My cousin and myself came here for all inclusive for four nights. First of all the travel company never told us that it takes 3 hours from Santo Domingo to Punta Cana and it cost 175.00 US. Dont forget you have to pay 10 entrance fee at the airport. Anyways, while our room was fine, the pool and the beach,... More

The bad news... We just returned from a 5 day stay at Vista Sol resort. I'm sad to say we spent the first 48 hours moving from room to room to room to room to room before we found a place with a working shower and air conditioning unit. And this was after we upgraded to their best room! And... More

I have this place booked from Jan 1 to Jan 8 and they are non refundable. Reading the reviews it looks like it is impossible to get edible food in this place or a room with a working AC and a bath room that does not leak and is clean. I was expecting a basic resort and I know it... More

I was skeptical about choosing this hotel because half of the reviews I read were good and the other half were bad. Our room was ready when we arrived; however, they put my party in 10...building. Those two rooms were FAR from everything and the view from my room was of torn down buildings and trash. I asked to move... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there for 6 nights. We got there, our room was not ready, so they bumped us up to an ocean view superior room. It was nice. The beds weren't too comfortable, but the room was nice and cool. We had a nice little porch. It was perfect for two people. We had a couple of... More

I read the reviews and I expected a discount experience. What a lovely surprise! The beach is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the resort is nice! Yes, the rooms are older and there are maintenance issues. However, a leaking a/c in our room was immediately repaired as soon as we brought it to management's attention. The deal we got... More

I took a group of 22 adults with 12 rooms to the Vista Sol July 28 for 6 days. I have been to Punta Cana before but several of the group had not. When you have that many people and that many rooms there seems to always be some one with a problem. A/C seemed to be one of the... More

We stayed here for 6 nights. The resort grounds were well maintained, lots of activities, close to the beach and nice pools. Our room was clean, but they don't have washcloths at all here and when you shower, the water leaks all the way out into the room due to the half door on the tub and no shower curtain.... More

After reading the reviews not sure what to expect, however got a good last minute deal. Room was adequate for the amount of time spent there, as our shower leaked we did get moved to a renovated room which was very nice, lovely walk in shower. Resort is very pretty lots of mature vegetation, many blocks of rooms are undergoing... More

When we read the reviews about this hotel, we were very hesitant about our trip; however, once we got there we were very pleased with the resort. Even though the bathroom in our room definitely needed improvements, we noticed that they are doing extensive renovations around the resort. At the same time we were not worry because we were not...
