We ate breakfast at La Vista several days. It has a buffet with omelettes, smoothies, pastries, French toast, bacon, coffee, etc.. The view is nice but the service is hit or miss. Some days we got drinks, cream, and the check quickly but other days it was like pulling teeth. They must work on training their servers or hire more... More

Breakfast Buffet was our favorite even though we had a few other meals here. Fresh Fruit Juice/Smoothie Bar and Omelet Station were my favorites.

We ate two out of three breakfasts at the La Vista restaurant in the Marriott resort. The breakfast buffet was very good and you really don't need lunch after that meal! They served both American and Caribbean items, omelets, pancakes, cheeses, fruits, pastries, even gluten free items for those that desire a choice.

Considering everything on the island is so expensive the price is super reasonable for good quality food . Totally recommend .... More

During our great stay at the Ocean Club, we had the buffet breakfast several times at La Vista. Each time we had the pleasure of being in the presence of "Pope" Francis. Along with the good food and service, I highly recommend going to La Vista, especially when having the honor of being served by the "Pope"...Francis!! Enjoy!

If you are staying at the Marriott Stellaris, you don't have a huge number of options for breakfast or lunch -- this is the main one. The food is very satisfactory, if expensive, which I guess you should expect at a resort. The service was consistently bureaucratic, slow and unfriendly. The restaurant needs new management that puts customer service first.

The food at the resturant was impeccable. The service was five star, Our waiter was very attentive. Everything was fresh and well seasoned. It is a little bit pricey but well worth it.

Great food and good prices! We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the ocean/beach. They had amazing buffets for decent prices every night. We enjoyed the food so much we all came back multiple times to try new dishes. The sea food was wonderful.
