In more than 25 years of traveling the world to escape Canada's winters, we have rarely found a hotel that could better be described as 'just right.' The Vista Caribe has reasonably priced rooms, an ideal location (in the old part of town on a block between the beach and Playa's lively pedestrian eating and shopping street), a charming and attentive staff, and a bilingual manager, the affably accommodating Victor Gonzales. A nicely varied breakfast is included, and served between 7:30 and 11:30 on the patio and dining room next to the pool. Rooms are bright and airy, vary in size, have fans and air conditioning, fridges, sinks and microwaves, and large comfortable beds. Our kitchen area was roomy and equipped with a sofa, but came without dishes or cutlery. Our shower itself was terrific, but the stall and drainage vent could use some updating. Rooms on the main floor are grouped around the pool and garden. Some on the second, third and fourth floors have balconies, a few with views of the sea. Architecturally, the hotel has some nice colonial-style touches and the palms and tropical plants in the garden make it a nice place to read and visit. It's a friendly, convivial hotel, with a high number of repetitive guests. We stayed a month, and are looking forward to returning. We've already booked a return visit in 2018..
