We have stayed at the Sun Viking for several years and up until this visit we have always enjoyed our stay. This year was different. The first thing we noticed was that our room had no ocean view. This was perhaps my fault for getting the room overlooking the indoor pool. It would have been nice if the person making our reservation had mentioned this. The room was nice but something would bite us at night. At first it was only my wife and daughter, but latter on I too was bitten. It got so bad that we bought some OFF Insect repellent to spray down with at night. I have never encountered this before in any of our previous stays. I also noticed some cockroaches when we would flip on the lights in the morning. This too I have never encountered. I was also not happy with the way the staff allowed children to dive from the sides of the pool. It made it almost impossible to float or swim in either pool. I guess I am getting too old to enjoy the children but there are signs everywhere telling them no diving. I think we may try a new motel for our next stay as things have apparently become a little lax.
