We stayed at La Quinta for four nights right after New Years. We absolutely LOVED it! I originally found out about the hotel on Trip Advisor and chose to book it because of the great reviews and am so happy I did.
We wanted to be close to some surf beaches on this trip, so spent a few days in Sayulita before heading to Punta de Mita. Mita is VERY quiet and laid back compared to Sayulita so it was a nice relaxing break before heading back to Canada. La Quinta is in a great location - short walk to restaurants, convenience stores, etc. and right across the street from the beach. Walk about 5-10 minutes down the beach though, past all the condos - it's quieter down there and the sand is nicer and less rocky.
We had a great room on the upper level (although there is no such thing as a "bad" room here!). The bed was very comfortable, kitchen well-stocked, and the housekeeper, Docinda, keeps everything absolutely spotless. We loved having the kitchen as well as the BBQ on the rooftop patio - we made most of our own meals at the hotel. The patio is an awesome sunset-watching spot, and would also be great for throwing a party, as it has everything you need - BBQ, fridge, water, dishes, cutlery, etc.
We went surfing almost every day and Tanya and Anibal (the managers) were very accommodating. They drove us to a fantastic surf beach and rented surfboards to us for very little cost (at least compared to what we paid in Sayulita and were quoted by surf shops in Punta de Mita) and they even provide beach towels, umbrellas, etc. for free. They were also very helpful in providing transportation to/from the airport and between Sayulita and Mita (and they are much more affordable than taxis or any other shuttle services). There were a couple of minor mixups, involving our airport pickup and hotel room key, but they very quickly took care of it and made sure we were well taken care of. They are also so much fun to hang out with!
If we ever make it back to this area, I won't even consider staying anywhere else!
