Casa Mermejita
Reviewed 13 February 2016

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!

Room Tip: We stayed in Casa Ovalada adapated since other rooms were occupied. It worked well, yet for 4 it is...

We stayed in the rectangular building with a wonderful shower. We had great views onto the ocean and heard the waves crash against the beach at night. The hosts were wonderful (don't know about their ability to speak English, though) ... very accomodating to any wish we had.

This hotel has a really issue problem with service first of all the can't sell u ice because they don't have ice. How the hell a hotel on the ocean with 40
Degrees Celsius doesn't have ice
Second place one of our rooms the mosquito net has a huge hole where all the Mosquitos get inside let u never sleep
Third is unbelievable a hotel far from the downtown Mazunte on a raining night can't extend dinner time to serve food the people
Who is there and doesn't have a car to go to town on a poring raining night and when we ask for food they said we r not allow to serve food at this time when the manager is doing nothing just sleeping on a hamack
On top of that the price is the most expensive hotel in the whole area and to be honest doesn't worth it
TO BE HONEST THE WORST HOTEL ON THE AREA any further questions contact me specially if the owner read this review that I hope vincourt77@hotmail.com

Greeting understand your discomfort very well and we are very vigilant in correcting them. I tell him that we have the necessary services and that at that time of night we found ice for beers that were taking, and that were not purchased at the hotel. We will write to your e-mail he sent us to see how to amend the failure to consider effectively committed.

Casa Mermejita, a four-cabin hotel, stands out among many of its nearby competitors. This lodging is an aesthete’s sigh of relief. Architectural beauty and privacy distinguish it. It is run by its co-owner and architect, Jorge Ramírez.

Tucked away on a hillside, it requires guests to be in athletic shape to climb the long stone steps made steeper by the forest’s humidity but soothed by the birds and butterflies that announce their exuberance. The stairway evokes an indigenous pyramid. Each cabin has a unique shape. They are minimalist hybrids. Indigenous materials combine with contemporary structural concepts permitting space, air and light to predominate. The large bed is soft and draped by an unencumbering mosquito net. A triangle pool, filled with silken water, sits on a cliff nestled by a tree grove with a clear view of the ocean.

The management is friendly and conscientious. On occasion, gourmet dinners are served. Three times a year, turtles migrate by the thousands from the sea at sundown to lay their eggs at the same shore of their birthplace not far from Mermejita. They then immediately return to sea.

This lodging is a delightful haven for quiet, ecology-respectful people wishing to escape the onslaught of the urban grind. If they can climb this hillside, they’re then ushered into a corner of paradisiacal ocean and jungle.

As a local coined it, this is “the end of the world.” Expats are among those who are gradually gentrifying the village of Mazunte, one of many indigenous villages in the region. It is located one hour’s drive north of Huatulco, deep in Zapotec territory and natural reserves.
