Fabulous Vacation - Amazing Penthouse Condo.
We just came home after a 7-night stay in Punta de Mita. What an amazing vacation! Like others, our family LOVED our trip! From the moment we walked into the penthouse we felt like royalty. Calling it a condo is really an injustice, so I will keep calling it a penthouse because that is more appropriate - it is spectacular! The penthouse is spacious, has everything you can think of, and the views are simply breathtaking. Waking up every morning to a beautiful sunrise over the bay was awesome. If you are considering Punta de Mita, do yourself a favor and stay at this penthouse - you will not be disappointed. My teenage boys spent many mornings and early evenings surfing right outside the property. The property is just inside the resort gate, making it very easy to walk into the town of El Anclote. The unit comes with a golf cart that makes getting around the property a breeze. The concierge, Shirley, was very attentive and helped us plan things as needed. The owner, Christine, was very easy to work with and she provided lots of great ideas for our stay. We enjoyed the premier membership that comes with the unit to enjoy the beach at St. Regis and the beach at Kupuri. Kupuri was a very nice white sand beach with no reef - perfect for body surfing. We also had dinner one night at Mita Mary’s on the beach at the St. Regis - this is an absolute must. Fresh seafood, great cocktails and a beautiful sunset - nothing better. In town, we agree that Si Senor is a great restaurant. Excellent food and service and not too expensive. We also highly recommend dinner at Sufi - a bit more expensive, but excellent food in a great setting. We also highly recommend hiring the private chef for at least one meal. After a tiring day of events, having the pleasure of sitting back in the penthouse enjoying a cocktail while a private chef prepares a 4 course meal was amazing. The concierge will send the menu before your trip and you can select from a number of options. The surfing at La Lancha was fantastic. And finally we highly recommend the spearfishing charter from SpearMex just outside the gate in El Anclote. Our entire family enjoyed an amazing adventure, which combines snorkeling and spearfishing. The folks at SpearMex train you how to shoot, and then take you on several dives of varying depths. We all caught several fish on our one and only trip. We’ve already agreed that we will be back to Punta Mita!

A+ Condo & Resort!!
We LOVED every minute of our six day stay at Hacienda de Mita!
The condo is spectacular and spacious(the pictures don’t to do the views from the unit justice). It is beautifully furnished with an absolutely perfect covered porch overlooking two pools, the beach and the mountains. And the owners have thought of everything to make your stay super easy and comfortable!
They provided you us with a complete visitor’s guide that has everything you need to know about the area and condo. They were also great about responding to all our questions about the resort and condo before the trip and returned our security deposit within one week of our return home. The guide lists all their favorite restaurants and activities, information on using everything in the condo (like hooking the Sonos speaker system up with your cell phone), and how to book a tee time at the golf course. And the onsite concierge, Shirley, was super friendly and helpful in setting up any activities we needed and answering all our questions,

This unit is really well located in the resort. It is an easy five minute walk down to the beach or to the little Mexican village which has a great assortment of excellant restaurants (Seafood, Mexican, Asian, & Italian) and shopping.

We loved using the golf cart to explore all the areas of the resort including the beaches/beach clubs available with the condo. Here is our feedback on all the sites/activites:
St Regis Beach Club/Mita Mary’s-Our favorite! Phenomenal service(Ruben the beach manager is the best), food, and views!
Tennis Facility- nice courts and great staff.
Hacienda de Mita Clubhouse- loved using the pair of Stand Up Paddle Boards provided by the owners, also a great beach for surfing. Great service from the host, Louis, and super reasonable prices($1 for cerveza, $2 for mojitos, $40 for a one hour massage)
Residence Beach Club-the best beach for swimming/playing in the surg(great sand, no rocks), in between the St Regis and the Four Season’s Resor
Kupuri Beach Club- beautiful vistas, great sandy beach, but surf was really rough!
Golf-We had a little bit of sticker shock for the cost of a round of golf($275 + a person for a round) which was a little steep for us. The course looked nice and the Whale’s Tail was cool to see!
Yoga- nice class at the Hacienda de Mita Clubhouse
Mountain Biking-enjoyed a 4 hour ride with Alex at Mita Adventures.

To sum it all up: Fantastic Condo & Resort Overall: A+ Vacation

This condo is more than perfection! The owners are spot on with decoration, communication and the staff are amazing! We were greeted at the airport with a english speaking driver which was fantastic, We stopped at the grocery on our way to the condo which had everything we needed for the week. We hired the chef for 2 nights and it was wonderful. Who wouldn’t want a margarita waiting for you upon arrival. Can’t wait to get back there
Thank you Christine

Great location, great unit, a wonderful family vacation!
Punta Mita has been our family’s favorite vacation destination for about 10 years. This was our first stay at Hascienda de Mita - the location of these condos within Punta Mita is great. We stayed with my brother’s family, total of 4 adults and 4 children. It is on the beach with private pools, and a private exit right to the Punta de Mita village. The beautiful condo has one of the best views of the ocean and is beautifully maintained. With the premier membership, we had the use of both golf courses (Pacifico is our favorite), owner’s beach club, and Kipuri Beach club. We even took surfing lessons right in front of the condo. Lots of great restaurants nearby (both in the village and within Punta Mita). Highly recommended!

Fabulous Family Vacation!
This was our first trip to Mexico and we don’t know if we will ever be able to top this trip! The communication with the owner and the concierge before we even arrived was prompt, organized and efficient. We had the concierge arrange transportation from the airport to the condo and that worked perfectly. Upon arrival to the condo we were in awe of the beauty of it! We felt very safe and secure, entering through 2 different security gates. The grounds were immaculate, the condo was just as it looked in the pictures (only better!) and everyone we came in contact with were friendly and helpful. We were able to enjoy many fun activities and fabulous dinners out. We also had a chef (Mario) for 1 dinner, which was awesome -we would do that again for sure. Additionally we had a cook on 2 different days prepare our breakfast and lunch. We are so glad we did that! She was fantastic, the food was terrific and we felt very spoiled. The housecleaning (daily) was also wonderful. Our only regret was our trip was not long enough to enjoy more relaxing days at all the great beach clubs. We went to Sayulita for a late afternoon & dinner, we took the Marietas Islands Tour and the guys went on a surf excursion - all arranged through our concierge - and all fantastic! We highly recommend this location and definitely this Penthouse Condo! We will definitely be back!
