Really enjoyed my stay for one night. Friendly, clean super comfortable bed and room. Beautiful pools and jacuzzi. Plenty of space and places to meet and mingle with guests. Complimentary breakfast and coffee were a nice inclusion in the room rate. Would definitely come back to stay here next visit.

Property's Favourite Review
Suppose you are looking to have a fun time at a Gay resort, while cleanliness and being respected are very important to you. In that case, Vista Grande Resort is the choice! My friend and I stayed at this resort for 3 nights, and it was one of my best choices I have ever made. From the beginning, Calvin greeted us at the property, and he checked us in at 11 AM. , which was fantastic. I've worked in hospitality, and it is not easy to have a room ready at that time. Calvin was super friendly and answered all of our questions. He showed us the entire property, and we literally had no questions by the time we walked into the room. The room was completely renovated and nicely designed. I'm telling you, it was way nicer than the photos you see here! It was spotless and clean and smelled good (The room smell is so important to me when I walk in the room). Comfortable king beds were my favorite. Although we were right next to the pool and had a great view, it was tranquil and peaceful. We had a kitchen with all you need to cook and plates and utensils. A brand new big fridge, stovetop oven, microwave, coffee maker, and even a toaster! The pool was heated 24/7 and VERY CLEAN! The housekeeper Francisco was so friendly, and he gave us anything we needed immediately! We literally didn't wait for anything. I was quite surprised the next morning when my friend told me they serve free breakfast! They served continental breakfast. The sausage and egg sandwich the second morning was delicious, even better than Starbucks! I mean it. Also, the coffee was available 24hours a day. The check out was swift, and again, we didn't wait a second. Tom, the General Manager, was super friendly like the rest of the staff and he ensured our stay was enjoyable! He even offered us to stay as long as we needed to check out, and he said they didn't need the room, so there was no rush; it was very generous. Overall, I give 10 out of 10 for my stay, and I am delighted for what I paid at this resort. You won't regret it!

What a wonderful resort! It was like being in a tropical oasis. Tom and Max and the entire staff was absolutely the best! One morning Tom treated everyone to home made banana bread! Delicious! The resort was super clean and the staff helped with anything that was needed.We can’t wait for our next trip to Vista Grande!

I cannot say enough positive about the Vista Grande. Tom the manager is fantastic and makes sure your stay is perfect. Robert the owner and all the staff create not just a stay but an experience. Great breakfast! Clean and well maintained. We have stayed at many gay resorts in PS this one tops them all!

Just returned from a week at the Vista Grande. It is an amazing property, beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained. We were in the royal waterfall suite and it was huge! Recently renovated and looking fantastic. Breakfast delivered daily with great choices. They will come around and see if you want to order lunch from a great local place and then deliver it to you in your room or at the pool, so no need to run out to get something. The pools, steam room, and hot tub were all in perfect condition and tons of fun. This is the resort for anyone who wants to have some fun - great mix of guys of all ages - but still have a high end fun, relaxing place to stay. We cannot say enough great things about the staff. They were all always so warm, friendly, and on top of everything. You really felt like they were inviting you inter their home. Believe me, this place stands out as far above the competing gay resorts in the area.
