The hotel is very beautiful including the surrounding garden, the many pools and beach. The pools are nice, and I enjoy the sand and beach more. Food is great overall, but vegetarian options are somewhat limited. There are activities and excursion you can book like horse riding, jetski, diving, etc... There is a deli and you can get some snacks and milk which is nice.

We have been coming to this hotel for a few years but our last two stays have been the best. The hotel and extensive grounds are now spotless and very well maintained. Service and staff attention has improved substantially; restaurants offer a variety of choices in very pleasant settings. We loved the vegetarian paella at el Faro, the japanese restaurant and the sumptuous buffet breakfast. Several areas have been renovated. We love the comfortable rooms facing the pool. There are many different outdoor areas to relax and different beautiful pools . It is definitely one of best hotels we have stayed, one would want to return soon.

The Buenaventura is lovely and welcoming. I appreciated the warm towel and cold drink upon arrival. We arrived too early to check in but were given space at the spa to change and to store clothes until the room was ready. There are several pools. We had lunch by the pool and the food was good. In the evening we ate in the steak restaurant. Service was excellent and the food was very good. After dinner we hung out and watched as the bats swooped down to catch bugs swimming on the surface of the pool. I had requested a quiet room. We were in Room 252. The room was nice. It was clean. The bathroom wall had louvered shutters which opened to the bedroom. We closed them. I don't want to be looking into the bathroom from the bedroom. The view of the pool area was pretty and we had a peak a boo view of the ocean. The grounds are a lovely place to walk and the grounds are enormous. My problem with the Buenaventura is noise. There was a bar with a private party directly underneath our room. The speakers faced the building. The dj had a very loud voice. It was a boisterous party. The music and his voice bounced off the building and reverberated for several hours. With all the space the property has, I don't understand why the speakers were not directed away from the building. We are going back next January but I will search for another place to stay.

Our recent stay was ,as always, great. I have stayed at this property at least 6 times. I would go to Panama just to stay here. The grounds,spa, food, rooms ,pools are top drawer. The beach leaves a bit to be desired,but it is the best resort that Panama has to offer. It is a good value. The service is quite good as well.

Located on a hill overlooking the Pacific, this resort offers romance, good food, and spectacular views in addition to a fabulous golf course, exquisite pools, great spa, and a lovely landscaping. We stayed five nights (Sunday through Thursday) and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We savored our long walks on the beach, excellent massage, pool swims, and bike rides. The resort was never crowded.
