“An EcoFriendly Five Star Resort?!?!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014 via mobile

Kind of sounded like an oxymoron to me! But Majahuitas Resort DEFINITELY lived up to the TripAdvisor recommendations (well except for the few who wrote such opposing views that I questioned the owner about them! Horse meat? Really?!?! Failed to mention the owner offered to help you find lodging that suited you better in Puerto Vallarta AND not charge you for your "miserable" night BUT you declined and stayed at Majahuitas! So obviously your review is misleading in the least in my opinion.) Anyway, back to MY review: My wife was afraid of "critters" and I was afraid of not liking the food. I am proud to report NOT EVEN A BUG BITE or sighting! And the food was SPECTACULAR! Plenty of options at each meal and more food that the group could eat! Wonderful service all day, beachside drink service, VERY clean accommodations, beautifully candlelit dining, paths and rooms more than compensated for the idea of "no electricity". This place is paradise on Earth! There were even two couples who came by boat from Puerto Vallarta to visit friends for the day and ended up staying the night while their luggage sat in their unused room in a high-rise beach resort in the city. Didn't think Majahuitas was "for them" and seriously regretted their decision to stay away because of no electricity. My advice? DO IT! But hurry - the owner's lease expires in a couple of years and this peaceful place will be no more...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Majahuitas ten years ago, and we recently returned for an anniversary trip. Sadly, the weather was unseasonably rainy, which was quite disappointing. However, the staff was wonderful, the food was fantastic, and we managed to have a relaxing time anyway. Be aware, Majahuitas isn't for everyone. Accommodations are on the rustic side and there is very little in the way of electricity (just some weak solar-powered lights). However, the candlelight is very romantic. If you don't mind a little adventure, I can't recommend this place enough. Be aware, if you want to go, you should go soon. Majahuitas will only be open for two more years (which I think is a tragedy).

Room Tip: We stayed in Chula Vista, which has a great view if you can handle a few stairs. Cliff House has an...

Majahuitas Resort lives up to its many amazing reviews. The location is beautiful, tucked into the jungle with a view of the perfect sandy bay and ocean everywhere you look. Nights were dark and peaceful with candles everywhere to light your way. It was so nice to be away from it all and not have to worry about anything. The service is amazing! They treat you like family while being professional and considerate of all your needs. We did the hike to the waterfall and the trip to Yelapa. Both were great experiences, mostly for the fact that you get such a personal tour, you aren’t in a large group so you can see and do what you want. I also had the massage by the river which was one of the best I’ve ever had and a great value. The rest of our time was spent relaxing on the beach and in our casita, swimming, playing ping pong and other games, watching the wildlife and mostly eating! The food is great and there is lots of it! We had brought a couple snacks thinking we might be hungry between meals but didn’t even touch them. Make sure to bring bug spray, we got quite a few bites while on the beach. All the casitas appear to be open air; you are in the jungle with nature surrounding you which is all part of the experience. We had geckos on the walls, birds and critters come in during the night, all harmless and more entertaining than anything. It was really an incredible and unique experience and we plan to visit again!

My girlfriend and I spent three days here and absolutely loved it. Peaceful, beautiful, and romantic. The food was abundant and well prepared. The owners were very kind and the housekeeping was prompt and well timed. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. If you like privacy and are looking for a romantic getaway, this is the place.

I was taken here by a good friend on a day pass for my birthday. What could be better? A beautiful, private beach with a superb snorkeling cove nearby. Beautiful tropical fish in the water and the most photo friendly tropical surroundings ever. Our group was brought ashore on a panga and welcomed by the amazing staff (thank you Julie) to our private Eden. We were given free run of the facilities. They fixed an amazing lunch of guacamole, BBQ fish, fish ceviche, chicken fajitas, butterfly shrimp, rice and beans and all of the staff came down the beach clanging pots and pans with my birthday cake. They have all the gear you need for snorkeling, boarding, kayaking. The price was very reasonable and we felt so welcomed and pampered. We are already planning a trip back and plan to spend at least one night away from all electronic interruptions. Look at their website and you will want to be there right now!

My boyfriend and I left Majahuitas yesterday, spending the boat ride back to the mainland talking about nothing other than when we might be able to come back! This, along with the fact that we extended our stay by a further two nights within twenty four hours of arrival, shows how much we loved our stay there!

From start to finish, everything was perfect: our gorgeous casita, Los Mangos; the stunning beach, with its crystal waters; the wonderful, plentiful food and the welcoming atmosphere created by warm hearted owners, Margot and Kev, their staff and of course, the playful Labs who we totally fell in love with.

While sleeping in an open-fronted bedroom in the jungle clearly isn't for everyone, for us and the other couples staying it was an unforgettable adventure. Majahuitas truly offers a unique escape from the everyday stresses and demands of 'the real world' and where else do you get to learn to paddle board with two Labradors on the board with you?!

We loved every minute! Thank you so much to everyone at the resort for taking such good care of us. We hope to come and see you again!

This was the most amazing vacation I have ever had. I went with my boyfriend and we both anticipated the idea of NOT having our cell phones, computers, TV's, etc....We stayed in Casa Chula, AMAZING!! We loved our own deck and outdoor shower built into the rocks. The candles at night were so lovely. The food was delicious. The people so friendly. We are definitely going back.

Room Tip: We chose Chula based on other reviews. We saw inside several. I would also try cliff house, and Boug...
