We just returned from a stay for 3 nights at Vista del Mar. The location was convenient (right in town), the room was clean and AC worked and the staff was very friendly. The only things that bothered us were:
a) we couldn't control the AC temp on our own, the employees had to come in and change it and as soon as the maids came in and cleaned, they would turn it back up (probably to save money), so when we returned from a long (hot) day the room was pretty stuffy.
b) we think there may have been a touch of mold, as my fiance's allergies kicked in the minute we stepped in. For allergy sufferers, it could cause some discomfort.
c) the "breakfast" was just some cold rolls, juice and coffee. I think its misleading (on Travelocity at least) to say they serve breakfast, when in fact it is continental and nothing more. I am accustomed in Mexico when they say "breakfast" they mean at least fresh fruit, yogurt, toast and coffee.
d) The "Ocean View" rooms are noisy and not worth the extra money, in contrast with some traveler's reviews. While the view is ok, (if you like watching enormous cruise ships pull in and dock), the road is REALLY noisy. I would most definitely get the regular room next time.
e) their pool is cold.
All in all, I'd stay there again as long as our room wasn't moldy because the location is good, the price is good and the staff is great.
