We were there in early January 2015, a family of 4 (me, husband and 2 kids 15, 11). It was a great experience. This small quite hotel offers just few independent rooms/cottages with nice minimalistic ecologic architecture adapted to the natural environment of Mazunte. It is hiddenly located up in a small hill (3' upstairs to reach it from the main street - so no apt for people with limited mobility) surrounded by nature (do not be surprised if you see spiders, iguanas and more...). The eco friendly concept means there is no warm water, but who needs it with Mazunte's temperature even in winter! The rooms are lovely, simply decorated, well-kept, spacious and clean. We stayed at Casa Ovalada which has a terrace with "hamacas" and a splendid view to the beach and the sea. There is a nice small swimming pool and a common place for gathering where the restaurant is located. The manager is architect and he designed the hotel himself. He is extremely friendly, as well as the whole staff, local nice people. An added value of the place is the restaurant, serving delicious breakfast (omelletes, fresh fruit, chilaquiles, good coffee) and dinner including specialities from the region (Oaxaca and more) and catch of the day with fresh fish; the cook masters outstandingly this art because food is well-prepared and simply delicious!! (I think her name was Mayeli? a local young woman). Just one thing to note: if you are in a hurry this is not the place for you because they really take their time when serving food. But for me/us this "slow food" was part of the whole holidays concept in this peaceful place so I greatly enjoyed waiting in that fantastic terrace reading my book. There is an amazing view from there!. It is really quiet and peaceful! The beach from the hotel, once down, is 5 minutes walking: Mermejita beach, beautiful long sand beach, where I used to run in the mornnings: once I saw dolphins passing by!. The hotel is around 10' walking distance from the village, where you can find small stores and restaurants and buy local organic "jamaica" / hibiscus and fresh fruits like papayas.
All in all our stay was greatly enjoyable for me and my whole family. The kids loved it! I would definetely go back and recommend other people to stay at Casa Mermejita, either as a couple, with friends or with children.
Thank you so much Casa Mermejita for the warm and splendid hospitality!
