I stayed at Macondo for 5 months and Charlie and Mel made it feel like home for me. It is the best location in Sayulita, on the north side and less than a 5min walk to the beach and has a secure access so I always felt safe. The bungalow was equipped with everything I needed for my stay and more, the complex is really well maintained and there is daily cleaning service if you need it. I loved having the pool to cool off on hot days, they also provide beach chairs, towels, umbrellas etc which are a really nice addition. I recommended friends to stay here and I look forward to coming back and staying with them again.

Macondo Bungalows is a lovely, old Mexico style property with multiple room options. We stayed in the Traveler Palm for 3 nights. The price is right for high season - albeit it simple accommodations. Nothing fancy. The bed would be challenging for us for more than three nights but others may not mind. It’s open air so you can hear more than you may want to sometimes, but that’s part of the charm. The location has a secure entrance. The owner was helpful and welcoming.

I had the Courtyard bungalow for 11 days. It is nice and quiet, back from the street, and has a great little area in the kitchen to do computer work from. Cleaning service was excellent, even my shirts were rolled up or folded. Highly recommended.

Hello.. stayed here for 3 nights in January. We had the "Courtyard", and our friends had the "Sunset". Both up one flight, and we shared the Terrace which included a huge open air-palapa covered kitchen. The place was extremely clean. Our room had a nice living room area, comfy queen size bed, and bathroom. Safety deposit box as well. The Bungalows is in a great location. A few short blocks to the beach, a few blocks the other way to the plaza. Lots of stores and restaurants close by. Owners of the resort were friendly and accommodating. Rooms very traditional Mexican. Loved this place and would highly recommend, would definitely stay here again.

This was our second time in Sayulita and we loved it. Melanie and Charlie are great hosts. Three was always a good supply of Beach towels and chairs plus two boogie boards and a surf board. Two blocks from the beach so I would check the waves, then come back for which ever board would work best for me. The kitchen and patio were our go to place to relax first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was all that we need - sink, toilet and shower with good flow. I can't comment on the living room as we never used it! It looked nice when we passed through it to the bedroom. Compared to our Canadian home with double glazed windows and insulation, Sayulita is noisy. Ear plugs are available if this bothers you, I think this will be the case anywhere in Sayulita. Would you stay there again? You bet.

6 nights in Sayulita and we felt we picked a winner. Tasteful and traditional this was a full apartment with everything we needed away from home. Very clean and comfortable, and our hosts Melanie and Charles were very accommodating as we needed to make a last minute change by a whole week. Unfortunately through injury we were unable to take advantage of the beach toys that were on offer. Well located it was far enough away from any noise from restaurants and bars. Would highly recommend to make this your no. 1 choice while in Sayulita and we would love to return to this quaint little town. Sonya and Gary, New Zealand

- We stayed at the Courtyard; it's a big room with a bedroom that has a queen size bed (I think), very comfy; a nice bathroom with hot water. Right next to the bedroom there is a small living room with 2 couches (very comfy also) and a table. The room has a safety box for you to use at no extra charge. - The room is very fresh, even cold at times! Please note that we stayed during December. - Right outside the room there is the kitchen, which is under a palapa. The kitchen has everything you need to cook some delicious breakfast. - The owners are super nice and let you borrow chairs, umbrellas and towels for you to take to the beach. - The beach is 2 blocks away, a 5-10 minute walk depending on how fast you are. - The plaza is 3 blocks away, a 5-10 minute walk as well. - We drove to Sayulita ,there is no private parking but we parked across the street and there was no problem at all.

Great location, great accomodations, great value, such nice owner/managers, this place is quiet and private in a nice neighborhood where you feel like you are living locally. There are also surfboards, umbrellas, beach chairs, towels, etc to use free. Plus the owners will answer any questions and give tips on where to go, what to do, where to eat.

My husband and I stayed in the Terrace bungalow and loved it. It's a 1 bedroom apt. in Sayulita with all the amenities and little touches that you need. We only cooked breakfast twice while there and found the kitchen well stocked. Grocery stores are nearby as are wine shops. The housekeeper kept everything clean and organized and our hosts Charles and Melanie were gracious and discreet and they were extremely helpful with restaurants and renting a golf cart. Everything you need for the beach and fun in the water is provided at the front door and their sweet dog helped us to not get too homesick for our own. We can't wait to go back.
