We booked this hotel through Expedia. It was Corpus Christi weekend here in the Dominican Republic so we decided to take the kids away for a few days. Expedia has a program where they won't tell you the hotel until after you book it, but doing so you get a nice discount. Once we found out and we read the...

We had a wonderful week. The resort is beautiful. We had great service all week. Our boys are 11 and 13 and were entertained with all the things to do on the resort. The beach has a lot of trees so there is always a place to sit in the shade. Great family vacation. Staff was friendly.

We came back to Bavaro area of Dominican Republic after 12 years (different hotel) and I have to say that it was the first time when we decided to go to exactly the same place, because we recall our first holiday in DR as the best one. Therefore our expectation from the hotel itself and surrounding were quite high. Finally...

If you're someone that checks the reviews before booking...you'll recall my review of this property back in November 2014. Our first visit wasn't the best experience, however, we decided to give them a second chance. As promised by the management, the property has made a complete 180 degree turn for the best! Entry to the property remains secure (great). When...

Great trip. The room was average, but the customer service was excellent. Good entertainment. Every night there was a different show. The gym was very outdated, so if fitness is important to you as you vacation prepare to go off site or do something that does not require a gym. There are good quality aerobics classes at the hotel.

This truly was the worst vacation of my life (and I traveled extensively in my 50 years of age). We asked for an ocean view room... and we had it. But there is absolutely no warning that oceanview room meant three beachfront parties in a row that go from 10 pm until 2 am. The music played is very loud...

We have travelled extensively and this was our worst resort experience. First, it was a slow process to check in. When we finally got to our room, it was smelly and moldy, the a/c was broken with water dripping all over the floor and the toilet did not work. Hence, we had to change room, which took over an hour....

The location and the lay-out of the hotel is such that it possesses an ample beach that offers one of the largest amount of square meters per guest in the vicinity. The existing beach vegetation has been re-distributed to ensure adequate space for those wishing to enjoy sun or shadow. Together with the pristine beach and the transparent blue sea water our clients will find the relaxed atmosphere they are looking for. The beach is also ideally suited for long walks. Vista Sol Punta Cana has 471 rooms, the right size to be able to provide a personal service to our guests. Together with the colorful mature tropical gardens it offers two unique selling points when a hotel selection is to be made. Vista Sol Punta Cana is the perfect option for couples of all ages, honeymoons, romantic getaways or just to get away from it all and relax in peaceful tropical setting.
