Marketing Director Kevin Zarazua emphasizes that El Pueblito truly embodies the sentiment of “mi casa es su casa” and welcomes everyone to the hotel to “Live the Mexican Experience” at El Pueblito Sayulita.
Welcoming its first guests with a soft opening in October of 2017, El Pueblito hotel officially joined the ranks of lodging options in Sayulita. Located at Calle Playa Azul #10, El Pueblito is a boutique hotel, offering 24 large rooms (all with either 2, 4 or 6 beds) all with kitchens, eating areas and living space.
Owner and entrepreneur, Oscar Manzano from Guadalajara describes his new venture as offering “VIP Concierge” service.
“We are a 100% Mexican (smaller) hotel, committed to the environment and the enchanting town of Sayulita. We praise Mexican customs and traditions from the heart of this Pueblo Magico. We feature a cutting-edge concept of a little town hotel with a warm, kind and personalized service.”
El Pueblito maintains that all guests and visitors will be treated with this personalized service equally and wants everyone to feel at home.
The construction of the hotel and its décor are very traditionally Mexican and reflect its surroundings. Receptionist Sayeg Moreno explains that the décor and setting are intended to make a guest feel cozy, a little pampered and also to feel like they are in Mexico, in contrast to other chain hotels that have a more generic feel. Sayeg explains that it is the hotel’s intent to interact with the city and the ambiance of Mexico. Last week hosting a meeting of local activist group Pro Sayulita, El Pueblito exemplified its intent to be part of the fabric of the community of Sayulita.
El Pueblito’s Mexican restaurant, Ximena'z, offers breakfast, lunch and dinner poolside and is open to the public. Guests may choose to have all of their meals at the hotel or to enjoy Sayulita’s many, many eateries or to prepare some of their meals in their well-appointed kitchen. The staff stresses that the restaurant is not buffet; everything is a la carte and made fresh for each guest.
All rooms, many of which face the large pool, feature beautiful, solid parota wood tables, fine Mexican crafts and double glass in the windows, which cuts down on any outside noise significantly. The rooms all have their own unique touches and are set up to be like a version of a Mexican home where guests can feel comfortable for longer stays with friends and/or family.
