I've been traveling/living in Mexico for years, and Casa Terramar is one of my absolute favorites. It's on a hillside with beautiful views of the ocean and Monkey Mountain and enjoys the cooler breezes that you just don't get staying lower down. But it's still only a quiet 5 minute walk to the beach and the center of town. Ask to borrow the boogie board and beach chairs. Casa Terramar is sort of like Sayulita itself--a great mix of Mexican/U.S./Canadian/European, young/not so young, locals/families/surfers/outdoorsy types. The American on site owner keeps Terramar up to high standards--rooms are comfortable, very clean, bright and airy. The deep/large pool (with a grill for cooking the fish you might catch) is a great place for low key, informal margarita socials and getting to meet the few other guests who may be staying. Highly recommended.
One of Sayulita's best pools.
I stayed at Hotel Diamante for four nights in May, 2008. The hotel is an excellent budget option, as well as a good place for people traveling with kids, as it has a pool in the courtyard. I paid 375 pesos for single occupancy of a room with a double bed. My room was located on the ground floor, right beside the pool, and was very clean. Spacious it was not, but I didn't exactly spend a lot of time in the room! The fan on the ceiling provided all the cool air I needed (though it was a bit noisy) and there is a communal kitchen on the patio if you want to prepare some of your own food. I would say that the only downside to the hotel is the fact that the owners- while being INCREDIBLY nice and friendly- use the courtyard as a bit of a living room and have music, TVs and children running around in the area. It's very noisy in the courtyard from about 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm, and again from about 7:00 am to 10:00 am, which isn't great if you're trying to sleep.
Los Delfines, Las Gemelas and Las Hamacas are a group of 3 complexes just North of the main part of town in Sayulita all run by the same folks.
Las Hamacas is the newest complex, composed of 4 large 2 story casas, making up 6 units total. They were built in 2005 - I haven't had a chance to stay in any of them yet.
The accommodations at Los Delphines and Las Gemelas are similar to each other, with the majority of casas being single story 2-3 bedroom units. The accommodations are wonderful and I highly recommend them.
The complex is a bit of a walk (about 10min.) to town and the surf break - they offer wonderful views of the sunset (better than the main beach) and a quiet atmosphere.
Janey & Enrique are the onsight owner's/managers if you need anything.
Each complex is gated and has a private parking area. Los Delfines has 2 shared pools. Las Gemeles has a single shared pool.
Longboard Heaven has everything you need. Surfboards, full kitchens, lovely patio areas, etc.. Our room had a boom box and several CDs, along with a grand selection of books. The beds were okay. Nothing fancy, but then again, I hope nobody goes to Sayulita to stay in their rooms!
Surfboards provided! Gorgeous landscape and great views of the ocean. Living room and Kitchen are OUTDOORS! Yes, that is awesome! Check out the pics! Most showers in Sayulita are stall style. Kind of like a horse washing stall. There is a 1/2 wall and the rest is open area. I love it! Lots of room and windows so you can hear all the birds.
This location is up on a hill. Its a little hike to the ocean. During the peak season, when beachfront locations are full, this would definetly be my second choice!
