I travelled to the Vik for two weeks with Thomas Cook. Check in was very smooth and quick, although no welcome drink was offered. My room as was as requested in block 5 with a sea and pool view, it was not one of the upgraded rooms, basic but spotlessly clean. In my two weeks there I didn't spot one bug, which I normally would have expected given the tropical climate.
There was plenty of choice in the restaurants, the chef stations were excellent, the food was freshly prepared and cooked. I can highly recommend the Italian restaurant, food and service were both very good.
I watched a couple of shows, which were very professional. The grounds were immaculate and I didn't have a problem with the drinks, they were not weak to me; if you want two shots you just need to ask them.
In hindsight, this is not an ideal hotel for singles, which is my fault, as I should have checked the reviews more closely before booking, There are a lot of different nationalities at the Vik, so unless you a multiligual, the opportunities for socialising are limited. The beach was fabulous and I ended up having a very relaxing holiday, but found myself in bed about 10 most nights, as it is definitely not the place for party animals. Overall, I had a nice holiday and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel, given some of more horrrendous reviews on here.
