Not sure were all the people stayed with the bad reviews.But we had a great time there were 4 couples Checkin went smooth we stayed in building 3.The room was nice and clean Maid did a super job each day a little musty smell when we ran the AC but not bad.No hot water just luke warm but did not matter Bring face cloths and bar soap as there was only liqiud soap in shower and sink.Had a nice little sitting area outside room which was nice at the end of day.As far as the food goes we always found something to fill us i ate alot of fish and it was always good.At the breakfast buffet it was good and Leonarldo the omlette maker made a great omlette.At the Lunch and Dinner buffet there was always something good stir fry was the best.I liked the Italian resturant but disliked the Mexican Resturant but others did so it all depends on your likes.Every dayat noon they had brick oven pizza hamburgers french fries and Chicken Which i thought was great.Bring a insulated cup for the day and Solo cups for night it will save you alot of trips to the bar.Also dont forget to tip a dollar it makes a big differance
As far as the Staff goes i give them all an A+they were all very friendly and a smile and a Hola goes a long way But if you walk around grumpy i think you will get that right back.Most of them new alittle english and others new alot We made friends with alot of staff Thanks to Raffel,Ricardo and Felix They helped make a great vacation.....And if you see Isaih on the beach selling jewelery help him out he is a great guy and has some great jewlery as our wives will agree.Yes some of the vendors are agressive Just handle it with a no and a smile and walk away
I told them i was Mike No money and they laughed and walked away.It's all how you handle it.
As far as the beach goes OMG it was absolutlyBeautiful and the water was warm and the sand was like powder.Bring lotsa sunscreen.So do not listen to the negatives and go to the VIK with an open mind and a positive attitude and have a great vacation.We cannot wait till next year!!!!!!!
