We were at Vista Sol for two weeks, Sep. 30 - Oct. 14 and had a wonderful time. We had read many negatives online but honestly I don't really know what these people have to gripe about. For the money we paid, $2350 for two for two weeks including our insurance (being over 65 it is always expensive). We enjoyed... More

I booked a trip with vacation express July 21-26th 2014. The hotel of choice was Vista Sol Punta Cana/flight united. While the flight and airport transfer were great the hotel was not! This hotel reminded me of a retirement home and not a good one. The standards were not sanitary and comfortably accommodating in food or board. During this time... More

So I decided to take my first solo trip to the Dominican! Like an idiot, I booked the hotel first and then decided to read the reviews. I was totally freaked out when I read how much the rooms sucked, bad service, ect. But when I got there it was the complete opposite! Service was awesome, rooms were great, beach... More

Our family spend 7 days days at the Vista Sol Punta Cana on Christmas week 2013. Well the service was super, I mean these people really do their utmost to entertain you and accommodate you. The food was OK, nothing really fancy but it had a good taste. Their breakfast was varied and consisted of the usual fruits and pastries... More

I have gone to many resorts in Punta Cana. The food is great at all the restaurants at Vista Sol and the buffet is as good as the 5 star places in Punta Cana. The rooms are very clean and the people at the hotel are great also. Even when I stayed at the 5 star hotel, I had to... More

I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews on here but I went with an open mind...not everyone can be pleased after all. We arrived at noon on August 30th '14. Our room would not be ready until 3PM which was kind of a pain but luckily we packed bathing suits in our carry ons. We enjoyed... More

I never thought food on vacation was that big of a deal until I went somewhere where we couldn't eat the food. It was all inclusive for 7 nights and 8 days. My wife and I actually lost weight on this vacation. We only ate fruit, French fries, and salad. By day 5 we had to walk the long way... More

The resort was just ok. The food and alcohol are not good. The whole time you're at the beach people are coming up to you trying to sell their products or services. Not relaxing. The massage girls come up to you and try to give you 5 minute massages for free and just start touching you. The room was ok... More
