Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashley55 Punta Bonita
We spent 2 nights here after a wedding in Puerta Vallarta. This St. Regis is in such a welcoming, beautiful setting. We had wonderful service and amazing food and drinks at the boat club each day. The grilled lobster and fresh seafood was amazing. We went into town each night for dinner via the St.Regis cars and it couldn't have been easier. We wanted to stay here because of the wonderful reviews and to return for a longer vacation where we would take more advantage of some of the water sports directly from the St. Regis beach. We would highly recommend this hotel. Thank you everyone at the St. Regis for making our short stay so amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HockeyTime Amazing Stay at The St. Regis Punta Mita!
My wife and I just got back from staying 5 nights at the St. Regis in Punta Mita. This hotel was recommended by my brother who had stayed there twice. This was hands down the most relaxing vacation my wife have ever been on! Highly recommend this resort if you are looking to get pampered, and relax! I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The staff is amazing, the restaurants are great, the pools are really nice, beach is fantastic, and rooms are perfect. Things I really like about the resort -
1. St. Regis Car Service from Puerto Vallarta airport. Highly recommend this. Stopped at the store and picked up some beer and wine for our visit. Driver helped us shop!
2. Restaurants. Recommend one night at Carolina restaurant at resort. A little more expensive, but food/experience was outstanding. Loved the grouper fish tacos for lunch everyday at the pool! We ate at Sea Breeze restaurant twice for dinner, and each time it was very good.
3, Really enjoyed the tequila and guacamole classes at the Sea breeze bar. Tons of fun!
4. Only excursion we did was the snorkeling trip to Murietas islands. Highly recommend this! Only takes 15 mins to get there by boat from the beach at the resort. Got lucky and saw some whales, and the snorkeling was awesome! Arranged this thru the hotel.
5, Other restaurants nearby I recommend are Sufi (walking distance from resort) and Si Señor (downtown Punta Mita - 100 pesos cab ride each way).
6. Constant attention by staff while at the pool/beach. Always kept the ice bucket full (water was complementary), and even brought by popsicles every now and then.
7. Drinks -Try the Mita Mary (tequila version of bloody mary), miami vice drink, and other bar specialities. Bar staff by Sea Breeze was great!
8. The layout of the resort was amazing! You never had to go very far for anything, but you still felt like you were the only people there! That is hard to come by at any resort!
9. Margarita's waiting upon arrival were great!
My wife did not use the spa on this visit, but my brother and his wife raved about it. Will have to try on our next visit!
We missed the Champagne reception that took place every Friday night. Heard great things about this from everyone at the resort.
We did not use the Kids Club facility. We also did not use the fitness facility.
Love, Love, Love this resort!!!!

We so enjoyed our stay at St. Regis Punta Mita- it exceeded all of our expectations- although we knew it would be a terrific stay- we were blown away by the gorgeous surroundings, amazing and friendly staff and wonderful amenities. We did NOT want to leave!! Everything from beginning to end was so well done and we honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience.
There aren't enough stars to rate! We can't wait to come back

We enjoyed every aspect of this beautiful resort. From the infinity pools, to the attentive service, our experience was pure bliss. Never before have we felt this relaxed on a vacation, which was especially appreciated since this was our honeymoon trip. The St. Regis certainly understands true luxury, and it was a pleasure to be surrounded by so much of it. I was really impressed with how many infinity pools they had, also impressive was our room's outdoor shower. We had several champagne events that week, including our arrival at the resort - quite a nice way to be welcomed to paradise. It was an amazing week and I can't wait to return some day. I couldn't be happier that we chose the St. Regis over the other resorts in the area.

