This is by far my favorite resort of all the ones I have been to in the Caribbean. Large enough to offer many amenities and small enough to offer quiet relaxation. Cayena Beach has about 50 rooms-spacious bedrooms and a sitting room, all with a patio or balcony.We were assigned a third floor room, but were graciously given a first floor room,as my wife has bad knees.The essentials were all less than 50 yards from our room. Cayena guests have their own beach, pool, bar and restaurant. We also had access to the Arena Blanca's restaurants, bars, theater, tennis and shops.We felt that the food was superb at all the restaurants.(Food and drink were available almost all day somewhere in the resort). My wife, a college professor, was up early correcting papers. Coffee/breakfast was available at 5:30 AM.I had coffee at the beach and watched the sunrise every morning! Scores of things to eat at the buffet .Leonardo was the delightful cook at the omelet station for breakfasts.I always like to try different foods and all meals at the buffet offered so many delicious choices.I think I gained 10 pounds while I was there. Antonio and Newton at the pool bar were extremely gracious to all. I must add, that all the staff were very polite and helpful. After one of our outside excursions had been cancelled a tour desk staffer (Aristede?) went above and beyond to get us on another tour within minutes. He arranged a ride for us to catch up to a tour that was already 30 minutes into the countryside.For us, this was the best resort experience we have experienced. Definitely going back to stay again!

Just got back from VIK Cayena Beach. We spent our first night in a suite we didn't originally book. Had to wait till morning to speak to the reception regarding moving rooms. They were very helpful and pleasant regarding switching rooms. First room was very outdated, and smelled musty. The room they advertised was the one we booked. Beautifully updated. I enjoyed our stay. But would I go back? Probably not. Food was just mediocre. Nothing really bad to say, just too far to go, for an average vacation.

Great time

This is a great hotel at a cheap price. He food was ok and the staff were super nice!! Would recommend couples to stay at the VIK Cayena. Beach as great, some days there was a lot of seaweed but they cleaned it right up. The spot for VIP was great! Relaxing and quiet.
