Stayed at La Vista Beach resort for 3 nights in Dec and boy was that a mistake.!!.It was evident from the beginning that the Staff didn't care less for our well being..Even though we had made arrangements for a Cot and mentioned that our kids would be sleeping on the Pullout.there were no sheets in the Pullout, and of course they knew nothing about the Cot..They even tried to charge us $30.00 for the Cot which they failed to initially mention..Not that we used it..It was somewhat old and dirty. Upon our late night arrival, we called front desk to get sheets only to find out that the office closes at 5 and you're out on your own..The Security Guard was helpful however and did find us sheets and blankets..Our Phone remained locked for 2 Days and they mentioned that they were having problems with it..Had to drive into Town to make a call.. TV also had to be repaired...
Fodors mentions that you can use the Pelican Resort facilities next Door but there is nothing further than the Truth..They haven't had an affiliation in 5 Years.
When we asked for some Towels for the Beach, the Person at the Desk mentioned that there would be a $5 Dollar Charge Per Towel if we returned them stained..Please.!!.what did she think we were planning to do..They also charge you a fee to use the safety deposit Box in your room...which by the way needs serious updating!!( The Room that is )What a Mickey Mouse Motel
I'm still trying to recover from the Sore Back sustained from their Brutal Mattress which the Manager claimed was replaced 2 Years ago...Sure it was...certainly not in my Room
Worst of all, Sabrina at the Desk was indifferent and couldn't care less if you were there or not..but rather stared right through you.How frustrating..She should try smiling for a change..
I stayed here based on some of the reviews....we were fortunate to stay at L'esplanade for the first 7 Nights....I'm not sure where some of the People here are used to staying at..but if you need a 2 Star Motel , with an indifferent staff...and shabby accomodations..this is the place for you.
I consider my accomodations to be an important part of the Trip.Unfortunately we planned our trip quite late and got stuck at La Vista..If I hasd known, I would have left the Island early.
Don't bother with La Vista..Its a damper on an otherwise incredible Island
