The order of our criteria was firstly BEACH, secondly, location to malecon and old town, and the rest was just clean and reasonably good service. The Buenaventura met ALL of our expectations. (BTW, we have travelled to many locations in Mexico, both A/I and a la carte, so have comparisons)
BEACH: Five out of five - went swimming in the ocean every day
LOCATION: Five out of five - Walked every day to old town and buses ran a short block away and were very easy to ride; meaning getting directions etc.
FOOD: Average - some was good. Compared to some other a/i resorts, not as much variety, but hey, you get what you pay for. If you want 5*, then pay for it !!
SERVICE: Absolutely outstanding !! We did not encounter one staff member who was surly or uncooperative. They all went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Special mention to Paloma our concierge; and our waiters especially Joel.
ROOMS: Average - totally adequate and met our needs. We had plenty of hot water, good pressure, a/c worked great - what else does one need !
RESORT SIZE: We chose this resort also for its size. We prefer this to the large monolithic 800 room resorts where one has to walk miles to get to facilities, beach, etc.
All in all - we would definitely return to the Buenaventura if visiting PV again.
