We loved that the resort is small and you can get anywhere within a few minutes, the landscape is beautiful and the beach is the best. The food and the service is really bad, we stayed 14 days and our housekeeper never once washed the shower or the toilet, they just make the bed and change the towels. The entertainment...

The grounds of the hotel were very nice and the rooms were clean but very dated, but at least the air conditioning worked great. We paid the $90 to upgrade to an ocean view balcony room and it was worth it for us. We had to wait in line for at least 20 minutes to check in and then were...

I am late to write this review, but I stayed at Vista Sol with my boyfriend about three weeks ago. We were also quite skeptical of the negative comments... we are so glad we didn't listen to them! The hotel is outstanding, it's very well kept, clean, modern, and comfortable. When we arrived, we were greeted with wonderful staff, and...

If you can afford to do better, keep looking. This was our 4th trip to Punta Cana, we believe the beaches there are the best in the Caribbean. This resort was rated 4 stars, and I read a LOT of reviews before booking. I have learned over the years that what is important to some might not be important to...

I'm catching up on a few reviews, and Vista Sol is one of them. I took a few notes of some employees that didn't exactly make my experience very pleasant. I really prefer the positive reviews, but perhaps these are equally important to allow for some changes. I believe I spotted a pretty good deal on Expedia and boom, let's...

The location and the lay-out of the hotel is such that it possesses an ample beach that offers one of the largest amount of square meters per guest in the vicinity. The existing beach vegetation has been re-distributed to ensure adequate space for those wishing to enjoy sun or shadow. Together with the pristine beach and the transparent blue sea water our clients will find the relaxed atmosphere they are looking for. The beach is also ideally suited for long walks. Vista Sol Punta Cana has 471 rooms, the right size to be able to provide a personal service to our guests. Together with the colorful mature tropical gardens it offers two unique selling points when a hotel selection is to be made. Vista Sol Punta Cana is the perfect option for couples of all ages, honeymoons, romantic getaways or just to get away from it all and relax in peaceful tropical setting. WiFi is available throughout the hotel. Free of charge only in and around the theater and at an additional charge everywhere else. Evening entertainment includes professional shows and a discotheque where the drinks (local brands) are on the house.
