What Past Guests Are Saying
Excellent apartment in good location
Wow. What a place. Sandra and Cecil certainly have the touch for creating a memorable holiday. The information we received before arrival was excellent. Booking was easy and instructions well presented.
We loved the apartment set in a complex with all amenities close by. An easy walk to the nearby supermarket and beaches. There was everything we needed from beach umbrellas, cool bags and a welcome pack.
Enjoyed meals on the balcony with views of the sea and pool. Would recommend to friends and family.

Fantastic Holiday at Vista Bonita
My husband, son (9) and I had a fantastic holiday at Vista Bonita. Fanstastic weather and no rain! The accomodation is first class, a real home from home and is spotlessly clean. Sandra and Cecil's attention to detail is great, from the fitted kitchen, to a gorgeous sitting/dining room, to a luxurious bathroom and bedroom. Everything you need is provided, the furnishings are of the highest quality and the needs of guests well thought out. We arrived quite late and Sandra had thoughtfully provided a welcome pack of food/drink which was much appreciated. The complex is lovely and only a few minutes walk from the beach , a good supermarket and some great local restaurants..Belmondo was our favourite. Within the complex there is a swimming pool( the apartment overlooks the pool) and tennis courts. The local beaches are very picturesque and there are some very good local walks. The apartment is ideally situated for visiting other villages and local attractions.We hired a car but other residents told us there is also a vey good bus service and local taxis are reasonably priced. We are looking forward to returning to Vista Bonita.

Awesome apt and location
This was our second time staying at Vista Bonita.We enjoyed it as much as last year.The apt is beautiful and has everything one could possibly need.The location is perfect. and lots of nice places nearby to dine out.It is quiet and we enjoyed our breakfast on the balcony every morning with the view of the sea.We want to return next year.
Sandra and Cecil have made a nice "home away from home" for their guests.They have done a great job and we highly recommend this accomodation.
5 star apartment in a wonderful location
As a previous guest had remarked in the guest book, Vista Bonita raises the bar for self catering accommodation. Well furnished and spotlessly clean the owners attention to detail is apparent as soon as you walk in. We felt extremely comfortable there and enjoyed the quiet almost rustic algarvian atmosphere of the area whether out walking or sitting on one of the two balconies sipping a drink and looking down toward the sea. The location is great for touring the algarve but no car is necessary if all you want to do is enjoy the local area. A supermarket , eight or ten restaurants and several sandy coves are all within 15-20 minutes strolling distance. Can't wait to go again!
Superb,beautifull,best holiday apartment we,VE stayed at.
This place is fantastic,from the moment we stepped into Cecil and Sandras place we just knew we were going to have a great holiday and we did.The apartment is superb,great views,a lovely pool area with ample room to relax .There are some great resturants within walking distance.A picturesque beach is a 5 minute walk down the road.Cecil and Sandra have covered every detail and i doubt very much that you will a better place to stay.

5-star in every way, perfect for rest and relaxation
Vista Bonita is very aptly named, the apartment overlooks a pool with the ocean a little further back. We booked the apartment on the strength of reviews on Tripadvisor, all of which were 5 star. Once we arrived that was no surprise! The apartment is beautifully decorated, clean and equipped with pretty much anything you would want to enjoy your holiday (beach towels, bag, parasols, tennis rackets...). We had an extremely relaxing week soaking up the sun. This apartment raises the bar for self-catered accommodation!
Exceeded all expectations!
We spent a memorable week at Vista Bonita. It was by the far the best self-catering apartment we have ever stayed in and was kitted out with everything you could possibly need and more. The apartment itself is luxurious and well worth the cost. We would love to return!

