Reviews of Vistana Beach Club
Jensen Beach, Florida
I read the posed reviews, especially the party that gave a "1" to Vistana becaues of an attempted robbery from the terrace. I have stayed there for many years, usually three weeks each year. I do not know of any units with terraces. The lowest units start on the second floor of both buildings.
We just returned home after a week's stay at Vistana's Beach Club on Hutchinson Island. We have lived in south Florida for 35 years and have never been to Hutchinson Island or the surrounding area of Fort Pierce and Stuart. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. First of all, the facility is clean as a whistle and the staff are friendly and helpful. The facility is RIGHT on the beach so the sound of the ocean is an ever-present calming friend. I never knew there was so much to do in that area. Anyone that says they were bored or couldn't find a decent place to eat, just plain did not ask the staff for help. We wish we could have stayed longer.
This is a beautiful resort on a great beach front. The activities program for the kids is first class all the way. It's cozy, romantic, fun, kid-friendly and not touristy at all.
To the person who rated it a 1... do you really think this kind of thing doesn't happen everywhere? The resort shouldn't have been rated down because of it. All of the rooms have safes and your jewelry should have been in the safe.
We've been going here for years and it has always been a safe place and everyone is very kind and respectable.
Yes, the beach is unspoiled and the area finds things to do and restaurants. But stay elsewhere. We stayed here and came in to our your from the terrace and found a worker going through my jewelry at the bedside. When I called out from the terrace door, she ran away. Later when questioned she said was cleaning. Oddly she had no supplies or cart with her. The manager found no problem. I should have called police but did not. If you still choose to stay there, be cautious. I would never stay there again. There are many reputable places along the Atlantic coast.
We stayed here in December and loved it! The beach is unspoiled and goes on for miles. We had flocks of ibis just outside our balcony and pelicans flew by at eye level. The units are beautifully furnished and the staff is very helpful. A good grocery store and restaurants are nearby. There are lots of restaurants and places to shop in Stuart which is not far away on the mainland. We look forward to returning.
We stayed at this resort 12/15-12/22, 2006. They have recently refurbished this property, and the units are outstanding and very spacious. To my knowledge, all of the units are 2 bedroom.
Our unit was on the 7th floor (9 floors total). We had a nice sized balcony that included a chaise lounge and a table with 4 chairs. All the units in this building (2 bldgs) face the ocean (which is about 30 yards away).
The beach area in front of the resort is a little small and in December the surf can be rough, but we had a good time playing in the ocean and the water was very warm. There is a very nice pool area and most people sunbath here, but the hot tub was cold and the staff does not have access to change the temperature.
There is a little pizza place across the road & down about 1/4 mile. It is very good and very reasonable. The grocery store is about 4 miles away and is very well appointed. A car is a must at this resort as most things to do are on the mainland.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. This resort is very quiet and relaxing. We had a great time!
One of the best i have stayed at.Everything you want at a seaside resort. This one makes you look forward to vacations BILL
We stayed here in 2000 and I have to say it is by far one of the best places I have traded
for yet.Not many kids if you are a couple trying to get away alone and away from them.Seems
like a lot of retired folk here.Very friendly staff
and people.Beach was great also.
Beautiful resort nestled right on the beach. Very relaxing and the kids really enjoyed the uncroweded beach. I highly recommend this resort for folks that want to get away from the hustle.
