Primary reason for low rating is it is improperly rated and overly priced. In its current condition, should be a 2 star rated hotel and should charge not more then $99 per night at the most. While it is comfortable, rooms style is very dated... 80's-90's, tv is big old box type without a remote, the ceiling exhaust fans...are from... More

Well, I don't even know how to begin. Fact is this is an old hotel, with old rooms and bad services. This is a tourism hotel so if you are looking for a cheap place to hang around with your friends and enjoy the 2 pools, that's OK. If you have a big family and are looking for a budget... More

We booked a room at the hotel which was pretty nice and in good condition, the grounds and pools were also in good shape. The biggest complaint I have is the price. In my opinion this hotel is over priced. Our room was comfortable and had plenty of space but the kitchen area was missing a stovetop or any other... More

10 years ago, Buganvillas lived up to its reputation of a 5 star hotel but during our visit in Dec. 2014, we were disappointed since we arrived at 2: 15 pm on Dec. 28, 2014. After touring the Jesuit Missions & riding for 6 hours in a van, we arrived at the Hotel's reception where the four of us had... More

I stayed here in October 2013 for a business visit. Everyday the staff would come by and clean and it was like entering a brand new hotel room each evening upon my return. The food was good with a reasonable variety of items to choose from and the pool was most welcome on the warm evenings. I would stay here... More
