Just returned (21st Aug) from the IFA Buenaventura. We travelled as a family and with friends (2 x M, 2 x F and 1 x F (13).
Firstly, I am not a snob but we usually travel to Long Hual destinations at a 5* or 5*+, so we were a little apprehensive of this holiday.
I must say however, this was one of the best Holidays that we have had ... and I will say yes! there are some downsides but all in all this was a great hotel.
I found the food good.. there was plenty of it and it ranged from Buffet to carvery. We did eat out a couple of nights but that was just to get out of the resort.
Expected this to be a bit of a 'bun fight' but it was not. There is a ruling about only 2 drinks per arm band holder... I was really anoyed about it... but then I saw what some were doing... They had come on the holiday and only half had paid AI and was getting all their food and drink fromn the others. This ruling did seem to partially stop this.
There is about 2 nights a week where the entertainment is proffessional. On other nights you have to suffer the animation team... but hey.... they were trying.
Quiet Pool - where most of the families go and the more party pool where the adults seem to play. Again there are some rules that need to be observed here... in the quiet pool you are not allowed to play with balls or air beds, lilo's or rubber rings... even though they sold these in the hotel shop... but did not warn you about the use. In the Party pool you could throw a ball about but no air beds, lilo's or rubber rings.
Yup..... its a lively Hotel... you WILL get early morning returning revelers!
Clean and well serviced
The IFA Buenaventura is 15Min from beach and 10 Mins from Jumbo Centre. Both great places to have some fun.
Conclusion.... Yes some small issues... but for what we paid... Excellent!
Well done IFA
