The Good Life Villa
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Stayed in the Limon suite at La Buena Vida - misrepresented big time - no "kitchenette" - no sink! no microwave nothing but a fridge with the plastic and labels still on the front) and coffeemaker - cheap plastic holder for knives forks etc. had to shake the drawers they were so cheap to get them to open. "Closet" was a small coat rack beside the bed (that was beside the bathroom with no door).

No door on the bathroom? - really? Yes!

No table and no chairs in our unit (nor in others, we were told by fellow guests) - not one - although empty space where they could go

Wildly wrong description on the Sayulita site that owner admitted but was apparently in no rush to correct. But "kitchenette" etc. on the site of the LBV itself.

It's beautiful to look at but incredible lack of basic amenities.

Stench in shower drain had to be covered over by bathroom rug - that worked thank god

No towels for the beach although they too were promised - local managers basically said tough, not all units have beach towels, didn't care that owner said they did
