“Fab Vista Bonita”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

stayed in June and had a fabulous time. Super clean appartments en just a few minutes and few euro"s from Yumbo and the beach. Out of the hectic Playa del Ingles and quiet and tranquil, but party if you want to. Anything goes.. Nico and Ian were fab and very accomodating, barbecue was good fun and a great way to get to know everybody. Great tip from Ian Tapa's Tango, delicious. We also went to the gym in Holiday World a few times. Nice place lots of eye candy! Great place to stay with a realyy good restaurant at the front if you cant be bothered going out. Loved it all, back soon! John and Emile

The stay in Vista Bonita was just great! Yan and Nico are doing their best to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. The apartments are very well furnished, the small kitchen is just what you need if you prefer to cook you own breakfast. The pool and bar area are very well kept, everything is clean and taken care of. Strongly recommended!

Room Tip: We were in room 2 just in front of the bar area. If you prefer to stay in quitter area rooms 15+ wou...

I have been going to Gran Canaria for many years and I just couldn't find a place I really felt was right to stay! I read your reviews before going and the ones on booking.com and decided to give it a try! Waw I'm so glad I did. The attention to detail is great. You are made to feel welcome and at easy from walking through the door. The complex is clean and very relaxing and a great gay space to be in! I was able to sleep at night when I wanted to, as it is in a very quiet area. I arrived a stranger and left a friend! The airport shuttle service was very grand and reasonable priced too! Nico and Ian are a great team! They have defo been to charm school and could quite easily run a course to teach other Managers how it should be done! lol I have booked to return with a friend in October! Well done you! I can't thank you enough for making may stay such a pleasant one. I wish you well in the future! The reviews are all so true and if you don't believe it! Then go try it! Abrazos Phillipxxx

Hi,

i was first time there Nov 2011, again for gay Pride 2012, and 3 weeks in june 2012, and will go back soon. Its just an really nice place, specially its located it the nicer part of Maspalomas, where regarding the neighbourhoods architecture you find a lots of typically spanish style houses, just beautiful, much more then the really ugly part Playa Ingles, with all those old from the 60s and 70s Buildings and Hotels, where the interiours and furnishings of the rooms are also still from those years and quite ugly.
Vista Bonita and the Managment, just makes you feel like beeing on a vacation, but really still feeling beeing and home and cozy, the apartments are on 2 floors, with nice marble floors, very nice marble bathroom, and a marble guest restroom on the lower floor, the small kitchennette, is nice and functional, specially as u have the supermarket just 1 min around the corner.

The furnishings are all fitting well with each other giving a feeling of an seaside vacation place with the blue and white colours, and are a bit more upscale and kept well maintained then in a lot of other hotels in maspalomas or playa ingles. So even a clowdy day, can be enjoyed inside of the apartment really well, and with plenty of TV Channels, available in spanish language, but also in english original version......The really best thing of those duplex apartments are the both terraces, one in front of the living room, and another in front of the bedroom upstairs, where u can watch over the roofs away the sunset and the ocean...just beautiful.
its not a big complex, so its really cozy, plus an advantage of Vista Bonita is, different then in a lot of other Bungalow complexes in Gran Canaria, that the entrance is in the back of each apartment....so for those, who dont like to be watched by the crowd hanging at the pool all the time ;)
Nico and Ian are very nice Hosts, and help you out with everything you need or need advice or help, Laundry, Doctors etc......really like a concierge Service in a 5 Stars Hotel. The neighbourhood is more quite, so means you really can sit at the pool and relax, without having noise around you, like in a lot of places at playa ingles and by nighttime you can leave the bedroom window open and listen to the sparkling water of the pool and fall asleep....you dont hear any cars!

Ill go always back to this place, have never had something better for this money. That doesnt exists in Maspalomas.....and for those who rent a car, even a lot might be available for your car!

Room Tip: All rooms have the same size, just slight differences in the colours of the decorations. If u like i...

This is my 4th time in GC and Vista Bonita is the one I'd return to. The apartment has lounge/kitchen area leading out onto your own terrace plus down stairs loo. Upstairs bathroom bedroom (large double in mine - some have two single) leading out to a balcony. Pool is big enough to do lengths....and a bar area.
Supermarket 1 minute away.
Short taxi ride depending on the time 3 - 5 euros.
Nico and Ian very friendly and helpful..

This has got to be most relaxed and friendly LGBT venues on the island. Nicolette and her staff cannot do enough to ensure that you have a good time and that your stay within the apartments is as enjoyable as possible.
The location is away from the Yumbo Centre, however this adds to the option of either walking down the hill to Meloneras for a quiet meal and designer shopping, or alteratively taking a 5 euro (including tip) taxi ride into Play De Inglis and the Yumbo an all that it contains.

Day times by the pool can be quiet and there is enough space, either on your own patio, or laying by the pool that you dont feel forced into getting to know everyone who is staying - although the weekly barbeque and the friendly staff ensure that you get to know everyone and have the chance to speak to people if you want to. The option of subathing on the Maspalomas Dunes is also avaialble and within walking distance.

My partner and I visited this complex in February of 2012 after a 6 year gap from Gran Canaria, it was the welcome and service delivered within this hotel that saw us return this month, and we are currently planning our next trip for September. This is one venue where the staff commitment to ensuring you have a relaxing holiday is a top priority, and there is nothing that any of the team will not do to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible.

Having stayed in Gay venues in Barcelona, Sitges, Costa Blanca and other european cities, we have found this venue to be the best balance of comfortable acommodation and good service at very reasonable prices. To Nicolette and her team - keep up the good work!!
