What a special treat it was to stay at Thanda Vista. Every room, with it's own theme, is clean , well furnished with excellent quality bedding and towels. The hosts of Thanda Vista really go that extra mile for their guests,. The breakfast, served in the breakfast room with a beautiful view, is 5*****

This was their winter period & unfortunately the heating system didn't work for 2 nights. Warm blankets& heater were provided. Electrical pblms happened so we don't fault them. JP & Petra did all the right things and we were very pleased with our stay.

The decor is very fresh and clean. We had a small balcony facing the sea. The balconies don't have any privacy, though, because there is no separation between the balconies for each room, but this was not very important. It's a short walk to the beach and a quick drive to the town center which has restaurants and anything else... More
