We tried La Vista at the Marriott. It is typical buffet food. Everything was average and far from worth the $49 each. The only really good food was the pizza.

This buffet did not disappoint. It's a bit pricey @ $65pp, but worth it. I ate until I was stuffed. The lobster tails seemed to be endless and the desserts were overwhelming. Ate in the patio and there were a fireworks show to end my dinner. Had cocktails right before dinner as everything is 1/2 off from 5-7. I definitely... More

daily happy hours with sunset view are like to other. Fitzgerald our server was awesome and very personable. Nightly diner buffets were plentiful and had great selections.

It's 25 bucks for the breakfast buffet but trust me it's worth it. Great atmosphere right on the water. Would highly recommend. Staff is very friendly too

Went for Carnival night. Looking back, we could have made a better choice. On the high-end if you're talking about just a meal ($40 each), but I realize we're paying for the show. Just not our kind of show. Men and women in very showy costumes doing some fast foot-stepping side-to-side, forward and back. The food was okay. Most buffets... More

We heard that it was good but not spectacular but we decided to give it a try and were very pleasantly surprised! Plenty of lobster tails, just tails so perfect and easy to eat. Grilled right in front of you and served hot, not in a steam table. Everything else was gray too. Shrimp, crab, mussels, sushi and all the... More

The quality of food was poor and very expensive. Buffett lacked creativity. If you like ponderosa type food then you will be in heaven.

We saw the sign for 50% off drinks for happy hour and tapas to watch the sunset. The seating was off to the side and not very comfortable. My husband asked for a cushion for the outdoor chair and our waiter gladly accommodated. The menu for tapas was very limited. I ordered conch frites - good; my husband ordered the... More

The buffet for breakfast is great and has a ton of diversity! Lunch was awesome and service was very quick - good for a quick lunch while at the beach! Definitely recommend this for breakfast and for lunch! Didn't try dinner here but would assume it's very good :)
