We are going on our second week here and have absolutely zero complaints! We rented the one bedroom condo from a private owner and our unit was perfect. Being in Bldg. 4, we parked our rental car on the upper level and it was 2 steps down, then another maybe 5. If stairs are a problem, a unit in this bldg. would be fine. We are located on the 3rd. Fl. of the bldg. When we arrived last week at 2:30 pm, our car was right there at the airport! Ten minutes later, we were in our condo. Took a quick trip down to the IGA for necessities such as bathroom tissue, paper towels and dish washing detergent, some snacks and breakfast items. From home, I brought laundry detergent in pod form and dryer sheets! I also packed a can of coffee, Splenda, tea bags, Crystal Light drink mix and shake and pour pancake mix! LVA has a grill at the pool area and we grilled burgers twice already! The grill also includes outdoor utensils such as tongs, fork, turner, etc. The condo we are in is clean, roomy and comfortable. It has central air but most of the time we keep the sliding terrace doors open and get a great breeze! The terrace is huge and equipped with 2 chaise lounges, 2 comfy chairs and a table. It provides a large sunning area and a large shaded area as well. The view of the ocean which is only a short distance away is spectacular. The terrace had lighting for night time. The entire condo is tiled with a nice area rug in the sitting area of the living room. All the appliances are stainless steel and the countertops are granite. The bathroom has a heavy duty, clear glass shower door and is completely tiled! The washer and dryer are stacked but full size. Everything was in excellent working order. We chose not to use the dishwasher because for 2 people it was just as easy to hand wash the dishes and utensils. We have a ceramic dishes, service for 6 as well as 6 sets of eating utensils. A coffee maker, set of pots and pans, electric kettle, serving utensils and a small electric grill are provided. We don't have a toaster so I use the broil setting and toast our bread and English muffins right in the oven. Very simple! The flat screen TV is a nice size. There are several programs that tell you about the TCI's including restaurants, places to see and things to do. These programs run continually! The 2 rooftop pools and jacuzzis are quiet and clean. We do have an ironing board, iron, hair dryer, plenty of towels, including beach towels and kitchen towels. I also brought from home a package of 20 plastic hangers which I will leave here for the next guest! You only have 2 small night stands with drawers and. Desk with drawers for probably undergarments and swimwear. You'll want to hang your clothes in one of the 3 large closets.

Room Tip: Bldg. 4, 3rd. Floor is suitable for anyone that may have a problem with stairs as long as you have a...

Very nice room. Had problems with microwave never resolved. Important when you are cooking yourself. Tough walk to beach, especially carrying chairs etc. Car rental a must. There is nothing there!!. Local restaraunts are marginal and expensive. Everything at IGA 30-40% higher than US ie. 24 case budweiser $55.00. You are renting someones apartment and that is it. Staff is small. Adela was great but most everyone else not. We realize you get what you pay for and this was a good value for the island. The Island itself is very small without many attractions. This could be good or bad depending on preference. This was our 19th carib trip and we liked it. We are out to visit every island possible. If all inclusive is your thing look elswhere.

Since you agree that it's not on the beach, there are a lot of stairs and there is no breakfast, the rest will be more than attractive.

Minutes walk to wonderful beach and really good restaurants at Turtle Cove. Quiet pool and fully equipped kitchen. A small convenience shop with bread/cookies, beer/liquers, snacks/juices, sunblocks/medicines...

Just two things you need to know: room service is slow, they're finishing making the room up somewhere at 1.30 pm. If you'll return to your room earlier you could find it with no towels/liniens, since they wash/dry all the stuff right in your room's washing mashine. Another "bug" - ambrellas that you could get at the reception will not work: ambrellas are old enough, and the winds are strong enough...

We recently stayed for a week at La Vista Azul. Having done our homework before booking, we knew that the resort is not on the beach and that it does not have an on-site restaurant. These things were not an issue with us as they have been with other reviewers. We, however, left with mixed feelings about the resort.

This is definitely not a place for anyone who can not walk up and down stairs. It is built into a hillside and you have stairs to get to your room no matter what building you are in. If you're in bldgs 4 or 5, it's a toss-up as to whether you park on the street level, where the retail shops are, and walk up or park up top and walk down more stairs (which means more stairs going back to your car) . For Bldgs 1-3 , parking up top is best. After a switch from building 4 to 3 (water heater issue in original room), the bell boy drove with us to make sure we found the upper parking lot, which is reached from a different street than where the main entrance is.

We had the largest 1 BR, which was nice. It was and end unit and had and additional half bath, which the other 1 BR's don't. It also had a tub if that's important to you. Others just have showers. Unit was modern with granite counter tops and stainless appliances. However, we found some of the furnishings a little odd. The bed is lower than a standard bed, which could make it difficult for some to get in and out of. There was no dresser/chest in the bedroom, so the only place to put clothes was in the two small nightstands. The shelf in the double closet was taken up with beach towels and additional linens. There was plenty of hanging space in the closet but not a lot of hangers. In the combination LR/DR/kitchen there were overhead recessed lights in the kitchen, but nothing in the LR or DR. The only light for these areas was the light kit on the ceiling fan in the LR area. There were two circular end tables in the LR but no lamps (gotten broken perhaps?). No chandelier or similar over the dining table. Made for some difficult lighting, especially to read. Finally moved one of the lamps from the BR nightstands into the LR.

