“Good, but expensive, buffet”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

We have eaten here on several occasions while staying at the Marriott. It is a very good buffet, but it is not an inexpensive one.

“A must do again and soon”
Reviewed June 10, 2011

On a recent short stay in Aruba we had the pleasure of dining at La Vista located along the beach. The atmosphere was too much of a temptation to turn down, so we wandered in for a better look. Our waiter's name was Francis and did an excellant job. We had the Churrasco steak salads which were fabulous.. Even the manager David Coster came over to our table a couple of times to make sure all was perfect. I can't remember the last time that has happened to me. We enjoyed this so much that we returned the next day and was treated exactly the same, almost like royality. i am ready to go back again.

“be careful of the US bills they give you as change. counterfeit from Colombia???”
Reviewed June 9, 2011

this is an island in the Caribbean, Aruba.
95% of what is served there has been flown in from a faraway place.

you can enjoy a made-to-order omelette with canned mushrooms
and cheeses and deli meats--all not from Aruba.

beware of what they say is "fresh-caught fish" because most of
what they serve in the soup, Italian pasta, and as fresh-grilled
has been previously frozen and flown to the Island of Aruba.

definitely a Happy Island if you don't think about where things come from...
and how much it costs (environmentally) to enjoy "fresh-caught" fish from
the far Atlantic or deep Pacific waters---all very far from Aruba's Caribbean waters.

“Food and Service to Die For...”
Reviewed May 24, 2011

Just want to give credit where it is due. The La Vista Restaurant in the Aruba Marriott Hotel provided delicious food and outstanding service. Special thanks to Josefina (restaurant manager/hostess), who was so welcoming and warm. In addition, Mariette went above and beyond in offering us friendly service. She was ever so kind in acquiring the marinade recipe for our favorite meal while on the island (the marinated flank steak salad was outstanding!!). The staff we encountered during our one week visit went above and beyond. Kudos to you all!
