Paradise Found
Villa Pelicanos exceeded all expectations. Our group consisted of 8 adults and 6 grandchildren ages 3 months - 9 years old. We felt extremely safe and protected. It was truly a slice of heaven. Marianna, Nancy and Nomi provided fabulous breakfasts and dinners. Jessie kept our rooms fresh and clean everyday. The views are breathtaking. Thank you Theo and Javier for providing golf carts, yoga instructors, and helping in any way.

I left my heart at Villa Pelicanos
I intuitively knew this property would be special and I was right. In my years of traveling, I have not felt more connected to a property than Villa Pelicanos. It was almost surreal.

As we drove through the charming village of Sayulita - we entered the drive to the property and were greeted by property manager Teo, and house manager Javier. They graciously welcomed me and gave me a tour of the property.

With every villa and space I discovered, it was a continual 'OMG' moment, with each view, each area taking my breath away.

The property is massive, pristinely cared for, immaculately clean, peaceful and energetically next level.

The planning prior to the trip was fantastic, with manager Teo giving us exceptional pointers and recommendations for the private chef (Daniel), massage therapists who came on property daily (Nancy amazing), and yoga instructor (Nara) - we designed the getaway as a true retreat for my friends and clients, and glad we did - as we really did not want to leave the property at all.

Marianna (Javier's wife) prepared delicious breakfasts daily for us, and she was so lovely and kind.

We prepared a few meals in their fully equipped kitchen.

The location seems SO remote like you are almost on your own island, however was just a 5 min golf cart ride into town for great shopping, restaurants and the experience of Sayulita.

A piece of my heart was left behind at Villa Pelicanos, and I cannot wait to go back.

Exceeded all Expectations!
12 of my closest friends/family and I celebrated my 50th birthday at Villa Pelicanos. I started looking for a villa around 9 months prior and I landed on Villa Pellicanos because the pictures looked great and its property features and location to Sayulita made it sound very appealing.

Well, from the minute we all stepped on the property, we were left speechless. Everything is gorgeous The kitchen/dining room area, inifnity pool and meeting area/game room are at the top of a hill with a 360 view of the ocean, Sayulita and the jungle. It's like a movie set. then you follow a path to hit all of the casitas. You'll find the main Casita w/ 4 different bedrooms all having a gorgeous view of the ocean and town. then 4 more individual casitas all with a view. So much better than the photos. The architecture is gorgeous and the grounds are expertly maintained w/ flowers blossoming everywhere. We spent most of the 5 days of my vacation just hanging out on the property as it was so relaxing to sit poolside or read in the game room area. We also used Mariana to cook 4 out of the 5 dinners. Her food was always fantastic - we had chicken mole, shrimp enchiladas, fish tacos. We planned the first meal ahead of time and then met with her the first day to plan food the rest of the time. And breakfast is included - every morning she put out coffee, 3 juices, yogurt and granola. Mariana accommodated diet restrictions and even made a gluten free/dairy free carrot cake for my birthday!

The villa was extremely clean and the staff was very friendly. Juan the property manager was always available for help.

The property is about 10 minutes walk to the edge of Sayulita and 20 minutes to the opposite end of town (there's a hotel with a yoga studio there we hit daily and it was a good 20 minute walk.) We never used our car once we landed but I can see why some folks may want to use golf carts. The once criticism I saw of the place is that it is not for folks with any challenges walking -would agree with that - but otherwise the hills were not that challenging. (I am from Seattle though.;)

One concern I had with having 12 people together was whether it would feel like there was enough space for people to hang out or have some alone time without feeling all on top of each other. Well, the property is huge and there was plenty of room to go find a corner to read or lay out.

How often in this age of hype does one have their expectations so grandly exceeded? They were for all of 12 of us!

Best weekend getaway with my girlfriends
I booked Villa Pelicanos with 7 of my girlfriends for a friend's birthday weekend. From the moment we arrived the Villa and Cabanas exceeded our expectations. The property is incredible, lush, and tropical. The infinity pool common area were perfect to hang, eat, and swim. And each cabana had it's own unique style and ocean view. There was so much space we didn't know what to do with all of it. The private beach was also a great addition. And the cobblestone stairs and paths that led through the property were charming and yes- you do have to walk a bit but we thought of it as a way to work off all the margaritas we were drinking. Ha! Juan and the house staff team were on top of all of our needs and requests. We had most meals at the Villa and the food was fantastic. Our rooms and common areas were cleaned every morning and we felt very safe since Javier (the groundskeeper) lives on the property. Everything that Hana set up for us- yoga, massages, transport, was all top quality and the convenience of having everyone come to the villa was perfect for our short trip. I would definitely return to the villa, but next time I would bring more friends!

