We enjoyed this home so much that we have already booked next year for July 4th, 2016! Everything from the minute we arrived, we were treated like royalty from the staff.. We were greeted with cool towels and margaritas!! As we all (14) settled into our rooms, we then were called to an AMAZING first dinner!! The week continues with them cooking the most amazing foods, from steaks and Mexican food, to the best seafood I have ever tasted! The view from the pool is just amazing.. The view from just about anywhere in this home is amazing! As the week went on, we did some fishing were we caught tuna and 2 of us caught sailfish!! We also enjoyed a great day zip lining and were fed the best pizza in Mexico! We can't leave out Luis, the best driver ever.. He was always happy to see us and put up with all our shopping trips!!
We can't wait to see Hector and his staff again! Oh shoot.. I forgot to mention the sunset cruise that they offer... It's a MUST!! Love love love this place!!
My husband and I just returned from the most fabulous vacation we have ever had! We traveled with friends for the week for fishing and relaxation. The house, the views, the staff....INCREDIBLE! Hecor and his wife, Modesta (Modi), could not have been more accomodating during our stay. They made us feel so welcome and taken care of....we didn't want to leave them! The food was delicious and Hector delivered on the fact that he could make anything, and it would be the best ever! We can't wait to return!
We just returned from a week in paradise with a group of 8 friends (1/8/12 -1/14/12). This place is simply amazing the property is clean and safe. We chose to hire a driver, Arturo, who picked us up from the airport and drove us to all of our destinations. The staff was wonderful! Hector is an amazing chef who's food would rival any 5 star resort. Modesta, Patty and Hector Jr. provided the best care to our group. I would recommend this house to everyone. It is a relaxing oasis and you can leave all your cares behind. It was very difficult to leave and return back to reality. Thanks once again to Aurtro, Hector, Modesta, Hector Jr., and Patty you made our stay fantasic and we truly apperciate your exceptional level of care.
We just returned from a family vacation (12-25 thru 1-1) with our two children (ages 2 and 5) and our extended family. This was one of the best vacations ever. From the moment we arrived form the States, everything was exceptional. We were met at the airport by Cesar, who took us to the home. His English was perfect. The room we stayed in--The Casita Suite--worked well for our mini-family of 4. The staff--Hector, Modesta, and Patty--could not have been more attentive or welcoming. Hector is fantastic chef--his meals were healthy, bountiful and beautiful to look at it. La Punta is a great community. We played tennis everyday and the tennis pro, Salvator is as good, if not better, than any pro at an US tennis resort.
