I'm conflicted. I want to write this review because I want to praise the staff and beauty of the hotel, but I don't want to write this because I want this place to stay my little secret forever. With that being said, the photos don't do this place justice. If you are looking for a fast paced, adventure filled vacation, don't come here. If you are looking to chill out for a week, like literally do nothing, but lay on a beach bed, have food and drinks brought to you by wonderful and friendly servers, maybe buy some peanuts, tamales, cocos, jewelry, or purses from local vendors that walk by, don't mind nudity in various forms (equal mix of naked and clothed beach bodies), and love the constant sound of pounding surf, then this place is for you. I can't explain how much I love this place. There are some other nice hotels on the beach, but Buda Mar has just the right amount of laidback-ness I was looking for and it's right in the middle of Playa Zipolite so exploring the other properties and restaurants on the beach is easy. My partner and I will be returning every year. Many thanks for Ana, Nadia and the entire staff.

Posada Buena Vida, while by no means a luxury experience, was idyllic in its own way. You could tell there is a lot of attention to detail around the property. In fact, many passersby on the beach took note of this as well and stopped by for pictures, drinks, and food as they passed. Even though we traveled during the off season, Posada Buena Vida always appeared open and welcoming, unlike most other properties on the beach. The staff was helpful throughout and very attentive to our needs. The food and drinks were always good and service was quick. The rooms were cleaned quickly and immaculately each day. They do have a no outside food or drink policy, which was fine given that they could provide almost anything we needed during our stay and the quality was good. Also, they are located near many of the restaurants off the beach, so there are options outside the hotel nearby.

3 nights with my young cousin in a room with shared bath.
