The pools are nice, but not fancy, and the upper pool seems warmer while the lower one has the ocean just feet away! We wished we could lounge on the beach, but it was great just being able to take... More

PROS: Wonderful front desk staff, fantastic views, upper pool is nice, kitchen well stocked with all appliances needed which was great for cooking breakfast. Near many good places to eat. We ate lunch and dinner out. Stairs leading from apartment deck down to pool and front desk area is really great. CONS: Slightly deceptive description on bathroom/shower situation for this... More

We come to La Vista in January for the past 3 years, as that is when our time share is. Would highly recommend... More

At one time I owned 4 weeks at La Vista and loved it there. After 13+ years I got bored and lonely as it was too expensive for my friends/and or my family to come down with me and I sold everything. Travelling there was very tiring also, 12 hours with one change in Miami. I have nothing bad to... More
