We had breakfast and dinner buffets at La Vista. Breakfast buffets serves freshly squeezed juices that they make right in front of you. There are about 5 or 6 different types. How often you see that? So yummy. Oatmeal was good unlike some other I have tried in the island. Fresh fruits were very good as well. We enjoyed dinner... More

We have been visiting Aruba for 15 years and, from time to time we try the dinner buffet at La Vista because it is easy and close. And every time it is a disappointment. The presentation is great, and it looks good, but the food is just awful!!! It is also really overpriced at nearly $50 per person without beverage.... More

Had breakfast at LaVista twice. The breakfast buffet at $25 / person is worth the money. Tons of food. Two eggs to order stations; large selection of gluten free food; fruit; yogurt, cereal – pretty much whatever you want for breakfast. The service was good. Ate inside both times so can’t speak to the outside eating area (except it has... More

We always go to LaVista at least twice each trip for the breakfast buffet. The food is good. My one ongoing complaint are the toasters. They have commercial toasters, however, they take a long time to toast bread. One of the toasters are the conveyor belt type which is very slow and after the bread comes out requires that it...

Usually when I see the word buffet I turn the other way as the quality of food is typical below what I would prefer. With that said, La Vista offers a breakfast and dinner buffet that were truly special. I was pleasantly surprised and will return!

Food was fantastic but the service from "Pope Francis" was the best part of the meal. My wife and I couldn't wait until breakfast every morning just to laugh with Francis. He made the trip extra special. I would highly recommend this restaurant but you have to sit with Francis. Our last day there, Francis was off and we had... More

I was there for dinner on Sunday. Prime Rib available. I loved the seafood. The price is a little high. I guess that is normal for a beachside restaurant. My wife and I really enjoyed the food.

I have eaten here a number of times during my stay at the Marriott. The buffet is convenient and pretty tasty. The offerings are on par with other resort buffets. I would skip the $65 lobster buffet on Saturday night. The small lobster tail were not worth the price tag, but it was the most convenient place to go on... More

We tried the Saturday night Lobster and seafood buffet and unfortunately we can not recommend it. We arrived about 8pm and the buffet was scheduled to go until 10.
