We had a wonderful stay at Vista Mare. The design of the hotel is clever, elegant and sympathetic. The setting on the cliff is striking, with many a sunset watched from our balcony. The staff were very kind and friendly. It does help to have a bit of Spanish, as restaurant staff spoke very little English, and just a bit... More

We stayed here in a one bedroom suite for 6 nights in early February. The views are truly spectacular, as the property is on a steep cliff above the ocean. The staff, while friendly and helpful most of the time, do not speak much English AT ALL so it does make communication difficult even if you speak some Spanish. There... More

We have traveled a lot, but the Vista Mare was one of the most beautiful hotel we have ever seen. The view is amazing and the staff is friendly and attentive. To say that they go above and beyond would be an understatement. They could not have been nicer. The food was excellent and the beach was private and fantastic.... More

5 days in Dec 2013 with my girlfriend, who had her birthday while at the resort. Staff was very attentive while eating at the restaraunt, the food was terrific - it really made for a special stay. The privacy of the apartments is noteworthy, you don't share any walls with other units on the sides, just top and bottom. The... More

Our stay at Vista Mare was amazing and my husband and I would love to return there in the future. We visited in January and had good weather about 75% of the time. It sprinkled almost every morning, but the afternoons were very sunny and the temperature was perfect (high 60s, low 80s). The hotel was almost empty for most... More

First off we would stay there again...bountiful views of the sea, private beaches ringed by rock outcroppings and coconut trees, solid restaurant and bar, easy access to Samana and Las Galeras, well designed buildings, and not at all crowded in July. But our unit had problems with airconditioning (though it got resolved), dishwasher, poorly installed faucets, leaky clothes washer, etc.... More

I stayed at this this hotel for one night and really enjoyed their beautiful views from the 1 bedroom apt. and especially from the pool. I experienced excellent service from all employees we encountered on our stay. The design of the 2 connecting pools are eye catching and even more the views you could experience from there.

It's 15 minutes from town, so perfectly tucked away but a car is a must. The resort sits on a massive hill with the beach below. The views are breath-taking from every angle. The pool is great. The food is good, highly recommend Chinola juice, delicious! The villas are modern, clean, comfortable, w full kitchens. The service is awesome. My... More

We agree with previous reviewers, this is a stunning place. We ate dinner at the restaurant every evening and the chef is great, service also, if you ask for the head, English speaking waiter. Our only complaint is that you really need a car to get down to the beach, and we were discouraged from renting one by the lack... More
