Welcome to Villa Dorado in Sayulita! Villa Dorado is a 4 bedroom home located on the exclusive north side of town.  Villas del Palmar is a private, gated, beachfront community, with 24 hour onsite security.  You can't beat the location, 5 minute easy walk to downtown, but just far enough away to avoid the noise and the crowds. Enjoy your time in and around the large beachfront swimming pool, soak in the amazing sunset views, and make the most of the surf break, with perfect waves just steps away from your door.

Sayulita’s downtown, where you are treated to some of the best dining, shopping, and people watching in all of Riviera Nayarit, is only a 5 minute walk away. With everything Sayulita has to offer close at hand, and no steep hills to climb, this location simply can’t be beat.

Fully renovated in 2018 and brought to life with professional interior design adding warmth and contemporary Mexican finishes, Villa Dorado gets clean energy from an 18-panel solar array.

Villa Dorado features open-air living, with the lounging, dining and kitchen spaces open to enjoy the tropical environment making for a truly unique holiday experience. The sleeping and bathroom spaces are fully secured and air conditioned for your ultimate privacy and comfort. There is wifi throughout the villa, and each suite comes with a beach umbrella, beach chairs and beach towels.  Our housekeeper comes in 5 days per week to clean and make sure you are comfortable.

When renting the entire 4 bedroom home, Villa Dorado is perfect for groups travelling together, as the home is separated into suites by floor meaning each couple or family can enjoy their own private spaces while still being able to hang out together and enjoy each others company when it suits you.

Dorado B, situated on the second level, accommodates 4 people. It features 2 separate bedrooms (each with queen beds) and private ensuite bathrooms. Each space locks off individually and is independently climate controlled. The shared, open-air living space features two relaxing lounge areas for reading and taking advantage of the traditional daily siesta. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and has 4 bar stools to enjoy social gatherings around the expansive kitchen island. All this around your dedicated dining area makes for a contemporary suite that will help make your holiday a most memorable one.

Dorado Penthouse is a gem, accommodating up to 3 people. Sitting high atop Villa Dorado, this is a massive, 2-level suite featuring a gorgeous lounge area, fully equipped kitchen, complete with sit-up bar against quartz countertops, a dishwasher and all the conveniences and comforts of home. The top level features your own private rooftop terrace, perched high in the palm trees and with surreal ocean views. The sound of the ocean along with the birds and overall tranquility really make this a special space to relax and soak up the Sayulita experience. The secured, climate controlled master suite feature a King Size bed adjacent to a large sliding glass door for that peaceful, soothing open-air feel yet totally private. This space also features an ensuite bathroom and separate lounging area for catching up on email and maybe some Netflix time. If you are holidaying with another couple, a truly unique feature of the Dorado PH is its ability to rent it in tandem with Robalo PH.

Excellent location on the beach in Sayulita
The Dorado villa in Sayulita was clean, comfortable, and modern with everything you could possibly need on a vacation. Noah the property manager was prompt in responding when we needed him & so friendly and helpful. The property itself is just a very short stroll through the villa complex to the pool & the beach. Laura kept the place spotless. My family had all 3 floors of the villa which is so great for multiple families. I stayed in the penthouse which was my favorite floor. The rooftop was perfect for morning coffee & yoga and for evening margs while watching the sunset. Would definitely recommmend this property. The shuttle service that Eric can arrange for you to and from the airport was also very convenient.

Straight out of a magazine
Seriously. the penthouse looked like it was straight out of a magazine at first glance, it is beautiful! My favorite was the rooftop where I did yoga every morning while listening to the birds.It sits in the perfect location, on the beach yet far enough from the crowds. The pool was cool and refreshing - perfect for after a day on the beach. It was great to have beach towels to take with us for beach days. The AC and fans were so nice to have. The architecture was beautiful and had everything we needed for an awesome stay. They even provided bug spray and produce cleaner. The maid was lovely - don't forget to leave her a tip! Eric arranged transportation for us. He was great and so easy to work with!

Amazing experience
The Penthouse was incredible, clean and super comfortable. We loved spending time on the outdoor living area. The bedroom always stayed super quiet. It is equipped with everything you need either to relax in the unit or for a day on the beach. A huge perk was the secure parking! Best beach margaritas are right in front at La Sirenas bar! Highly recommend this unit.

Outstanding Host, Amazing House
Eric was an excellent host and the house overall was a dream. From the moment we arrived in Puerto Vallarta, Eric had everything arranged for our stay in Sayulita, including transportation to and from the airport. The place is clean, modern and spacious - perfect for two couples or a family of 4. We ate breakfast and spent most of our days lounging in the outdoor kitchen/living area. We loved the touch of the local decor, from a shop in town! The pool was great for my young daughter. Nighttime was quiet and calm - listening to the waves crash on the shore was a treat. We never had to worry about a thing which is exactly how vacation should go! We really enjoyed our stay thanks to Eric!

In LOVE with Villa Dorado/Robalo
We fell in love with Sayulita, and are so happy we chose Villa Dorado. The location was perfect. It is in a gated little community that is right on the beach with a pool and security guard (even though we never felt unsafe). We walked 5 minutes to the heart of Sayulita each day to eat and shop, although there are also restaurants and an ice cream shot across the street. The beach is perfect, not crowded and we enjoyed the lounge chairs at the end of the property by the beach to watch the sunset each day. Incredible food, people and feel in this little beach/surf town. Eric and Ben were incredible. They helped us with our every need, even getting an iron ASAP for us because we were attending a wedding. The place was very clean and had maid service daily, extra clorox wipes in kitchen and bathroom, as well as the kitchen being fully stocked for us to make breakfast each day. The patio/kitchen space could not be cuter and more enjoyable to relax on and listen to the birds. I could say a million great things about why we loved renting at Villa Dorado. We were on the penthouse, but all 3 levels are darlingly decorated, clean and location is perfect. Rent here for the perfect Sayulita experience. You won't regret it!
