Entertainment team very good. Food could be better. Hotel Clean.

Beverages are the cheap drinks if you want branded labels like Barcadi, Malibu, Lagers you have to pay extra.

Food good, but hotel looked to be at capacity during our stay, which made for some queues at meal times and inadequate sun beds round the pool. Clean and reasonable hotel, if a little tired looking.

My husband and I went for his 70th birthday and the lady on reception quickly commented upon our check in that he had a birthday coming up very soon. We were also told that we had a room upgrade. The room was very spacious and just as we had requested with a pool/garden view. I would mention that although our room was ideal it could have been a bit noisy if it had been one overlooking the big main pool where the entertainment and main bar was at night. Large single beds, very comfortable, although we always take our own pillows. The sun loungers get taken up pretty early, although they cannot be reserved before 8am. They also tend to run out of mattresses for them, although this is mainly due some people getting two, or even three for one bed! The food was very good, with a very large buffet selection. There are two pool areas, one being quieter than the other. There are plenty of games etc. to join in during the day if wanted, and the entertainment at night is good, catering for children and adults. On my husband's birthday, we found a bottle of champagne in our room which was a very nice touch. All the staff were very friendly and did not mind our constant questions. Everything was very clean and the lifts were always available for such a large hotel.
The only downside was no air conditioning, which if the weather had been very hot might become a problem. Apart from that we found it to be a great hotel.

The hotel was fantastic, me and my partner really loved it. There were just a couple of negatives though but we didn't let this spoil our holiday! There was no air con in the room but you could hire a fan for the week but it isn't the same as air con, it was extremely warm in the room! Also, the beds were pretty hard and I suffer from sciatica myself so it wasn't the most comfiest for me but I didn't let it ruin my holiday as everything else about the hotel was excellent. The staff were brilliant and the location was great too.

Lovely hotel, very clean and welcoming. Food was very varied and good. One thing we did miss and that was air conditioning. It does get very hot in the rooms. Would I stay there again - Yes.

The hotel is very nice and constantly cleaned. Rooms were cleaned every day. The food was very good and something to suit every taste with a large selection at each meal. The downside to this hotel is the noise. It is one of the noisiest hotels I have stayed at. From 06:30 am you are awoken with staff moving sunbeds around and from 9.00pm every evening the noise is deafening with the activity teams production every night until around 11.30pm. Don't go if you want to sleep. This is overlooking the main pool area and we had to request a change of room due to this, which the hotel obliged. Other guests were being charged 10 euros to move room for the same reason. The Hotel charges 2 euros per day to use the wifi which is very hit and miss depending on where you are in the hotel. Most guests had to sit downstairs in the reception area to access this.

Everything was perfect for us. The only thing was the room could do with a fridge but that's only a minor thing.

Check in no problem, requested a low floor overlooking quiet pool and got. Room spacious and clean but no air-con and single beds to push together but knew about both these before. Pool towels available to rent cheap, sunbeds plenty around but if you want a specific spot 8.30am is the time (same as any hotel/resort really). Food fine for type of hotel, freshly put out all the time, you wont starve. Great location 5 minutes from Kasbar, 10 minutes from Yumbo, 10 minutes from beach or taxi 4 euro. Free wifi in lobby. All round ok hotel for price paid.

It's great value for a 3 star hotel. Some areas are a little tired looking, but hotel is clean. The staff are all very hard working with great customer service, rooms are cleaned daily and restaurant is run very well with a great choice of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You don't have to get up at the crack of dawn to get a sunbed which is good. The only thing we paid for which was poor was the internet connection - not worth it. For a large hotel, we were pleasantly surprised that you could always get a seat/table somewhere at any time of day. Lovely pools and great entertainment. Very family friendly.

After our holidays I don't understand why this hotel is just 3 stars? It was holidays of lifetime. Everything was amazing, family friendly hotel, people, place, service, weather, food, facilities and of course animation team. You have to try it. There were all age people from young to old, families, singles, party people. Everybody had lovely time.

The rooms were very clean and lots of space, but the beds are a little hard. There's plenty of different foods to choose from and very tasty. The staff very helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is ideal, a short walk to the beach and shops near by.

I would stay again but not all inclusive. Everything about the hotel was really good, the pool areas were really nice, water was refreshing and not too cold. Entertainment in the day was fun, water polo and beach volleyball on the pitch on site was a great experience. The room we had was basement level, really big and spacious but there were cockroaches by night so after 2 nights of it I asked to change to a higher floor. Without any questioning the receptionist offered us 3rd floor for the next day. We were completely happy after that. The only big let down was the food, it was really bland, had to drown it in tabasco sauce. Not been on many all inclusives but after reading the good reviews about the food we were really shocked and disappointed. The fruit was decent and the drinks.

The only issue we had was the restaurant was too small for the size of the hotel, it was very busy and finding a table was difficult. Meals were basic but there was always something you could eat, they had meat, fish, and chicken dishes every night. However, I would say in comparison with the rest of the hotel the restaurant is a bit tiered and could do with being upgraded.

This was my 5th time staying at the IFA Buenaventura. It's ideal for cyclists: take your bike to your room, large buffet, all rooms are large double/twins. Some of the rooms can be quite noisy at nights/get no sun, but the hotel staff are quite accommodating in allowing you to move if that's an issue for you. It can also be quite daunting/chaotic the first couple of times at the buffet as it tends to be very busy at certain times (1st sitting in the evening) and sometimes hard to find a table.
