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.
We stayed here 09/02-09/06 and were very happy with our accommodations. We were a little leery about the negative reviews but don't let that deter you from coming to this resort. We were in comfort room #4111 and it was just like the photos posted by the management. The air conditioning worked really well, the shower did leak water but you just need to put some towels down and that will take care of the problem. Housekeeping was fantastic, no complaints, rooms were always very clean, had enough towels and bottled water. They give you a bottle of rum, 2 beers, 2 sodas, and 2 large bottled waters in the mini fridge plus extra bottles of water in the bathroom and main room. Beds were firm but comfortable for us, we did not mind. Had a nice balcony to enjoy the fresh air in the morning and evenings. Make sure you bring mosquito repellent they come out when the sun goes down.The front desk, staff and management were awesome! Always friendly and willing to help or answer questions, never came across anyone that was rude. Alex with Sunwing was our agent who assisted us with booking our excursions....you will want to try the Catamaran Party Boat and Monkey Land, both were so much FUN!The buffet and ala carte restaurants weren't great but there is enough variety to keep you satisfied. The fruit was always good, had the best mangoes. We did enjoy the peacocks coming thru to greet us as we sat in the buffet...the chicks are adorable! Had no issues with service at any of the eateries, they do their best to take care of your needs. The buffet is self-serve for food and drinks, servers do come by to check on your beverages for refills. The resort and beach are beautiful! I cannot say enough how well the grounds are maintained. The main pool with swim-up bar was very nice. There are 2 other pools but we did not use them. The drinks were ok, definitely not top shelf liquor but it's all you can drink so no complaints. Try the Mamajuana and the Sangria...very tasty! The beach has plenty of shade and loungers and the stretch of beach at this resort is the best by far of any resort in that area, the water is the prettiest shade of turquoise. There are locals selling their wares but a polite no thank you and they will go on their way. If you walk to the left on the beach you will come across shops, restaurants and bars, really cool! We had a memorable time here and will come again, great first trip to the Dominican Republic....thank you for your warm hospitality Vista Sol!! Muchas Gracis!
Beautiful resort, beach is nice but we went in sea weed season so it could be nicer (not the resort's fault). Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms a little dated but comfortable enough. Great value!! We were there during hurricane Irma and were well taken care of!!
My partners 1st time to Caribbean but not mine and I have been to Punta Cana about 10 years ago but changed massively for the better.Went out to Malls nice but quite pricey.Went to Coco Bongo nightclub. Amazing but £194 for 2 people a lot of money. Got to be done though. Hotel was nice n clean, boring at night time. Show was a bit like Butlins but not as much fun. Needs livening up a bit.Nightclub ok but empty.Food nice but bit monotonous after a week. Staff all excellent very friendly Animation team all good fun and the best time of all was the fun time at 16.00 hours everyday around the pool.Rooms smelt musty on arrival but soon went off. Very clean and served the purpose.We had hurricane whilst there and you couldn't ask for anything else from the staff & management all excellent.The hurricane didn't spoil our holiday we were lucky no problems or delays.Will return to Punta Cana but don't think I would go to hotel again.The beach is amazing.Only negative is the evening everything else spot on
The facility was beautiful and always clean. Service was wonderful and always with a smile. Wednesday into Thursday high winds and rain from Hurricane Irma and around noon Thursday rain stopped by 5pm the grounds looks like nothing happened. Very Hard Workers.
The hotel overall was great. We are international travelers and can "adapt" to many things that may be customary for non-US locations. We had a few issues getting towels as they ran out. We also wanted to purchase Wi-Fi, but it was "all purchased." Our room was nice, but they put our married friends in a room with two double beds with a non-working telephone (We were down there during Hurricane Irma's passing.) Their toilet ran, and she was eaten up by a slight mosquito infestation. (So was I, even though we were in another room, in another building. Oh Yea, we were down there together (as in we booked the vacation at the same time), and they split us up...which really did not bother me that much.The bathrooms were really nice! Rain shower and all!!Overall, I have stayed in worse traps right here in my home state. The hotel served its purpose, and we were fine with that.
