Having been at the Buenaventura for the 4th time in 5 years there have been small changes that make staying at the Buenaventura a plus. As a disabled traveller the access to the bathrooms by the adult pool has made it easier for myself to access. The sidewalks outside the resort to the Malecon all have ramps which is a... More

My husband and I arrived at Buenaventura Hotel Dec 11th. It is an older hotel so the rooms are very basic but adequate. We had a partial ocean view but the price could not be beat. The location is great, a short walk to the Malecon. The food was exceptionally good, very tasty and plenty of variety. The staff were... More

Clean grounds but dated. Desperately needs to be updated and it could be a great property! Really good staff but building, rooms, facilities are old and dated. Rooms are 1980's Inclusive but why would I eat inclusive food when I'm in Puerto Vallarta and can easily eat terrific, local and inexpensive food? I did eat breakfast one day--Average/below sorta food... More

It's not quite "GRAND", nor do I really see it as a Spa, but for my time and money this place was very nice and convenient. I cant say that there was anything here that I didn't like. It all depends on what you are looking for. This AI resort offers everything that the mega resorts down the road offer.... More

We stayed for 9 nights (10 days). We had a wonderful experience. Very nice friendly staff. We got an ocean view room with an amazing view, especially of the sunsets every evening. It seems many people complain of this hotel. Yes it is an older hotel, but it is clean and well kept, remodeling is always on going. The very... More

I have been to many resorts and this by far offered much less then I got at a 3.5 star. The buffet was very small then most resorts. They do not offer a pasta station for the picky eaters that don't like the days buffet selection. There is no snacks offered after hours. Once the buffet closes that's it, you... More

I am shocked that there aren’t many negative reviews about this place. My family and I just stayed at this resort from November 1, 2014- November 7, 2014 (due to a wedding we were invited to). We enjoy travelling frequently, and I can honestly say that I expect SO much more from a resort of this rating- even in Mexico.... More

This was a good resort for its rating. The staff was very good and the location is ideal if you want to be near PV. The biggest downfall is the food. Jorge that keeps the drinks coming poolside is the best! His service and smile can't be beat!! Nice beach too
