This place grows on you. Choosing between here and Secrets for our first visit to PV, we decided to go with this cheaper option for a short four night vacation. Our goal was to explore PV so this location was superior. Our room was clean and fresh smelling (no mold) but was on the busy street. It was noisy as... More

My review would be similar to last year - the hotel is in need of upgrading but the awesome staff and location made us choose it again this year. I can't say enough good things about Fausto, Eduardo, Carlos, Joel and Bruno! They make us want to go back again next year! I emailed the hotel 2 weeks prior to... More

Great place to stay. Needs a bit of upgrade on the food and would be nice to get a room with a queen bed instead of 2 doubles and a balcony, otherwise it's great, small, easy to get around, great service on the beach.,and close to the malecon. Always something to do.

Why bother requesting a queen or a king size bed and or an ocean view room. we've never got either one, but paid for ocean view. Been there 3 times now and haven't yet got a room that we requested yet.

Highly recommend this hotel. Location was great. Walking distance or short cab ride to just about everything. Clean and well maintained, courteous staff. Beds were extra firm and food was typical (mediocre to average). Don't get caught in the hype of the "travel rewards" presentation, just another version of time share. City tour was not worth the money - had... More

The service people are great. The food and drink quality and variety are very poor.Beach good to walk on. Sometimes big waves. Water murky. No snorkeling. Very few kayaks and paddles broken so not available when wanted

We were at the BuenaVentura during the first two weeks of Feb 2015. We were very happy with everything about this resort. The location is wonderful - close to the Malecon and the old town so there are a lot of "off resort" things to do. The Resort is small enough that everyone gets to know staff and there is... More
