“Relaxing”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you want a relaxing, chill out holiday, then Vista Bonita is the place to go. Fantastic apartment, beautiful beaches, great restaurants.
From start to finish we had a fantastic holiday. The apartment has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your holiday. It is decorated to a high standard and spotlessly clean, the bathrobes are a nice touch too. No need to pack beach towels, hair dryers and all the usual stuff! Everything is there for you, from beach umbrella, seats for the beach, cool bags, everything. The view from the balcony is amazing, just as the picture, if not better. The beach is only a short walk, about 4 minutes and is absolutely stunning! The supermarket is about a 10-15 minute walk and is well stocked. The local restaurants are great. We ate out a lot and never had any complaints, very reasonable prices. Belmondo is lovely. The food was fantastic. Try it on a Thursday night, they have a singer and if you like old crooners it will make your experience even better. We also had a brilliant meal at Arisol, next door to the pottery shop, across the road from the supermarket. Don't be put off by the decor , the food was great, as was the service, try the steak!. Couldn't fault anything and would definitely recommend to friends and family. Our only complaint was that we had to come home!!

“Fabulous retreat, location and accommodation”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

My sister and myself had a really wonderful holiday in the Algarve made all the more relaxing and memorable by the excellent accommodation that is Vista Bonita.
The apartment had everything you could possibly want and more.
It is situated in a fairly quiet location, 10 minutes walk to the beach, 15 minutes walk to the Intermarche supermarket and a half hour walk to the town of Armacao de Pera.
The pool and the grounds are beautifully maintained and the entire complex lends itself to a mainly relaxing experience. There are many things to do in the surrounding area and some lovely walks close to the complex. All in all a super apartment in a lovely complex in a beautiful area. The accommodation is first class.

“Another Fantastic Holiday”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is our third visit to Vista Bonita and another fantastic holiday. The apartment is as usual in pristine condition and the little finishing touches make it a real home from home. The complex , gardens and pool area are well maintained. Porches is a pretty little village with some lovely beaches and restaurants. We finished our holiday with a great meal at Belmondos!

“Fantastic stay at Vista Bonita”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our second visit and we had a fabulous time. The apartment and facilities are 5*. Sandra and Cecil really make this a home from home. Everything you need is provided. Porches is a lovely place to stay with beaches, walks and great restuarants in walking distance.

“5 Star Accommodation in a beautiful location!”
Reviewed 14 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had a fantastic week's stay at Vista Bonita, it was just like staying in a 5 star hotel, but without the 5 star prices!!! It was very much a home from home and Sandra couldn't have been more helpful. Porches has everything you need, beautiful beaches and some very nice bars and restaurants. We had a very chilled out week, just took the cool box and parasol down to the beach in the day and had a lovely meal out in the evenings or just sat on the beautiful balcony, couldn't recommend this place more. We didn't even need a car! Can't wait to return!!
