Editor’s Review of Hotel Cielo Rojo

A rugged cobblestone side street in the village of Riviera Nayarit's San Francisco sets the stage for the simplicity and practicality of the Cielo Rojo. This lovely little boutique inn has just nine pleasant and very functional guestrooms, providing absolutely everything you need to be comfortable, but nothing over the top. Families who will enjoy this inn and town are those who enjoy an authentic and rural Mexican experience.

A tiny garden accented with driftwood art greets guests at the front entrance. The emphasis on the natural, organic world continues throughout the public spaces of the hotel. Sunlight streaming through overhead skylights nourishes the many plants in the lobby and dining room while enhancing the warmth of
... more yellow and tangerine colored walls. Cielo Rojo means "red sky."

Two small bistro tables on the front sidewalk and a book sharing box outside are indicative of the intimate nature of the inn and the emphasis on community services. Many families who come to San Francisco do so to volunteer at the award-winning community center or participate in the children's circus supported by Cirque de Soleil.

You'll also find a polo field in town and an energetic town square, but otherwise, San Francisco, sometimes called San Pancho, is a quiet little community that embraces the beach and the gifts of Mother Nature. This region is recognized as a superior bird watching area, especially in the winter months when the North American birds migrate to the warmth of Mexico. less

There are four rooms with two double beds, sleeping up to four guests. One of the units has two rooms, capable of sleeping four and providing some privacy for mom and dad from the kids and vice versa. As a small hotel, only one crib is available (free), so be sure to request one at the time of registration. The majority of the rooms are located on the second and third floors, which have public reading areas with books and games. There is one room on the first floor.

The owners of the Cielo Rojo are avid collectors of antiques from Mexico and the American Southwest, so each room is decorated in its own unique style. Antique quilts cover some beds and photos of Native American Indians adorn the walls.

Despite the lovely antiques, the décor is minimalist at best in each room, though cozy. You have just what you need and nothing more -- a bed, dresser and a nightstand. In some rooms, the beds are without headboards and are simply pushed against the wall. There aren't any TVs, DVD players, radios, iPod docking stations, refrigerators or mini-bars. The same is true with bathrooms -- colorful and eclectic décor, but a simple, sink, shower and toilet with no wasted space or unnecessary trappings. A few rooms have small balconies; others have Juliette balconies, but all have spacious windows providing abundant natural light.
