Wyndham Resorts Dominican Republic

Pros

  • A range of tours and excursions (for a fee)
  • Access to some of the sister property's amenities (for a fee)
  • Morning espresso and croissants on a pretty terrace
  • Convenience store and shops on-site
  • Free Wi-Fi in the lobby

Cons

  • Overall the resort is showing wear and tear
  • Expect crowds, especially at the beach, main bar, and buffet
  • There's typically a wait to get a drink and pours are small
  • Occasionally the resort is overbooked
  • Rooms closest to the lobby might experience late-night noise from the entertainment
  • Wi-Fi throughout the resort comes with a daily fee

Bottom Line

This family-friendly, 613-room all-inclusive resort has a mostly European clientele. Basic rooms have received a slight refresh (no more patterned bedspreads), and the limited all-inclusive amenities help keep prices low. Three pools, trapeze lessons, and tennis are available, but most guests flock to the beach. For drinks, guests will have to take turns standing in line to get small pours in plastic cups, and repeat the process until the (beautiful) sunset. Food is not a highlight: there’s a limit on a la carte reservations, and the main buffet seems to have a crowd at all times. Overall, though, this is an affordable choice for families. Romantics should consider the VIP upgrade.

Scene

A lively crowd of mostly Europeans and their families

Dominicus Beach is larger and more affordable than its sister resort next door, the Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace. Taxi drivers may occasionally drop guests off at the wrong lobby, but porters are on hand to assist if that happens (the two lobbies are separated by a pretty walking path). The Dominicus Beach lobby has a few lounge areas that are occupied by people trying to get on Wi-Fi. A bustling guest services desk can help with problems and excursions, and there are also public bathrooms (where guests may choose to dig through their suitcases for swimwear before an evening flight home). The resort caters to large groups from Italy, France and other European destinations, and overbookings are possible, so specified room types might change.

This lobby area is a short walk to a currency exchange, convenience store, small spa, spacious fitness center, tennis courts, and business center (where guests can purchase in-room Wi-Fi). Evening entertainment happens in the theater, which has bleacher seats like those in a high-school auditorium.
