“Very Good,But Not Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The hotels club level rooms are excellent and well equipped.The internet is not very good as it is good for a few minutes and then very slow. The club lounge during cocktail hours is pitiful. The only refreshments available are red wine,white wine,sparkling wine and tap water. No mineral water,juices or sodas.The snacks were old and stale. The guacamole turned black and was crusted.Very nice pool area and grounds are kept clean. Excellent concierge. This is more of a convention type hotel.

Room Tip: Corner room high floor

My husband and I have been going to Vallarta since we were kids. You get a little bit of everything in Vallarta. Now, that we’re adults we love staying at the Sheraton Resort all the time we go visit. We are very comfortable with their customer service, cleanliness, amenities, location and its BEAUTIFUL view to the ocean. We love Puerto Vallarta so much & the Sheraton that we both decided to get married there in Dec. 29, 2012. It was a Dream Come True! It was an AMAZING experience and adventure for us and all of our guests. The resort is only a 15 minute walk to downtown Vallarta or a 5 minute bus ride for 8 pesos. The weather is great all year long, hot between May – November, it gets a bit cooler in December.

Room Tip: All high levels have an amazing ocean view. But, the higher the the better ; )

Could go on for paragraphs but here are the bullet points of why this hotel is one of the worst stays ever:

1. Hair in shower on arrival
2. Aggressive timeshare employees on every single day of our five day trip, loudly hard selling the free breakfast timeshare tour
3. 5:15 am room service pounding on the door, leaving only after we told them three times we never ordered anything (we'd been fast asleep!) followed by phone call to insist we'd ordered a burger and vodka
4. Tired worn dated rooms, towels with stains on them, and we found dead moths and a dead cockroach after the cleaning lady had come through and cleaned
5. Horrible service staff. Horrendous food in main dining area.
6. Nonstop loud techno music by the pool all day. Not relaxing.
7. Over served drunken local tourists sexually harassing me and a few other girls, not only did the bartenders do NOTHING about it, but they kept serving them more beers. I have never seem drunker people and this was outrageous.

In all fairness, the concierge was very apologetic, the valet guys are great and super super helpful, and the front desk staff when we checked in were lovely. Otherwise we wish more than anything that we'd just stayed the week in sayulita.

We will NEVER return.

We had a great time staying at the Sheraton Buganvilias while attending the International Sport Classic. Our suite was really clean and very roomy. The hotel staff were friendly and the maids did an amazing job cleaning our room every day. The bedroom was so comfortable that my boyfriend and I slept for almost 11 hours most nights! We would definitely stay at this hotel again!

We went for the Sports Classic this year for the first time and had a great stay at the Sheraton. Despite being a large resort, it felt incredibly serene, especially in the chairs right on the beach. Include in that the breakfast, snacks and cocktails on the 23rd floor and great service everywhere we went. We even organized a seminar in one of their function rooms and the hotel staff were very helpful. Location is also good - a short cab ride to old town.

Room Tip: If you stay on one of the club levels (21-23 floor) you not only have a fantastic view, but access t...

This is a repeat visit and it was equally as wonderful as the first! The staff are incredible - they smile a lot and are genuine in wanting to help, serve and accomodate you in any way they can. Clean, spacious rooms and very nice decor without being over the top fancy. Two lovely pools and right on the beach. If you get a chance to enjoy the breakfast and snacks in the 23rd floor lounge, you will be thrilled with Amalfo and Juan's personalized and friendly service. Two thumbs up to the owner for the great staff, reasonable prices and high quality service.

Room Tip: Any room facing the water. It is worth the extra to pay for the breakfast/afternoon snacks in the u...

Dear guests from Vancouver:

It was rewarding reading your kindly remarks on our resort premises and Club accommodations, and most important, your compliment for our butler services. Arnulfo and Juan who provided you a warm and caring service during your stay will appreciate your recognition. I will make sure they will receive a copy of your comments which will encourage them to keep up with the high grade service standards we all strive for.

Thank you for sharing your insight with us.

We come every year for the International Sports Classic event and are always treated wonderfully. The hotel services and amenities are excellent. We have recently travelled to other places and always come back to Sheraton Buganvilias - its the best.

Room Tip: Book early for Sports Classic - the hotel is 100% full and you could miss out!
