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.
Vista sol is an immaculate resort from the grounds to the rooms. The food is delicious with a lot of variety with the different selections of restaurants. It's a perfect size place with a lot of room for everyone. We stayed in the swim up section which was the quiet section and just what we wanted. The staff really are amazing and very willing to accommodate guests. The beach was a little shook up understandably since the recent hurricanes. My one and only concern was the amount of vendors constantly harassing us. On a guided tour there was children very desperate for anything which was disturbing. That in itself is a learned behavior. I couldn't be rude or ignore them so I spent too much time justifying why I didn't want to see thier stuff. They all have the same stuff to sell. On the beach they want to sell you tours, get your hair braided and anything else you can imagine. I just wanted to relax that's why I booked a vacation.
We had a swim up room. It was wonderful. We could just open the patio door and take a dip in the pool. Highly recommend the upgrade. Housekeeping kept the room lovely & clean and restocked supplies as required. The entertainment was very good and we really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend this resort. Service and food was wonderful in the restaurants and the buffet was amazing.
The one thing I want to stress is how GREAT some of the employees are to the clients. I have a few names just to throw out there because honestly without them our stay would have not been so great. When you first come into the hotel hopefully you are greeted by Juan Espiritusanto, who took care of us from the minute we stepped foot into that hotel, explaining the hotel information, times the restaurants opened, where we could find the more popular places around the hotel and he took the time to talk to us about his country and the area we were in. I don't think there was a day we didn't see Juan and need his help getting around the hotel being that it was huge. Lenny Santana, if you stay at this hotel you will be seeing him a lot. He works with the animation team, they are there to make you laugh, exercise, just in general enjoy your stay while always having something to do. Lenny runs a lot of the yoga classes, Olympics, Beach Party all those FREE good things, he is 98% of the time the face you will see. He is friendly and will come right up to you to see if you want to join an activity for the day. Another gentleman we just absolutely adored was Angelo Joseph from the Water Sports area but also worked with Nexus, a company that looks up and books excursions. He was nothing less than amazing. He checked up on us and actually found us a good deal with 7 excursions for the price of what just one would cost. I was able to get a great deal for this hotel through another website and with the pictures provided, me and my best friend fell in love. We got in on a Thursday and the check in went pretty smooth. This isn't a free Wi-Fi hotel so we paid for a little portable one for our stay of 5 days. I would advise to get a room in the back of the hotel because it is closest to the beach, the activities and since they have 3 pools one of the pools are near those rooms as well. Now our room was I guess you can say clean but my pillow smelled like vomit and every time I tried to exchange it I feel like they just changed the pillow case and gave it back, I just ended up throwing the pillow to the corner every day. Other than that and the food that was I would say a 4 out of 10 this was the perfect place.
Staff was GREAT!!! We were there for hurricane Maria. The management kept all normal resort activities going until 7:00 PM, delivered breakfast to every room the night before in case the hurricane damaged/delayed a6:00AM opening. It wasn't needed as the buffet was open and operating as usual. The grounds grew began halling downed trees and preparing the property for vacationers use. The entertainment crew even performed an impromptu skit. The pool was open by noon the day following the Hurricanes rath. Will defiantly return!
The hotel has an amazing beach, blue water and nice pools, if you are interested on visiting I’d recommend that you consider the food. The food was way too average and limited variety on the main buffets, they had additional restaurants with reservation but with additional fee.If you don’t mind the food this is a great place to visit.
