My wife and I had a great time at VIK Hotel. Didn't start off that was as the hotel was oversold when we got there and we were put in the VIP hotel for a night. The VIP room needs work, especially the furniture (old worn down couch) and the shower, which consisted of a plastic curtain that did not... More

My vacation budget was delightfully rewarded when a superb deal popped up for the Vik Arena Blanca. This would be a repeat visit, so I knew what to expect, and was quite excited about being able to return to this wonderful resort, especially when getting more days at a better price than last time. There are no complaints about getting... More

My best friend and I (both in our 20s) went to VIK Blanca as a graduation present to ourselves. Before the trip, reading these reviews, we were nervous for the quality and state of the resort. Upon arriving we noticed the detail and amazing scenery that the resort has to offer. We were given the updated room in building 3... More

My husband and I vacationed at the VIK in mid April. We had a great vacation and loved the friendliness of the staff, the great food, beautiful pools, stunning ocean/beach, tropical grounds, etc. Unfortunately we also have to agree with some of the comments by other reviewers regarding how rude and ignorant some of the tourists are, especially in not...

As soon as we arrived we encountered problems. The desk clerks were rude and unprofessional. They didn't care about the 3pm check in times and had customers sitting around waiting for them as they scrambled to do whatever it was they were doing. When asked about check in the guest services manager said they had until 4pm to check us... More

My husband and I stayed at the VIK from 4/30 to 5/7/2015 and I must say we were very pleasantly surprised to find it as nice as it was and so much better than some of the reviews would have us believe. We arrived at around 2 PM, check in was a breeze, our room was ready promptly at 3... More

My husband and I just returned from VIK Arena Blanca and were very impressed! We have been to the DR four times, and have stayed at resorts that were much more expensive than VIK, and we felt this resort was just as nice. It is quieter, smaller, and not a lot of "extras" but still a lot of " bang... More

We just got back from a week long stay. This was our third trip to the D.R. We chose this resort because it was smaller than most, which we like. Plus we were really watching our budget. The resort was nice although very run down. We upgraded to an ocean front room (bldg 5) we had a fabulous view, but... More

Let me start with the positives. The grounds are very pretty and constantly being "groomed". Although more than adequate and well maintained, a smaller sized pool, but not a problem as I came for the beautiful beach and ocean. Staff, grounds keepers, activity coordinators, bartenders (Pedro at beach bar was always smiling), restaurant staff are all very pleasant and friendly.... More
