Looking back on our stay at The Inn at San Pancho/Gato Gordo last winter I can honestly say that it blew away our hopes and expectations. Having travelled with our family to Sayulitas a few times we decided to give San Pancho a try. This time we left the kids at home and it was just my wife/best friend and me. Both the town and the Inn were exactly what we were hoping for. SP has a bit of a slower pace than Sayulitas but it is filled with local color, great people, quaint restaurants and the main beach was absolutely lovely. We were in SP for a week and very easily could have stretched it out to a few months!
The Inn at San Pancho is the spot! The grounds are immaculate and well laid out. The pool was as blue as can be and provided for long mornings close to home as the sun grew warmer. We stayed in two different units due to the length of our stay and loved both of them. The rooms and décor are charming, clean and well thought out. We also got to know the owner, Ilene, who could not have been more warm and engaging! She’s full of great stories, kindness and warmth, and will make sure that you have a great experience.
I should add that I take my vacations seriously and am not always easy to please. We left the Inn at San Pancho with a smile and a tan. We recommend it highly and would return in a heartbeat!

Embraced by the colors of Mexico, with jaunty peacock blue skies each morning, and the gaudy sprawl of sunset ushering in each star-filled night, this enchanting Inn with its spectacular vistas weaves days that unfold like magic, and spins memories that will cling forever. ... more less
