decent low key place....

Posted Jul 17, 2014
Pros: staff we're very friendly and nice
Cons: they have 2 kayaks. old and broken. one has half a paddle. they float. and no life jackets
Location: pretty remote. cab cost 20 dollars return to nearest town.
we did quite a lot of beach fishing here in front of the resort, but didn't catch much to write home about. the boats that work out of the resort here were catching a few fish during the 8 days we stayed but I don't think the cortez is what it used to be.

Great Location for my Trip

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Pros: The location
Cons: Updates and level of cleanliness
Location: The location is great if you want to fish.
I stayed at this hotel due to it's location, was visiting friends with a house there. I checked in and was told my room number, given a pool towel card and a remote for the air. I had not stayed here before so I asked where the room was, the response was left of the pool, period. So I tug my suitcase all around until I find my own room on the right side of the pool area! The description of the hotel said bottled water would be provided, this was not the case. When I booked the airport shuttle the website said one price per person, they left out minimum of 2 persons, so was charged doubled for the shuttle, which was full both coming and going!! The friendliest staff member there was the poolside bar tender that worked the busy days.

Home away from home!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and then traveled on to LA Paz where we stayed at another hotel. The one night in La Paz was a very negative experience. We came back to Buena Vista Beach Hotel where we will be spending 2 more nights before returning back to California.

They charge $12.00 per person per day for friends of guests. The happy hour is a good deal 2x1. If you are on the American plan read the fine print for breakfast.

Outdated, run down, great pool and beach location.

Posted Dec 29, 2013
Pros: Pool and spa, oceanfront location, sandy beach, cleanliness, friendly staff.
Cons: Provide a shuttle to town, more variety in the menu, new mattresses, update the rooms.
Location: Fishing, fishing and fishing.
We visited during the off-season for Christmas week. The resort arranged transportation for us round trip from the airport, which was nice. I requested (and received confirmation for) a room with a King bed, but were given a room with 2 double beds. The room was a nice size and very clean, but old and run down. The beds were very hard and uncomfortable. We had to change rooms after 3 days because we awoke to a sewage odor coming up from the shower drain. We tried to air out the room and block the drain, but it was overpowering. The staff does not speak very good English, and had a hard time understanding why we needed to change rooms. We had no problems with our new room, again with 2 double beds instead of a King. Three meals a day are included in the price, which were well prepared and filling. Unfortunately, the menu doesn't change at all. We had the same meals everyday for a week. The exception was Christmas Day, when they prepared a traditional American buffet. The resort is several miles away from the downtown of Los Barriles so it isn't practical to walk into town for variety. We walked into town along the beach (90 minutes each way) and ate, and another day we rented an ATV and drove into town, but you really need to have a car or taxi to see any of the surrounding area. The pool and spa area are beautiful and the staff at the bar were helpful and attentive, but again, speak little English. We spent a quiet and relaxing week here, but don't know if I'd return.

Relaxing stay

Posted Nov 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
We have stayed at the Buena Vista Resort several times over the years. The resort rooms are dated, no televsions, uncomfortable beds,floors and bathrooms could use remolding. But the grounds are well kept, staff are helpful and friendly and the pool and mineral spa very inviting. It is quiet and relaxing. In November we have found it to be less occupied. The restaurant is good and they have free wifi and happy hour. We like to spend a few nights here after a week in Cabo.
