Wyndham To Remove All Viva Wyndham All Inclusive Properties On June 1st

Wyndham has announced that all Viva Wyndham properties will be removed from the rewards program on June 1st. This includes the following properties:

  • Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach
  • Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace
  • Viva Wyndham Tangerine
  • Viva Wyndham V Samaná
  • Viva Wyndham V Heavens
  • Viva Wyndham Maya
  • Viva Wyndham Azteca
  • Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach

A few important pieces to note:

  • All bookings made before June 1st (whether cash, points or cash & points) will be honored
  • Cash bookings made before June 1st will earn points, but you’ll need to contact Wyndham post stay to get the points to post

It will be interesting to see if these Viva properties move to another program or not. This is another big loss for Wyndham, especially after they only recently moved to new award pricing.

That sucks. At least there is some notice.

Viva Azteca was my redemption of the year. Great location, nice place, and decent food.

Wow 😮
With this change plus the 15K to 30K redemption change. Its time to close the Barclays Wyndham card and forget about this lousy hotel chain.

It’s a good thing we already stayed there! Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace all inclusive had amazing buffets! Abey

Hawaii properties are still 15k.

Have any experience with any of the Hawaii options? Recommendations? Any on or near any beaches or compelling locations? (Serious question — planning to be there in Dec. — have 100k to burn)

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I haven’t been able to find a Wyndham Hawaiian property with a beach. Are there any?

thanks for the news — bad as it really is. I concur re. the severe blow to Wyndham here…. We generally enjoyed four days at Azteca, at 15k, but likely will not see it as worth it for 30k. (It’s simply nowhere near being in the same class as the Hyatt all-inclusives, or even the remaining IHG aic’s….. Why not? Ok, fabulous beach, placid waters, nice buffets, if you can stand the miserably hot open air restaurants (esp. if you’re there in summer), few rooms with actual ocean fronts, or even views, suspect cheap alcohol used in drinks (google it), plus aging facilities and poor security (we had a crazed drunk so and so trying to pound his way into our room middle of the day — security all but ignored the incident)

Still, we liked the aic concept…. just really sad to see Wyndham drop them from the rewards program… Anticipate they’ll be selling them off..

I gotta say, even though it is bad news, I am impressed at how Wyndham has been giving ample time in their statements for people to plan accordingly. If only all companies and point systems were so transparent..

Glad for the advance notice! I booked my 3 nights at Viva Azteca for Feb 2020 as soon as I heard about the points price doubling. When they changed to 30k a night I no longer saw the value. Reader Escot summed it up fairly well. I have been there 3 times in the last 3 years and I love the beach and ocean there. I went there once in July and it is way to hot to try to eat at the buffet, even at breakfast I had sweat running down my back. A friend has a time share and said the Azteca is in their list of resorts.
