Great for kids, and surfing adults
Super nice condo. It was nice being on the first floor so we could walk out to the pool, but I wouldn't mind being on the second or third floor for some privacy. Either would be great. I think this condo complex is the best value in Punta Mita given its location and the prices of the rentals. The condo had everything that we needed for the week. I found the beds really comfortable, but sadly the air conditioner in the master bedroom wasn't as good as all of the others in the condo. It was really great having a surf break and surf rentals right in front of the condo. Sadly the beach had some rocks that made entering and exiting the water challenging (not the fault of the condo of course). My only gripes would be that there were several lightbulbs that were burnt up. I know power surges are frequent so this can be hard to keep up with, but next time please check. I also didn't ask the host to fix while we were there, and I'm sure she would have done so. Given that this condo was on the first floor there were some mosquitos in the second bedroom that were biting the kids at night. We fixed this by running the air conditioner more often, and it kept them at bay. One final thing that would be nice is an extra drinking water jug. This can't cost that much, and would save us a bunch of hassle while on vacation.
Wonderful stay at El Farito - highly recommend!
Our family of six (3 adults, 3 kids) had a fantastic 2-week stay at El Farito. The condo is very well appointed, the location in front of the pool and with direct access to the beach is perfect, and everything was as described in the listing. With young kids, being on the ground floor was a huge advantage. We had a fantastic time and if the unit is available we would highly recommend it to anyone.
Lots of DVDs for kids, nice library for adults, close to corner stores. We didn’t rent a car and everything we needed was within walking distance. We even hopped the bus for day trips to Sayulita and Destiladaras!
We were comfortable and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We do have a couple updates just to add clarification to previous reviews:
- next door is not really a construction site, more like an abandoned construction site. We noted zero building activity while we were here and it looks like action has been stalled for some time. It’s a tiny eyesore but from our condo’s location it is hardly noticeable
- as mentioned in other posts, there is (on some days) a noticeable smell in the laundry room and the second bathroom. This is very common in developing countries and comes from the drainage system. It is minor and was never an issue for us. If you have travelled in developing countries before you will recognize the smell.
- the oven/stove could use an update as not all of the burners worked. The oven does work we just had to find the right knob to turn it on. Again, a minor issue and did not impact our stay at all.
Surfing, beach and pool
Loved the ground level access to the pool and beach and ability to walk to town. We spent several days at La Lancha beach which is an 8 min drive. Great surfing and sandy beach. The master bed was very comfortable.
First time in Punta de Mita
We had a great time in Punta de Mita during a busy Easter week. We ate delicious food at a different restaurant each night, chartered fishing boats for three days, and enjoyed the beautiful ocean water and sunshine. The locals were warm and helpful.
Family Vacation success
Just got back from an excellent family vacation. The condo was excellent. VERY large, with a huge sliding glass door that opens to the pool. Everyone staying there was very pleasant. Staff come and sweep the sand in the pool and courtyard every night.
Well equipped kitchen and common area barbecue. Couldn't get the oven to work, but that's fine. Didn't try the television.
Excellent selection of books!
Apparently a big storm blew in in the winter and took away a bunch of the beach sand so it's little rocky now. No big deal! The sand is a little better for swimming with kids a hundred meters to the east. The surf was excellent.
Thank you to Alejandra who answered all questions promptly and helped figure out transportation. She's the best.
The walk into town is short and easy. I also strongly recommend the pescaderia (fish shop) up the hill, across from the school and football (soccer) pitch.
Amazingly convenient and quiet!
This property has a rare blend of being steps from everything, yet secluded and quiet. Very comfortable and peaceful!
We're glad you enjoyed it Dan! Hope you come back next year!!
