Close to everything
Very helpful staff. This was my first time in Sayulita and I will be back when I do I will stay at Hotel Hafa again. I was there for a wedding and when my ride never showed up the owner gave me a ride out of his way so I wouldn't be late. Perfect location to everything in town.

Es un hotel hecho con amor, se nota que todos los detalles fueron planeados y pensados para crear una atmósfera cálida y agradable. La terraza es un lugar mágico. Fue muy disfrutada mi estancia y superó mis expectativas. Lo recomiendo ampliamente. Además el trato es muy sonriente y dispuesto.

Absolutely Loved Hotel Petit Hafa!
Just returned from the most wonderful stay in Sayulita and the Hotel Petit Hafa was beyond impressive! Such amazing and beautiful decor, clean and centrally located! Very comfortable in every way and very much enjoyed the rooftop lounge and bar next door for amazing margaritas with fresh grapefruit juice and habanero chili peppers. Highly recommended!

Hip but noisy
Don't expect to sleep, at least not during the holiday week of our lady of Guadalupe (December 8-13). Semi-unfriendly staff. Vibe is that your entering into the owners domain and you shouldn't make things too inconvenient for them. Maybe you shouldn't talk to them either, or at least do not make eye contact. Large, blow up posters of their children in your room serve to remind you that this isn't the guests space. Clean hotel, interesting look, and free drink didn't make up for our lack of sleep.

Very charming, but...
We booked 2 rooms at the Hotel Hafa for early August. The hotel is very charming and would have been exactly what we wanted, but there was no AC. It turns out that some of the rooms have AC, some don't, and although it was advertised on the website and confirmed by email that our rooms would have AC, it wasn't available. The weather in Sayulita in August is very hot (95-ish) and humid, so we moved to a different hotel which had AC. Christophe understood our dilemma and refunded the cost of our remaining days, though he did deduct the cost of running the refund through PayPal, which I think was about $20.00. Under the circumstances, I think we should have been given a full refund, but I didn't want to haggle. We enjoyed our stay in Sayulita, and would love to stay at the Hafa another time, but in different rooms.

Charming and warm
Hotel Petit Hafa is a great place to stay. Very good location near the zocalo (town square), beautiful, clean, charming and warm with a touch of elegance and originality. The owners Marina and Christophe are very nice people, their staff is courteous, friendly and welcoming. I have stayed there twice over the 3 times I've been to Sayulita and I will return. Don't miss out on their little bar right next door, which is a cozy place to enjoy the best Margaritas in town, meet nice people and enjoy a pleasant evening. Miss it already!

Highly recommend it! - specially to women traveling alone.
This was my first time traveling to Mexico and by myself! I discovered this beautiful Petit Hotel d'Hafa in the internet, which
I highly recommend, specially to women traveling by themselves. It's very safe, comfortable and very chic! Think of home
away from home. It is close to the plaza, surrounded by little restaurants, the beach and beautiful people that want to make
your acquaintance. Some friends that I met in Sayulita, came to see the hotel and like me, fell in love with it. They were
sorry they did not book here first.
I had the time of my life!
Thank you Christophe and Marina for a wonderful stay!

Great Adventure
February 2012, first time to Sayulita, by myself, the HAF was a great place to meet other travelers, hang out. GREAT hotel.....location, a great value, I will stay here again this fall. Plus, Sayulita is like going back to the 1950's, safe, friendly people (US, Canandian, and Mexicans)!!!!

Fabulous, beautiful, safe hotel!
Basic but stylish rooms that are both gorgeous and clean. The rooftop terrace is stunning - it's partly covered so that you can sit in the shade, it has huge couches and sun chairs, and there's always a complimentary bottle of tequila to drink! We honestly couldn't have picked a better place to stay in Sayulita. There's also a beautiful little shop attached to the hotel that sells amazing pearl jewelry.

Absolute perfection...
My husband and I just came back from staying here and we were so impressed. This hotel is clean, comfortable, and so gorgeous. The rooftop lounge is such a great way to end a long day of surfing - they have these colourful couches under a beautiful canopy and you can just relax in the heat for a little...
We particularly enjoyed the fact that we were given coffee every morning (and I didn't read this anywhere on the website so it was a nice surprise) and there was clean drinking water for us as well. You certainly are close to everything and it's only 2 minutes to the beach through the town square. The couple that owns it is so beautiful - we met their children while surfing on the beach - and it was relaxing and homely to be around them. Everyone was so friendly and the price certainly is right. I recommend this hotel with all my heart. You will fall in love with it too.
