“Relaxing time at the HBV”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2010

My wife and I took a 2 day trip from our week in San Jose. The HBV enjoys a great location directly on the beach in Spa Buena Vista. The property is beautifuly landsacaped with mature palms and flower. The rooms are all single story cottages or bungalows. While the rooms are dated, they were clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and pool bar. The water comes from a mineral spring up the hill and felt great. Our plan included breakfast which we enjoyed outside on the patio overlooking the ocean. We took long daily walks on the magnificent beach. Most of the hotel guests came for the fishing. We intended to go diving but it was canceled due to high winds. This is a relaxing quiet place off the beaten path.

We learned of this location from friends that frequent this place for over 20 years. My boyfriend loves to go fishing and I thought I would go along with him and try it out. I did not know what to expect. Needless to say I had an amazing and adventurous time! In the morning we would get up have a delicious breakfast and then head off to fish. My first day I caught Yellowfin Tuna , the second day more Tuna and some Dorado. Our boat also cuaght Pargo & Red Snapper...such a variety of fish out there.
Once you return from fishing the hotel staff would prepare some of your catch and for have dinner.
This is a great family friendly Hotel. The staff and owners go that extra mile to make sure you feel at home. They do everything possible to make sure they make you feel like thier special and unique guest.
This Hotel is catered for great fishing, they have found their niche and do it well.
We will be back to fish in 2011!

Hello, would like to share some info on beuna vista beach resort and hotel. I have been visiting this place since 1985. I/we have enjoyed many trips here, some fishing trips and some just for the relaxation. The resort is beautiful, the familia Valdez are just a wonderful bunch and the staff is great with most having been here for years. Everytime we go we are treated like family, we have been at all different times of the year with never a bad experience. There are not many resorts that you can go to for over 25 years and be able to say that. If we come for the fishing and don't do really well, It is made up for by the people and good times had doing other things like hanging by the pool with drinks from Ricardo, visiting with all the nice people, riding atv's for the afternnon to some of the interesting sites. Waterfalls, streams that appear from the ground and run a ways then disappear again back into the ground. Riding horses on the beach, Snorkeling right down in front of the resort where you see tons of fish. You can go into los barilles and have dinner/ drinks/ shop. We have left the resort and gone on day trier ps down to San Jose, Los Cabo's. Over the years the fishing has had it's up's and down's but overall is still very good and with the catch and release programs it is still some of the best in the world. We have caught stripped marlin, dorado less than a mile off the beach and when you are trolling there is so many interesting things that you are never bored, the crews on the boats are very friendly and helpful. Most speak very good english and the few that don't i have never had any problems being understood or understanding what they are saying..After a good day of fishing, Quick shower and out to the pool for some refreshments an meeting/ visiting with some of the great people that also enjoy the resort. I could go on for hours but i think this should give you a good idea how wonderful this place and the people truly are... ENjoy your trip and maybe we'll see you there....

This was our second stay at HBV. My wife loves relaxing around the pool and the camraderie of "happy Hour" and I enjoy taking my flyrod to the beach to see what I can hook. The quietness of the East Cape area is a nice change from the "hustle" of the more touristy areas (like Cabo) and a very relaxing place to visit.

This hotel is a fishing destination of note and with a fleet of well kept boats and experienced crews to help you take advantage of the excellent inshore or offshore fishing that surrounds this area, While this is happening, other family members particularly younger ones can enjoy the pool complex and beach. The beach is really a nice change from the other Mexican vacation destinations that we have visited (Cancun, PV, Cabo, Puerto Penasco). It is clean , empty and stretches both ways for miles!

Although the hotel rooms may be considered by some as small and the furnishings dated, they are very serviceable and comfortable. The clean, well maintained grounds, with its varied flora and bird life really add to the atmosphere of the hotel. We went on the "American Plan" and found the menu varied and the food superb although the wine list was somewhat limited. The Valdez family and staff does its best to make you feel welcome and to look after special requests all with efficiency and a smile.

We think that overall the hotel offers good value in a great area and we are already planning to return for a third time.

The overall experience at the hotel was very good. The rooms are a little dated and the bathrooms small but the location by the beach was excellent as was the pool. The fishermen in our party had a great day one day and a so-so day on the other day that they fished. The ATV rides were fun. Don't expect much in the way of tourist attractions -or night life. If you want that, go to Cabo. It was very relaxing and unhurried. The food was good to very good and our waitstaff was great. The landscapping around the hotel is beautifully maintained.

Stayed June 2009, travelled with family
