Stayed at The IFA Buenaventura for 7 nights in November. I always give my reviews on personal experiences and price paid. This is a huge hotel complex with extensive gardens. The check in was very busy however we only waited about 5 mins and the receptionist was very friendly. Our room was good with 2 single beds and a sofa... More

We stayed at this hotel on half board basis,which was a good choice for us. For unless you wish to stay the evening and watch mediocre, loud shows in a crowded space and have children who are entertained most afternoons, I think it better to have the choice of the numerous bars outside the hotel. We unfortunately had a room... More

I feel that many points have been said numerous times and it's hard to add anything new and helpful. However I still would like to accent the positives and again hopefully the customer relations personnel, who comment that things are being noted, might change those negatives for the better. The dedication and genuine love of their work shines through with... More

This hotel has hundreds of rooms and has two swimming pools. We stayed all inclusive and had good time. We arrived at 21.00 and the reception told us to go and have dinner before it closed which was very thoughtful. There is free Wi-Fi in the reception only. WiFi is available but is payable. We stayed in room with double... More
