We stayed for 5 nights and were pleasantly surprised. There are many long term and repeat guests which gave the place a family feel. The rooms are basic and clean. The location can't be beat. A nice, laid back place to stay.

I'm currently 19 years old and I have been going to Isla for 2 years now. I can tell you out of all the fancy hotels on the island, hotel vistalmar, is the most superb when it comes to the warm hospitality of the island. Though the hotel has a rustic appearance its balcony views are breath taking, from the... More

I've stayed at this hotel before and it is a no frills option. It is very clean and the staff is very nice. If you are looking for a no frills, basic place to stay near the beach and action, this is a good option. Nothing fancy but very affordable.

I stayed here with my friend during a 3 month trip in Mexico. We loved this place for it's sea views, proximity to the beach and main street, and friendly staff. The room was comfortable and tasteful, and last but not least, the price was right!

This hotel is a gem of its kind. It has great views of the boats and waterfront as its just across the street from it all. It's laid back, sort of funky and certainly cheap but the location and the fun people who go there yearly make it wonderful. Large social veranda where gatherings happen all the time. The rooms...

My wife and I have been staying at this hotel for 7 winters and we have met a lot of professional people from all around the world and many gloriously friendly Canadians. True, there can be some partying from time to time but this is not Fort Lauderdale. A simple request for quiet is usually sufficient. The rooms are comfortable... More

This was not the first time I’ve stayed at Vistalmar. I’ve traveled a lot in Mexico and this is your typical low price Mexican hotel. We paid $25 a night. The room was clean, the water hot and the furnishings basic. We had fan only with no air conditioning. It was only March, but if we stayed in July or... More

Clean, friendly, lots of hot water for the shower, ideal location for shopping, restaurants and beach. What more could you ask for at an unbelievably cheap price. We felt very safe at all times on the island. Only 2 minutes walk to the most stunning beach.

For the price, I got everything I needed: comfy bed, ocean breeze, working fan and hot water shower. My neighbors were yearly visitors who were pleasant and friendly and welcomed me to join them and share a drink. It is a nice location on the Avenida Rueda Medina fronting the beach. If you are looking for a reasonably priced option... More

Cheap stay, simple room, cleaned daily, friendly and trustworthy staff... Older building with a great view! It`s hot (air conditioner/fan is a must-have), and we had a run-in with a cockroach, but it was part of the adventure! We met other travelers with tips on the best places to eat and shop. I will definitely stay at Vistalmar Hotel again.
