Exceptional value if you want a home away from home. You are treated like family with as much attention as you like or don't like. The place is clean, safe, hot water works all the time, and air conditioning when you need it. This was my second stay. March was the first. Wonderful if you are going to dive with Island Scuba too. Hoses are provided for rinsing and taking care of my gear.
I'm already planning the next trip!!!! Thanks Barbara & Bonita, see you again soon.

Villa Bonita is located in a wonderful area of Guanica a short walk to the beach. The accomodations were great clean and comfortable. Barbara met our every need playing most tour director in answering our many questions reagarding where to do and what to see. We spent time in a neighboring town Parguera. Where we took a bio-luminesent bay tour. We went to a wonderful Rum Bar! Ask Barb she can tell you how to get there it was amazing. The boys fished and had a huge catch of Dorado.

We spend two days in Ensenada (next time will be more) to go dive with Island Scuba. Barbara was really friendly, the room is large and well furnitured. Great view on the see.
There is no problem to wash up wetsuits and all the diving equipment.
For divers definitely the best choice to stay in villa Bonita and go dive on the Wall dive with Island Scuba.

My husband and I stayed in the larger area of this house with 4 other friends. We had a great time. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The manager was extremely helpful and friendly. She knew everything about the area and gave us many great suggestions of where to eat and what to see. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

“We loved Playa Bonita!”
Reviewed 23 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

We were a group of 3 couples traveling together. Playa Bonita was the perfect place for us to stay. It is a tri-level. The bottom level is where Barbara, the manager lives, the top level has a small studio. We stayed on the second level. It had a full kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a very large outside deck. The bedrooms each had an airconditioner.

Guanica is very small and not a big tourist spot. We loved it because we are divers and there is a great dive company 1 block from the house. There are lots of great places to explore in this area as well. The beach is 1 block away. There is hiking in the dry forest a few miles away, snorkling, kyaking, historic towns to explore, a cute little winery, and beautiful seanic drives.

Barbara was so friendly and helpful. She shared ideas of places to eat, shop, beach spots. She had an ice chest that we could borrow for excurtions, BBQ if we wanted to cook.

The house is not fancy but was clean, comfortable and in a great area if you are not looking for city life and crowds. The property is gated and had plenty of parking area. We wish we had stayed longer and will return here again!
