#1 of 18 Specialty lodging in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle
Jardin del Mar is a unique, beachfront Estate-turned-boutique hotel. From the moment you walk in through the ancient wooden doors, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into an old-world Mexican Hacienda. The fully-enclosed, half-acre property is full of colorful artifacts, artwork and antiques, all carefully hand-selected and brought here from all over Mexico. The name, “Garden of the Sea” is truly befitting, because everywhere you look you’ll find lush vines growing and colorful flowers blooming. Jardin del Mar can accommodate up to 20 people at a time in 7 separate “Casas.” Each Casa sleeps between 2 and 4 people and they’re all completely different in style and layout; the only thing they have in common is an ocean view. So, whether you want to sleep underneath a Palapa roof in a cozy bungalow or you prefer the “finer things,” we have something for everyone.

You enter the courtyard, the large wooden doors open, a traditional, tiled patio frames Banderas Bay. It’s a view you experience with all of your senses. The sounds of tropical birds, the aroma of garden flowers, the sun glistening on the bay. The ambiance wraps around you and immediately you are grateful. It’s enough to hang out all day by the pool or kayak on the bay, but you will want to explore the local cuisine, too. I suggest you go into the local markets and purchase fresh fruit and vegetables for your suite. Every morning we had a tostada with avocado, tomato, onion, and fresh lime – along with fresh orange juice and coffee. Every afternoon we had a fresh Margarita as we stretched out by the pool. Tomas and Eric are perfect hosts. They are excellent at arranging transportation, making restaurant recommendations, or making suggestions for excursions in the area. I came home with joy in my soul. I was rested and content…already making plans for my return to Jardin del Mar. it was a lovely stay - thank you for the experience.

If you are searching for a memorable spot to spend some time on the Bay of Banderas, this is it! Like the area, but don’t like the all-inclusive experience? Stay here! Love being on the ocean, hearing the waves lap the shore at night? Stay here! Love Mexican artwork, beautiful architecture, local flora and fauna? Stay here! Appreciate attention to detail, caring hosts and genuine, warm human interaction? Stay here! We could go on, but suffice to say, the glowing reviews you read about this place are genuine. Jardin del Mar comes as advertised…a true “Private Oasis by the Sea”. Having been to the PV and surrounding area a number of times we were looking for some place we could call home while we visited friends and family in La Cruz, Bucerias and PV. When we discovered Jardin del Mar, we were pretty sure we had found exactly what we were looking for and upon arrival were immediately blown away by the beauty of the property and by the warm reception from our wonderful hosts, Tomas and Eric. They made us feel like family from the moment we walked in the door. Everything about the place exceeded our expectations. We feel very grateful to have met you guys and been able to spend some time enjoying your beautiful property…we definitely plan to be back!

Absolutely beautiful property. Very tranquil, laid back atmosphere. We really loved the unique old Mexico decor & vibe. We could not walk to restaurants, but never had a problem getting a cab. The owners are extremely accomadating.

We stayed here for 1 week. Very quiet, relaxing and such a beautiful place to stay. Walking distance to La Cruz, short taxi ride to Bucerias. The views are spectacular. Our room was incredible. The best part was the hosts Tomas and Eric. Always friendly and more than happy to chat or just give us information regarding the surrounding areas. This place is so beautiful, but Tomas and Eric make it so!!

Friends invited us to travel with them on the Valentines weekend. We were met by Tomas and Eric when we checked in. Room was really nice and the guacamole that was in the fridge was outstanding. It is landscaped beautifully and the pool was crystal clear. We met couples from Canada and throughout the US. Would I stay here again that is a BIG YES!
