“Small is beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

My family traveled away from Puerto Vallarta to the small fishing village of Punta de Mita, and into the warm embrace of Larissa and Rami, managers of La Quinta del Sol. Although the hotel is small, just seven rooms (with kitchens), it lacked for nothing in the way of creature comforts. More importantly, whenever there was anything we needed, Larrisa or Rami (or both) made sure that we got it. The hotel is perfectly situated just up some steps and across a quiet street from the beach. We had stopped at a supermercado on the way from PV and stocked up on breakfast and lunch items. We then sat out on the large veranda in front of our rooms for the first two meals of the day. Could not have been any nicer...eating your own food and watching the waves roll in past the breakwater. If you are looking for a very low key place to vacation with an emphasis on relaxing then La Quinta del Sol is your place!

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor have a great view of the ocean.

If you're looking for a quiet place to enjoy a margarita and nap on a beachside hammock, you're looking at the right hotel accommodation.
Pros: After a smooth airport pickup in a taxi arranged by the hotel, we were greeted with cold beer and water. Rami gave us the run down about nearby restaurants, supermarkets and miscellaneous information that proved to be useful. Beautiful eat-in kitchen with stove and oven, storage space, hot shower, shower gel/shampoo, beach towels and a beach bag. There was also unlimited filtered water. The air conditioning worked perfectly, but the fan was usually sufficient. The rooftop was perfect for watching the sunset or relaxing in the hammocks. The beach was only a few steps across the street, perfectly clean, never crowded.
Cons: Wi-Fi was strong on the right side of the room, but nearly nonexistent on the left. First floor room has great view of hotel patio, but no oceanview.
I hope I can return to La Quinta del Sol very soon.

The location was terrific stop and get goodies because you have a full kitchen and fridge. There is a surf break out front. Amazing views. Rami and Larissa and Sasha and Daisy are super cool. Their tips for restaurants surfing general knowledge were impeccable. Super highly recommend it we miss it already!!

We just got back from our typical 2 weeks in Puerto Vallarta. We were unable to get our first week at our usual spot in PV so decided to have an adventure and go up north. We are so glad we did. We have been vacationing in Mexico for over 30 years. We like the architecture of Old Mexico and the charm of the locals. La Quinta del Sol was a perfect spot.
It is simple here. They have wifi but no TV's which we love. The rooms are simple and comfortable with nice thoughtful touches that one expects to find in a first class hotel. The rooms all have new bathrooms and are spotless. The beds are super comfortable and there is AC if you need it. The kitchens are well equipped. The place is open to other units on each of the 2 floors, but you can stay to yourself if you want. All the people we met there were so nice and friendly and interesting and very respectful of everyone's privacy. There is a third floor rooftop deck that is really big. Great views and comfortable furniture with a grill and a telescope.
There is no doubt in our minds that the best thing about this place is Rami and Larissa, the managers. They are so fun, nice, knowledgable and super helpful with anything and everything. They were great with our 13-year old son and set up surfing lessons for him. I had one of the best massages of my life from a gal they recommended. All the restaurants they sent us to were tops. Last but not least, there is Sasha the dog. And sometimes Daisy comes to visit. They are as laid back as the village of their birth and oh so sweet.
The only downside for me was that the beach had sustained a lot of damage this year which took away a lot of sand so there were rocks everywhere both in and out of the water. Not to say you can't get in the water, it's just not easy and can be dangerous if you are not very careful of the rocks both large and small. And no pool.
Upon our arrival, I was a bit bummed because I love the beach and the water. But after a few days in this simple little village, I let go of that and enjoyed the first class treatment of Rami and Larissa and deeply relaxed.

Hola Randall B, It was our luck that your usual place in Puerto Vallarta was unavailable so that you were able to come and stay here at La Quinta del Sol...we so enjoyed meeting you and your family. Thank you so much for your kind words. We're also happy to report that with the change in swell, the sand has started to cover many of the rocks on the beach and we're sure that by the time you return it will be back to it's former glorious self! Saludos!

Searching for anything that wasn't a large hotel in the Puerto Vallarta area or wasn't a self-contained gringo gated experience I found La Quinta on Trip Advisor. How freakin' lucky did we get! The hotel is clean, the rooms beautiful, (no TV - yes!) and the management extremely helpful. We spent a perfect 5 days because La Quinta's location made it easy to meet locals and walk around town to explore, and the more than helpful managers were available to recommend restaurants and offered directions for buses to other towns, and we had the beach right out our front door and at night the view from the top balcony of the hotel was a relaxing way to end our day and we were in walking distance to great food, and the hotel had boogey boards to use and so our vacation had the perfect mix of relaxation, romance, and activity because La Quinta and Larissa and Rami made everything so easy and seem to think of everything we might need. They even had a beach bag hanging in our room to use! We had high expectations before this vacation because of excellent Trip Advisor reviews about La Quinta - but we are letting you know, this place exceeded our expectations. For real. We are still smiling. Thank you to management and staff for a great get-away in Mexico!

This was my 5th time staying at La Quinta Del Sol. And won't be my last. Loved all the new upgrades and the managers are so helpful. This isn't 5 star but it is a real bargain for the area.
We like to cook in our kitchen instead of going out every night.

Room Tip: I love the second floor, room 7, for a couple.
