An unforgettable stay
My husband and I stayed at El Palacio for a week at the end of May. The property description and photographs were amazing but when we saw it in person, it took our breath away. Spectacular! The property is architecturally stunning and decorated beautifully with Mexican hand made furniture and gorgeous textiles. It is an open house – the pool, the lounge area and the kitchen is all open to the environment and is stunning. The Master bedroom has Nano style sliding doors and can be completely open or closed if you like to sleep with air-conditioning. The master bath was out of this world! You take a shower and stare at the view and listen to the waves, unforgettable. We found the house to be very well ventilated; the architect who designed this place put a lot of thought to create a natural air floor throughout the house, we thought. We did not feel the need to use air-conditionning and only used it in the bedroom at night.
My husband and I chose this house and the location for privacy and tranquility and we found it! The North part of the beach is just so much more beautiful and special in our opinion. The sand is finer; beach is cleaner and no crowds. The house has an elevator so you can travel from floor to floor, or simply use the stairs as we did. The bedroom is on the top (4th) floor, the 3rd floor below has the living/lounge area, kitchen and infinity swimming pool as well as one bedroom, the 2nd floor has 2 bedrooms and game room with pool and bridge table and the first floor has the walkway to the beach, its 15 seconds walk and you’re there. They had chairs and umbrellas for guest use. You would walk to the beach by Casa Milagros, which looks amazing also. We loved the pool and spent hours swimming and just gazing at the horizon. You can ask Araceli, the housekeeper to make you meals and Jesus – the groundskeeper took us to town in his car once. But most of the time we walked on the beach (10 minutes) to town to have dinner or shop (The Galleria La Hamaca on Revolucion street had the best gifts and textile goods). And, the Panino - the bakery and the Taco stand across from it were our absolutely favorites. The whole time we stayed in Sayulita we felt very safe in town, walking on the beach at night and at the house. We highly recommend it.
