Located in a quiet part of town, just a few minutes walk from restaurants and shops, this hotel should be your top choice for a mid-range stay. The rooms are well appointed and each unit has a kitchen with cookware and utensils. There is an amazing rooftop and a private beach area for relaxing. The hotel can rent out surfbaords and paddleboards, and even arrange for a lesson. The best part of the hotel are the managers Nico and Mary, who provide you with all of their insider tips on day trips and the best places to eat. I can't recommend this hotel enough!

We checked in late February for a prepaid 5 night stay but left after one night. Cannot understand the 5 star ratings on TripAdviser. Room was very tired with only a curtain between bathroom and the rest of the place. Request to put all dirty toilet paper in a trash bin next to the toilet! What? The ‘beach club’ is a small roped off area with a few plastic lounge chairs that also looked very tired. Nearby was a large portable speaker on the beach blasting toward the hotel. I’ve traveled extensively in 3rd world countries so have a pretty good sense of situational awareness and walking home at night from a nearby row of restaurants felt unsafe and sketchy (and freaked out my wife). We were warned on checking in to keep our back curtains drawn at night on the barred windows so as not to draw attention to ourselves. Also warned about carefully locking the gate. The managers of the hotel seemed nice but I definitely wouldn’t recommend.

Response from Teri L, Manager at Hotel La Quinta del Sol

Dear R&V, The experience you describe is so much different than that reported by the vast majority of our guests that I'm not sure where to begin. We certainly respect your opinion and deeply regret that your visit with us was so disappointing. And while we completely appreciate your extensive travel experience and informed point of reference, we must come to the defense of the over 300 guests who have reported a far different experience and have paved the way to our years of award winning reputation. We believe it is inappropriate to discount or invalidate their reviews on the presumption that their opinions are somehow less worthy. I have personally known hundreds of guests - many of whom have dazzled me with their travel history - making mine paltry by comparison. Many of these seasoned travelers have shared their ideas with us, enabling us to continuously improve everything we offer. I appreciate the opportunity to address some of your specific comments so as to paint as accurate a picture as possible, and help potential guests make informed decisions.: 1. Saying, "Cannot understand the 5 star ratings” threatens the very integrity of the pages you are reading. Why choose only to pay attention to the bad and not the good? Why pay attention to this one and not the other one? My suggestion is to believe everything - to a point - and consider the total picture (this applies to our establishment and all establishments). One persons opinion could reflect yours - or not.....we all have different needs, expectations, budgets, likes and dislikes. 2. Bathroom curtain. This is something that is very common in hotels in the area. Some people do not like it while others have no problem with it. A drape adds softness, which is especially nice in a bathroom where there are lots of cold, hard surfaces. Either way, it is clearly shown in the photographs on Tripadvisor and on our website. 3. Trash can for toilet paper. Most plumbing in this rural Mexican town was built is such a way that toilets generally do not create enough velocity to avoid clogs in the sewage lines. Thus, the best way to avoid clogs (and the inconveniences to our guests) is to toss the toilet paper in the bin. Part of our daily housekeeping is emptying this trash bin. 4. Beach Club. Our lounge chairs, hammocks and umbrellas do take a beating from heavy use, the sunny days and the salty air. This is why we update them every season. Since all beaches in Mexico are public lands, we have no control as to what music people might be playing in front of the beach club. Thankfully this is rarely an issue for our guests, although the beach can get lively on Sundays with Mexican families, as you experienced. Most of our guests enjoy the opportunity of seeing the locals at play rather than missing out by hiding behind the gates of an all-inclusive resort. 5. Safety. Looking through your reviews for other properties around the world, I get the sense that your idea of extensive travel in “3rd world countries” is going from one all-inclusive 5-star resort to the next. Clearly, we are not that type of establishment nor do we pretend to be. Punta de Mita is a real fishing village with beautiful beaches and great surf. It is a great place to relax and safe to walk at all hours. Real Mexicans live in this town, and although there have been zero incidences of violent crime since we have been living here, it is livelier than what you might have experienced inside the quiet confines a gated community. La Quinta del Sol is a small seaside hotel within walking distance of phenomenal Mexican restaurants. Our hotel has an intimate feel with just 7 rooms. All of our rooms come with a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, air conditioning, and an ocean view from the spacious terraces. We also have a rooftop terrace with and a beach club directly in front of the hotel with lounge chairs, umbrellas and hammocks. We distinguish ourselves by offering great service and of course on-site managers who as you noticed “seemed nice”. We have great pride here at La Quinta del Sol. We try to be very adept at learning from our shortcomings. We encourage guests to help us improve. It is part of why we have earned the reputation we have. We hope that you had the opportunity to enjoy your valuable time elsewhere after bailing out of this town. Saludos, Nico & Mary

This is the first review I've ever written; felt it was necessary in order to share just how wonderful both this hotel AND the hosts are!!! La Quinta del Sol came highly recommended to us by some friends from home, and our expectations were exceeded. Nico and Mary were wonderful -- so gracious, helpful and welcoming -- they organized a snorkeling/whale watching trip for one of our mornings (it was a spectacular trip!); hosted a relaxing, fun potluck dinner for the hotel guests with freshly caught fish; and helped with finding the bus to take us back to the airport at the end of our trip. Even recommended a fantastic restaurant just outside of the PV airport! The hotel is perfect! Our room was quiet, spotless and spacious, with a full kitchen (complete with fresh water -- a huge plus!), a super comfortable bed and an awesome air conditioner. The hotel's peaceful private beach is just across the street, with hammocks, chairs and shade. Views from the rooftop terrace,as well as from the open areas in front of all of the rooms, are spectacular. As an animal lover, having Nico and Mary's cats to pet was a nice bonus. :) Honestly, I felt like I could spend the rest of my life there -- that's how much we loved it!!! We were very sad to leave, and are already planning our next trip to La Quinta del Sol. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Dear Lee Anne and Mark, Wow! We are blushing! Thank you for coming to stay with us and for writing this super excellent review. If you can't come back for the rest of your life, maybe just for a longer stay next winter? I am sure Chico and Cleo would love that. Thanks for making our day! Saludos! Nico & Mary

This hotel is amazing!!! The owners, Nico & Mary, are perfect hosts. They have everything you need available, and are there to help anytime, but make sure to give you all the space you want as well. They have great comfortable rooms with a full kitchen. The roof top area has an amazing view with hammocks and chairs and a bar area if you want to hangout up there as well! They offer lounge chairs and hammocks right at the beach too. The hotel is also very close to local shops and great restaurants! Perfect place to stay for an amazing price!

Just got back from a week at La Quinta del Sol with Nikki and Mary. They are superb hosts— attentive, friendly, open and accessible to guests. The hotel is steps away from the beach and close to stores, restaurants and the harbor—in case you want to rent a boat for a few hours. They are helpful in ensuring your travel to and from the airport is set up and they are just really sweet people. I would definitely stay there again.
