We went to Hotel Buena Vista in April 2006 to celebrate my 40th birthday. My husband, two children (ages 4 and 6), my brother-in-law, sister and her partner came. Whenever we go on vacation we look to be off the beaten path and to have something of an adventure. That is exactly what we got here. The hotel could not be in a more beautiful spot. The beach is gorgeous, sandy, clean AND you can swim in the sea. That is not possible in other areas of cabo.
The hotel grounds are lovely. The pool was fantastic. The swim-up bar was nice to have and eating lunch around the pool was great. The rooms are fine. They are nothing fancy, but we spend so little time in our rooms we don't care. They were clean and the beds were comfortable.
FYI: More than just hotel guests use the pool. Locals, meaning expats from the U.S., buy a membership and use it something like a "club." So do area villa owners. It was never really crowded at the pool, but this fact is nice to know. Everyone was very friendly.
The hotel is really set up for fishermen. We did not take a fishing trip, but did enjoy watching the boats come in and seeing what they caught. My husband is a fly-fisherman and arranged a trip for that but the weather did not cooperate and he could not do the trip.
Through the hotel we arranged a day trip to some springs in the mountains (El Chorro Hike and Swim Tour). It was a gorgeous drive and a fun hike to the pools. Swimming in the natural pools was very fun, especially for the kids.
The hotel staff was accomodating. Nobody was overly friendly, but everyone was nice enough and we always got what we wanted/needed.
The food at the restaurant is just OK. The men in our group thought the food was great. The women in the group felt it was lacking in fresh fruits and vegetables. We're pretty healthful eaters and were craving huge salads by the end of the trip. Breakfast and lunch were definitely better than the dinners. The staff will go off the menu for you and/or you can order lunch items during dinner. I often did that because I did really enjoy the fish tacos.
If you are looking to get away from it all and can entertain yourself with a beach, pool and nature, then this is the spot for you. We are going back again this April!
