We spent three nights at Bungalows Unelma in early June. Everything about the place exceeded our expectations. First, the location is perfect. The back gate to the property opens directly onto a wide sandy beach perfect for swimming.The bungalows are an easy walk to everything. At first we weren't sure about Bucerias as a destination, but it really grew on... More

This was an absolute delight - we loved it. Walk thru beautiful gardens to get to the cutest bungalow. Great room with outdoor kitchen. Access to a private area on the beach. We were greeted with warm welcome by Maria on both arrival and departure, right on time. Walking distance to tons of restaurants and shops. Would definitely stay there... More

My wife Lisa and I stayed here in March. As soon as we walked onto the grounds we knew we picked the perfect place to stay. Beautiful grounds, private section of beach and extremely well maintained accommodations. Maria and Oscar do a great job in looking after the property every single day. Nazario, the owner, obviously takes great pride in... More

Recently stayed at the Unelma Bungalows. What a wonderful experience! Our bungalow was perfect. The site was beautiful. The location was very good (right on the beach). Wonderful restaurants near by and very close to the markets. The owners were very gracious. Would definiatly recommend these bungalows to future travelers.

To climb the spiral staircase to the upper bungalow under the huge palapa roof is to fulfill a dream of living in a tropical island paradise. The curved balcony is open-sided with inviting table and chairs as well as a comfortable seating area and along the inner wall, a very well appointed kitchen area glowing with Mexican yellow tiles. The... More

Unelma is an unusual property: architecturally unique, meticulously maintained, ultimately comfortable. The 3 bungalows sit nestled in a tropical garden, just steps away from the beach. Encore Jazz and its fine food is the bonus, especially if you enjoy a glass of wine on the deck at sunset listening to professional musicians. We loved our 8 nights in Bucerias, and... More

Small hotel with 3 nice rooms. We rented all 3 rooms and it was really nice. We felt like if we were in our own house with garden ! We sit at the terraces late night , everything was for us. Sport equipment to use for free, barbecue outside... Really nice to relax . Leaving the garden you are right... More

This is a great location, convenient to the airport but on the edge of the overdeveloped Puerto Vallarta-Nuevo Vallarta area. This would be a great base if you want to explore Puerto Vallarta but still get out of the city bustle and explore the quieter Riviera Nayarit. For us it was our final two nights after staying further north in... More

I have returned many times to these bungalows. The grounds are lush gardens and lawn down to the beach. No shortage of hammocks, lounge chairs and ocean toys like kayaks and paddle boards. If you are lucky, Timoteo will cut open a coconut for you to enjoy while you relax on the beach. You can walk from here to whatever... More
