A week ago I needed one night at a hotel with easy access to the Fort Lauderdale airport and a suite allowing occupancy of 4 adults and three children. John and Mary offered both of these and more for us: a sofa bed in the living room, dining room area, separate bedroom with two beds, a kitchen (coffee-maker but not... More

No your not at a 5 star hotel, but what a comfortable place to stay. I went with my daughter and we not only LOVED it but felt very safe since we are two women. I will stay here again. This hotel made my trip! You can walk to town or drive and you can walk to the beach! I... More

We are enjoying our fourth winter get away here at Vistamar. Great as aways! People have commented on the squirl monkeys and here are some pics taken this morning. They have visited almost every morning for the last 3 week s.

We just returned from our second stay at Vistamar Villa and are already planning our return next year. Vistamar Villa is owner run and managed. John and Mary are welcoming and friendly and take time for leisurely conversations with their guests, as well as giving advice about local attractions and dining spots. The setting is informal and private: an L-shaped... More

We stayed at the Vistamar Villa before a cruise and one day between our second cruise. Very nice place and the best price ($99 for small room) in Fort Lauderdale. You can walk to all the eaing places and the ocean. Nothing fancy. Very clean room and the folks that own it are great. It is a small place with... More

There is no doubt this is a two star establishment and a little frayed around the edges and, there is no doubt that I do not do two star. So imagine my surprise when I realised it was two star; I was not really happy but it was booked and done so, to late, live with it. What a surprise... More

While this place was close to the beach and the owners were very nice, but we kind of thought the place was dumpy-old bedspreads, coffee machine didn't work and the fridge somehow turned off through the night-we were only there one night, but I really think this place is in need of an overhaul

We are sorry that we were not up to this guest’s expectations. Please read our web site where we state that we are not the Ritz or the Trump. We are a period hotel providing a spacious and comfortable environment. If you are looking for contemporary modernity we can direct you to other hostelries in the area but they will... More

I recently stayed an evening at Vistamar Villa along with my girlfriend. The location is great and the price was very fair especially in comparison to the other expensive properties off the beach strip. The staff was friendly and even recommended a couple good restaurants for us that turned out to be good recommendations. As some other reviews have pointed... More

Big mistake on this property. I booked this property after reading the positive TA reviews and what a mistake. We stayed three hours and had to leave, the property is run down, dirty and I'm just amazed that anyone might think it's cute and retro. I sat in the living room in Room 101 and looked up to a filthy... More

The fan blades are kept clean on a daily basis but the leading edges are worn and can look as though they have not been cleaned. We are in the process of replacing worn blades. Admittedly the pool deck was not at its best and we can only plead that it had been raining and very windy for several days... More

This place is suitable for 2-3 days sleep - no more. It is close to the beach and has its own parking. You can find a lot of restaurants and shops right on the seaside. All in all there is nothing memorable about this place. I have an impression that our apartment was gloomy and not very clean. Air conditioner... More
