After having seen several timeshare resorts and presentations on our recent trip to St. Maarten, we stumbled upon La Vista quite by accident.....and it was like a breath of fresh air! The resort is family owned and managed....not corporate, and the difference shows. Daughter Alyssa happily showed us the entire property, gave us all the information we needed, introduced us...

We come to La Vista Beach every year and it just gets better and better. The location cannot be beat, with Peli Deli, The Red Piano Bar, restaurants and Hollywood Casino all in walking distance. The Hideaway Restaurant is delicious!! The resort does upgrades to the property every year and the staff is top notch. The rooms are attended to... More

We have been coming to St. Maarten since the early '90's. In 1994 we discovered La Vista and have never looked back. As our family grew so did our accommodations and now we are able to bring our whole family...4 grandchildren, 2 daughters and one son-in-law. We come here frazzled and stressed and leave rested and refreshed...ready to tackle the... More

For 11 years, we have treasured our La Vista experience. The staff is warm and welcoming and remember us year to year. The restaurant overlooking a spacious infinity pool has terrific food at all meals. There is a second pool overlooking the beach and the sea on the lower level. This is a small, family owned, quieter resort, better suited... More

We returned to St. Maarten after a lengthy absence. Our first time at La Vista after owning units next door at Pelican Resort. We had a 1 bedroom penthouse and the views were fantastic.

Dear Winedown186, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I asked the staff regarding the airco's, and was told they were not turned on for your arrival! I do apologize for that oversight. Hopefully that won't happen again! Looking forward to your return, regards Andrea@lavistaresort.com More

Resort is small and we liked that. TONS OF STAIRS and no elevators. Staff offered to move us from Penthouse to a ground floor suite but we really did not want to give up the view.

Hi Shannon, Glad you enjoyed your stay, I do hope you mentioned the hot water issue in the office, as I looked back and saw no complaint. Those units have their own hot water heaters, so hot water should have been in abundance! Same with the airco, but I will have a look back and see. As we are on... More
