First time to island. Check in was a smooth process with friendly staff. We stayed in Unit 2 which was a partial studio with king sized bed. Everything was very clean and furniture was fairly modern. Nice pool and friendly bar staff who were engaging and funny. There was no high pressure time share presentation to attend. However information regarding...

Quiet, friendly, clean and I do mean clean. Any problems get addressed immediately. The new chef at the Hideaway Restaurant on the premises made the best grouper I have ever had. I can't say enough good things about LaVista except Thank you Andrea and Staff

We have been coming here for many many years. We love it. The staff are great. The restaurant lost their chef but have made it through. Winnie, John and Omar are great. The office staff are very helpful and so is the cleaning and maintenance staff. It is the best.

Hi Florence R, Thanks for liking it so much here! We do our best to make everyone feel right at home! My staff has been with me for a long time with the exception of a few new faces, so I am very fortunate. The restaurant has re-opened for breakfast lunch and dinner, and so far so good!

One more visit to Sint Maarten and of course La Vista, the home away from Home. They are continuing improving / maintaining the resort. La Vista is an Oasis in the middle of Busy/Hectic resorts but has a good Restaurant, Great Pools, not a lot of frills but excellent staff on board. Rooms are very clean, great views so close...

We were here during the tail end of a remodel. Everything they had done looked great. We had a suite and got a penthouse for our daughter and son-in-law. They were both very clean and had all the essentials. We booked through RCI. Not sure if this is a timeshare only venue. The endless pool is very relaxing with sun...

After having seen several timeshare resorts and presentations on our recent trip to St. Maarten, we stumbled upon La Vista quite by accident.....and it was like a breath of fresh air! The resort is family owned and managed....not corporate, and the difference shows. Daughter Alyssa happily showed us the entire property, gave us all the information we needed, introduced us...
