We arrived in Sayulita late at night and found this place right on the beach. The reception area was closed, so we spoke with someone at the restaurant next door who ended up calling this guy named "Nacho", who nicely gave us a room for the night- although it was actually a tent, which is fine, just not for 960 pesos! However; the next morning as we were woken up by squawking birds (and not the nice kind of squawking birds) and were able to see our surroundings, we found that there was black mold all over roof of the tent and on the furniture which had been strategically covered with sheets, not to mention there was an army of ants crawling inside my bag. Bugs are to be expected when staying in a tent, but the mold was a different story. I immediately tracked down this Nacho person, who acted totally oblivious to the whole thing and seemed to not even know what mold was. He ended up showing us a different suite, which was nicer and much cleaner, but refused to give it to us for the same rate as we originally paid. In my opinion, this is just bad business. We ended up leaving and staying in town for almost half the price in a much nicer room. As an aside, he had given us a free drink ticket for the bar/restaurant next door. We ended up returning the next day to give it a try, but everything was closed in the middle of the day. We returned AGAIN to see if they were open for dinner, and this time there were people preparing pasta outside, with flies just sitting all over it. We left, and for good this time. I'm rating this based on my experience.
