outstanding vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this house. We stayed with 4 children age 4-7 and 6 adults, with more than enough space for all of us. The house and rooms are beautiful, and the pictures don't do the view justice. Beautiful views of the mountains and Puerto Vallarta. We saw whales breaching every day just off the shore.

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. We thought it might feel strange to have someone cooking for us and in the house while we were there, but we got used to it very quickly. The food was excellent, and they were able to accommodate one vegetarian and 4 less than adventurous kids with each meal. We had them cook two dinners our first two nights to allow us to settle in which went very well. All the groceries we had asked for in advance were there and well chosen.

There is plenty to do in the area, one member of our party went surfing by renting a board at a nearby surf shop every morning. Lessons were available as well, at very reasonable rates. The beach is great, very good waves for body surfing or boogie boarding, not ideal for actual surfing. Mostly sandy beach, but water shoes are a good idea as some areas are a little rocky. A short walk down the beach gets you to the one in front of the W resort which is beautiful as well.

For anyone worried about safety in Mexico right now, we never felt concerned. The house is in a double gated community. The staff took us out two afternoons and dropped us off in Sayulita and Punta Mita where we stayed through dinner. Taking taxis back was easy and felt safe. it would be very easy to get to the W for dinner, we went for drinks one evening. A golf cart comes with the property.

The price seems a lot at first, but given what you get for the money it is a very good deal. Given the number of people we had, the meals, and the service, the cost is much better than at a resort.

Highly recommend this place, we are already thinking of when we can go back.

Wonderful stay at Hacienda Sofia Cristina

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful visit to Hacienda Sofia Cristina - a group of 12 ladies. The staff was friendly and very accommodating to our needs. The meals and service were excellent. We had dinner at the villa two nights as well, a good idea as it was easier to talk and no transportation needed. The location is beautiful and close to Sayulita, Punta de Mita and La Cruz for day trips. We did a day trip to Sayulita (great shopping, dining and a busy beach) and a private sunset catamaran cruise with Puta Mita Expeditions in La Cruz where we saw many whales and dolphins. Dinner at Frascati in La Cruz afterwards. We also saw whales from the house every day. The beach below the house is rocky and small at low tide. We opted for Veneros Beach Club - you can walk or have the staff drive you there - you have to use the dedicated pool area to lounge around, but can access the beach for a walk or swim. You can pay $75+ for a beach chair set up on the sand. The W Hotel is right next door for food and beverage service. Massages available at the pool or beach ($45/hr) - not the best but didn't expect much being on the beach. Overall a fabulous vacation and I would definitely return for another visit.

A Perfect Vacation Rental w/ Amazing Staff

  • 5 of 5

The house was ready upon our arrival, and the incredibly friendly staff provided anything we needed. The pictures don't do this place justice. Even with 15 adults, there was plenty of space. Access to the beach below is a hidden gem. Would highly recommend for a nice getaway and will definitely be back soon!

Perfect - loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house and staff are all first class.

The house is beautiful and has everything you need. The grounds pool and spa are beautiful and well kept. The beaches by the house are spectacular and perfect for swimming and boogie boarding.

The view from the house across the Bay of Banderas is spectacular.

The house is great for a family or couple who want a romantic beautiful experience.

We all loved our stay - can't say enough about how perfect a get away this is - we can't wait to go back.

El Farallon #14, Punta Mita - Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We are well heeled and well traveled. We've stayed here for a week each of the last 4 years. The ocean views from the infinity pool and Jacuzzi are gorgeous. The AC, Jacuzzi, cable TV and internet are always working. The staff is attentive, helping us book restaurants, boat tours, horseback riding, massages, etc. as needed. The staff manager, Orelia, is an excellent cook, and has given us many memorable meals (fish tacos, sashimi, BBQ ribs, homemade soups, frozen lemon pie, chiles rellenos, steak in wine & mushroom sauce). Clean, comfortable, and well maintained. It's a safe, lush and tranquil environment to relax and enjoy yourself in privacy on a bluff above the ocean, and create some wonderful memories for your family and/or friends.

amazing place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Sofia Cristina! Such a beautiful property and a great place to take multiple families. The staff is wonderful and Oralias (sp) food was amazing. Very flexible and we enjoyed having just the two meals. That way we would explore other options for dinner. The Punta Mita beach club is a wonderful beach to go to and I would definitely make plans to go there a time or two. Has a great place for lunch and pool all right in the beach area. You can also walk to Four Seasons and St. Regis and check them out from this spot. Joseph who manages the property was very easy to work with and really made all things happen that we were interested in. We used Vallarta Adventures for a Dolphin swim and it was worth every penny. Just a side note that the cruise ships come in on Tuesday and Wednesday and that the adventures get booked, so make sure if your heart is set on something that you plan around that. Sayulita is a fun surf town that is a must see!! You can take surf lessons there or get a massage on the beach for $25.00!

Lastly, the setting is just breathtaking where the home sits. It is really hard to drag yourself away to do adventures when you have a place this pretty and peaceful! We hope to go back!
