Thanks for your review! I also look forward to having you back soon. I hope you tried the restaurant for dinner also, on one of the nights we have live entertainment..Thursday and Saturdays with Les Hodge, and Fridays with Mario Brown..always popular nights here. Chef Gerard's cooking is sublime indeed. See you soon!

Beautifully well maintain, La vista Resort is tucked away from the crowds at Simpson bay, St. Maartin (Dutch side). My wife and I spent the most relaxing and romantic time enjoying this cozy resort. The staff were very helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome. Simpson Bay has several other resorts very near by, so there's plenty to do...

Nice time share resort. The rooms are spacious and pools are very nice. The beach resort all has fantastic views of the ocean with nice balconies and the pool is perfect.

Dear Ejoe, It seems you have discovered what I tell all my guests..the snorkeling out front is awesome! While the beach IS rocky, there are two entrance ways into the ocean, and once you are out there, it is a different world. My grandfather once saw a huge ray! Also, the reef has little pools in front, which the kids...

La Vista was a very comfortable home away from home. We were attended to and felt safe while staying there.
