The 155-room property hosts daily activities -- from non-motorized water sports to cooking classes -- plus a supervised kids club offering craft-making and games. Three restaurants dish up hearty Mexican dishes. Air-conditioned rooms adopt local touches, including rustic furniture and Mexican tiles.

  • Daily activities for kids and adults
Rooms
Hacienda Buenaventura Hotel Spa and Beach Club conjures Mexican charm via 155 rooms decorated with rustic wood furniture, Mexican tile and linens in subtle colors. Guests select from standard and superior rooms. In the latter, lovely archways and steps lead down to the bedroom. In both layouts, amenities tend to the essentials, from purified water to cable TV. Visitors find comfort in double or king beds, cable TV, air-conditioning and an in-room safe. Private balconies overlook the grounds.
Features
Hacienda Buenaventura Hotel Spa and Beach Club hosts a well-rounded roster of daily activities to keep guests entertained in and out of the water.

Great vacation for a couple

Hotel and location was AMAZING my only negative is the food, it was ok, not plentiful and lacked variety. It was on of the cheapest all inclusive and you do get what you pay for. Staff are amazing, friendly and the location of the hotel was IT for me, so close to everything downtown.

Great Stay at Hacienda

Hacienda is a great little Mexican Hotel. It is not the Hilton, nor the Marriott nor an American hotel in Mexico...it is a Mexican hotel, full of culture, wonderful staff and ambiance. The location is just steps away from the Maritime Marina (cruise terminal), Wal-Mart, Sorianna, massages, Liverpool Shopping Center and a bus stop, so that getting into town is easy and inexpensive. Though the hotel is 2 blocks from the beach, their beach club is very nice, with snacks, drinks, beach chairs and a wonderful beach (Playa de Oro). One can walk into town on the beach, or walk to the cruise terminal and observe. I have stayed at Hacienda many times and love the people. The rooms are clean, neat and it is a wonderful bargain for the price.

For 6.5 pesos, take a city bus into Centro and walk the Malecon, etc. No need to taxi.

Let down

At first when we arrived, the hotel did not have the reservation in their system. I had to call you'll to get it fixed. Then the pictures shown on your website for the hotel where misleading. I was expecting much more due to the pictures. Overall the stay at the hotel was average. I will look for a better hotel next time.

cultural, well located, very clean and good value

If you go to Mexico to soak up the culture, meet Mexican people, eat food that the locals often eat at home and drink local brands of alcohol, beer, wine, then this is the place for you. The hotel is not new and has the ambiance of an older Mexican place...iguanas in the courtyard, beds on concrete pads, balcony doors that may not close exactly right, tile everywhere, built in shelves, etc. in the closets, no elevator, but to me those are not negatives, they are part of the ambiance. The hotel is spotless, the staff members are friendly and wonderful and will go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The pool area/courtyard is beautiful and the beach club (@ two blocks away) is clean, neat and well located on Playa de Oro. snacks and drinks are available there along with bathroom facilities, beach loungers and palaypas. Expect to see/meet mostly Mexican people at this hotel and their beach club...instant immersion into a family oriented culture. I have been staying at Hacienda for years and intend to continue. ask for a suite if one is available...huge bathroom and closet areas.

Soriana and Wal-Mart are just a few steps away in case you need essentials. The hotel is a block or so from the Maritime Marina, so is convenient to any tours one might book

Cultural Experience

While I love Hacienda and have stayed there many times, I would be the first to admit it is not for many folks, particularly Americans or Canadians that are used to Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton, etc. Hacienda is not on the beach, but is a short 2 block walk to Playa de Oro, which is a busy, but not downtown beach in Puerto Vallarta. The hotel has a nice beach bar with drinks, snacks, bathrooms, shower, chairs, etc. The hotel is located on the bus line and is a 15-20 minute bus ride from town. It is 2-3 blocks from the Maritime Marina, Wal-Mart, Soriana and two upscale shopping centers. It is a typical Mexican courtyard hotel with a beautiful older pool, a family of iguanas, decent to very good food/drinks and a warm, friendly staff, many who have worked there for several years. The rooms are clean, but very local in flavor with doors that do not always close firmly to the balcony, concrete night stands and huge built in closets/shelves. The tile is old but beautiful, as are the paths through the courtyard and the hallways. It is a wonderful/ fairly inexpensive experience for good travelers who want local culture. After years of going to PV, Hacienda along with another local hotel downtown are my favorite hotels. After you arrive, ask for an upgrade to a suite if one is available....huge bathroom!!!

Worst Ever

This is the first time I've ever written a review about a hotel, but I felt it was my duty to warn future tourist not to go to this hotel. It's so sad to look forward to a vacation and plan it meticulously and hope you are getting away for some much needed R and R. When you check in you have no one who offers to help you take your bags. They just handed me a real key that if lost could cost you $25 to $50 to replace. The real problem was the fact that I felt like I was in a frat house instead of a hotel. The hotel was filled with 20 to 25 year old's drinking and partying around the hotel until 5 am in the morning. The food was very limited and the drinks were watered down. Gosh this place was awful!! I'm to upset to continue.

One night stay

Probably one of the worst rooms we've ever stayed in...we were next to the street on one side and atrium on the other. The sliding door barely closed and had no track so you could hear everything through it. The floors were tile and not that clean, the shower door was hanging with one screw, barely any water came out of the shower head, no hair dryer. The room was truely a dive in all ways.Almost forgot--no elevators--so plan on doing steps.

Puerto Vallarta Hacienda

The hotel is in the best location in Puerto Vallarta if you want to do some excursions. We did Whale watching, Canopy zip lines, and scuba diving. All were boarding within walking distance from the hotel. Downtown was a taxi ride for 50 pesos. Supermarket, places to eat, and banks were all within a very short walk. They also have a hacienda beach lounge on the beach which was great. The staff were ALL extremely friendly and helpful. The room was perfect. The cleaning staff were outstanding.
