"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."

"Just got back from a trip to Punta De Mita and stayed with another family in this amazing condo. First off the view and scenery from the 60ft balcony is one of the most spectacular I have ever seen. The condo sits high up on a hill over looking the town, Bay of Banderas, and the mountains. From sunrise to sunset you can see it all. The condo is so spacious and had everything you could think of. Each bedroom had it's own bath with the 2 masters having access to the balcony. The well stocked kitchen and main living area were huge. With 2 families we never felt crowded. The town of Punta De Mita is so beautiful and very clean plus the locals were friendly, friendly, and let me say it again friendly. After we arrived it did not take long to figure out we could let our 6 kids ages 10-15 walk around town with no problems at all. The beach was only a minute walk from the condo and the surfing/paddle boarding was world class. I live at the beach and the waves there were nothing short of spectacular (word of caution- the bottom is rocks and coral so I highly suggest booties or water shoes). There was a wave for every skill level and all you had to do was paddle right off the beach. For the more experienced you could take panga from the beach ($60hr and ask for Juan) and ride about 5-10mins to some world class breaks. With the condo being part of Hotel Cinco we were able to take advantage of the beach front chairs, umbrella, and pool. You never needed to leave the beach as you could have food and drinks brought to you while you relaxed. The real bonus was being able to have access to Horacio and Rodrigo the concierge at the hotel. Those guys were fantastic and made the trip so easy. Anything you needed from surf/paddle boards (plenty of boards to choose from $200 for the week for a SUP, airport transfer (call them ahead of time to arrange-$250 round trip from PVR), snorkeling trips (highly recommend taking the trip to the Marietta Islands). They did it all and were so friendly!! Not knowing what to expect when we arrived it turned out to be one of the best vacations we have ever taken. No car needed as we never left the town. We got up surfed, relaxed on the beach, surfed in the afternoon, had dinner then repeat for 7 days. Plush accommodations, relaxing atmosphere, epic surfing made for an amazing trip. We are coming back next year for sure!!"

"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"

"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."
