“You get what you pay for”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

This was not the first time I’ve stayed at Vistalmar. I’ve traveled a lot in Mexico and this is your typical low price Mexican hotel. We paid $25 a night. The room was clean, the water hot and the furnishings basic. We had fan only with no air conditioning. It was only March, but if we stayed in July or August, I would have paid the extra $10 a night for air conditioning. Not much else to say, basic clean room at low price.

Clean, friendly, lots of hot water for the shower, ideal location for shopping, restaurants and beach. What more could you ask for at an unbelievably cheap price. We felt very safe at all times on the island. Only 2 minutes walk to the most stunning beach.

For the price, I got everything I needed: comfy bed, ocean breeze, working fan and hot water shower. My neighbors were yearly visitors who were pleasant and friendly and welcomed me to join them and share a drink. It is a nice location on the Avenida Rueda Medina fronting the beach.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced option with a good location, Vistalmar is it.

Cheap stay, simple room, cleaned daily, friendly and trustworthy staff... Older building with a great view! It`s hot (air conditioner/fan is a must-have), and we had a run-in with a cockroach, but it was part of the adventure!
We met other travelers with tips on the best places to eat and shop. I will definitely stay at Vistalmar Hotel again.

This hotel represents the true culture of this area, and is a great experience. It takes a little getting used to but in time you will grow to adore it. Great prices, great location, and the maid, Ana cleans the rooms daily which is a major plus. Unlike the other reviews, we quite enjoyed the Canadians' company and found them to very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be coming back!

well we made it home after 55 days at the vistalmar.most everyone came back this year,and as always it was great to see everyone.this year makes 23 years in the same room,it was painted and looked great.If you want a very fair costing hotel and can get in,that the catch getting in its always full.But give it a try you won't be sorry.

Room Tip: thethird fool sems to be the best,cool and the view is like no other

just got home after 2 1/2 months at the hotel vistalmar and as always it was great.Yes people party on the 2 and 3 decks at night and thats one of the things that make the hotel great.We met people from all over the world.And yes they were working on the road out front and like any town that does road work one learns to live with it,hey its their town and like any town work has to be done.
for the price and for what you get its a steal.And yes i partied with Santa like we have been doing for years,it wouldn't be the same without him.
So if your not one of the people that has to show you that they pay 100s a day for a ROOM and just want a clean bed and shower the hotel vistalmar is a great deal.if you don't like meeting people the vistalmar isn't for you,everyone says hello and wants to meet you.
