    Great experience!

    My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel for 7 nights and had a great time. The hotel was built in 2000 and it doesn't seem to have had any renovation since but it's clean! The hotel just needs to be refreshed but on the other hand, there is a little vintage side. The food was excellent. The employees were very welcoming, helpful and smiling. If you are looking for tranquility, the hotel is perfect for you. There isn't much entertainment unfortunately. The beach is beautiful! The sand is fine and clean. There are waves but the sea is perfect! But from 9:00 p.m. there is a superb entertainment team at the theater. Unlimited alcohol from morning to night! I would like to thank Celeste the maid, Jesus the guide for the excursion, Jesus at the front desk, Gregory the Transat representative, the restaurant waiters, the entertainers, the cooks and the bartenders for making our vacation memorable.

    Wouldn’t return

    Honestly I don’t know how people are saying this resort is good.. We went the end of March into April and it was terrible. The beds are so hard and uncomfortable, we had an age from 78-12 there was 6 of us The food is okay, I wouldn’t say it’s great but you can find something to eat. The rooms are very clean .. however my bath robe went missing from my room. The staff at the front desk isn’t friendly and very rude when approached about things, they don’t understand much English. The drinks are very strong never made the same from bar tender to bar tender and the slushy ones are not very slushy. The entertainment isn’t great out of a week they had 1 Michael Jackson show one night, the kid’s entertainment is the same every night. Overall I wouldn’t recommend staying at this resort, yes it’s quiet which is nice but over all I wouldn’t go back.

    Perfect resort for a family or elderly folks!

    Took my 8yr old daughter on a "girls trip" from March 11-18th, 2024. My 3rd time to Vik, her 2nd but she was 21 mths old for her 1st time and doesn't remember. It was a cute smaller resort. Perfect for families, couples & elders. You can walk from the lobby to the other side of the resort in probably 8mins. 2 good sized pool, the 'salt water' pool (closest to the lobby) was just repaired. The pools are chilly in the AM, however refreshing, but warm by the afternoon. They are not deep pools, one pool has a volleyball net and a smaller kiddie pool (pool furthest from the lobby.) Lots of huts around both pools made from Palm Tree leaves. And these are refreshed with new leaves as required. Lots of lounge chairs, make sure you wake early to reserve your spot! There is a buffet restaurant open for breakfast, lunch (Jonathan and Emmanuel are fantastic) and dinner. They have a 'chinese food' station on the side, you pick your meat(s), veggie(s), rice and or noodles and he'll cook it up with your choice of sauce(s) (I always hand him a tip.) On the other side of the buffet there's a pasta station. There is one a la cartè restaurant which rotates International, Italian and Mexican cuisine. We tried all 3 each night. Delicious dishes at each. On Friday nights they have "Caribbean Night" dinner at Cayena at an extra cost (I'll post a pic of the menu) you need to reserve ahead of time. It's steak and seafood. We never went as my daughter is picky and she'd just waste food. My only complaint about the restaurants is that I wish they opened earlier. (7am for breakfast> Continental breakfast starts at 6am.) Snack bar is opened during the day in front of building #4 and #5. They make fresh pizzas, hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries and grilled chicken. Entertainment> kids disco on stage at 8:15pm (very cute) they do dances. Adult entertainment (shows) started around 9:30-945pm. Although the adult entertainment was not every night. It's a very low key, quiet chill resort, so if you're looking to party, this isn't the place. They have activities during the day by the pool and on the beach. I recommend for families to book a Superior room or the family suite. More room. We had a Superior Ocean View (breathtaking) 2 double beds. Housekeeping was fantastic. But I did leave $5->USD + a gift that I bought ahead of time daily for her. She left extra bottled waters & 4 extra towels when I left a note. Then everyday she did. The Beach is breathtaking! Clean white sand. Beautiful turquoise blue water. I recommend getting water shoes if you plan on going further into the ocean then near the tide as you will walk onto Coral. There are a lot of huts and lounge chairs you'll always find a spot to sit in the shade or in the Sun. About 45 minute walk from the resort on the beach is the shops. The property is beautiful and well kept and they are constantly up keeping the ground without disturbing there guests. I did use the spa facilities for a massage and it was very relaxing and I enjoyed it quite well we did not use the gym or the children's playground. *** When you are approached by people in light blue golf shirts offering you a welcome gift and a welcome meeting. They are recruiting you to buy into a timeshare. If you are not interested a strong "no gracias" is enough for them to leave you alone. Ricardo at the lobby bar is so gracious ask for "his special" if you drink alcohol. If not still ask for a surprise. Pedro Julio at the beach bar is also a fantastic a bartender. For first time travelers I definitely recommend bringing two reusable insulated water bottles, one for your alcohol and one for water. It saves you many trips to the bar to get more water or more booze whatever your preference is. Instead of the tiny glasses they give you. Overall we had a fantastic time at vik Arena Blanca and we would like to thank the staff for their care and service. I definitely recommend this hotel for a quiet vacation resort, see you next year!

    Pleasantly surprised

    I was pleasantly surprised with this resort. Most reviews are mixed. It is true one pool is being repaired and is closed, however the one pool that is open is quite large and had plenty of seating. Our room had a wonderful view of the pool and a slight view of the ocean. Two main restaurants are open daily. One pool side quick hotdogs, pizza and hamburgers grill is open daily. The beach has some natural erosion and it seems they are trying to repair in sections of the beach. Shade on the beach is limited so go early to snag a spot. Daily games included yoga and dance. Prizes given for winners.(local coffee) evening activities dancing and skits. Our check in was quick and so was the check out. We had the opportunity to purchase offsite activities as well. Explained by our prebooked travel company to and from the airport. Locals do walk the beach and offer hair braiding, trinkets, cigars and excursions as well. Can get somewhat annoying. Just be polite and they move on. We did book a hour massage at the spa. Facial and massage. The ladies were excellent at the services except it could have been more relaxing if they didn’t talk to each other the entire time. Will go again to this local. Go with an open mind. It is good but not top notch.
