We liked Vista Bonita a lot. Apartment was clean and full equipped. From our balcony we had a nice view, since I could see the fantastic Dune of Maspalomas and the ocean as well. Forniture very confortable. Nice swimmingpool, garden and bar.
Position was ideal, since we had supermaket, shops and restaurant very close to the hotel.
Parking place available.
The apartment was quite for a nice sleep.
Owner Nicolette very kind and friendly.

Having read the reviews, we were enthusiastic about our impending week in Vista Bonita...but also naturally skeptical about some of the superlatives used by other reviewers. Could a place really be so amazing that you would honestly leave with a lump in your throat?

From the moment we were greeted by Nicolette and her daughter, and were treated to a welcome drink at the adorable bar, we began to get the feeling that yes, the other reviewers might well have been telling the truth.

The duplex apartments (we were no. 5) were impeccably clean, spacious and well appointed. Our personal terrace basked in sunshine all day but we were just a few steps from the cooling pool and the shade of the bar.The apartment’s marble interiors helped to keep a pleasant temperature inside, and we were comfortable at night as there were windows front and back that facilitated a breeze through the bedroom.

It turned out that we were the only girls staying that week but that didn't stop us from having the time our lives with our Irish, German, British, Dutch, South African, French and Spanish fellow male residents.

There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere about the complex – people gathered at random to chat in the jacuzzi and at the bar – but at the same time it was not too in-your-face. If you wanted to keep completely to yourselves that was absolutely fine too.

The Spar, which is literally next door, had a full range of foods for breakfast (freshly baked bread, cakes, croissants) and everything else you could need from cosmetics to alcohol to all groceries. Next door to that was a restaurant (also called Vista Bonita), which did a great pizza and also served lots of other kinds of tasty dishes. We ate in 'Mister Greek' in Playa del Ingles one night and the food there was amazing.

As well as Nicolette, the other staff including Gigi, Emma and Jacqueline were all a pleasure to deal with. They were fun, efficient and welcoming but never intrusive.

We will especially remember the barbecue and the party for one of the residents at which happy birthday was sung in a dozen different languages.

As we left, we overcame the lumps in our throats (!!) long enough to tell Nicolette that she has got something very special going with Vista Bonita. And we meant it…because she really does :-)

Room Tip: Apts. 2-10 (approx) are nearer the pool. But the others look out onto a lovely cactus garden

I have just returned home from a wonderful week in Gran Canaria. The weather did it's bit, but the star of the week was the accommodation! Vista Bonita has been on the market for quite a few years, under various management. Nicolette, who runs it now, has it back to being the best available. She, along with all the others working there, are attentive, considerate and keep the complex at a very high standard. The pool was great, the jacuzzi a novelty and there were many areas for taking the sun. The bar was well stocked and the fact that the restaurant, next door, delivered meals, was great for days when you just don't want to venture too far. The duplex was very clean, stylish and made for very peaceful night's sleep. What more could one ask for?!

Room Tip: They are all good.

Often its the staff who make the difference between a good holiday and a great holiday. At Vista Bonita I felt really welcome and not just a necessary evil. The apartment was spotlessly clean on arrival and serviced daily. Likewise the pool and jacuzzi. Bed was comfy. Sonnenland is not the most picturesque district ( but where in playa is?) but the view from the balcony was superb. Large spar just around the corner and restaurants and bars a short walk away. Its about a 4 euro taxi ride from the yumbo or maspalomas dunes ( although both are walkable). It was nice to be away from the noise and bustle of playa really. All in all a 5 star holiday at a 3 star price. Strongly recommended.

Room Tip: all are equally good

We just got back to England after 3 fantastic nights at Vista Bonita! The duplex apartments were nicely decorated, comfy and exceptionally clean. There wasn't a thing out of place and the beds were really comfortable (we stayed in apartment 12, but i think they'll all be the same).

There wasn't air conditioning in the apartment, but it wasn't needed because we opened the windows on both sides and the breeze carried cooler air in making it the perfect temperature for sleeping. We could step right outside our room to the Jacuzzi and pool which was fantastic and every corner of the hotel was spotless. They've really made the most of what they've got.

We are 2 young gay friends and we loved the fact that we were in a quieter and prettier part of town. It only cost 3 euro's by taxi to the gay beach at Maspalomas or the bars in Playa Del Ingles. And after visiting a friends hotel in town we are certainly pleased we didn't stay down there. If we visit again we'll definitely be staying a Vista Bonita!

We'd just like to mention the little Spanish restaurant sitting in front of the hotel. It is also called Vista Bonito (not sure if it's under the same ownership). We ate there several times. They had great wine, good quality spanish food and the waiters were awesome!

Thanks for wonderful stay!

Room Tip: We love room 12 because it was private (it's all pretty private), but we could step directly out...
