    Super Beach, But Solid Rock Bed / Pillows made by Concrete Stones. Review of Viva Wyndham Tangerine

    We booked this vacation 2 months back with special request upper floor Garden side rooms. On arrival I reminded the front desk. He said don't wary 4011 its upstairs good room, 4011 located end building in a corner Ground floor rundown room. Please speak the Truth. Again I asked the bell man who came to my room, I shows him about the bed why only box spring with out mattress.(please see tripadvisor Posted pictures of the bed). He said he will inform to change the room. I went in person every day to front office to switch room always system down / wow only for me, but New Guest checking in & out with system working. After sleeping on the Box spring 3 rd day I got neck pain & sick / end up at the local medical center and Spa to fix my nick / body. Very Good beach / Humble staff / House keeping staff Excellent workers, but no power can't help to change my bed. Food is OK. Please let one of the manager to sleep on this 4011 bed for a night and send a report How painful ? Hope Management in the future will listen to Customers / Guest Booking request / Treat every one same way European high floors :-) good rooms with Box + mattress, but for me who paid West Jet vacation HIGH Price only mattress ? No fridge no ceiling fan / got bitten by mosquitos each night inside my room. This is not 4. 1/2 * stars hotel I rate may be 2. 5 *. Viva should lean a lots from RIU Hotel management. Restaurant entrance very kind Host Jesica / friendly cooks & waiters.

    A wonderful place for holiday

    Together with my wife I celebrate my birthday and the anniversary of our marriage at this resort were we enjoyed the hospitality for a period of three weeks during which we were amazed by the professionalism of the employees of all the restaurants and terraces of Viva Whindham Tangerine, the shows offered by the resort animation team that seem to have an inexhaustible source of energy and good mood. From the airport Ramon our tour guide demonstrate professionalism and a very good working Man ! I programmed my 3 restaurants/week where the food was delicious and very good looking with the help of Hector who was very friendly and helpful ! I think the Animation team is the best in the entire Dominican Republic. Nicol, Jennifer, Ilka, Rosemarie, Giada, Melina, Maaike, El Baby, El Chamo, Michael Marcos - special person are only and all others. We liked the contrast between Nicol's gentleness and energy through voice and dance. Jennifer is a very pleasant, respectful and friendly soul. She is a professional in the art of dance and the activities in the resort. Michael Marcos is a very funny, attentive, respectful, and responsible soul. Giada is a professional in the activities and involved in the good things. She is very pleased to be involved in the activities and it is a pleasure to talk to her about anything. Ilka is extremely pleasant, smart, funny, involved to teach you new dance steps and to make sure you are in a state of well-being. Melina is a real pleasure to hear her voice and see her dancing! Maaike is creative, have a wonderful smiling face and very correct person. All the girls and boys of the resort are very well-behaved, and I saw them politely rejecting with the smile on the lips the inappropriate advances of too persistent tourists. The entire animation team contributes to the good mood of tourists through programs and games played during the day and evening. We enjoyed the costumes, the choreography of the theater programs and the thematic evenings on the terrace for the maintenance of the good mood! Here you can learn the dance steps: bachata, merengue, salsa. You can participate in Zumba, fitness in water, morning streching and various games like darts, bingo, bocha, and lots of fun crazy games. I enjoyed the water sports with Leo: kayak, catamaran, board, and the guys who take care of the safety and training before sending you on the water alone or with them is an excellent one. It's a real pleasure to look out of terraces, restaurants, loungers, water beauty and tens of kite surfing that are on the water and give you the most enjoyable sense of disconnection. The food was very good and tasty. The best "good morning" heard is from Jessica at the main restaurant ! All others employees from restaurants and bars are very friendly and good working people ! Raysa , prepare for us the best cocktails and drinks in the entire holiday. All is very well maintained in restaurants and where the food is ! I was pleasantly surprised by the safety offered by the people employed to ensure the guard and security of the resort's tourists! Congratulations to the chef because the food was very good, tasty, good looking and good variety . Thanks to Estefany Riviera and others for good working in main restaurant. The best "good morning" heard in my life is from Jessica at the main restaurant ! Congratulations to all !!!

    Small resort with a BIG personality!!

    3 years ago my husband and I went in on a Viva membership package with our mom n dad. Our home resort is in the Bahamas and we're in love with the place so we had decided, why not be members? This is our first visit to Viva Tangerine. We arrived May 18th and stayed through the 25th. Our first impression was that it is beautiful, but very small. We honestly didn't expect much... we were so wrong! Jesica... what can we say? You're such a beautiful person inside and out. You made us feel totally at home, and so happy to see you every day. We were sad to have to say goodbye when we left. Much love to you. You will go far and can do anything at all... reach for the stars! Franklin... even though your impersonations of Jesica fell short (hahaha!) you were absolutely amazing to us the entire week. Thank you for all the little things you did to make our stay so enjoyable. You really went out of your way, and we appreciate you! Nicolas... you always went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed at every meal... even running over to the bar to grab me a cappuccino in the morning. You're the best! Other folks we loved in the dining area were the beautiful Isabelle, Anyi, Cipriano, Estafani, Neris, and I'm sure others that I'm missing. The animation staff was so fun and kept things interesting throughout the day... bocce on the beach... yoga type stretching in the morning... latin dance lessons... zumba. Blank Panter... HEY! And Jennifer... thanks for teaching me some dance moves! Also, our rooms were always clean and our housekeeper always made fun decorations with our linens and sometimes included fresh flowers. I never got her name, but she was amazing! I'd like to say the same for the maintenance staff. We had a couple small issues, and they were ON IT... they fixed them within minutes of us addressing them. That's service!!! What we loved the most was the beach. It was gorgeous and the swim area was sand forever... so easy to walk out and play in the waves without worry of rocks or reef. Since there's no reef, there's no snorkling off the beach which is a bummer, but we had so much fun in the waves it didn't matter! Next time we come back the hubs intends on taking some kite surfing lessons! With all the bad press going on about the DR in the US news lately, I wanted to add that we felt 100% cared for and safe on the resort and even off resort during excursions. The resort may be small... but the people are awesome. Take the time to get to know them and they'll make your stay absolutely wonderful! We'll be back for sure!

    Third stay at Viva tangerine in one year!!

    This is my 4th stay at Viva Wyndham tangerine. I first came here 5 years ago and loved it. I came back in June 2018 and October 2018 and now June 2019. This is an excellent resort. The rooms and grounds are beautiful. The only complaint I have about the rooms is there is no refrigerator. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is great! I am disappointed this trip because there is no more pool party or beach party and also there is a very nice Disco here in the resort but none of the guests use it now. When I came here before, the animation team was always allowed to go to the Disco for 1 hour once the night time show was over in the theatre. Usually around 11:30pm they would get all the guests to go to the Disco to dance and have fun but now they are not allowed to do that anymore. These things are part of what the guests are coming here for and now it is disappointing not to have this anymore. I think there is a new manager in the resort that has made these changes but in my opinion, it is not good changes. I still love viva tangerine but maybe I will try another resort next time.
