Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We had one of the best vacation ever. We stayed at the Sheraton Hotel and were invited to a presentation on Bunganvillas Vacation Club. Buganvillas is beautiful, the landscaping, the pool, the rooms. it's immaculately clean. The pool has beautiful waterfalls! We tried the restaurants and the food was delicious! We had great service and the staff was very friendly. It's located close to restaurants, shops, grocery stores and the Malecon.We loved it so much that we purchased a time share at Bunganvillas and we are already planning to return next year. We made some great friends there too. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The room was great!

The best vacation ever for a family of five in 1 bedroom, 2 room unit. We traveled with our married daughter, husband and her 2 year old. This is our 6 th year of returning to this wonderful self indulging resort. This time in beginning of October when only a handful of guests were present at the beautiful pool and tropical palm gardens of the Buganvilias Resort. As typical, the pool waiter was available for purchase of overpriced drinks and snacks at poolside. A daily partly inclusive deal for drinks and lunch snack buffet was available for $480 pesos. A full meal lunch or dinner buffet was available at main hotel for $280 pesos with 20 % discount. Happily, the 2 bedroom unit with part kitchen allowed us self prepared breakfast and supper.
Our family enjoyed the nearly exclusive use of the resort pool, the children's wading area and the children's playroom. Often mood music wafted through the area from adjoining pool or the Vilitas open dining room. A sandy beach was next to main hotel and was roped off for privacy from local vendors. The rough beach near the water was walkable at mid tide and got better at next hotel front.
This resort does lack entertainment amenities such as nightly shows, a games room and other attractions in the lobby common area. The lobby area is very busy on Saturday afternoons. A guest committee informs consenting clients about membership opportunities. I suggest that the allowable check in period be extended from Friday to Saturday due to CDN air flight schedules.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor with ocean view.

The Buganvilias Vacation Club is a great place to spend one's vacation. It is conveniently and centrally located. The staff are very courteous and friendly, although the receptionists looked like they could use additional help checking people in because the line gets somewhat congested. Snacking and drinking by the poolside was superb. There is a fantastic spread of food, tropical drinks, juices, salads at the buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. I didn't eat anywhere else outside. What for? I had everything at home and it was delicious. The Mariachi
music at the Sunday brunch was so enlightening to my senses. One thing that saddened me was the fact that the "Mexican Fiesta" activity was cancelled which I look forward to see every time I visit. We spent two weeks there and on the second week, we were requested to change
to a different unit in an upper floor that did not have a dish washer, the refrigerator rocked back and forth and the air conditioning needed fixing. we reported the air conditioning malfunctioning and it was taken care of right away. Good response and service! The maid
service was good. The food room delivery service was excellent. The overall security is tops!
I can't hardly wait for my next vacation. I would further like to commend management and
staff for their fine service, friendliness and professionalism. They all seem so real and not
plastic at all!

Room Tip: Corner suites have a better view of the ocean.

We spent a week at the Buganvilias Vaction Club and will definitely return. Great location, withn waking distance of the Mega grocery store, across the street from the City Sports Facility and within walking distance of the Malecon. Nice grounds, VERY friendly and helpful staff. And we hear that rooms are being refurbished, which will make it an even nicer place to stay. (We were in Tower A, as time share exchange guests, 24th floor, nice balcony, nice views, but the room was a bit "tired",the air conditioning needed improvement and the water pressure in the shower was pretty poor). We did not do all inclusive--too many wonderful restaurants in Puerto Vallarata for dinner, and we are not breakfast eaters anyway.

Another great experience at the Buganvilias Resort. Everyone treats you like family. Jesus at the main door is great. Always there to help in any way. Front desk people are friendly and speak good English. Maids are the best. Never had any problems with rooms not being cleaned properly or something missing. I"ve stayed in other resorts and always have had some kind of issue with missing items or them not wanted to clean around your schedule. What ever you need, they get it. Great views of the sunset. We even had one of the pictures blown up and made into a framed piece for our living room. Good drinks at the pool. Just make sure you take care of the waiters. Great location. Easy walk to the downtown area. Once again, another great experience at the Sheraton Buganvilias. We'll be back in December!!!!

What a beautiful place to celebrate our wedding anniversary!! We checked in at the beautiful Buganvilias resort last July 7 and stayed there till the 14th. Sev and Ofie married on July 15, 1979 and together, with our friends Gil & Lorraine we enjoyed our grand vacation at the resort. The staff are all wonderful, the room is cleaned every day. Our room on the 13th floor (our lucky number because I'm born on Sept. 13) is overlooking the beach, the pool from our bedroom to the living room. We will definitely be back and bring along more friends.
Thanks to a wonderful week of stay!
Ofie & Sev

Room Tip: Our room on the 13th floor was perfect... quiet and accessible to everything we need. Very clean...
