VIP Cayena Beach area

I went to this resort thinking it would be filled with fun activities. However it was very quiet. We had to buy excursion packages to truly enjoy our time. The Hard Rock Hotel is a must see in DR. It has a club called ORO. I loved the beach and pool the best at the resort. The food was also very good as well. More>

Headed back to VIK this October 2016, can't wait! I highly recommend this resort as it's small, friendly and on a beautiful beach and the food is amazing! We joined the VIP membership and it's not like a timeshare, you can travel pretty much anytime you want and stay as many weeks as you like. If someone approaches you to tell you about becoming a VIP member, please take the time to listen because it is worth every penny... We love the people at this resort, Barbara and Melanie are very helpful in booking your stays.. You will meet wonderful people and feel like you are part of the family, not to mention the views from your room will blow you away... More>

Beautiful beach in a very old resort/hotel without internet service!!!

We stayed there in a vacation exchange for a week, this resort has the most beautiful beach, however, there is NO INTERNET SERVICE in your room, or In the main areas (you need to look around with your phone/computer, to look for signal), they keep changing passwords and saying they were "working on a better signal and coverage" but it was worthless. They close their lobby/office at 7pm and nobody will know about the new password or if there were any internet service at all. The rooms SERIOUSLY NEED A RENOVATION, the beds are old, the rooms are spacious but look from the 70's (like my kids said when we got there). The coffee maker and safe are honestly from 10 years ago, there is a very bad shower inside the tub, which looks like has not been deep cleaned in years with all the rust on it and please bring you own cleaning supplies, there was a day they did not have enough conditioner or shampoo for all the rooms (plus they were very low quality). The people don't seem to care about the service unless you tip them, except Joselyn from the pool restaurant and Newton from the pool bar which exceptional service and charisma are one of the highlights of the hotel/resort. They closed the pool at 7pm and THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH TOWELS for all the guests in the resort, you need to keep asking for towels and explain to the guy why you need more than one, they even ask you why you need more than one per person, (they do not put chair covers so you need to use an extra-one, unless you want to sit in a dirty old sunbed). Plus, they remove all the cushions from the pool and beach area around 5-6 pm so you literally have to go out of the pool/beach chairs by 6pm😠. Don't even try to go to the spa, the receptionist don't even care to show you around or explain any service, they are always "booked" but misteriously you don't see anybody coming in or out of the spa and the technicians are always at the beach looking for bookings or talking to each-other or the beach waiters. The gym is old, no ac only some old fans. The front desk from the main entrance are so busy that wait for a cab took us a 40 minutes wait, then we found out the cab drivers tip them, so they only call "their taxi friends" to do the services, because of the tips they pay them!!! I still can not believe how this hotel remains as an exhange for Interval Resorts, it seriously needs new owners or new managers since the beach is in a beautiful side of the island. More>

Punta Cana Vacation
Conrado Pacific... C, Chino Hills, California
Thu Aug 18 13:03:12 EDT 2016
Ideal place for a family vacation with pristine white sand beaches with clear Aqua blue Caribbean water literally just a few feet from your lounge areas under shady coconut palm trees. Rooms were comfortably spacious and clean. Can't say enough good things about the very helpfull and attentive staffs. The resort is big enough not to feel crowded and yet small enough to be intimate and feel safe. More>
