The people really make this place awesome!

I've stayed here twice now, and the hospitality is awesome! Every person there greets you with a smile and "hola!" Rooms are nice, clean, and air-conditioned. Food is decent. The evening entertainment is fun. The Michael Jackson show was awesome - fantastic dancers. Pools are great. Open bars are great. Lots of ways to stay entertained if you never leave the resort, or ask the concierge to help schedule excursions. Either way you will have a great stay. More>

Great time at the VIK

The resort met my expectations. But it was the staff that made my stay so nice!!! Response times to any concerns I had were almost immediate. Dining was enjoyable and again it was because of the attentiveness of the staff that myself and friends had great experiences. A big thank you to everyone at the resort for helping create many happy memories during my stay. ***One small caveat is that the WiFi is only available in the main reception area. This is NOT a criticism but good to know up front so you can plan around it. Remember this is the R. D. More>

Lots of fun in the sun at Vik hotel cayenne beach

Shared a week at all inclusive VIK in Punta Cana. Had a wonderful time. Food was great Staff was amazing and the weather was awesome. Was a little worried after reading some reviews but figured with such a great price I couldn't go wrong. I was right! The only negative was my room did have a musty odor but I think this is common in tropical locals. The theatrical staff work non stop to ensure your vacation is fun. More>

Fun but inefficient

There is not a variety of food in the buffet and other restaurants. The food in the Italian restaurant doesn't match Italian food. Very disappointed that the WiFi doesn't work so good. The shows at night are very entertaining and enjoyable to watch. They should also have specific areas on where to smoke and where not to smoke. The animation staff are the nicest and funnest part about going to VIK. there are many activities for kids and even the adults. More>

A Great Place!

As others have said, The Cayena part of the VIK Hotel is separate, but you you can use all of the restaurants and facilities of the big VIK hotel. The Cayena is right on the beach, very quiet, with it's only breakfast and lunch restaurant, pool and beach. It's heaven! The food is good all over the resort, the people who work there are very friendly and the beach is wonderful! My only complaint is that the room is dated and damp. It is also very noisy. You can hear your neighbors as if they are right in the same room. Ask for a non-adjoining room. They spray some perfume in the room which I found nauseating, so you may want to tell them not to do that. Our room got wifi, but it's weak in the room. Best if used right on the beach! There are miles and miles of beach to walk on and enjoy. Try a Bananamama at the bar, and also, the bartender will make wonderful smoothies if you'd like. Never a line at the omelet bar (Thank you Oscar the great omelet chef) and all of the girls in reception (Melanie, Melanie and Nikki), couldn't be nicer. Highly recommend this place! More>
