  • Relaxing and Great Location

    "We had a relaxing and great trip to Punta de Mita. Having not been to this area of Mexico the condo was in a perfect location. About 40 minutes north of the Puerta Vallarta airport, we never needed a car and could walk everywhere or take a bus for bigger excursions. The condo is close to the beach where we went in the mornings to paddle board, kayak and swim and had a super nice and clean pool for the afternoons. The markets, restaurants and shops were minutes away by foot and you cannot beat the view of this top floor condo. The owners were more than helpful whenever we needed something as well as the employees of the complex."

    "Punta de Mita is a very laid back Mexican Village but with very nice restaurants and friendly people. El Anclote Condominium has a beautiful pool with nice accomodations to encourage friendly conversation, time in the sun and thatched umbrellas. The Condo is clean, roomy and comfortably furnished with a patio that is very well positioned to sit and eat and watch the ocean and the whales as they breach. The condo is well furnished with cooking utensils, microwave, and all the necessities. Owner very helpful when notified of any problem and gets it taken care of promptly. Excellent hi speed wifi and cable TV and DVD player. Multiple air conditioners throughout which are quiet and effecient as one adjusts to the heat, but then ended up rarely using as became aclimated. I spent 5 weeks here the first of the year of 2014 and again 2015. I walked the 3 mile stretch of beach, mostly barefoot, for a good 6 mile trek each day and always seeing something new and interesting in the ocean, beach, air of tidal pools. Excellent markets with everything you need to cook in. Easy bus service into towns along the way to Puerto Vallarta. Wonderful helpful neighbors in adjacent condos to make you feel comfortable. Love it"

  • Condo has it all

    "This is a wonderful top floor condo with a great view of El Anclote Restaurant Row and the beach, Banderas Bay and the Marietas Islands. The condo complex is gated with 24/7 security personnel. The unit is spacious, beautifully furnished, and all the technology works perfectly. Wifi, TV, phones, music, fans, A/C, etc. The maid and cleaning service are superb. She does an outstanding job. We are here off season, and it is very quiet and peaceful in the condo complex and in the town of Punta de Mita. The town has a very safe, friendly feeling. There are several ATMs, but no bank. If you go to one of the banks in Bucerias to exchange money into pesos, don't forget to bring your passport! The boat trip to Islas Marietas is a must do, and cost 1400 pesos through the coop, plus 28 pesos each for park entry. The panga trip takes about 2 hours. The blue and yellow footed boobies on the islands are amazing. Stand up paddle boarding is fun, and cost 150 pesos per hour. Surfing lessons set us back 60 usd per hour. Snorkeling wasn't too great, due to the cloudiness of the water. Swimming in the pool and the ocean are both lovely, with warm water both places. A taxi from PVR airport was 900 pesos, and taking the public bus back to PVR is 28 pesos per person. There's a young lady in town who sells delicious tamales for 10 pesos each. She's out selling them between 4 and 6pm, along the waterfront and near El Campo, where the soccer field is. The mini-supermarkets in town have prices comparable to what we found at the Mega in Bucerias. Our favorite is about 3 blocks away on Ave Pescadores with red Coca-Cola awnings. Chris, the host for this condo is very accommodating and easy to do business with. We would definitely recommend this for a safe, luxurious, mellow (at least this time of year) vacation."

  • Punt Mita

    "We stayed at the El Anclote condominium for two weeks and it was one of the most amazing experiences I have had. The condo was clean, quiet, comfortable. Felt very safe in the gated community and our security guard was so nice. My boyfriend and I enjoyed the beautiful view from the balcony and had fun cooking and BBQing all the fresh vegetables and meats we purchased at the local markets. Our hosts were gracious and so friendly. It felt like home. Can't wait to get back to enjoy the condo again!!! Thank you so much."
