We stayed here for 2 weeks. A Mexican villa turned into a B & B. The rooms are all lovely. breakfast was usually Mexican eggs with lots of fruit, yogurt and pastries. Best coffee ever from la Penita coffee roasters. The owner Karen joined us most days. We felt very safe and the on site manager Victor was wonderful. The... More

The rooms were very clean. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is very nice. The pool is outstanding. Easy access to the beach. Very tranquil setting. Our room had an outstanding view of the beach. The staff was very nice. The food at breakfast was great. If you're looking for a fancy resort, this isn't the place. If... More

I was looking for something more and different than a beach holiday in an all inclusive resort (husband likes the concept of AI) so I really surprised him with booking us a week at a bed&breakfast Villa Corona del Mar on the quiet residential zone of Rincon de Guayabitos. The pictures on the website and Tripadvisor looked nice, the reality... More

We thank you for your kind comments...the Villa is a great jumping-off spot for the intrepid traveler wishes to explore the coastal and inland areas of Nayarit..everything is fairly accessible and a short driving distance. We have tried to make Villa Corona del Mar..feel and look different than a cookie-cutter hotel or all-inclusive..while we now you have many options to... More

My husband and I were at the Villa with our son for 10 days in January. We were greeted by Victor, the friendly helpful manager. He is great, and the rest of the staff is one of the best assets of this place. I think they do the best they can, possibly given the budget they run under...? The location... More

This is our second trip to Rincon De Guayabitos and the Villa Corona Del Mar. Just like the previous visit the place is warm and feels like home. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the location is ideal. I highly recommend the town and the Villa Corona Del Mar.

Thank you for your review..we like to think of Rincon de Guayabitos as "life in the Slow Lane"...and our aim is to maintain that same peace and tranquility at the Villa everytime you visit here.While there are many options in Guayabitos to choose from we like to think of the Villa as a little oasis from the hustle and bustle...

My wife and I spent 10 days at the Villa. I already miss being on the balcony watching the waves, the sunrise and sunsets without a thought on my mind. The villa is nicely decorated and clean.

I just got back from 12 days of staying at Villa Corona del Mar. I am so rested, so refreshed! The Villa itself is a feast for the eyes.

My husband and I have just returned from a week in Guayabitos and recommend Villa Corona del Mar highly. The Villa itself is lovely and comfortable, and the ocean-view rooms (we stayed in El Toro) offer "million-dollar" views of the Jaltemba Bay for considerably fewer pesos! This is the kind of place where one enjoys getting to know owners and... More
