Fiesta Americna or Buenaventura - Thoughts Please?

Looking at packages for next week and prices for these seem comparable. Do they have beaches? Do they have balconies?

Are either of them newer or recently remodelled?

Thanks for any input.

I can only comment on the Buenaventura. We are returning for a third visit Feb. 22. They just recently completed a major renovation (we feel it didnt need it though). Hotel is on the beach and within easy walking distance to downtown. Some rooms have balconies, some dont and some have a nice patio (obviously ground floor) There are several restaurants and bars, pools. Hotel is very clean and staff is friendly.

And I can only comment on the Fiesta Americana. It is located in the old hotel zone, a considerably longer walk from downtown but very easy access via the public bus that stops right outside, a couple hundred meters from the Gigante shopping area, and on a good beach for the area. Rooms are very nice and almost all have large balconies directly overlooking the ocean – fantastic views (request a room 4th floor or higher to see over the trees). I think it would be rated maybe a star above the Buenaventura but the price too is higher. It is a good option.

Stayed at Fiesta Americana last year and am returing in just a few days!!!! We really liked it. The lobby is a beautiful palapa with a little "stream" running through it. The pool area is very nice. We enjoyed the beach. The rooms were nice and clean and we liked our view of the pool and ocean. THe check in was slow and room not ready on time. No worries, we changed into swim wear and had margaritas by the pool. The food was fine for hotel food. We had nachos by the pool for lunch and bought pastries at the Gigante market across the street. We had dinner in town. The bus stops right in front of the hotel and the concierge was helpful t us in all ways. Never stayed at the Buenaventura.
