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.

sunrise to sunset... the perfect location!

Beautiful weather, blue skies every single day! The hotel is located only a couple of blocks from the malecon walkway and the charm of old town. We are repeat visitors to this hotel and notice the changes every year - quality and presentation of food especially in the sunset restaurant was spectacular. Service and staff in all areas was exceptional - special cudos though to Roberto(sunset) and Rogelio(security). Management is attentive, visible and caring to all needs. Without a doubt still our favourite location to stay in Puerta Vallarta, we will be back!

Fabulous service!

The staff at the Buenaventura are "bend over backwards," hard working, friendly, nothing is to difficult, fabulous! The service is top notch. I would like to recommend you try an omelet for breakfast (or eggs anyway you want). The wonderful cook's name is Dalia, be sure to leave her a little "propina," please.

Hotel under construction

We went to this hotel because we loved the location. We have been vacationing in Puerto Vallarta for 11 years. The rooms need help and the restaurant was under construction. We only ate breakfast in the hotel due to the amount of children and there was t very many choices to eat.If we returned it would only be for location. The rooms were clean but our shower leaked.

Great resort !

We stayed here from January 8-15,2017. The place was wonderful . But by the sounds of it quite a few people with reservation problems in check in . Us and another couple had the same issues on check in .. Had to use our credit card also for our first night .. They say just a hold on your card for the night .. Haven't checked my card yet to see for sure . The other couple got quite upset with the manager ... Don't do that ! Lol. By the evening we came back to our room to a note under our door saying see the manager in the morning for an upgrade .. They upgraded us to everything we had requested . The food and the staff were wonderful ! The location of the resort is great to ! Right at the start of the cobblestone road . Short walk to the boardwalk . The bar staff were always on top of making sure you always had a drink . No problems there at all . We will definitely go back ! Thanks again to the managers for being so good to us despite all the trouble with our reservation .. Which I will be talking to Transat ! Lol

Our last experience

To start off we have stayed at the Buenaventura many times and have had some fantastic service and food. It is a great location for those who want to be located in walking distance of the downtown and malecon areas. It also has nice sized rooms and ok facilities. The one thing that it lacks is security it has no way of securing the grounds from the outside. The beach is rocky and full of peddlers hacking their Chinese made wares. But as we walked in this year we noticed that all the staff we had come accustomed to seeing was gone and that should have been a clue.Now the issue we had this time was that they had no booking for us and I understand this happens but they didn’t want to do anything about it. The desk person had an I don’t care attitude and it was my entire fault that I had to take off. They offered no help at all but once I straightened it out we were given a room that was located over a loading dock that was so noisy you could sleep. I ask to be moved but was told no they were full and they weren’t by any means full. Yet another issue was the cleaning staff as they did a great job you just had no clue what time they would show up. One day would be early am the next would 7 at night. From there the wait staff just didn’t care in any of the restaurants, which is only 2 not 5 like advertised. Unless u were a female with a plunging neckline you just couldn’t get good service. The last thing that we found annoying and this may be small is years passed the door man open the cab door and greeted you. Not this year they just stood back and ignored what was going on. We ended up making the best of the stay there. We just sleep there the best we. So if you are looking for just a place to stay then this is great location to downtown PV but if are looking for service, amenities and great food/drinks well look elsewhere.
