Arrived from the PV Airport via taxi (800 pesos) .. We're welcomed by the security guard which is a nice touch. Have been coming to this resort for a number of years( member). The usual cast of characters are here, from Alberto welcoming greetings, Monica, Juan, David at the front. Wait staff, Memo, Alexis, Auturo, Flora the Maitre'd, Irene, and... More

This resort has steadily declined over the years in management, attitude of management and front desk and atmosphere. They welcome you "home", however it no longer feels like it used to. We have been coming here since it was built always hoping in recent years that there will be changed to the good The beach and view at Rancho Banderas... More

A smaller resort with a nice beach. Within ten, fifteen minutes away from the marina in La Cruz which is nice if you want to visit the market on Sundays and some nice restaurants on the warf. A bit of a schlepp if you want to go to Puerto Nuevo or Porto V for dinner. The restaurant at the resort... More

Just returned from one week at Rancho Banderas, using an Interval International timeshare exchange. I loved that this resort is much smaller than my home resort in Nuevo Vallarta. The gardens are beautiful, the location is surrounded by lush jungle (it's a big more green than NV). The room was nicely decorated with all the amenities I needed. Room 309... More

1st time travelers to R.B, and 2nd time to the Puerto Vallarta area. My wife and I stayed in early Nov. 2015 on an II exchange, in a 1 BR unit, ground level, overlooking manicured gardens, pool area with partial ocean view. Our 5 star rating reflects our total experience. Location: NW of PV and airport, 8.4 km west of... More

Perhaps we are too spoiled having spent several great vacations at another Marival property, Marival Residences in Nuevo Vallarta, but we were a bit disappointed in this property. Yes, the views are beautiful and so are the grounds and the food was very good, but the rooms are really outdated and thankfully they had a beautiful patio with a view... More

We spent the week after thanksgiving at Rancho Banderas vacation villas. The grounds were immaculate, the staff fabulous and the entire experience very relaxing. We loved the quiet beauty and everything about our stay. We enjoyed every meal we had. I really appreciated the young man in the bar at 7am. He was always happy to make an espresso or... More

Despite the 'threat' of Hurricane Patricia - another wonderful holiday at our favorite mexican resort. Oct 24-31/2015. First off - we have been owners at Rancho Banderas since 1998. This was our 10th holiday, but the first time we've visited outside of December/January. Thank goodness the storm missed the region and had limited impact on the wonderful people who work... More
