My wife and I joined other family member at the VIK in early July. I found the pool area, food, and room to be very good. The food service for the pool area was good and the general makeup of the entire resort was very pleasant. We had some troubles with our door lock but Leonardo the Bell captain and... More

Let's start off with the goods...The actual hotel itself was wonderful, very secluded from the main roads...the staff was very friendly, the beach was great, the free amenities they offered was nice, the food wasn't bad, the nightly entertainment was very entertaining, always something to do and watch, the bars kept you drinking all night. Now the bad parts...the beds... More

Spent two weeks at VIK in July. Yes: - there is seaweed. This is the ocean after all! The amount of seaweed varies depending on what's happening at sea and it affects ALL the resorts; - rooms are disappointing (a few are renovated at this time; - beds are firm, and so are the pillows; - you need to save...

I called prior to our visit and requested building 4 or 5 due to other reviews I had read. The man wasn't very pleasant I spoke with. When we arrived we were put in building 1 and our room wasn't ready yet. It wasn't a problem because we got a drink at the bar and walked around a little. The... More

Both my husband and I agree that if you can get past the front desk, you will be in for a very lovely vacation. The Dominican people are friendly, open and warm and for this reason we couldn't understand the attitude of the front desk staff -- an attitude of indifference. Having arrived at the hotel at 2:00, we finally... More

I stayed here in June on 2013 for 7 nights and had a great time. I booked through Apple vacations and got a great all inclusive deal for 2 people. I definitely recommend this for anyone looking to go to a beautiful resort in Punta Cana for a great price! Keep your eyes out for the stellar deals! The room... More

I was very pleased with the overall experience the food was great,room was not as fancy as higher end resorts but clean and nice. My room was very close to pool and ocean. It... More

I stayed at VIK Arena Blanca for 11 days (June 30- July11) and I had nothing to complain about. After reading some negative reviews I just wondered: are we talking about the same hotel? What are some guests expectations? It's a modest 4 star hotel and people want to be pampered. Rooms: modest, a little outdated but very clean and... More
