After being told on the phone that the price was 25 dollars it was a different story when we arrived. 35 dollars and a sour face at the desk. No breakfast included. No bedside lamps. No water. Advertised as a hotel? Having a laugh! Customer service is non existent and I'm not particularly fussy.

Nice but small room with colony of ants in bathroom. One hammock on balcony with OK sea view from second floor room, restricted by palm trees and huts on the beach. Disinterested staff. Agreed price on phone for matrimonial room and then when we arrived it was more expensive because there was two of us!! We stayed one night and... More

We stayed for a week at La Vista, while attending surf camp with Love Life Adventures. We were lucky enough to have the top floor room (#10) which was HUGE! It had a fridge, giant tub and fantastic patio. There were just 2 of us using the double bed, but there were also two single beds and a sitting area.... More

Great views of the water, Nice balcony with hammock. Offstreet parking. Safe and peaceful. Nice outdoor area with hammocks. A good value. A solid three star hotel with friendly owners who are present for breakfast and drinks at the restaurant in the evening. Front desk staff is friendly. Kitchen staff could be better but food is good,

Managed to get a room here even though we had no reservation. Our room had a private balcony with a hammock. We faced the front courtyard where the gate lead right to the beach. The room was super clean with a large well appointed bathroom. No air conditioning, but we were able to keep the windows open and the breeze... More

Just walking on the street along the beach, we've picked this one. It has a certain "Boutique" hotel look. We've got the 4th floor, highest and probably the larger one! Very commfy and what a view from the balcony! Staff is courteous and open. One of the manager even help another guest who had a car tire problem! We've enjoyed... More

Hi, this hotel was not available our first night, but soon as the weekend madness was over we saw our opportunity and moved. Our room was great. It was quite large, had good lighting, a balcony and private bath. The water did go off completely while my husband was showering but he survived. The hotel would be very noisy on... More

Maybe this is one of the best places in Canoa at the front of the sea. If you like the paceful this hotek is for you, you don't have TV and the wifi acces is limited, the sightviews are beatiful. Only a good place!!!

After being told we wouldn't find a hotel with hot water on the beach we walked into la Vista hotel and found this to be untrue. The location is ideal as it is far enough away from the (small) main drag so that you are not kept up all night long but still close enough that it is less than... More

We needed a quiet place to rest and enjoy the beach during the holidays. Although Canoa is now full of young tourists from all over the World, this hotel is far away from the noise, but close enough if you feel the need to party. Most rooms have a balcony, a hammock, and a view to the beach, which was... More
