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...

The pics of this place are accurate. The 1 bedroom we stayed in is very clean. And the resort in general looks well maintained. The pool is lovely - although we have only checked out the one next to the restaurant. We are staying a full week through an exchange and it is quite lovely. An easy walk to many...

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. I'm not sure why there is so many great reviews... The 1st room we had was just average. The kitchen wasn't updated even if I had requested...

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...

Our first visit to the island and the resort. We like that it is a bit off the main roads and in a quieter section of the bay. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Grounds are beautiful, and so clean. The Hideaway restaurant serves great food- (grouper was fantastic). Especially enjoyed the night time dips in the pools. Our...