We spent two weeks in May and loved the apt. It was beautifully furnished,and had everything we could possibly need. Sandra made everything so easy and was always helpful .A very lovely lady. We loved the location and every morning having breakfast over looking the sea.The area is quiet and people are friendly. Were were so happy with our trip the once we arrived home in Canada we immediately booked for next year.
Everything was made so easy, from the booking of the apartment & the transfer to the apartment. Any questions we had were dealt with straight away.
The apartment ...wow,5 star for sure.
Beautifully decorated & furnished, spotlessly clean, Well thought out, everything you need is there.
The surrounding area is picture postcard, beautiful.. wonderful beaches, a walk away,nice & clean.
Super market nearby had all we needed.
Our favourite place to eat was a lovely Italian.. gorgeous food & wine..yum yum.
The best thing was how comfortable & relaxed we felt in the luxurious apartment.. the least..was we couldnt stay longer!!
We wanted for nothing while we stayed at this lovely apartment. The attention to detail was excellent. In a quiet location but still with plenty of choices to eat out and a well-stocked supermarket within walking distance.

We were first time in Portugal and we spent wonderful holiday at Vista Bonita. Everything was more than perfect, apartement was fantastic, very cleen, very well equipped, nice area, not far to the see, nice view from balcony.Whole complex is relaxing.
The welcome pack was very appreciated after long way.
For sure, we will recomend Vista Bonita to our friends.
Best self catering holiday I have ever been on!!!
As soon as I walked through the door I knew I had made the right choice, staying in such a luxurious apartment. I usually holiday in luxury hotels, as I never thought that self catering apartments would compare. Everything you could possibly want was available, from a bottle opener to bathrobes & slippers.
I was impressed with all the information on where to visit, where to eat & drink and even where the best places where to sunbathe.
After a long delay at the airport, the welcome pack was very much appreciated, especially the beer & wine!
I have recommended Vista Bonita to many friends and look forward to returning sometime soon.

Fantastic Holiday Location and apartment
The apartment is absolutely fantastic it is well equipped and very clean, with a lovely view from the balcony, it is very comfortable feels like home from home. You are greeted with a welcome pack of all essentials which is much appreciated after your journey. All the little touches like bathrobes and slippers make you feel special. The complex is relaxing with restaurants, bars and the beach all within walking distance,so no need for a hire car. Security guards patrol throughout the night which is reassuring too. Sandra & Cecil always willing to help and sort out any problems although we have never had any apart from not wanting to leave!! Have stayed here 2 years running and intend to continue going back as much as we can.Locals are friendly and weather very good.

Wonderful relaxing and first rate
When we decided that we would like to visit the algarve region of Portugal as our vacation destination this year, we searched and found this condo Vista Bonita on Trip advisor. We were impressed with the photos and positive comments and contacted Sandra and Cecil to arrange for 10 days. When we entered the apartment, the aura of this stunning modern apartment with a truly almost breath taking view was much more than then what the Trip advisor web site captured.
The attention to detail by the owners was very apparent, from the welcome and information package of the area to the little amentities such as internet connection, the library of books, collection of Cd's and Dvd's plus the house coats and slippers.
The surrounding area the condo is almost rural yet so serene, yet well appointed with good restaurants and beaches. We were truly able to relax and recharge our lives.
Being from a world renowned tourist area ourselves, we tend to be excited at what other tourist areas have to offer in natural beauty, attractions and hospitality.
We found the algarve area to be world class.
Thank you again to Cecil and Sandra for your great hospitality... and we plan to return.

Great to hear you had a lovely holiday. You will be guaranteed a very warm welcome, should you return in the future!

We expected a great place from the reviews that we read but it surpassed our expections. The decor of the apartment was beautiful. Everything was in the apartment that one could possibly want. There are so many added touches. It is very peaceful to sit on one of the balconies and look at the ocean of the pool below. It is a short stroll to the beach, grocery store, or restaurants. Can't wait to go back!

A high quality appartment, with every essential item required, p
Entering Bon Vista you are immediately impressed with the spacious layout of the accommodation and the high quality of the furnishings. The kitchen is fully equipped with every modern appliance supplying everything required by the most discerning chef. The bedroom and lounge have separate balconies both facing south allowing sunshine all day, with views towards the sea. On the 1st floor of a well designed complex (only 2 storeys high),with ample parking. Close to a good choice of restaurants. Cliff walks and beaches in easy reach. Excellent "Information" book and maps.

