    I had a great time, the staff where great, with a few exceptions!

    The staff were great in general, all very helpful and patient. I met some awesome staff, I believe their names were Joann and Mariano, they were a complete pleasure, always making sure we had what we needed! The room was always checked up on to make sure it was clean which we really appreciated! Although I did have an encounter with one of the security staff, in which they were disrespectful and would not look away while I was trying to get out of the pool without being stared at, when I asked them to turn around they laughed and proceeded to mock me by blowing kisses. But thats about it, overall it was a great experience, Thank you Joan and Mariano!

    Great pool staff, awesome pool ambience and good food!

    So great that I have come back 3x already! Location is also great because it is walking distance to the Malecon. Close to nearby restaurants and the Mega grocery store, so if you're not doing the all inclusive, you still have many options. Love it so much, I bought a timeshare here!

    Wonderful property and even better staff!

    I don’t often write reviews unless they are truly warranted, so as I sit on my flight home I felt inspired to write this review. My families entire experience at the Sheraton Buganvilias was nothing short of Exceptional! The hotel is beautiful and had all the amenities you would expect from a 4 star Sheraton, but what made our stay so pleasant was the staff. Everyone – from the kitchen cooks and housekeeping to the concierges and the pool servers, was clearly well trained, happy to be working at the property and proud to take care of the guests. We spoke to many different groups of fellow guests who all make multiple trips annually to Puerto Vallarta and they all claimed the reason they keep coming back to the Sheraton was the excellent service from the staff. Kudos to the management who clearly take hiring, training, and keeping their staff happy a top priority. The overall stay wasn’t without incident, but the way the staff handled everything that came up made any concerns melt away. Specifically I recommend talking to the following: Marriott Bonvoy Member services leader Vanessi – she did an amazing job making sure we were well taken care of and any of our needs were addressed. Lulu the concierge was extremely helpful at booking our reservations, activities and giving us advice on new things to try. Club Lounge managers Efrian, Arnulfo, Ernesto and the rest of the club team took great care of us, and went out of their way to offer foods we liked. Pool servers Gama, Mariano (his brother) and Johnn worked the beach area and were prompt and always had a smile. I don’t remember our housekeeping staffs names, but they too were awesome and very friendly. Mario and the staff in LaVillata did a great job and even offered to cook a fish we caught on an outing we caught on a fishing trip. Sheraton Buganvilias Pros: The staff, the gym, the food, the pools, the Club Lounge, the hotel cleanliness and the location (which is central to everything and a short walk to the downtown). Cons: The beach is nice, but its not a sandy beach – its mostly river rock. That is apparently not uncommon throughout Puerto Vallarta. We loved discovering Puerto Vallarta, which is my new favorite destination in Mexico, and owe much of our wonderful experience to the Sheraton Buganvilias.

    Warm, Welcoming Staff

    I wanted to give a shout out to Sandra Salcedo, who is a host at the main restaurant on the property. She indulged me in a lengthy conversation about all things, and was extremely patient with me while I did my best at holding a conversation in Spanish. She was warm and lovely, and I very much appreciated connecting with her. Look for her and say hello!

    Resort and Maiave spa

    First time in Mexico. Extremely happy with choice of Sheraton. They have great phrase here, welcome home! They make you feel at home. Everyone was very accommodating, The resort was clean, restaurants were great, I had all inclusive. My room was ocean view, spacious and everything worked. The best part of the resort Maiave, the spa. I received a massage and facial, with that you get hydrotherapy, which is amazing!! Four different pools to relax in, heaven. The girls there are great with the massages and facials. Prices were very reasonable. So many activities at the resort didn’t need to leave. A great quick little get away from Los Angeles
