Smelly room, uncomfortable beds, mosquitos in bath

Beach & pool experience +++ Food, drinks +++ Room ---- Because we hardly stayed in the room, it didn't matter much, yet, as soon as door opened, ughhh, felt like vomiting. Not sure if it was from the sewer, or just the unit itself. Another issue was, mosquitos were flying out from the bathroom sink. Enjoyed being out by the pool/beach all day.

Beautiful grounds

Pros: The grounds, pools and beach
Cons: The rooms and staff that spoke or understood English better
This is a 3star resort. If you go expecting that, you will be fine. Our room was clean buts needs lots of updating, the building also. They were redoing 2 of the buildings while we were there. the service is adequate, some people better then others. The food was average for buffet food. On the bright side, the grounds are beautiful, the pools are great and the beach was very nice, with lots of shade. They are very generous with the alcohol in the drinks. We had a good time there with our friends. It's all what you make it to be especially if you don't expect more than the 3star rating.

Beautiful grounds and beach!

Traveled in low season, September. No big crowds at mealtimes and at the beach. Food was good to very good depending on what your preferences are and buffet meals always had big selection of American and European types of food. Room furniture and bathrooms definitely need upgrading, but we were only in room at night or to change clothes. Also, no close shops to walk to for shopping, but there were some shacks along the beach that actually had some nice inexpensive things. Just have to do a little exploring

Hotel is nice and close to the beach.

Pros: The music was nice.
Cons: The Resort should provide transportation to and from the room to the main lobby where everything is located. Maybe they can a gulf cart?
Location: Location was great, many stores nearby. I had a vehicle so this was not an issue. Very safe also.
While I remained in the Dominican Republic for ten days, I found that this Hotel does not compare with others in the area. It is okay but I found much nicer ones for the same rate. My main complaint is that the walking distance to the buffet, reception, bar, etc, is pretty long. There is no room service, and if you plan to go to the pool you are require to walk a distance to get the towels. The people are nice, but again, I found a better experience at other resorts.

Pros: The grounds was very nice.
Cons: Resort was not very organized and to many people trying to sale things which took away from the vacation. Entertainment needs and up grade.
First impressions were the worst, room had a leak in bathroom ceiling and water all in the floor; at first was told that we had to stay in the room, but upon requesting to speak with the manager we were given an up grade. Grounds was clean, equipment for activities were worn out, mini golf course was not kept up, and food was decent enough.

Wonderful beach and grounds but rooms not so much

Pros: Grounds, pools, all-inclusive and restaurants
Cons: Definitely housekeeping. Keep stores,all the bars and pools open later that 8 pm. Provide irons and ironing boards in rm.
Location: Not a lot of access to artisian shopping.. Wish there were more shuttles available to go to other places/activities.
We loved the beach area, pool and restaurants. Not a lot to do after 8 pm, when everything closes with the exception of a bar and the buffet restaurant. I couldn't believe the pools closed so early, since we would have enjoyed going swimming at the pool later on after being at the beach during the day. The grounds are beautiful and kept up very nicely. The rooms are another story. Our room was supposed to have two queen size beds. They were actually "full" size beds and shorter in length than a full sized bed would normally be. Housekeeping was very unreliable and inconsistent. Every day we were shortened on towels, trash can liners (which were completely removed and barely had any trash in them in the first place), and when we were out of toilet paper it didn't get replaced. I had to write a note to the cleaning lady the next day to please replenish the toilet paper. If you want an iron in your room, you have to go to the front desk to put a $20 deposit down to get one, and there are no ironing boards. At check out, no one at our hotel informed us about or gave us an immigration form to fill out before we left, as other resorts apparently do. We didn't find this out until we got to the airport.

A Room with a View

Pros: Miguel, the MC, Sexy Belly, Manaury, Elim, and DJ Victor were part of the entertainment and were great. Kudos to Miguel, he's the heart of Vista Sol.
Cons: Events and activities should be announced daily (all languages), and as they are getting ready to happen. More shows. Softer beds.
Location: Shopping in walking distance, and the usual excursions were offered.
When we arrived, our expectations were high due to the reviews we read. The hotel's entrance was near the road, and we thought this is one of those 'cheap' hotels. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Checking in was no problem at all. We booked a smoking junior suite but requested a non-smoking and that was accommodated with no problem. We had a great view of the ocean, and very nicely furnished room. The resort was laid out well, easy to get around with directional maps and arrows. Food was tasty with plenty of variety. We had dinner only once in the reservation only restaurant, but this was by choice. Everyday there was a different cuisine. Drinks were good, some a little too sweet, others a little too much alcohol, and the variety was not expansive. A drink not offered as part of the all-inclusive was expensive, $10. Entertainment available was good, more about that later. Housekeeping was timely, we never had to return and our room not made. We felt at home at Vista Sol even though we couldn't speak Spanish, and would come back again.
