Basically a cafeteria... No Ambiance, LED Flood lights on the deck in your face light at a traffic stop.
Pass on this one...

Family oriented hotel spot. The food was good and the outdoor seating is nice. Would recommend for a quick bite and if you’re staying at the hotel.

The majority of the restaurant is a buffet and it’s very noisy and full of families. The description of the restaurant did not mention a buffet or we wouldn’t have chosen this restaurant. We were not offered any drinks by our server. Just the water was fine but it was odd to feel pushed to order the buffet (we did not) and then not be asked what we’d like to drink. The waiter appeared annoyed that we didn’t want the buffet and was pretty curt.

Food was ok. But very expensive for a family of 4. Over $500 for buffet and I ate salad and soup!! Not going again! Would have rather ordered from menu / but they said there was only one server!

We always enjoy La Vista when visiting the Marriott in Aruba. Wide selection of food, salad items and deserts In the buffet. Also an excellent pasta station. Food and service are always very good.

Had lunch here prior to flight home. Easily located from surf club Marriott. Had coconut shrimp which was delicious, tuna citrus salad and chicken sandwich were ok, kids pasta was good. Service was off from the start, brought bread not bread plates, took a long time for order of drinks to be taken, waitress was unfriendly and a bit put off by her job. Didn’t bring ketchup, left plates that were empty when came to the table and when finally took them was abrupt and knocking into other plates. Definitely not top notch service but food was mostly good. Coconut shrimp being the standout

The hostess was rude and NOT friendly at all, we arrived early after making our reservation on OpenTable, I said we may be early, she looked at me and said “we aren’t open” and sent us back outside.....when we came back in, she said there were no seats available inside and we had to go out to the patio. We were finally seated inside and there were plenty of tables available! Our waitress was Tazi, she was exceptional! Then when I get back to our hotel, I get a message from OpenTable that we missed our reservation, well I just walked back over there and talked to the manager, Juan, and told him we paid for our meals, gave Tazi a great tip and the the hostess doesn’t even mark us being there so I get an Email from Opentable that we didn’t show up. Disappointed how things were handled!

BEWARE. had 830pm reservations on sat for lobster all u can eat buffet. at 850pm cut off from lobster. open til 1030? Rude mgr had no response other then grill closed. We came here 3yrs ago where did all the food go? Buffet selection was sad at best. We refused to pay for food we didnt get. We only came to eat lobster. Marriott should be ashamed n has lost our business.

Service was not the best. Sat down and we had to ask to order a drink. We were not asked for refills. Being a buffet, the server should have been more attentive as there is less to do at each table. Also for the price - $60 pp we should not have left disappointed

We went for a Thanksgiving buffet. There was plenty of selection and the food looked edible the problem was that all the food was room temperature cold. Onto e of ours selections were even Luke warm. I told our server and see reported back to us that she passed on my complaint to the chef but didn’t offer any solution to our cold food. Next year we will look elsewhere for a thanksgiving dinner while in Aruba.

Since my family and I were spending Thanksgiving in Aruba, we were hoping to find a restaurant with some traditional Thanksgiving Day food on their menu. La Vista did not disappoint! From the turkey to the cranberry sauce to the stuffing and the prime rib...the food was delicious! I overheard a few other guests commenting on how moist and flavorful the turkey was. The ambiance and service was spot on. While I didn’t visit the restaurant for any other meals, based on the quality and taste of everything on their Thanksgiving dinner menu I have no doubt that I would enjoy everything else La Vista has to offer! I thought the dinner for 4 was a little pricey but well worth it nevertheless as I know it was a special menu.

Brunch at the Marriott is our new go to location. While the Ritz is certainly nice, it is small and too many birds outside interrupting the meal. The Hyatt has just gone downhill over the past few years. The Marriott has stone crab, oysters and shrimp as well as all of the usual staples without being too artsy. Their outside grill stations are barbecue and they have a gelato stand. Right now the best brunch we’ve been to.

Our reservation was at 6:45pm on Thursday. This was a good reservation time because we had enough time to eat and then see the 7:30pm Carnival Show. The food was tasty and fresh. It was worth the charged amount and the evening was wonderful at the Marriott!

The food and service are really good, It is very clean.
It was a little noisy, sometimes hard to understand each other.
A little annoying that the toilets are outside.
But that doesn't keep us from coming back time after time !
A couple of times a year and also every year with our whole Aqua Windie's crew.

The lobster buffet was ‘okay’, with the lobster tails being super-small. Sushi was very good, everything else was plentiful. However, at a $69/pp price, I would have expected more. Notwithstanding, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset seating, always a plus at La Vista.
