First time staying at La Vista Beach Resort and it wasn't as I expected. The grounds were very clean and we had a magnificent view of the beach. I loved that we had a private balcony where we sat some days just to listen to the ocean with a cold beverage. What we didn't like so much, the water was... More

Hi teeWashington, I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us and wish you had come in to see me during your stay to let me know of the problems. There was indeed a main water break, and I thought I spoke to everyone, as the fix did not hold twice when we opened the water too early.... More

The pools are great and even the beach is awesome to sit on. You will not swim here, it is rocky. The daily service... More
