I stayed almost one month at Hotel Arigalan and I loved it. It's placement on top of a hill gives you outstanding views of the sea in all directions. There are wonderful small sitting areas spread out everywhere so you can always find a charming place to be on your own. It's also far from the main road, which is...

This place is cozy, independent and greatly placed on top of a hill. You can watch the sunrise in the mornings, and sunsets in the evenings. The owner takes particular care of the place, and love spreads through every inch of the hotel. Eye to detail, attention, care...outstanding! I loved my time there, I actually felt "at home". There's a...

My friend and I had a wonderful 4-night stay at Hotel Arigalan. It's a quick walk to almost anywhere in Mazunte but also far enough away to feel like you're coming home at the end of the day. The host, Rose, was wonderfully accommodating and made everything easy. We spend New Years Eve at the hotel, and Rose cooked us...

The owner, sonia, is very nice and rooms (small) are tidy and clean with AC. Full Access to shared kitchen and refrigerator. View is nice from every room and from hotel roof top for a 360 degree on all surrounding beaches. Beds are really confortable. Nice place to relax and read. People come here for the tranquility. Don't forget to...

I was waiting for a friend who was staying at this hotel during a silent retreat we were both participating in nearby. Even though the owner knew I couldn't speak, she repeatedly harassed and yelled at me to leave her property, saying "go back to where you're from". It was totally unnecessary and plain rude. She has no respect or...

Lots of up and down walking if you stay here. Located about 10 minutes from the beach midway between Mazunte and San Augustinillo. Underfurnished very plain rooms and marginal service. For the area, the hotel is quite overpriced. It costs no more to stay on the beach where the ambiance and breezes are much more pleasant.

Beautiful location and Rose is a most gracious host. Highly recommend this hotel. We stayed for 3 weeks and enjoyed every second. A week of the stay involved a yoga retreat which we organized with the help of Rose. We then had an additional 2 weeks of R & R. We'll be back in Feb/March 2016 to host another yoga...

The dark room at Hotel Arigalan is a beautiful traditional cave made from rock. The door opens to beautiful coastal views. It is difficult to put such a profound experience into words, for that is asking the mind to grasp something which it can not. It is said that surrender is one of the most powerful tools on the spiritual...

Rose is absolutely one of the most attentive, caring, and approachable hosts I have ever encountered in my world travels. Love to you Rose.
