Welcome to Villa Robalo in Sayulita, a stunning 4 bedroom home in the beachfront complex of Villas del Palmar.

Villa Robalo is 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 Robalo gets clean energy from an 18-panel solar array.

Villa Robalo 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.

Villa Robalo is a 4 bedroom home, consisting of 3 separate suites, perfect for groups travelling together. 

Robalo A, ground level, accommodates 4 people and has been designed with families in mind. It consists of one bedroom (queen bed) + a den with bunk beds (full-size bottom + single top). One fully equipped bathroom sits between the open flow from bedroom to den. You have a fully equipped kitchen, with sit-up bar for 4 people, a very relaxing lounge space and a spacious dining area. The ground level access is perfect for families who may have strollers and want simpler access to the pool and the beach.

Robalo B, situated on the second level, accommodates 4 people. It features two separate bedrooms, each with a queen bed and private ensuite bathroom. Each space locks off individually. 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.

Robalo Penthouse is a gem, accommodating up to 3 people. Sitting high atop Villa Robalo, this is a massive, 2-level suite featuring a gorgeous lounge area, a 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. The sounds and view 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, air-conditioned sleeping quarters feature a queen bed adjacent to a large sliding glass door for that peaceful, soothing open-air feel while being totally private. This space also features an ensuite bathroom and a separate den for lounging or catching up on email and maybe some Netflix time.  There is also a fold-out couch in there where a 3rd person could sleep. If you are vacationing with another couple, a truly unique feature of the Robalo Penthouse is the ability to rent it in tandem with Dorado Penthouse next door. There is a shared door, locked off from each side, that can be opened allowing guests to socialize and flow through to each suite when rented together.  Click this link to see the listing for the two penthouses.

Perfect spot for our large family
Sayulita, Mexico, I’m hooked! What a safe, fun, and relaxing place to visit. I’m so thankful to have found Villa Robalo; I stayed in the entire Villa with my immediate and extended family (11 people total) the first week of July. It was perfect for all members of our family including my two kids (as young as 2) and my dad (as old as 80!). Villa Robalo is such a unique, boutique, cozy and spacious place. Furthermore, the artwork and interior design is trendy and modern; I loved the partial indoor / outdoor style, allowing the nature to be projected inwards into the shared spaces (living room, kitchen) and to have the bedrooms inside with locked doors cooled by AC.

Everything my family and I needed was available and more; we had basic necessities for the bathroom like towels, shampoo, and soap, as well as beach items like towels, chairs and umbrellas. It was also great having appliances to make cooking easier (ex. stove, smoothie blender, coffee maker, etc.). My favourite feature throughout my stay was having the cleaner keep the place spotless multiple days!

Finally, the location is great! The home is safely gated and protected by security guards; the pool is a few steps away with a shallow end (great for kids) and deeper end with pool toys and floating devices. The beach is a few steps further down from the pool and is clean, not busy, and has just the right amount of vendors (ex massage, beach bar). You can easily walk 10 minutes to the city center / main beach or use a golf cart and it will take half the time. Overall, there were so many great restaurants just outside the gates (ex. seafood at El Jackal, breakfast at Northside Cafe, and ice cream tacos at Rollado).

Perfect getaway for our family
My family and I spent a marvelous week in the Robalo B apartment which is well appointed, elegantly designed and comfortable. The maid kept it impeccably clean and well stocked with coffee, towels, water, etc., and both Eric and Ben were very solicitous and helpful in providing tips and addressing our needs. The compound in which Robalo B sits is ideally situated in the more quiet north end of town, with a pool, deck chairs and access to a beautiful stretch of beach. It was great value and made for an unforgettable holiday. We will definitely return and have recommended it to friends.

Awesome location + Great Staff
We just spent a week in this lovely location on the quieter side of what has become a terribly overcrowded tourist town. Our Penthouse villa was well appointed - right down to beach chairs and an umbrella. The unit has a private upper terrace with 2 x vast chaises + umbrella and with a bit of neck craning - a sea view. It turned out to be one of the few peaceful havens in Sayulita. The bedroom is spacious with a very comfortable King bed. The bathroom is somewhat grim with a nasty, cramped sink area. The "office" is the perfect spot for luggage.

The exterior "living space" consisting of kitchen and "living room" is open air - open to sides and neighbours sight and sound. If you are comfortable with this level of exposure - you will love it. If you are surrounded by drunken yahoos - it will be onerous. Sadly the latter was our plight!

The property is beautifully located. A short 40 second walk down the inner road and you are at the beach. Preceded by a handsome pool, garden with nice chaises. Amazing! Property manager Eric, his assistant Ben and the lovely maid Laura are the very best. Hard-working, responsive and caring. We could not have been more pleased with them.

Do note the following: Sayulita may have been a sleepy charming town once upon a time. Sadly no longer. Over the Xmas/Ano Nuevo period it is chock full of visitors both local and foreign. The beaches are jammed, the streets clogged. If you seek tranquil - this is not your town. If you seek action, lively, drinking and partying...this is your place.

10/10 to the staff and thank you to them all for a great visit.

A fantastic vacation spot!
What a fabulous place and in the best part of town in my opinion. The beach isn’t super crowded and you feel it is the perfect distance from town. Great restaurants and margs right beside the complex. It has security and super safe with its own pool over looking the beach. The unit is exactly what you need. Clean and it has everything you could want. The cleaning staff did a great job every day. I would highly recommend staying here and can’t wait to come back. Great vibe in town and super chilled

Fresh & Clean
We stayed in the penthouse and I loved our stylish, clean and modern it is. The decor was beautiful and the overall design makes the penthouse so light and fresh. The bed was super comfortable and even more so with the AC! The pool located right next to the beach was a huge plus. We loved the location as it was just out of the business of downtown but a quick walk to the action. Ben, Eric's assistant was super quick to respond and had a ton of insider tips for us. Beautiful home!

I cannot say enough amazing things about this house, I am absolutely obsessed with it. I stayed here with my 19 year old son so let me just say, two separate air conditioned rooms with separate bathrooms was AMAZING. We loved exploring the town but our house was so good we couldn't wait to come back to it at the end of each day. There is security 24/7 at the front entrance so it always felt super safe & secure. The pool which basically sits on the beach was such a treat too. It was honestly paradise. Thank you Eric!
