“A piece of Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Vistana Beach club is a wonderful place to stay ! From the Warm Ocean breeze to sound of the ocean.. beautiful sunrises and sunsets right from the balcony.. The Staff is wonderful. very helpful and friendly.. step out of the door and you are on the beach.. drive a half mile down the road to Jensen Beach at the Turn about and watch the Surfers, Quiet and Quaint little Down town.. Can not wait to go back there again.

I'm an owner at Vistana's and will be leaving soon for our yearly trip. Can't wait for the view, the beach, and the great staff, especially Dennis, who makes us feel we are coming "home." Beyond the calming view, the highlight of every trip is watching sea turtles come ashore and lay their eggs. There are some very ignorant people who shine lights and take flash pictures, and leave deep holes on the beach, but most seem to understand what not to do around these endangered, and protected, turtles. I've often wondered if the check-in desk personnel might hand out larger turtle information flyers - that might help.

Room Tip: Ocean view with balcony makes the vacation.

Wow, what a great way to end our busy week with such a glowing review like the one you posted! Dennis has been with us for many years as is excellent in welcoming our owners like you to your “home away from home”. We have in room printed collateral in all units about the endangered sea turtles and a large sign on the boardwalk to the beach. For the most part the majority of our guests do not disturb the turtles while laying their eggs. I personally have never seen turtles lay eggs but have seen them hatching. What an experience I will not soon forget! Thank you for posting on Trip Advisor and we’ll see you again next year.

If your looking for a great place to stay on Hutchinson Island this is it! Great rooms, great beach, friendilest staff around (including the General Manager Craig Egan) and great location. The staff is ready to insure your every need. We needed a cheese grater and mentioned it by chance to a staff member (who turned out to be the General Manager) within two minutes he presented us with a grater - now that's service. This place is a gem and we will continue to set this as our sights for Florida vacations. We have been to the Vistana three times with each stay being better and better. Can't wait to go back again - and again.

Room Tip: Every room we have been in has been above average. Flat screen tvs, clean utensils of every kind an...

Thank you for posting your recent stay with us at Vistana’s Beach Club! I have to agree my staff is very friendly as you stated. It was a sincere pleasure meeting both of you on the boardwalk to the beach. I am so grateful you happen to mention you needed a cheese grater to me. We have many “special request” items and as you can see, a cheese grater is one of them. Be sure to look me up during your next stay with us, hopefully in the near future!

Vistana Beach Resort is one of our favorite places to vacation. A resort where you feel like you can reach out and touch the ocean from your balcony.
With the beach renouishment taking place this spring, when finished it will provide the best beach on the East coast. You will also see some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets from your balcony.

The new chair and umbrella service is very nice and reasonably priced. They also rake the beach, which is a big plus.

If you want a quite place to relax by the ocean, Vistana Beach Resort is the place to stay. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful.

Local places to dine are: Brock’s Surfside, The Landing, Tony Roma, and New England Fish Market & Restaurant. We also recommend Importico’s Bakery Café in Ft. Pierce and they have a stand each Saturday morning at the Ft. Pierce Farmers Market. They have great pastries and breads.

We love starting off our week reading such wonderful reviews like the one you posted on Trip Advisor! The beach restoration project is now almost complete. It is truly great having our dune and beach back. Chubbies Beach Services is a very nice enhancement for the Resort as you stated. Thank you for your kind words about my team members. The majority of them have been with me for 10 to 15 years. You certainly named some of my personal favorite restaurants in our area. I have never tried of Importico’s Bakery Café but will give it a try this weekend. Thank you for posting your recent experience at Vistana’s Beach Club!

Every time we visit Orlando we try to escape down to the Treasure Coast & the Vistana Beach Club. After 3 weeks of activities in Orlando with the grandchildren what can be better than relaxing at the beach club for a week. The staff are always very welcoming & nothing is too much trouble. The rooms have been refurbished & with the intoduction of a beach chair hire service, since our last visit, it only improves the offering available. Although one of the smaller Starwood Vacation offerings it only goes to prove that size is not everything!
We look forward to our next visit.

Traded into this timeshare with another couple. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, adequate kitchen. Pool was small but very nice beach on property. Jensen Beach small but lots of wonderful restaurants and shopping stores within 20 minute drive.

Room Tip: Ask for the front building to get a good view of the beach.

Thank you for taking the time to post your recent stay on Trip Advisor. Yes, all villas’ here are all two bedrooms – two bathrooms with fully equipped kitchens. Out pool is small as you stated but adequate for the size of the Resort. I have to agree, there are many wonderful local restaurants and shopping in Jensen Beach. We look forward to your next visit with us at Vistana’s Beach Club!

We come to the resort with my parents, and three of our children. We look forward to our trip for the entire year! The staff is amazingly helpful, and kind. They have two of the best activities directors a resort could ever ask for. Our children can not wait until we get there and they get to see Barry! Milla also works in the activities center and always has the biggest smile on her face. They plan the week with activities for the entire family. We could not ask for a better place to spend the week!

What a wonderful way to start off our week after reading such a great review like the one you posted on Trip Advisor! It proves that our company tagline of: “Creating unique, one of a kind, memorable vacation experiences to last a lifetime” fits perfectly for Vistana. I have to agree that Barry and Mella are truly passionate in what they do. Barry is our “Manager of Fun” and between the two of them they are very creative. We look forward to your return visit with us next year.
