Resort Review: Iberostar Playa Mita

My oh my. To start off, the only con about this resort is that it’s about an hour’s drive from the airport – but that’s the least of my worries when choosing a resort. This was by far the standout and my favorite of all the resorts we saw during our Funjet Fam trip to Puerto Vallarta in late February. It’s just over a year old and  absolutely wonderful. The grounds are clean, bright, and spacious. The food and drinks are actually good, too!

One of my favorite features is the gourmet restaurant called Pacific Express, which is decorated like the inside of an old-time train car. Super neat!

The lunch buffet had a wonderful variety of food and probably the best choices I’ve seen at a resort buffet. Unbelievably, the desserts were good, too, which isn’t very common.

It’s very close to my new favorite little hideaway Sayulita – just have the concierge call a cab. So easy!

I don’t have enough good to say about this resort. It’s just spectacular so I’ll let the pictures do the talking 🙂

Don’t you just want to sit around here with a magazine all day?

I love the clean, bright decor and bedspreads.

Just what I like to see – beach bar service.

Cooking by the pool – just walk a few feet to get the daily special. It’s was like a spaghetti paella.
