This boutique hotel is small, with only seven rooms. But each room features ideal amenities for families. Each room is uniquely and colorfully decorated, but all are similar in amenities. Each room features a fully equipped kitchenette with large refrigerator, stovetop and oven, coffeemaker, sink, purified water and plenty of cookware and glassware. There is a small dining table or countertop seating and the bathrooms feature a standup shower. There is air-conditioning and complimentary Wi-Fi, but no televisions in the rooms.
The main difference in the rooms is a bed choice. Rooms with one queen bed, two queen beds or a queen bed plus a single bed are available. The rooms can accommodate between three and four people and cribs are available.
Hotel La Quinta del Sol is a gem in Punta de Mita. My wife and I brought our two teenagers for surfing, spearfishing and just all around beachin and had blast. Hotel La Quinta del Sol is a small hotel with a big view and even bigger heart. The location, rooms, and managers are great. Nico and Mary are the managers and they made us feel right at home even before we walked in to the hotel (they met us at the gate). They were more than happy to help arrange activities and recommend tour companies. And every time they were spot on. They are great ambassadors for the Punta de Mita area. The hotel is directly across from a great beach that has a private area with hammocks and shade for hotel guests. If the beach seems too crowded for your taste just take a five minute walk to more open sand. There is a surf break directly out front which was great for us to get in a surf before other activities. And if you are surfing make sure you hire a guide and boat and hit the point or La Lancha. And if you need lessons ask Nico and he will arrange it for you. The hotel has several boards and SUPs for rent through a partnership with a surf tour company. If you don’t like what they stock they can have other boards brought in through their partnership. So there is no need to lug your boards on the airlines and deal with that hassle. It is only a short walk to other town amenities and there are great restaurants all around – sushi, local flavor, pizza, any food you want. The rooms are really nice, comfortable, and well decorated. We stayed on the first floor which has a huge terrace and great view. The fact that all the rooms have an efficiency kitchen (stove, fridge, microwave, blender) is great for a change of pace for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And if you go fishing or spearfishing and snag a few it is always great to cook your own. Now the icing on the cake is the rooftop terrace. This deck has a huge grill, refrigerator, sink, blenders, tables, chairs, hammocks, covered area. Perfect place to unwind with a beer or marg and some grilled food after surfing or fishing. You can rent a golf cart, but I recommend renting a car. You can go more places and don’t need to hire a driver. However the bus system is pretty good, it just takes a bit longer. So remember some things to do….surf, go spearfish, check out Sayulita, and San Pancho, hit up the Fat Cat for a cruise, go for a hike, or mtn bike or just chill. I know you will have a great stay. I cannot wait to head back and when I do I want to bring some friends from home who will be just as impressed.
This place is so unique.Private beach directly in front of the property. . The hosts Nico and Mary were phenomenal. The small touches all added up as well. Room was sooo comfortable, had everything required for cooking etc. Even had water cooler with unlimited water bottles so cooking, drinking etc was not only considerably cheaper and way more convenient but never worried about the Montezumas revenge syndrome. The roof top patio was such a delight. Whether to relax and watch a peaceful ocean sunset in a hammock or BBQ in the fully equipped kitchen it was the perfect place to unwind
