“Beautiful downtown experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

This hotel is a convenient downtown location with exceptional service from everybody involved. From the front desk to the cleaning ladies and security were all top notch.I choose the oceanfront room because I like to watch the cruise ships come in the just the general goings on on the main drag.Used Aldora for diving and the location to the dive pier a block away was perfect. Because of a 7:30am dive departure we asked for our coffee,juice and sweet rolls to be delivered at 6:45 and it was on time every single day. We bought some yogurts and fresh fruit at the Mega which is right down the street and had a complete breakfast.Within walking distance to shopping,restaurants and many dive shops.Booked through Orbitz and got a fantastic deal for Christmas week. The hotel had a Christmas Eve party for the guests and it was very nice.Air conditioning worked great but the only complaint I would have would be the hot water was a little challenging at times. All and all a great place to stay for the money if being in town is what you prefer which I do to the all inclusives.I will return

We visited here on our 10th anniversary and the service was fabulous!! Martin was very good at making us feel at home and comfortableThe room was nice and the view was fabulous!! We are all-inclusive people and we wanted something different and wanted to experience the local area and Vista Del Mar was the right fit!! Loved the continental breakfast that we asked to be served on the balcony facing the ocean!!! Breathtaking!!

We've now stayed at both the Bahia and Vista del Mar, and honestly, we love them both. Both of our stays were in a waterview balcony room. I'll try to concentrate on the differences, but both are good choices. Cost: We paid a bit more for the Bahia but the prices were comparable and you may find a better deal. Location: This was the only appreciable difference, in our opinion. We always like to be as close to a city's central plaza as possible, and the Bahia is almost 2 blocks closer. When the cruise ships are in, the walk from the Vista del Mar is like a gauntlet, with shopkeepers haranguing you every step and cruise passengers blindly milling about the sidewalk. If you're a diver though, the Vista del Mar is directly across the street from a major dive boat dock. Rooms: Both our rooms were plenty large, the Bahia being extra large, as it was a "suite". Although it wasn't technically a suite because there was no wall or door between the main area and the sleeping area. Both have good size decks. Breakfast: Both include breakfast, the Bahia you need to walk up the street and around the corner, but we liked the food much better. Vista del Mar brings your tray to your room, just tell them what time you want it.. The coffee was excellent, the orange juice is to die for, but the sweetbreads were pretty lame.

Room Tip: Vista del Mar has no elevator, we're in our 60's and got a 4th floor room. Most of you are...

This was my third stay this year. Large Clean Rooms, Great Staff Mai and Martin are the best. The Hotel is close to the Ferry, Town Plaza, Mega Super Store, Restaurants and shops. Ocean View rooms perfect for relaxing all have hammock chair on balcony. Have already booked for 2012 Carnival. Great Value ask about extended stay rates !!!

We walked around town looking for a hotel for one night a few weeks ago and I had this one in mind due to the good reviews here on TA. Checked a few others out, however they were asking $70-$80 a night and I remembered seeing Vista del Mar on Orbitz for half that.
Logged on to Orbitz on a blackberry, booked a standard room for $39 and walked in 5 minutes later to check in.
Reception was friendly and had our booking already. We were showed our room which was very large and clean. There was a big room with a tv and king bed then a smaller area around the corner with a queen, a nice renovated bathroom and even a cute patio/balcony.
We did not have an ocean view but didn't mind as it was for one night.
I would definitely book here again and if for a longer time I'm sure an ocean view would be great.
The location is perfect and the online price can't be beat.

Room Tip: I suggest checking for a cheaper rate online - saved about 50% by doing so.

Our room was clean and comfortable. The reception people were always very friendly and helpful. The location is perfectly situated near the ferry with great access to the local shops and diners. The employees provided assistance and directions to guide us towards the best attractions. I have and will continue to recommend this hotel to other friends.

Room Tip: Since the hotel doesn't have much in terms of "in house attractions", I would suggest...

I have stayed here numerous times, I was one of their first customers while they were remodeling it to make it the boutique hotel it is now. Rooms are nice size, comfortable & clean. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and speak English. You can even get some good discounts at their partnered beach location (Mr. Sancho's) just ask the staff before you go. Great view of the ocean, the Punta Langosta pier, and Playa Del Carmen on clear days. Free coffee and sweet rolls for breakfast delivered to your door daily.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room for the weekend, request room 206 or 306, no view of the ocean, but giant s...
