Imanta Resorts - January 14 - 18, 2016
Imanta Resort is a world-class escape, and ranks top of any resort (even Bora Bora) I’ve had the pleasure to experience. The location, staff, and feel, is magical. You are greeted by name, and there are no receipts to sign, it’s done seamlessly while you are at the resort. A stay at Imanta is a true escape to relaxation and imagination. The sunsets are beautiful, and the canopy of stars greets you each evening like an old friend. The rolling Pacific waves rumble ashore in a rhythmic cadence which lulls you into a deep sense of wonderment.
The hotel is in a Golf property that houses two hotels, the "Iberostar playa mita" (another hotel which looks more "common" i.e. more like the all inclusive type, it looked more crowded and not that special at least from the outside) and "La Tranquila".
The Tranquila areas are beautiful and very well kept, staff is very profesional and courteous, room was very spacious and had excellent distribution including a bath tub inside and a small two person pool on the outside terrace overlooking the hotel areas and sea.
What i really liked was that the hotel was not crowded with people, there was almost no one there when you went out to the pools or sea, no music playing or when they did have some it was only in certain areas and very soft so you would hardly notice it.
The pools are so big you can be on one side and not even know who might be swimming on the other end, the beach area is very clean, well kept and you would have it all to yourself, some people walking by from the other hotels in the area but it is great if you like to have the beach to yourself.
The pool restaurant staff was very attending but at the same time they were not all over you trying to force any food or drinks, food was not A+ but not bad at all, i'm a vegan so i didnt eat much, if you're a meat/fish eater the food may be great as the chefs looked like pro's.
Overall great vacation, i would recommend it for adults, i would assume kids would not have as much fun in a quiet, relaxing environment.
The hotel was fantastic. Great staff, awesome room, and in the middle of everything that we needed. The manager Horratio lined up surf trips, boat trips and took care of restaurant reservations. The roof top breakfast with the best view in Punta Mita is a great way to start the day.

Our butler Omar was fantastic and made the trip, and Daniel (poolside server) was also fantastic. The staff made the hotel better and that says something for a Five Star resort. Great food as well, a perfect mix of local fare with American options for children and travels abroad.
This was a great relaxing vacation for us. We stayed on the resort for the duration of the trip since we felt that there was plenty to do on the complex. The royal suites was definitely the place to be! Much less crowded and much better food since we're allowed into the royal suites only restaurant plus had unlimited reservations for the restaurants at the palladium. The only downside to the whole vacation was the level of noise from the shows at the palladium at night. The noise went on until midnight each night and prevented us from being able to sleep with the windows open at night.
Perched on a peninsula that juts into the Pacific Ocean, Punta Mita offers exquisite beaches and picturesque views of Banderas Bay and the ocean. The highlight of the peninsula is the award-winning Pacifico Golf Course, set amid white-sand beaches and the surrounding Sierra Madres. A variety of prestigious hotels and beach clubs offer visitors tranquility and luxury near the city.
