“Served our purposes perfectly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is an older property convenient to the airport and very close to the beach. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The rooms are dated and there is a "relaxed" air to the courtyard (i.e. not manicured, but with pleasant character) and it worked just fine for us. We loved the vintage neon on other hotels in the neighborhood.

Vistamar Villa is the best place you can stay in Ft. Lauderdale. The location is prime, walking distance from everything. Quite and relaxing, extremely neat and clean!!!
Loved it so much, we're definitely going back!!!
This is my kind of place and my kind of vacations.

It's been way too long since I visited so I base my review on the times I did. I used to visit Fort Lauderdale a lot, up to 3 times a year, and each time for up to a week we rented an appartment at the Vistamar.

The owners always greeted us nicely, the rooms were always clean if a little dated, there were always fresh clean linnens and towels. Have to say if I ever return to Florida I will be staying here. It's prime location, local amenities and the beach a couple of blocks away mean it will always be the choice for me!

This is a great little place to stay in Fort lauderdale. 2 blocks to the beach, restaurants clubs and of course Beach Blvd,but quiet when you get back to VIstamar. John and Mary will do everything that they possibly can to make your stay and holiday memorable.
The only problem is that they made thier pool oasis such a wonderfull spot that as a TV addict I didn't watch any TV because I was outside all of the time.
If you are looking for the chrome and glass towers that all look the same and you will forget about in 2 days don't stay here, but if you want a great little place with a personality that will become part of your holiday this is the place that you will remember for a long time.

Thanks John and Mary... we will see you again

Room Tip: they have queen rooms and suites

Had a great time in Ft. Lauderdale and the Vistamar Villa. This wonderful little oasis was exactly what my husband and 17 year old daughter were looking for as a 5 day get away. The suite was perfect and very clean and only a short walk to the beach. We were able to borrow beach chairs, umbrella and towels and the owners were very accomodating. The price was perfect and if we make another trip to the area we will definitiely stay here again!

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor which was perfect which overlooked the pool
