This place is cute and right on the beach. It is an all inclusive so it takes the work out of finding places to eat. The pool area is fun and relaxing. The staff are attentive and friendly. The villas are large and air conditioned. The only thing I will mention is that there is no "night life" so if... More

This is my favorite place on earth! Yes! Rancho Banderas is located on Destillardos beach, a beautiful LONG stretch of white sandy beach. The pool is actually broken into 4 different areas divided by waterfalls. We remarked that this gives each area a cozy intimate feeling. The rooms are clean, well-appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed beginning each day with breakfast... More

So many wonderful thoughts when it comes to Rancho Banderas.... We searched for so many places for our honeymoon, and after all of the positive reviews we pulled the trigger. I will say, at that point we were still a little skeptical of all of the rave reviews (it is just in our nature not to believe everything we read... More

Beautiful and quiet beach. I love to swim and snorkel in waters where I can see the bottom, this is one of them. The sand is almost white, so be careful, it reflects the sun rays. The young guys at the beach are very helpful and will make your time at the beach enjoyable. Seek their help with the kayaks,... More

This is Paradise on Earth in our estimation of things. We took the local bus from the airport in Peurto Vallarta to Punto de Mita which took about an hour or so.

Great resort but whoever added a large low quality speaker on high volume blasting the pool area making it impossible to chat or relax, made a huge error. Everyone has a phone with headphones if they want to listen to music. Bad decision. It is a resort not a disco and most prefer to hear the waves vs loud music... More

We had eight families with teenagers stay at this quaint resort and it was wonderful! Our unit was on the 3rd floor with a beautiful view of the ocean and cascading pools below.
