Buenaventura Grand Hotel & Great Moments - All Inclusive
Needs a paint job
After an unwelcome arrival where requests made 9 months ago to have two rooms on the same floor had been ignored. The food and drinks were wonderful. The main failing is that the bedrooms need to be updated and repainted.

Very Good8.0
A good all-inclusive option
A nice hotel with decent facilities and helpful staff. Some of the decor a little dated in the room and the food offering pretty basic but overall great value for an all-inclusive. A 10-15 minute walk to the Old Town and situated right on the beach.

Resort nightmare
Be very wary of this resort. There are so many issues where do I begin. The photos are deceptive. The place is run down, dirty, over crowded. There are broken lounge chairs. The service and food in the dining hall was beyond terrible. If you like having to chase waiters all day for glasses and utensils which are never on the table then this is the place for you. Will never stay again. Stay far away.
A Traveller, us5 night trip
Buenaventura Grand Hotel & Great Moments - All Inclusive
Expected balcony and didn't get it. Offered balcony overlooking street 4 days later. Only given 2 bottles of water a day. Had to complain several times to get more. Food mediocre. Only 2 specialty restaurants and require reservations that day only between 10 and 12. Pool chairs reserved early with no one there for hours. Most staff friendly, but those that weren't were very obvious they were not happy to help us.Mediocre entertainment at pool 2 nights. No Mexican fiesta party. No Mexican food in restaurants except tacos on the beach. The big plus, walking distance to the Malecon. I would not book again. The worst all inclusive I have stayed in Mexico.
