Perfect accommodations
Reviewed 4 months ago

There is no doubt that staying at Punta Esmeralda beats all other types of accommodations in the area. The residential complex is very well maintained, the 'Masala en El Mar' restaurant (a.k.a. Beach Club) offers excellent food, right by the beach. We have rented different condos over the years and are always pleased with the views and the quality of the offerings. With so many pools and a Spa and Bocce, tennis courts and the beautiful beach, what is there no to like?
We will return as we always do...

Beautiful complex
Reviewed 4 months ago

We rented one of the units right on the water. The views were fantastic, the complex very clean and overall it was quiet. The beach is great and walking distance to Bucerias. Two warm hearted pools and six that were more cool. The on site restaurant was outstanding. A bit out of the way, either a cab or a bus to go anywhere.

Perfect views and quiet

We stayed two weeks in Coral 7 - one of the condos highest above the beach with parking right behind. Great place for families with all the amenities and great for kids.
My wife really enjoys the infinity pool on the balcony and a good glass of wine.
Owners are great to work with and we will be back.

Resourt like living in a private development
Reviewed 1 year ago

We visited in February and enjoyed all the amenities of this development. 2 cold water pools and one heated pool near the restaurant of the infinity type just off the beach. Some units have it's own pool, and hottub. There is no public hottub however. Cleaning of our unit was arranged weekly. The restaurant on the premise is excellent but not cheap compared to the many local restaurants down the beach.
Dogs are welcome but need to be on the leach. The beach is public and just steps away. Drinking the water is not recommended. The community is gated and security is adequate.
One criticism we have though is the continuous loud noise from the nearby highway, all night long. Motor cycles, truck engine retarder brakes, police and ambulance sirens. The grounds are well kept and very quiet though.

Home Away from Home

Truly, I can’t say enough about how well organized, tended and presented this property is.
This is not a resort. It is a community development, privately owned by the home owners who live there. Some choose to rent out their spaces, but not all, so everyone maintains a certain level of respect to those who are not just on vacation.
The grounds are very well maintained, and beautifully landscaped.
Eight pools to choose from or the beach with umbrellas and chairs. Yes, the bay-bed is a bit rocky right in front, but the shore line is a 45 minute walk into the centre of Bucerías , and there are many nice, sandy spots along the way.
Very secure! Security at the main gate and the beach access as well.
Terraced on the hillside, everyone has a full ocean front view of the Bay of Banderas all the way from south of PV and around. Beautiful night and day.
From most vistas, you will get the sun rise over the mountains. Not everyone gets the sunset, some units with corner locations or rear terraces.
There are elevators for access to forth floor units and also to descend the lower tier to the beach front pools and beach front restaurant.
The restaurant provides delivery to your condo or a beautiful beach side setting for breakfast/lunch/or dinner. All very nicely prepared and presented.
There is no night life - this is not a place to go to hit the clubs or bars. Both Bucerías and La Cruz are about a 70 peso cab fare. The bus stops close to the main gate.
Often, we would walk to Bucerias in the afternoon and cab home at night. We never walked to La Cruz, which I read was harder to navigate and tide dependent.
Mid January - the pools were never crowded. Often we were the only guests at the pool, sometimes a few more.
Enjoyed our stay here.
