Aurinko Bungalows
Reviewed 16 March 2013 via mobile

The bungalows are very clean and have everything you need for a great stay in sayulita. The short walk to the beach and the main square was really convenient. The bright decor and hammock in the living area added some fantastic touches. The Finnish family care taking the bungalows when we arrived were so kind and helpful!
The only thing which put me off a bit was that I had pre paid for three nights and due to a travel mistake, arrived one day late. It was my fault and I didn't have the chance to let the owners know. I didn't necessarily expect to get a refund for the night that we didn't stay but perhaps a discount next time or a partial refund would have been an incentive to return. I had also recommended the bungalows to two other families who had stayed there because of my recommendation. It's amazing how the little extra things and word of mouth can be good for business! But in this case, I may or may not return to BA.

Their online contact form was not working and I did not get a response initially. However, after sending a direct email to the hotel, the Aurinko Bungalows accommodated my last minute booking online with ease. The payment was easy and the contact there was very helpful.

We stayed 3 nights in Aurinko Bungalows and we loved the place. We stayed in the one bedroom suite that was at the highest unit of the complex on the 3rd floor. It felt like a little hideaway in the sky with sounds of the ocean waves crashing in the background. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our shower drain was clogged and the staff fixed it for us right away.

Our only suggestion is to change the florescent lightbulbs that is on the outdoor patio and the lighting in the bedroom - it's a bit harsh. Just a little warning, that the living room is totally outdoors - during our visit, the evenings were around 20 degrees C and it was a bit chilly to sit in the living room without sweaters. Also on the one Saturday night we stayed at the bungalows, there was an outdoor party that was very loud and kept us up most of the night but in fairness, I think the entire town would have heard the music.

Otherwise we were very happy to have stayed here and would definitely stay there again.

We staid here for 11 nights. It was a really positive stay, easy, the service was great, always clean rooms and friendly staff. The bungalows are located really conveniently just a block away from the beach. Right infront of the bungalow, you have a shop where you can fill in the fridge with food and drinks. If you don't feel like cooking, there are plenty of restaurants just a couple of minutes walk away. The owners of the bungalows also had a surf shop right next to the beach with a good selection of different kinds of boards. All in all, excellent location, really good athmosphere and affordable prices. Looking forward to coming back!

Room Tip: Try the penthouse;)

Stayed here with a friend, was an wonderful place. the Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They have surfboards for use on site, or deals with one of the surf companies in town for discounted rates.

The rooms are extremely clean, nice hot showers, fresh linens and a comfortable bed. THere is also a hammock on your patio with a nice kitchen. 2 blocks from the beach and right next to the main square. Aurinko has a wonderful feel. relaxing, private, and secure.
I love staying here when i am in town and can not wait to go back.

We found Aurinko Bungalows to be clean, friendly and will definetly recommend it to friends. Petteri, who is the host, is a wonderful young man. He is most pleasant and helpful. It's close to the beach and shops. Kitchenettes have everything you need and the room we had did have A/C but the fans worked well enough. The beds were comfy and the pillows are soft and fluffy - a must for me. We will be back next year.

A really great place, close to the beach and plaza. The staff is friendly and makes sure that you have a clean and neat bungalow to return to after being on the beach all day. Thanks! Will stay here when I return to Sayulita!

We are pretty much locals from Vallarta who head up to Sayulita as often as we can over weekends etc. When we do we often stay at Aurinko because the place is so beautiful. The decor is amazing, rooms are clean, have their own kitchenettes and big fridges with a freezer. There is no AC but the rooms have ceiling fans and are pretty much open to the air so it's not too hot. I absolutely love this place, and whenever friends or family come to visit us here we take them there and they are amazed. The only problem we have had there is that it is so quiet at night and apparently we make too much noise in the early hours, so have been told to keep it down a few times! Other than that I love this place :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs so that you are away from the entrance where people walk past you all day.
