Beautiful hotel, with unique rooms, wonderful service, wonderful food--I can't say enough good things about it! We will definitely be returning. The 'nature' feel of the place is so relaxing and makes for a unique experience. Nice variety of menu options for each meal, and everything is reasonably priced.

The staff is really welcoming, they sincerely want to get to know you, make sure you have a good stay and you relax. I only heard excellent comments around the pool and on the beach. Nice trek on the beach too and yoga class every morning very appreciated. Lots of people revisiting too. Very quiet, in the middle of the...

We stayed during the Christmas holiday break. The resort was beautiful, serene and tucked away on a private beach but you can walk to downtown Sayulita. The staff and front desk are helpful. Service is outstanding and friendly, including Jaunita, the beautiful parrot that hangs out at the bar. The resort offers an extensive food and drink menu. Breakfast is...

Thanks for your review. Many guests love the sound of the surf but when there are big swells from winter storms in the North Pacific the surf can cease to be a lullaby for light sleepers :-). Next time try an Ocean View room. (I put a comment in your record to give you a free relaxing massage on your...

Lovely boutique hotel with unique rooms. The service is wonderful and friendly. The jungle rooms might have visitors at night due to their open air nature. The golf carts into town are a must. The food, drinks and beach make this place. They have many parrots which are located all over the property.

Thanks for your review. It looks like a local coatimundis took a star away from it with his visit! When their food supply gets scarce they sometimes visit a jungle room at night if they smell fruit, chocolates or other delicacies. We love these cute creatures and usually put food out for them when there is little to forage on...

We spent one unforgettable night in the hotel with my boyfriend in Cenzontle-apartment, which was located in the treetops. The whole hotel concept is amazing because of its unique location in the jungle. The surroundings are beautiful with a private beach, an infinity pool, an outdoor jacuzzi, nature paths with parrots and a nice restaurant and a bar. We were...

What a lovely review, thank you! I know Finland is a beautiful country, too, but we hope you come back and try the Love Nest when it is too dark and cold during your long winter.

This is a perfect hotel for anyone who needs a few days to get away. Located just a few minutes from downtown Sayulita by golf cart, this resort is located on a private beach built into the Nayarit Jungle. Amazing and friendly staff, beautiful location and rooms, and just a great place to relax. Will come back for another stay...

I was fortunate to be here during the best weather time (December) and on a Thursday night when only about 10 other people were there. We stayed for one night just to check it out, and it was worth it. It's very secluded and quiet, built right into the jungle hills off the beach. There's really no way to get...

Thanks for the great review. One night is just not enough so you'll have to come back soon. The ocean is not always swimmable, especially when one of your big northern storms sends sets of surf swells, but then you can always try a board!

Wonderful spot to spend Christmas with husband and two young adult sons. We felt very pampered and enjoyed all the amenities and services offered. The menu was big enough and the food excellent so we only ate 2 meals off-site. Very relaxing incredibly beautiful spot. Other guests were friendly but respected others privacy. We never even locked our doors while...

Great stay with my girlfriend. The beach is incredible and private, the place is super interesting and the staff is relaxed and awesome. The golf carts into town are also great.
