When nearly 10 of our deal experts in the U.S. all book the same international deal, you know it's something truly special. Such is the case with the Four Seasons Punta Mita
, which hit the top slot in our Top 20 email this week. Want to know what we loved on our trips there?
1. Exceptional service
No detail is overlooked at the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, which has become renowned for its top-notch service. We found that check-in is quick and executed seamlessly with a tasty cocktail presented upon arrival. Whether lounging by the pool or beachside, guests are constantly pampered by the attentive staff, standing by to assist with anything and everything from cleaning sunglasses to passing out towels, chilled bottle water, refreshing Evian spritzes and popsicles.
2. Pristine grounds
The AAA 5-Diamond resort is within the upscale gated community of Punta Mita, which sits beachfront. Punta Mita stays toasty and dry for a most of the year, which makes it extra appealing for travelers looking to escape cold or humid weather. Visitors who are in need of some relaxation can hit one of the three pools, hang at the private beach or float along the lazy river. There are also two Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses plus tennis courts and a fitness center too.
3. Luxe accommodations
Rooms are comfortable and luxurious -- without being over-the-top or ostentatious. At other resorts, “oceanview” rooms sometimes disappoint, and you end up with just get a tiny glimpse of the sea. Not here. We could view the vast ocean from our room’s private balcony. The bathroom was spacious with plenty of room to spread out -- two sinks, a bathtub, shower and L’Occtaine products. Added bonus: complimentary Wi-Fi in-room and throughout the resort.
4. Delicious food
The breakfast buffet (included for two people with the Travelzoo deal
and an $80 value per person) at Ketsi was out of this world. They had everything from a quesadilla bar and omelet station to hot and cold dishes and fresh-squeezed juice -- basically anything you could want. Cocktails during sunset and dinner at Bahia were also phenomenal. Try the catch of the day!
5. Kid friendly
It's not just a romantic retreat, the resort caters to families as well. Kids younger than five eat free, including includes breakfast, poolside snacks, smoothies and bottled milk. They also have pack-and-plays, toys, swimmies and diapers readily available. Babysitters can also be arranged if mom and dad need a night out.
