My husband and I have been to this hotel 4 times and have always thought of the Buenaventura as our home away from home. It has been 3 years since we were last at this resort, but just today I booked to come back with 6 family members in Jan. 2015. Everyone has booked their trips on our recommendation, and... More

This hotel is in a great location. Unfortunately, there is nothing Grand or resort-like about it. Hotel: it is old and needs some major updating. Rooms: Old. Floor Moldy. Outdated. I think owners think they can make some minor updates and call it a day but what's needed is a major overhaul! Pool/Beach: the towel service is ridiculous. They make... More

We just came back from a week in Puerto Vallarta, we meet family from Mexico City over there, this hotel has great location, excellent service, all the staff from belt boys, concierge, waitress, cooks, entertainment, housekeeping, maintenance, kids club, spa were very professional and friendly.

I made a list so that you can evaluate the hotel on your own. We stayed in two rooms that were far better than our friends, but still in desperate need of TLC. Also, the all-inclusive fees are horrendous considering the food and drink quality and lack of “inclusive” type amenities. Pros: Some great employees such as Fausto pool drink... More

We stayed at the Buenaventura Grand with family who go to Puerto Vallarta every year. Because they stay so often we trusted their judgement and booked a room without researching every. single. option. like I normally do when making reservations. While the amenities and food are nothing special, the value and location are pretty tough to beat. It was an... More

We were pleasantly surprised. We chose the hotel because of its location, a short walk to the Boardwalk and all the shops. The hotel is clean. The air conditioning worked perfectly. It is an older hotel and you see some wear an tear. Our grand daughters has a great time in the pools and on the beach. The food is... More

First let me start off by saying that if you want a 5 star resort for cheap price, this is not the place. With that being said, the Buenaventura Grand is a great deal for the price. The hotel is NOT a place to be quite and romantic, although they will try to accommodate any request you may have.This is... More
