The Bahia Estela by Viva Resorts has only one restaurant and serves buffet style for breakfast (from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.), lunch (from 12:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and dinner (from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.), with a different theme every evening : International, Oriental, French, Dominican, and gala (refined Italian cuisine). Organised once a week, the evening gala takes place around the swimming pool, by candle light. Located under a large, airy, straw-covered pergola near the beach and the swimming pool, the buffet can accommodate up to 200 people. A musical programme hosts guests at dinner in a jazz / piano bar. The dining hall houses a gourmet area, Viva Café, an alternative restaurant to those serving a la carte and dinner is by reservation, with 39 seats. An additional payment of $ 15 is requested. A snack bar offers light restaurant services around the swimming pool from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. You also have access to different restaurants serving a la carte at the neighbouring Viva Wyndham Samana hotel (the Mediterranean restaurant offers Italian specialties, and the Bamboo restaurant offers Asian specialities), but not its main buffet "Cocoa". Room service is available 24 hours a day and breakfast is served in bed for free.
