My family of 5 loved this place. comfortable beds, and they can accommodate 5 in one unit (hard to find on Lauderdale beach). Great location - short walk to the beach - in a less crowed part of the beach, and to a cluster of restaurants/pubs. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Great pool area/grounds to hang out at.

Great location, clean hotel, very nice owners and VERY comfortable beds!! Everything was very nice - no it's not the Ritz, but I don't have the cash for the Ritz, and since all I do is SLEEP and SHOWER in my room I don' t need the Ritz anyway!

We love this cosy villa, its clean and a short walk to the beaches. We were welcomed by John, the friendly host. We had the single bedroom (2 double beds) and kitchen unit and its roomy, cool and clean. This was a perfect fit for us easy going travelers!

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