Amazing place in Sayulita, perfect location, perfect format
We had a fantastic time at Villa Pelicanos. . a group of 16 (8 couples). The cooks were amazing and grounds were as described. . Perfect location close by but quiet! Very secure and cool layout for this including a semi private beach area. Pictures don’t do this place justice. Host was very helpful and accommodating. Do yourself the favor and get the cooks! They are amazing!

Very comfortable for 7 couples. With the 8th We doubled up one of the casitas (they have an extra room attached). . So one couple shared a bathroom but was great format for us! Highly recommended!

This was our first visit to the area. . and when we come back we will stay here again for sure!

Superb luxury Village
This was our first trip to Sayulita and there is no other place I would have rather stayed than the Villa Pelicanos. The grounds were expansive and large enough to fit five families comfortably. Each family had their own casita and there was ample common area to play and dine. The staff were friendly and the chefs Marianna & Ilda were incredible. They were overly accommodating to our food allergies and vegan families. The location is a short walk or golf cart ride in to town, no more than 10 minutes. I would HIGHLY recommend this property for any large group looking for luxurious accommodations that want privacy yet the ability to be immersed in the Mexican culture.

The pictures do not do this place justice!!!
Villa Pelicanos is absolutely amazing! We stayed there with five families with young children and loved it. Each family had their own luxury palapa and we were plenty spread out so that we had lots of privacy. The grounds and units are way more beautiful than the pictures even begin to let on. The pool is great for kids and there is even a gate that locks to keep the toddlers from wandering in. We ended up hiring the cook for the entire time and the food was both fabulous and affordable. Her meals were way better and way cheaper than anything we had in town. The property manager was accessible and made arrangements for our transportation from PV and the onsite staff was super friendly and helpful. The villas are a 10 minute walk from town, which is a perfect distance to feel completely separate from the bustling chaos (and loud nightlife) but close enough to head in a couple times a day. The only thing worth mentioning is that the villas are spread out on a steep hill and this place would be hard for elderly people and impossible for somebody in a wheelchair. I personally liked that we had to walk steps multiple times a day because it meant we weren't completely lazy all week, but others might have a hard time with it. If you are even remotely fit, it is well worth it and you absolutely cannot beat this place!!!

The absolute best location in all of Sayulita!
"Having gotten to know the lay of the land on 2 trips to Sayulita, I can now say with confidence that Villa Pelicanos is the absolute best location in all of Sayulita. It's just removed enough from town to give you the sense of luxurious privacy and quiet at night, yet at easy walking distance. Playa de los Muertos, at the base of the property, is a beautiful, uncrowded beach that's perfect for swimming and a welcome escape from the crowds and vendors on the main beach.
The accommodations are comfortable and tasteful, and it can hold a large group while still giving everyone their sense of privacy. The buildings have a beautiful sense of design, from the local tile work that runs throughout the buildings, to the vibrant colors in the paint trims and fabrics, and the masterful brickwork in the vaulted kitchen ceiling. Every window looks out on a post-card perfect view. The indoor-outdoor feel of the rooms is just the way you want to be living when the weather is so lovely day and night.
Villa Pelicanos provides the best of hotel service and the comfort of home. With Javier and Mariana on the property, we felt safe and knew we could have our questions answered, and would have help in case of any emergencies. They are warm and friendly, eager to help and even teach us to mix the best margaritas! We loved having the chef services for some of our meals, while being able to prepare our own meals or go to restaurants in town at other times.
The maid service was excellent, and the property is maintained with careful attention to details. Hana and Juan were very helpful in making the preparations for our arrival, and checking in on us during our stay. They take pride in this home as though it is theirs, and want their guests to have the very best experience. For our family gathering of 14 people, we felt we had found heaven on earth. "

Spectacular spot to spend a special vacation!
We celebrated my 40th here with 10 friends and it was absolutely perfect. From the wonderful staff to the beautiful casitas in which everyone has an equally private, romantic experience, to the stunning private beach, to the incredible views, every moment at Villa Pelicanos was blessed with a magical quality. we could venture into town or escape back to our luxury oasis... the chefs and staff were very sweet and accommodating. I highly recommend this place, worth every penny!
