“Great place to stay in La Ventana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

This small six room property was a great place to stay. Would certainly stay again. Rowdy, wins "The best host award", for being so genuinely kind and gracious and immediately makes you feel welcome. He was quick to provide anything we needed and had lots of advice on all of our questions and helped make arrangements via his wide array of friends in the area. We arrived tired and hungry and he immediately led us to a great place for dinner to decompress and fill us in on our many inquires. Rowdy just makes you smile.

The six rooms surround a courtyard making it a great place to stay alone or with other couples or even families. You could easily reserve the entire place for a group and the dining area and kitchen would be perfect for your gatherings. If you have kids they could be in the room right next to you it's so quite and safe. If you are a couple just ask for a room on the end. Kitchen was complete and easy to use. Had a spectacular roof top view of the bay and Cerralvo Island. Fun to watch the boats, birds, sunset, moon, and wind come up on the water. Bring your binoculars.

Good location away from the hustle of town. It was nice to always return to our place away from the street lights with moonlit views of the bay. An easy walk to the best beach in the area that also happens to have hot springs. You can dig your own hot tub in the sand and watch it fill up with hot water. Sometimes you have to add a bucket of sea water from two steps away to cool it down! There is plenty of room to launch a kite, snorkle, windsurf, hike, swim, or just play in the sand. There are even palapas to find some shade under.

A great value.

Forgot to mention, they have bikes and two vehicles you can use during your stay. Pictures to follow.

Learned of the Downwinder via word of mouth in La Ventana and our stay could not have been better! Near the end of our honeymoon, this Inn was exactly what we were looking for! Rowdy was a joy of a host and so very accomodating! Rooms were comfy and quiet, all were well equiped. We wanted for nothing during our too-short stay! The view from the roof was breathtaking both for a sunset cocktail and a sunrise yoga practice.

I have been traveling to the area for 7 years windsurfing, Downwinder inn is a new hotel in the LaVentana/El Sargento area. It is located outside of town away from the noise and hustle. Easy walk to the empty beach which is a great launch area, fabulous views from the roofs. There are 6 rooms, queen beds, full baths, hot showers in each room. The owners are very nice and want to help guest maximize your wind seeking activities, with the downwinder shuttle. This the best deal in the area for $65/night
