It's not easy finding this hotel since there are no clear markings off the road ,but once you find it is impressive being on a hillside with only 6 spacious rooms. You can here the waves pulling into the parking lot. With so many trees surrounding the hotel ,it's easy to get lost walking around until you get used to... More

The place is amazing and will submerge every guest in the quiet sounds of the jungle and the breaking waves of the ocean. Food is above average and the staff is very kind and helpful. They have also a tapas bar at the beach and they serve delicious snacks and main plates. Despite there is no beach in front of... More

There is great and personalized service, food is awesome, location is near to perfect, although you have to walk about 200 m to the beach it is still fine, it is great to wake up in the middle of the rain forest with nothing surrounding you but trees, probably the only drawback is the lack of AC on the room,...

Thank you for your commentaries, we are pleased that you enjoyed the food, the jungle hillside and the beach. We do have now ONE of the Suites "La Puerta" that has optional AC. As you mention depending on the year and "global warming" from November until May the heat is manageable without it. From May until the end of October... More

My boyfriend and I just had a spectacular vacation at Majahua! Our fantastic host, Fernando, picked us up from the airport in Puerta Vallarta.

You cannot drive to the site. An uphill slog from beautiful Mar de Jade, next door, to the dining area, which does have a fine view of the beach, far below. From there, to get to your room, there are 63 steps cut into the steep hillside. Steps that are of uneven heights, uneven stone, poorly lit, and with no... More

My husband and I spent 9 days in Chacala over Christmas break and happened upon Majahua on our first afternoon exploring. We rented a house in town so do not have any experience with the hotel aspect of this place. What I can vouch for are the dynamite margaritas in a magical setting overlooking the water, as well as the... More

Majahua was recommended to me by friends based in Mexico. It is at the more private/select end of the pristine Chalaca beach .. at a safe distance from the 'colourful' beach resort. The rustic chalets are hidden away in the jungle right at the edge of the ocean (don't expect tv in your room you would not hear it!!). Bring... More

We have spent much time at Majahua and have always found it to be excellent. Jose Enrique, the owner, is always there and attentive to guests' needs. The food is above average. When we had guests coming to Mexico, we always take them there for the superb food, accomodations and service. There's nothing better in the region!

We struggled over whether to stay at Majahua or a cheaper, more traditional hotel in Sayulita or Chacala. The reviews we read seemed mixed (jungle utopia or lackluster wannabe?) In the end we went with it and were pleasantly surprised. The room we stayed in, Suite A, was spacious and gracefully set in the mountains with a killer hammock out... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Majahua is located by the sea at the south end of Chacala bay built into the flank of the hill. It has magnificent views of the ocean being within a few steps from the sandy beach. In its construction, a mindful effort was made to disturb the natural environment as little as possible.Colored in tones of ochre so that they blend into the terrain;the rooms are constructed so as to follow and fit into the natural inclines of the terrain.Majahua is situated on about 2.5 acres,an exclusive setting for its six guest quarters, their terraces, our restaurant,the Gallery of the Jungle, and an intimate, splendid spa.The jungle-like forest surrounding the buildings has been preserved.The guest quarters provide guests with an ideal place for resting, reading, writing, or meditating without interruptions.Their design is playful and arty, reflecting the whimsy of their creators. ... more   less
