Our Guest: Melissa Kelly from Newport Beach, CaliforniaDate of Stay: September 6, 2020 Review Submitted: September 24, 2020 We recently stayed at this fantastic property, traveling with our two teenagers. The beachfront location in Hacienda de Mita was incredible. Listen to the ocean from the beautiful lanai or walk down the stairs onto the beach for a swim. Town is an easy 5 minute walk from the property providing great access to the local restaurants.The unit is beautifully decorated, the beds were extremely comfortable. We had more than enough room for the four of us. Wifi was exceptional.An added bonus to this unit is Susanna, a lovely housekeeper/cook who kept the unit spotless and provided fantastic meals for our enjoyment. We had Susanna prepare breakfast daily as well as lunch. She was flexible around our activities and was always eager to please. The concierge service was top notch, greeting us on arrival with chips, guacamole and margaritas. They were on call to run out for groceries as well as make reservations for activities and restaurants. Our family did a snorkel trip to the Mariettas and an ATV adventure. Both were fantastic. I highly recommend HDM-206 for an amazing family vacation.

Our Guest: Tracy F. from Scottsdale, ArizonaDate of Stay: July 2020 Review Submitted: August 6, 2020 We recently stayed at Haciendas De Mita unit 206 and had an absolutely AMAZING vacation. We were first greeted with fresh salsa, guacamole, chips and margaritas. It was such a nice treat after traveling for the day.
The concierge and Susana (housekeeper/chef) were both there upon our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed. They even went grocery shopping for us prior to our arrival and stocked our fridge so we could start enjoying our vacation right away. The place was beautifully furnished & decorated, very clean, sanitary and accommodated our family of four perfectly. The bedrooms are all very sizable with very comfortable beds and sheets and also have their own bathrooms. The outdoor terrace is huge with beautiful views of the ocean, sunsets and pool. We enjoyed having our morning coffee and sitting out there in the evenings watching the sunsets.
The concierge was very accomodating with anything we needed and helping us with reservations, etc. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Susana. She was a huge part in making our vacation most enjoyable. She made breakfast and lunch for us everyday and dinner a few times. She is an amazing cook and we loved everything she made. She would set the table nice for us every time we ate and would basically cook anything we asked for. She kept the place spotless and was always very accommodating. You can tell she loves her job and goes the extra mile to make everyone happy. She even did our laundry everyday.
We felt so spoiled and loved every minute of it. We were sad to leave Susana and this beautiful place and look forward to coming back soon.

Our Guest: Steve S. from Chicago, IllinoisDate of Stay: March 2020 Review Submitted: April 13, 2020 Top of the line furnishings, televisions, internet communication. Most importantly for us was the warm, welcoming smile of Susana, the cook and housekeeper.
I just spent a week in 206HDM with my family of four. What a great trip. We had never been to the area and had no idea of what to expect of the area of Punta Mita. On the ride from the airport, the environment was pretty much like we expected as we had been to Puerto Vallarta before. Once we hit the Punta Mita property, we were immediately stunned at the beauty of the vegatation and landscaping. Stone paved roads and immaculate grounds throughout. This is not a small area. There are plenty of safe, groomed walking and biking trails and seeing visitors scoot about in golf carts added to the relaxed, quaint vibe. Security at all property entrances added to the sense of security. The town of Punta Mita was very nice as well but more commercial with lots of nice restaurants. We ate at the sushi place SiSushi, and the Mexican food place Si Senior, both owned by the same owner. We were pleasantly surprised by the food but the atmosphere was top notch.
I haven’t said much about the property yet, as the photos are very accurate. Top of the line furnishings, televisions, internet communication. Most importantly for us was the warm, welcoming smile of Susana, the cook and housekeeper. We arrived late on a Saturday evening and she had margaritas, chips and salsa waiting for us that were delicious. We met her the next morning after she made an amazing breakfast for us. Her cooking surpassed our needs and we had breakfast every am and lunch most days at the villa. I would go back just for the service that she provided. The condo itself is enormous, clean, comfortable. AC in all rooms. Access to the pool and to the other beach clubs on the penninsula were just an added surprise. the beach clubs have great service and were very welcoming as well.
Can’t wait to go back. One of the top vacations I have ever had.

Our Guest: Steve S. from Chicago, IllinoisDate of Stay: March 2020 Review Submitted: April 13, 2020 We had a great stay in unit 206! Susanna was the absolute best.
We had her make us breakfast everyday and lunch for 2 days. Everything was delicious and fresh! The unit has everything you need and is very comfortable. Access to the golf cart and beach clubs was perfect. We also liked being able to walk to town and have dinner. We spent New Years Eve at the St. Regis and it was so much fun.
Our kids really enjoyed the week. We can’t wait to come back. Especially to see Susanna!

