“Perfect, Private, Quiet, and Away from the Resort Crowd”
Reviewed 10 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

For those of us who are not fond of resorts, La Vista Azul fit our needs perfectly. All the reviews I've read here in Trip Advisor were spot on.

Some tips --
The beach is about a five minute walk away (7 if you are not a fast walker) but when you get there, you have the entire shoreline to yourself. The nearest sunbather maybe about 30 yards away, if at all. I would recommend not carrying too many things since you do have to walk. Put sunscreen on before you head out because the sun can be fierce and will burn while you are walking.

Bring water shoes for snorkeling or swimming. There are reef rocks close to the shore and can be sharp to step on.

The waters are wonderful and warm even in December but tend to be a tad choppy during windy days. It is not as rough as the Jersey shore waves, but not as peaceful as the Maya Riviera waters.

As everyone suggested, get a car, unless you want to pay for taxi rides throughout your stay. Without a car, you are limited to four restaurants nearby: Mr Greenbean, Baci, Sharkbite Bar and Grill, and the Tiki Hut. Baci has wonderful Italian food. Mr. Greenbean has coffee and breakfast items. You can also rent snorkel gear here. We ate mostly at Sharkbite because they were the most reasonably priced plus if you sit in the balcony overlooking the water at night you will get a glimpse of the cove's pet shark -- about 6-8 feet long and looks menacing.

The hotel and all restaurants have access to U.S. TV networks so you won't miss out on your favorite football games.

Our room was a studio with a balcony and ocean view and it was fantastic, a sight for sore eyes especially when you have just come from cold weather. Our balcony overlooked the pool and had steps to get to it so you could go for a swim right away. The ocean from a distance was breathtaking. The studio was located on the top level of five staircases that while they are not a steep climb, you will find it "exhilarating" and worth the effort especially when you get to the top and take in the million-dollar view of Turtle Cove.

The studio was very clean but the kitchen minimally equipped. It has cookware, some glassware, utensils, chinaware, and silverware. But beyond that -- things like dish-washing liquid or dishwasher soap, paper towels, or counter cleaner -- is not available. There isn't even a salt or pepper shaker to be found. You will have to get all these at the supermarket (a five minute trip by car/taxi) if you plan to eat/live in. Daily housekeeping, however, is included, and we liked that very much. If you need to use the washing machine, the front desk can give you a single-use box of laundry detergent. Beach towels are provided in the room and the front desk can loan you beach chairs. Don't bother with umbrellas because they were broken and frequently get bent back by the ocean breezes.

Bring or buy bug spray and make sure you keep the screen doors to the room closed or they will feast on you while you sleep.

Our particular studio had a nonworking microwave oven, which is the only reason why I am giving this place four stars. After notifying management, nobody came to do anything. It would have been nice to get a few dollars off our bill. Otherwise, the place was very comfortable and better than most hotel rooms. I would definitely stay here again.

Lastly, the place no longer has a convenience store or the spa. Both businesses have shuttered mostly because the majority of La Vista Azul is occupied by long term residents who don't typically need onsite services. Jammin' Gelato is still there but open only from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Bliss is also there for a light lunch and a beer.

If you long for a peaceful vacation that is away from the run-of-the-mill, all-inclusive resort, you will not be disappointed in La Vista Azul.

“Great condo with an outstanding view”
Reviewed 4 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in unit 103. This unit opens on the pool and has direct access to the large pool area. The views are incredible and this location is not overcrowded. While access to the beach is a healthy walk, it is near Smith's reef where the snorkelling is excellent. We did rent a car for the majority of our 4 week stay and used it to visit the many outstanding beaches on the island. We could not believe the number of beautiful beaches that we had almost to ourselves. The weather was excellent and the pool area always had a nice comfortable breeze. Turtle Cove is very near the complex and is a beautiful spot with some excellent restaurants. We enjoyed the variety of restaurants in the area including Baci, Shark Bite, Tiki Hut and Magnolia. The Green Bean coffee shop was a great spot for an occasional breakfast and lunch.
We much prefer to be in this type of accommodation as opposed to the large hotels. I must say when we went to the beach at a nearby hotel they were very accommodating with chairs and all of the amenities even though they knew we were not guests of that particular hotel. We ate at a variety of other restaurants on the island. We particularly enjoyed Somewhere, Hemingways, Lemon, Mango Reef & Las Brisas ( in Chalk Sound). The prices ranged from medium expensive to expensive, but the food in general was very good.
We would highly recommend this condo. As some have mentioned the stairs are formidable but actually quite beautiful. Jammin gelato is on site and it is delicious.
Thanks Nick for your excellent and prompt communication. The condo was as you described and we had a great holiday.
