Casa Buena is a small, well maintained, hotel, just outside Sayulita, which makes it much more quiet than staying in the village itself. Surrounded by lots of green and locals, the hotel experiences what Terry calls the Mexican serenade; In our case a rooster and some working people early in the morning. But that is Mexico and you'll enjoy it!... More

Terry O, Owner at Casa Buena Onda - Sayulita Surf Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your great review! Just to clarify, we are located in Sayulita, walking distance to everything, but not right downtown in el centro (where it is super noisy). We have an on-demand hotwater system for the shower and yes we know sometimes it is a bit tricky to get the right temperature. Usually it works great but we... More

My friend and I were lucky enough to stay with Terry and Sheryl over the recent holiday period. We rented the palapa, which was decorated simply and thoughtfully and had a great vibe. The rooftop patio was icing on the cake: awesome to hang out and read in the hammock or watch the stars at night. Terry and Sheryl are... More

Sometimes you can determine the quality of a place but the way the owners interact with you. After booking a last minute (and much needed) vacation to PV & Sayulita, I contacted Terry (the owner) with questions about availability for one of the private rooms. The calendar on their website showed room availability but he was still very patient in... More

Terry and his wife were totally helpful and even took me to the bus station to get a bus to the airport. The room was large and airy and there is a whole outside area for eating with a fridge, plates/utensils, etc. The main are of Sayulita is only a 4-5 minute walk away. The only downside is that because... More

Im just returning from Sayulita where I stayed a week to take both Spanish (Experienca Sayulita) and surf (Wildmex) lessons. Staying at Terry's Buena Onda made the week even more complete. The place is very welcoming, simple and clean. There is definitively a good vibe about it. I liked experiencing 'living' in Mexico. Rooster wake up, children in The street... More

Just what my wife and I were looking for in Sayulita - casual, clean, comfortable and quiet with bonus character. Spent only two short nights in Seahore Palapa, and look forward to future longer stay. Sheryl and Terry were terrific and very helpful hosts from the welcoming cold beer. Good location with quick access to town and Los Muertos Beach.

I stayed for 10 nights in the Seahorse Palapa. The room is clean and comfortable, with lovely breezes keeping you cool at night. Hosts Terry and Sheryl were always available to see if I needed anything, or to give excellent advice on directions or recommend good places to eat. Just a short walk to both the beach and the main... More