Most of the unit are privately owned (although there are a number that are still unsold or up for resale) so furnishings will vary, especially when it comes to kitchen items. It appears the units started out with a dinnerware service for 6, but things have either disappeared of gotten broken. Replacements have not been made, which I would guess is up to the owners if the unit is privately owned, which our unit is. We had a 2-slice toaster, electric kettle and coffee pot, but don't count on making blender drinks as there was no blender. There was no "starter pack" of kitchen items that you find in so many places now - no coffee, no paper towels or napkins, no salt & pepper, and no sponge/dish cloths, or liquid detergent for doing dishes in the sink. There was detergent for the d/w but this doesn't work well for doing dishes by hand, which we had to do due to the odd number or plates & silverware (we didn't want to run the d/w with only a few dishes in it ). You can buy the above items at the convenience store located at street level or the IGA. It would have also been helpful to have some plastic glasses for use at the pool and hot tub, since no glass is allowed in those areas.

The units have an in-unit washer/dryer which is nice but again, not even one starter pack of detergent. We also found out that housekeeping uses the w/d to do the linens for the unit. Some days the housekeeper came back and replaced the linens when they were finished being laundered, but other days we needed to retrieve them from the dryer ourselves. Just an FYI if you return to you room and it looks like you don't have any towels in your bathroom.

There are no phones in the rooms. Apparently they have cell phones the give you with an initial credit for calls, but this was never mentioned to us. We found we didn't need it. Also note that there are no clocks in the BR's either so if you have an early morning flight, you'd best bring some sort of alarm as there'll be no wake-up calls or alarm clocks to set.

The location of the resort was within a 5-minute walk to a half-dozen restaurants in Turtle Cove. Beach access was about 5-minutes walk away, 1 minute drive. There is parking available. About a 15-20 minute walk or 5-minute drive takes you to Bight Park, which has facilities (rest rooms, boat rentals, playground, soda vending machine, picnic tables, and a small garden area.). The resort has beach chairs, small umbrellas, and snorkeling gear available free of charge.

There's two small pools, one strictly for adults, although some people tried to ignore that since the adult pool was closer to their room. Generally it was pretty quiet at the pools.

For what we paid, the place was a bargain but we did feel it was missing some of the small details. Perhaps this is a reflection that a number of the units that remain unsold and that little of the retail space at the street level is rented (right now it seems to consist of a convenience store, beauty/nail salon, small bar, and a realtor or two). Maybe if things stabilize on those fronts, there will be more attention to detail. If you don't require beachfront and the full amenities of a resort or hotel, it's a place to consider. We weren't unhappy with our stay but thought there is definitely room for improvement in some areas. We still would consider returning here but it would depend on pricing and current reviews at the time we would be booking.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay besides all the over priced resorts this is it. We like to fix our own meals in the mornings and maybe lunch. The room had a nice sized kitchen with all the appliances you could need.We wanted to have a place with some space and this was it. Nice big balcony with all the furniture for lounging. Good TV selection and the internet worked pretty well too.All in all a very pleasant expeirence. We would stay here again.The diving is why we came and the marina is just across the street . easily walking distance. Good places to eat within walking distance too. There is a shuttle that will pick you up if the dives are leaving out of the south side.Word of qadvice, no elevators,escalators. Park up top if you have a bunch of luggage or dive gear and carry it DOWN.

Room Tip: I tok the larger one bedroom and was glad I did, we stayed for almost two weeks and the extra space...

We planned on a last minute trip Turks & Caicos this past October and were so happy to have found La Vista Azul! Brittany at the front desk was a tremendous help in making our trip a success! We greatly enjoyed the studio condo with full kitchen overlooking Turtle Cove and Grace Bay beaches, with a pool right outside our patio. We found the amenitiest to be very clean, comfortable and modern. Just the right amount luxury with practicality.

Turtle Cove Beach is a quick 5 minute walk away and is amazingly beautiful with perfect turquoise blue water and quiet surroundings. Most days we had it all to ourselves. The more famous Grace Bay Beach is about 1/2 hour walk along the beach.

We enjoyed nearby Greenbean Cafe for veggie burger wraps and smoothies. Sharkbite restaurant has nice views of the yacht club and sunsets. Both are in walking distance from La Vista Azul.

A very clean supermarket (IGA) and lots of other restaurants are all a quickand easy cab ride away. La Vist Azul also has its own bar, gym and convenience store on site.

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Lemon Cafe celebrate our anniversary. Chef John was wonderful and made our night extra special!

Overall, La Vista Azul is a great choice for a very reasonably priced vacation in a gorgeous setting. It is true that we felt we were the only ones there, but enjoyed the privacy and the convenient setting and the friendly and helpful staff.

We hope to return again next year!

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms!
