We had a nice and quiet time in Vista Bonita. A very warm welcome by Nicolette when we arrived. We loved the pool and the spacious rooms where we stayed. A shop and a restaurant nearby. Very pleasant. So it was a good place to relax.

I had an excellent holiday at Vista Bonita. Like everyone else, I was particularly impressed by the attention and interest shown by Nicolette and Ian. The south-facing aspect is ideal and the pool and jacuzzi areas are great. A local shop and restaurant are immediately alongside the property.
For me, I would like to have had access to at least one english and one french television channel. If these were obtainable on the tv set, I didnt find them.

Room Tip: About half of the apartments face the pool/jacuzzi area and the rest face the garden area. Most peo...

I went to Vista Bonita on my own as I was just looked for some sun and it was my birthday. I could not ask for a better place! It's was such a relaxing sanctuary, where the hostess Nicolette looks after all your needs.

The the general feel about the place is so....so relaxing, and it's clean and well kept.


Well done Nicolette and Ian on a job well done, I surely will be back!!!!

Warm regards

My partner and I have just had a fantastic holiday at Vista Bonita Apartments. When we arrived Nicolette "the hostess with the mostess " was on hand to check us in and then direct us to the bar where we were fed and watered. The atmosphere at the bar was cool - in a non-pretentious way - guests were laughing and joking and some came over and made their introductions. It later became clear that the guests, during our stay, were funny, generous and good natured people. Our accommodation was perfect and was just the right size for us - from our balcony, we had a view of the sea and lighthouse. The pool area and jacuzzi were great for lazy days and evenings at the apartments. The location was perfect for us with restaurants and shopping facilities within walking distance and a taxi rank 4 mins away. The Yumbo centre -tacky but fun with some good restaurants is a 5 minute taxi ride. The lighthouse area (Faro) is a little more classy with nice restaurants but not as much fun and is 7 minute taxi ride. Nicolette can arrange car hire at reasonable prices and there are beautiful places to visit such as Puerto Mogan. This holiday was well anticipated and it was made all the more special by Nicolette who would do anything for us and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend these apartments and will be returning soon.

This really is a fabulous place made all the better by Nicolette and her wonderful helpers. The apartments are great, the pool excellent and the bar area a lovely place to relax and let the world go by. You really can do as much or as little as you want here - we stayed by the pool for most of our week but hired a car (25 Euro for the day through Nicolette) for one day and drove up into the mountains and the national park.

All in all we had a wonderful stay at Vista Bonita and would highly recommend it for friends, singles or couples!

Room Tip: All rooms face south and Nos. 1-12 look out over the bar, pool, jacuzzi and 13 to 20 look out over t...

If you are worn out, need a relaxing place in the sun with a great hostess, Vista Bonita is the tonic you need. If you are a loud inconsiderate person/group then this is NOT the place for you. Staying at Vista Bonita with Nicolette is like staying with your favourite aunt (young one!). She arranged for a birthday cake to be baked for my partner and provided complimentary bubbles which we shared with all the friends we met at Vista Bonita. On the morning of my partner's birthday everyone sang Happy Birthday to her as she stood on our balcony having just woke up. It was like being part of a big family but everyone still respected each others privacy. Re value for money, I have paid more than I can afford for pretentious luxury hotels but the warmth you get from all at Vista Bonita is priceless. Lynne xx

I do not want to detract from the nice place and great accommodation as it is brilliant but nicolette who runs this place is just amazing, a Trojan. If she'd told me she'd built the place over night with her bare hands I would have believed her! "of course" you will hear her say! I felt at home, part of a community and safe; essentially this is what every gay/lesbian place should aspire to be, clean, safe and fun...what more is there?
We had a real mix of people from different countries and different ages and this place bought us all together like a school reunion.
Yes it's not 5* and it's not closest to the town but maybe that's the beauty of this place, a retreat, a holiday; At 3€ to town/beach it's hardly worth noting anyway!
I have never even thought of writing a review before and I think the fact I have says it all.
Nicolette, we thank you :-). James xxx
