The small cafe, Flor es Ser was awesome!!! The couple running it were super friendly as well as a couple local customers, Leo and his brother Armando! I had avocado cheese egg toast and a matcha iced drink! Colorful pictures and their puppy, “Monster” a bonus!

Travelling from Canada to Nuevo Vallarta each winter since 2013 my wife & I have stayed at this hotel on two occasions when overnighting in Sayulita, most recently on Jan.08 & 09. Previous reviews by other guests adequately describe the rooms, the noise and hotel location within the town. I will simply confirm that our young, female receptionist was courteous & helpful when we walked in off the street having made no reservation. She showed us a room that was spotlessly clean with minimum but tasteful decor. It suited our every need for our two night stay and the ear plugs negated any outside clatter. The rooftop area is simply wonderful and feels like an oasis when one wants a break from the bustling town centre. We would definitely stay here again.

Cute little hotel one block from the central plaza. This was the second time we stayed here. There is only about 10 rooms, so it’s difficult to book. Love the ambiance,the rooftop lounge, courtesy tequila, and hammock. The rooms are clean and perfect size. The bathroom is an all-in-one sink, shower, toilet combined (interesting but it works). The air conditioning works well which is important too. Really cute place for couples,

We where in Sayulita for the day, and decided to stay. We found this little hotel close to the main plaza and loved it. Because it is so close to the main plaza it can be noisy at night but they provide earplugs and we didn’t even notice the noise. It has a many beautiful details like hearts in the doors, and a gorgeous terrace. The owner must be an artist that makes us Arabian style Decor with a Mexican flair. The room we chose didn’t have AC, but it was cool enough with the fan. Very affordably priced!! Will definitely plan on returning in the future.

We stayed three nights and absolutely loved the room. We were in room 1, which is the heart room. A magical walkway and a comfortable bed. The bathroom has a palapa roof which ads to the charm. There is a noise issue on weekends from the surrounding bars, but just stay up with the party people and it’s not an issue.

Stayed one night to sneak in some surfing before returning to USA. While Sayulita is a bit too "done" for my taste, Hafa was a perfect touchdown between surf sessions. They include a mini fridge, helpful for leftovers from huge Mexican meals.

I just got back from my birthday trip to Sayulita, where I stayed at the Hotel Hafa. The people couldn't be nicer, and the decor couldn't be more charming. It IS located right off of the town plaza, so noise is to be expected, but you're right in the heart of things, and the beach is only a block away. Reception staff was super helpful with tips (Playa de los Muertos!) and helped me to book an adventure to the Hidden Beach in the Marietas Islands, which is now super limited. My room was a cool oasis when I would return from the boiling hot beach. A BIG lizard hung out in my room almost every day, so I had to get used to that (and it jumping out at me from under towels and stuff, causing daily screams - sorry!) until I finally chased it out and up the steps one day. There was always someone up on the roof hanging out, so I didn't really get to use that space - and didn't see any comp tequila, but it was the off season, so ? The bar wasn't open when I was there that I saw, so will have to return for the "best margarita in town". The attached boutique has beautiful souvenirs, and there are great restaurants in every direction. Café El Espresso on the corner was my morning hub for coffee and food fuel. Everyone I show my photos to are jealous and gasp at how pretty Hotel Hafa is. I'm daydreaming about it right now .... GO!

We walked in off the street, no reservation. The hotel has all kinds of funky architectural details that make it a unique place to spend time - we had a thatched roof in part of our room, there are stairs made from beach stones, a whitewashed parapet with divans to lounge on, a nice balcony, and inner courtyard.

Thank you for the comment! The hotel was though as "Moroccan riad meets Mexico". It's nice to get noticed for all the details we built in the decoration :)

Well... the fact that when you enter your room and there is a package of ear plugs on each night stand is really all you need to know. The hotel is within half a block of a handful of night spots, including some that have live music. The roofing is this kind of thatched roof and the rooms aren't completely sealed, so there is pretty much no noise protection. The music kicks into gear at about 10pm and doesn't stop until 4am. One of the biggest offenders is actually the hotel's own night establishment right next door. It's basically like trying to sleep in a night club. Even if the ear plugs decrease the noise by 75%, you still feel all the vibrations. My wife and I are in our late thirties and we came with our 2 year old daughter. This is definitely not a place for families or any lovers of peace and quiet. We ended up moving out after a couple of days and found a place on the North Shore (Hotelito De Los Sueños, which we highly recommend). That's where most of the foreign families stay. It's right on the beach and the part of the beach that is much less busy. You could hear a pin drop at night. There are plenty of restaurants there and it's still only a 15 minute walk to town. Now, if we put the noise issue aside, the hotel was fine. The decor is very interesting and beautiful. The staff are super friendly. The roof top deck is a great place to chill and have a siesta. Anyhow, if you are big into going out late into night and having a few drinks, this place might work for you. But, for most families, especially those with young children where you turn in around 10 or 11pm, I would head to the North Shore and avoid the main square area.

Hello Rob, Thank you for expressing your experience on TripAdvisor. I understand your dissatisfaction and I am sorry you were inconvenienced by the noise. Petit Hotel Hafa is in the town center as our guest usually appreciate being in the center of action: only 2 blocks from the beach, close to restaurants, yoga classes, shops and a few bars… Being here with us in January, the busiest time of the year, I get that our place wasn’t the quietest one in town. We care a lot about the welfare of our guests during their stay. Therefore we’ve been working with the town’s regulation to reduce the music to a minimum after midnight. Our own bar never closes after hours, and as of last month, no bars in Sayulita can open after 1PM. Our guest’s satisfaction is always our priority, and this is why we generously offered a full refund, so you could find a quieter place to enjoy your vacation. Please know that we take all feedback very seriously as we are always striving to improve our service and facilities. Best regards, Petit Hotel Hafa team <3

My boyfriend and I were in town for a family wedding, and Petit Hotel d'Hafa was listed as a recommended place to stay. We were in town for 7 days, and we stayed in room 6. The room was very nice. The atmosphere was very authentic and colorful. Keep in mind, room 6 does not have AC. We knew this ahead of time, so we knew what we were in for. Very pleasant staff! They helped us get transportation to and from the airport. Enjoyed the rooftop at night. Very peaceful and beautiful.
