Our family vacation to Punta Mita, Mexico was great! Our El Anclote Condominium #3101 was awesome! Beautifully decorated, very spacious, great patio and spectacular views. Our kids loved the beautiful pool. The charming village was just steps away where there are many fantastic restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

We rented unit 1204 (Building 1). Relatives were in Building 3. While we did most of our eating at their place (both had useful kitchens), our rooms and beds were fine. Decorations were nice, and our porch was pleasant and spacious, with a 4 person table. Our prices were WELL below the snazzy resorts nearby, we felt very safe, and the location set us up for great adventures.

Office staff (off on Sundays) were helpful, and the gate guards were super. Be sure to get the gate key for quicker access to the restaurants (many excellent within a very short walk) and beaches below. The best beach for kids (actually called El Anclote) is a bit to the left, where there are few rocks. From the Condominiums, you can also walk around the town where locals live. We found the city tortilla maker!

I took two runs from the Condominiums. For the first, I took a right along the beach, but hit rocks. I ventured onto the golf course, but was thrown out and had to walk back along the rocks. Don't do this if you want to run! For the second, I ran up the hill to the OXXO and took a right on the main road, left onto a 4 lane road to seemingly no-where, then turned around and ran though the less tourist inhabited part of town, and then back home. This was much better.

We stayed in our friends condo 2301 and it was spectacular! They have furnished it in gorgeous artwork and bright Mexican colors! There were three bed rooms and three full baths attached to the bedrooms, large outside terrace, huge open living area and dining room. A very large penthouse unit!
The grounds around the buildings (5) are impeccable and the pool area is set up beautifully. The area is a sleepy beach town, so if you are into night life and exciting bar scenes, this is not for you! The ocean is the main attraction and all water sports are offered here. Also, you can rent a 4 person golf cart to get around, cars are not necessary. Buses run back and forth to Puerto Vallarta every day from 10 am- 10 pm.

We stayed 3 weeks in unit 1303. The description written by the owner is outdated and misleading. It is not luxury. It is not meticulously cleaned. There is no private beach, as this does not exist in Mexico. The PROS: great location for sunrise, sunset, seeing the bay and the whales, close to restaurants, water, grocery stores, bus, very safe. The CONS: our condo (or the building) is old and therefore a hot shower was NOT a guarantee, the drains were slow, the bathroom was old and not clean, the condo and decor are tired! The local woman (nice lady) who cleaned (you have to pay for this) needed clear directions as to what and how to clean. She needed training and perhaps supervision.
The beach closest to this condo is NOT nice, rocky, not suitable for swimmers.

Room Tip: Go for the newer buildings.

My wife and I purchased this Penthouse condo preconstruction in 2000. After over 10 years and over 300 happy rentals this is the first negative review we have ever had. Please see our extensive 100% reviews to back this up. Our descriptions are 100% accurate and we have a full time team continuously maintaining the condo even when unoccupied. Beware, these renters were a problem from minute one. They complained about a slow drain which we cleared with Draino almost instantly. They complained about a burned out light bulb which was replaced almost instantly. We supply free light housekeeping and these people worked our poor staff to no end and to their credit, took it with a smile. Day in and day out they found trivial things to complain about and my poor housekeeper continued to break her back in an effort to please these people. It became evident fairly quickly that there was something fishy going on here. This was confirmed when they finally threatened to leave us a bad review if we didn't pay them over $1000 USD. They insisted it had to be in cash. Yes, we made a bad decision and paid their blackmail money in exchange for not being our first bad review ever. We just wanted this to go away. Yes, you guessed it, they still left a bad review. To add insult to injury, we even had given them a generous discount which we never do during high season.We had heard stories about renters like these but never thought it would happen to us. Its too late for us, but beware to everyone else.

We stayed in Unit#2303 It is beautiful! Very nicely designed and the views are spectacular! The property is very safe and all of the staff is very helpful. I know all of the units are different and this particular one is amazing I loved it! Great Kitchen, laundry and plenty of room to get your own space too. I would definitely recommend this unit!
