We stayed in one of the penthouse villas that had amazing views and a private plunge pool. When we wanted privacy and serenity we stayed here but when we wanted to be more social we went down to the pool above the beach club or down to the beach club itself. It was the best of both worlds. The beach club had great lunch and they had some seriously strong drinks. Dinner was not that great and I wouldn't recommend it. The concierge was very helpful in arranging rentals on property for surfing and also booking external activities and taxis. Note when you take a taxi negotiate the price up front otherwise they will gouge you.
There are zero stores in the area so you need to stock up at Walmart or Mega on your way in. Make sure to get plenty of bottled water.
The property is meticulously maintained and the staff are all extremely helpful. The ocean outside the property is rather rocky and sometimes the water is full of kelp and seaweed and therefore turns brown. It's fine to swim in but just be aware it's not clear blue water.
It's about a 30 minute drive back to Puerta Vallarta which is busy and touristy. The better option for dinners is driving 15 minutes in the other direction to Punta Mita which is a small little town with quite a few good restaurant options. You can also do surf lessons, snorkeling, diving etc. out of there.
