The rooms were clean and nice but they want to put you in the least desirable areas if possible. Noise can be a problem. The front desk staff was not helpful and a bit arrogant. Too many choices for unfriendly, unhelpful staff.

Room Tip: Upper floors seem quieter.

I would love the opportunity to speak with you further on what happened during your stay. Please email us at Qualitycontrol@mbseasideresorts.com so we can look into this.
We do hope that you will give us another chance to give you the relaxing beach vacation that our guests have come to expect at Avista Resort.

We have already booked our fifth year winter stay here because this place is really the best of the best! Extremely affordable, terrific service and the support staff like Angela really make our 3month stay here so enjoyable. Everyone treats you like family. The sunshine and being right on the beach makes you feel so much better and knowing there is 24 hour service available is very calming. Maintenance response to any problem is almost immediate. The restaurant here is outstanding. Wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else.

A nice place to go, better than the OD in my opinion. I love the bar and pool outside. It may be a little bit of a walk from where everything is happening but it’s good exercise. Breakfast is fantastic

We arrived in very cold weather. We were greeted at the registration parking area by Cornealius. He unloaded all our food, drink and luggage and carried it to our room, while I handled the front desk duties. He was great to help us. The staff would contact me to see if we needed anything during our stay. Awesome people working here.

Room Tip: Our condo faced the beach and it was very well stocked with necessities.

We promise that is not the weather that we ordered for your stay and will do our best to make it a bit warmer on your next trip! Thank you for the kind words about Cornelius, we are certainly lucky to have him and all of all great staff here. We've got the heat cranked this week, high 50's and 60's all week, not too bad for the middle of January. We hope you will be back as soon as you can to enjoy it with us.

The units are very well equipped, the staff very friendly, and hospitable, and the views from the balconies breathtaking. Strongly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a few days/month to get over the winter blues.
