Wow, I just read the previous review. As you will see that one is completely inconsistent with most (if not all) of the other excellent reviews. We have travelled to Ft. Lauderdale for 4 out of the last 5 years and were very pleased with the Vistamar. As others have noted John and Mary are attentive, caring, very competent and... More

Manager was very nice and helpful. The office was only open certain times a day. The place is in the lower section of town. It is kind of scary. The streets are not well maintained and the parking area is very small. Upon checking in there were ants on the counter. Yes I know ants can be anywhere. The bathroom... More

Thank you for this review. As always, we will try to do better. However, we would like to respond. Our office is open from 9 am to 9 pm seven days a week. There are infrequent occasions when the office is temporarily not manned for short periods of time, in which case we post the time of our return and... More

First time to Vistamar Villas and very happy with our visit. Comfortable, clean, quiet, and charming. John and Mary are friendly and accomodating in every way. We enjoyed the serenity of the light music and pool area to relax. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The Vistamar Villa is owned and operated by John and Mary, who have created a pleasant oasis in a quiet section of FLDL Beach. Their sophisticated life experience complements their fully engaged and unobtrusive support to guests. The beautiful FLDL Beach and ocean is 0.2 mi, view unobscured by any building whatsoever from N Ft Lauderdale Beach Blvd. From there,... More

Decided to travel to Ft Lauderdale with 20 y.o. son. Our walk to the beach every morning was about 4 minutes. We were close to horse track, golf, great restaurants, water taxi, etc..... John and Nancy are great - perfect stay for us.

This was our first stay at Vistamar and we stayed here for 8 nights on the last part of our trip to Florida. Much better than staying in an impersonal motel. The proximity of the hotel to the beach and the city was perfect without the noise. The owners are charming, helpful and full of informative ideas. Because of the... More

I chose this accommodation based on the Internet site and other travelers' reviews. I'm in the 8th day of my 12-day stay, and I'd love to come back again next year! This is truly a little slice of paradise. We're a short walk to the beach, to a really good Thai restaurant and a good coffee shop, and not far... More

Back last October I booked my wife and I into this motel for our one week winter get away based on what I had read on this site and to say she was pleased that I did so would be very wrong.... However once we arrived she was very happy. John and Mary have a wonderful piece of paradise and... More

We selected this hotel because our cruise started in Fort Lauderdale. It is close (5 min walk) to the beach, enough parking space but a bit of a nieghbourhood that is being renovated. Pool is rather small. Rooms are spacious and very clean. It is good value for money if you want to stay over in Fort Lauderdale.

I really almost did not write this review because I wanted to love this small hotel. It just did not make the grade. The owners were very nice and accomodating. Our overnight flight arrived in Ft Lauderdale early and they let us check in before 10am. We had a room on the second floor overlooking the pool, which we had... More

While we were at times a little confused by the comments in this review, we appreciate all reviews both positive and negative. In particular, the negative reviews give us food for thought and prompt us to remedy any problems we can. We would like to point out that the room Tahoetraveller stayed in was the subject of a positive Atlantic... More
