Dear Aussiedogs, I am so sorry to hear you did not like your room!! I will go and check it out right away, as that is definitely not our standard. I did look in our maintenance request log, and I asked the front desk Ladies if anyone had complained about room 305, but I did not see anything in the...

La Vista is located in a quiet location with beautiful views of the ocean, cruise ships coming and leaving. Amazing sun rise and sun sets. The units are well maintained, clean and comfortable. Very friendly stuff.

Hi Mik345, I am glad you enjoyed your stay!. If you have been here recently, you were in for a treat, as 4 islands were clearly visible..Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts AND Nevis !!

I actually don't want to say how good this place is because I don't want it packed next time I go! Just amazing. From the balconies to the privacy to the amazing location. Why be in an overcrowded loud resort when you can be here?

We stayed on the Island for three weeks. Chose the first two weeks from airbnb and then shopped around for the third week. This is probably the best place of all. Very nice location. Very friendly staff. Very clean room. The Hideaway restaurant is also very nice.

The resort has an old Caribbean flavor while still being completely up to date. Central location, great accomodations and friendly staff will make your stay complete. We own two weeks each year here and by far one of our favorite resorts!

La Vista Resort gives more than an experience, it's a feeling of complete relaxation! We have been lucky enough to travel around the Caribbean and stay at many different resorts in St. Maarten and other islands. We always return to La Vista, as it simply feels like paradise! This is not the Marriot, but rooms are always spotlessly clean and...

We stayed in on the "beach" side in unit 205. The unit is perfect for a couple with a "shot gun" layout. In order, The patio is covered with table, chairs and lounger.

The pics of this place are accurate. The 1 bedroom we stayed in is very clean. And the resort in general looks well maintained.

We went to La Vista for one week in November. The weather was nice and the staff at La Vista were also polite and helpful. I would say overall La Vista was ok.

Dear Ottawadivers, So sorry you did not enjoy your stay! We are a small family owned and operated resort, and realize that we are not for everyone. Having said that, we are continuously updating the resort so I am surprised you said everything felt dated. We recently put on new roofs, installed new doors, re-tiled, added new bedding and we...
