A Beautiful Stay at Punta Mita
Submitted: April 8, 2011
Stayed: March 2011
We stayed at this villa on the Four Seasons property in Punta Mita over our grandkids', nieces', nephews', etc. recent spring break in late March-early April. The only word to describe the overall experience adequately is "fabulous". The villa itself matches precisely the accompanying description and pictures: its furnishings, materials and general overall class are top of the line. The expansive views of the ocean and surrounding property are truly beautiful, the interior areas all large-sized with a very open and light-filled feeling. Particularly compelling is the openness of the non-bedroom area, the large, beautifully equipped kitchen leading directly into the dining/living room area, which in turn open out to the infinity edge plunge pool (always nicely heated) and the huge outdoor terrace where one could spend hours reading, talking or simply gazing at the surroundings. All the bedrooms are spacious as well, and the outdoor shower/lanai area off one of the master bedrooms is exceptional.
The villa's location is optimal as well. It is very close to the "Lazy River" area, where both kids and adults can float on tubes on a gently flowing waterway, which is one of the property's more popular features for the young folks. The rest of the Four Seasons resort is equally accessible, either by walking or by golf carts driven by staff that are always available short notice. The property, in addition to being beautifully landscaped and maintained, is small enough so that one becomes familiar with it quickly and it is the kind of place where a parent is comfortable letting children roam around because of its small size and accessibility. The main pool overlooks the exquisite, white-sand beaches, and a game/activity room, which remains open for the kids at night and is always well-staffed, is a particularly convenient feature for parents who want to be able to spend a little "adult time" sans kids at or after dinner, knowing where they are and that they are safe and having a good time. And it seemed that the kids had an easy time meeting and playing with other kids whom they had never seen before. There is plenty of good to fine dining (three restaurants on the property itself). There are also numerous tennis courts, which always seem to be available, even at peak times. We are not golfers so cannot comment on the course, but understand that it is world-class.
In short, a great experience in a wonderful Eden-like place!
