Great resort but whoever added a large low quality speaker on high volume blasting the pool area making it impossible to chat or relax, made a huge error. Everyone has a phone with headphones if they want to listen to music. Bad decision. It is a resort not a disco and most prefer to hear the waves vs loud music... More

We went to Rancho Banderas last year to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We were able to rent the Penthouse and had two other couples stay with us. From the moment we walked on to the grounds we were treated like we were family. Every meal was gourmet. The wait staff worked very hard to meet all our needs and... More

Took family to resort in March 2014. Here are the top 3 highlights and lowlights: Top: 1. Great Staff - kudos to Guillermo & Alberto for personalizing the experience. The team at the pool & restaurant were genuinely nice and service oriented. Top notch! 2. Beach - one of the nicest we have been to. Kids and adults had great... More

We had eight families with teenagers stay at this quaint resort and it was wonderful! Our unit was on the 3rd floor with a beautiful view of the ocean and cascading pools below. The place was very clean but definitely could use some updating in some areas (especially the exercise room - it had the basics, but equipment was tired.)... More

Just came back from a week at Rancho Banderas on April 4th and we found it more than wonderful. The beach was lovely, sand was soft, water was gorgeous and clean. Umbrellas and comfy chairs were very plentiful and the weather in full cooperation with sun and breezes all day long. This is a small resort, and we had a... More

What a beautiful resort! We are a family of 4 with two girls, ages 8 and 12. There were three cascading pools with water slides and full views of the ocean from many places on the resort. The food in the restaurant was excellent, and the service superb. The resort and beach were quiet. Quite remarkable for Mexico, I thought.... More

I just spent a week at the lovely Rancho Banderas, hitching a ride on a friend's time share. She has returned every year for four years and now I understand why- the resort is in a great location for relaxing and leaving the world behind, with a beautiful sandy beach and a great tri-level infinity pool. The resort is very... More

We chose Rancho Banderas because of the reviews. It is a very welcoming and friendly place in a fantastic location. Most of the staff is great, very helpful. The place is well cared for, comfortable and intimate. The only complaint I have is we paid extra for the premium liquor and that is not what we got. Make sure you... More

We stayed at Rancho Jan. 31-Feb. 14 It was our second visit and we loved it even more. It is peaceful and very quiet, great walks on the beach! The staff is professional and very friendly, the rooms are dated but spacious and charming. We can hardly wait until we go back

We have been owners (it’s a timeshare and resort) at Rancho Banderas for 11 years and finally got to stay here. We’re sorry we waited so long. The place is great and we had a wonderful time. Yes it is secluded and there are not too many activities. This would normally bother me because I like to be busy. But... More
