Design & Boutique Feeling At Petit Hotel Hafa
This charming little gem among Sayulita Mexico hotels completely won over our hearts. A family-owned place, the design of this 6-room spot is self-described as “bohemian tropical,” and it very much delivers, with vibrant colors, modern look, focus on details and all-around boho chic feel. Petit Hotel Hafa is decorated with such love, such a personal touch, such feelings for details and mix of colors, styles and fabrics. It is a true heaven for every boutique lover and one of our best places to stay in Sayulita!
Rooms & Other Facilities
In keeping with the hotel’s design, the hotel’s rooms are beautiful and spacious, one of the best places to stay in Sayulita. You can learn a little more about each room on their website. With colors like white, red, pink and orange leading the way, the rest of the hotel facilities are cosy and peaceful, and hanging out in the premises feels like spending time at a friend’s house. There is just one BUT and that is the party noise during the evenings. We recommend you to bring your earplugs for a good night sleep at one of the best Sayulita Mexico hotels!
This little gem is very small so it does not offer so many other facilities but the rooftop is amazing, a perfect spot for some afternoon chill after a long day at the beach. If you want to do some yoga on your own there is also space for you to roll out your yoga mat on the platform next to the decorated space.
Food & Drinks
Although among the best Sayulita Mexico hotels, Petit Hotel Hafa doesn’t actually have a restaurant. However, there are plenty of breakfast places right outside. The town is pretty small, so basically all restaurants are near the best places to stay in Sayulita.
From minute one, it’s clear this is a family-owned place, as the owners place the utmost care in making their guests feel at home. The owners’ story alone puts this among the best Sayulita Mexico hotels!
Petit Hotel Hafa has a great location only two blocks from the beach in a very pretty street. However, as mentioned above, there’s one downside to one of the best Sayulita Mexico hotels: there’s a pub nearby, so it’s really noisy at nights.

Design & Boutique Feeling
Our AirBnb was a really cute apartment with a cool feel to it, even though not among Sayulita Mexico hotels. A rustic, industrial vibe and nice, simple and comfy furniture still gave it a good boutique feeling. After 2 months of traveling and staying in hotels, it was great to check into our own home. We loved being able to cook and have some more space to relax and hang out, wash our clothes, all just a couple of minutes from the beach. That’s what sets AirBnBs apart from other best places to stay in Sayulita.
Room & Other Facilities
The apartment is a relatively big, and comfortable enough for two people to stay in, with an open kitchen and living room, a relatively big bedroom and a small bathroom. The setup is pretty modern and it includes all the necessary equipment of the best places to stay in Sayulita. Also, of course, having a kitchenette is always a plus when it comes to feeling at home during your travels. There is also a washing machine outside in the yard, a commodity you won’t usually find in Sayulita Mexico hotels.
Food & Drinks
As it’s an apartment, you’re on your own regarding food; however, there are a number of breakfast places just outside. One of the town’s best pizza places is steps away, so even better than many Sayulita Mexico hotels. One of the things that makes this one of the best places to stay in Sayulita is that the pretty little town is just 5-7 min walk away, where you can find great restaurants!
The host was friendly and gracious when welcoming us, for an experience not unlike the best Sayulita Mexico hotels. There is free water, a bottle of wine and sun chairs as well as a mid-board in the apartment. The very great extra service made us feel at home in this gem of the best places to stay in Sayulita!
The location is what makes this one of the best places to stay in Sayulita! It’s outside the busy downtown area, which makes for quiet evenings away from the village noise and partying, falling asleep to the sound of the waves. There are also a number of restaurants nearby, as well as a yoga shala, so a better location than many Sayulita Mexico hotels. The beach is only a 3-minute walk from the apartment, and you can reach the town center after walking for 5 to 7 minutes!