Our Guest: Judy L. from Vancouver, BCDate of Stay: November 2019 Review Submitted: December 28, 2019 We celebrated our 50th anniversary with our children and grandchildren at Hacienda de Mita over Thanksgiving. The location, the furnishings and the cook are fabulous. I can’t say enough about Susana the cook and housekeeper.
Her meals were wonderful and she kept the condo SPOTLESS. She was highlight of our week and we all wanted to take her home with us. She doesn’t speak English but we all muddled along quite well.
Our concierge Sara was attentive but the small problems we had were not resolved.
The three main bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and beautifully furnished. The outside area and furniture are exceptional. The view of the pool and ocean are fantastic. We loved sitting outside, enjoying each other’s company, listening to music in the evening.
It’s hard to find enough good adjectives to describe Hacienda de Mita 206 despite the small inconveniences and truly, all the inconveniences that I noted were very small. All in all a wonderful vacation. You will love it.

Our Guest: Marta K. from New York, Ontario, CADate of Stay: October 2019 Review Submitted: December 9, 2019 Our family recently stayed at HDM 206 and as per the pictures the property is located beachfront with beautiful views of the ocean, sunsets and beach. The beach clubs that your stay at HDM 205 are also beautiful and are just a short golf cart ride away. They all have amazing beaches, pools and attentive food and beverage service.
The absolute best part of our stay was the care and attention the cook Savanah gave our family. My son and my husband both have celiac disease and Savanah was able to clean the kitchen, modify meals to ensure everything was gluten free and delicious. We cannot thank her enough. She was also an amazing housekeeper and the property was spotless at all times.
Betty the concierge was also very helpful with providing us with information about the region, renting a second golf cart and proposing a good company for us to do a snorkeling tour of Marieta’s island.
We had a fabulous time at HDM 206 and hope to book it again soon.

Our Guest: Patrick L. from New York, New YorkDate of Stay: November 2019 Review Submitted: December 1, 2019 This place is very well furnished with taste and plenty of space for everyone to enjoy. It was very cosy to sit on the very large terrace overlooking the beach and the sunrise every morning.
Very close to the village we could easily go there with the golf cart and enjoy the local offerings including two very nice coffee places where we enjoyed our morning Espresso. Susanna turned out to be a real chef! She made some local speciality products and it was absolutely delicious! Fresh fruits every day. She worked nonstop the whole day and you barely noticed she was there. Susanna made our stay very special!
The owner Mike was making sure everything we needed was there. Consierge service was excellent.
We will be back

Let me start by saying the resort itself is spectacular, the grounds are kept clean and maintained daily. Security around the resort is great,/strong>
only people that are supposed to be in the resort will be allowed to enter. We visited at the end of July during their rainy season. Luckily the only time it rained was over-night when we were sleeping.
We stayed at the Hacienda Mita in Condo 206, which is right on the beach. There were 6 adults in our party and the condo worked out perfectly. Plenty of space for all of us, nicely decorated and the view from the balcony was stunning. Susanna (Chef) was amazing. She made our breakfast and lunch every day according to our schedule and the food was amazing (not to mention the juice she made as well). Having your clothes washed and ironed everyday was an added bonus. Each building in the Hacienda Mita had their own pool. We felt like we had the pool to ourselves. The beach clubs are very nice, especially the Kupuri beach club. One piece of advice, if you want to save a little money try to book directly with Mike (the owner) instead of the management company.
The location of the condo was ideal. It is a short five-minute golf cart ride into town or a 3-minute walk on the beach to restaurant row. Our morning walks consisted of either walking the paths around the resort or a walk into town for coffee. You really don’t need a car. Getting around the resort and into town in the golf cart is really easy. Of course, plenty of water activities are available throughout the resort and Punta Mita.
There is a nice variety of restaurants in town in terms of cuisine and price as well. All of the places we ate, including local coffee shops seem to use bottle water (no problems for us). There is a small grocery store (Mercado Ollin) that has enough of what you’ll need and is geared more toward tourist in case you forgot something or need to pick something up. If you are comfortable enough shopping in stores where the locals’ shop, you can save some money.
If I had to come up with a drawback, is that most of the places close around 11:00 pm in case you felt like getting a drink a little later.
Getting from the airport we used Jaltemba Transport. Gilberto and his team were great, very dependable and very nice people.
