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.

Excellent service and great location. Security is superb. Food was good with great selection. Kids really liked the pool side snacks-hamburgers and fries. Pool was warm and relaxing. Towel service great. Fun activities and evening entertainment. Rooms loud and could have used better night security on floors to keep hallway noise down. Woken often by loud guests arriving back to hotel. Beds were average for comfort but a bit hard. Overall it was a good hotel with lots to do and easy access to malecon and downtown.

Great location, Happy staff and guests!!

My wife and I recently spent 6 nights at the Buenaventura. Desk staff were efficient, dining room staff were courteous and attentive -- we especially liked Ricardo Gonzalez, who seemed to always be there and tending his zone / tables. Servers on the beach brought lots of drinks!! Food was good, room was too. Easy walk to city center. All-in-all, we would stay there again.

Amazing, relaxing, and fun week

Our trip was one of the best beach / all-inclusive vacations that our group has ever taken, and the Buenaventura resort was the main reason! We loved every aspect of this hotel.First, the hotel is located in a great location that is within short walking distance to the boardwalk and the Old Town area which was very fun to walk around and explore (also very safe, even at night in our opinion). The rooms themselves were simple but nice, and had everything that you needed for the little time spent in them. Beds were comfortable and cleaning was perfect each day.The resort itself was outstanding. It is a beautiful, well-maintained older resort with charm and character and all of the modern conveniences. The lobby is beautiful. On to the most important part, the pool and beach. There are three pools, all of which are great. There is a large swimming pool that is kept at bath-water temperatures, so you can swim all day and not feel cold at all. There is an "adult" swimming pool which is a bit more calm and relaxing. And there is a ocean front pool which has built in seats where you can sit, take in the sun, and have a drink. Of course there is also the ocean, but unfortunately the shore is slightly rocky in Puerto Vallarta so it is not as easy to swim, although the water was very warm when we visited. The resort offers free kayaks and paddle boards to use during the day. There were always plenty of chairs for our group of five somewhere in the pool area, even when we arrived later in the morning on peak spring break time.The restaurants at the resort were also amazing. We worried about the quality of the food at an All Inclusive resort, but you should not worry at all. Any review that says the food is inedible is flat out wrong and our group of five people enjoyed every single meal. It is definitely worth it to wake up at 8:00am to make reservations at the Sunset restaurant each night. They serve a delicious five course meal and the food is wonderful. The lunch and breakfast buffets are also amazing. We had planned to leave the resort for some meals but the food and service was so great that we just stayed. What really made the Buenaventura amazing for us was the incredible service we received. All of our servers and bartenders were beyond nice and hospitable and really made our visit memorable. At the Sunset restaurant, we LOVED our servers Isidro, Miguel, and Omar. We could not wait to see them every night and they gave us some of the best service we have had!! They deserve a raise!! At the bar, we loved Omari and Isreal. They kept the drinks coming without us even having to ask and everything was delicious. The service at this resort was really a step above what we expected and made for an outstanding trip.Overall we loved this resort! I would recommend it to anyone, a married couple, a family, or a group of students on Spring Break. We will definitely be returning.

fun for the whole family

Perfectly located with the ocean out the front door and true Mexican culture out the back....good food and service. Staff works hard to make it an enjoyable time. Weather is always great....hardly a cloud in the sky.

First time in Mexico - fabulous resort!

We were so fortunate to have stayed in such a fabulous place for our first trip to Mexico. I chose Buenaventura because I wanted a smaller resort within walking distance to the city and did we ever luck out! Great location, fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff, awesome service and the food was absolutely delicious. Thank you for all of your hospitality!
