“good value, great location”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

we stayed here based on tripadvisor reviews and we were not suprised by the staff and service we'd received. the rooms are clean and have adequate space. there was always hot water in the shower. the location is great - right in the heart of town and can walk basically anywhere (which we did) and felt very safe. there is no actual door the separates the rooms from the 'outside world' so that was a concern of my boyfriends at first, but there really was nothing to worry about - there were no random people walking about in the hotel.
as mentioned by another reviewer there is not real privacy as far as the pool goes - it's located onto of a few on the shops (there is a courtyard like are of vendors with their shops along the same like of the vista del mar entrance) but it was safe and all we'd really needed.
after the first night i'd mentioned that the bed was really hard for me and my hip was really sore from sleeping on it - they said they'd look to see if they had something for us - later that night, while on the patio, we jealously saw a man on a moped with a new egg crate foam. to our surprise, a few minutes later there was a knock on our door and it was for us! we thought that was so thoughtful and considerate.
the morning coffee, juice and rolls/danish's we thought were just fine. not extreemly filling, but what we were expecting.
overall this place is clean, well located and has very friendly staff - it's what were were looking for, expected, and received.

Room Tip: ocean view is very nice in terms of the view... however at night it is extreemly noisy (unti probabl...

This hotel is a great value. I rented room #304 for $85 per night in February.

Great staff, good hot water and water pressure. Good internet (3mbps) in the lobby, sometimes worked in the room.

Easy walk to everything. 2 blocks from Aldora Divers, 5 blocks from the main ferry pier and square, 2 blocks from Sr Frogs and Starbucks.

Laundry service available. My bill for 10 or so items was $3.40 US!

Included breakfast is orange juice, coffee and two rolls. Service starts at 7:30. Likely after you have left to go diving.

Airconditioning is good but requires flipping a switch on our of to control temperature. There may have once been a remote but there was not one in my room.

Small fridge in room. In room safe. Comfortable queen bed with good pillows.

You can hear noise from the street including the 4am dive tank unloading. Mostly you just hear the ocean :)

Staff was very good all the way around.

There were two pools. I didn't use either but they looked nice.

Cozumel is about the safest place you could visit. I saw zero signs of any type of crime anywhere. The population is friendly and sincere.

I will return.

Room Tip: This is a small hotel. Any room on the ocean side is a winner. This includes 204, 205, 304, 305, 404...

Nice suites and large bedrooms (with two kingsize beds), clean and well airconditioned. The pool is literally in an open-air marketplace, so no privacy there. Nice and friendly staff, but the breakfast is worthless (two mini cakes and a coffee). Value for money when you can get a good discount.

Vista del mar is the perfect hotel for us.We are not interested in being controlled by all inclusive hotels.I am in the hotel business and I want to be away from work.Martin and Mai were wonderful and extremely helpful.Great location.Wonderful for people watching.Spotlessly clean.coffee and juice perfect in the morning.We will be back in spring.Make your res directly and not through hotels.com etc .Very convenient for dinner in the plaza after the cruise ships have left.Martin will tell you the best place to get a scooter that includes secured free parking overnight, the only way to go!

We had 4 nights here during our trip down to Belize. The place is very nice, centrally located and the staff are excellent with plenty of information and resources.

The rooms are very good (albeit a little dark), large and very uniquely decorated with many sea themes going on and if you are lucky you will get a sea view with balcony, which is great for people watching and watching the massive cruise liners come and go. Please note there was a very small in room safe which is good for travel documents and small electrical equipment, full size laptops will not fit.

Overall a very good hotel with a central location, the only thing that let the place down was the very poor in-room breakfast (which I really looked forward to) of juice, coffee and some unidentified pastries. We declined breakfast after the first day.

Comes recomended, but have a 2nd plan of action for breakfast, luckily there are many places to grab a morning meal.

Room Tip: Get a seafront balcony room

This hotel is a convenient downtown location with exceptional service from everybody involved. From the front desk to the cleaning ladies and security were all top notch.I choose the oceanfront room because I like to watch the cruise ships come in the just the general goings on on the main drag.Used Aldora for diving and the location to the dive pier a block away was perfect. Because of a 7:30am dive departure we asked for our coffee,juice and sweet rolls to be delivered at 6:45 and it was on time every single day. We bought some yogurts and fresh fruit at the Mega which is right down the street and had a complete breakfast.Within walking distance to shopping,restaurants and many dive shops.Booked through Orbitz and got a fantastic deal for Christmas week. The hotel had a Christmas Eve party for the guests and it was very nice.Air conditioning worked great but the only complaint I would have would be the hot water was a little challenging at times. All and all a great place to stay for the money if being in town is what you prefer which I do to the all inclusives.I will return

Room Tip: Email for any questions as they respond very quickly.

We visited here on our 10th anniversary and the service was fabulous!! Martin was very good at making us feel at home and comfortableThe room was nice and the view was fabulous!! We are all-inclusive people and we wanted something different and wanted to experience the local area and Vista Del Mar was the right fit!! Loved the continental breakfast that we asked to be served on the balcony facing the ocean!!! Breathtaking!!
