“Beautiful Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here. The room was absolutely gorgeous the staff was helpful and friendly. Very relaxing atmosphere with everything we needed in reach, and great views of the sunrise and sunset. The ocean was great for swimming and surfing. The fine dining restaurant attached to the hotel was absolutely amazing. We will go back!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Cinco in Punta de Mita. It is located on a fabulous, quiet little beach which allowed for lots of relaxation. Towards the afternoon and a long day on the beach we would head up to the roof top pool, enjoy a margarita at the Sunset Bar and Grill and watch the sunset. You must eat there! Emma, the Chef is amazing!

The staff at Hotel Cinco are absolutely fantastic and we really enjoyed meeting them all. A special thanks to Horatio for his help and a huge shout out to Black Bear (Osso Negro) who took me surfing and encouraged me to paddle into so waves, over coming some my fears since I have not surfed much. Black Bear has a true gift and love of the teaching people and especially children to surf or stand up paddle board. While we do not have children, we loved watching him in the water working with all the visitors young and old.

The hotel is also located next to several fantastic restaurants all in walking distance. I felt very safe in the area and walking around. All the locals are super friendly.

Our room was huge and very nicely decorated. I would love the bed to have a little more cushion or pillow top but it was good enough. The gym in the lobby had all the right equipment for a hotel gym but was a little disappointed that the treadmill was not working.

Amazing. We just returned from a week’s stay here (early Nov 2012) and had the most wonderful time. They upgraded our one bedroom to a 3 BR/ 3.5 bath which was HUGE and beautiful. Marble floors, stainless steel, dark wood, comfortable beds and a huge balcony overlooking the ocean. We came with our 6 month old daughter and really appreciated the extra room!

The hotel staff is top notch. We felt they were truly there to make our stay wonderful. Very prompt with any requests, and the front desk staff is marvelous and speaks English well.

The location is perfect. Right on the beach- the water is so warm- you can just jump right in a swim out quite a ways as it’s fairly shallow. We rented stand up paddleboards (SUP) and had a great time. Oso Negro (black bear) does the surf lessons, he’s a wonderful guy and while we didn’t get around to a surf lesson we watched him give many lessons with his dog on the surf board with him!
Punta Mita is a nice little town with a bunch of wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Si Senor, Margaritas, Blue Shrimp, Mariscos Tinos- all the restaurants have tables right on the beach so you can have a drink and put your feet in the sand- heaven! The seafood was delicious and right out of the ocean.
There are a couple convenience stores nearby so we ate breakfast and lunch in our beautiful kitchen. The bottled water is cheap and we did brush our teeth with the tap water- no issues.
I would definitely stay here again and I hope to!

We shared a 3 bed room suite at Hotel Cinco with 2 other couples for a 40th birthday and couldn't have been happier with the choice. Hotel Cinco it self has all the amenities of a big hotel - gym, pools, roof top bar, conciere, excellent restaurant, pool side and beach service from next door, etc etc with an intimate boutique environment. The setting has "behind the gate" amenities and finishes with real Mexico steps away. The food in the surrounding restaurants was ridiculously good. Several very high end culinary delights right on the beach with seating under the stars and real mexico tacos and chicken stands on the street right behind. When the surf is up, the break in front is awesome and when it's smaller there, a short boat ride away several of the various points will pick up swell not matter the swell direction or tide. If you've always wanted to check out the beauty and surf of Punta Mita in comfort and style but don't want to get trapped "behind the gate" of yet another mega hotel development, Hotel Cinco is the answer.

Room Tip: All good rooms. the low numbers are farthest from the elevator. We stayed in 201 and loved it.

Great hotel and staff for an "On the Beach" surf/sup getaway....Roof Top Pool - Bar -Food are great...the rooms GIANT....all the boards you could want right at the door to the beach!

Being right on the Beach in El Anclote give you access to all the local fare, surf shops, fishing etc...and the Hotel can hook you up with anything extra you might need!

Room Tip: all depends on how many in your group...not a bad room in the Place...

It has taken me a while to get around to reviewing this wounderful hotel. First off the people who run the hotel are truly amazing. Anything you need they go above what's expected to make your stay as easy and relaxing.
We decided not to stay at the 4 seasons because we wanted to get a feel for the town of punta mita. We are so glad we made the choice we did. The town was clean and I never felt unsafe the entire trip. We walked to dinner every night and experienced some of the best Mexican food ever. Try the blue shrimp and si señor. The owner is a very generous and overall great guy.
The hotel itself is perfectly located and the rooms are amazing. We stayed in a 2 bed 3 bath room with a fully upgraded kitchen. You can crack the sliding doors and hear the waves crashing all night.
If you have adventure on your mind you have lots of options in punta mita. Snorkeling, surfing are just a few of the options the hotel can arrange. If you do decide to take surf lessons Black Bear is the guy to learn from. Me and my wife both learned in one afternoon. He is word known as a surf instructor and one of the people who made this trip so great. If you don't stay at the hotel he is the only person I would call for lessons.
The only draw back was the hot water over our trip did not get truly hot. That was the only issue of the trip but was not a deal breaker for us.

We will deffintaly be back to this small slice of heaven. Actualy thinking of taking the kids back over spring break.
