Imagine staying at a Mexican hotel that has a pool, is within walking distance to the beach and has its very own BMX course onsite! The dirt mountain bike course (also known as a Pump Track) is available and complimentary for guests to use at the Hotel Villas Sayulita. Your pre-teens and teens will love this feature and we can honestly say we don’t know of many hotels that have such an amenity!
In addition to the Pump Track, families will love the small outdoor pool, playground, and the Secret Garden, where there’s always a yoga class taking place, chickens and ducks wandering around and small vegetable gardens.
The suites are simple and the penthouses feature hammocks and palapa roofs; all rooms feature free Wi-Fi. The onsite restaurant and smoothie bar make this Sayulita hotel complete.

My sister and I went on a trip recently to Sayulita for yoga/ girl bonding before her wedding. From the minute I arrived to the minute I left- the staff at Hotel Villas Sayulita bent over backwards to help us. They even went so far as to meet us in a cab when we got lost on a hike! We had a fantastic stay and truly fell in love with the town of Sayulita. We will definitely come back to stay here and I suggest it to everyone :)
I came here to relax and did not appreciate being woken very early in the morning by their rooster. I'm not suggesting you kill it but could you please find him a nice home on a farm. The rooster has to go. Thanks.
BMX Course/Pump Track
A large, dirt course called a Pump Track is located in the rear of the property, just outside the Secret Garden. The hotel provides BMX and mountain bikes, as well as helmets, free of charge. All ages and skill levels are welcome and the course is also open to the community. The mogul type hills and twists and turns around the track will keep kids pedaling for hours.
The pool is situated at the front of the property and is small, but perfect for a splash. Pool towels are provided.
This relaxing green space is located in the center of the property. It's a zen gathering space that features vegetable gardens, a compositing area, smoothie bar, picnic tables and umbrellas, a pond with fish and ducks, chickens, a playground with swings, and plenty of space to run and play.
Paddle boards, boogie boards, surf boards and more are available for rent from the hotel.
While there is no direct beach access from this hotel, the sand and surf are only a short walk away.
The smoothie bar is situated in the center of the courtyard and features delicious drinks all day long before turning into a regular bar in the evenings.
Newly constructed on the edge of the Secret Garden, the onsite restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is included in your stay.

The Best Time to Visit

The Puerto Vallarta International Airport is located less than an hour away from the hotel.
This hotel is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown Sayulita, but only a short walk away from the many restaurants, bars and shops. There are tile and ceramic stairs to reach most of the rooms, but no elevators. Golf cart rentals are available to rent in town.
For Mom and Dad
The adults will love the daily, free yoga classes that take place in the Secret Garden or just off the garden inside the studio. Yoga mats are provided at no additional charge.
Performances take place most Saturday evenings in the Secret Garden.
