Bungalows Unelma
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Bucerias
Reviewed 15 October 2012

I have returned many times to these bungalows. The grounds are lush gardens and lawn down to the beach. No shortage of hammocks, lounge chairs and ocean toys like kayaks and paddle boards. If you are lucky, Timoteo will cut open a coconut for you to enjoy while you relax on the beach. You can walk from here to whatever you need. Stock up the fridge and cook at home in the fully equipped open air kitchen. Enjoy high quality linens, art and spotless housekeeping by Maria. Great value, peace and quiet at Bungalows Unelma.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice, but the upstairs round bungalow is extra special.

We had a wonderful getaway in Bucerias and stayed at these bungalows. We had the newest suite towards the back of the property but still had a view of the ocean and could hear the waves. It is also right next to a cute jazz restaurant with some great live music every night. Don't worry, they quit early! The gardens are beautiful and the staff is great. You also have your own private little beach area with kayaks, boogie boards, paddle boards and beach towels! We had so much fun and would definitely stay there again! You can even drink their water! There are only two other couples so it is very quiet and relaxing. It is in a great part of town, close to all the art and great restaurants!

Room Tip: The best would be the top bungalow as far as view, but other than that, each suite is beautiful and...

I couldn't expect that kind of "nest" when peeked through the gate on the first day. So peaceful, beautiful garden and nice bungalow. I took many pictures and showed them to my friends - everybody wanted to get to the place. Maybe we have a big family reunion next year in Bucerias!? Thank you for nice hosting Maria, Timo taking care of the garden etc, and the family of the owners´, ready to help what ever happened :-)

Our short week at Bungalow Unelma was paradise. It is all that it looks and more. The tropical gardens are beautiful, the open-air kitchenette and lounging space comfortable and cozy, the private, easy-access, beach peaceful, and all with the glorious sound of the sea to drift off to sleep with. There is lots to see and do in the area and plenty of interesting eating places to explore nearby. We found Nazario and his staff to be warm and helpful and hope to return soon!

We love this place so much we are coming back next year and staying longer. We have a time share down the beach which we are not even going to use because we enjoy Unelma so much more. The owners are wonderful people who make sure you are comfortable and welcome and the staff (Maria and Timiteo) make sure the bungalows and the grounds are immaculate. On the beach, close to everything, unique and comfortable.

We had a very nice long weekend on the beach in Bucerias. We were greeted at Bungalows Unelma by Patty who made us feel welcome and totally at home. We really liked the garden setting of this place and the location is perfect. We found our bungalow very comfortable EXCEPT that our unit’s bedroom had a common wall with the restaurant. While this was not a problem in the morning/day there was significant noise until about 11 p.m. each night. We found if we turned the bedroom ceiling fan on high it would pretty well drown out the noise. The other two units seem to be far enough away from the restaurant that noise wouldn’t be a problem.

We just returned from the Bungalows and had a perfect 6 days in paradise!! We stayed in the top bungalow, which was perfect!! The bedroom has an open ceiling and the ocean lulls you to sleep. The grounds of the bungalows are beautiful and well maintained (filled with orchids, bougainvillea, etc.). Our evening entertainment was watching the geckos catch gnats under the lights (forget TV or radio). The beach is private, clean and quiet. The bungalows are in a residential area of Bucerias, not far from the All Inclusive Resort (but far enough away not to be bothered by it). The town of Bucerias is very charming, plenty of restaurants and shopping. Be sure to grab a taco from the carts in the town square...by far our FAVORITE meals!! If you are looking for a true getaway...this is the PLACE! As a side note, if you do book with the Bungalows, they require payment via Western Union...it's perfectly legit and safe.

If you'd like to see more photos, drop me an email, I'd be happy to send you a link to our photos on kodakgallery...had trouble posting up to tripadvisor.
