This was my 2nd time at Vista al Mar and re-enforced my 1st impression...this is one sweet spot.
The location is very good and the grounds...small...are beautiful. From the entrance you can see the ocean framed nicely by the palm trees.
My room, in the new tower, was clean, well appointed, comfortable with a view of the ocean.
The staff are warm, friendly and very helpful. The lady at the desk helped me make last-minute changes to my trip. She called Cuenca and helped me re-book my reservations.
For me, I felt that I got very good value for my money. Worth every penny.
The breakfast served was adequate and sufficient...scrambled eggs, toast, juice and coffee. Coffe was instant coffee but very flavorful.
Overall - a lovely, warm, unassuming hotel
