The staff are very friendly and attentive. There are very few activities, and that was fine with us. the views were stunning, and the... More

Rancho Banderas has the best staff in the world. Unfortunately, the resort itself is very tired. It only has one pool, which needs to be better maintained. The water is clear and wonderful, but there were tiles missing and it was small for the size of the resort. I can't imagine everyone could be accommodated during the high season. We... More

Just back from great week at Rancho Banderas, this was the 2nd week of our visit, we end our vacation here because it is a small resort, quiet, and most beautiful. Staff is great and cant do enough for you, food is wonderful. The views are endless and some of the best sunsets you will ever see.

Ok, first off, let me say that providing a written report on ANYTHING is not my 'thing'. So, the fact that I am doing this the day after we have returned from this wonderful place should tell you something! We arrived on a Friday, apparently as a huge wedding party was arriving.. Galileo was our greeting host.. he was definitely... More

My wife and I just returned from 7 nights at Rancho Banderas. We had a two bedroom with a side view of the ocean. It was supposed to be a partially renovated room. It did have a flat screen TV in the living room and the larger bedroom. No TV at all in smaller bedroom. The couch was pretty used... More

My family enjoyed a week at the resort and had a wonderful time. We were however disappointed that the resort had so much "American food" and limited Mexican food. My kids don't really enjoy mac and cheese, hot dogs, pizza or pasta with butter and I am a vegetarian and the menu is very limited there too so I ended... More

We are not city dwellers and prefer resorts out of the bustle of the city. This was a good choice for that. The pool area was crowded, but the beach was great (Beware, the surf can hurt you!). Internet was very poor, but housekeeping was very good. Don't be scared of the geckos or their sounds! They each the other... More

If you want some beautiful sunsets, the best beach to walk in the world and the quiet and peacefulness of a boutique like resort than this is for you. The staff is most accommodating and friendly and Carmen gives the best massages you could ask for. They welcome me home each year that I go and I have been going... More
