Looking back on our stay at The Inn at San Pancho/Gato Gordo last winter I can honestly say that it blew away our hopes and expectations. Having travelled with our family to Sayulitas a few times we decided to give San Pancho a try. This time we left the kids at home and it was just my wife/best friend and...

The Inn at San Pancho was the perfect launching point for our group's vacation (stayed 3 nights). The webpage showed exactly what we experienced in terms of the space, and the owner Eileen made our stay easy and comfortable. A perfect hostess. She arranged for 2 twin beds in the sizeable living room area of "Nopal" so our group of...

We’ve stayed at five different places in San Pancho over the past six years and have carefully investigated dozens more. During the 25-30 days that we've actually spent in San Pancho, we've gotten a reasonably good sense of what the town is like and what are the places-to-stay options. Based on this experience, we can confidently say that Inn at...

San Pancho is very laid back and so is Gata Gorda. And yes there is a cat lazing around here. Our suite ( the largest ) was spacious and had great views. Bed was comfie and views were awesome. I loved sitting on the terrace in the morning watching the flocks of birds fly over. A bit pricey for San...

I came here with a friend at the end of November to escape the gray rainy days in Portland, Oregon and to take in the natural beauty and culture of Mexico. We stayed in the Casa Agave which was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The bed was so comfortable and the only thing that got me up in the morning...

The Inn sits high up on hill with great views of the ocean. It is a short walk to restaurants, stores and the beach yet it feels so luxuriously removed. It is very charming with beautiful Mexican decor, flowering shrubs everywhere and a relaxing pool area. The rooms have kitchenettes with coffee and water. The Innkeeper, Eileen is very helpful...

A great place to have a retreat or group get together! The personal attention to detail in each unique villa, fresh towels by the pool, bottled water in each kitchenette, a comfy terry robe, and great books to enjoy make for an effortless relaxing vacation. Eileen, the Inn keeper, was non intrusive yet always available to suggest restaurants, help make...

I just returned from my second visit to The Inn at San Pancho. It just gets better and better. Eileen the innkeeper referred us to many new activities and local day trips to the Marieta Islands on the Chica Locca where we soaked up the sun and culture. I stayed in my little casita Agave with the Bougavilla draping over...

The Inn sets high above the quaint town of San Pancho, overlooking the ocean and the beautiful sunsets. After a day of sightseeing or horseback riding, The Inn is an oasis! The tropical flowers and lush greens surround the property, creating a tranquil setting for relaxation and restoration. The Villas are very spacious, comfortable, clean and charming! We look forward...

My first trip to San Pancho and I cannot imagine a place better to stay. The pool, grounds, accommodations and staff are exceptional. Not to mention Eileen as our hostess made our stay at her inn a memorable week. We just left yesterday and I woke up this morning missing the sounds of rural Mexican life; birds singing, dogs barking,...
