We were originally going to stay in Sayulita, but heard about Cielo Rojo (and San Pancho in general) from some friends, and decided to stay for a couple nights before heading to the larger and busier town of Sayulita. We fell in love with San Pancho and ended up spending the majority of our vacation there.
Cielo Rojo was one of the reasons why we loved our stay in San Pancho. It had a warm and welcoming atmosphere, right from the start. We arrived at night, and when we were taken to our room, we followed a candlelit lined staircase all the way up the stairs. It was beautiful. The collection of art and furniture that was on display throughout was interesting and beautiful to look at. Old movie posters, photographs, wood furniture, whale bones in the courtyard. The attention to detail was evident. The place was very clean and well kept.
The organic restaurant was wonderful (great organic granola, tequila, fresh baked bread, seafood, salads). The staff in both the restaurant and the hotel were friendly and helpful, and really made you feel welcomed.
We also really liked that you could buy some of the restaurant's offerings like granola, organic tequila, or soap from the hotel. They also had some interesting jewelry on display that you could admire (or buy) - and not your standard mexican silver.
Location was great - just off the main road, so you could walk all around the small town. You could walk to the beach, yoga studio, restaurants, shops, etc. It was also well situated to drive a few minutes to Sayulita, if you wanted a little more action and to see more tourists.
This place is, in a word, charming. We will go back in a heartbeat.
