I went on this trip with my husband and my best friend to celebrate our birthday. This trip exceeded my expectations it was amazing in everyway. Upon arrival I felt extremely welcomed by the staff. Nikki and Ezekiel were very informative and Nikki arranged all of our activities and excursions accurately and was very patient and kind. The restaurant El Cano was great and the food was delicious all of the staff was extremely hardworking and friendly. Newton the bar tender was very good and made the best drinks. He was also very kind and made us feel like family. The bar tender by the pool tables Michael and Ruddy were very pleasant as well and worked very hard to keep us happy. The animation team was also the highlight of our trip. They kept us entertained with all the activities threw out the day and the shows at night. In particular Fabio Castro, Joel, Willin, and Carmen were the best. I could go on and on about how amazing our trip was we will definitely be returning soon. I recommend this trip to any and everyone. We didn't want to leave.

We had the best time at Vik Cayena. Melanie at the front desk was so helpful along with the entire staff. We had such a great time that 4 out of the 8 of us want to come back within the next two years. Great relaxing time. Pedro the chef and the entire wait staff was incredible. Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation!!!!!

We just returned from a thoroughly delightful week at Cayena Beach Resort. The staff were very pleasant, willing to help and almost everyone spoke 4 or 5 languages. The room was very clean and comfortable. Back and front porches. The resort is right on the beach and this part of the resort is for Cayena guests only, so it is not crowded at all. The only problem is you have to get up first thing in the morning to reserve lounge chairs that have an umbrella. Cayena has its own restaurant and bar for breakfast and lunch. For dinner you have to go to one of the restaurants shared with Arena Blanca, the other part of the resort. The buffet has an enormous amount of food, something for everyone. The food was not gourment, but most of it was tasty. The Italian restaurant and Mexican restaurants probably had the best food. The meal at the international restaurant was disappointing and the servers were not very friendly. There were many activities you could participate in, but many of them at night were for the younger crowd. But if you went to do a lot of nothing but spend time on the beach or at the pool, like we did, that didn't matter. The spa was a bit run down. The property was laid out nicely, but the landscaping wasn't kept up and some of the rooms had signs on them that said out of order. There were no showers to use after you had your services, which I would have appreciated. The treatment itself was nicely done and the masseuse was very pleasant and did a lovely job. If you are looking for shops, there are only two on site -a boutique and gift shop. Prices are a little high. But if you walk down the beach past the neighboring resort there are shacks on the beach where local merchants sell their wares. You have to be comfortable bartering and then you can get some good deals. You can arrange excursions through the resort. We went on one excursion called Reef Explorer, which was a half day and was a more laid back trip, not a party boat, which we didn't want. They took you out on the water to an area that had a dock area with chaise lounges, a common area on pilings where the bar and snacks were. You could also just relax in chairs there or have a foot massage. There were also 4 tented areas where you could get a full 15-minute massage. Then you could snorkel, float on mats in the water,paddle surf, and swim with sting rays and sharks if you choose. It was really nice and a different type of relaxation. Met some really nice people from different parts of the world. Most of all the beach and water were exquisite. We missed the blizzard on the east coast while we were there! Overall and lovely experience and we came back relaxed and refreshed.

Room Tip: Some rooms has two twin beds pushed together. Make sure you ask for at least two double beds.

Jan20-27/2014. Not sure where all these bad reviews come from. Great trip from beginning to end. We have spent an amazing week at this resort with my husband and his parents. We were located in block 4 on the 2nd floor with ocean view. The rooms were very clean and spacious. Everyone always seemed ready to help and very happy.The sand is very soft and the water is absolutley breath taking! The selection of food is fantastic and delicious (take my word for it, my husband is a chef) The men have to wear long pants in all of the restaurants but the buffet. At the lobby you'll find two cappuccino machines, the best cappuccinos and mochaccinos I ever had. You'll be hooked too.The workers on the grounds are always working to keep everything neat and tidy.They always seemed willing to please and I truly believe that attitude has a lot to do with outcome. The beach was fantastic, quite and restful, not to mention the perfect weather the entire time we were there. There are a lot of shade, but you do need to get up early (7am ish) to get a good spot.
There is a private part to the resort (cayena) which is more expensive, and not worth the update the regular rooms are nicer. The only difference are the furniture and more drinks are stocked in the mini fridge. We did the snorkeling trip, which was fantastic than had lunch on the beach (recomend it) We also tried the parasaling, what an experience have to say. The only down side that it is only 15 min long. Feel free to bargain the price down with the water sport guys, they will give deals. There are sale guys right by the towle place, we have not strucked deals with them, they a bit suspicious about how quick they change their prices when you try to decline first. Our tour guide said they only suppose to sell horseback riding. To be on the safe side buy your excursions from your tour guide or the guys from the beach. There is a beach market to the left on the beach, the guys are not aggressive or try to push you too hard to buy something, once you say "no" they'll leave you alone. However they sound really funny when they try to convince you that theire stuff is cheap- they only say: cheapy-cheapy. You can bargain with them as well. I sure do recomend this place for those who are not party animals. This is a very friendly, family, I wanna get away from the city type of resort. For all who seek true relaxation.Enjoy your stay.
