The VIK Hotel Cayena Beach is the calm and exclusive part of the VIK Hotel Arena Blanca resort. Not too big but not too small, this haven of tranquillity, with 3 bars and a restaurant, is a genuine luxury in a region where each resort is bigger than the next. Guests at this friendly sized 24/7 all-inclusive resort have access to the facilities and services at the neighbouring Arena Blanca hotel, which include a spa, a gym, a casino, sports facilities, a kids club and an amphitheatre. In short, this is a small hotel when compared to the others in Punta Cana.

    Location 6.75 /10

    The VIK Hotel Cayana Beach is located in Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic's tourist epicentre, with its 25 mi of beaches between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, and on the southwest coast. It is in the extreme north corner of the large Bavaro beach, close to the White Sands golf course, 37 mi from the bustling town of Higuey (1hr) and 3h30 by car from the capital, Santo Domingo. The Punta Cana international airport is about 16 mi from the hotel (30 minutes).

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    No need to panic, you'll definitely be comfortable in the 45m² of your modest Dominican home, a generous size indeed... You will have the choice of sleeping in a royal bed (king-size, in tourist jargon) or in one of two queen-size beds. It goes without saying that the television is a large flat-screen and the sitting area has a mini-bar. Other amenities include an iron and an ironing board, and a free digital code safe that is large enough to hold a laptop, which, if you have yours with you, you can use to surf the net. All of the rooms have a balcony that looks onto the beautiful Bavaro beach. Finally, you can pretend to be Tony Montana in the bathroom's large hydromassage bathtub but cigars are not included! The toilets are separate.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    This establishment, a member of the Canarian VIK Hotels hotel group since November 2008, opened its doors in 2006. It is a 3 storey building that has 47 guest rooms in the middle of a pleasant tropical garden. The swimming pool area has been nicely laid out and includes an integrated whirlpool bath, as well as a small submerged bar. Wicker deckchairs have been set up all around in the shade of travellers trees. This is a true oasis of tranquillity. Breakfast and lunch can be enjoyed at the small poolside restaurant, and you can have dinner at the gourmet restaurant on the first floor (not included in the all-inclusive formula). Not forgetting, of course, that guests have access to the facilities at the VIK hotel Arena Blanca and its 1900m² lagoon swimming pool! This huge 1m20 deep pool is open from 10:00am to 6:00pm, and is equipped with integrated whirlpool, a volleyball net, and goals for water polo. This can be crossed via a bridge, which has an island with a palm tree at its centre. Children have their own 26-inch deep bean-shaped pool. The solarium area is equipped with deckchairs, palm leaf parasols, showers, and massage cabins, and towels are provided on site for free. The pool bar serves snacks from 11:00am to 6:00pm.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    Breakfast and lunch can be enjoyed by your private pool, which really feels like your own little oasis. On the first floor you will find a gourmet restaurant that is not included in the all-inclusive formula. Otherwise, you are free to take advantage of the various partly-outdoor restaurants at the VIK Arena Blanca: two (Italian and international) are à la carte and don't require a prior booking, and there is a pool snack bar (11:00am to 6:00pm), a nocturnal snack bar (10:00pm to 5:00am), and the main buffet, which can hold 200 diners, is located under a large airy palapa, and consists of 3 separate dining rooms. The cuisine served in the latter is international and there is just one theme night per week (Dominican on Thursdays). However, the buffet does boast a show cooking area every evening that proposes Asian cuisine. Breakfast is served from 5:30am to 11:00am, lunch from 12:30pm to 2:30pm, and dinner from 6:30pm to 21:30pm.

    Spa

    The Etra Spa is located quite a distance from reception and the communal areas (a 10-minute walk, but at least you can have a massage in peace!) It has two saunas (with an entry fee, one for men and one for women), a steam room (with an entry fee), a Jacuzzi (with an entry fee), a Vichy shower, a charming little relaxation garden with benches and a Jacuzzi (with an entry fee), a beauty salon (manicure, pedicure) and a hairdressers, as well as five massage rooms (including two double rooms) where products from the German cosmetic brand Babor are used. Shiatsu and hot stone massages are also available.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    At the northern end of Bavaro beach, the VIK Hotel Cayena beach is the Dominican dream: a wide strip of fine white sand bordered by coconut trees and from where you can make out a large coral reef. Plus, with crystal clear water at a balmy 28° and the branches of coconut trees hanging lining the beach creating a picture postcard setting, it's difficult not to be seduced by Bavaro beach! It's possible to partake in some beach volleyball or football here in the shade of the coconut trees. Massage cabins with palm leaf roofs are spread along 500m of the beach, which is also equipped with plastic deckchairs, palm leaf parasols, and showers. The water sports base offers a wide variety of activities between 9:00am and 5:00pm and an area has been marked out for bathers to give them a separate area from the water sports activities. The beach bar provides snacks throughout the day to the sound of merengue music.

    To know

    Ideal for couples, the VIK Hotel Cayena Beach is the very calm (offering no entertainment) upscale part of the VIK Hotel Arena Blanca resort. Guests have free use of the computer (with Internet access) that has been placed for their use in the lobby, and Wi-Fi is free in the guest rooms.
    In addition, they have access to the facilities and services at the neighbouring Arena Blanca hotel, which houses an Etra spa that is some distance from reception and the common areas (it's about a 10 minute walk but at least you'll benefit from a massage in the most relaxing of surroundings!). It boasts a sauna, a hammam, a whirlpool bath, a Vichy shower, a charming little garden with benches for relaxing, a beauty and hairdressing salon, and 10 massage rooms in which Babor (the German cosmetics company) products are used. You can also take advantage of the Shiatsu on offer. Other facilities include a meeting room at the Arena Blanca that can hold 100 people, as well as an amphitheatre where evening entertainment is put on and which can hold 200 people.

      The Punta Cana Princess caters for guests aged 18 and over and is not recommended for families. It enjoys a prime location on the magnificent Bavaro beach, and constitutes the quieter and more upscale end of a complex that also includes the Tropical Princess and the Eldorador Caribe Club Princess. Immersed in nature, this resort offers the all-inclusive formula and includes nine restaurants, a spa centre, a gym, numerous sports facilities, a kids' club, a nightclub and three swimming pools. In short, it's impossible to get bored here!

      This is an unusual place for Punta Cana, where most of the resorts that take over the area of Bavaro are giant and overflowing with facilities. The Stanza Mare is a friendly-sized aparthotel standing along the peaceful little beach of Los Corales. The facilities are limited to a large swimming pool in the middle of a tropical garden and an à la carte restaurant. You will have plenty of room in one of the vast apartments equipped with a kitchen.

The exclusive section of the Paradisus Palma Real, The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real Resort is set back from the exquisite Bavaro Beach, 10 minutes away, but that's its only flaw (there has to be at least one). Highlights include the spacious, maximum comfort apartments, equipped with a kitchen and a terrace with a whirlpool bath, the superb spa, the fully equipped kids club, the free Internet access, and the gastronomy, with a special mention for the Japanese restaurant. Of course, guests also have access to the facilities at the Paradisus Palma Real.
