I had the opportunity recently in April to visit Punta Mita, a beachfront village and residential community in Mexico, located just about an hour north of Puerto Vallarta. It is gated and consists of a couple of luxury hotels and many privately owned villas. The Four Seasons Punta Mita is an excellent choice to stay here if you are looking for a full-service resort that caters to couples and families alike.
The variety in the facilities is such that anyone would be happy here! From an adults-only pool to a family pool, three restaurants, expansive spa, tennis courts, lazy river, kids club.. you name it! I should add that the kids facilities were especially impressive.. with an indoor treehouse and play area to a huge outdoor jungle gym. I think the kids would also have tons of fun tubing on the lazy river! As with all Four Seasons resorts, the Kids for All Seasons program is complimentary (here, for ages 5 and older.. younger may be accompanied by an adult or babysitter.)
As far as accommodations go, the property is spread out over 10-12 buildings that have 1-2 stories each, and there are casitas, suites, and villas. My accommodation was a Garden View Suite, which was fantastic as it had a large living area, outdoor plunge pool, expansive terrace, and glimpses at the ocean. Ask me about the best setup for your family.. some rooms can interconnect, and some suites are exactly beachfront, a plus when traveling with the littlest ones.. not having to schlep all your beach stuff around!
But in terms of accommodation.. my personal favorite was probably the 5-bedroom oceanfront villa that I saw.. it is PERFECT for multi-gen family trips, or maybe a group of couples celebrating a milestone birthday or other occasion. The Four Seasons Punta Mita has 3-5 bedroom villas, ranging from ocean view to ocean front, and some come with personal butlers.
So if you are looking for a full service Mexico resort for couples or families, just an easy drive north of Puerto Vallarta (breakfast in the US, lunch on the beach- it is so close!) then you really cannot go wrong with the Four Seasons Punta Mita. I am especially pleased to be able to offer my clients the following EXCLUSIVE Four Seasons Preferred Partner amenities:
- Daily full American breakfast for two people per bedroom, served through In-Room Dining or in the hotel restaurant (including buffets
- Food and beverage credit of USD100
- Upgrade of one category, based on availability at time of check-in (excluding signature suites and villas)
