My family just spent a fabulous week at this condo. The oceanfront setting and the 4 bedroom unit was everything we could have hoped for.
The unit has an exceptionally large patio overlooking the pool and the ocean. The furnishings . . . and finishes in the unit are first class. From the furniture to the flat screen TVs and stereo there was nothing more we could have wanted.
The housekeeper is a gem and a very good cook. We were truly spoiled. We have stayed at the St. Regis and the Four Seasons but will return to this condo.
The relaxing atmosphere, great local restaurants within walking distance, and the fabulous beach club are just a few of the attractions. The owner and his staff were always available and most gracious. One of the best trips the family has taken.

Our recent trip to Hacienda de Mita, in Punta Mita, Mexico was fabulous.”
I had been to Punta Mita in October 2010 on a girl’s trip to the Four Seasons. We had a great time. I had decided that for my fathers 69th birthday the entire family would go to Punta Mita . . . to celebrate, so we needed a place that could accommodate, my father, my brother, his 2-year-old daughter, his 6-year-old daughter, my husband and myself. We found that place at Hacienda de Mita.
I didn’t really expect this trip to be better than the trip to the Four Seasons Punta Mita. I was happily wrong.
The condo has four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a wonderful kitchen, living room and the most amazing outdoor terrace with the most gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. That is before the 5 pools, beach, great food and what Mexico is known for, the best hospitality in the world. The housekeeper could not have been nicer; she made us breakfast and snacks everyday. She catered to the kids by taking special care to make separate kid friendly food. The refrigerator was completely stocked with the food we requested, pico de gallo, guacamole, chips, and chilled wine were waiting for us upon arrival.
On the day of our departure we were able to have a leisurely brunch and then leave for the airport, on our schedule, none of the checkout times you have to deal with at hotels. The five nights we spent in April 2011 will not be the last we spend at Hacienda de Mita. We are already planning our next trip there. I whole-heartedly recommend that if you are considering going to Punta Mita, you stay at Hacienda de Mita. One cannot be disappointed by the accommodations, amenities and gracious hospitality provided here by Mike, his staff, and the staff at Hacienda de Mita, and the wonderful residents of Punta de Mita, Mexico.

Beautiful, elegant and relaxing. This is as close to perfection as one could hope for.
It overlooks the beach and the pool. It is quiet (except for the soothing sound of the surf and the birds in the trees) and provides a total experience that even the best . . . hotels cannot match.
The elegant, fully equipped kitchen provided the perfect opportunity for us to make our own fresh quacamole and margaretas to enjoy on the expansive and comfortable terrace. If you are considering a vacation in paradise with your family or friends this would be the best way to do it.
I have stayed in other condos in Mexico but NONE comes close to this one in elegance, comfort or convenience.
