Thanks for the great recommendation of our hotel. It’s especially good to have our returning guests explain why they like to come back again and again. Sure, it’s our great, accommodating and friendly staff, but it’s also the fact that you can get a simple room with a beautiful ocean view. You can check out the gorgeous view, while eating...

This is a disgusting hotel, there was red ants' nest in the room and spiders webs all over walls, it was as if no one had been in that room for months. The dishes in the kitchen were not washed. There were red ants in the coffee maker. There were yellow stains on the sheets. We spent most of the...

Really..."don't stay here if you want to live ants?" While we apologize for the inconvenience of having ants in your room, we also would like to remind you that you yourself said that they were not there when you entered the room.... So, by that logic, if we gave you a clean room and you got it dirty, its our...

It’s always baffling to us that we get the random guest who did not enjoy their stay with us., especially one like yourself who enjoyed the support of our excellent staff, prime location and spacious rooms. Apparently, we still won you over as you stated at the end of your comments that you might return to stay with us again....

The Vista Villas is a family run and family orientated property. This was our twelfth year in a row staying there and it just gets better each time! This visit the swimming pool was completely redone and it's beautiful. The staff is outstanding especially Floribeth at the front desk and course our long time friend Carlos, Ellen and Trevor.

Hi Larry!!! Thanks for writing a great review about us. We love having you visit us twice a year and you always stay in the same Tropical Suite, which is one of our bigger rooms. There’s nothing like seeing you and Lynne reading by the pool each day during your vacation. We’re glad you enjoyed the renovated pool with its...

Nice very spacious comfortable rooms. Great location across the street from the beach. Very friendly staff. From check in to check out the staff was on point and a pleasure to deal with. Yessenia my house keeper, Sara was at the front desk, Johana, Adolfo, Fernando and/to Yurren really made you feel welcome and comfortable. I'd stay with them again....

Me and my buddies just got back from a surfing trip to Costa Rica and it was awesome. The Vista Villas gave us everything we needed for our surf vacation.
