“Vik Hotel Arena Blanca” in Punta Cana

Operating in Punta Cana since 1999, the “Vik Hotel Arena Blanca” Hotel has become a preferred destination for Germans vacationing in the Dominican Republic’s eastern region. Since it opened, 22% of all visitors that stay at the “Vik Hotel Arena Blanca” hotel are Germans.

The 447-room hotel, built right on an incredibly beautiful “El Cortesito” white-sand beach, is a four-star, all-inclusive facility.

Although in its very beginnings the hotel was operated by a German company, currently the facility is owned by “Vik hotels Group” a Spanish chain of hotels.

“Vik Hotel Arena Blanca” features spacious rooms, many with ocean front views. But, most definitely, its most important attraction is the “El Cortesito” beach and its very relaxed atmosphere.

Entertainment

“El Mirador” Restaurant offers guests continental and American breakfasts, and international lunches and dinner buffets.

The Calypso Bar offers visitors tea, coffee, cocktails, international drinks, soups and sandwiches.

La Trattoria (for non-smokers only) features a tasty Italian menu. The Starfish Restaurant, also for non-smokers, provides a la carte dinner options.

The restaurants that are not included in the all-inclusive package: “La Proa” (Caribbean and seafood dishes); “El Cano,” (excellent grilled seafood); and Friday evenings also seafood BBQs, featuring grilled lobster, shrimp, seafood and imported meats. For a romantic evening on the beach, guests may reserve an exclusive gazebo for two where fine dining is guaranteed.

Sixty-nine percent arrived through Punta Cana’s international airport, 18% through the north coast city of Puerto Plata, and 13% through Santo Domingo.
