We were staying close by in a private house. We had "amigos" privileges through our friends which allowed us to use the pool and get a discount on food and drink but any visitor can buy a day or weekly pass. I have been here in Baja approximately 8-9 times and I love the pool at the Buena Vista. You... More

Plus: Beautiful grounds and beach area. Very friendly, helpful staff. Excellent maid service. Peaceful (off season). Con: isolated. Small fishing village about 3 miles away with limited good food choices (almost no fish!). Rooms are stark, small, outdated, with THIN walls. No hair dryer, TV, etc. Extremely limited menu in restaurant (good food). Minimal bar. Surrounding area is pretty run... More

We enjoyed three days of R & R at Hotel Buena Vista this past weekend. Lovely location, grounds beautifully kept and a wonderful warm team of staff members. We used the American food plan which provided good food in an outstanding area of the resort, overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Would certainly return again.

Wife and I took a day trip from Cabo to the East Cape side. We found this little hidden resort and decided to have lunch. The Chef (Reubin) came out to our table to explain day specials. He also mentioned that if you bring your catch he will cook it for you. Reubin is second to none on preparing a... More

If you are looking for a quiet,beautiful,affordable Baja beach hotel then this is the place! We felt like family when we left, absolutely everything about this place was great. We will definitely return!

Wanted to try this Resort off season since it's packed during the summer high season. I especially wanted to try the mineral spring water in the pool and spa that is advertised on the website. Transportation pickup was arranged by the resort (fee) and was very convenient. We arrived fairly late and were shown to our room by a friendly... More

Hotel Buena Vista is a family owned fishing resort that myself and a group of friends have been going to for years. The staff is helpful and friendly and care about your stay and experience. If your looking for jet skis and bikinis, this is not the really the place for you. If your looking for simple accomodations where TV... More

We went for the fishing but enjoyed the relaxing even more. Fishing was OK- it would have been a lot better if our captain/mate were a bit friendlier and didn't throw all of their garbage/plastic overboard into the pristine Sea of Cortez, from which they make their living. The family-style food was quite good, but the bag lunches they packed... More

20 years ago, we started staying at Buena Vista Beach Resort. We met the staff and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are dated. Bungalow type, if you are looking for high end, Cabo type, forget it. This is a family run business. Chuy Valdez started this years ago and family continues. However, the Restaurant , new chef, and the wonderful... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights here after reading how "pet friendly" they were and we selected the meal plan (don't do it). They have a pet policy that states you must keep your pets on a leash in public areas and even mentions food areas but on the beach they can be off the leash. Perfect. So we... More
