Vista Del Mar Boutique Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff went out of their way to fulfill our needs. Each morning they deliver a breakfast of Mexican breads and coffee to your room which is very nice. It's an excellent location, looking right out at the water. The malecon below is interesting to watch. There's no bar noise, but there is a bit of traffic noise late. We brought earplugs for sleeping and it was fine. We loved it and would return again.

Hotel is in great location, close to all with great views. Highly recommend!

I was on the island for almost two weeks - mainly to go scuba diving - and, as usual, that was great. Before my last two nights at this hotel, I stayed a week at Casa del Mar and another 4 nights at Villa Blanca - both hotels south from town and closer to the dive operation I use. In forty trips to the island, I never stayed at a downtown hotel, so I thought I'd give it a try for a couple nights. I like the location, my room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, I got a nice ocean-view, and the staff was friendly and helpful. I was expecting there to be quite a bit of noise from the main road - right next to the hotel - and locals and tourists all over the place, and I was right. I was awakened several times from some boisterous people out front and once from a group of screaming youths coming back late to the hotel after a night of drinking and partying. The staff did get them to quiet down relatively quickly, though. I did want to get my clothes washed even though I was leaving for home shortly, and the staff again helped me there. They ordered a pick-up service for my laundry, but when the laundry service had transportation issues, the staff just did my laundry right there at the hotel. All-in-all, it was a nice hotel, and if it was located farther south away from the city, I'd likely stay there again. But given the difficulty coordinating with my dive operation and the downtown noise level, I'd have to go back to some of my other southern hotels I like.

We have previously stayed at vista del mar. Very clean. Staff is awesome. Location is the best.

Great location for people watching. Very loud in the mornings when the businesses are opening. Very nice hosts and housekeeping.

Good centralized location, close to ferry, great staff.

This hotel is in a great location and the hotel staff are very nice. The free continental breakfast is delivered to your room when you ask for it or at a particular time if you let them know in advance. The pool is small and is in a location that only gets sunlight during the morning hours. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

The ocean view room is large and it has a pretty awesome view from the ocean. The bathroom is small but it has some ammenities and enough towels. The location is great because is close to everything.

This was my first experience staying in a "boutique hotel". Not sure what that is supposed to mean, however I found the accomodations to be adequate. The staff on the other hand, were exceptional.

Pros: Clean, nice firm bed, plenty of towels, friendly staff, convenient location, good ocean view. Cons: AC is very noise and is too close to the bed, curtain does not block out street light, sliding door and building construction let street noise come through makes it hard to sleep well, safe could be bigger for note pad.

My wife and I stayed here for eight days and were satisfied with the experience. If you are looking for a basic hotel room downtown, this works well.

My best friend and I decided to do a last minute trip to Cozumel and decided to stay here. The location is perfect for Cozumel, its right in the middle of the city. With just a few blocks from the ferry we were able to take day trips to Playa de Carmen without any hassle. The staff is wonderful and really helped us plan our day trips around the island. Every morning we woke up to our hot coffee and mexican sweet bread which we ate on the balcony facing the water. This is a great choice if you are trying to stay away from the all-inclusive over-priced resorts.

I would have stayed a third night but they were full. Really nice room with balcony overlooking the sea, easy walking distance to everything. Friendly and efficient staff. Swimming pool overlooking shopping plaza, delivered breakfast (coffee, OJ, rolls) on time. Minor quibble is that my laptop didn't fit in the in-room safe. Overall a great stay!

The room was clean and hotel very close to the center square market. In a central location. The staff was nice. The breakfast included was pan dulce (Mexican sweet bread) with coffee and or orange juice...The only down fall for us was that we has rented a car and the hotel has no parking lot, we had to park at a public parking lot around the corner about a block and a half away. The internet was slow so we couldn't upload our vacation pictures to facebook.. Overall it's a good budget hotel just to come and sleep after a long day of fun in the beach.

We love the Vista Del Mar. It is a small hotel with alot of personality and a great staff that go out of their way to take care of you and help you with any needs you may have. My son left his cell phone on the airport transportation van upon arrival. The girls at the Vista Del Mar got on it right away and we had the phone back the next day. They are amazing. This was our second strip to Cozumel and our second stay at the Vista, I don't see us staying anywhere else.

Stayed for 1 night after a week in playa, before the flight. Overall - good deal for the price; location is great, staff is super-helpful. Breakfast was a dissapointment.

Just returned from another wonderful stay at VDM. The oceanview can't be beat and the staff is always kind and helpful. They even surprised me with a bday cake! They are in the middle of redecorating the rooms, can't wait to see them when we go back in February!

This is my 10th or 11th time staying at the Vista Del Mar. If you want to stay in San Miguel, Cozumel the Vista Del Mar is a great value. The rooms are relatively large and the view from the balconie nice. Word of warning, the Vista Del Mar was updated about 8 years ago and everything looked like the online picutes then. The bed linens, towels, and other furnishings have not changed since and are starting to get pretty well worn. In spite of that, this is still a nice clean, safe, place to lay your head at a very reasonable price.

The view out the balcony area can not be beat. The simple breakfast was pleasent and a nice touch. The mornings combined the too, with a great view while eating breakfast before starting the day. I missed not getting english channels on the tv, but it was good to have this problem. I mean without tv it made me enjoy more of what i was there for in the first place. I thought the rooms were very clean and well kept.

The front desk staff were great as always. The maids do an amazing job making the place look great (remember to tip your maids!). The WiFi worked fine, the hot water and water pressure in general was good. The fridge and the TV were a little dated, but both worked, and the air conditioning was more than adequate. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
