    The property is well-located, contemporary and friendly

    The property offers an easy and safe walk to the Malecon and all old Puerto Vallarta sites and restaurants. Our newly renovated guest room is well-appointed and very clean and has great ocean views! The fitness center is expansive, bright and well-equipped and the many outdoor pools and the sandy beach palapa area are all immaculately maintained and uber relaxing. Many dining venues and food options to choose from and a very nice shopping arcade too. The best part tho is that the service is spot-on: we have encountered well-trained, accommodating and friendly staff in all areas. Bravo to the team at this property, you are doing a great job and we would happily return on our next visit to Puerto Vallarta.

    Handicap friendly

    The Buganvilias Vacation Club in Vallarta has the nicest staff. I already posted pictures of some of them but I wanted to add some more. The other thing I wanted to say is that the resort is very handicapped friendly. I cannot walk very far so I brought my motorized scooter along with me. Everything in the whole resort was easy to access. The shower was large so that they brought a patio plastic chair where I could sit and take a shower. Everyone helped me as much as possible. It’s one of the reasons we keep coming back because I know that I can manage everything.

    Pool bar

    The pool bar has great service! Specifically, Eduardo goes above and beyond with his service and greatly exceeded our expectations with hospitality during our stay. The proximity of the beach to the pool was very convenient and we had a lot of fun at both.
