We arrived last Friday, welcomed so nicely and we were able to check in early, thank goodness moving from one resort to another and had perishables that needed to be refrigerated. Beautiful grounds and very well kept up. Food at the restaurant is good but haven't eaten there much. Room service I did not enjoy. BBQ chicken breast was a... More

We've been to Puerto Vallarta twice before, staying in at a resort in PV. Found Rancho Banderas through Interval exchange and were a little concerned about the "remoteness." Believing this to be our last trip to the Banderas Bay area, we wanted to make the most of it and rented a car (rented from Gecko Rentals in Bucerias--100% recommend!) A... More

We loved our stay at Rancho Banderas. We traded through Interval and were not unhappy with our selection. The room was spacious with local accents but modern mini-kitchen and electronics and A/C in both the bedroom and living room. The balcony had a built in lounge as well as table and chairs. We spent many late afternoons looking out over... More

Just returned from Rancho Banderas. Don't mind a quiet resort but this place is a little to quiet. Some upbeat music around the pool during the day would be great. To much like a retirement home and god forbid if you sit at the wrong table. The regulars that go there will ask you to move. There were a couple... More
