It's a bit scary choosing accommodations on the internet - sight unseen, with minimal reviews - especially when the cost of the place is fairly inexpensive. We took a risk and were pleasantly surprised. My partner and I stayed in Casita Papaya - a one bedroom unit on the ground floor - for two weeks this winter. Villa Buena Vida was exactly what we were looking for. This is not a high end, luxury place but it is super clean, comfortable and has an "at home" feeling about it. Now, for those who are into cleanliness - The whole place was absolutely spotless! There is a small "dipping" pool which was cleaned several times a week. It was great for dunking into after a hot day on the beach. The patio, grounds and common kitchen/gathering spot were all well maintained. Although maid service is offered weekly, the staff were around everyday and were happy to clean as needed/desired. There were plenty of towels, the bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped with pots and pans, dishes, a full fridge, stove, microwave, a blender, and lots of ice cube trays. Purified water was always available. Since it is a smaller complex, we were concerned about noise from neighbours, but we soon found that the other guests staying there were very mindful of each other and we had no issues at all. The spot is located in an older part of town, about a 6 minute walk along a cobblestone street to the town plaza. We rented the property through Primavera Properties and we cannot say enough about the women who booked the accommodation for us. Ilsa and Virginia were absolutely wonderful. They were so very helpful and happy to answer all our questions before arriving in Sayulita. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Sayulita. The price was extremely reasonable, and the space was suitable for all ages. We met some great people and made a couple of nice friends while staying here.

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