I have never been so impressed by the management and staff at any hotel compared to St Regis Punta Mita. The resort is simply spectacular in beauty, and the warmth and genuine desire of the staff to make your vacation special is second to none. We travel quite a bit, and there is no property that we look forward to returning to more than this one. The property is very spacious and this allows guests the unique ability to enjoy quiet privacy , romance, and or family fun. We loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by had07 Air Conditioning
Everything was wonderful but if there was one issue I could find that was not perfect, was the air conditioning in the room. As the week we were there, it was extremely hot outside, the room did not cool off very well, so made it a little difficult to sleep at night. Otherwise that St. Regis was fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cjrd For when you crave quiet and privacy
This resort, with only 120 units, is the place for a quiet escape with the ultimate in privacy. Great for surfers, divers and golfers. Good airport access. Local area restaurants very good. Nice spa with a good variety of services. Friendly staff. Luxurious suite. No complaints except that we had to come home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bjabc Awesome experience
My wife and I spent 5 nights in Puerto Vallarta at the end of November 2011. We spent three days in the city center, and two nights in Punta de Mita. We were very satisfied at the resort facility that St Regis offered, and a truly outstanding service at hotel room, swimming pool and restaurants. The upgraded luxury suite is very comfortable and home like. Will definitely come back in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TJ760949 Exceptional Property, Staff and Service
Our stay at the St Regis was exceptional and the level of service we received was outstanding (even when compared to the already high levels of service we've received at other St Regis properties. The design of the hotel (bungalows) and grounds are ideal for a relaxing getaway. This location is highly recommended! My only suggestion - the facility suffered some minor water damage from the recent rainy season. Attention to this maintenance would give this property a perfect score across the board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kdf518 Wonderful Honeymoon Spot!
What can I say... this hotel completely exceeded our expectations. We stayed here for one week on our honeymoon this May. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive. The facility was clean and they went the extra mile to make us feel special. The resort is arranged so that you feel you have the whole place to yourself. The only downside was a wedding our last night. It kept us up all night and the staff seemed a tad overwhelmed having to accommodate all of the guests for this large event. Aside from this isolated event, everything was perfect. The food was spectacular (especially the Carolina restaurant), the rooms were spacious (we stayed in a ocean view suite), and the butler service was excellent. Having coffee on our patio every morning was definitely a highlight! We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MisterAC Overall a great experience - highly recommended
This was a very, very nice property, extremely relaxing. Even though it was almost full it never seemed crowded. Staff in general was very good (not all though). Food was generally excellent. Outside restaurants I recommend are Sufi and Si Senior.
The property is not very old but could already use some refurbishment in some places.
There is not a whole lot to do here which is great for people who want relaxation and not so great for others who get bored. The property is very isolated...1 hour ride from Puerto Vallarta.
I do definitely recommend the hotel even though it is 95% perfect (it would be 100% perfect if the property was refurbished where it needed to be and lackluster employees were trained or replaced). Maybe this review sounds picky but for this amount of money you expect the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AKNY Spectacular as always...
This hotel is heads and tails better than the average St. Regis. Superior staff and staff amenities (personal butler, pool attendants, etc). regardless of the occupancy level it always feels sublimely private. There is also terrific golf (I am a 5 handicap and the Bahia course is way better that what I expected for a resort course). Only drawback is the extreme cost of activities offered by the hotel ($25 an hour to rent a $10 bike, $900 for inshore fishing). These can be booked in town for 1/3 the cost and they will pick you up at the resort. Food at the beach is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JE79 Great hotel and best SPG property
My family and our best family friends stayed at the St. Regis Punta Mita hotel from 12/20-12/27. The hotel was very nice but what made this hotel amazing was the incredible staff and management. Our every need was taken care of. The beach staff called us "the big family" and were constantly moving umbrellas offering to clean glasses, bringing by frozen ices,, water and, of course, plenty of food and drinks. Carl, the general manager, was great as he somehow found us rooms to extend our stay. On the restaurants, Carolina isn't cheap but with the 15% Starwood discount and as the only 5 star restaurant around it as well worth it. We also enjoyed local restaurants including Blue Shrimp, Sufi and Cafe Teresa. We spent the last night hanging with Sofia Vergara at a beach party and would highly recommended SRPM for a vacation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveSF One of my favorite SPG properties
I have been to several St. Regis properties, this one is definitely on top of my list.
We enjoyed every aspect of this hotel. I'm a SPG platinum and was upgraded to a breathtaking suite.
It was low season (July2011) when we were there, so the property was much quieter (which we lvoe), the entire staff team were courteous and helpful.
It was one of the most enjoyable/relaxing beach vacations we have had!
Must try the Jack Nicholson's Tail of the Whale golf course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Newtron620 This property rates an extra star...5 isn't enough.
In all my 65+ years, I do not recall having had a more relaxing stay at any other property ever. From the welcoming drink to the impeccably maintained grounds, clean and spacious rooms, excellent food and drinks, and the extremely well trained and courteous staff. All of which is a reflection on a highly professional management team who do not overlook any detail to assure your stay is perfect.
I was very impressed and I will be back.

While our stay coincided with the President's visit, the staff worked hard to make sure all guests received special attention. Outstanding service was provided by LIZETH (hostess), LUIS GARCIA (pool/beach) and "HERSHEY" at the Seabreeze Bar.
As we were guests as Peak Season started, the resort seemed a bit understaffed but the staff worked hard to give excellent service.

What a fantastic stay at St. Regis Punta Mita. The hotel, grounds and pools are stunning to say the least. The personal butler was everywhere. It seemed around any corner we would see him/her asking if we needed anything. All of the staff was 5 stars!

My wife and I had not been on a vacation without our kids in 8 years. Our expectations were high given all the wonderful things we'd heard about the resort but our expectations were surpassed. The setting was magical, the food surprisingly fabulous, and the service over the top. We wouldn't hesitate to go back and will likely bring the kids with us the next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gcog2014 Amazing!
My wife and I just got back from 5 nights at the St. Regis Punta Mita and we could not be happier. The staff at this hotel are some of the best in the world. Everyday it feels like there are 2 staff for every guest and the staff go above and beyond everyday.
The resort is perfection. You can surf out in front, hit the spa, relax in the pool or just hang at one of the many bars. The vibe is so tranquil and you will not want to leave.
We don't have kids so we enjoy relaxing in quiet. Since the resort has 3 pools; this was very easy to do. The children's pool was amazing and we will definitely be returning once we do have kids. The resort has an army of nannies and childrens activities. Parents were relaxing on the beach watching their kids play and run around allday.
The restuarants are amazing. The drinks were amazing.
My wife and I will be returning next year or sooner.
Lastly, the resort went above and beyond on security. The resort has 2 checkpoints just to get to the lobby.
In the end, this resort is a must for any SPG lovers.

Absolutely gorgeous resort hotel with great food. Beautiful setting on the Pacific Ocean with a very responsive, friendly staff. Rooms are large and well appointed, with great views. The hotel is a bit remote, with one small village nearby available only by cab.

As soon as we were greeted with beverages, smiles and sun upon our arrival, I knew this would be a vacation we would never forget.

Stayed at the St. Regis in December 2012 and it was by far the best hotel experience my wife and I have ever had. Everything about the property is first class. I've stayed at other high-end hotels in the past (including other St. Regis properties), but this one exceeded them all. We will definitely go back.
