I spent 6 days at Casa Mermejita in February with my boyfriend and we stayed in the Triangle and Oval rooms which were both beautiful (the triangle was slightly cooler thanks to a sea breeze: It's elevated and is best to sleep with the balcony doors wide open for the incredible view over the ocean).
The architecture is gorgeous and designed by owner Jorge who is into classic British brutalist style with a bohemian, rustic twist.
Each room is beautifully designed and tranquil.
Gorgeous sea views from all bedrooms. The sunsets are incredible.
Rooms were cleaned every day and breakfast was served whenever we got up (fruit and toast with coffee and squeezed juice, a few pesos extra for eggs/pancakes/other requests).
Wifi is fast (for Mexico) and available all throughout the rooms, breakfast and open areas
The staff at Casa Mermejita are polite, respectful and helpful. Service is laidback so it's not like there's a strict 8am-10am breakfast window, or cleaning schedule: they worked around us.
Bobby the dog is super sweet too :)
You should know:
There are a lot of steps up to Casa Mermejita. It didn't really bother us though, just might be a problem for people with mobility issues..
Despite the beautiful bathrooms (amazing tub in oval room) there is no hot water (which is common, most hotels in the area don't). My boyfriend had a couple of health issues while we were there (nothing serious) and needed access to hot water and medical supplies, this was a little difficult but Jorge did everything he could to help us and was very kind.
Mosquitoes were kind of an issue at night (the nets over the beds could have been longer/upgraded) but it was mostly fine.
Mazunte is a sleepy, hippie town, so it's nice to have a car to try other restaurants and beaches further up the coast.
Overall a really fantastic rural retreat, we both work hard and this was the perfect escape we needed, super romantic and relaxing. Thanks to everyone at Casa Mermejita, will remember this forever :-)
