There was no windsurfing or bicycles onsite. there were no minibars in the rooms. I had to switch rooms 3 times because of a/c issues. The food was okay, and it is very noisy near the pool and bar

Check-in went well enough, and we were escorted to our room. We walked in and immediately were disappointed. The room was institutional. White, no decor, nothing inviting. There is no mini fridge, no dressers to unpack, the bed is rock solid, blankets are not king size (on a King size bed) tiny decorative pillows, not even standard size, and all you can hear is a pipe running somewhere. We were told that locals aren’t allowed in the resort, but found out quickly that they are allowed on the beach, which means the second you step out there they are pushing their merchandise on you, usually a no thank you is enough but every single day they ask if today you’ll buy. I stayed mostly in the pool area because of it. Within the resort they push picture packages, excursions, etc on you, nonstop. On the last 2 days they had vendors in the resort so that to get to dinner you had to walk by them and have them beg you to look and buy. I understand it’s their livelihood but I just want to get to dinner. The food is nothing exciting. The most concerning thing is the temperature- everything is Luke warm. Hot food items are luke warm, cold items are luke warm. I didn’t eat any meat because of this. You can’t drink the water from the tap so you need bottled water, which you have to buy (only 1 complimentary bottle per day) and they yell at you for trying to refill them from the filtered dispenser in the main area.

Regarding the Viva Wyndham Tangerine resort in Puerto Plata Dominican Republic. In conclusion, I would not come back there again. There are definitely good features, but overall not pleasant. The good features are the beach the activities on the beach, plenty of chairs and shade or sun. the pool the activities around the pool are all great. The rooms are not as presented on their website, they are much plainer and not decorated at all. There are few electrical outlets and no charging ports. The bathroom has no shelf space to put any of your toiletries. The toilet and the toilet paper holder are in conflict, when sitting on the toilet you can't unroll the toilet paper. The shower leaks water from the shower stall onto the bathroom floor and out the bathroom door. The air conditioning had a musty odor and was very loud. If you enjoy walking around a local shopping area, there is none. Get your shower early..during prime times our unit would run out of hot water. Very unusual dinner reservation requirements, must be made at the service desk between 9am-3pm for 2 of the 3 restaurants. The wait staff was very courteous and clean but not very accommodating. If you needed something for your room you had to ask several times for it. Our room did not come with a coffee pot, we ask for one and it was provided, it was in poor condition. We had to ask every day for more coffee and bottled water to make our coffee. With all this said we would not come back again.

Was unable to invite any outside guest to my room, no lobster meal served and shrimp was too small to enjoy. Felt like I was in a all-inclusive self-contained yard prison. had to rent another hotel in Sosua in order to enjoy company.

Not the Wyndham you expect

Pros: Staff super friendly and helpful. Beach onsite nice and convenient.
Cons: Open up free wi-fi during emergencies. No cheap way to contact Travelocity or Jet Blue prior to Hurricane Maria.
Location: Blue Lagoon excursion fun. Nothing nearby within walking distance. Went to neighborhood church on Sunday. Knowing Spanish critical if you go into town
This is not the USA version of Wyndham we expected. It was a timeshare resort that Wyndham bought 10 years ago. The resort is 30 or so years old. Maintenance was minimal. We arrived late and missed one day of our stay. The staff was phenomenal, but limited in what they could do to accommodate problems. One of the four rooms booked required a room change four times in six days due to being locked out of room, water leaking into room from shower (thankfully not the toilet), upgrade to oceanview room that was used for one day before moving inland for Hurricane Maria, then home. Ants were prevalent from vegetation nearby. Small blue crabs were cute and loved the same vegetation. Another room leaked shower water and moved into another room. Pictures on the website may have been in a newer building for owners.The majority were old, comfortable, and seemingly clean rooms nothing like the pictures. The beach was severely eroded by Hurricane Irma passing by - José and Maria, too. Still an enjoyable vacation largely in part due to staff, not surroundings. Unlock your phones for international reception and if you have a hotspot, great. 2G wi-fi free only in the lobby and for sale daily or weekly elsewhere in the resort. No computers available to check into flights or pre-purchase bag fees. Extra $5 per bag for Dominican Republic taxes if you don't do it online prior to leaving. We took $100 each in one-dollar bills for tips to staff which was greatly appreciated by all. Spanish helpful.

Nice if inclusive participation is your game

Pros: Justin James live music. Only 1 night out of 7 sadly.
Cons: VIP Club pestering sucks!!!
Location: Don't ask Guest Services. If it's not one of their tours they know nothing
We tend to be more independent and not participatory. If you like group activities and hanging on property then this place is OK. If you like, Zumba, Aqua aerobics and loud poolside speakers playing Caribbean disco then this place is for you. If you want your own place with peace and quiet then it is not. Food was OK. Tip the bartenders a little for better glasses rather than the 8.5 oz. little plastic cups. I didn't like the constant pestering to attend the VIP Club (timeshare-like) presentation. We didn't attend! Typical beach vendors just outside the property but that's to be expected.

Ideally situated for kiteboarding

Pros: The proximity of the beach and the food
Cons: Wireless access
Location: A bit outside of the village. But right on the kiteboarding spot
Viva Tangerine is ideally situated for whom want to dedicate his vacation to kiteboarding as is right on the spot, the best location on the beach that is always windy that also makes the place cooler in summer. The food is excellent and healthy. My only reservation is that the wireless is not included and is quite expensive.

This was ok, I've been to better!

The picture of the room that on the website must be only on one side of the resort because that not the type of room I stay in. The food is ok & I had one issue getting the staff to replace a broken iron it took hours, but it was finally brought to me by the manager, his customers service was on point from start to end.

Pitiful

Was just going for a 2 day jaunt to the north coast.  Went here because relatives were going.  Food was awful, facilities were run down, nothing to do (especially with kids, but even without), service/staff was nearly non-existent.  There are so many better choices, and a lot are much cheaper.  Checkin/Checkout were also painful; front desk staff was especially rude at checkout.

Don't stay here!

We were only here for 3 nights and had to visit the front desk SEVERAL times due to no hot water, not enough towels & bed linens that looked as though someone had rolled in them. You stay here & then they convince you to "see" another resort (which is 5 star) to try to sell you time share type pkg. Trust me, when you see the other resort you REALLY don't want to go back to this place. It has no ambiance, no atmosphere, the food is mediocre. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone who travels frequently & is accustomed to at least getting clean towels in their room (more than 1 set). I was very disappointed & when I complained they didn't even try to make it up to me in any way, shape or form!
