We had purchased a three night groupon stay and stayed here at vista villas in late April of this year. We were a bit apprehensive as there seemed to be very mixed reviews here on trip advisor. We can honestly say that we had a great experience at this hotel and would certainly recommend it to others - we stayed in one of the villas (not the two story building beside the pool - perhaps this is a reason for the differences in reviews?).
Our villa far surpassed our expectations - high ceilings with a nice bedroom, bath (basic), air conditioning and a step down common area with two large couches, a full kitchen and seated counter. Also, there was a fantastic walk out patio with comfortable furniture that overlooked the beach in the distance. We found our accomodations to be very clean.
We intentionally stayed on a Friday night as we wanted to check out this 'world famous' party at the monkey bar. Firstly, the monkey bar is a nice spot - a very nice pool with swim up bar and a fantastic patio overlooking the beach and stunning sunsets. The hotel was courteous enough to warn guests that there was going to be a party there on that night. The party itself was a bit disappointing - I won't go any further than that but perhaps it was because we slightly outside of peak season.
Overall, we had a great experience with this hotel and were glad we stayed. The location was literally, across the street from a surfer friendly part of the beach. Our room was great - clean and large and surpassed our expectations (we were even able to store our surfboards in the rooms comfortably). The staff was friendly (thank you Floribeth), the pool and deck was beautiful and we did not feel unsafe at any point.
