Just came back from one week stay at La Vista Resort. We enjoyed our stay tremendously! This resort was very quiet and peaceful. If you need to get away and relax, this is the place to stay. I mentioned to my friends that this would also be a great place to stay if you needed to make a big decision... More

Couldn't have picked a better location/facility! We stayed in a king suite which is two story. The rooms are clean with pleasant decor. Staff is friendly. Room was very quiet and private. Location ideal with plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Full kitchen with everything you could possibly need was a great addition and allowed us to save money on... More

We stayed at La Vista for one week and our family had rooms 101 and 102 facing the beachfront. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this resort for anyone looking to stay in Simpson Bay. • Checkin was prompt and we were provided friendly service all week. • Orientation was on Sunday at 5pm with free pizza, rum...

We weren't looking for a 5-star Resort when we booked at LaVista, we wanted a quiet homebase to use for our diving and sightseeing excursions. LaVista was definitely quiet, even with most of the rooms occupied during our week there. Though she is somewhat showing her age LaVista provides you with plenty of room to spreadout and the in room... More

This resort was excellent! We stayed at the beach resort in a 1 bedroom studio and our view was perfect. Our porch overlooked the pool & the ocean. We couldn't ask for more. The rooms were clean and modern and the air conditioning worked great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I highly recommend La Vista and hope to return someday... More

This is not the most posh place to stay, however all your needs will be met, and the view is FANTASTIC! You can see SABA on a clear day. This place is a great jump off location to go to all the other destinations. We always get a room down by the beach. The restaurant there is also very nice... More

This hotel is exactly what we were looking for. It was slightly hard to find as it is sort of hidden, but once we got there we were very pleased. It's quiet and clean. No annoying children running around the pool area and there were more than enough loungers for everyone. The pool itself was clean too, and the infinity... More

We had one of the cottages there, first thought was very quaint. After settling in we came to appreciate the cottage for it's privacy and space. Not ultra modern, but very nice, clean and well put together. I wouldnot recommend this to a family as there is no door between bedroom and pull out sofa in living room. The resort... More

I traded our timeshare in New Hampshire (Cold Spring Resort) for the La Vista Resort and we took our family vacation in August 2010 and headed to St Maarten. This was the second trip for my wife and I, but first visit for our boys, ages 20 and 17. I have to admit that when we were booking our trip,... More
