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

My wife and I travel a ton. We were here in November 2013 and this place was absolutely beautiful. Very serene. We are from Chicago and this was a nice reprieve from the big city life. Awesome beach and scenery. You need to hit a grocery store on your from the airport to this place. If you want food walk... More

If you want a quiet and relaxing vacation, this is for you; quiet rooms and the beach is beautiful and clean. Only one restaurant, very pricey, if you want the buy the all inclusive meal plan it's 60 us. A day based on a week purchase plan. But the food is the same repetition and not much for selections, so... More

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
