VIK Hotel Arena Blanca

Hard to find much info as Vik Hotel Arena Blanca is a smaller resort.But we are booked for Jan/2018 and considering if we should switch you Occidental Caribe ? Any one been to both and can tell me if there is much of a difference besides size? We don't need loud and noisy but would like some sort of night life (24 hour lobby bar with music ,non motorized water sports,entertainment and variety of food).Is it worth the hassle of switching hotels?

i stayed at the Punta Cana Princess next door to the Vik, its a smaller resort and i doubt you'll find much nightlife there. The Occidental Caribe is very large, a friend was there when it was under the barcelo name 2 years ago and loved it, massive beach front.

I love the Vic, been there a few times. Great location and small, No night life, no 24hr lobby bar. The lobby is tiny. I does share a Casino with the resort next door if your into that.

Sounds like this might not be the correct place for what you want. We did have a great time there ourselves though

Thank you. I think we may stick to VIK anyways. I've been torn as I look at others but the small resort has appealed to us for some R&R. We have stayed at larger resorts and in the end we always go to the same spot always on the beach .As long as we have a bar near by to get a cold drink I think this resort will be perfect for some low key relaxation after the holidays. I guess more so we go and expect low key no night life no big lobby bar and we won't be disappointed! Thank you for the review!

We loved the size of VIK and there is a show area and a patio area that is open later. It sounds like it might be exactly what you are looking for. This is the only resort that we retuned to a second time.
