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... More

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 The description written by the owner is outdated and misleading.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.... More

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,... More

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... More

We rented condo for the last week of March. I feel we paid top dollars for this unit. When we arrived the place was not totally neat. Here are some of the cons: twin beds pretty uncomfortable (we were not able to sleep on them); ceiling fan not functioning on main bedroom, no hair dryer as promised, the condo is... More

The Punta Mita area is a great location for a quiet, sunny vacation with easy access to great food and multiple beaches for surf, paddle boards, swimming and beach walks. The people are wonderful - friendly and helpful and there are multiple restaurants for all meals. Unfortunately I found the 2011 review of #5202 El Anclote Condo after I had... More

All these activities... More

I found the review regarding condo 5202 the week before leaving to stay in the condo. I admit I was a little worried and upon arrival would have to agree with the previous reviewer that it does need a little TLC. BUT overall, for the price and location, the condo is completely stayable. I went with my boyfriend for a... More

My friend and I both surf, and we stayed in El Anclote this past Nov 17-24 hoping to score surf at the break right in front of the condos. Unfortunately, it wasn't happening during our stay, which only gives me another reason to come back (apparently it's more consistent in the winter or the summer)! And when I do, it... More

We recently stayed at El Anclote condos in Punta Mita. Great vacation and El Anclote was a wonderful complex. Spectacular view and meticulously maintained grounds. These are unit-owned rentals. Condo 5202 is in very poor condition and not at all as advertised. We paid top dollar for the unit and feel like we were taken advantage of by the owner/rental... More
