My fiance Sue and I stayed at the Vista Del Mar hotel 11-15-08 to 11-22-08. The staff and security are the best part of your experience here. We stayed here because it was located in the center of the business area which saved us alot in cab fares **The staff at the hotel told us the real fares to pay for cabs which saved us tons of money. (Cabs charge whatever they feel you can afford if you don't know better).** We stayed in an inside room that faced the sales area courtyard. It was much quieter than the ocean facing view, but be ready for people barking you down like carneys at fairtime when you leave or return to the hotel. The noise level is off the hook until 5PM everyday. Lots of great places to eat if you go back into the town a few blocks. The hotel staff was great in helping us there too. The rooms were always spotless when we returned and we felt very safe there thanks to Felipe the security guard/valet. The only downside was that toilet paper could'nt be flushed and had to put in your bathroom wastepaper basket and the rooms have very little clothes storage space (only a large armoire/closet). Finally, you can't beat the value, comfort, and location of this hotel. It's a no frills hostel but it delivers convienience and hospitality in a big way. We are divers who don't need much more than this on our trips. We would probably stay her again if we needed to save money. Thanks to the entire crew at the Hotel Vista Del Mar for a very enjoyable vacation.
