Our Opinion

The Buenaventura Grand is home to an excellent, friendly staff that take the time to look after their guests. The food and service is great, especially for a 3 star hotel. The beach at this hotel is quite rocky, but the big beautiful pool makes up for it. This resort is walking distance to downtown, so it's an excellent location! The Buenaventura has had renovations, adding 3 more restaurants and updating the d�cor to make it feel more classy. Guests at this hotel have unlimited access to the Hacienda Hotel.


An excellent location right within a short walk to dozens of Puerto Vallarta's best shops, restaurants and bars. The setting of this charming, informal hotel is ideal; beachfront, at the edge of downtown. Pamper yourself at Buenaventura's open-air Shakti Spa or delight your "foodie" senses with authentic Mexican cuisine at one of the resort''s signature restaurants, seaside or pool snack bars.

Location: Beachfront, 5 min walk from downtown Vallarta, 20 min from the airport.

Soccer Tournament????

My wife and I spent a week here. Part of the patio was being renovated and Jalisco was playing host to a national youth soccer tournament and it seemed as though most of the kids were staying at this property, yelling, right outside our room. The staff was friendly and tried their best to be understanding and accommodating but with that many kids running around there was just not much that they could do. The room was clean except for the giant crack in the bath tub. The breakfasts were very good as were the lunches, we did not eat any dinners at the hotel because we honestly just wanted to get away from all of the boisterous children. All of the bar staff were very good and consistently delivered quality drinks.

Great week!

We knew when we booked that the resort that it was kid friendly. There were so many kids when we got there and the pools were crazy crowded. ( we were told there was an annual Soccer tournament) Fortunately after the weekend everything quieted down. Also their restaurant/ bar was closed for renovations. That said, they made great strides to make up for the closure. They had a very functional make shift eating area on the beach. During the day it was a lunch area and at night one of the a la crates. The staff was great! From Jorge and Raymundo (Ray) at the pool bar to Stephanie and Christopher at the front desk. Omar made us Mexican coffees table side. He went above an beyond to fulfil our request for Mexican coffees at the beach a la carte restaurant. Antonio worked hard to inform guests of upcoming activities and to have guests participate. I wish I could remember the lovely Concierges name. He's worked at the resort 30 + years and takes great pride in his work. One of the best reasons to stay at the Buenaventura is LOCATION,LOCATION,LOCATION. Just a short walk to the Malecon which has entertainment, shops and food vendors plus so much more. The grounds are well manicured and clean.

Too many children , need adult area. Adult bar, only one real restaurant power turned off for over 5 hours construction noise. Staff lovely. Close to town. No bath tub.needs to be updated will not stay there again.

We booked this hotel because it is close to the malecon which was a plus. The staff were friendly but I think they were overwhelmed. The soccer teams arriving seemed to take over the whole hotel. The pools were packed and people were hollering in the hallways late at night. During the day construction was going on. Constant noise. The room smelled very musty, there were cracks in the sink and the phone didn't work. The buffet was average and the meal on the beach was awful. There were few options for food. It was certainly not as advertised. Disappointing.

Awesome stay!

Our recent stay at the Buenaventura Grand Hotel &Great Moments was awesome. The staff and service in all areas was exceptional! Ricardo and Omar, your restaurant service was the best; you guys rock! Raymond and Estabon, your bar service was memorable; you guys are amazing! Eduardo and Jorge, your pool service was very attentive; you guys are awesome! Tony and his entertainment colleagues provided some good laughs; we applaud you. The check-in and check-out went smoothly; good organization. The location of the hotel was great; what we were looking for. The only draw-back was a local soccer tournament where it encompassed an influx of kids on the last four days of our stay but there again the staff did their best to work around that and still provided excellent service.