5 star relaxation
outstanding from start to finish, home from home !The owners service matches this high quality apartment, nothing is too much for her in her quest to give you a great relaxing holiday.The apartment is superbly equipped with plentiful information on what to do in the area. The balcony sea view is perfect whilst dining alfresco. Porches & the surrounding area are pretty laidback, you do not even need a car if you are happy to walk for a maximum 20 minutes, beaches,restaurants, bars & shops are all within 5-20 minutes walking distance, taxis are also available with friendly local drivers.. The best thing I can say is that the apartment is probably better equipped than your home which together with the seaview ensures a relaxing stress free holiday !

Vista Bonita - A memory to savour for life
Without question a real 5* find. Sandra and Cecil have really pushed the boat out to make this apartment comfortable, stunning, and fully equipped with everythingyou could ever need from a holiday let. Booking is easy and the information offered is practical and useful.Views from the apartment are magnificent especially from the balcony looking to the ocean a few minutes walk away. The whole area although quiet is lovely and the locals are really friendly especially at the local bars and restaurents. If you want to have a wonderfully relaxing holiday and simply 'Chill' then this is the place for you. I can't wait to go back.

so much more than a beautiful view
The apartment is a real find and we have just come back from our second visit.
It is modern, spacious and extremely comfortable. The kitchen is really well equipped, the bathroom bright and clean. There is plenty of storage space in the bedroom and a very comfortable double bed. The balconies look out over the pool and to the sea beyond, it is lovely spending evenings enjoying a meal al fresco and watching the stars come out.
The pool and outside areas are very well maintained. It is a real bonus to have your own sunbeds so none of the usual dawn dash to put towels on beds!.
There are a number of bars and restaurants around. A short walk takes you to a very nice Italian restaurant, and there are bars and restaurants down the hill towards the beach. There is a large supermarket not too far away.
Armacao de Pera is about 20 minutes walk away (mostly downhill) - the beach there goes on for miles. There are many lovely restaurants and bars to suit all tastes. It is most pedestrianised now so it is safe to stroll along by the sea.
There is a large supermarket not too far away.
The owners, Sandra and Cecil have gone the extra mile to make this apartment stunning..
It is tempting to keep this gem our little secret but this would not be fair to them.
Can't wait to go back - if you do decide to stay here I doubt you will be disappointed.
I have just come back from my third holiday at this beautful appartment in Porches on the Algarve. The appartment is absolutely stunning with every amenity you could possibly wish for. The Apartment has beautiful views of the sea, and the best part for me is sitting on the balcony chilling with a glass of wine taking in the peace and tranquility of the area. The owners bend over backwards to make your stay as perfect as possible with special touches that you usually only get in a five star hotel. There is a welcome pack to greet you, complimentary toiletries in the bathroom,a luxurious bathrobe and slippers for each guest and a comprehensive guide to help you enjoy your stay. The appartment has Sky television and full internet connection. The location is beautiful with a short walk to the local beach with it's lovely white sand. The beach boasts a fantastic fish restaurant, supplied by the local fisherman. As you stroll down to the beach you come across a quaint little white chapel, similar to the church in "Mama Mia" which adds to the charm of the location. When you do want to find bright lights, or the hustle and bustle of a larger town, a short drive soon takes you to the many restaurants and bars of the surrounding areas. I strongly recommend this appartment as your perfect holiday destination and I for one will be going again next year.
Wonderful romantic week in luxury
This was a lovely present for our 10th wedding anniversary and a truly romantic experience. We were overlooking the clear blue sea, with great restaurants nearby. When we got to the apartment we were thrilled at the standard of the apartment. All the little extras made it special, such as bathrobes, slippers and toiletries (truly luxurious). We really enjoyed going out to the nearby beach and the complex pool, both which were quiet and friendly. One night we stayed in with a fantastic takeaway a bottle of good wine, sat on the balcony and watched the sun set listening to the great selection of CDs provided in the flat. My wife is nagging me to take her back next near!!
Wonderful apartment in quiet area of Algarve, but still close enough to be within walking distance of a number of bars and restaurants.
Fantastic views from balcony overlooking both pools and the sea.
Well equipped with great attention to detail.
