Hacienda de Mita 206 was just what we were looking for ~ a quiet getaway from it all.
The pre-planning was excellent. My son has many dietary restrictions and the concierge worked with me to create special meals. All of the requested groceries were waiting for us when we arrived; along with some unexpected margaritas, chips, salsa, and guacamole. We also had the concierge arrange our ground transfers from the airport to the resort and that was perfect!
Susanna and Gloria were sweet and worked very hard. It was a gift to have clean laundry every day! I didn’t know how the “cooking” would go, because I wasn’t sure we would be at the condo for all the meals. But, we learned to enjoy it. 9:30 am daily breakfast, then we would take the golf cart and relax at one of the beach clubs till 1:30 when we would return after lunch. After lunch my husband would usually take a nap or go down to the pool just in front of the condo and my son and I would go out exploring on the golf cart.
We LOVED having access to all of the beach clubs. Not all units within the Punta Mita gates offer this access, it is dependent on the membership level of the owner of the unit. Each beach club was very different and I really couldn’t tell you which one I enjoyed most.
We ate in the town of Punta Mita most nights, if we weren’t home eating leftovers from lunch. The concierge recommended 4 different restaurants in town and we tried them all & were not disappointed. It is a very quick walk from the condo to the town. You can also take the golf cart into town, but I wouldn’t recommend it unless you wanted to go to the market that is on the upper section of town (just outside the resort gate). It’s a very nice market with lots of organic options & still a simple walk but having the cart to get your groceries home is handy.
There is so much to do in the area, but honestly we were there to rest & enjoy some quiet time. The condo was extremely quiet, you will not hear the next door neighbors & this was very important to us. The resort is overwhelmingly peaceful. But, there are still lots of activities to enjoy on the property; we went to the driving range at the golf course, paddle boarded, enjoyed massages (at the Hacienda de Mita beach club), visited the on property resorts, and did a bit of shopping in town.
Beautiful days and restful nights. I must mention the comfortable beds and high end linens. Overall it was an A++ vacation.
