Sheraton Buganvilias Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Sheraton Buganvilias is a solid 4 star hotel, but is also very basic. The hotel is about 15 minutes from downtown and from the Malec�n (the main boardwalk). The beach really isn't great, as is normal for hotels located so close to downtown, but the pool makes up for that. This hotel offers seniors specials, which can be hard to find nowadays. Kids stay and eat free, but the Crown Paradise Club or the Melia might be better options when it comes to kids. This hotel doubles as a convention centre and makes a great option in that respect. Would� recommend this hotel if it was available for a good price.
This expansive hotel features two of the largest pools in Puerto Vallarta, and terraces surrounded by lush tropical gardens filled with the colourful flowers the hotel is named after. Two years ago, the hotel was expanded and a new tower now houses Hotel Rooms, Studios and 1-Bedroom Kitchenette units. The lively Sheraton Buganvilias offers a full spa, excellent sports facilities, a dynamic lobby bar with nightly live entertainment, and a popular champagne Sunday brunch. Not to mention a terrific beachfront location that's handy to town!
Location: Beachfront, 5 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from downtown.
Typically we don't travel to Mexico in the summer. Found a killer deal on leftover RCI weeks. I was worried about the weather since it said the humidity was going to be in the 90*. The weather was perfect, blue skies, not to hot and a few showers at night. After check in we were escorted to the timeshare tables, given info and a coupon for a free welcome drink. We only received one called the whole week from them...so we didn't find them bothersome.The hotel was nice, clean, beautifully maintained grounds. The star's at this resort are the employees, helpful, kind and hardworking. We stayed in the timeshare section, Tower D on the ninth floor with views to the south. We had a one bedroom with kitchen, not super fancy but nice.Spent most days under the palapa having adult beverages and lunch. Good service by Manuel and Gamie. We found the food good at the pool bar restaurant's and La Villita with good prices. Never tried the buffet only ordered off the Ala cart menu. The same small menu offered at the pool bar's, snack bar and lobby bar. Found it a little limited in choices after a week La Villita did have a different menu to order from if you didn't want the buffet, again limited choices. Most evenings we went off the resort to dine at our favorite restaurants in the area. Loved the location, one of our favorite neighborhood's, 5th. de Dec. The resort wasn't crowded at all. It did get a little busier starting Thurs. evening until Sun. with the tour buses arriving with Mexican National's. Would we stay here again...absolutely.
My husband and I just returned from a 3 week stay here. There is a timeshare side and a hotel side. We were in the timeshare side. They are doing a floor of renovation so we asked for a room as high as we could get. Yes there was noise, but that is expected. The hotel is also having work done. Our room had a king bed, balcony with chairs and typical bathroom. The room was kept clean. We did need maid everyday, but she did a great job when she came. No kitchen or microwave. The bellhop staff was amazing. So helpful and accommodating. I had trouble walking so they let me use a wheelchair. So nice. The grounds were maintained and lush. The pools were beautiful. The swim up bar was a nice touch. The bar tenders love talking with all the guests. We even watched the iguana roam the area. When walking around, all the employees were very friendly. Always a hello, how are you or another greeting. We did use the spa services and luxury all the way. We will definitely return to this resort. The restaurants are evaluated in another section!
Love the service we recieved from Marco Mendiaz at the Buganvillas palapa bar. He is so professional and customer service focused. I hope he is there next year when I return. I always enjoy my annual vacation there.
If you try this hotel because it is SPG member, walk away. Despite being in Puerto Vallarta, a well known beach destiny due to it's diversity, they won't make you feel welcome. I was there with my couple and the way we were treated is not how SPG member are treated any were in the world. On top of that the facilities of the hotel are old and not well maintained. The only thing good of this hotel are the breakfast at the Royal Beach Club, those are the only kind and well trained staff at the whole hotel.
This is the 4th time I've stayed and it really is the place I love most in the world! The staff are amazing. They work so very hard to make your stay incredible. I spent long hours at the pool bar - Hugo knows what you drink as soon as you show up! The rooms are incredibly clean - the bathrooms in and around the lobby and the bar are scrubbed and cleaned almost hourly I think. I can't say enough good things about this place. I have visited a lot of all inclusive resorts on both coasts and will come back the the Sheraton Buganvilias again and again. One other priceless gem I have to mention is Alexandra in the lobby bar. She is like none other!! I want to bring her home with me every time! She loves her job and she loves people and that is the combination that makes you feel so special when you stay here. One thing to note is to stay clear of the time share sales people as you walk in - head straight to check in because they are ruthless. Other than that I can't think of one negative! Food is good - gym is good - service and cleanliness are second to none!
