I have had a pure pleasure to spent few days in this lovely, quiet resort. Its is located bit further from busy city centre so taking a taxi for shopping or night out is a must. If you looking for relaxing stay this resort will mark the highest note. Apartment was well designed with large kitchen/ living space area and very comfortable large bed on top floor. Kitchen fully equipped with Lavazza coffee machine and all utensils that you might need . Wine and water on arrival was a beautiful touch and I did that truly enjoyed. You can use top floor terrazzo for sunbathing, jump in warm swimming pool , have a soak in jacuzzi or just simply rest on balinesse beds while sipping of delicious cocktails. The best part of Vista Bonita are it dedicated staff - from Front of house, through bar finished on housekeeping they represent exceptional customer service and care, creating attitude free , relaxing atmosphere that simply make you feel welcome from beginning to the end providing truly memorable experience. So big fat high five to Leo, Pedro, Raul, Belen and lovely always smiling Mariola. I have had amazing time and look forward for another stay in this fantastic little gem.

Wonderfull small little hotel with about 20 rooms... Outside city center so a quiet place to have a relaxing Holiday... Rooms are clean and nice, nice breakfast and lunch, great helpfull staff... Nice pool and lots of relaxsbeds and sun rooftop with beautifull view to the dunes... Restaurant for diner and supermarket around the corner.. Transferbus to beach.. Clothing optional Which is great.. A place to recommend for a Good Holiday...

Another great stay at the relaxed Vista Bonita. Comfortable rooms, nice big bed !! Great pool. Naked if you want, roof terrace for a little more privacy !! All the stay are very welcoming Highly recommend - will be back again next year

I've stayed at Vista Bonita 2 years in a row and plan to return next year! Loved the changes this year. The bar is now open until 10pm, and on Sunday nights they serve a wonderful bar-b-que to give you a chance to meet the other guests. Also, the poolside bar/cafe serves great food. I love the 2 story apartments! I especially want to thank the very attentive staff. Merida, Belen, & Ivan - housekeeping. Kirie, Raul, & David - bar/cafe. And last, but not least, Pedro at the front desk. See you all next year!!

’m staying at this hotel for the third year and I’m always very happy that I haven’t changed the tradition. I don’t understand those who wrote negative reviews, because first you have to decide what you want from your vacation and then everything will be fine. parties and parties, it is better to choose another hotel, closer to the center of Jumbo, and if you want complete relaxation after night parties, excellent service full respect for personal space, then of course you are here. I especially wanted to thank Pedro for his friendliness.

We have just returned from Vista Bonita, we only stayed for 3 nights before moving on to another hotel in Playa Del Ingles. WOW it was superb, the two storey accommodation is just perfect, kitchen, living room and toilet on the ground floor, with bedroom and shower room upstairs. Very clean and with all the equipment you would need for a self catering holiday. Staff were all very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in a standard Duplex number 16 which looked out onto the garden. very peaceful, with your own outside space. Swimming pool was the best i,ve swam in, the water was so warm just like a warm bath. We are already looking at booking again for september in a delux duplex which over looks the beautiful pool area. Cant wait to come back.

This is our 2nd visit to this hotel and my first review of it. We booked about 9 months ago just after our 1st visit which we was very happy with The issue on our second visit however left us feeling let down and overlooked. On the day prior to our arrival we were e-mailed saying the Vista Bonita was fully booked and we would have to spend the 1st night of our holiday at the Seven Hotel. This was obviously very inconvenient as we could not unpack and then had to spend time travelling from one hotel to another - less than ideal. When we arrived eventually at the Vista Bonita we was put in room 17 up in the garden end even though we had paid extra for the deluxe room which we were led to believe overlooked the pool (rooms 1-12). I mentioned about some form of compensation and was told the management would look at this but we did not hear anything or received any recompense. It is disappointing that this was never looked at and we felt let down and ignored unfortunately. Despite this I have still rated 4* as the staff are absolutely superb and deserve a massive thanks namely Kyrie, Raul, Pedro on reception Belen, Mariova, and Ivan the cleaning team and David who is always so happy. The cleaning team are amazing. Thanks again. The management need to sort out the booking system and treat their deluxe room guests and compensate for inconvenience is my only criticism.

