Having decided only 2 days prior, my boyfriend and I arrived at VIK and were pleasantly surprised. Check in was an absolute joy and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The renovated room (very clean thanks to our maid, Anita) was adequate but still needed final touches like more lighting and artwork. The bathroom door was a bit strange but a window in the door certainly ain't the end of the world!!!
Having walked about a third of Bavaro Beach in the past couple of yrs, VIK has one of the best stretches we've seen.
The resort grounds and pools are absolutely amazing, very well kept...extremely clean!!!
Being a fussy eater, I was pleased to find how good the food was not to mention the awesome selection of fantastic desserts. A la carte dining was was very enjoyable with no advanced reservations required. Having a rose presented to me at the A la carte on Valentine's night was a very special touch.
Hat's off to Felix at the beach bar, he's always smiling, singing and very helpful...staff was amazing at VIK.
Entertainment started with kids dancing and singing around 8:30pm then at 9:30 the show began. While we didn't take in every show we were blown away with the ones we did see. The Dominican people are very talented in everything they do.
We've been to the DR four times and staying at 5, 4 and 3 star resorts we have yet to be disappointed!!!!!!!!
Always remember things are different than home. A clean room, Sun, Beach & Rum always makes for a great vacation.
Next stops Arenas Doradas in Varadero, Cuba(March) followed by 2 wks at Dreams La Romana(April) Stay tuned for reviews!!!
