The ocean view was spectacular. After 2 hours there, I was beginning to dread leaving. We stayed 5 days, really stupid. Next time, anything less than a week won’t do. Yes, I there most definitely will be a next time! . . . .
We’ve all had the experience of booking a holiday rental online- looks great on the screen. When we arrive there, we haven’t a clue where the photos we saw came from. Mostly because the place is a far cry from what you were expecting! I can say, for sure that Hacienda de Mita is like that –except it’s so totally spectacular, well beyond what was online, no way photos or descriptions could possibly do it justice!
As soon as we arrived, I marveled at our good luck. In fact, I really felt as though we’d gotten a bargain given the amazing luxury that extended well beyond the physical beauty! Everything was ready and waiting for us. Place was immaculate! Fantastic amenities from the toiletries to the wonderful bedding.
The delightful housekeeper was so unobtrusive, couldn’t figure out when she made beds, cleaned kitchen and even did laundry. Her guacamole — something she left for us in the fridge was an incredible treat we enjoyed with late afternoon cocktails. Homemade salsa was also great. Should have paid closer attention when she was making these.
This particular unit was located just a 2 minute drive from the Beach Club as well as a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive from the charming little village just outside the gates. Great location. We were completely at ease, surprised by how safe I felt and by the security. I’ve been to Mexico many times but this was so special. Had no clue Mexico could be so elegant
I highly recommend this unit to anyone interested in a special holiday. Before we committed to this unit, we checked many others in the Punta Mita Rental community. Frankly, they seemed a bit cookie-cutter like, lacked character, no maid service, and no where as classy.
