Update on Resorts in Playa Dorada Complex.

The Viva Wyndham is no more as it has changed its name to Lifestyles Golden Beach Resort all the new signage has been put into place. Lifestyles has leased the property with an option to buy at a later date.

There is also a rumour that the Allegro Puerto Plata is being sold but is staying open under new management, maybe those refurbs I recently heard about will be taking place whilst it is still open.

Will keep you updated with any new situations when and where it arises.

Angie.

No ChrisBnj they are two different resorts the one in Cabarete is the Tangarine as you have rightly stated then the other one that I have mentioned above was called Viva Wyndham Playa Dorada which closed on the August 30th last year and is now reopening under the new name of Lifestyles Golden Beach Resort .

Resorts in POP are bought and sold and change names so often it's next to impossible to keep them straight.

Another variation of the name for the old Viva Wyndham Playa Dorada: The Golden Sand Vacation Club.

Someone on another forum saw the sign on Easter weekend.

Here are the latest photos that I have been sent today of the new Lifestyles in the links below..

The actual name is Golden Sand Golf and Beach Resort, with extra signage stating that its A Lifestyles Holiday Vacation Club Resort.

Do you have a phone number for golden sand golf and beach resort. I have a timeshare with them and have been unable to get in contact.

Thank you
