Exquisite island paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Absolute bliss! Words cannot even begin to define the 9 days of bliss my husband and I had here at La Vista. I booked this first time vacation spot to Jamaica just by reading the reviews. It far surpassed our expectations! From the beginning Claudia is so professional and prompt in returning emails with any questions you have. Secondly, her staff at La Vista are exceptional! Jennifer will make sure everything you need or want will happen. Sandra is the best cook anyone could ask for she also had our cottage immaculately spotless! John the groundskeeper keeps the entire resort looking exceptional! Our private ground transportation driver Ronnie who drove us from MBJ airport and back was so professional and a pure delight.

We rented the cottage and absolutely fell in love with it! Very peaceful sleeping and loved hearing the chirping of birds etc. (My husband is a tall 6'2" guy and a Queen size bed would have made sleeping perfect - but we managed with the full size bed - LOL). We loved our own private deck and...we were the only ones at La Vista and had complete privacy. The pool is impeccably clean and enjoyed almost daily except when we went to James Bond Beach. We ate breakfast and dinner daily at La Vista and we let Sandra surprise us for every Jamaican meal we had - we loved every single meal! Island food is so fresh and healthy!

I could go on and on, but I am afraid if I boast too much, La Vista won't be available when we want to come back. Tears of sadness to leave were shed on our last day at breakfast - all the staff have become our new Jamaican family. The hospitality they provide is above and beyond. We did not want to leave and are already planning our next trip back to La Vista.

Warm regards,

Tony & Carol B.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that we were able to give you our island hospitality as well as provide a home away from home to relax and enjoy everything that La Vista has to offer. It was certainly our pleasure to have had you both with us and it was enjoyable for us at the same time. Good news that we move to King size beds shortly in our annual renovation so that will be a welcomed sight when next you return. Thanks for having chosen to stay with us. We wait to welcome you back

Just the Experience We Wanted

  • 5 of 5

When you arrive at La Vista, your breath will be taken away by the view of the ocean. I couldn’t wait to jump into that infinity pool and admire the view for hours! Pictures don’t do it justice! Each morning, I was greeted by the chirping sounds of birds and the waves softly crashing nearby. The cottage we rented was well equipped, spacious and spotless. I appreciated the snacks and drinks left for us, which were all local to Jamaica. And the staff must be mentioned: John kept the grounds looking immaculate (there were lots of beautiful flowers and plants that dot the property and the pool was the cleanest I’ve ever seen from a rental), Sandra cooked deliciously authentic Jamaican food (we ended up eating every meal there!) that included local and fresh ingredients and Jennifer answered every inquiry and made sure we had a pleasant experience. Claudia was easy to communicate with and booking was seamless and easy. There was no A/C, but with a fan and the breeze coming through the windows, we didn’t need it. My only wish was that nearby construction was not going on in the evening. Even then, the staff was thoughtful to leave us ear plugs.

All in all, I would return to this little slice of paradise each time I visit Jamaica. Forget the AI resorts... la vista met all my needs!

Perfect beginning to our holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful trip to Jamaica visiting family in Portland. Our first 3 nights were spent at La Vista and we couldn`t have chosen better - it is a wonderful location for total relaxation, yet conveniently close to some lovely beaches and places of interest, the view from the pool and veranda of the main house is stunning and the 'loft' cottage is delightful, spotlessly clean and comfortable, with everything you might need. Jennifer welcomed us warmly and looked after us brilliantly and our delicious Jamaican breakfasts and dinners cooked by Sandra, served on the lovely veranda just couldn`t have been nicer!

Just hoping one of the cottages will be available when we next come over to Jamaica - would love to stay longer next time! Thank you so much Claudia, Jennifer, Sandra and John

Expectations surpassed!

  • 5 of 5

This being our first time to Jamaica has set the bar very high! Our stay was definitely one of the best times ever on any vacation we have been on! Jennifer and crew went above-and-beyond to ensure our visit was perfect in every way. The gift for my wife on her birthday added the personal/family touch that made it even more special. Honestly, I'm reluctant to give this much deserved review because we want to be able to return and have dates available! Thank you LaVista for showing us the true Jamician experience! God Bless you all!

So good we had to return for more!

  • 5 of 5

Jennifer did it again!!! My husband and I stayed last year August and had such a great experience we had to make a return this year. My husband and I are born Jamaicans who live and work in the US. And this piece of paradise was every bit of relaxation we needed and looked forward to. The view, the pampering, the seclusion, the privacy, and the all around Jamaican feel of the property and the staff made our stay so lovely. I believe their goal is to make us feel special... And boy oh boy MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Thank you all so much!!! And yes we will be back !!!
