Editor’s Review of Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita

Punta Mita is a developed coastal community encompassing both the little fishing village of Punta de Mita and a number of private homes and high-end hotels. The Four Seasons Punta Mita was one of the first to open here in 1999 and has led the development of this region as a popular destination in Riviera Nayarit. However, builders worked diligently to maintain the natural landscape as construction was underway, including a massive 250-year-old black fig tree at the entrance of the resort.

Four Seasons Punta Mita was purchased in 2014 by Mr. Microsoft, Bill Gates, and is consistently rated a 5-star resort. It's not likely you'll see Bill and Melinda during your vacation, but they do check in here a couple times a year.

... more /> Two things distinguish this Four Seasons from others. First, it is the only resort in the franchise to employ a cultural concierge. His name is Enrique Alejos, and a more knowledgeable human being on all things Nayarit simply cannot be found. From the amazing sea turtle release program to tequila tastings to the language of the local Huichol tribe, Enrique understands it and helps you and your children understand it with equal passion. He's frequently seen around the property doing art tours, nature walks or stargazing programs, but when not, you can find him in a corner office of one of the boutiques, always ready to talk and share his passion for the local Mexican culture.

The second distinction is one beer drinkers in your family will appreciate. This Four Seasons is the only one to have its very own beer, bottled and labeled distinctly for the resort. It's called Cora Beer, a smooth ale brewed in old tequila barrels in the state of Jalisco. Make sure you order one. Or two.

This resort simply has everything a typical family could ask for in a beach destination. It's possible to spend your entire vacation onsite and enjoy every minute of it, but get out and explore the fishing village of Punta de Mita as well. Its charm and appeal is what attracted the likes of Bill Gates to this area in the first place. less

Rooms

This is a 5-star resort, so just about anything your family would want or need is available, as well as any configuration of rooms, villas and services. The number of choices is as vast as the Pacific Ocean, visible from all rooms.

The main hotel is 3 stories tall with 175 rooms, all with full balconies or terraces. A limited number of connecting rooms are available. Book early to ensure your family gets what they need.

The property has a strong Wi-Fi signal throughout and all of the amenities you might need from DVD players to bathrobes to iPod docking stations. Cribs and rollaways are available at no extra charge.

Note: If a standard size bathtub is important to bathe your toddlers, be sure to express that when you book your vacation. Many rooms come with whirlpool tubs, but not standard bathtubs.

Villas
Your own private pool, outdoor shower and barbeque area are among the amenities of a private villa. You have a choice between four and five bedrooms, so this is especially nice with extended family or friends. There are 35 villas in the rental pool, all with rustic, yet individualized Mexican decor. Shopping services are available and will have the full kitchen stocked when you arrive. Cook yourself, or bring a chef in for a special meal.

Suites
The eights suites are situated on a magnificent hillside overlooking the Bay of Banderas. These are equipped with kitchenettes and plunge pools and range from one bedroom to five bedrooms. Some bedrooms are configured with twin beds, but most have double or king size beds.

Casitas
These are what you would consider the standard rooms in most hotels, but there's really nothing standard about them. You have a choice of king beds or doubles and cribs, based upon your family's needs. The beachfront casitas are ground level and include a hammock on the terrace. It's an incredibly spacious room with a lovely couch/lounge area, work area, mini-bar -- and everything you could want just a phone call away.
