This hotel and the adjacent condos are directly on the beach at Half Moon Bay. I had previously stayed in one of their condos, and this time I chose room 303 in the hotel, a one-bedroom with a stove, fridge, balcony, and couch that works fine as a bed for your vacation buddy. The condos are I think a little more upscale but the hotel is just lovely, too, and what a view! The first day, I saw a green turtle while snorkeling right in front of the hotel. I swam with it for 10 minutes. AMAZING. The front desk staff are incredibly nice and they can do absolutely anything -- rent you a bike, a car, call a taxi, book a massage, and more. There is a fun restaurant (La Buena Vida) next door and the magical Yal-Ku lagoon at the end of the road (10-minute walk). The snorkeling at Yal-Ku is otherworldly but go early to avoid the tour buses. You will love Vista del Mar. Not fancy but clean, lovely, and super service. Have fun.
