The resort was excellent for us because we had two kids with us, ages 12 and 15. The size was good. We were able to easily and quickly access all areas. The pools were large and clean. The beach area was fabulous. Large, clean, plenty of chairs. Our room was two story with a balcony overlooking the beach. It had... More

There are very mixed reviews about this place on this site, so we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived. Overall: It was good. Nothing amazing, but good. Knowing now what to expect, I would stay here again for the price. Food: The food was the worst part of the resort, to me. The a la carte restaurants (we... More

Yes, I understand the room was cheap on Expedia, but customer service goes a long ways to accommodate travelers with a big group. I traveled with 9 people. Kids and Adults. When landing and before you hit immigration, you need to pay $10 tourism fee. No vans large enough to fit our crowd. Took two vans for $35 each. They... More

We were first placed in the 4000 units.. Old, mildew smelling, sheets smelt rancid not fresh, air conditioning never worked. We were finally moved after complaining and were given rooms in the 6000 building much better newer building and air worked (most of the time) pool/bar front. All around customer service was horrible with just a handful of exceptions and... More

First of all the hotel was great. My husband and I wanted to go on a little getaway for our 26th wedding anniversary so we got here on Wed., July 9 and are leaving Mon., July 14. We upgraded to VIP service, which has it pros and cons. Pros: Awesome room. We loved it. It was spacious and so clean.... More

We had a group of 7 stay at Vista Sol from July 2-7, 2014. With the exception of the beach and grounds, our experience was very poor. Service- overall very rude and oblivious. The front desk staff was by far the worst, the customer is obviously an inconvenience to the front desk staff. With the exception of Domingo at the... More

This resort is great...I loved every minute of it! My sister and I was there from June 26 to July 1st. WE HAD A BALL!! The room was nice and spacious. It could use a little upgrading but it was clean and comfortable. The grounds was immaculate, nice common area, several restaurants, three pools, the staff was friendly and the... More

We stayed in the 7000 building at this hotel from 6/30-7/6 for our honeymoon; it was the first time in the Dominican for both of us. Overall we were very pleased with the quality and service that the resort provided and I would say that it exceeded our expectations based on the reviews that we read prior to staying at... More

We just came back last night. We were very reluctant to come here, after reading so many horror stories and mixed reviews. I can honestly say that other than another family that arrived during our stay, none of the previous negative stories repeated. When we arrived it took such a long time for them to check us in, as the... More

Stayed here as a singles trip on June 23rd through July 1st 2014. Keep in mind this was our first all inclusive experience and we can't compare this trip to another. We purchased a Hotwire express deal for a 3.5 star and payed roughly $94 a night after taxes. For $94 a day for two people, we knew not to... More
