. Overall we would have no hesitation recommending this resort for a peaceful, adults only getaway. Please remember to tip the hard working staff.
