“We'll Be Back!”
Reviewed March 27, 2011

We can't say enough about the gracious hospitality of Mary Ann and Richard Hodge. They made our stay feel more like we were part of an extended family than mere paying guests. Loved the location, the rooms, the value, and the many small kindnesses that made us feel so welcome.

We highly recommend the Macondo Bungalows and hope you get the chance to look them up!

Mary Ann and Richard were both wonderful hosts, and made us feel instantly at home. The room was clean and quaint, and had all the amenities (thanks again for the ironing board). Not only do they provide free boogie boards, surfboards, and beach 'stuff' - they were both also a wealth of information for the adventurous traveler...

My wife and I spent a week here around Christmas and most definitely will come back. It was the kind of hotel in which you just feel comfortable. Reasonably priced and very clean with owners on scene to answer any questions you might have. I'm always alittle uneasy because my Spanish is very limited, but with Richard and MaryAnn being from Oregon, it was all good. If you have no need for expensive hotels and all their "services", and just want a place to enjoy the local restaurants and go to the beach, then Macondo Bungalows is definitely worth investigating!

The Macondo Bungalows are located a few short blocks from the beach and town, with small grocery stores and restaurants within steps of the bungalows. We've stayed right downtown in Sayulita before and it can be very noisy, so the Macondo's location on the edge of town is just right. The rooms themselves are very comfortable, and the outdoor space lends itself well to meeting other travelers - many of whom we ended up having dinner with and going on outings. Two years ago we had the studio apartment, the Sunrise, for three weeks, and that worked fine for our needs. But this time we rented the Courtyard as it has the large outdoor palapa kitchen, which we made good use of as we were traveling with friends. We made many dinners with our friends in that great kitchen, sometimes inviting neighbors in the Sunrise room to join us (as well as Richard and MaryAnne, our wonderful friends and hosts). The rooms are well-equipped, kept sparkling clean and anything you need is quickly provided by the staff. I would highly recommend the Macondo for the great value, convenient location, secure location and comfy rooms!

We were the first guests at the Macondo Toscana - Richard and MaryAnn had completed the finishing touches on our room just prior to our arrival. They were very accommodating to our needs, providing us with beach amenities, etc. However, because of the new nature of our room, it was a little noisy for lack of insulation. Richard, for a small additional payment, was kind enough to take us on a snorkeling tour nearby. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

I have stayed with Dick and Mary Ann at the Macondo Bungalows three times. The rooms each have a character of their own and are immaculate and very comfortable. Macondo is well designed and built with attention to every detail. Dick and Mary Ann are excellent hosts with years of experience in the area that they are more than willing to share. On this last trip Dick took us out on his 21 foot sail boat where we cruised along side a group of whales and took in the amazing scenery of Banduras Bay. Great place to stay in Sayulita!

Unsurpassed hospitality for the value-conscious traveler. Richard and Mary Ann Hodge have created a warm and welcoming haven where you can relax and play. Their place is located within walking distance of the downtown scene, but far enough away to appreciate some solitude. Conveniently located within blocks of the more private beaches, surfing, and hiking. They willingly share their knowledge of all aspects of local culture. We absolutely loved Macondo Bungalows and we will return!!!
