Had an exceptional week at Rancho Banderas. The resort is in a fairly remote location but is easy to get to. It is very peaceful and beautiful and only has 49 rooms. It was a little crowded on the weekend(I think they have some kind of day pass) but quieter on weekdays. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The... More

Delicious, well presented food at Peppers. Great variety of dishes. Waitstaff are excellent, food and drinks served at the pool or at the beach. Grounds are beautiful but the unit needs to be updated with more comfortable furniture, especially the sofa/sofa bed. Also could use more seating in the living room. Fans would be a nice addition to the patio.... More

We really enjoyed Rancho Banderas. The hotel is clean and the grounds are beautiful. Food was great - we bought the meal plan and enjoyed the convenience of staying in but we also ate at other restaurants in Punta Mita and Sayulita. We rented a car from Gecko - great rate excellent service. Renting a car is key to getting... More

We enjoyed our time and Rancho Banderas and for the most part, we had a wonderful 12-night trip. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was the food situation. We got the all-inclusive plan and only booked here because we were assured that all meals were a-la-carte (I HATE buffets other than at breakfast). During our... More

Great family vacation spot. Relatively unspoiled and away from the mega hotel areas. We opted for the meal plan which turned out to be VERY well worth it with the range of options and constant stream of food and drink. Staff was very attentive, friendly and responsive.

Traveled with another couple to stay for a week on the time share that was owned by the other couple. We were excited because we were spending our 25 wedding anniversary and wanted a special week. We had a rental car so we could get around and that was great because this place is very secluded. That was nice because... More

Rancho Banderas turned out to be one of the most relaxing places we have stayed at in Mexico. The best part of our experience was the beautiful beach where we spent as much time as possible. The staff is so friendly and accommodating that we never has to wait much for service. The food was very good, and the menu... More

A little off the beaton track and fabulous. If you are looking for somewhere to relax and while away the time this is perfect. Lovely three tier infinity pool directly overlooking the beach. I would describe this as authentic Mexican with it's 'shabby chic/Bohemian' feel. Although it is only 15 years old it has that oldly worldly feeling. Our 1... More

This place is cute and right on the beach. It is an all inclusive so it takes the work out of finding places to eat. The pool area is fun and relaxing. The staff are attentive and friendly. The villas are large and air conditioned. The only thing I will mention is that there is no "night life" so if... More

This is my favorite place on earth! Yes! Rancho Banderas is located on Destillardos beach, a beautiful LONG stretch of white sandy beach. The pool is actually broken into 4 different areas divided by waterfalls. We remarked that this gives each area a cozy intimate feeling. The rooms are clean, well-appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed beginning each day with breakfast... More
