Absolutely lovely staff. The best view of any hotel there….stunning. We so love this hotel and will be back. Very European and old world but totally up to date in conveniences. However, know that there is no elevator or wheel chair access. It is like a charming Italian hotel on an upper floor with a long atrium and beautiful ocean... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at vista del mar very much, we loved how quiet & relaxing the environments felt at all times. Rooms were kept very clean as well as the rest of the hotel including the outside. Although you don't get much of a view from inside your room except for a window which faces the... More

How refreshing to find everything exactly as described and better than pictured online! The hotel is a charming hidden gem. I say hidden because although it is directly on the main street overlooking the ocean, you can miss the entrance to the second floor lobby if you walk by too quickly. We were warned ahead of time that there is... More

Location is perfect. Rooms, amenities and view are exactly as pictured and described online. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. It's the only hotel to stay at in Avalon as far as I'm concerned!

The rooms & property are very clean; the staff is very friendly. Great location! The continental breakfast is just right, including Starbucks coffee. We loved the atrium style hallway. The view is one of the best on Crescent Ave.!

Just experienced a wonderful stay at the Vista Del Mar. I had a courtyard room which was attractively furnished and very clean with very good air conditioning. The bed was also very comfortable. All of the staff was excellent. Check-in and Check-out were very smooth and quick. Notably, Juan was a wonderful staff member, we had a lovely conversation about... More

room was a bit on the cozy side but well appointed, however the real star was the staff they proved to be super helpful and most accommodating. will definitely return and would recommend, however next time around will try to get one of the sea side views.
