We just returned from a week's stay at this lovely Sheraton hotel. The hotel building and layout could not be faulted as it's very cleverly built into the mountains with swimming pools on different levels and the hotel is spacious, modern and clean. We saw teams of people continuously cleaning whilst we were there. The golf course is excellent and my husband enjoyed a couple of rounds with people he met during our stay. The spa looked stunning although I didn't actually get around to having a treatment. We went with our two boys age 12 & 9 and had a suite which worked brilliantly for us as its difficult to find rooms that suit families in decent hotels which aren't extortionately priced. The boys had a double sofa bed and an extra camp bed in one room with a TV and then there was a corridor with a row of wardrobes and our room with TV was at the other end. The balcony was huge and ran the length of the room with large bathroom, separate toilet and shower. We had half board so ate breakfast and dinner in the buffet most nights. The buffet was excellent with an enormous selection and variety of foods including middle eastern and sushi one night and seafood another. We tried the other restaurants for dinner but didn't rate either of them. My only criticism of the Sheraton would be that they don't do enough to cater for families and in particular for older kids.
Great experience, me and my daughter stayed for a week.. perfect location, great amenities.. too bad the internet wasn't "FREE". Also maybe a suggestion, Breakfast would be better if it was "changed a bit" every day... too repetitive.
Overall a good experience - the staff were very friendly and helpful. The bungalows were cleaned every day and fresh towels/bed linen regularly. Lots of great wardrobe space.
The kitchen could be slightly better equipped - maybe with a toaster, microwave and a few more cooking utensils but we managed.
When booking, ask for bungalows which get sun in the morning - we had one that was in shade for most of the day.
The hotel is situated in a quiet area close to some restaurants and a supermarket - all within 5 minutes walk. Further afield (Yumbo or the beach) you would probably prefer a cab drive which wouldn't cost more than €5 per trip.
The hotel itself is beautiful, clean and welcoming. Each Bungalow has it's own private entrance and two balconies (one upstairs and one downstairs). If sitting in the sun is what you're looking for, then pool area is under direct sunlight from about 9am right through to around 7pm (July). Of course, there are parasols, or your balconies, if you prefer to stay out of the sun ~ an even better way to stay out of the sun is to sit by the pool bar. Prices at the pool bar are very reasonable.
Above all, the staff are friendly, helpful and make you feel welcome. A big thank you to Melanie, Michal, Pawel and Waldemar for making our too short, one week stay, a memorable and happy one.
We will, and have, recommended Vista Bonita to friends.
Very pleased overall with the hotel, Food was good, day time activities by the pool was excellent , the day time / evening Rep was very pleasant and always got people involved. Rooms were comfortable and plenty of room. The day time Snacks could be improved by varying the selection. The bus service to the beach was good, although there was much as far as additional bars etc outside the hotel, (there was a Fun fair across the road, but only had a few bars and restaurants. A taxis was required for the nearest Shopping center. The family enjoyed the hotel / holiday and good value for the money spent.
Maspalomas is famous for its photogenic giant sand dunes which separate it from Playa del Inglés. This is a protected area, open only to walkers and camel safaris. The man-made resort lacks a central focus though the 65 metre-high Faro de Maspalomas, built 1886, is a striking landmark. La Charca, a seawater lagoon, hosts many species of migratory birds. Family attractions include two water parks and Holiday World funfair.
