Wonderful pool, beaches, and sunsets. Rooms are a little dated and clean. Please use the in-room safe as the cleaning staff clean more than the rooms. We had high-end perfumes and some money was taken. The concierge will promise you all sorts of stuff for the timeshare tour, but if you don't buy you won't get all promised to you.... More

If you ever wanted to do an all-inclusive that doesn’t feel like one, book a trip to Rancho Banderas. There’s a sedate feeling here which could be conceived as “boring, no action” so if relaxed is not your thing, try Cancun or Cabo. My wife and I traveled here in Nov 2015 and we were not sure what to expect.... More

Took our family of 5 for one week. Had 2 rooms, both were exceptional. Clean, great view of the ocean/pool and best of all everything worked including the air conditioning which we needed in hot July. The staff was wonderful and the restaurant even though there is only one had both theme buffets and menu choices each night. We felt... More

As part of the Marival group, we had a very high expectation. We have stayed at the Marival Resort in NUEVO VALLARTA many times and at the Residence once. While Rancho Banderas is nice, it is not up to the Marival standards we have grown to love. SUMMARY Staff have been nice but not over the top. Room has a... More

After checking in and listing our names on the paperwork, a few days in, my daughter was contacted through Facebook by an employee of the resort that she'd never met. It was most disturbing to know that this person, who worked the front desk, looked up our information to obtain her name and contact her. In this day and age,... More

We loved everything about Rancho Banderas. The suites were spacious and spotlessly clean, the views were amazing and the property is just lovely. We had a two bedroom, two bath suite with a huge balcony area overlooking the bay. the view to the Marietas Islands was fantastic. The kitchen and living areas were spacious and well equipped. There is a... More

This is the second time we have visited this resort, the last time was Sept/Oct last year. We flew into Puerto Vallarta and used the official taxi service from the airport (900 MP) but going back was only 400MP with tip. It is a small resort, quiet, very clean and relaxing. This is not a loud party resort. The resort... More

I have a family of 5, with 3 teenagers, and this is hands down the best vacation experience we have ever had! We chose to do the all inclusive with the 3 bedroom/3 bathroom room and paid extra for the "ocean view" (well worth the extra cost!) The service provided by EVERYONE on the resort can only be described as... More

We just got back from Ranch Banderas. Our room had an amazing view of the ocean and picture perfect sunsets. The room itself was a little tired and could use some TLC. The staff was great.

We just got back from a wonderful week at this spectacular all inclusive resort. I'm still in awe of the high quality of service, and the resort itself, at just a reasonable price! There were 7 of us, including one child and a baby. Each one of us enjoyed it thoroughly! We will probably return.
