Vista Sol Punta Cana
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionA decent resort for those looking for great value. While the quality and array of amenities aren't as comparable to those of other luxury resorts, you do get good value in what you pay for. There are decent options with regards to food and beverages. However, if you are looking for a place that offers better choice and quality, it's best to look at other options.
Location: On Cortecito Beach, 60 minute drive to the nearest town of Higuey, 20 minutes from the airport.
The service was really bad. Francis was the best and most welcoming when we got to the resort! But after that unfortunately it was down hill from there. Everyone from the entertainment team was really good especially Edily! She was so sweet!
My wife and I just returned 3 days ago from a week at Vista Sol for our Honeymoon. I paid extra for a "sea view" room and the room was on the first floor, so while I could see the ocean, it wasn't very well as there was many things between us and the ocean. The food at the buffet was the same every single day. The staff in the buffet was horrendously rude, didn't clear/reset tables often so we had to almost every meal SEARCH for a table. The power went out a lot while we were there so no a/c in the room, no running water, no blended drinks. The drinks were literally different at every bar. You could order the same drink in the lobby as you did at the pool bar and get an entirely different drink-with only one thing in common--insane amounts of sugar. The Mexican/Italian/Gourmet restaurants were the only good food we had all week. The pool closed at 7pm oddly which seemed super early. The only pool that was remotely clean was the main one. You can't relax on the beach because you'd have people trying to sell you something the entire time. The tour salesmen would try and get you anywhere else on the resort at all times. Room smelled horrible of smoke. Shows/latenight were at 9:30 and everything closed at 5-7 so if you don't plan on sitting around doing nothing or drinking in those hours between then and 9:30 you'll find it hard to even stay awake to make it to the shows/disco. We were ready to leave by day 3/4. Worst of all: the bacterial infection that I got/still have from the food/drinks on the resort. Didn't drink a drop of tap water, drank tons of bottled water, only ate on resort and yet here I am on day 9 of extreme diarrhea. I'd guess the birds I watched openly eating from the fruit at the buffet on multiple occasions could have contributed. Also, don't expect any channels on the TV to work in English except the weather channel. Our first AND LAST time ever visiting the Dominican. If 0/5 was a ranking-Vista Sol would have easily earned it on our trip. AVOID.
I just got back from this resort and I must say I really enjoyed it. It is a good 4* definitely not luxury so don't expect modern and luxury resort. That being said I loved everyday I spent there. Food was ok as I found something that I liked each day. I paid $800 for a week all inclusive. Best thing about this resort is the entertainment team. Very fun group with cool activities. Juan and Edily also Wellington and Fernando from the Paddle fitness activities. There are bars within short distances of each other which is amazing as you don't have to ever wait for a drink. Always found beds by the beach and beach was clean also. I would definitely recommend this place if you want to relax and have fun. Not meant to be a party resort which I really liked as the people were mature. Free internet is only available in one location and speed is really slow. Renting a Safe costs $10 for the week.
The beautiful beaches are the best I have seen, The food has a lot to be desired. The mattresses are as hard as a box spring. The bartenders are very friendly and the drinks are great! So if food and sleep is important to you then this is not the place for you.
Just came back from vista sol yesterday, had an amazing stay for my first time in Dominican! The staff was incredibly nice and helpful! They all do an amazing job! If you're younger and looking for a party resort, this is not it. My friend and I were actually looking for a resort that would have other younger people looking to have fun, but there was only a couple of other groups there that were like that. That being said it was still a great time!
