Shaped on the alluring white sands of Bávaro Beach, VIK Hotel Arena Blanca & Cayena Beach is sheltered by an intact coral reef and garlanded by coconut palm trees and lush tropical gardens. This charming and relaxing resort offers a cool, comfortable atmosphere, and plenty of exciting activities including a variety of non-motorized watersports, and tennis.

This little botique resort (only 47 suites, 3 floors, no elevator) was a home run. It is part of a larger resort next door where we could use their facilities but they could not use ours so it was somewhat exclusive. The rooms were a little outdated but who spends anytime in your room when in paradise. The meals & entertainment were great & the staff was very good & moved at the typical isand pace.

I went on this trip with my husband and my best friend to celebrate our birthday. This trip exceeded my expectations it was amazing in everyway. Upon arrival I felt extremely welcomed by the staff. Nikki and Ezekiel were very informative and Nikki arranged all of our activities and excursions accurately and was very patient and kind. The restaurant El Cano was great and the food was delicious all of the staff was extremely hardworking and friendly. Newton the bar tender was very good and made the best drinks. He was also very kind and made us feel like family. The bar tender by the pool tables Michael and Ruddy were very pleasant as well and worked very hard to keep us happy. The animation team was also the highlight of our trip. They kept us entertained with all the activities threw out the day and the shows at night. In particular Fabio Castro, Joel, Willin, and Carmen were the best. I could go on and on about how amazing our trip was we will definitely be returning soon. I recommend this trip to any and everyone. We didn't want to leave.

We just returned from a thoroughly delightful week at Cayena Beach Resort. The staff were very pleasant, willing to help and almost everyone spoke 4 or 5 languages. The room was very clean and comfortable. Back and front porches. The resort is right on the beach and this part of the resort is for Cayena guests only, so it is not crowded at all. The only problem is you have to get up first thing in the morning to reserve lounge chairs that have an umbrella. Cayena has its own restaurant and bar for breakfast and lunch. For dinner you have to go to one of the restaurants shared with Arena Blanca, the other part of the resort. The buffet has an enormous amount of food, something for everyone. The food was not gourment, but most of it was tasty. The Italian restaurant and Mexican restaurants probably had the best food. The meal at the international restaurant was disappointing and the servers were not very friendly. There were many activities you could participate in, but many of them at night were for the younger crowd. But if you went to do a lot of nothing but spend time on the beach or at the pool, like we did, that didn't matter. The spa was a bit run down. The property was laid out nicely, but the landscaping wasn't kept up and some of the rooms had signs on them that said out of order. There were no showers to use after you had your services, which I would have appreciated. The treatment itself was nicely done and the masseuse was very pleasant and did a lovely job. If you are looking for shops, there are only two on site -a boutique and gift shop. Prices are a little high. But if you walk down the beach past the neighboring resort there are shacks on the beach where local merchants sell their wares. You have to be comfortable bartering and then you can get some good deals. You can arrange excursions through the resort. We went on one excursion called Reef Explorer, which was a half day and was a more laid back trip, not a party boat, which we didn't want. They took you out on the water to an area that had a dock area with chaise lounges, a common area on pilings where the bar and snacks were. You could also just relax in chairs there or have a foot massage. There were also 4 tented areas where you could get a full 15-minute massage. Then you could snorkel, float on mats in the water,paddle surf, and swim with sting rays and sharks if you choose. It was really nice and a different type of relaxation. Met some really nice people from different parts of the world. Most of all the beach and water were exquisite. We missed the blizzard on the east coast while we were there! Overall and lovely experience and we came back relaxed and refreshed.
