The kids loved the Italian Buffet and the service people at this Marriott Hotel Restaurant were very helpful with our family!

“Very Good Food and Vangi is wonderful.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We ate breakfast at La Vista several times. It does not disappoint. It is a bit more expensive than other buffet breakfasts but you are assured of a variety of good fresh food. Eggs, fruits, cereals, breads are all good. The omelets are freshly made with an excellent variety of choices. There are two omelet stations in case it gets busy. The Chefs are always pleasant and accommodating. Don't see it on the buffet, just ask one of the super friendly people working there and if they have it they will make it especially for you. I recommend the breakfasts highly but be careful not to overeat.

We also ate dinned there on Sicilian night. Excellent freshly made pasta and pizza stations to assure that you are satisfied the choices. There is also a carving station (ham) and several meat choices. Beef Osso Buco, a lamb dish, chicken, and another beef dish I think. Fish was also served. Side dishes and deserts were also plentiful and delicious.

Say hello to Vangi the super friendly hostess.

“Good buffet”

Spent about the same as we did at other restaurants in the area, but this had much more variety including a really nice salad bar and dessert bar. We enjoyed it.

“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is located in the Marriott resort right near the pool. We had breakfast here on our last day and wish we would have visited more during our stay. They have a themed buffet every night (Mexican, Italian, seafood) but you can also order off the regular menu. The food was the best and cooked very Americanized. Nice to knw when going to places so far away you can get such good meal. The atmosphere was loud and it was pretty busy, but we were able to get seated right away.

“The best staff and good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We just returned from a visit to Aruba. We stayed at the Marriott Stellaris Resort and Casino. We would have breakfast at La Vista every morning. The food was good, but staff was outstanding! So friendly - especially Rihan (sp?). He went out of his way to greet us and he realized my daughter had Autism and was so great with her. He would always greet her and go out of his way to talk to her even if he wasn't our waiter. If we walked by the restaurant (which is poolside) during the day, he wold actually come out to say "hey Jessica" to my daughter. The service in the restaurant was excellent as well. They were very attentive and made you feel special. Natasha and Edgardo were also very nice. Would definitely go back.
