I enjoyed my time here in a beautiful environment with lovely staff and other guests. Breakfast was delicious and rooms were pretty and clean . Only thing to complain a bit was the hard matress and the squeeky bed legs..

This hotel is great value for money, I don't have a bad word to say about this hotel. Friendly staff, great rooms and a lovely pool.
I would give the hotel a 4 star if they made improvements on the breakfast but you have a supermarket next door so you can get what you need from them. The restaurant that is next to the hotel is not that great but it did us for 2 nights. The hotel is a nice quite place that you can relax and unwind.

Would defiantly recommend this and I would come again.

My 2 friends and I have just returned from a highly relaxing week in this unique hotel in Sonnenland Maspalomas. Everything about this tranquil welcoming location makes for a truly amazing holiday from the warm welcome by Barbara the charming effervescent hostess/manageress (nothing is too much trouble) to the efficient staff Jacub, Trevor and Marc and all of the hard working staff. Breakfast was a leisurely daily delight taken alfresco style by the tempting crystal clear pool. The fellow guests were all exceptionally friendly and great company. The pool area and jacuzzi were ideal "meeting places". The background music was idyllic and added to the relaxing ambiance. This is one of the finest accommodations I have ever had the good fortune to spend my valuable quality "chill out" time. Nothing was too much effort by Barbara and her handsome collection of staff - she runs a "tight ship" and it sure pays off. I cannot wait for my return visit. I returned home feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated. Mike

I had the pleasure of staying at the Vista Bonita apartments for a relaxing week with my partner and two friends. Upon arrival we were greeted by Jacob who was friendly and helpful from the beginning of our stay until the day we departed, the entire staff were fabulous. The resort is safe, friendly and a great place to make new friends and enjoy the craic! The apartments are very clean but could do with some additional glasses, cutlery etc. We were all very sad to leave and will definitely be returning soon.

This was my second stay and my friend's fourth stay at Vista Bonita, so obviously, we really like the apartments and their layout on two floors. The location is an hour's walk to the beach and about a 10 minute taxi ride to the centre. The gardens are very well maintained, the swimming pool is always crystal clear and the rooms are serviced daily. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous and Bárbara, the manager, goes out of her way to ensure that your stay is as enjoyable as possible.

Before our arrival, Bárbara kindly organised our Taxi transfer from the airport to Vista Bonita but when we arrived in Gran Canaria, there wasn't a taxi waiting for us at the arrivals lounge. So after about 20 minutes, we made two international calls on a mobile phone from the airport to speak to Jacob who told us to go to office 9 at the airport. We were then taken to Vista Bonita in a minibus. On previous occasions, we were met by someone with a sign indicating our surname or Vista Bonita. We put this down to an oversight and did not make a fuss about it.

On our departure day, the airport taxi booked by Bárbara did not turn up at Vista Bonita to take us to the airport. It was late afternoon on Saturday and there were no employees on duty at Vista Bonita and no one answered the phone numbers we were given of the taxi company. We started to panic and eventually waved down a taxi that happened to be passing by. This was such a stressful experience for us that we left the resort feeling quite wound up and not knowing which way to turn. It is very unfortunate that the current taxi company used by Vista Bonita, is providing a very shoddy service and as a result ruining what would otherwise have been another great vacation.

I emailed Bárbara the next day about the incident and she immediately phoned me back in Brighton, apologised profusely and promised not only to refund the pre-paid taxi fare but also the taxi fare that we paid ourselves.

Two weeks later and we are still waiting to receive our refund. We would like to believe that Bárbara was not just stringing us along in a damage limitation exercise.

One tip: avoid a room which is near the jacuzzi pump as at the moment it sounds like a concrete mixer, and people do use it, even at 4 am after returning from a night out.

Twenty apartments in Sonnenland which is a quiet area of the island. Rooms 19 & 20 are furthest from the bar so best for the traveller who wants a bit of peace. Situated on a hill you get a welcome breeze from the scorching sun. Staff are only available at specific times of the day so you are left to your own devices. I had a nice friendly welcome from Barbara who manages the complex. The apartments are comfortable but basic and benefit from an upstairs balcony with double doors as well as a downstairs seating area with sliding doors which creates a nice breeze through the rooms. I think the apartments would benefit from some extras like more cutlery, egg cups etc but overall the place is good value for money. Its not luxurious more middle of the road.
The dunes are about 30 minutes walk away and taxis are cheap so good to use. there are also local bus stops outside for cheaper travel. Spar mini supermarket right next door, however, a short walk away is a new shopping centre whith a great Hyperdino supermarket, fantastic frozen yoghurt bar and a snack place with the best coffee on the island. Dont use the S L Transfer service as, although cheap, is slow and a waste of time. Great Tapas bar in the yumbo called Wapas tapas but you have to book in advance

Just came back from a week at Vista Bonita with my boyfriend and 2 other friends. The complex is absolutely beautiful.
We arrived quite late and were greeted by the very lovely barman Jacob who is not only extremely friendly and helpful, but also gorgeous! He gave us our keys and gave us a free drink from the bar.
The duplexes are beautiful, all alongside the pool and extremely clean and well decorated.
The beach is around 30 minutes walk and the yumbo around 5 minutes in a taxi - which there are plenty of driving past every night.
There are beautiful views all around and it is situated perfectly between the beach (lighthouse area) and the yumbo.
On the last day, as our house was booked, the lovely owner let us use a bungalow to store our cases and shower for free before leaving.
Overall a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend it.
