“Colorful and comfortable!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We loved this beautiful spot in Sayulita, recommended to us by our nice taxi driver, Lalo. Very colorful, filled with art, a block from the beach, surrounded by restaurants and shops. Wonderful location. Our bungalow was on the second floor, had 2 nice bedrooms and a kitchen/ living room all open to a big balcony. There was a big tree next to us with iguanas in it (not the famous iguana tree, which is one block over).

Really nice and cosy place to stay in Sayulita! The best location near by the beach. Staff and owners are super, kind and trustworthy. The bungalows are clean, beatiful and suitable for lonely travellers as well as for couples and families! Defenitely the place to visit and accommodation to stay in.

This was our 1st stop in Sayulita and wow was that a good decision. We stayed in the penthouse bungalow and it was all that we would have hoped for! Amazing!! Small kitchen, beautiful art, all the amenities and a view of the ocean. Staff were very helpful and you couldn't be in a better location in Sayulita. One block from the beach and you are directly on the plaza already. Best spot in downtown Sayulita!! They really have invested to make this place shine. Every detail has it's story. Thank you Nazario!!

You would be hard pressed to find a better proximity to both the beach and town. The owners and ladies that work there were lovely, and the room was nicely decorated and very clean. Great little outdoor kitchen and sitting area.

We were in the penthouse, which had a nice view of the surrounding area. We really had a wonderful time here. I would head back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: If possible, go for the penthouse or one below it. Nice private feeling and you feel like you're...

We stayed for 5 days at Aurinko Bungalows and we loved every day there! The staff is very friendly and made us feel welcome. We stayed in the back of the property in the second floor and though the weather was hot, the second floor provided a nice breeze thanks to the trees. It is a block from the beach and right in front of the plaza where there is a lot of great restaurants and bars. It can get a bit noisy like other guest in other reviews had said, but it wasn't that bad honestly. It was perfect for a family of 3 (with a baby) because we had a kitchen and a small living room where we could spend our morning or afternoons just relaxing and cooking. The staff always washed the dishes and kept the rooms and bathroom clean, which I didn't expect for a small hotel in a hippie town like Sayulita. Totally worth the money!

Room Tip: Tip: if you want a little more privacy, ask for the rooms in the back on the second or third floor.

We were road-tripping round Mexico and had a confirmed Rez at Aurinka. They re-sold our confirmed room at a higher price. There was a surfing event in town and we had no place to stay. This is unprofessional and potentially dangerous. Do not patronize this facility. They should not be in business.

I stayed here during a solo trip to Sayulita in August. The bungalow I stayed in was towards the back of the property. It was clean, private and equipped with all kinds of charming details - a hammock, interesting woven blankets and pillows, unique art and most importantly, air conditioning. Make sure you sleep with the windows closed, otherwise mosquitos will eat you alive.

The outdoor area is really nice to have to - it comes with a full-size fridge so you can stock up on bottled water from the store across the street. Spend some time in the hammock (though you'll have to climb up using the table as a step) and you might see an iguana/lizard in the big tree across the way.

The staff was really kind, friendly and kindly cleaned the bungalow each day.

Great experience and would definitely come back here again.
