Poolside in Punta Mita

The spacious Four Seasons Punta Mita


Published:

Even at full capacity, the spacious Four Seasons Punta Mita is quiet and tranquil. Just a 45-minute private-car ride from the Puerta Vallarta airport, the secluded resort rests on a point jutting into the ocean. At the main pool, quiet pool, and lazy river, general manager John O’Sullivan has introduced the first Four Seasons amphibious waiters. Beginning at noon, they deliver a different amenity to swimmers every half hour—smoothie, frappe, Gatorade, Evian spritzer. They also take drink orders, as O’Sullivan points out that no one wants to wade out 50 feet, only to find his or her cup is empty. Ask for the mango margarita—and keep ’em coming! Rooms start at $780. fourseasons.com
