We recently returned from a 3-night stay at Hotel Vista Del Mar. This was our first time to spend the night on the island (my husband and I had visited it about 5 years ago with our two sons just for the day) so we didn't know what to expect or where to stay. We just needed to get away...

We have stayed here many times and always have such a romantic time. The beds are fantastic and there are scads of pillows. The towels are soft and fluffy. Lots of them. All...

The continental breakfast is just right. The young staff are very friendly and ready to help with everything. The hotel is right on the beach and the desk will supply towels,...

I have not been to this hotel for several years, so my comments may not reflect the current condition of this hotel (I selected the earliest possible date below for our time of travel but our last trip to this hotel was probably 10 or 12 years ago). However, my experiences here were so uniformly good I wanted to counter...