The most woderful resort to spend a holiday. The lovely staff made it feel very welcomed and cosy. The athmosphere is relaxed, friendly but still professional. The resort has all the facilities needed and what was especially nice was well-functional wifi. There was always parking place for a car. It was quite easy to get to know other guests of the resort if you wanted to, but also own privacy was possible. I highly recommend this resort both to solo travellers and couples also. Pedro, Mariola, Belen, Ivan, Kiri, Raul and David: you all are super! See you soon! Greetings from Finland :)

I have visited this restaurant (not accomadation) regularly over 25 years and can honestly say the quality of food is brilliant. The steaks are cooks to your liking (mine is rare) the portions can only be described as generous. Or BIG decided on your point of view.The service is excellent. Not left waiting for ages to be served. It is (I think) a family run business. They always make me feal welcome (as I dine alone) They will welcome you too. For a guide on price , tonight I ate a huge shrimp cocktail, followed by fillet steak, served with 2 baked potatoes, fried onions, grilled toms and seared red peppers. 2 large (bucket sized) glasses of red wine and a bottle of water. Total 35 euros around £33 really good value. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

As a very regular visitor to the VB over the years, you can allow yourself to over look the little niggles when they arise as we love the layout, location, space and comfort. I must say that the management have made an effort to bring the standards back up and address the issues we had on our last visit.... The air con and safe are included in the price you pay for the room, no annoying €7.5 euro a day surcharge, the bar is now open until 10.30pm and does not shut at 6pm, the BBQ on Sunday is much better quality, the cleaning is top notch, day bed covers are changed each day, pool and jacuzzi is cleaned ( it's needed!) and issues with sauna were dealt with immediately and not a few days later. The only issues people had were down to the demand, for example, you can't be guaranteed a garden room or pool view room, although early booking and returning regulars seem to get priority, hot water can run low even in the sun with solar panels, a bit of patience and tolerating a less than boiling hot shower is required, car parking is difficult if you don't pay to use the VB car park each day ( you have a few minutes walk to park your insured hire car down the street!). The management have signs up telling you to not feed Fredirico the cat who is now the size of a barrage balloon thanks to guests stuffing his face with crap. The one other cat is a bit shy, the cats are not an issue, just ignore them if you don't like cats. The two non duplex apartments are very different to the other duplex rooms, located above the restaurant , a bit more privacy than the other rooms but possibly noisier and lacking the views - do your research and don't book these cheaper single story rooms if you want the full VB experience. The pool is now very warm and does not provide that bracing shock on a hot day but neither does it make for a chilly dip in the cooler days, so it made it more usable. During our stay I witnessed, noticed how far the staff will go to make sure you have a great holiday. We were allowed to use the car park free of charge briefly to drop our large amount of shopping off at our apartment - saving a walk in the heat with heavy bags. A guest who wanted a local gym to use was offered the free use of the very exclusive and posh gym in the sister hotel Seven. We were allowed to use the restaurant tables, utensils. Fridge etc to cook our own meal in our rooms and eat it out in the open, we even had our own alcohol although we also used the VB bar. That made our holiday and showed the flexibility of the management. We cleaned up so the following morning it was easy for them to serve breakfast. The breakfast at VB is much improved and although €8.50 it was plentiful and tasty with hot choices cooked on demand. The bar staff now walk around the complex and offer / bring you drinks, a nice simple touch which works well with guests who don't fancy getting off their sun bed or chairs to socialise at the bar. The only remaining issues, which are minor and won't stop a return visits are..... The VB food choice is limited and understandably focuses on fast food as the rooms have kitchens, it's not very authentically Spanish and the quality varied depending on who was on duty. That said there is another eatery at the front of the resort and other local restaurants. The garden has been neglected, probably due to it being revamped in June 2019, none the less it looked scruffy , a little weeding and brushing up wouldn't take much effort The chairs on the upper private balconies are small, very uncomfortable and useless, get rid of them! Please water your large potted plants, they are dying in front of you, ,also the automatic watering in the garden randomly sprays water in the path and anyone walking past, it doesn't water the garden very well and needs sorting! As I said minor issues, the VB delivers a comfortable, clean, friendly base for returning guests to have a great holiday with a group of friends and it also allows singles and couples to mix with that or keep themselves to themselves. Still highly recommended - I hope the revamp doesn't change the vibe of the VB too much or hike the prices too high, it is what it is and fits in as the mid range Mow Hotel in Gran Canaria.
