Having stayed at the Four Seasons since 2001, the St. Regis in November 2008, the Four Season Villas in June 2009, and another Hacienda de Mita last X’mas, I can justifiably say NONE of them can compare with the beauty & comfort of this condo. . . . .
I travel to Punta Mita frequently, and just returned home from a 17-day stay in this Condo. My suggestion to anyone reading this review is, if your interested in staying here, very closely look at each photograph, as although they do show the furnishings and art well they still don’t do this place justice. It truly is spectacular.
Having stayed at the Four Seasons since 2001, the St. Regis in November 2008, the Four Season Villas in June 2009, and another Hacienda de Mita last X’mas, I can justifiably say NONE of them can compare with the beauty & comfort of this condo. One of the most startling things to me was my first impression upon entering the condo and seeing the art in the entry, even the hand made Octopus wall scones, then walking into the living room and seeing the furnishings, the spectacular view, and then on to a huge, extremely well appointed patio, was truly amazing! The patio has a great lounge area with a really comfortable day bed, a dining table for 8, a working desk with everything I needed, and an inspiring view – and still plenty of room to spare – amazing! No hotel, other villa I’ve stayed at can compare with this place.
I’m used to getting room service, but having a full-time maid, who was a delight, and who could cook me breakfast and make me snacks any time I wanted was even better. Also having a kitchen like this one was truly a pleasure; morning espresso, fresh squeezed orange juice, ice-maker, just to name a few conveniences – this kitchen is better equipped than mine at home.
I can honestly say that other places I’ve stayed at in Punta Mita were very nice – but in no way could they compare with this place, which is in a class of its own. It’s too hard to explain this condo in words – you really do have to see it to believe it. I could never imagine being able to rent something like this – it’s a really beautifully appointed home, not a rental condo.
Originally I had booked this unit for 10 days, but I couldn’t leave, and the owner was nice enough to allow us to stay another 7 days, and I’ll be back!
